Myron we praying for you and your fam this week. Loosing close family isnt something we handle well. Here to help if needed .
As far as the southern nats go, guys lets get some more interest in the pro vta & IROC classes . its heads up, random start (and finishing order) racing all 6 heats . with clean starts (required) it will be a awesome class to run in with the highest level of talent to ever run in these classes . so the more racers that run the more fun the class will be .
run both regular & pro classes (different set tires i think tho, but dont quote me ).

Honnestly the one min qual is to help sort folks into a heat with "like speed cars,capabilities" now given a 5x longer race many things change but it's the most fair way to handle the 1st heat random cluster in the race . who wants to be in the heat with a new RACER that's doing his best to stay off the pipes AND avoid they guys doing stupid fast laps ? I would and have been super nervous in each of those guys shoes . lol

I think you're putting too much focus on the TQ part. The 1 min. qualifier is to try and sort the qualifiers by speeds. The actual TQ is the person who is the top dog going into the main.
