How are your tracks rules on restarts and payouts? My Track has gone to a single file restart, which I hate with a passion. They say it gets the restart much faster, which it doesn't, and it makes for better racing, which it doesn't IMO. They also raised the price to get into the pits and now we don't even get our pit pass money back unless we finish 7th or higher.

$20 to get in pits minimum of $15 if you run a lap in feature.As for restarts they start us single file and can't pass on the bottom till we get to a cone about 100 feet before the flagstand.Kind of dumb I think.Last year I started in the back when they threw the green the man in front of me missed a gear so I went low to avoid hitting him and hit the cone while doing so.The next lap I was black flagged for hitting the cone!I told the official I was avoiding tearing up 2 cars is the reason I hit the cone.Well he laughed and put me to the rear!Next time the car in front will be picking cement out of they're grill!

Similar here. Single file restarts and cannot pass before a cone. So I wonder why do we have a start line if you can pass before the startline?

We have a guy here who just does what you're thinking about. Start of a race, first corner I'd lined the guy in fornt up so I could pass underneath(he's known to drift wide on 1 & 2). Part way thru one he lost it. I lifted off to keep out of his back end. The guy behind me didnt. Result a smashed in tail end. No rear bumper (pushed into the bodywork). Just be careful - the guy you plant may just be as innocent as you.

that is a good attitude to have,I'm sure you will make many friends that way,always remember "what goes around comes around"and you may need to practice "fisticuffs"a lot,cause you will be getting busted in the nose a lot!

$25 to get in. We have something they call a "Deleware Restart" where the leader gets the first row to himself and second place chooses inside or outside.If outside odd positions inside and if inside odd outside. First cone is where the leader starts the race, can't pass till second cone. Or, if the leader doesn't restart by the second cone the flagman starts it and its balls to the wall!
