Many points are off Nd there has been zero effort to correct it. The most recent race 4 guys even got left off of the points sheet. I think someone just hit the bong one too many times. But idk. It's sad they can't seem to get their $h!t together. But they don't even want to try.

doogie finished in the a main most the time,

it just so happened the one or few times he landed in the b main it was the finals, and it was a pretty stacked b main, (all the guys that have been TQ and winning the top 4 spots) were all scattered in the b main..

the top 3 guys were really close in points then 4-12 we were all seperated by a total of 10 points,
me and norby came down to the finals for who was going to take 4th because we knew the top 3 were on lock if they finished the main respectively.

turns out 4th place gained 20-something points in a double points race to take 3rd. when he finished second in the A main. and doogie finished 3rd in the b main.

I'd chalk it up as a loss and hope all goes well the next race series. If he screws it up again take your proof from the first and next series and let the sponsors know. This is of course assuming you are correct. I dont know how they usually do the points so i cant confirm on my own. Most of the people hanging out there are very friendly and willing to help me when I am there so I cant speak to ever having and issue at the track or with the owner.

I was only in the B main the last race . I had 473 pts going into the finals that was a double pts race I took 3rd in the B for what I thought would b 89pts 10 car A with 2 bump ups from the B ! 100 pts for win 98 for 2nd 97 for 3rd and so on ,, since the first 2 bump means 3rd in the b main = 11th place pts ,10th gets 90pts 11th =89pts... 473 +178=651 the guy who got 3rd had 452 going into the final ,he drove a great race for a 2nd in the A main so 98x2=196+452 = 648 ... so in rd 1 and 6 3rd in the B main got 90pts rd 2,3,4,5 3rd in the B got 89pts rd 7 3rd in the B main got 87pts !! 7 race series with one throw out hope this helps

THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HOW HE FINISHED.
rd 1 and rd 6 3rd in the b main got 90 pts rd 2,3,4,5 3rd in the B got 89 pt and rd 7 3rd in the B got 87 pts and you emailed the track owner with private messages for two weeks, and he blew you off and wouldnt fix the points even though he knew they were wrong , so you went on a open forum and stated the issue, then after 3 1/2 weeks he post the final points and deletes your name off the list !!

This is his original post he'd saying that he finished 3rd in the B main every race so how does that make him 3rd overall in points????

Here is a cut and paste on what the local guys have put foward about this. I have left the names out but it seems strange to me.

"Here is the deal about what you guys are doing though. Everybody that reads this thread already got the message that there is a problem with the points. Hopefully XXXXX and other race organizers will pay more attention and get them right in the future. By boycotting races all you guys are doing is hurting yourself. None of us are doing this for the organizers, we are doing it for comradely and fun of racing. If you boycott a local series where everybody races all you gonna do is go to the in-between races where only handful of people show up and where is the fun in that. Not to mention you might as well park your car during winter as Delta is the only indoor track.
By constantly bashing XXXXX on this forum you guys are alienating the rest of us from here. I know all about getting upset, i'm switching to a different truggy just because some pro acted like an ass during SilverState. But besides money my decision is not effecting "me" having fun racing with you guys.
Like i said earlier the point is well taken, whoever reads this stuff or cares is well aware of the points problem. Your personal beef with XXXXX is well documented, but I can go back 5 pages on this thread and nothing new has been said. If this is so important to you guys, start a new thread “problems with points” or something or better yet exchange phone numbers and you guys can text each other until your free minutes run out.
Please let this go and lets have fun."


What I want to know is this guy for real. It dosent matter if the points are correct just come on out and race???
