    #4 - YES!!! I love the qualifying off the handicap tree. Makes it much more enjoyable.

    100% agree with John Green!

    #4..the last thing NHRA should be concerned about is a doorcar on the brake at over 200 mph

    The one thing about presenting this to Nhra is there going to be doing what’s best for the class and some are going to be for personal indexes so the only way to keep personal indexes with this format would be to wipe the slate clean and start personal indexes over!

    When you are talking about taking .1 away from all indexes and eliminating the PI, you are giving a lot of index back to a lot of people and in the same token taking index away from those that protected their index. This is not the way to go.


    Art’s idea is much better overall for the PI deal. It encourages participation and encourages travel. Tracks are happy, NHRA happy, racer happy, parts supplier happy. Win/Win deal.


    Changing index’s to benefit some and hurt others is not a win/win situation. If you are going to do that, do it in 2022 after everyone has a chance to beat up on their index.


    The other issue’s make the SHOW better. Handicap qualifying makes a better show, All out after red lights is a better show. More cars is a better show.


    There are a lot of PI naysayers on here, I understand, but, I still don’t understand how PI keeps anyone from racing? You will come to race if your class index is x.42, but, not if your PI is x.42 That doesn’t make any sense.


    #4 has universal support so far!!

    PI keeps people from racing by two people with the same letters on their hood scoop and the faster et is not faster on the qualifying sheet. On top of that if racer X has a personal of ten and raced F has no personal and they both race me I have a better chance of beating racer X that is down a tenth even though that poor bastard runs a quicker et. Pretty easy to understand. Clark Smiley

    I would like to see personal indexes stay. The personal index is what kept us racing comp. I know some aren’t for it, but I like being in control of your own index. It’s not perfect but it works.
