    Default 2015 World Finals

    Just spoke to Ken Dollar, World Finals in Phoenix this year will no longer be a 4 day event. Friday test and tune until noon, then 1st round qualifying. Then 2 rounds qualifying on saturday, then eliminations sunday...

    I know i have always looked forward to the 4 day event. One full day of test and tune and two full days of qualifying. I hope they change their mind.

    I agree, i always loved the 4 day event. Its a blast. With that being said, What in the hell is ken thinking? This cutting test n tune day in half/ completely out is bull crap. Havasu has no test n tune as well. How are we as competitors suppose to help put on an awesome show if we only get 2 or 3 shots at the track for qualifying????

    It's supposed to be the "next level"... LOL. Nobody said it would be the next level up.... Was thinking of running havasu until I saw it was only a 2 day event.. No thanks. All we do is watch the wind blow there anyways.

    That does suck, its the WORLD FINALS !!!!! Should have kept it a 4 day event, maybe if yal bitch enough they'll fix it ... Just like Wheatlands June race, 2 day event, Qualify on Friday and race on Saturday, not really sure whats up with that .. Augusta is a full 3 day deal and the last Wheatland race is a full 3 day deal ..


    Anyways, I'll be there with the 405

    personally, I could care less about test and tune. just give us 4 qualifying laps. if you've been racing all year and still can't figure out how to set the thing up to run near a number, well, a couple more laps ain't gonna help much. I can remember paying 150 for the full day t&t at the wf's, and making 2 laps. because the staging lane lines were almost back to the goodyear bridge all day. wait in the staging lanes for 2+ hours, then another half to 3/4 hour on the rope, just to run what I thought I'd run, is a little bit ridiculous.

    all this t&t, Friday, Saturday, sunday, is like kindergarten class. man up a little bit. just run 4 qualifiers, and get it on. is what it is, and it's -supposed- to be racing.

    just a little retrospective. at SITC, there was NO test and tune. and there was no other orgs running a 1000', or approximately 1000' course, when it was going strong. so you had to have some vague idea and plan to try and qualify. you got 2 qualifiers on Friday, 2 on Saturday, and if you were good enough or lucky enough, out of 30+ boats you might make the 16 boat field for sunday eliminations. and the cutoff for most of those classes was usually in the 0.06 range. this was man up racing, not pussified t&t all weekend racing.

    for years and years, we always got a minimum 4 qualifying rounds at the wf's. always. even the time or times we ran first round eliminations Saturday afternoon we got 4 qualifying rounds. if you kept the frikken pro boats out of there, it would be easy to get 2 full rounds of sportsmen qualifying on Friday morning, before any of those guys woke up. easy.
