For 2017 the MiDiv class groupings are aligned with the Majors groupings, and then the non-Runoffs classes are added in. While these are recommended as minimum groupings for MiDiv Races, individual races may group classes as best fits their program.
Ownership of a preferred number is not a guarantee of being able to use that number at any given race. It is recommended drivers have alternate numbers in mind with a plan of how to change it so it is most legible to timing, corners, etc. The easiest alternative may simply be to add a “1” to the front of the number. 1-plus numbers will not be sold in MiDiv but are allowed in the GCR.
At the end of the season, awards are sent to the drivers’ Regional Executives for presentation at Regional award banquets. A driver must finish top-3 in class, race at two tracks sanctioned by two different regions, and make at least three starts in MiDiv races in the same class to be eligible for awards.
Drivers or car owners seeking a new number may call or e-mail for a courtesy one-week hold on any available number. No numbers are sold between Labor Day and Thanksgiving and no advance reservations will be taken during that time for 2017 numbers.
Shortly after Thanksgiving, all drivers who held MiDiv numbers in 2017, will be sent a letter with the MiDiv Preferred Number Application/Renewal form. Drivers who raced their number at least three times in 2017 will have that number held for renewal until Jan. 31, 2018. ALL drivers owning a number in 2017 will have at least the courtesy one-week hold (through approximately the first week of December) on that number for 2018.
