Why split the field after qualifying? To give mid-pack drivers a chance at a trophy or longer main? I don't understand??

I like that Idea for one big reason

I can tell how good or how bad I am compared to the Pro guys

and I think that it'll make the Pro drivers earn there spot in traffic

Split it so that its still a sportsman class and a pro class but it gets rid of sandbagging. Its reallyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy hard to sandbag with qual points

Here is my thing with that.. If you have EVERYONE qualifying with EVERYONE, then that means pros are qualifying with sportsman who have less driving experience, so where a Pro might qualify 3rd or 4th if all the PROS qualified together, he now qualifies 14- down because he qualified with less experienced drivers, and either A.) Got hacked, B.) Had to slow down to avoid crashing because they wouldnt let him by.


I don't see the fairness there. A pro goes and flames out one run, breaks another, now he is qualified 90th so he is a sportsman? We don't know who all is chassis sponsored. Iunno there are going to be flaws in everything decision made, I just agree with whatever the people putting on the race are going with. All in All we should be out there having fun, not worrying about how many classes there are, and the rules of said classes.

you will never get rid of sand bagging....the fact is most of the sandbaggers are grown men...and they know what class they should be in.

i agree, on run they race how the ones holding it want to run it. it seems eveyone always has an opinion on how it could be better before the race is even ran. give the guys a chance, some did not like the way the AIC was done...i had the best time in a long time. set some rules stick by them and for the crybabies bring some pacifiers.

This is one of the truest statements on this thread.

Run where you should run....put your pride aside and take a beating on the track if that's the case....I do it ALL THE TIME. Grow and be a man...it's ok to loose.

ok you guys must not be reading what I am posting so I will re word it.

first of all the cream always rises to the top. If your fast your fast. Poor pro guys lets baby them, take the slow cars out so heaven for bid they have to drive around slow cars. you resort after the 1st 2nd 3rd round whatever u want.

If you sign up pro you run pro no matter where you qual.

and qual points suck? well if your not consistent then thats why you hate it or you dont understand it. qual points make it where the guy fastest the first round doesnt get Tq just because the track was good.

Are you saying to run 1 class of whatever and resort after the first round?

If so...then I agree that will put everyone in their place. Maybe resort 2x just in case.

correct let everbody sign up

pro or sportsman

run 2 rounds and resort the field fast guys will be with fast guys.

after all rounds are done any driver qualified higher than top 50 they run pro no matter what class they signed up for. Any pro guy who signed up for pro below the top 50 will also have to bump to pro. the rest of the field runs sportsman.

this format there can be no sandbaggers..

this will be a great race just hope they do some new stuff life bump 6 or 4 instead of the old 2 bump system something new.

IF YOU ARE THERE TO RACE AND NOT SANDBAG FOR PRIZES THIS FORMAT PUTS YOU WHERE YOU BELONG. IF YOU DONT LIKE THIS FORMAT THEN YOU ARE A SANDBAGGER.

Nah, I'm not

I just like to run Sportsman because I'm an oval driver most the time

I just got into Offroad

I'm alright racing Pros but if there is a Class where I can maybe do good in I'm gonna take that over going against Pros
