Select races throughout the season will offer women's grades as part of a Women's Series.
For scratch races not designated as Women's Series events, women can race in the standard Combine grades with separate recognition of results. In other words, there will be a race within a race for women's placings (with the composition of placings offered a function of how many women race). We strongly recommend you enter the following grades:
|Women's Grade||Combine Grade||Note|
|Women's A||C grade|
|Women's B||D grade|
