Brian:

Is qualifying rocket round or qual points and if qual points, how many rounds will count?

Just had a thought... six qualifiers means a lot of tires for everyone....let me look into this...might have to reformat this..give me a second on this, meaning a day.

Since it's a Rocket round, 6 rounds of qualifiers should be okay as it is not a "must" run all 6 qualifiers (race), it just means more run-time through controlled racing for everyone, isn't that what most racers want? just a thought

If the traction is anything like it was at the TFT's, I'll bring more rear 45's. They last a long time despite the high wear.

I agree with Sam... You don't have to run on Friday quals with it being rocket round. Last time we were there was probably the lowest tire wear I remember on that track although it was still quite high.

I agree with the 6 rounds, you don't have to run all of them; but if you need track time, you have it. You can't say you weren't ready for the main after that....

Also the Throphy Dash is the best thing ever..... Hope I can make it..

Are you doing top 5 cars 5 laps?
