Eligibility: To become eligible for National Series rankings and rewards, racers need only complete four events to receive a national ranking and qualify for series awards. Due to the growth of the series from just 7 races in 2006 to 15 races in 2013, NUE will now require a minimum of five completed races in order to win a division. You can enter as many events as you like, allowing racers to improve their ranking throughout the season. Your top four completed races will qualify you for a national ranking and series awards courtesy of NUE Series sponsors. Lowest points within your top five completed races will earn an NUE division title, cash awards, and complimentary entry into all races for the 2014 Series.
DNF’s do not count.
Points: Racers earn points towards the series based on their placing within their chosen NUE division. Racers are not allowed to transfer points from one division to another. Racers will earn points as follows: One point for first place, two points for second place, three for third place, etc. The racer with the lowest overall points, within their division, will be declared the National Ultra Endurance Series Champion with cash and prizes awarded at the final race.
Ties: All ties will be broken at the final event. For 2013, the tie breaking event will be held at the Fool’s Gold 100 in Dahlonega, Georgia. However, racers are not required to enter the tie breaking event to become eligible for series awards, provided at least four races have been completed.
