7 races completed vs. 7 races yet to be run looks like 50% of the races were completed to me. At least using the math I was taught ! :roflmao:

brent, ur missing the point of not having a late model consi. they were 28 cars on hand. only 24 cars start a feature. by my math 28-24= 4 cars that wouldnt make the feature. how were they not going to run a consi? were they really going to pay $75 to the extra 4 cars. i cant see the grove paying an extra $300. but i do understand the driver's and team's view of running gas, tires, etc.

I was just going by what was typed above. I'm not a fan of ANY classes that run there. :roflmao: Still 7 of 14 is 50%.

Correct Brent, 7 is half of 14, but seven 8 lap qualifying races do not equal Three 8 lap qualifying races, two 20 lap features and two 15 lap features

I'm thinking the policy stated was half the EVENTS , not laps . At least every race I was at used qualifying events instead of laps. :roll:

Seems to me they should start all 28 LLM's in order to say qualifying was complete.

If the features are made up rainchecks are not honored, if they are not made up rainchecks are honored, otherwise where dose the money come from to pay the second purse if they are run. It is not rocket science and has been that way at almost all tracks for the 50 years I have been going. I never counted counted laps to determine when rain checks will honored and have always known before leaving the track what was going on without asking. If they say the features will be made up that answers the question. It is not any tracks fault if someone can't be there for the makeups.
