The second place car in the main was almost as fast.
I was running fast laps of 10.4's and he was about .5 seconds faster around the track than I was.
These were real.
Wrong. None of that is real. The only real thing is the finishing order.
Look at fast lap for some of the races. Its rediculous. Haynes did not do an 8.8 in mod touring. He did win though which was awesome. It shows Dave Erlich doing a fast lap of 8.8 in WGT that did not happen. There are people that did 9.0 in the lower mains of 17.5 12th scale. Again did not happen I think the loop was too wide for the oval and people were double counting at times. Either way it corrected the times and it all came out equal by giving people long laps randomly to make up for it. Don't ask me how but it did.
Keven did not do a 9.5 in Super stock. Till the laptimes got screwed up fast lap was 9.8.
It started early on with Brad Johnson having 9.7 laptimes in the first practice of super stock when mod times weren't even that fast yet and got progressively worse during the week. I'm not really sure what was going on but the main fast laps were not correct for many racers.
Andrew Hartman is a great young racer but 9.9 was not possible in Spec TC.
I had a great time at this race and Supported the champs but no one will claim the scoring system was not flawed big time. Like I said it all worked out in the end but those times are not accurate.
