A. Team scoring will be based upon the variance of, actual time to the perfect time, for the class (speed category) entered by individual team members. For example: In the 125 MPH class, the perfect time is 43:12.00. Team member’s actual time is 43:11.00, making a variance of 1.00 second; in the 105 MPH class, the perfect time is 51:25.71. Team member’s actual time is 51:24.21, making the variance 1.50.
B. All team members will receive a score. The best five (5) individual scores (smallest variances) will be added together and the sum will be the team raw score. For example: individual team member scores are.05, .06, 1.0, 1.4, 1.5, 2.0, 2.4, and 3.0. The sum of the best five scores is 5.0; therefore the raw score for the team is 5.0.
C. Penalties will be applied to the raw score. A DQ (Disqualification) will have a 2.0 second penalty added to the team raw score. For example: the team raw score is 5.0, but two (2) team members were DQ’d, thus acquiring 4.0 seconds in penalty points. The final team score is 5.0 plus 4.0 equal 9.0 seconds. DNS (did not start) and DNF (did not finish) are not assessed penalty points.
D. Teams must have at least five team members successfully complete the race to receive a final team score and be eligible for awards.
E. A revolving Trophy will be awarded to the First Place winning team to be kept for a year and brought back the following year. On the trophy will be a plaque with the year and winning team. When each plaque is full the team with the most wins will have the honor of keeping the revolving trophy. All disputes involving awards will be settled by the Team Challenge Coordinator. The Team Challenge Coordinator’s decision will be final. In the event of ties, they will be resolved in favor of the team with the most 1st place finishes, or if still a tie, the most 2nd place finishes, or if still a tie, the most 3rd place finishes.
