Hey Racers,

There are a number of people that have expressed interested in racing in the Sprucewood event on Sunday, but will not be able to make it during the day on Saturday to run Qualifying.

I know in some series, you must have a qualifying lap in order to race in a main, but I wanted to see what you think before I make a final decision.

I see this as being a win-win-win situation.
Win for the later racer because he gets to experience the racing and join the event
Win for you, because you will more competition to race with
Win for the charity because there will be more entries to help with the cause.

The question is, should someone be able to come in on Sunday and race without turning a qualifying lap on Saturday?

The event is for a charity so why not be charitable and let racers who can only attend Sunday race!

I think its a no brainer... If allowing a hand full of people the opertunity to run from the bottom up and that is going to secure more funds for the charity at hand all the power to them.

Agreed there is no issue opening lower mains to accomidate new comers on Sunday, and as mentioned it brings more funds for the charity.

I agree and disagree with both options... lol!

Totally agree for the reasons mentioned above, but disagree because it can cause chaos with RC Scoring Pro.... It's not always the most friendly program to work with.... maybe the newer versions do a better job of things like that though...
