What is the format for SRX races, how it works?
Each SRX event will include two heat races and a main event. Each heat race is 12 minutes with the final lap starting when the timer hits zero. The lineup for the first heat race is set by random draw with the second set by inverting the finishing order of the first.
The main event is set for 100 laps on paved tracks and 50 laps for dirt tracks.
Unlimited attempts at a green-white-checker finish are permitted.
How can I get SRX tickets?
Tickets for each event can be found at the respective track’s website, all six of which can be found at www.srxracing.com/schedule. Thursday’s race at Stafford as well as the race at Berlin on Aug. 3 are both sold out.
