The OFFICIAL ChampCar Endurance Series National Championship Qualifiers

Recommended Posts

If they don't let you line up in the back, just pit on the first warm up lap, you don't even have to stop, by the time you get back on track, you'll be at the back.

I believe the Race Director already has that sorted. You guys just get the cars prepped, and get ready to race!

 

You just leave us be,  we will speculate, postulate, and sqwak about whatever we want too.   Whizzing in the breeze about starting order is at least as productive as discussing point values of xxx's.     😜

As for trophies at the Nat Champ

1st place overall is the main focus as always. Everyone else is a loser.

But class trophies will also be presented to said losers.

:)

Mike says that all 75 have a very good chance to win. 
I really don't understand math so I will go with what my boss says.

  • Completely unintentional, not on purpose, wrong part number. simple mistake, didn't mean it, the wrong engine was shipped to us, didn't realize it till it was too late, wrong engine size on the cam cover, the vin number matched up, hired new mechanic. But we put the wrong engine in our NCM Ford Focus.

This is all very exciting.

 

 

Edit: Also, how many millions of dollars does the winner get?

Your mechanic put the engine in 90 degrees wrong too. Now your car will be R(ight)WD too!

Yes. Contact Mike Chisek, I’m sure they have to do something funky in the system to accommodate certain teams and exclude others until mid-March.

I think more West Coast drivers should pool up and go, its just a few thousand miles away.

We plan on Daytona and leaving the car along with truck and trailer out that way to make the return trip easier.

What Pee Wee means is that is is easier to golf all the way back to California without dragging a trailer along <smile>

I guess that means he is going to leave it with me.  I'll take care of it for him, I won't do anything to his car to make it slower, he can trust me....

I am in favor of anything another team does or has done to them that involves slowing them down.
