Tuscarora 50

Post by taurus014 » Sat Sep 05, 2015 8:40 am

Let's get off the Dream Race thread for a bit everyone. The Tuscarora 50 event will now pay $12,000 to win next Saturday night and $600 to start the event. Over $3,000 was added to the overall Main Event purse just this week. The Friday night race will be an All Star Sanctioned race with full points to the series and Port Royal. Saturday's T-50 will use a special modified time trial/heat race format to set the 26 car field.

A ten minute break will take place at the midway point of the event and cars will be stopped on the front stretch, for the fans, where crews can make changes to their cars.

Things just keep getting better at Port. Props to all involved for your continued hard work and dedication. Fair week at Port is my favorite week of the year. Nothing better!
Way she goes.............

Friday's Night Before The 50 will be a full All Star Show with Group Time Trials, Heats, Dash, B-Main, and 30 lap main event.

On Saturday night, the field will be split in half for time trials, Group A and Group B. Lowest pill number goes out first in Group A. Second lowest pill number will go out first in Group B, and so on.

A total of 4 heats will be run, 2 from group A and 2 from group B. Heat invert will be 4. (Fast times will start 4th).
Top 2 finishers plus the fastest time trial in each group that qualifies but does not finish in the top 2 will go to a 10-car combined re-draw.

The front row of B-Main(s) will consist of the drivers with the best times who haven't qualified. The rest of the B-main lineup(s) will be by heat race finish. B-Main qualifiers will tag the rear of the A-Main.

Drivers must run the same right rear tire for time trials, their heat race, and the first segment of the A-Main. Drivers may use a different tire for the B-Main.

At the halfway break, teams can do anything to the car, including changing tires. Cars will be stopped along the frontstretch.
Only green flag laps will count toward the 50.

Current forecast for Saturday Night in Port Royal is 100% chance of rain. Dang.
Hopefully it changes between now and then.

Good news is that it is certain we will see the 50, just not sure if it'll happen Saturday or Sunday. Sunday's temps look very fall like.

If they run it Sunday I hope they cancel the Econo lates or atleast start at 5. 6pm is early but will most likely still be a late night.

"In all races, lapped cars will be placed at the rear of the field on all restarts. Lapped cars will be lined up by position, not
necessarily the way they are running on the track."

Could definitely make a late race caution a little more interesting than usual....

Track was awesome after the brief rain shower. The racing was nothing short of amazing. Marks and Sheldon Haud put on a high flying show around the top-side of the track. DD was incredible too, re-starting at the rear and back up to a top 5. :clap:
