Cup drivers shouldn't be able to run the nationwide series or the truck series either huh. They race those classes to keep their skill level up and gives them feedback for the cup race on Sunday. Most of all they do it for fun. Mod doesn't look like a whole lot of fun to me.

So you want to take club racing and split it up. say there are 35 guys that show up to a club race. 10 guys are 12th scale 10 are wgt and 15 are tc. you want to split that up? you have 3 new guys,10 guys that are pretty good but not sponsored and 2 sponsored pros. Why not run them all together in one class instead of creating more classes and taking more time out of the night then needed?

Because the 3 new guys need a chance to win or they'll quit

Some what true. Nationwide series drivers are PRO with a lot of money put into them. Comparing them to budget short track classes is again a mute point.] Sure, a lot of drivers do dirt oval (Kahne Stewart etc) but they do the top level. They don't just jump into there 410 at Southern Oregon Speedway and kick everybody's butt. They go to Eldora or Knoxville and race with big dogs.

Have you even driven a mod car? Seriously driven one?

Maybe other on-road classes such as Tamiya F1 and Mini can fill the void. Slow and cheap enough for newbies, yet fun/close racing even for the oldies

3 new guys in a novice, 12 guys in whatever class. RCPlus already does that.

Besides, why would Jimmie Johnson go to F1? That would be a step down.
