Historically the silver roof was earned by the driver who scored the most points at meetings over the entire season. It was amended slightly in 2002 to become the National Series whereby only the points scored at certain rounds counted in the chase for the silver roof. Since 2009 by the top twelve point scorers go on to contest a ‘Shootout’ in the latter part of the season. The twelve drivers scores are zeroed with points awarded for final wins and meeting attendance. The highest point scorer after round ten earns the title of ‘National Points Champion’ and gets to wear the coveted silver roof.
