If you are planning to attend only the NSCA event in Milan, would you be upset if NMCA participants were allowed to be placed at the bottom of the ladder if they came in early Sunday from the Martin event?

Since this is Trash or Be Trashed, leave your reasons in replies if you like.

I don't think we are in position to turn away car count.

they should be allowed to come albeit with some type of penalty

either
no qualifier
or
one qualifier Sunday, no points for qualifying only show up
or
one qualifier for eveyrone Sunday

or some other proposal.

I voted for Bring'em on. I'm not planning on racing at the event, however I do plan on attending as a spectator and supporting vendor. I know there are racers coming from many states away with high dollar cars that would be interested in running with the NSCA. With the PRO events typically having a better turnout and better media coverage, I suspect when forced to choose between the two they will go to the PRO race if they don't normally run with either sanctioning body for points. From a racers standpoint, if I can hit two events with half the gas, I'm all for it. This would equate to a better turnout fan and car count wise. In all honesty, I will be attending both races myself as a spectator (I might even run True Street with the PRO series).

Let's say I'm a cheap ass and I want to save money. I'm going to show up at every NSCA event Sunday Morning. That will save me hotel fees and allow me to travel on Saturday vs. taking Friday off work. I would NEVER abuse the rule like that....or would I?

Didn't the IHRA cancel the Friday night Top Sportsman race (was it a Quick 8?)because guys were racing Friday and blowing off the rest of the event?

I don't think that Sunday morning qualifying should be at every event. Also a points penalty would be fine and I suspect it'll be bit harder for someone to get their tune nailed down with one qualifying pass.

That's my point exactly for placing Sunday arrivals at the bottom of the ladder vs. qualifying on Sunday Morning. No qualifying points. If you're chasing points then qualifying is darned important. I'm a great example my own self with #2 and #3 q's in first two but out second and then first rounds, missed Cecil, dropped only one place from 4th to 5th.

When someone can show me how to put points in my bank account I'll care about them. Until then it's all about the money. I'm such a WHORE!
