With the start of its inaugural season just over a month away, SRX announced its procedures for its race format and points system via Twitter May 6.
Similar to many short track race formats, there will be two heats prior to the feature race. The lineup for the first heat race will be determined via random draw, selected by each driver.
Following the first heat race, the field will be completely inverted for the second heat race. The finishing results from the second heat race will set the lineup for the feature race.

Heat races will consist of 15 minutes. When the clock expires, the leader will receive the white flag.
Five of the six feature races will consist of 100 laps, and the feature at the penultimate race at Slinger Speedway will consist of 150 laps.
If needed, there will be unlimited green-white-checkered finishes to conclude a feature race.
As for its points format, points will be awarded to full-time competitors for their finishes in both heat races and the feature event.
First place in both heats will receive 12 points, second place will receive 11 points and so on.
The winner of the feature race will receive 25 points, second place will receive 22, third place will receive 20 points and every respective lower finishing driver will receive a lesser amount of points, each position receiving two less.
The inaugural SRX season will consist of six races beginning at Stafford Motor Speedway on June 12 and concluding at Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway on July 17.
