To me, it's about having good competition. Have you ever qualified in lower main than usual, just because you were having a bad day - and then won so easily because no one else could keep up with you? With no bump up, how much fun was that?

At our local club races, the B Main is more exciting to watch and race in than in the A Main. The A Main guys seem to spreadout and just race the track. Sure, placing in the top 3 of the A Main is where most people want to be. But what if it wasn't any fun getting there?

Yeah, the B main is way better.

Those A main guys are way to serious.
