    The man (the legend) that just posted before you has had Jason Line build his engines for the last 6 or 7 years (?), correct me if I'm wrong, Bucky.....and he has been very competitive the last few years at Indy.

    Westcott ran 8.22 at the Open at South Georgia in November, 2010. Gary Wolkwitz also held the record at 8.21 (set also at SGMP) in 2015.

    Funny thing is, though, trying to use those runs as a benchmark for where the index should be. If there had been comp cars present at those particular races, .8 under would've probably only been middle of the pack....

    Not judging, just the facts.

    Wescott ran a 8.38 & 8.39 at Indy in 2012.

    Wescott ran an 8.22 at Div 2 NO race in 2010
    Daniels ran an 8.28 at Reading in 2011
    Hard ran an 8.26 at the Dutch in 2012
    Wolkwitz ran an 8.31 at a Div 1 race in 2013
    Wolkwitz ran an 8.28 at the Dutch in 2014
    Wolkwitz ran an 8.21 at a Div. 1 race in 2015
    Hess ran an 8.28 at a Div. 1 race in 2016
    Daniels ran an 8.22 at the Gators in 2017
    Wolkwitz ran an 8.30 at the Gators in 2018

    *Edit - Middle of the pack at Gainesville in 2017 was -.72. Daniels would have been -.53 and would have qualified #15 of 18 cars.

    Eight tenths under would never be in the middle of the pack not even in mineshaft air. Maybe .65 under but never .8. That would always lead the pack. Comp is pretty much leveled out. Sixty five to seventy under will be your normal leader now days. Summer time it could be high fifties.

    Did some leg work back to 2009. This really shows just how comical the current index is.

    The problem with this chart is that is shows how comical the 9.10 proposed index would be also. That would be way too fast for a "new" Comp class by too many people.
