Drivers simply need to register, pay the registration fee, and KOD will take care of the rest.

KOD is open to any track that races Sportsman (Crate or Open), Pro Stock, and Limited Sportsman for 2022. Sportsman Modified and Pro Stock will compete for one crown to rule them all, while Limited Sportsman will have their own points. Continue reading and good luck drivers on your quest to be king!


DRIVER ELIGIBILITY
– Drivers who compete at weekly dirt tracks that run Crate Sportsman, Open Sportsman, Pro Stock, or Limited Sportsman are eligible to compete for KOD points, point funds, and product rewards.
Sportsman Modified (602 Crate or Open): For series purposes this division will be listed as Sportsman Modified. It will consist of drivers registered in the 602 Crate or Open Sportsman divisions. Any driver who competes regularly in a Big Block/Small Block Modified weekly is not eligible to earn KOD points under the Sportsman Modified division. Any Sportsman Modified driver who plans to compete in select Big Block/Small Block events will need to make Competition director of points and scoring aware. Their points will be listed separately for series purposes, but combined with Pro Stock for one overall KOD champion. Top five earning Sportsman Modified drivers will be eligible for bonuses plus the overall.
Pro Stock: Any driver who competes in the Pro Stock division at Northeast dirt tracks is eligible to earn KOD points. Their points will be listed separately for series purposes, but combined with Sportsman Modified for one overall KOD champion. Top five earning Pro Stock drivers will be eligible for bonuses plus the overall.
Limited Sportsman: For series purposes all Limited, Novice, Budget, or Rookie (not true rookie variations) divisions will be listed as Limited Sportsman. Any driver who competes in a Limited Sportsman type division weekly at Northeast dirt tracks is eligible to earn KOD points. Limited Sportsman will have their own point standings and not listed with either Sportsman Modified or Pro Stocks in the overall. Top 10 in final standings will be eligible for point funds.


POINT STANDINGS
– Drivers will earn point standings based on their best 12 finishes from their weekly dirt tracks. KOD is open to any driver from any dirt track in the Northeast. There is no limitation by rule, tire, fuel, sanction, or otherwise. If a driver registers, they are part of the series. All they need do, is compete weekly at their home track(s).
– Any driver competing at multiple tracks or in multiple divisions at one track (example: open and crate sportsman) must register each separately and pay the registration fee for each. Reason This is Required: Some drivers don’t have an opportunity to run multiple nights a week. So allowing combined finishes would put them at a disadvantage. KOD encourages all drivers who can race more than one night a week to register their finishes from each track by paying the fee for each. It gives them more opportunity, but doesn’t penalize the driver who runs just one night a week.
– In the event a drivers track doesn’t reach 12 finishes, they will still be shown in the standings for what they did earn to date. There are many variables out of KOD control such as weather or scheduling.
– If drivers tie in points, KOD will use wins as a tie-breaker. Then seconds, thirds, etc. Drivers are eligible to earn points via their best finishes in ANY EVENT held at their respective track. From the beginning of their track schedule to the end. Example: If a driver has an opportunity to post a best finish in a 200-lap race, we will not limit their opportunity to do so.
– There will be two point listings. One for Sportsman/Pro Stock Combined and one for Limited Sportsman. Please keep in mind, drivers registering multiple tracks will only have their best track listed in the overall point standings.
– KOD Points are real time, however we will update the standings as the season progresses with drivers having the same MINIMUM amount of races scored. EXAMPLE: Once all registered drivers home tracks have had at least one race. This lessens any confusion with rain outs, or one driver having 3 races and another only having one. The point standings won’t look lopsided. Then the race is on to your best 12 finishes! Good luck drivers.


KOD POINT SYSTEM BREAKDOWN
– King Of Dirt Racing has a tried and proven point system that promotes both competitive balance and dramatic title chases. There will also be a one time bonus points offering at seasons end based on a competitors average starting field size. Points will be awarded for KOD series purposes as follows:
Weekly Point System: 1) 100 for first, 2) 97 for second, 3) Down by 1 to last. DNQ/DNS: 50. (It’s that easy!)

DRIVER REGISTRATION
– King Of Dirt Racing registration fee is $50 for the 2022 season. This applies to Sportsman Modified and Pro Stock divisions. Drivers racing multiple tracks will be required to register them separately and pay the fee per track they wish to have their finishes scored from. Finishes cannot be combined between tracks. Drivers will also need to register separately if they run two divisions at one track (example: 602 crate sportsman and open sportsman). Only one will show on overall standings, which is the track the driver has their best efforts at.
Limited Sportsman drivers registration fee is $25 for 2022 season. Drivers racing multiple tracks will be required to register them separately and pay the fee per track they wish to have their finishes scored from. ALL DRIVERS wishing to compete for the King Of Dirt Racing championship (including Limited Sportsman) will need to be registered and paid by no later than June 1 to show up on KOD scoreboards and earn point funds, product rewards, and/or series awards.
