This was already a rule/in the rules but lacked definition. Corrected.

Drop Week - Over 8 weeks, each driver is allowed to drop their lowest scoring race. This also includes any events you may have missed. Drop weeks are automatically applied after the final race of the regular season. No drop weeks during the chase this season.
