The race schedule usually includes a 5 lap scratch race, then a 3 lap sprint (just like a scratch race but just 3 laps) , then a 20-30 or 40 lap scratch race depending on how many riders.

They also break it up into A's and B's for each race.

There is a reason that officials stand on the lane looking up it. That is the only place to see a winner.
