The season will be a mix of single and heat race formats. The regular season, comprised of the first eight events, will be open to all participants. The 50 participants accumulating the most points over the regular season will qualify to compete in the four-week playoffs. The top 30 in points after the playoffs will advance to a final championship event at the iconic Martinsville Speedway.
