if alky wasn't outlawed from most of the Racing Programs around here i think you would see 65% of the racers using it. But somehow they are outlawed and only can use race gas.

For $130/drum versus $620/drum for C16.......

Cooler air temps, can run a Turbo without intercooler, ect ect How could you go wrong!

Sounds like big corporate sponsership (Vp) has those series in their back pockets. for me, be a good reason NOT to run in one and go outlaw.

What a crock.

The racers are the ones getting the screw while the big corp(s) rake the benefits, that is unless you win every weekend.
But that's the whole point right?

Same reason #1 runs #16 1st round elims - another crock.

That's that way in anything....High school sports even. They do that to prevent the best two guys from meeting up early and eliminating one of them, allowing a worse team to advance leaving the better team eliminated.
