          Fast series said they are doing hot laps+quali at same time like Attica does in an effort to speed along the program.

            They did that last night at Atomic and I got home this morning at 3:40 AM. So much for speeding up the program.

              Single car qualifying at Waynesfield is worth the price of admission alone. If the idea is to speed up the show, which it doesn't, just start qualifying ten minutes earlier. One of the 32 reasons I hate group qualifying is shown below....enjoy.

                    Very true about the drivers and being smart ... I mean spread out and give yourself enough room to get good laps in.

                    I think qualifying is the only "fair" way of doing it especially for bigger shows ... pill draw isn't great for the teams/drivers especially if they get stuck in the back and have huge amount of cars in heats like a lot of series/tracks are doing now. To me, having 10 cars in a heat is way to many especially when your talking 8 laps for most tracks.

                    As for time ... it shouldn't be an issue because if the track is on time qualifying should be done before the official start time and be nice if that happened more frequently than a rarity at some tracks.

                      I spent 2 hours sitting in the car in the parking lot, heard hot laps fire up so I bought a ticket so I could save seats, sat down for 2 groups of qualifying and more rain. Left and had dinner at the truck stop in Wapakoneta. But I am glad that they re-scheduled for Sunday Sept. 3rd.

                        They had 4 divisions with total 115 cars. With that many cars and timing 2 of the 4 classes ( 50 % of the cars based on 32 410's and 32 360's tonight ), it's ridiculous to list an " intermission " on the sequence of events posted on their board. I have no gripe with time trials , but please start hot laps earlier and do away with "intermission ". A lot of us are no longer in the age 18-40 range. I was there but not so sure about attending the reschedule date. This event ran quite late the past 2 years too. They had a great crowd in the stands and pits, so let's reward all with a timely show. First race at 7.30 on the nose and out by 10.30 to 10.45 PM. Just my usual worthless opinion.

                          Not a good reschedule date for the 410's going against the 10k to win ascoc show at wcs. I know a lot of the fast series cars wouldn't run wcs anyway but im sure its going to bother the ones that would've. Be interesting to see how many actually follow the fast series next year. I think I would rather be like lee Jacobs, dean jacobs and philo and run were ever I wanted to go. I don't think the fast can afford to lose anymore cars since the only ones who follow it now are the fremont regulars.

                            I know this has been covered before, but I want to whine. I like Waynesfield and it's fairly close to home so I go several times a year, but people need to recognize bigger shows and have some courtesy. Pulled in for the Sizzler last night and the first thing I see is people tailgating on the west end of the parking lot, that's great, but one of them was parked right in the driveway. On a normal Saturday that"s fine, but when you know the place will be packed? Next thing is stadium seats, I have one and I love it. I take it to the Field all the time and also to Shady Bowl and a couple other places, but I have a regular butt cushion that I take to the Speedweek show and to the Sizzler. Do these people realize how much they screw the people behind them when there is limited seating? The last thing is smoking in the bleachers, it doesn't bother me alot but if I had a small child it would. At the Speedweek show a guy in front of me was puffing away at a cigar!! That's nice, how about I fart in your face a couple times? Sorry, just wanted to complain.

                              Some tracks could get a few ushers to park cars and monitor seating. Prolly will never happen though. id rather have smoke in my face and a stadium chair in my knee then sit anywhere close to the people at muskinghum last night. I was at the top row like usual and this lady was standing on her seat three rows in front of me most of the night. and if she wasn't up yelling with two beers in her hand her boyfriend was. Seeing at who they was cheering for they obviously are hilltop regulars and nothings worse then hilltop hillbillys imo. If you need advice to get away from stadium chairs just mark the seats in front of you also. if the place gets full give them away to people looking for seats in your section. You can see if they have a blanket, cushion, or stadium chair. If they have busch lights in their hands, etc... you get the point.
