Event Planning underway....

FIRST ...not to open a can of worms...But I -You-Us have got to trim the Sunday Schedule...Wayne is 'kinda " open to at least go to one time trial for Sunday only arrivals . Move some dead baggage Eliminators again...Sorry but we only had 4 in the 409 Elim..... Dover new "originals" had only 13 cars.....Most didn't pre-enter if they even saw the instructions....and we already trimmed Comp & the Bikes. DOT was new this year but not that good for participation or fans. Also some Groups will be either put into Saturdays schedule or possably eliminated. I expect good -bad & silly responses...But my daddy always said,"The more ideas you come up with ,the higher percentage of good ones will appear".SO ...let me have it.One Idea is to Run first rounds on Sat...That would Mean "IF" your gonna run on Sunday,you have to run on Sat Too. Its Three days now ! ...No Sunday only commandos. Exact Date coming 'very' soon.

Many have said Go Back to Pre-76. The year Dover Closed...That eliminates 77-78-79-& 80 cars. Need some feedback on this from those that would be put out...Was that way(Pre-76) up to 9th annual ..Only added up to 80 this year for 10th.
