True, he just comes across as being the biggest dickhead in the world but he's really a big ole' soft teddy bear

I would be interested in the 9.90 class. I go to Milan and run the 10.0 index but would prefer to race closer to home.

I have to think that a 9.90/10.00(which i know i could run those numbers)with very limited rules, like maybe a weight index, any combo...would be easy to fill and have a big interest... all those rules bout interiors, and frame notching... stock suspension, then I dont see many people building new combos or making radical changes to their junk to run a class that may or may not happen; I mean If we all way the same, or close to it for sbc vs bb, spray, na, turbo, and we all can run the number then what difference does it make... id say every one has close to the same chance then,,,jmho!

I'm thinking 8.90 might be too fast. That's approaching the quick 8 door cars. I know there's a TON of guys riding the 10.0 area. I think a 9.5 or a 9.9/10.0 e.t. would include more people that already show up. On the other hand, if an 8.9 field is set, it could attract some of those kind of cars though that might not otherwise come to TRP...

I'll be there to run the class if its a 8.90 index, no offense Cooke but I'm not sure there would be alot of interest in a 10.00 index class full of bracket cars. I think if the payout is worth it and the rules aren't real limiting there shouldn't be any problem attracting enough cars to build a 8.90 class. If the word gets out Thompson could possibly attract cars from Pittsburgh, Quaker City and some of the other surrounding areas. Shit Nasty Nova drives all the way from New York to run at Norwalk. And I think the cool thing about the Heads up/ index racing is it attracts cars from different areas that wouldn't normally come to a particular track and race. Whatever class it ends up being I hope its successful because bracket racing sucks.

If ya cant get the local racers appeased to do you real think any one is going to travel...prime example is Norwalk to milan.

If we're all runing heads up, all out what difference if they cars out of the bracket ranks vs your street assasin cars? just have weight set that we have to meet...what is the big deal, i can see why there is some much trouble getting this to gether... rules for this, rules for that, not for that etc, etc,....just my .02, good luck with that...

I don't think allot of the guys come from Milan for a couple of reasons, 1 the payout is more and 2 its a points series. I'm sure Norwalks program is going to grow its just gonna take time like Milans did, and I'm sure Thompsons will be the same its gonna take awhile for it to grow. If they go with a 8.90 index good for me if they go with a 10.00 index good for you, what ever they decide is fine with me.

Currently there is no scales at Thompson. I would say keep the rules real simple to get the ball rolling and car count up and you could tighten the rules as you go.
