Series Events

Events that are part of the series will be broken down into 2 Tiers: Tier 1 is for events that had a minimum of 300 starters in the previous year, and have been conducted for at least 3 consecutive years. Tier 2 is for events that are new to the schedule, or have had a minimum of 175 riders in the previous year. If Tier 2 events attain the conditions for a Tier 1 event, they can qualify to move up for the next year. Final decisions on the tier status of events in the series will be made by the Series Organizer. Events on the UCI, USAC ProCX, and USAC CXNC calendars are ineligible for the NECXBAR series.
