As fans, I would really like to know what your favorite format is ... qualifying, pill draws, dashes, etc. I have a chance to affect one race and want to know what y'all would like to see. Drivers please feel free to weigh in as well -- but let me know you are a driver, please?

In canada they race the top 2 late models against the top 2 mod drivers from the previous week. 4 laps, $50 to the winner or something like that
Really close racing, and I mean close! A very good show.

I prefer the pill draw and heat races, not time trials. Think it makes for better racing. Just a fan.

I run super latemodel, and i really like the q'fying and heats..But I'm also the owner of the car and these engines need freshening after 1600 are so laps..thats $3500 bucks, now yall can say if ya can't afford it don't race, but **** if everybody that could not afford to race quit there wouldn't be any races...So here is what I propose..Q'fy run a dash for cash pay like 200 to win it and
2nd 100 3rd 75 and 50 for the final 3 spots
draw for the invert either for the dash are for the feature...But drawing for postion...You might as well sell your 50k latemodel go to Vegas and bet on Black, at least you've got a 50/50 chance there...I love that the fans have a place like this to be heard, but you guys have got to PLEASE consider are cost...thanks for your time

Hey Bizkit,with the spinoff of Mirant your Southern co stock will receive 25cents on the dollar,that should help some with your car,plus you have a new CEO to the tune of six million a year. (Allen Franklin). He is an ole Alabama boy. I used to work on the same floor with him before he moved up to the nose bleed section of the Tower of Power. Tell him DC said to give you some sponsor money LOL. Man it sure is nice to be retired. I am going to come over to see you race sometime this year,until then take care ole buddy. May the spirits smile on you in the winners circle........Mooneyes.........

mooneyes,
I noticed the stock, and I hadn't heard about the new CEO..(Had some friends in the B'ham office try and to persuade the brass to help out little Dougie Reed in the Busch stuff, they said if it wasn't golf, they weren't interested..*grin* dang yuppies, Tiger wannabe's..lol...)Since I went to work for 3m in December, I've not done a good job keeping up with the folks I know still there.
Hey do you know Bob Andrews, he's a neighbor and retired from SouthernCo. He was a Lawyer with them, now owns a golf course close by. Anyway, I hope your spiritual connections are right on the victory lane deal..If your there when I win, come on down to victory lane and we'll do that ancient tribal dance
(the jig)..lol...Hope your evening's are full of warm desert breeze's and your morning's full of spiritual connection's and oneness with the inner peace!!! whatever that all means..*grin*......take care buddy

Thanks everybody! I like the modified/late model idea. Have to give that some real thought. Bizkit, you don't have to talk costs to me -- I married a driver w/only one sponsor! I only have a chance to affect one division for one night. Just trying to make it the best it can be!

Thanks again.
