Format Released for POWRi California Monza Series

Belleville, IL. (02/15/2021) The POWRi California Monza Series is back with a six-leg journey of quarter-midget racing to clinch the 2021 championship. Starting the year on the 1/20th-mile dirt-track of CQMA on April 30th. Sign-ins for the event are slotted from 5:00 PM to 7:30 PM on Friday and resume bright and early Saturday at 7:30 AM. Sign-in fees will be $40.00 per car with no class or division jumping division.

Friday will be an open practice day from noon until local curfew allows, with scheduled class practice sessions beginning Saturday at 9:00 AM. Before the Saturday morning practice session, there will be a driver and handlers meeting starting at 8:30 AM. Following the meeting, drivers and handlers will start staging for their class practice sessions. Each class practice session will allow durations of five minutes with seven drivers at a time on the track to shake down their cars for the weekend event. Following the class practice sessions will be a qualifying session with the order determined by the driver pill-draw during sign-in. After the qualifying sessions are over, heat races will commence with line ups being fully inverted from qualifying results. Heat races will be 20 laps (15 for Novices) with a three-lap warm-up session beforehand.

Lower and A-main starting line-ups will be determined using the finishing points gained from qualifying and heat races results. The top five in points for the racing event will automatically start in the A-main with each set of five drivers starting at the next lower main, with the lowest main having a minimum of seven starting cars. For example, if there are 17 cars in a class, 1-5 in points will be starting in the A-main, 6-10 will start in the B-main, 11-17 will start in the C-main with the top five finishing positions transferring into the next main. In the case of there being only 11 cars in a class, all cars will make the A-main. C-Mains and below will start with a 3-lap warm-up and run 30 laps (20 for Juniors). B-Mains will include a 3-lap warm-up with 35 laps being the distance (25 for Juniors). A-Mains will also include a 3-lap warm-up session with Novices running 25 laps, Juniors running 30 laps, and a 40-lap feature for all other classes.

All lower mains will be completed on Saturday or until curfew. If B-Mains are not started by 10:00 PM for Juniors (11:00 PM for all other classes), the semi-features will be run on Sunday.
