Points allocation when a class doesn't run and Racers are moved to another class

For all classes except Top Alcohol and Top Doorslammer, if there are not enough vehicles to run a class, that class will be merged into the next class as per below Class Designation list. All entry points, qualifying points and earned eliminations points from that days racing will be transferrable to the racers actual class of entry. For example, John Doe enters to race in Top Street but there are not enough cars to run Top Street. John Doe is moved to Sport Compact and comes second in Sport Compact. All John Does' points earned in Sport Compact will be transferred to Top Street at the end of the event.

The Racer will be eligible for any class prizes that he/she earns in the class he/she runs in.

Supercharged Outlaws drops into Modified class.
Competition vehicles with a supercharger, nitrous or turbochargers will be merged with Supercharged Outlaws, all other N/A Competition vehicles will merge into Modified class.
Competition Bike drops into Modified Bike class.
Top Street and Sport Compact combine.
Top Street and Sport Compact drop into Super Sedan if there are insufficient numbers in both classes to run even when combined.
