Q: How does the “Twin 30s” format work?

But after the first feature is complete, the cars will return to the pits for a quick pit stop before returning to the track for the second 30-lap feature. All lead lap cars will be inverted for the start of the second 30-lap feature. All lapped cars will start behind the first feature winner.
When the second 30-lap feature is complete, the results will be combined and the winner with the best average finish between the two 30-lap features will be crowned Silver Cup Champion!
