New Structure for KPI Calculation

Sure I've changed how drivers are ranked ... several times now ... and for good reason!

Early feedback from the Hoseheads forum was beneficial. However, it turns out (mathematically) that what a driver does in a state-centric touring series or at a local track has minimal impact on the overall standings. Think of it this way ... in college basketball, what happens in the Horizon League has minimal impact on the RPI of a team in the Big East.

Given that fact, I've pared back the races that count for KPI calculation:
  • World of Outlaws Races.
  • All Stars (which includes Ohio Speedweek).
  • Knoxville Nationals and Capitani Classic.
  • Pennsylvania Speedweek.
  • Mansfield Sprint Car World Championship.
  • Other Major Events per Audience Recommendation.
That's what we're doing.

Going forward, we'll categorize drivers into two buckets.
  • A-Main = Top 24 Ranked Drivers.
  • B-Main = Drivers 25-48.
Using this format, there are 19 races currently eligible. Here is the current "A-Main":
