** "Shootout" format will change for all remaining races. Instead of three cars each from the winning teams of individual races, we will take ONE car each from first three teams in each individual race and line them up for a 10-lap "Shootout" race. Winner will receive 7 points, 2nd - 6, 3rd - 5, 4th - 4, 5th - 3 and 6th - 2, which will allow for a points bonus to anyone making it into the "Shootout." Teams which don't finish in the top three of their individual race will earn one point each.
