    Cool #1 PLATE REFORMAT!!

    Starting with the 2019 season a #1 plate will be awarded in four divisions rather than one overall #1.

    The four divisions will be: Heavyweight, Middleweight, Lightweight, and Ultra Lightweight.

    The eligible Expert classes for each division will be as follows:

    Heavyweight:
    Formula 1
    A Superbike
    A Superstock
    Heavyweight Twins

    Middleweight:
    C Superbike
    C Superstock
    B Superbike
    B Superstock

    Lightweight:
    Formula 2
    Lightweight Twins
    D Superbike
    D Superstock

    Ultra Lightweight:
    Ultra Lightweight GP
    500 Superbike
    500 Superstock
    Formula 3
    E Superbike
    E Superstock

    Points will be accumulated on a maximum of a riderís best three finishing positions in each division during a race event, and may not always be the same three classes.

    Note:
    1) 750cc machines will only receive points for a #1 plate in HW classes
    2) riding up is allowed (example: rider on a 600 can ride up in HW classes and receive points for the HW #1 plate, points earned in HW classes will not apply to the MW #1 plate chase)

    The method for awarding the 2 thru 10 plates will remain unchanged. (The four #1 plate holders will be excluded.)

    So if a rider earns a #1 plate and decides to run the #1 in 2020 but wants to run a different division. Can the racer run the #1 in a division the championship wasn't won? Will there be 4 different #1 plates for each division? Like a different color #1 for each division. This could help me decide the division I want to run. I don't really want to sport a green #1. just kidding. #colorsdontmatter #notfastenoughtowinanymore

    NO COLOR CHANGE .. and yeah you might see 2 number 1plates on track, wont be a problem as long as they aren't attatched to the same transponder...you just may have to tell your fans "no, I was the other number1 out there"

    Man I bet that awards banquet will be eventful.... I remember when I got my number one on my bike in 2009. Was one of the coolest things I felt I earned. If I were to win a number 1 plate(s) now.... I’d run 68. Congrats to Jay on winning the last number 1 of the real men (and women)!

    You and Jay were the class of the field this year. I'm sorry we didn't have a chance to see you two running head to head. At the last round Jay ran :34s on a 600. Would have been fun to watch you two flirt around the :33s for 8 laps. If it wasn't for ULWT being included in the overall, we may have actually have had the two fastest guys in the club have to race each other for the overall. Wish you both the best for next year.

    In years past more often than not there has been no real head to head competition in the chase for the #1 plate. A perfect example being you and Jay this year. There were only a few times that you two were on the track at the same time. Only once all season did you both earn points in the same race in the chase for the #1 plate. No offence to the past winners of the #1 plates but without head to head competition it was more of an honorary award than a Championship. With the new format we are guaranteed real head to head competition in the four divisions and head to head competition is what championships are all about.

    Enjoy your retirement.
