At the Doorslammers race in orlando, for Pro stock,1st round of eliminations, they did a chip draw for lane choice and run pairs. Then after 1st round they were put on a ladder. They said the drivers loved it, not sure about that. I think this would be a better option for Comp than the sportsman ladder. This idea does a couple things, 1st, it accomplishes what the sportsman ladder is supposed to do, which gives the lower qualified cars the same chance in the 1st round as the higher qualified cars. I think there was a number 13 versus 16 1st round race. out of 16 entries. 2nd it made the prostock teams to set their cars on kill because they had no idea who they were going to run 1st round. 3rd it took away the game of playing the ladder to get a easy 1st round opponent or racing a teammate. (Considering Erica lost to Troy JR in her 1st round pairng, both in ELite Camaro,s ). 4th, it also takes picking the better lane for eliminations out of the equation. And as another note, I read Factory stock Shootout has gone to a Pro ladder.
