Here's how the Shootout works – Nostalgia Eliminator drivers will be awarded points based on their final qualifying position at each event this season. The number 1 qualifier will receive 16 points, the number 16 qualifier receives 1 point. After the next to last race of the season, the field will be set and will include the top 8 points earners in each Nostalgia Eliminator class. Eight cars from each of the three classes will be paired on a sportsman ladder at the SHRA Championship Finals. The all-important first round of eliminations for all three shootouts presented by Dooley & Sons will be held during the first qualifying session.
