Anyone have details yet on how the races will be run? Will the cars be assigned on random draw? Same question on starting order. What will be the race lengths; will they refuel or will one tank be the limiting factor? I assume the cars will be different colors with numbers, but so far gray and orange are all we've seen.

They said races would be 90 minutes with a half-time break.
Unless she misses the truck race. If it only conflicts by an hr or two I wouldnt be surprised to see her on a jet.
Pocono/Eldora might be doable but from a 1pm race at Texas to an 8pm race at Stafford seems like a stretch.

So you need to sandbag heat 1 to make sure you get a good starting spot in the feature?

That does sound like it could be a problem similar to the land rush at the end of open qualifying sessions, doesn't it?

I suspect Tony will figure something out. Other series use similar formats.

I've watched it run that way for years at the local dirt track. Guys that start in the back have no problem going to the front and it is entertaining watching them work around the slower cars without wrecking. Sometimes that happens and they get tangled up. It's a good show IMO.

"IN THEORY", there won't be much disparity between the cars.

I started to post saying I didn't get why they would draw for both car and starting position. I wondered why they just didn't start in order of car numbers. Then I figured out that drawing for position would reduce the dominance of any one car that just happened to be mechanically superior. Try as they might, I expect there to be some inherent difference between the individual cars.

Another way to minimize the differences between cars would be to bring 15 cars every week and then draw 12 from that pool.

I wonder if they're all getting paid the same in the end, or are there are bonuses for race position and championship order? If they're all getting paid the same, there's little to gain from sandbagging.
