    I saw some pictures of the San Antonio track from a few weeks ago. It was terrible.
    There's no reason to go back there unless some major improvements are made.
    Unfortunately thats no going to happen unless the track gets a new owner.

    Im leaning towards this for 2021.
    Putting 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.

    Adding the Dallas National Event to the roster. Make the race worth 1 1/2 points.
    (Ashton's idea) This will be a required event!
    Allowing (1) D4 race to be missed so basically you would count your best 6 out of 7 or you would have 1 wavier.

    Give me your thoughts.

    Perfect! Agree with dumping 1 event. Especially in light of the San Antonio fiasco. Can’t wait!

    Roger, first off let me say, "You are the man!"

    I do think you need to shitcan Noble though as well! Last time I went there with both my comp cars and nearly crashed both of them. That was a couple years ago and I've heard it has gotten worse. When you put up $50k and its at the end of the year, people will gamble with their safety.

    So your D4 NHRA champion could be different than the Rodger Brogdon D4 champion?

    All sounds great! My problem is I am 1000+ miles to Houston and Bella Rose in the middle of winter.

    Roger, I'm thinking you might want this little low mileage one owner race car for a back-up. Glad you are coming back to Comp...

    I dont want that to happen so we will have to drop the National Event 1-1/2 points idea. If possible, I want the regular NHRA rules that determine the Divisional Championships to determine this Winner.
    I hope, with the amount of money on the line anyone running for the D4 Championship would compete in the required events.
    It would be a major disappointment for anyone to Win the Championship but not get the $50,000 Bonus because they didn't run the (RB) required number of events.
    Even if the event isn't going to end up counting towards your claimed points this program requires you to participate in the majority of the events.

    So by the rules, you only have to race three races within Div.4. Just saying
    But all of them would have to count.
