TWO RELATIVELY EASY AND COSMETIC CHANGES I PROPOSE: ONE: When I try to explain Comp to even other NHRA class racers.. they always glaze over when I try to explain our "go more than .51 under your index... blah blah blah". It would make ABSOLUTELY NO CHANGE to the current racing, but I would propose we change the indexes and CIC hits to make it easier for everyone to understand. Subtract .5 sec from everyone's index AND make the CIC anything faster than your index. My example: OLD: Andrew Holt I/D Index 7.17 --> At 6.67 (.50 under) Im clean. At 6.66 (.51 under) I take .01 CIC. NEW: Andrew Holt I/D Index 6.67 --> At 6.67 (Even with Index) Im clean. At 6.66 (.01 under) I take .01 CIC. PRO: Much easier math. Much easier to explain. Much easier to announce. Much easier for anyone who doesn't race Comp to understand what the hell we are talking about. CON: Nhra has to adjust index. Comp racers have come to a consensus to change something cosmetic that has been the same for a long time. TWO: After the above change, have the scoreboard read the ET ran, and the amount under ran on the scoreboard. From my perspective, MPH is a number that is irrelevant in Comp eliminations. With these two changes, anyone could watch a race from the stands, and quickly get explained what is going on... who won a race.. and more importantly why (was someone dead late...).. and what are the ramifications (did he/she blast his index..etc). I think taking the unnecessary complicated part of Comp out of Comp is one small piece of the puzzle to get fans/other racers more interested in it. If there is enough people who either think its a good idea, or at the very least don't care one way or the other (It wont change anything about the on track racing... Its a zero sum change)... I would propose this to my D3 rep to have it debated as a change.
