Subject: Gaylen, is it possible to have an open discussion about the TOPMA rules openly here? The reason I ask is much like yourself we work hard to provide for our families and the ability to race without sponsorship and feel that the 2 race drop rule which has been in effect since at least 2003 that I know of is a good rule. It affords someone the opportunity to attend a wedding, a funeral or even the time to make major repairs to their car in the event something happens. We will be racing for the TOPMA championship next year as well and don't want to see a rule change at the last minute.

  • Explain how subtracting earned points gives anyone an advantage? perfect attendance gets you 20 points, miss 1 that's 10, miss 2 that's 5. So you miss 2 races, get 5 and drop 0...make all the races get 20 for attendance and DNQ at 2 races so drop 22. You netted -2 and the guy who missed 2 nets 5 points. Bad math, strategically you either dominate or it behooves you not do well or miss 2 races. Doesn't benefit anyone in a close points race. My opinion only, and I'll voice it in any forum with anyone. I'd like to see it done away with period, maybe someone can explain how it's beneficial. (NT) -- Eric, 11:39:03 10/17/15 Sat
