Documents for 2.2.8 Work Points:

2.2.8.1 WORK POINTS: For every 2 Club race event positions worked, a member will receive one (1) free race entry. Unused race works roll over to next season, TO BE USED AS FREE RACE ENTRY ONLY. In addition, each member who works a race event will receive first place plus 30 points for each event worked (up to a maximum of one race per series or 230 points). Driver is eligible for only one work day per series; if a volunteer signs in and the driver is racing, work credit counts even if race points are taken on that day (only one volunteer sign up is allowed per driver per series). Multiple works by the same person in the same class will be counted as just entries. Works will count as race entries for the driver in the series worked, and they will also count for race entries in year-end awards. Worker substitutes are allowed. Each worker is responsible for signing the work sheet at each event AT REGISTRATION. It must be determined AT REGISTRATION whether the driver is taking work points or race points. No work points will be awarded to members whose name does not appear on the work sheet. Each racer is also responsible for announcing at registration that he is taking his free race. Racer may claim only one set of work points per class at any event. Worker may designate a race in the future to apply work points to. The future designated race must be within the same series e.g. spring, summer or fall and must be designated at the time of registering for work. However, work points can be “banked” for use at a future race in the same series (or first race of next series of the current race season) with the understanding those points will be declared before the start of the given race. Racer may still race in the future race but work points will count, not race points. Changes to designate a different race further in the future are allowed before registering for the previously designated race. Changes to work points for the race that day to a future race must be declared before qualifying and must be approved by the President or Vice president of NTK, the form for such changes are available in the registration office. No monies will be taken from NTK general fund for awards for unpaid entries. If driver is disqualified for any reason in any heat, he cannot use work points for this race event. If you assign work points to the last race of the series or are signed up to work the last race prior to race day and that race cancels, your work points will automatically be applied to the lowest, non DQ race in the series.
