Amendment to Alternate Power Ranking Rule
There has been some confusion with regard to the calculation of the Alternate Power Ranking as it relates to the number of riders in a class. The power ranking is based on the number of riders in a class with an actual race finish, not the number of riders entered. Riders entered with no race finish or result are not calculated. Hence, it is necessary to revise the language of the rule to be consistent with the actual method used to calculate the power ranking. Accordingly, rule D.7 of the 2018 AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship Supplemental Rules is amended as follows:
7. Alternates: Alternate selection at the National is based on a Power Ranking calculated as follows: Finish position divided by number of riders with a numeric finish or DNF result in the class; Multiply the result by 100 and then subtract from 100. For purposes of the power ranking calculation a DNS is not a class result. The higher Power Ranking value will determine the Alternate selection. In the event of a tie in the Power Ranking value, the rider with the higher overall Regional place finish will be selected; In the event of a further tie, the rider with the higher overall Area Qualifier place finish within that region will be selected. A minimum of 50% of the guaranteed qualifying positions from each Regional will advance to the National, regardless of the riders’ power ranking.
