    I'm interested to see how it will go. It kinda reminds me of how I heard back in the day tracks would pay positions based off of the crowd. Like 5% to first etc. I'm a bit surprised to see if you don't make the feature at all you only get $100 but all the more reason to make the feature. I really hope it goes well and I think it's great that Lucas Oil is sanctioning the show. Gets some big names there for that run their series. I honestly do wonder though how many local (Northern OH) teams will race it. I'm betting only the top 10-12 teams will go from up in Attica/Wayne County/Hilltop because there just isn't a whole lot of depth until you get out a little ways. I expect to see the Carpenter, Conley, and a bunch of other southern drivers compete. Hopefully some of the top dogs in MI come down as well. It's gonna be a heck of race for sure. I'm certainly interested in going to it but my racing schedule will depend entirely on my work schedule as I should have every other weekend off.

    I will add this. I know that Sommer is awarding provisionals for guys promoting the event by the my race points or whatever it was. But I personally feel like that could get a little out of hand and just lead to a wealthy team saying hey we'll put in this much money for our driver so he gets into the main event no matter what! I do like the popularity contest for the final provisional as it'll get a well liked driver in the show. I completely understand why he's doing the racer points provisionals as it will encourage the promotion of the event but not sure I agree with it. Would be cool to see some sponsors or local fans get behind one or two of our local drivers and try to get them that spot but I imagine much like other things in racing they'd still get outspent.

      Car count should be good with all the big names for Eroc since the outlaws didn't schedule against it.
