STATISTICALLY SPEAKING
Due to Richards' team being ineligible to compete in DIRTcar-sanctioned events (all three series involved being DIRTcar-affiliated), the sanctioning of the event was officially stripped, however officials stated that teams would still receive series points, therefore The Third Turn still lists the event as part of those series' seasons.


The scheduled Thaw Brawl main event on 25 March was rained out; the preliminary event on this date appears, retroactively, to be considered this year's Thaw Brawl for statistical purposes.
