The economy has had a drastic toll on recreational sports and particularly boat drag racing.
When the various clubs tried to seek a universal membership and class to race, the half second brackets took a huge dis-connect and were virtually eliminated from the sport.
Brackets were / are the back bone for the NJBA and should be re-instated.
The 10.5, 9.5, 8.5 brackets will improve boat count drastically and that would have a direct effect on registration fees and possible a purse sense the NJBA is non-profit.
This thing about five boat in any one area before a trophy / awards is issued is not what the NJBA was about; the NJBA was a place for the guy who didnít approve of the 7.70 rules and liked the half second brackets.
Would you return to boat racing if the NJBA re-instated the ďbrackets with the half secondsĒ, and a two boat requirement to receive an award?
The half second brackets would no-longer require categoryís like the ďcatch allĒ Super Eliminator.
What do you suggest to improve the boat count that's reasonable?
Please donít respond to this thread if you have never boat raced with a professional organization like the NJBA, CDBA Lucas, ADBA, etc.
