You guys should be the headline act.
But it's the puppet show and Spinal Tap,not the other way around.

Wish I could be there.

Lee my point is that if they have any dramas during the running of the meeting we will get to the point again that the so called draw cards of the meeting will be running on a cold track and possibly throwing oil/ etc all over the place. Since being involved with a certain group one racer and seeing what happened lat the nationals last year when he didn't get a good chance to qualify in the last session I have a different view on circus act but it not that far from what I have been saying for years. This is a critical meeting for the championship both professional and sportsman and that should come first.

Re: Nitro Champs 2013 Official Thread

My belief is that the larger Pro Series AND Aeroflow combinations should just be the ANDRA eliminators. If there is a need for support it should be off the track.

That was how it used to be (in the rule book I believe) until Calder got the exemption to run the Jets at the Nationals in the 90's, then Willowbank run Supercharged Outlaws at the Winters, then the rule got canned.

But times change, and so do the demographics, politics and costs.

I do agree with Whitey run exhibition brackets as long as the main brackets don't suffer from any possible hold up from incidents. It is a gamble, same as running grudgies but also a fine line to keep your crowd entertained during turn around times. Don't forget any vehicle can blow up and oil down

I'm really disappointed I can't make it - this has the making of a really awesome meeting. I pray that the crowds get there to support all of the categories and also the first time in god knows how long all 3 Nitro brackets are racing

Good luck and safe racing to all, and thanks in advanced to DNA for the coverage. It keeps me sane up in Karratha when I'm working

Re: Nitro Champs 2013 Official Thread

Whitey, i actually agree with you. I have sat in the staging lanes for a few hours waiting to race, while non championship classes, got to run & i wasn't happy either.

But, been a bike racer, we are use to getting screwed over for( by) car classes. Leigh

They are in making about 20 doorslammers.
With 24 Pro Stock cars entered already, surely both of these categories will set a 16 car field ?

Re: Nitro Champs 2013 Official Thread

The Pro Stock guys seem all for 16 car fields, yet the Doorslammer guys don't want it (yet will gladly do grudge runs). Can't figure the logic there.
