Pole Position Raceway is proud to announce the continuation of Pole Position Raceway LIVE: 5-week racing series at our Syracuse (Destiny USA), Rochester (Marketplace Mall) and Buffalo (Walden Galleria) locations with live-streaming Radio show and Podcast every week!
DATES AND TIMES
This series will take place at all 3 facilities from 6PM – 9PM on Tuesdays, March 15th, 22nd, 29th and April 4th. The Championship Night for the Top 9 Racers (top 3 from each facility) will take place in Syracuse from 7PM – 8PM on April 11th to crown our LIVE Champion!
RACING FORMAT AND POINTS STRUCTURE
To participate in the series, you must qualify as a Pro Racer based on a minimum qualifying lap time in a previous Arrive & Drive race. Every hour during Pole Position Raceway LIVE, there will be 3 qualifying races with the Top 9 Racers (3 from each Qualifier) entering an A-Main Event to capture points towards the championship. If you miss out on qualifying for the A-Main for the hour, LIVE now features a SPORTSMAN Main Event every hour to earn points even if you didn’t have your best qualifier.
ONE-TIME $40 Entry Fee to be included in Championship Points Tracking and be eligible for Championship Night. In addition to LIVE Champion prize, we award prizes for Top Lap Times, the A-Main Events, SPORTSMAN Main Events, spectators PLUS Radio and Podcast listeners!
As long as you are qualified as a Pro Racer, you may race as few as 3 times and are not required to compete for the Championship. However, to be eligible for our Championship Night on April 12th, you must race in a Main Event at least 3 weeks of the first 4 weeks. Your Top 3 Main Event scores will be added up and the Top 10 total racers across all three facilities will determine the roster for our April 12th Championship Night!
LOYALTY PROGRAM (POINT FUND)
Pole Position Raceway LIVE will begin our first Loyalty Point Fund to reward racers with credits towards future Arrive & Drive races, Racing Events and LIVE Series. This is based on your TOTAL points throughout the series. i.e., if you race in all 3 qualifiers an hour, your points standing for ALL these races go towards your points for future Arrive & Drive races, Racing Events and LIVE Series. The more you race, the more you earn!
