New Rule voted in last year at the October Driver’s Meeting:
The main event will now be capped at 34 cars!
Any cars registered after 34 will cause a 10 lap qualifying race.
For whatever number of cars over 34 we will go below the 34th car the same #.
Those cars will be in a qualifying race.
If 38 cars register, then cars registered as #30 thru #38 will run in a 10 lap qualifying race before the main event.
The top 4 cars out of that qualifying race will advance to the main event bringing the total number of cars to 34.
The idea behind this race is NOT one of the smartest we’ve had and whether you are participating or a spectator –
