I think VonC was wishing his bread wasn't gluten free this morning. Add more yeast to the beast.

Good job by Drago...I think y'all are being a little optimistic. I'd venture to say your winner is coming from the top 3 today (pre-scales).

Full disclosure: SMAC chairman, my opinions do not reflect anything to do with the SMAC unless specifically stated.

Today's slower times were a result of a combination of different air, slight headwind, and green track. Congrats to Drago for doing it on his own. Tom and I switched cars to see if it would be any better and it wasnt. So we are going back to our original cars, and are giving up our times. So we are at the back for Q3.

Weather is changing by the minute. Forecasts are changing by the 1/2 hour. Lots of surprises still ahead.

Charbonneau, Coello and someone else ??? pulled into tech for underweight in Q2. Not sure of the outcome.

Top 6 engines were sealed - ie components were painted including
  • intake
  • Exhaust
  • head
  • ECU
  • throttle body
  • etc.
Q2 provisional results

What would be the point since changing these parts is not illegal and does not void any qualification times? What are they saying the penalty would be for changing out a "sealed" part and on what grounds?

I understand the objective, but question the enforcment if challenged by a competitor to the court. Or at least they should allow inspection of the changed part for compliance if an entrant needs to make a change and not lose their times.

Personally, they should just have pulled the manifolds, TB, ECU, etc in tech for compliance in my opinion. It's the big show, two years ago I spent over 2 hours in tech after qualifying. It's part of the deal, bring your tools.

BTW Danny, good luck at the show and thanks for the updates from the track.

James
This is correct. Anything can be changed, but if canged it needs to be chamged in tech and what you took off is inspected. You only lose times if the parts are non compliant or if the seals have been tampered with.

Last night Alex Balanos, Jeff Labounty,Andrew Charnbonneau, Andrews mom and myself had extensive study session about the line, track conditions and qualifying philosophy into the wee hours... :cheers: I expect we all benefited and should all go faster today. Maybe getting in the car will get rid of this head ache any way. :blink:

Rule is same as last year. Track fuel, 93 octane no lead oxygenated, is required. Last year the rate was about $5/gal if I remember.

After the Sprints backlash, I hope they didn't attempt a $7+/gal charge for this year's Runoffs.

The times are quicker today, weather was cooler and the track more rubber. The top ten remains pretty consistent with some small shuffling and a couple of new faces in. The "new Boss" holds onto the top spot again today.

Bolanos has no choice but to go out, his front bumper is chained to Andrew's rear bumper. :spank:

I predict the podium is exactly like qualifying. Can we just skip the rest of this tire torture test and award the trophies already? :bigsquaregrin:
