    There was a discussion in Dallas about these two runs. Is their any index adjustment for going this quick in qualifying? I can’t find anything....

    It is my understanding that no adjustment is made during qualifying. Only adjustment made would be if he took CIC during eliminations. I know several Pro Mod guys have gone crazy fast and no adjustment was made. I could be wrong!

    There is a section of the CIC rules on NHRARacer.com that lists the process for a year-end index reduction. This happens when there are 2 entries (quickest run at a single event) that run 0.760+ under in a year. However, runs made at mineshaft events do not count, and since one of the races listed was mineshaft, I do not believe there will be an index reduction. If that race hadn't been mineshaft, H/EA would be in for a massive index hit at the end of the year.

    That clause in the cic rules was made soon after the class was changed to index racing. With personal indexes that clause will not work. A few classes in past years fit the clause but nothing was done. AA/PM was one last year.
    the reason it can't work with personals: Let say a B/DA runs 76 under twice in a year well you would take 6 off the index but it would not effect the drivers that are already 6 or more down in the class only the ones that are trying to get there. So if Troy runs 66 under twice in a year, Adam Hickey and Jason Hutto would be hurt because Troy is down ten.
    NHRA would have to look at class as a whole. We all know that AA/PM can run a second under. In St.Louis the first nine drivers I believe were between .90 and 1.00 under. The Hemi index is to hard and the FS cars gets pulley changes when they run too quick.
