Dirt Cup Weekend Next For Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series


Bryan Hulbert - ALGER, Wash. (June 16, 2019) Three nights of racing lay ahead for the Lucas Oil American Sprint Car Series presented by the MAVTV Motorsports Network with a $15,000 top prize on the line in the 48th annual Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup presented by the Skagit Casino/Resort at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash.
Taking time off the National Tour, Washington native Seth Bergman enters the weekend as the defending Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup Champion and has been getting plenty of practice around Skagit Speedway as of late in preparation for the three-day affair.
Looking to pick up a third Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup title, Sam Hafertepe, Jr. leads the field into this weekend's three-night affair. Off an up and down weekend that saw the Townline Variety No. 15h getting upside down at Black Hills Speedway, the Sunnyvale, Texas racers still holds some breathing room in the point standings with a 33-point buffer over Blake Hahn.
Picking up a pair of wins this past Friday and Saturday in South Dakota, Scott Bogucki qualified his Sawblade.com No. 28 on the pole of the 2019 Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup and is riding a wave of momentum into this weekends race. Moving to third in Lucas Oil ASCS Driver Standings, Bogucki is chased by current Brodix National Rookie of the Year front runner, John Carney II, who trails the No. 28 by two, and Hafertepe by 54. Making up a lot of ground over the weekend as well, Matt Covington is back within striking distance with his deficit down to 99 points.
Back to a track where laps run is nearly uncountable, Roger Crockett is sixth in tour standings with Harli White in seventh. Showing more and more speed with every race, Jordon Mallett is eighth with Robbie Price and Alex Hill making up the top ten. Closing in on cracking into the top ten, Tucker Doughty currently sits eleventh.

For the 48th annual event, the format for the Sprint Cars will again see drivers competing all three nights with Thursday and Friday setting the stage for Saturday's finale. Using event points through Heats, Qualifiers, B-Features, and A-Features, this year's format did get adjusted. For the points awarded for Heats and Qualifiers last year were too high and took drivers out of the running that otherwise would have been locked in. Testing the new points system at the Hockett/McMillin in 2018, the new structure worked as it should with drivers who make the A-Feature rewarded for their efforts.
The format for the 2019 Jim Raper Memorial Dirt Cup presented by the Skagit Casino Resort will be as follows:
Drivers will compete on both qualifying nights as combined points from Heat Races, Qualifiers, B-Mains, and A-Mains will set the lineup for Saturday night. Any tie in points will be broken by Friday's passing point totals.
ASCS Format will be utilized with draw in for Heat Race starting position and passing points to determine drivers who advance to Qualifiers and B-Mains.
54 cars or less: Top 30 in Passing Points from Heat Races will move into 3 Qualifiers. Remainder will fall to the tail of the night's "B" Features. Top 18 will be inverted with the highest point earner from Heat Races starting sixth in the first Qualifier. Qualifiers will be 8 laps each. Passing Points will be utilized with the driver's total points combined with their Heat Race total. The top 16 in combined Passing Points will advance to the A-Feature. Drivers will not redraw for their starting position. Lineup is straight up by the combined Passing Point total. The remainder will fall into B-Features. Number of B-Features is dependent upon the number of cars. 40-50 cars means remaining drivers will drop into two "B" Features. 51-60 will drop into three "B" Features. Lineup will be done by passing point totals with 17th going to the pole of the first "B" Feature, 18th to the pole of the second "B" Feature, etc.
55 cars or more: Top 40 in Passing Points from Heat Races will move into 4 Qualifiers. Remainder will fall to the tail of the night's "B" Features. Top 24 will be inverted with the highest point earner from Heat Races starting sixth in the first Qualifier. Qualifiers will be 8 laps each. Passing Points will be utilized with the driver's total points combined with their Heat Race total. The top 16 in combined Passing Points will advance to the A-Feature. Drivers will not redraw for their starting position. Lineup is straight up by the combined Passing Point total. The remainder will fall into B-Features. Number of B-Features is dependent upon the number of cars. 40-50 cars means remaining drivers will drop into two "B" Features. 51-60 will drop into three "B" Features. Lineup will be done by passing point totals with 17th going to the pole of the first "B" Feature, 18th to the pole of the second "B" Feature, etc.
If one B is needed, the top 6 drivers will advance to the A-Feature. If two B's, then the top three, if three B's, then the top two.
Following Friday night, driver's combined points will be tallied with the top 16 drivers locked into Saturday's A-Feature. Ranking 17-48 will be split among two B-Features with 17th to the pole of the first B-Main, 18th to the pole of the second B-Main, 19th to the outside front row of the first B-Main, 20th to the outside front row in the second B-Main; continuing down until each B-Main has 16 cars. The remainder will fall into a Last Chance Qualifier, if needed, taking the top 4 drivers with the winner and third place taking the final two spots in the first B-Feature. Second and fourth will take the final two spots in the second B-Feature. In case of a tie, the advantage will be to the driver with the highest finish on Friday night.
Driver Provisionals based on points with the Lucas Oil ASCS will be suspended for this event.
