i wish they could so something similar to f1 but it wouldn't work for twice as many cars on tracks less than half as long. australian supercars also uses the 3 round qualifying but they also have fewer cars and longer tracks.

F1 has always had group qualifying. It used to be an hour-long single session where for the first 20 minutes the only cars that would come out were a couple no-hopers. ("IT COULD RAIN!")

Quote :
""NASCAR remains adamantly opposed to a return to single-car qualifying.

“One of the things we wanted to hold true to is not to go back to single-car qualifying,” [NASCAR Senior Vice President of Competition Scott] Miller said. “Single-car qualifying is two things – it’s boring and it’s expensive. It also doesn’t create a good show.”""


I guess in a month they were unable to come up with a good solution that the racers wouldn't just game to do the same thing.

If they want qualifying to create a good show, make up more fuckass weird rules. Have 2 seater cars where a crew member turns a lap and the driver turns a lap. Or make the crew chief run from one end of pit road to the other with a beer helmet on and the car cant turn a lap till the run and beer is finished. I mean...if its about the show now and not the racing, then lets make it a real fucking show WWE style

I know what he meant. It's irrelevant. They passed inspection.

Just pointing out how funny that in the last 10 laps the only two cars that could stay within 10 seconds of each other were the 2 that failed inspection before the race

I'm just pointing out that they also passed inspection before the race. Folks read into this inspection bullshit too much. Everyone is pushing the limits. If I was a team owner, I would doubt my engineers if my car never failed a pre-race inspection.

I guess I just like the limit-pushing and flat out cheating aspect of motorsports. Everyone else wants to see some IROC lameness.

Cooper Webb took 3rd Saturday night in Las Vegas and clinched the Supercross 450 title.

He was at the press conference, and someone asked him if he was concerned about bungling it like the rider in the race before him did. Adam Cianciarulo was the points leader and running 3rd when with a few minutes to go he got sideways off a jump, wrecked, and bent his bike frame to the point he couldn't go fast anymore. Wound up finishing 20th and lost the 250 West title. Webb has always had a brashness to him and replied, "No. He cracked. I didn't."

Alonso may have problems qualifying for Indy. He crashed Wednesday, they had to go to the backup, and are struggling for speed.

^^yeah, that's usually how it goes. Open is exciting and the all star race blows. The last stage put me to sleep.

The cars are nearly impossible to wreck. They really need to work on the aero package and unglue them from the track.

Restarts are definitely crazy, but it isn't worth it.

Was at Indianapolis yesterday.

Alonso, McLaren...just wow.

(The car that bumped him out at the last was a small effort that lost their sponsor a week ago.)

No steering wheel, wrong tire sensors, bad metric conversion, wrong gear ratios, just wow
