Scoring: Scoring for individual Game races is based on the type of vehicle the participant uses in the race, the difficulty level of the race, and where the participant finishes in the race. Race scores are calculated as follows:
|Race Finish Points:||1st Place||500|
|Game Difficulty Level:||Hard||100% of Race Finish Points|
|Medium||80% of Race Finish Points|
|Easy||60% of Race Finish Points|
|Vehicle Point Multiplier:||Lawn Tractor||1.0|
A participant’s score for any single race is the product of their race finish points multiplied by the game difficulty level percentage multiplied by the vehicle point multiplier. For example, a large tractor that comes in 2nd place on a medium difficulty level course would score 1440 points (300 x 80% x 6.0 = 1440). Points are only earned for first, second or third place finishes in a race.
Each participant starts with a Lawn Tractor and can upgrade to a vehicle with a higher point multiplier by using Fastbucks. Fastbucks are awarded based on the race finish points earned multiplied by the race difficulty level for that race. For example, a 3rd place finish in a medium difficulty race would earn $160 Fastbucks (200 x 80% = 160). The cost in Fastbucks to upgrade from a Lawn Tractor to a vehicle with a higher point multiplier is as follows:
A participant that has previously upgraded to a vehicle with a higher point multiplier may revert back to the Lawn Tractor and receive a Fastbucks credit equal to 40% of the original Fastbucks upgrade price of that vehicle. The contest operator reserves the right to add additional vehicles to the Game in the future.
In addition to acquiring Fastbucks through racing results, participants may also purchase Fastbucks for the following amounts:
|Fastbucks Amount:||Purchase Price:|
Fastbucks have no monetary or redemption value and may only be used by a Game or Contest participant to upgrade to a vehicle with a higher point multiplier as set forth in these Official Rules. Fastbucks are non-refundable and non-transferable.

EST on the last day of the same calendar month. Only scores from Game races completed during said time period are eligible for calculating a participant’s cumulative score for that month.
