Runoffs qualifying changes after last years disaster.. this should work I guess
Jim

Just a quick note to every one headed to the Runoffs. I was reviewing the supps, since they were updated this week, and noticed this tidbit about out laps for qualifying. It is a little different than what you may encounter at regular season events. Yellow until T10, then they will display a green. So I guess they don't want any passing of the slow, weaving cars to get heat into tires and brakes before that point.

5.17. Out Lap/Pace Lap Procedures:
5.17.1. Qualifying: For all qualifying sessions, the course will be Full Course Yellow on the out lap until Turn 10. Cars going
considerably slower and holding up other cars may be subject to penalty. The Turn 10 flag station will display a green flag
on the qualifying out lap to indicate the start of green course conditions. The full course will be green once the lead car
passes start/finish. Scrubbing tires and impeding the progress of other drivers after Turn 10 on the out lap is considered
blocking.

Except races, all sessions start the clock when the first car is released from grid.

For races.  Not for practice/qual.

So...maximum of 15 minute qualifying for about 45 cars on a 2.6 mile track...60 cars on Thursday (7-8 hot laps?).  For anyone near the back of those groups...prolly 13-14 minutes (6-7 hot laps?).  Looking back, that's similar to 2017...except there were 4 days of Qualifying.

 

Anyway, Runoffs is fun.  Can't wait.
