Default Possible changes to 2007 Snowbird Nationals

Found this on the Snowbird chat page (http://p079.ezboard.com/fsnowbirdnationalsfrm2):

Check out Snowbird poll on website

www.snowbirdnationals.com/

The thinking is this. We kill the club races. Have 2 days of practice - Tuesday and Wednesday. We start heat racing Thursday. 2 heats road and 1 heat oval on Thursday. 1 heat road and 2 heats oval Friday. Both have random heats setup for 1st 2 rounds (no more sorting). Both have resort after 2nd and after 3rd round. Saturday would have heat of road and heat of oval. Right after road heats, mains are set, and the b-mains will race saturday. winners get to run a-mains. Same for oval. Oval runs last heat. Mains are set then the b-mains are run. All this will be a new tradition for the birds = the last chance day... all the racing will be done around 9pm Saturday night and working on a pool party then afterwards... thoughts?

1 extra heat. 1 extra resort. chance for b-mains to make a.

Vote now or let others decide your fate. LOL

I like the 4th round and extra resort but I dont agree with the Bumpup's. Take the top 10 of each class and thats it.

4th round and a resort is great. I agree on no bump ups! A main can be brutal without extra cars in it.

I think adding the bump ups will make the "B" s that much more exciting and give the guys that make the B a little more exposure.

Good ideas Mike...

from talking with Mike i like the idea.

this is what it would be

top 9 cars lock into the a main then at the conclusion of qualifing on saturday the b mains would run with the b main winner would then bump up into the a main on sunday.

i think this is a awesome idea. think how intense the b mains will be.

now if you were to put in 11 cars that would be cool

Dang ...that would blow chunks ...4 rounds of qualifying and you're the 10th qualifier just to get bumped out cause you were taken into the wall on the 1st corner of your BQ position in the B main.

our how awesome it would be to qualify 19 and make the a.


i think it will bring some more excitment to the race. and some motivation @ vegas out of 8 b mains a total of 12 drivers skipped there race.

i also think it will bring some pride into making the b.

change is good. this will be awesome
