The top six in overall points each qualifying night are locked into Saturday’s “A” Main which will start three-wide and ten rows deep. After Friday, the next 12 are locked into Saturday’s “B” Main, next 12 to the “C” Main and remaining to one of the Last Chance Races or Next-To-Last Chance Race, depending on total entries.
