  1. Even if you were to remove the outlaw win, Mike has put up some really good finishes this year in both the BB and 358 classes, an occasional LM race thrown in for spice.... Hopefully he carries this over to next year too an adds another contender on the SDS.

  3. During Billy Jr's recap at the 17:30 ish mark of Mandee's vlog he talks about the Mod's aero characteristics being a little too close to sprint cars when he talks about how hard it is to pass the leader in when not in traffic. I haven't really noticed, or maybe I just always assumed the leader was just faster, or maybe it's because he had whatever line he wanted to take. This question is really more for the drivers on here, it what Billy is saying really noticeable, is the leader's car that much harder because of the clean air on his car vs the 2nd place car or is it a combination of all? If this means more "sliders" for mod passes vs the 2 lane side by side by side passes with a guy bouncing of the cushion and one hugging the bottom, I'm not so sure I like where this is going...😕 Maybe I am reading too much in to what he said???

    Bicknell?

    Other than having way more numbers helping their case, are there sportsman cars other than BRP that are winning often? The top drivers can win in anything, if a 8th to 10th place guy switches and all of a sudden is up front weekly, I would say there's something in the switch. With so many Bicknells out there, it's not only the support from BRP themselves, there's also the support of the friends in the pits beside you that you can pick their brain.

    Bicknell?

    Alphabetically it's first, when teams are flipping through the yellow pages, they get called ahead of the others....🤔

    A New DTD

    Agreed... the only reason I requested the points updates was because I have more faith in you guys doing it faster than the actual tracks...😁

    Maybe a scrolling banner that displays the top 10 in points of tracks as well as the series points?...
  8. 66 GT40 that was part of the program that kicked ferrari's ass for a few years. Here's one from sotherby's if anyone is looking for xmas ideas for me... 😃 https://rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/MO18/Monterey/lots/r0073-1966-ford-gt40-mk-ii/692159
  9. You think opening up the rules would make things cheaper to to the lower funded teams?....... please explain.. If the rules weren't there, there wouldn't be a BB or 358 class anymore. Everyone but the elite teams would be in a sportsman. Last time I looked, there ain't enough elite teams to keep the SDS going let alone their weekly tracks.
  10. Never did I say they had to use a BRP chassis, just that I would rather have more people winning than the few we do now.
  11. Would be great to see HBR back to being one of the favorites on the tour again. If every car was a BRP and it meant we now have 10-12 cars that could win on the tour instead of the few we have now, I don't see it as a bad thing at all.

    Disqualified

    His complete car is listed for sale online. Is he done or just switching classes? Pretty sure that air filter base wasn't putting him up front at all these races..
  13. Far superior to the "don't race until the last 50". Hyping up a 200 lap race that is usually ho hum until the last 50 (if lucky) doesn't make it a better race. Just means that more people will be disappointed with the product being less than advertised.
  14. 100 laps tops, these cars/drivers/teams are built to win sprints, not marathons. Usain Bolt doesn't have to run the 800m at the end of the Olympics. Why change the theory used to win every other race all season in order to win this one?...
  15. 100 lap races are more than long enough. These drivers aren't supposed to be professionals at long races, strategic timed stops or fuel calculators. They spend every other lap in their cars all season long going as fast as possible, knowing that everyone else is pretty much on the same strategy. Their "superbowl" should be decided the same way. Just make it a night race where the track has a chance at offering different groves.
