Cars - (center) Mark Runtic (from left to right) Junior, George, Aja, Joey, Maj

It was an exciting day of racing. After running 3 qualifiers, awarding Maj with the TQ point and sorting out rest of field we ran the main...

Here is the Handicaps heading into the main...
Maj - 1 lap
Joey - 1 lap
Mark - 1 lap
Junior - 2 laps
Aja - 6 laps
George - 9 laps

It was the most fun ive had racing at Majs in a while... it was the first race ive ever ran in when everyone was battling for the first position.... with the handicaps in place it was anyones race...

Here are the results prior to the handicaps being put in place...
5 min main

1 - Mark 38 5:03.13 7.98 29 / 7.00
2 - Maj 38 5:03.66 7.99 2 / 7.08

5 - Aja 33 5:03.44 9.20 29 / 7.82
6 - George 28 5:05.54 10.91 13 / 8.98

After the dust settled and handicaps were applied a winner was crowned and he walked away with the first ever MHS Bracket Race Gift Certificate

what are the rules...what's the deal with bracket racing....

you must use the same car/body for all races.

try your best to get tq ....sandbaggers will be hacked, harrassed and heckled.....

based on your qualifying you will be given a handicap.
TQ gets one more lap....

No marshalls in the event of a crash (upside down car or one that left the track) the driver who is crashed yells STOP the race restarts on his command of GO once the car or cars are back on the track....REMEMBER this eats up lap time and the less we crash the more laps we get....
Any bump, tap, spinout or crash will cost you in the longrun....
Running clean means more laps....

The winner is the racer who has the most laps (main + handicap)
In the event of a tie the lowest race time wins....
Mark beat AJ today by milliseconds......

it was alot of fun... and Maj stated that the larger sat racing becomes the greater the gift certificates get and 1st through 3rd will receive one... cant wait for next sat.... i now realize you dont have to run your fastest car but your most consistent car... Mark won it with his 015...

Hey Maj this bracket race has brought alot of interest and questions... i think an offical rules sheet from you is needed...

i think what is needed is a general explanation of bracket racing, rules as far as what you can run, what is the lap cap on the main and so on.... what the winners will recieve... I think next sat is gonna be a big turnout and i think we need to be ready so everyone is on the same page...

the cool thing about bracket racing is the more people that show up the greater the gift certificate... and if enough show up Maj may be able to go first, second and third with the gift certificates... So lets all do what we can to make this happen as i can tell you first hand that when everyone is running their lead lap the racing is intense....
