One August day in 2008 at an annual National 410 Sprint Car stakeholders meeting at Knoxville Speedway, the stakeholders were challenged with developing a regional and national ranking system for the weekly 410 Sprint Cars. The goal, to bring commonality to the 410 Sprint Car industry and reward participation at weekly tracks without penalizing series participation. After a fair amount of discussion and a good deal of fine tuning, the group developed a regional and national ranking system that was put into place during the 2009 season. Since then, the National 410 Sprint Car Rankings have been calculated yearly, and the system remains unchanged.

With no money on the line, the title is strictly for bragging rights. The regional points season runs from the first day of the year through the World of Outlaws World Finals at The Dirt Track at Charlotte Motor Speedway (October 28, 2017, this year).

Regional Rankings are broken up into seven regions: Eastern (Includes tracks from Maine to Florida), Great Lakes (Michigan, Indiana, Western Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee), Great Plains (North and South Dakota, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa), Mid America (Illinois, Missouri, Arkansas, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi), Ohio-Pennsylvania (Eastern Ohio, Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia), The Northwest ( Washington, Alaska, Oregon, Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Hawaii), and the Western region (Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, California).

A driver earns points on all races within each region — whether it’s a World of Outlaws race, another national touring series event, or weekly racing at a local dirt track. Drivers receive 60 points for a win, 56 points for second, and so on, decreasing by two points through the field. Champions in the geographical regions are ranked according to these points standings.

The National Rankings are based on drivers’ best 50 finishes. Drivers must have a minimum of 20 starts to qualify. And drivers who have over 50 starts can toss out a maximum of 15 starts. The driver with the lowest average finish at the end of the season is your National King of 410 Sprint Car Racing.

Of the eight years that the program has been around, eight-time and reigning World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Champion Donny Schatz has taken home the Top-Ranked National King of 410 Sprint Car Racing title four times.
