if your series has lets say 8 races, then you should have at least 2 throw outs
This is what we've been doing for the Puget Sound Fast Boys series here in the Seattle area at the Area 52 track. It's a 6-race series with 1 throw out and our last series race is coming up in September. Each class has three 5-min qualifying heats on live loop with the best time/# of laps determining your placement in the A, B mains with 2 bump ups from B to A. Even if you finish dead last in the B-main you still get points assigned.

It's a pretty simple point system and allows the sportsmen racers to keep in contention with the sponsored guys for series-type races. For example if the top 4 all get hit by a bus and I manage to make the A-main in the last race I have the chance at a podium finish for the series...

If you're in the WA area come check out the great track.

I'll be sure to look both ways before crossing the street for the next couple weeks...
