  1. lacksadaisical Actually Lackadaisical
  2. I got in. It's just a bit frustrating that I don't receive emails for some reason until after I have signed up for races (so I know they have my email and it works). I don't use facebook, and I operate multiple businesses so I don't spend much time watching youtube. Those are the methods of "publicizing" the registration opening. To be clear, I am not mad at all, just a bit confused about how I should proceed going forward to stay up on things. Either way, I registered for both of those races and am very excited! We are planning to run 4 races this year instead of our usual 2 or three. Should be fun if we can keep the car together. Add on info: I checked, I got the email about the election, my receipt for signing up for these races, and my pit assignment from Road America a couple weeks ago. Maybe I am just not on all of the mailing lists? I will email the boys in charge. Their communication has always been very good.
  3. I just registered for Indy and COTA. I am glad I randomly clicked on the entrant lists and noticed it was open. I almost missed Indy because of this last year. How the heck are we supposed to find out when registration opens if we don't check the forum every day? I don't get any emails. I don't have the ability to scan the forum daily in case something gets announced in a thread. What about the people who don't look at the forum at all? Do I need to request to be added to an email list? I have been a member for several years and participated in quite a few races.
  4. Also, what constitutes a "new" tire. 3 laps of scrubbing and it's used because no sticker?
  5. Sounds like maybe I am the ding dong here (not the first time). I thought 8+7 meant it was parc ferme overnight and technically one race. If it's two races and I misunderstood then I am very pleased with the schedule.
  6. We have run the chicane configuration for at least the 4 years I have been racing in champcar. I personally prefer it this way and don't see it changing. I think it actually adds a fun skill section and passing opportunities.
  7. I just looked over the 2020 schedule. It seems like everything is an 8+7. Is this the preferred format for most? Our team much prefers the two races per weekend setup. It allows a bad day to not ruin the whole weekend. This also has a significant affect on planning your schedule to run for the championship. Maybe I am reading into this more than I should and it's just a place holder until the formats are chosen?
  8. I might be in the minority, but I don't mind not running the kink. I would possibly say I prefer not to. It's such a penalizing corner to make a mistake and I don't think switching to the kink would increase car counts or the happiness of the competitors.
  9. We were running data at Indy. Good laps we were seeing 122-124 at the end of the front straight. That’s almost identical to what we see at road America.
  10. I am personally kind of in the opposite camp of some people here. I don't care what people spend on brakes as long as they keep working. Most of the cars in the series are perfectly fine on stock brakes with good lines, pads, and fluid. Feel free to go spend $5k on insanely expensive brakes, the limit for most of these cars is the contact patch.
  11. I don’t have an issue with any of it. I liked the setup at Indy. We don’t have sponsors that care what the results say.
  12. Saturday April 20th at road America ec cars finished 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 6th. i don’t have an opinion on this matter. The ec cars don’t bother me, just happened to remember the results when reading the thread.
  13. I meant to post a shout out as soon as we got home but totally forgot! These guys were a life saver to have at the track. We missed a bin while packing and didn't have any fluids with us. These guys not only had what we needed at the track, but had plenty of stock so we could load up. The far more impressive thing is that the prices weren't heavily inflated. The price of a quart of oil was about the same as autozone for what we buy and they even gave me a case discount! Thanks for being at the track guys. I hope it paid off for you and we will make sure to support you in the future. I highly encourage all teams to support the people who support us the most and are at the track with the things we really need in a pinch.
