This is for futureal or anyone else who is there and can get a look at the quals and study it??
I am curious how the new point system is working. Yes, it's a new one. From what I can gather, it's almost a rocket round. Out of 4 quals, you get your best points, 0, 2, 3, 4 and that is your position. If a tie, they go to your times-14/5:01.01, 14/5:01.02, etc...that's what I was told.
You could get 4 TQ's with 0 pts...
At the end of the day, if there are 4 racers with 4 pts, do they all then take the 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, position automatically? Even if there is one or two racers with 5 pts that have faster times?
It seems it took us so long to figure out the 2 quals=best times. Why did they change it? It is basically a rocket round, kinda. I thought the idea was to make sure there was some kind of consistency to their abilities.
Also, a lot of the racers didn't know about this change. Those that had participated in the other nats...off road, or whatever previously, knew about it. There wasn't a big announcement, so some folks were thinking in terms of the old format.
I'm not sure there is one easy format, to make it good for all, but I would just like to understand it better.
Anyone there have time to check on it?
And it's a real shame there isn't more info anywhere!
I just found their website-- www.thercspeedway.com
