The four-race series is hosted by Rockingham Dragway, Piedmont Dragway, Farmington Dragway and Galot Motorsports Park (formerly Dunn-Benson).

At each event, champions will be crowned on both Saturday and Sunday with series points awarded for both participation and rounds won.  Top Eliminator race winners will earn $5,000 with $1,500 to the runners-up and $500 each to the losing semifinalists.

Although the entry fee is being waived in the newly-designated Modified category, winners nevertheless will earn $1,000 on each day of competition.  In addition to Top Eliminator and Modified, Jr. Dragster champions also will be determined on a daily basis with competition in the first three rounds restricted by age – 11 and under drivers on one side of the bracket; 12 and older on the other.
