ChickmagnetRacing wrote:Qualifying Format for the "MudSummer Classic" (In Text Form)

Five heat races (8 laps each); only green flag laps count
Five trucks transfer from each heat
Lineup for the qualifying races will be based on qualifying speeds with four locked-in trucks (trucks in the top 20)
The top-five trucks in qualifying will start on the pole for their respective qualifying race
Highest finishing non-locked-in truck will transfer to race from each qualifying race
From the heats, 25 trucks will have earned spots into the feature

15-Lap Last Chance Race; only green flag laps count
Top 4 will make up positions 26-29
The lineup will be based on the finish from the qualifying races

Starting position No. 30 will go to the most recent past series’ champion who has not already qualified. If the 30th starting position is not filled by an eligible champion, it will be assigned to the next highest finishing truck in the Last Chance Race.

The "feature" will be 150 laps in distance, and broken up into three segments.
Segment 1 - 60 laps
Segment 2 - 50 laps
Segment 3 - 40 laps

Pit stops will be allowed in between each segment to make adjustments.
I LOVE THIS! :clap: :yessss:

Shoutout to NASCAR. I think they got the format right on this one.

this should be the format EVERY weekend for all levels of nascar with lap counts adjusted for each track. 1 day events for all divisions. this would definitely put butts back in the stands and in front of the tv.
My OPINIONS are just that and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of anyone or any track I am associated with!

agree. it would make them actually race instead of riding around for 400 miles and racing the last 100.
