My thoughts in writing that petition were to make the Championship more meaningful. My first thought was that it should be harder to qualify, and I thought that it should take 4 or 5 races to qualify. Then after kicking it around awhile that seemed like to many races for a grassroots series, I didn't want to turn it into something that a lot of teams just couldn't afford to do. So I proposed 3 races, that means a team has to at least commit 2 weekends to the series to be crowned Champions. I never really felt that it should all be based on points, its not taking in enough races to be a points championship, and a true points championship in this sort of series would turn into a participation award for the teams that could afford to do the most races.
If more of the best teams are motivated to be at the race, with a chance to win the biggest bestest trophy ever and get interviewed on live YouTube by a Super Awesome commentator...or Bill, well it will be a truly Epic race. As it is now its pretty epic just not TRULY EPIC. Right now 75 are qualified and realistically 10 have a chance to be Champion.
