Exactally we only need 1 main. Same time involved.. Why not see if you can get 25 min drivers first.

like I said earlier, Im running no matter what, and having fun...
I did'nt suggest not having a main just said no AAA Main (for any class) unless they have over a certain number of racers in the class.

I dont' think you understand what I'm trying to say.


Example..

60 total stock entrys= 6 qualifing heats per round for stock, 12 total for the day ( 2rounds )


qualifing results for the 60 "stock entry's"

TOP 10

travis s
brad j
xxxx
xxxx
xxxx
xxxx
xxxx
sean c
xxxx
Sterling (master entry)

11-20

Skypilot (master entry)
xxxx
xxxx
John Tag (master entry)
xxxx
Javier Arroyo (master entry)
xxxx
xxxx
xxxx
Jeff Maurier (master entry)

21-30

xxxx
xxxx
xxxx
Rich Stidam (master entry)
xxxx
xxxx
xxxx
xxxx

So

Travis S would be TQ for stock overall and First in the "STOCK A MAIN"


Master's A MAIN would be

Sterling
Skypilot (richie)
John Tag
Javier Arroyo
Jeff M
Rich S
xxxx
xxxx
xxxx
xxxx


The TOP 10 MASTERS get there AAA MAIN together to battle it out for the MASTERS WIN and MASTERS trophy.

ALL the others run in the combined B, C, D, E mains

Could save time in qualifing and in Main event times be not have seperate MASTERS B, C mains.

This is just my idea, nothing more. Dawn said she wanted to hear ideas so this is mine.

I under stood what you were saying Scott, it was skypilot and dawn that talked about not running them together in the main.

but yes, we are all here giving our opinion lol, and yours is just as important as mine, or anyone elses, just come race lol thats the bottom line

I think you got one thing wrong tho, I think tag will out qualify skypilot :P

Hey Scott,

You missed my name just before Javier's...

I would say if we have 25 or more Masters, we should get a triple-A main. If not, we only have an A main; but, the same number of entries should apply to the other ROAR classes too.

To me, the more important issue these days would be our (not just Masters) having a brushless TC class to run in...preferably 13.5 Super/Pro Stock (the most common BL motor).

I really want to go to this nationals, it looks like a great track. But the only way I'll be able to go is if I win the lottery... Spent to much on going to the Nats last year.

No problem...I can't remember his name either.

We Left Coast Masters just all need to get together to figure our who will go and a way to get there. Maybe you could go discount airfare as my son or something. j/k

Talking Masters Class

Why are we hounding over 25 in the masters class when you only had 1 class at the 07 nats that had more than 25 entrys. Guys and girls you all beatin a dead horse to death. LOL !!!! Just Either have a masters class or don't!!! Don't try to play a numbers game when actually they had one class last year that had 9 cars and you ran Triple A's.

I hate your idea. Why does Travis get the TQ rather than using my name? I feel so left out. In fact....I'm playing the race card!

why not just up the number of racers required to make a class at nats. less then 25, no class.
I agree with skypilot. I won't attend a race run like that.

Nor will you have to. These are just ideas being tossed around. When all is said and done the right classes will be ran and the event will kick ass! Feel free to be a part of it if you would like.
