  2. Class Champion Year-end Awards:
    1. Competitors must be a Dixie Region member before the start of the final points event of the season. Anyone who joins before the start of the final points event of the season will receive points for events run during the season as a non-member. Proof of membership must be submitted to the Solo Committee.
    2. The member must compete in one given class for more than 50% of the region's Solo points events. (Round up for odd number of events.)
    3. Class championship points will be awarded based on official results as follows (FINISH POSITION:POINTS): 1st:12, 2nd:9, 3rd:7, 4th:6, 5th:5, 6th:4, 7th:3, 8th:2, 9th through last: 1
    4. Ties for year-end points will be broken based on the quality of finishes in the members events, i.e. most number of firsts, most number of seconds, etc. Any remaining ties for year-end class championship points will be broken by comparing the cumulative PAX scored finishes at the points events in which the tied competitors competed together, excluding any other type of event in which PAX results cannot be obtained.
    5. The points for each competitorís worst points-scoring event during the season will be dropped. If the competitor missed one or more events, this could be a score of zero. This allows for nonattendance at a single points event during the season without imposing a penalty.
    6. If a competitor does not meet all of these requirements, their points will be forfeited and removed from the running for the Class Championship. This will result in the competitors below them being moved up in position.
    7. It will be the responsibility of the Solo Chairman and/or a designated representative to publish the class points standings toward year-end class points totals twice a year on the region web site. The first posting will be after the fourth points event. The second posting will be after the eighth points event of the season, but before the Awards Banquet. Year-end awards will not be awarded unless the region conducts a minimum of 3 points events.

    2. The PAX times used to compute scores will include those of all drivers competing at the event in a recognized SCCA Solo class or a Dixie Region Supplementary class.
    3. 100 points will be awarded to the individual(s) with the fastest/best PAX time.
    4. Ten points minimum will be awarded to the individual(s) with the slowest/worst PAX time.
    5. Individuals who enter the event receives a DNF time he/she shall receive 10 points unless they are DNS/DSQ from that event in which case they shall receive 0 points.
    6. Individuals between those times will be granted points computed as follows: Points awarded = 100 Ė (150 * (competitor's time - Top PAX time) / Top PAX time)
    7. The points for each competitorís worst points-scoring event during the season will be dropped. If the competitor missed one or more events, this could be a score of zero. This allows for nonattendance at a single points event during the season without imposing a penalty.
    8. In the event of a tie, event-by-event PAX finishes shall be compared. The competitor with the most first place finishes shall be judged the winner, or if both have the same number of first place finishes, then the most second place finishes, etc. In the event that all finishes have been compared and competitors are still tied, the PAX times of the tied competitors, counting only events where all tied individuals competed, shall be added. The competitor with the lowest total time shall receive the award.
