i expect to be more competitive as last weeks track was very tight.

2. We have changed the schedule to do all night race. Do you prefer night or day races? Do you like the change?

all night races, most dirt races are held at night!
3. What is your favorite dirt car and why?
Probably these 360 sprints, fast enough to need skill but not too fast to where you just hold on for life.

well with a few changes to the restart I think it will help with the congestion at the front. this week I am hoping to be closer to the front but we will see

2. We have changed the schedule to do all night race. Do you prefer night or day races? Do you like the change?

99 percent of the sprint races are at night so great change

3. What is your favorite dirt car and why?


Super late model

To have a better finish and race clean

2. We have changed the schedule to do all night race. Do you prefer night or day races? Do you like the change?

Night races for the dirt series 100%

3. What is your favorite dirt car and why?

Most of the dirt races I do are these 360 cars so they're my favorite

On another note, I've ran some laps with the baseline setup and it seems like a much more balanced setup than last weeks.

To go fly over the fence while on fire

2. We have changed the schedule to do all night race. Do you prefer night or day races? Do you like the change?

For dirt, I prefer night because that is main event dirt racing time!!! As for driving, I am nowhere near good enough to be able to tell a difference handling wise to have an opinion.

3. What is your favorite dirt car and why?

Not enough experience to answer this really, but as a spectator, Sprints are the best.

I have never driven this track. I actually just downloaded it and am going to do some testing for it. 

2. We have changed the schedule to do all night race. Do you prefer night or day races? Do you like the change?
Yes. Dirt racing belongs at night. I prefer night races except for road courses, which we don't run at night anyway - however a lot of sports car series do. 

3. What is your favorite dirt car and why?
Easily the 305/360/410 winged sprints. I feel like I can control these better, but late models are a close second.

Im still gonna sling dirt at everyone in the stands.

2. We have changed the schedule to do all night race. Do you prefer night or day races? Do you like the change?
Yes. As everyone says most all sprint car races these days are at night. Maybe when the Silver Crown cars(for dirt) come out then day races would be more a thing.

3. What is your favorite dirt car and why?
Midgets and Modifieds

no worries John. We all know it's a test season and still had a great time. We've all been in races where everyone is cussing each other etc... Even though it was rough going tonight everyone seemed to be laughing it up.

Check the settings to see if you can set x amount of cars to start the A main. Im not sure but I think you can set it to have 20 cars start the feature. Maybe others can chime in on that one.

Brenden was doing donuts on his side after sending it like it was Carb Cup, Lulz were had, and we came up with a few good ideas moving forward. Good times I say.

No worries, still had a good time. 

I'd say for sure start with 40 lap features since it's a given probably 15 laps will be run under caution. Should be fun weeks ahead. Sent out some invites to quite a few people last night.

I apologize again to anybody whose race I ruined. I'm still not sure what happened. I was turned towards my dog with my feet 2 feet from the pedals and I turned back around and saw my car trying to drive over 4th place. Nothing I did let the throttle off until I hit ctrl-alt-det. I think I have a new signature winners' move if I ever win one of these: On your side donuts!

I think that is really up for discussion right now. It really depends how many are interested. We could always add in a B Main. I just think for these tracks, 25 is the max we in a single race.

All, I apologize for the glitch Monday night for having the wrong setup in there. The Beta UI takes a little getting used to with heat racing. It doesn't like to save settings at all.

Ideally I would love to eventually see a B-Main in the future, but for this type of deal with what seemed like a lot of people running dirt for the first time, might be best to cap it where everybody makes the show in order to get laps.

And if anybody needs any help, I'd say reach out to me or AJ and we can help out if needed as well.

I agree with you billy I think we need to cap it at 28 and make heats a pack of 7 so it would be 4 heats and then the feature. I am gonna talk to trevor and Jerome and get there feed back
