The Motorcycle / Quad / UTV is a Gran Prix Finish – this is the definition of a Gran Prix Finish:
Definition of Best In The Desert’s Gran Prix Scoring~
The race ends when the Overall Leader receives the checkered flag and has completed the required number of laps determined by Best In The Desert. Once the checkered flag is given to the Overall Leader all other entries must receive the checkered flag to be considered a finisher. Example Three (3) Lap Race: Three (3) Lap Race – Best In The Desert determines that the Overall Leader is required to complete three (3) laps. Best In The Desert will consider a competitor to be a finisher but the competitor must receive the checkered flag after the overall leader, with a mandatory of at least one (1) lap finished. If a competitor starts their third (3rd) lap before the Overall Leader receives the checkered flag and they break down on the third (3rd) lap, they are considered a DNF (did not finish.) If a competitor is having problems with their race vehicle, and does not think they can finish the third lap, and they are on their second (2nd) lap, they will then want to stop no closer than a ¼ mile from the finish line (checkered flag) and wait for the Overall Leader to receive the checkered flag, then cross the finish line for a finish. The competitor must receive the checkered flag to be considered a finisher.
