Carnesville, GA – FASTRAK Weekly Sanctioned Tracks are split into divisions, based on geography. Weekly Sanctioned Tracks within an area of 50-75 miles are considered a “division”. Each track is awarded $1,000 to go to the “divisional” point fund. If there is one track a $1,000 point fund is paid to those drivers, if there are two tracks, the point fund increases to $2,000 and so on, depending on the number of tracks. If there is only one track in a division, the point fund pays through the top three. Divisions with two or more tracks pay through the top ten.
The FASTRAK Divisional Championships are awarded to the driver in each region who finishes the season with the most points. Division point totals are the total of all races in which a driver competes in that respective region. The Divisional points cut off was Labor Day.
