Everyone seemed to think it worked well. We were done before 9pm on Saturday, and were done racing by 5pm on Sunday. Even with over 100 entries!

We will plan to continue to have 3 rounds of qualifying for the rest of the showdown. This will guarantee everyone at least 4 races, and those that make A mains or bump up from lower mains will get 5 races!
In the rest of the races we will make the qualifying qual points using your best 2 out of 3 rounds.

The race of the night in my book was the B main of stock buggy. Elijah Gibbs, John Weathers, and Tony Bailey were locked in an epic 3 way battle. Each moved in and out of the bump spots, capitalizing on each others mistakes. Little did they know that Lance Norton was in creep mode, slowly catching up after a bad start. In the last minute of the race Tony and John made final fatal mistakes and Lance was able to overtake them for the final bump! Great race guys.

The vibe in the pits was great and it seemed like everyone was having a good time. Looking forward to the rest of the series...
(Like Button)

not much more to say but what a great event and look forward to the next ones!

Rub it in, why don't you! Seriously, that B-Main was some knee-knocking nerve wracking fun and a great learning experience for me in a pressure cooker. Sometimes competing in a great race is as good or better than winning easily, even if it doesn't work out how you might like. Great job to Elijah and Lance for showing us how to get it done, and a great job to everyone organizing the event -- well done on all counts.

Ryan and I had a great time and are psyched to do the rest of the series, except for Bremerton -- the new date didn't work for us. :-(

great race and start to the series, love the 3 quals and the splitting up the 2nd round. Any chance we might get triple A mains???

I know it might take a few days...but when and where should we look for overall results now that 2 events are in the books?

Cheers

I will be in charge of points. I will post them in this thread. I am on vacation so the points won't get done until the end of this week. I am hoping to complete them by Sunday. Sorry for the brief delay...
