Hows about triple "F" mains? Seriously, I think the format is fine. Both methods of qualifying have their merits and for IIC we use rocket round and resorts.

Triple mains for all would be world class but too many entries and classes to make it work. If anyone can do it Scotty can!

If you have 8 classes at an average of 10 minutes for each and in between it only adds about another 3 hours to the program. Doable for sure as we are usually done by 3:00 PM on Saturday. But the problem is its that much time taken away from Scotty and Crew getting the track torn down to get it out of there on Sunday at a decent time and still being able to enjoy their Sat night out.

But your right...If anyone could do it in the future Scotty can!

Personally, I like the format the way it is.

It would be awesome to do triples but some of us are leaving Sat night to cut some travel cost.

IMO all races that take 4+ days to make the Main should have triple A mains. Thats why we all go, to race in the mains. And all your hard work can be wasted in a single main with a bad start.

Either way I'm going to the IIC this year but I would love to see all USA races take the triple A main format eventually.

I couldn't find it listed anywhere whether or not one driver could run Stock 17.5 and Modified TC, or if they could only run Super Stock and Modfied, or Stock and Super Stock. If someone could clarify this for me, that would be awesome.

Thanks

Is there somewhere we can find past IIC results? Not just the A mains but all the mains.
