That doesn't fit into the grand plan of NHRA. What you may ask is the grand plan of NHRA. Well let me tell you my "theory"

I fully and honestly believe that the NHRA is intentionally hurting the sportsman racer so that they can have only Pro cars on sunday. The reason being is that if they can get the "show" done in around three hours they will start trying to get the "show" broadcast live like a NASCAR race is. Or maybe on a 1 hour delay or something. The way I see it working is this. On thursday the sportsman will qualify and friday elims will start and saturday elims will finish inbetween the four sessions of Pro Qualifying. On sunday the "show" will be eliminations "LIVE" or so to speak...

Just my theory....Flame on....

Sounds about right!!!! NHRA really could care less about the sportsman racer. As long as the stands are packed for the pros.
