as the lead riders and be assigned a time and finishing place in the results as “one lap down”.

open for other finishers.

RESULTS

• The results will be posted at www.monthofmud.com as soon as possible.

• The results are not considered official until they appear at www.monthofmud.com

• Racers may view the daily race results after finishing by viewing them over the Finish Line Official’s

shoulder as long as they do not interfere with the Official’s duties and keep the finish line area clear.

AWARDS

• Cash awards will be given out to the top three in each class as the riders finish.

• NOTE: Awards may be delayed a few minutes, as it often becomes hectic around the finish line. Please

remain in the finish area and listen for your name if you think you are in the money.

DROP RACE REGULATIONS, POINTS CLASSIFICATIONS AND SERIES TITLE REQUIREMENTS

• Series points are awarded to the top 15 finishers in each class at each event.

• Points are 15 for first, 14 for second, 13 for third down to 1 for fifteenth.

• One only needs to race in four out of five races to contend for series titles this year. If one races all 5 races, the race in which he/she accumulates the lowest points will be automatically dropped.
