I’ve been a proponent for 2 qualifying sessions and a 2 day race weekend. The issue, as stated by an NHRA official to me, was that they need the other days to be profitable. BTW, I’ve always attended Saturday. You see more cars, more action and back in the day you’d see a lot of drama/banzai runs for cars trying to get inNo , the NHRA and race tracks need ppl to attend the races. Cutting days is not gonna work for the bottom line.
I am intrigued by the idea... But the possibility of no one running Q2 in a 16 car field exists... can you say PROtest??the two day model should be tested. two runs to set the field will be awesome. driver must run 1 pass in each lane. 2 hours between Q sessions.
i think 4-6 races each year could be run like this. more if results are favorable.
Post of the thread. There is nothing left to discuss, big team, little team; it is the same 2 shots for everyone. It is even MORE of an advantage because the lower funded teams will have the 2 runs they maybe usually make and the big teams will not be able to have 2 sessions to 1 up them.Why wouldn’t it be fair?
As long as each team gets two qualifying attempts, there’s nothing to complain about.
