AKRON LOCAL POINT & TOP 10 JACKET SERIES
The rider will receive Akron series points for every race. The points are used to determine which riders are eligible for special series awards. A weekly running total is kept for each rider in each point’s class. At the end of the series, the riders who have qualified for year end awards are noted on the points board. All riders listed on the point board are noted under the age they are at the end of the series. Current points for all series are posted on the point boards. The point boards are located between registration and the Rental Building.
As a rider moves up in age and proficiency, local points are carried forward.
All riders will receive credit and points for every race they race even if they did not race the main.
The Akron BMX Local Point Series runs from April 28th to October 6th, 2019. You must participate in at least 20 races to qualify for this series. We will use the rider’s total points for the series.
Races NOT included in the Local Point Series include: Olympic Day, Race For Life, Warnicke, State Race Qualifier, State race final pre-race and the State Championship Final

FALL CLASSIC SERIES
Fall Classic Series is a series of races that begin on August 1st and end October 2, 2019. Riders must race eight races to qualify for the Akron jersey. During this series, ribbons are awarded in place of trophies or saver coupons. All riders who qualify will receive their Akron BMX jersey at the Annual Awards Banquet.
Sizes for the jerseys are accumulated early in the series since we need approximately 6 weeks to order the jerseys so they are received by the date of the banquet. We will ask for sizes from all riders even though they may not be awarded the jersey because they did not qualify.
