Participating in a minimum of five events will automatically enter you in the series. You will receive an invitation to celebrate with us at the Dirty Series Awards Party and be eligible for series awards. Series points will be awarded based on your overall ranking and your age group ranking by gender. The final race in the series, Dirty Dirty, is weighted and points are multiplied by 1.5 for that event only.
OVERALL SCORING BY GENDER
Events will be scored using a base of 50 points for a 1st place win, 49 for a 2nd place win, 48 for 3rd place, etc. Your highest 5 scores will be totaled to determine your placement overall. Overall winners will not be eligible for age group awards (no double dipping). Top 3 overall will be recognized and receive Dirty Trail Series Awards at the Dirty Party.
AGE GROUP SCORING BY GENDER
Age groups will be scored by gender using a base of 10 points for a 1st place win, 9 for a 2nd place win, 8 for 3rd place, etc. Your highest 5 scores will be summed to determine your age group placement. Age groups are 29 & Under, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, and 70 & Over. Top 3 in each age group will be recognized and receive Dirty Trail Series Awards at the Dirty Party. Age for series scoring is determined by the participant’s age at the last race – Dirty Dirty.
