Ideas for change to the 2009 JBRL
I think it should be like this.
Rookie buggy (stock)
Rookie truck (Stock)
Sportman buggy (stock)
Sportman truck (stock)
Expert buggy (stock)
Expert truck (stock)
Super stock buggy
Super stock truck
Super stock 4wd
****NO ROOKIES ALLOWED IN ANY OTHER CLASS UNTIL TOP THREE ATTAINED****
If you feel this may be to many classes, well then eliminate SLASH due to it being a fad!!! Really, no ones picking up a sponsor for this or going to NATS.
As you can tell from the results of this year there are currently 8 people in expert stock truck. I think that the top 6 from sportmans truck should move into this class making it 14. Then in turn move the top 8 (perhaps 1 or 2 wont) from rookie to sportman. That will balance out the Stock truck class.
The same can be applied to stock buggy. Move the top 6 from sportsman to expert making that a class of 14 as well.
From here on the top three winners of each class will move to the next level.
I personally wont make to much of an effort to race in 2009 if stock truck is only rookie and open!!!!! That would make stock truck have A-(E) (possibly) mains, which will consume just as much time as my proposed class divisions. More so, where is the motivation for people like myself whom have only raced for two years? Theres not much of a chance in being in an A or possible B main. I understand paying your dues but that seems a bit FAR streched!!!!
