We pair drivers together using staging numbers. We then run single eliminations until we have eight or six drivers who have all raced an equal number of rounds or five drivers. This changes each race depending on the number of entrants. These remaining drivers will now race off to determine who is placed in the top 5 bracket.
* If there are eight drivers, we run a “fours” bracket. This means the eight drivers are paired to determine 4 winners and 4 losers. The four winners race off for 1st through 4th place. The four losers race off for 5th place.
* If there are six drivers, we run a “sixes” bracket. This means the six drivers are paired to determine 3 winners and 3 losers. The three winners race off for 1st through 3rd place. The 3 losers race off for 4th and 5th place.
* If there are five drivers, we run a “fives” bracket. This means we pair 4 of the first drivers, to determine 2 winners and 2 losers. The losers now race off for 4th and 5th. The remaining driver will race one of the winning 2 to determine their spot in the top 3. Then they all race off for 1st through 3rd place.
* Note there is also a bracket used for seven drivers, but it is only used when there are only seven drivers entered into the class to begin with.
