In some situations or for uncontrollable schedule changes/delays we are never guaranteed all four qualifying sessions, qualifying sessions may change without notice

14. In the event of a rain out where eliminations have started, only those still in eliminations will continue at the rain date. The Rained out event will be made up at the next scheduled event, if permitted by track personnel. Those entries will have one qualifier on Saturday and then start with eliminations. ET from the qualifier and eliminations on Saturday will count towards Sundays Qualifying. Once someone is eliminated they can continue qualifying for Sunday with the other entries. If qualifying has started but eliminations have not started, those entries will get their qualifying points as of the last completed qualifying session, plus an extra 10 points for making the attempt, but there will not be a rain date. If an event is rained out or cancelled completely it will not be made up at a later date, all those in attendance will receive 10 points. In the event that Sunday is calling for a large percentage of rain in the forecast, the race director and committee members can vote to race the event on Saturday, if it is run on Saturday and Sunday is raceable, the points race will be Sunday and Saturday will become a cash bash only! If Sunday is a rain out the race from Saturday will count for points.
