WHAT IS A FEATURE

As defined for our statistical database, a feature is any A-main event held on the .375 mile oval track, most notably for a Speedbowl point division, any touring series or a race held under open competition rules.  These events are typically longer than 10 laps, but there have been incidents where the Speedbowl has declared a feature result official with less than 10 laps completed.  There is no minimum requirement for lap count or car count for any event to be designated as a feature statistically in our database.  All feature wins are included in our Career Wins List and all applicable Record Book statistic involving feature wins.

WHAT IS NOT A FEATURE
