2014 NQS Changes

NQS Pulling Series 2014 In 2013 the NQS allotted more money per pull to go towards the points fund, but in turn it took away from the pull purse for the event. Also the responsibility of the designated sled, tech and flag crew along with NQS insurance was put onto the promoter. In 2014 we are making some changes.

  • NQS Points Series Pulls will be limited to 4 events within a 12 month period.
  • The NQS Series is going to make its transition back to a winter series, so with this year the series will start in February of 2014 and end in March of 2015. From that point forward the series will be from October to March with 4 events.
  • Points Fund will be essentially eliminated with a nominal payback with plaque at end of the year. No award banquet. If winner wants a points champion jacket and large check it will be additional money.
  • Voluntary enrollment into the points chase.
  • Cost to be in the points $10.00 per tractor per class for the year, otherwise you don’t have to join the points to pull (just like it was when we started years ago).
  • Sled and flag crew will be up to the promoter get whomever they wish at the promoters expense. No designated sled or flag crew.
  • Elimination of the vendor drawing.
  • Promoter will have to pay the NQS for their hired tech, safety tech and points statistician. Fee is $525 per event.
  • Promoter will have to pay the NQS insurance fee of $505 per event.
  • Classes with 20 to 29 tractors will be run in 2 heats with top 4 in heat to finals.
  • Classes with 30 to 39 tractors will be 2 heats with top 6 in each to finals.
  • Classes with 40+ will be 4 heats top 6 in each to finals.
  • Entry Fee will remain at $60.00 per tractor per class.
  • Sponsorship will be for individual classes. More than one sponsor can sponsor the same class. Minimum sponsorship is $100.00 per class per event. Sponsors can sponsor as many classes as they like. Sponsorship money will be added to 1st and 2nd places.
  • Sponsors can do one class at one pull or for the entire series. Sponsor for the entire series will only have to pay just the promoter’s table fee if they set up a vendor’s table to sell parts.
  • Vendors that don’t sponsor a pull, but set up a vendor’s table to sell will be charged $150.00 above and beyond the promoter’s table fee. That fee will go toward the purse payout.
  • Payback will be increased. Minimum NQS purse is now $11,000.00 per event (“Class B” Event)
  • “Class A” Events will have a $16,500 purse.
  • “Class AA” Events will have a $22,000 purse.
  • Promoters will have the option to do a “Hybrid” purse of the 3 classes of events. For example promoter could have a class B event and then decide to add money to specific classes
  • Generally payback will be $1000.00 for 1st paying 10 places back with around 80 tractors.
  • $750 for 1st paying 10 places back with around 60 tractors.
  • $500 for 1st paying 10 places back with around 40 tractors.
  • $400 for 1st paying 10 places back with around 30 tractors.
  • $300 for 1st paying 5 places back with around 20 tractors.
