    I don't care what the weather was, 77 under in D/SMA is impressive. And congrats to the Aragonas for getting their car into the sevens.

    Brian, there has to be a minimum 17 cars attempting to qualify. Once that criteria has been met, then more than half the cars have to qualify 61+ under or better. (17 in a 32 car field) 27 cars so far in qualifying means if the top 14 are 61 or more under then the mineshaft rule kicks in. If a 28th car were to make a run then 15 cars would have to go 61 or more under for the it to happen.

    18 of 27 are more than 61 under-no index hits until 66 under-8 cars so far have qualified that far under, but weather for tomorrow in mid 70s and lower 80s on Sunday.

    Short, but tough field in Charlotte. Hard to pick a winner out of that group, especially with that 4 cyl car sitting towards the back of the field.

    Q3 is cancelled-given where teams are qualified, I like Rampy's and Bruno's chances-good cars, good drivers, and least likely to take CIC in first round.

    The politics of Comp are truly out of control , build a -70 under car , but you must drill the tree to save that index , going red with a -70 under car is the new norm.......but you saved that index , above all , you saved the index.

    It's not racing , it's political......it's BS.

    unrelated but

    ...saw where someone redlighted, and might could have won, but didn't, it's easy to read round wins on my part, and see a red and go, wow, dude, if you had chilled on the tree, maybe you might have won, but, there is none of this, after the fact stuff, ya live and die on the tree, but when there was so many under their indexes, I was wondering what might happen, lol...and coming from me, just a fan, well well well

    I think the key is to be consistent and try to cut the same ligbt every time, no matter who is in the other lane. Once a driver figures that out, then you can go to work on the car to either figure out how to speed up or slow down the reaction time. I can remember Al telling Lee wben he came to drive for us that being in the. 025-.040 range would be a goal to have. Needless to say, Al and Lee worked together to get the car to do what Lee wanted. Kyle and Steve Cultrera have worked with Al to do the same. Of course to say you want to do this and then doing it are two different things, which is why I have a lot of respect for Al as a driver, plus all the guys who have driven for me.
