    Since most of us have some unwanted free time lets discuss 2021.

    Im working on some ideas for 2021.
    Since Im racing Comp in 2021 I thought I should come up with something.

    Im thinking if we paid most of the $$$ for the top 5 finishers in the division we might increase the participation even more. But still pay something for each event.

    But add some twist.
    How about:
    Participants would have to run all D4 Events to be eligible.
    All races would count. Not just the best ones.
    Your worst race would count double points.
    The last race would be points and a half.

    Tell me what you think.

    PAYOUT IDEAS:
    For each event:
    $1000 Winner
    $ 500 Runner Up
    $250 Semis.

    D4 Championship:
    $50K D4 Comp Champion
    $25K Runner Up
    $10K 3rd
    $10K 4th
    $5K 5th

    Roger, it would take a Philadelphia lawyer to keep up with all that. I though it worked pretty well the way it was last year.

    It wouldn't be that complicated.

    Roger,
    Remember that’s Raymond you have to speak a little slower. Since he won the division 4 championship this year he can’t hear or maybe a little slow on reading.Ok there are not to many better than Raymond. Lol I think that is good just appreciate the efforts you put in. We are in and thank you again.

    Im not sure our old-ass gas motorhome could make it down there from Ohio.. But we may even brave it for purses like that. A great purse for a race will definitely get people pumped up... and that's a great thing for Comp in general. Excellent ideas and effort!

    how about this idea. this might be something to get a regular consistent turn out.
    put all the money towards the D4 Championship and Top 10.
    $50,000 D4 Champ
    $25,000 Runner Up
    $17,500 3rd Place
    $15,000 4th Place
    $12,500 5th Place
    $10,000 each 6th through 10th.

    Looks like Im for sure racing d4 next year!! I like this idea, I’d say it gives a little more incentive to get people to make all d4 lodrs events, vs getting a decent payout at one event. For me and my pops from Minnesota we would definitely make all the races at a shot for 50k, hell even a chance at the 10k would be awesome for us

    I was going to bring my engine to Jim but he doesn't allow a Toyota near his shop.

    Your idea is AWESOME! Your contribution is AMAZING!

    My only suggestion,

    Add the Dallas National to the roster. Make it the race worth 1 1/2 points. Much more publicity and spectators present. Big event atmosphere. Imagine if the championship comes down to Sunday in Ennis! That would be EPIC!

    I'm all in and look forward to the intense competition in 2021 Div 4

    I like it!! Brings a little more excitement to the last race and helps out with car counts for d4. If Nhra could get involved somehow in promoting it at the Dallas event it could not only help you out but help out with comp as far as reaching some more fans. Bob unkafer did a great job last year at making sure you and rbr machine was mentioned throughout the lodrs events hopefully the Nhra guys will do the same

    Hats off to Rodger Brogdon!

    Does D4 have Warren Evans broadcasting at divisionals as Division 1 and 3 do ? Hope so as I will definitely want to have that broadcasting in the shop and watch some comp racing! Alot of people said comp racings biggest problem is payout. No longer that problem in division 4. This is going to be good
