Ifmar style qualifying does clean up some of the racing but for the most part we don't have enough people to worry about getting into the "A", pretty much everyone makes the show. It's great for bigger races where a few hundrents can make the difference if making the show or ending up way down in a lower main, we just don't have that kind of talent for a local club race...

 Drop the novice races to 3 minutes.

 

 Stock oval class lose the rear wing and go to spec Protoform tcc2 oval body and just spoiler only,this would tighten up the class and make the racing a little racier , body's are only 2o bucks and change.

 Lower entry fee's.= 15 per class, 3rd one five bucks, novice 5 bucks

I'm sure more who read these local threads can add some positive idea's

Gordon - I love starting that way but there is 2 problems that I see with that. 1) It adds a lot of time to an already long day at the track. We start racing at 11am, if we are lucky we get a round of qualifing in in 2 hours. So that starts the mains at the earliest 3pm. If the mains go smoothly then we are done by 5pm. Track tear down takes another hour and if we are lucky we are out of there by 6pm. As the 1 main person who tows the trailer, that puts me home at the earliest 7pm. And when I am getting up at 5am to do this, it makes for long day. Adding a couple of seconds onto every heat when you have 13 - 19 heats like we do for 2 rounds really starts to add up. This has been brought up before and we really didn't go for it due to the time it adds to the day. 2) You need people on the computer that know how to do what you are asking. We have a lot of different volunteers that step up during the day to announce and some only know how to press start and print and read off a couple of names, that is it. Not saying they are bad but they just won't be able to do the starts this way, and won't volunteer. That means only a few select people will have to be up there all day every race day to do these starts.

Once again I like these starts but when you really step back and look at it for our club and all the classes we offer, the people we have and the time we have to do it all in, just doesn't really work.

In qualifing, drivers start behind the scoring loop, and when the tone sounds a drivers name is call and he or she begins their qualifing time be it five or six minutes. When the tone sounds to end the qualifing session, the driver will contiue until their name is called and the best time over all in the two segments is top qualifier. The grid is then set and drivers line up acording to their qualifing time,

Do you mean individual qualifying or the fastest lap during the heats?

Mr. O,

Maybe for next year, and this is just an thought, maybe try IFMAR type of qualifing heats (LOL). Instead of bashing one an other we'd race the clock for our best time.

All of the classes were great, we will have to see what is popular as the season goes on if we want to make changes.

Gordon.
