Mike,

Can you explain how the scoring works if you are the only car in class as well as a DNF? I was under the impression that you only receive 50 points if you are only the only car in class. If that is the case why was Ziggy was awarded 100 points when he was the only car in ST1 in the Sunday race at Lightning in the beginning of the year. Additionally, he was awarded 90 points for a DNF on Saturday at Thunderbolt.

I know time is limited but if you could also update the points and track records at Pocono(I set them for both days :0 ) it would be very helpful to me in making a decision as to making a race or skipping one for family vacation. The wifey isn't too happy about, but who cares!!!


I did some research on this for you.

NJMP Lightning- ST1 had 2 competitors on Saturday, if you read the NASA NE CCR, it clearly states that if any other car than yourself is entered into your class, even if they never even make it to the track, you came to the track on good faith thinking you were going to have a competitor, therefore points are awarded in the normal NASA breakdown, even if you are the only competitor to enter the track in your class.

NJMP Thunderbolt- Ziggy did not get a DNF as per the NASA CCR, if a competitor completes at least 1/2 the laps of the lead car in his class, he is considered a "finisher". Therefore on Sunday's race he gets the full 90 points because he finished 2nd place.

Hope this helps, if I need to dig out the actual reg numbers I can if it will help folks understand the rules.

Mike, do qualification times count as track records, or does a lap time need to be recorded during a race?

Very good question. All track records are only during races in NASA.

Also if you are DQed from the race for any reason, your record doesn't count.

Mike,

When will the scores for Round 4 be posted as well as the track records for Round 3 and 4?

No track records for round 3.

Points and track records will be up for round 4 in about a week or so.

Mike,

There were track records set at Pocono. Please take a look at ST1 and GTS3, at a minimum.

It is a completely new track. Therefore EVERYONE gets a new track record. :)

Same configuration and same distance, just new pavement and curbing. I don't see how that makes it a new track. No other sanctioning body, like NASCAR, ARCA, SCCA, consider it a new track. Why do we? Why wasn't it a new track when they replaced the majority of it 2 years ago?

If that's the case, are you going to create a "New Pocono" track on there and load all of the times in? That seems silly.

Mike,

Not sure what that means. Are New records being recognized for Pocono? If not, then why?

I set one in GTS3 and beat the crap out of my car doing it. I would like to be recognized for it.

If Every class set a new track record then so be it.

Rick

The track is significantly wider than it was previously, therefore we will be establishing "new" records for the "New Pocono Single Infield" Additionally Pocono is also ran in 2 different directions so there are basically "New Single CW" and "New Single CCW".

If you guys are so hung up on records, contact Joe Casella the regional director and we'll set the records however you guys want.
