My question is this is what it says in the rules
d) Breakout Rules:

A Bracket:
Any 2 laps .25 under qualifying time. Top 4 qualifiers are exempt.


B and C Brackets:
Any 2 laps 0.20 under their qualifying time.
Any car 0.25 under their qualifying time on the last lap will be scored in last place.

This was addressed about midseason and I would like to know if the rule for the A class is the same for the B

My point the tower said i broke out on my last lap but doing the math I didn't and no one will meet with me to discuss this. It looks like they will let certain people get away with things but not others

Ask for a print out of your lap times.

You were given a printout of your lap times that showed you broke out on two laps prior to your last lap. You already have your lap printout that shows your entire race lap times.

You were disqualified for the two laps during the race.....not the last lap.

This is just my opinion and the last time I looked you couldn't get in trouble for opinions:
When doing the rules for the pony stock in this case the rules for the B's should be the same as the A's with the exception to the top 4 times. I understand that much of it but the rest should be the same.

As a B car we work on our cars just as hard or harder then the A drivers and we should all be treated equally DO NOT MAKE SEPARATE RULES!!!! If the track wants to make separate rules for other classes that have B's & C's that is fine but from my understanding the pony stocks are suppose to be a STOCK CLASS.

This is something to think about for next year....

Something else to think about for next year. If a driver wins the feature in the B's the following week he would start the feature as the last place car, this would prevent "sand-bagging" no matter what he timed in at

Why punish someone to start at the back. Look at the qualifying times of the winner the past few weeks. They have had the same time each week.

This is the way it use to be when racing was real racing none of this high dollar stuff to make your car go faster. It makes the playing field equal and if the guy is a good driver it wouldn't matter where he started if he is that good he could get his car to the front without having it gave to him.

Until the rule book is followed 100% this is not the correct option.
