Our racer meeting is coming up this Sun @ 2PM in our showroom. In an effort to let people know items that will be discussed, I am putting some of our thoughts about discussion topics so you can be prepared for a meaningful dialogue.
RACE SCHEDULE THOUGHTS
Avoiding ALL holidays, ALL Cup Karts races, and ALL Rt 66 races leaves us with 14 racedays as follows: APR 6,13,27 MAY 18 JUN 15,22,29 JUL 20 AUG 3,10,24 SEP 7,14,28. Our thoughts at this point are: Run 12, Count 11, 2 Rain dates, evening schedule for JUN, JUL, AUG. It has been suggested IF we run alternate track, we establish track records for that as well.
FRIDAY NIGHT LEAGUE —– Sponsored by G&I Electric
Session 1 schedule: MAR 29 APR 5,12,26 MAY 3,10,17,31
Session 2 schedule JUN 7,14,21,28 JUL 12,19,26 AUG 2
Session 3 schedule AUG 9,16,23 SEP 6,13,20,27 OCT 4
Our thoughts: Count 7 of 8/session, Count 21 of 24 for season, Rainouts double next night, Oval on even numbered nights for 12 races, counting 10, run Elite karts (as an extra) on night w/o oval races.
Questions include: weight 190 vs 200, larger parade lap for race starts, alternate track pattern, and possible format change (see below).
A new format has come to our attention. This would replace the two heat races with two lengthy prac/qual sessions. Your best times in these sessions, rather than your finishing position, would grid you for the feature lengthened to 12 laps for nightly points.
Watch for another post about JR & SR (new) Academy along with other ideas in a day or two.
