Default Things are looking up!

So, Ive been on the phone for most of the talking with manufactures and working on promotional stuff for this race, and I wanted to take a second to let you guys in on what I've learned today.

On-Road is not dead, and things are looking up for us (on-roaders).

I predict that this event will be one of the best attended ROAR related events in recent history by far. One manufacturer (who loves the color purple reported that they would be bringing a team of at least 12 (they normaly run a much smaller team). This person also seems to think that with the coming rule changes and the central location of the event, attendance will be "through the roof".

Anyway I just thought I would share this positive feedback with you, as I truely do believe on-road racing is on track for a comeback.

Too be honest I haven't read all of it so if this has been discussed please ignore it....

With the way it was layed oout on this page with the master mixed in with stk. then taken out for their own mains..would that then move guys that are lower up?

If the "master" quals. for the stk. A would he then have teh option to run that main instead of being pulled out or can he run BOTH????

Example: Say Espo quals. 2nd overall, 1st for Maters. and he decides to run the maters A's would that then bump the BQ up to tenth and all others up one spot below that???

that's why I have a $800 bmi tamale pickle xray I was using tc5 for it's lower price. but mostly I just run the $200 12th scale that you don't have to buy anything else for and get to run for 3 more minutes per race without crappy rubber tyres..
