J.R.
Good question and it speaks to what I think is part of the issue with the approach to combined points. No, there is nothing in the entry system that prioritizes a racer's ability to enter because they have more grade points than what it takes to get in. The system opens for entries based on the date and time for the 1st time for any/all racers who have 8 grade points. If you do, it is first come, first served to enter.

That means that earning more than 8 grade points in any single category does not help you enter a National Event because you don't need them to enter the 1st car you want to drive and you can't use anything in surplus of 8 for a 2nd car.

He agreed that the system doesn't really fit the philosophy of why they use grade points for prioritizing entries but that they have system limitations that doesn't allow them to administer the system in better alignment.

My DD also said that if there is enough feedback from racers to change how this systems works, then they would consider changing it - that's what I'm trying to gather/understand from this group.
So, there is no limitation on moving back and forth between categories after the initial entry.

Technically, no, the system does not limit your ability to change classes.

However, you would have to go into the entry website and withdraw yourself from one class, get a credit then enter yourself into another class. There would need to quota room available in the class you were moving into unless you had a provisional entry like being a formal World Champ. You also would have to have a valid competition number for the class you want to run available to select when you log in to enter.

Current system is fine leave it alone. 90% of us currently understand how it works.
