Does anyone run with rules where after a certain number of wins your reguired to add weight. For example after 3 feature wins your required to add 100LBS and an additional 50 LBS for each additional wins. What does everyone think about a rule like that and who runs with a similar rule.

Our track has thought about this rule but have not done it yet . In my opion if some one was is winning to much (IF THAT IS POSSIBLE) the track is not teching enough ,if the guy is cheating , or his fellow racers need to do their home work and get faster. We won 10 features in 2004 and the points at our track , this year we won 4 features and the points .Our track tells us we need to move up . Our 4cylinder class is going to require the points champion to move up to the next class this year.

That has got to be stupidest rule I have every heard of. Punish the guy that is doing his homework and has some talent? The natural progression would be that your good cars would eventually be as heavy as tanks. I'd had to find another track to race at.

That is a crazy rule you win so much you gotta move up. Are they going to buy your new car to move up? What if you can't afford to move up?

At our track, they tear your motor down after your third feature win. To make you move up a class, is a crock.

Sports car road racing is where this came from. The all wheel drive Audi Quatro was realling stinking up their shows when it came out.

Steve your track rules is actually where this idea has came from however it was taken out of the current years rules. Do you know if the rule stated 3 wins in a row or just 3 wins anytime during the year?

I think it said three in a row but dont qoute me on that. Yea we think that kinda of rule is stupid they already reverse the field do to points as how you start so if you are good enough to work your way to the front every week you shouldnt be punished for being a good driver and having a good car. People cum to see good racing and a guy coming from the back and winning every week is giving them just what they come to see dont you think. Steve
