How does it work?
We are making it easy for you to participate in this year's R&R Auto Body “Paint My Ride Program” . If you wish to participate in this year’s program, all you need to do is fill out the following application and return to Nettie via mail, email or stop in guest services at your first points race you attend, and we will take care of the rest!
The R&R Auto Body “Paint My Ride Program” begins on April 25th and will conclude September 26th 2015. Every eligible run will automatically be entered for you, except for ‘fouls’ or ‘red-lights’.
The R&R Auto Body “Paint My Ride Program” program uses an innovative scoring formula that rewards a racer’s consistency and performance over the entire racing season. To win a custom R&R Auto Body paint job a racer must have the best overall score factoring in reaction time, and their dial-in vs. actual E.T. It is similar to a major league pitcher’s ERA where the lowest score is best. A racer must have a minimum of 13 rounds to have their score considered in the final tabulation and ‘foul’, or “red-light” rounds do not count.
Once the minimum number of rounds is fulfilled a driver cannot intentionally move to another class or change their FLC permanent number. Attempting to do so will automatically cuase forfeiture of Paint My Ride points!
The requirements to participate include being a member of the Finish Line Club, fill out the R&R Auto Body entry form and place the appropriate R & R Auto Body Paint My Ride decals on the race vehicle. This decal must be on the vehicle the entire season!
The track will enter the data for those racers who wish to participate in the program. Results will be updated before the following point’s race.
To join the Finish Line Club, a racer needs to contact Customer Service at Summit Motorsports Park. The cost is just $65 per class and also qualifies a racer to be eligible for the ACCEL PERFORMANCE $53,000 + Super Series points fund as well as hundreds of thousands of dollars in contingency payments.
