The driver who STARTs the race gets the points and the finishing position credit.

In addition to the points above, any driver who leads a lap during a race receives five bonus points. The driver who leads the most laps receives an additional five bonus points.

Owner points are calculated the same, with the exception that owners whose entries do not qualify for the race are awarded owner points according to qualifying results. These are awarded by deducting three points per position until it reaches a minimum of one point (44th = 31, 45th = 28, 46th = 25, etc., after 54th, teams get 1 point). Drivers that do not qualify receive no driver points.
