    Here’s a resolution to the tow money issue. Tow money should not be on a graduated basis. If the top 10 are being paid, all should be paid equally, because it costs everyone the same per mile to get to a race. The better teams will make more money per night based on their higher finish, as it should be, but tow money should be the same for all 10 or 12 or however number of positions are paid. I would think no matter what your opinion is on this issue, all would probably agree we don’t need constant turnover. It takes more than a half dozen or so full time travelers to make a traveling series a strong attraction at the front gate. Lasty, I think most posters on forums don’t own or sponsor cars and have no idea what the true costs are ( not condemning anyone here ). Just Food For Thought from a long time owner / sponsor.
    That works, too. Keep the little guys in business and keep the car counts healthy.

      I think tow money should be rewarded to the highest guys in points and should be a tier drop system. It would make teams try to beat other teams to increase their amount of tow money they can get. It's an incentive. Most fans only go there to watch the Top 3-5 ASCoC members anyways. Why does the ASCoC want to pay the guys that are in the C-mains every race the same toll that the guys that are putting more wear and tear on their cars and engines by running more laps and putting their cars in the main event? I actually sent an email to the ASCoC last year asking for something like this, after they came out with an email saying they aren't able to pay more than 15 members last year. Just my two cents.

          Well they can fit 5 different trailers in the trailer now. Reutzel was moving to PA correct? I thought I recall reading that somewhere but could be wrong. Everything looks cool though. Like the maroon.

            Well when your traveling from New York to Knoxville you need that type of trailer ... when your going to Attica and Fremont all the time you don't and you can worry about those "engines" and other things for the car.

                  Danny usually down there in the Buch 13. Bring in the #48 probably help him carry momentum into season. Good driver hope to get to see him race this year over here.

                    FYI - ASCoC couple of Line-up changes for 2018
                    .
                    1. Trying to keep heat races to 10 cars and under. Breakdown: 30 cars and Under - 3 heats, 31-40 cars 4 Heats, Over 41 is 5 heats (no 6 heat format)
                    2. B - Main Lineup - Top 2, non-transfer, in overall qualifying time, start on front row of B-main, rest of B, C and D main lineup up by heat race finish.

                    2018 Racin' Chasin' Counter: 5 - (3)-Ocala, (2)-Volusia
                    2017 Racin' Chasin' Counter: 57 Races @ 30 Tracks; (7-Rain Outs)
                    2016 Racin' Chasin' Counter: 59 Races @ 28 Tracks; (15-Rain Outs)
                    2015 Racin' Chasin' Counter: 56 Races @ 25 Tracks; (12-Rain Outs)

                      Like the 10 cars and under for heat races.
                      About time the B's and such will use finish from heats.
                      Hated seeing the guy do good and then his qualifying time penalized him.

                        I was very pleased when I saw the aforementioned format changes. With the driver roster and the improved format can't wait to get to a race this year.

                          Thanks ... I do like the deal of no heat race bigger than 10 cars because it seemed like the heats were bigger and bigger with fewer laps and not giving guys a chance. Good to hear and sounds like rewarding guys for "racing" in heats and think that is a improvement. Actually like the deal of less cars in heat races to give guys a better chance of racing to get into the A-Main.

                          Question for you ... Why the possibility of no 6 heats? I realize that doesn't happen or is very rare nowadays, but just curious why not a possibility and just trying to understand the thinking behind it especially if a huge car count might happen at some of these events because you might end up with 10, 11, or 12 cars in a heat race at some point in time?

                          For Example ... Attica for Ohio Speedweek ... 54 cars show up why not make it 6 heats, 9 cars in each heat instead of 10/11 cars for 5 heats, take 3 cars to the A-Main, than have 2 options of either take 4 out of the B-Main, and 2 fastest qualifiers that didn't qualify for the A-Main fill the last 2 spots or just take 6 from the B-Main?

                          Give the fans more heats so it seems like they are getting more races for their money, give the competitors a better chance to move around in heats, and win-win for all ... (IMO).

                          I do feel the All-Stars have the best format (even last year) out there for a series with racing and qualifying being equally important and think just makes it that much better.

                            Format will only help car counts too b/c you don't have to have the massive engine to make the show. Just gotta pass some cars in the heat.

                                I'm hearing over 16 members signed up. Some names I did not expect. Shaping up to be a good year. Chad WILL have some competition for the title.
