What is an ADR?
Average Drivers Rating (ADR) is a calculation to give the user a drivers overall rating based on performance. The ADR scale ranges from 100 – 40.
What is the draft deadline for each game?
Each event has a countdown clock associated that will give you the exact time that you need to have your team selected by. Normally that time will be 30-minutes after the posted start time of Practice/Hot Laps.
When are the drivers rosters posted for each game?
Dirt Draft will try to have a driver roster posted 2-days prior to the event. In some circumstances the roster could be posted sooner or later.
What is the Green, Yellow and Red lights by each drivers name?
Great question! Dirt Draft needs a way to let the user know whether or not a drive is going to be at the event or not. So we created a traffic light system. • Green Light Status: Driver is 99.9% going to be at the event. • Yellow Light Status: Dirt Drafts “Insiders” believe this driver will be at the event but not certain. • Red Light Status: Driver was originally a Green or Yellow light but the Dirt Draft “Insiders” have found that the driver will not be at the event now.
What if a driver isn’t listed in the initial driver roster but will be at the event?
If a driver isn’t listed initially then they are not eligible to be drafted even if they do decided to attend the event after the draftable roster is posted. No driver will be added to the draftable roster after drafting has become LIVE. However, drivers that are on the draftable roster can have their status changed to Green, Yellow or Red if information becomes available about their status. While Dirt Draft will do it’s absolute best to notify users through social or email of status changes, it is the responsibility of the user to check the status of they drafted drivers prior to the event to ensure all are competing in the event.
Can I change my team after I draft and enter the game?
Yes, at any point prior to the game lock time you can edit your team. To do that click on Upcoming Events, Choose the event you want to edit and then you’ll see a green Edit Team button.
Are the games scored LIVE with Timing and Scoring?
Yes, all events are scored LIVE. However, there are times with the 3rd party timing and scoring feed maybe inactive that would disrupt service. In those cases Dirt Draft will manually score the event post race.
How is the game scored?
Each drivers is awarded a score based on only their a-main finish. 1st – 100, 2nd – 98, 3rd – 96 , etc .. If a driver did not make the a-main they are awarded a 31st place finish and a score of 40. If a driver was on the draftable roster but did not compete in the event they are awarded a 31st place finish and a score of 40. If a driver is not on the draftable roster but competes in the event there are awarded a score correlating to their finish position if they made the a-main or 31st if they did not made the a-main.
Are games official at the checkered flag?
No, after the event Dirt Draft will validate the event results before marking the event results official and marking as Validated. At that point all scores and points become final. The validation period will normally happen within 12-hours of the completion of an game.
What if there is a disqualification after the validation?
After an event is validated, the event results will not be changed.
