This is a quote from the track owner:

The Bounty
OK guys!! Been throwing this around in my mind for a couple weeks now, really ever since I saw the wanted poster here on the board!! This thread http://www.ashevillerc.com/showthread.php?tid=979 gives me the perfect chance to throw it out there and see the response!!!!!! Pump a little extra in the thought process of all you racers!! So here we go!!

Being a track owner you really don't want the same guy winning ever race he enters in!! Nothing personal to that driver' it's just good business if you have different winners!! Everybody feeling they have a fighting chance so to speak!! Now I the track owner cannot change the outcome, that must be done by the other drivers in that class, HOWEVER I can try to encourage the other drivers in the class to do better and "win one for the gipper"!! So what if we do impose a "Bounty" system here @ MMR? This is not meant in any way to "go against" or to make a "Villian" out of the guy who's winning the class but more to "put a fire" under those other racers in that class! Here's the outline of how it might work:

Say a racer (we'll use Tim for example since it started with him!) wins three class races in a row!! That makes his class a "Bounty Hunter" class for the next event!! I as track owner will post the first bounty of a set fee!! Now each racer in that class may also join in the "bounty" by posting the fee also!! All the fees from the bounty will be paid out as a reward to the racer who beats the guy the bounty was taken out on!! To claim the reward you must have entered the bounty also!! You don't have to enter the bounty to race the class, but you do have to enter the bounty to receive the reward!! This is set aside from the normal payout rules! They will remain the same!!!

Now the racer in which the bounty was taken out on also can "rob the stagecoach" and claim the bounty by winning or finishing higher than the racers who put the price on his head!! And since he's the one the bounty was took out on he doesn't have to pay the bounty fee!!
Anyone can enter the bounty as long as they follow the class rules!! In the case of 2wd mod you "stock" boys can move up in class and try to take the bounty!!
Or we could have it to where the racer in which the bounty was took out on can't win the bounty if he beats all that paid bounty fees and it does roll over to the next event!! But he doesn't have to pay a the $10.00 race entry fee as long as the bounty is on his head!!! He's still in the running for the regular payout, but not the bounty payout!!

Think I like the second option a little better!! But we all have a say!!

An Example of 2nd option:
Tim has a bounty on his head! (has free entry into class)
We have 6 total trucks in class!
All other racers pay a bounty fee of $5.00= $25.00 reward
We payout top 3 = $30.00 total payout (60% of $50 is $30)(1st $15, 2nd $10, 3rd $5)
Say in the main Jesse moves up in class and wins!! He gets $15 for 1st + $25.00 bounty reward!
Say Tim finishes 2nd, he gets $10 regular payout
and Racer Ray finishes 3rd, he gets $5 regular payout!

But say Tim wins the main! He still gets the regular payout and the bounty rolls over to next event!! But he still plays for free till the bounty has been collected!! That way he's getting something out of the deal to!!!! We're not cutthroats are we!!! LOL

All we really need to do is set the "bounty" fee!!! I'm thinking either $3.00 or $5.00 fee but I will go with whatever the majority says!!!! This is in addition to the $10.00 race fee!!

I really like the idea of this and think it can turn into a highlight reel of racing!!! Let me know what you think and any questions you might have!!!
