I hear you loud and clear!

However, People wnated to have a night on the town and there is no way to help the schedule on Wednesday as people attending VOI will need to have the extra time for travel.

I would prefer to run Wednesday Night and go for the good weather but I am trying not to exclude anyone.

what do you think???

I can run wednesday Night but not sure on others?

David ..... a number of people in the Florida camp as well as other camps have asked if there is any way to back up the main event on Wednesday later in the day, maybe late morning(10:00-11:00) open gates, then test and tune. So that way we are running the main events in the evening, thus cooler and we will see lower times. Hopefully this would not be an issue because of the private rental and hopefully the owners of the track would understand and work with us.

The first day running during the the day on Pilots is helpful because we need Heat in the track to help get the VHT to stick to the Pilots.

I know in or camp the reason we are driving and trailering thousands of miles is to drag race. If we can get a few thousands off our times ...it is a very big deal to us. VIO is secondary to the drag racing and Casino's are thirdly(???) to drag racing. Although we would like to do all.

But if it was NOT FOR US COMING TO THE V-10 NATIONALS.... WE WOULD NOT BE COMING AT ALL.

I can not speak for any other of the camps only for the Florida's camp.

well put ward. i can speak for the Ohio camp (since im usually the entire damn camp /images/graemlins/toothy ) and I agree.

drag racing is first
everytrhing else is second

if backing the event up so as to take advantage of possibly cooler temps is doable, lets do it. if you need any help in doing this im sure youd not have a lack of help; myself and everyone else who takes the v10 nats seriously would help in a seocnds notice.

plus, on a side note; itd be better if we did do the finals at night so wards tears of defeat by the mighty V10 MOJO would be less discernable /images/graemlins/toothy /images/graemlins/drive

What about flip flopping the racing, doing the big racing tuesday night and then street tire racing Wednesday day, so that those that are going to VOI can saddle up and leave before dark????

might be hard to back up the times only because some need to leave to get to the VOI and set up booths etc.
I know that you mentioned the VOI but still put in my 2 nickles

I vote for this and it will help the VOI vender's with needed time to set up a booth.

The only issue w/ the main event on Tues is that it means we don't get tues as a practice day. I don't know about most of y'all, but I don't get much practice and would welcome a full day of relatively low-keyed test & tune w/ the street tire thing and the drag radial thing both being that day. Main event should definitely be the last day, in my opinion, even if it means running during the day and not in the evening.

Also, those who are driving through the night to get there for Tue (let us not forget that Monday is labor day and some of us have 2 day trips to get there) could use a day of low-keyed racing.

Just my .02...

i think too many are forgetting what we're going to shreveport for; DRAG RACING. if it interferes with your family time, casino time, VOI time or any other time than perhaps you shouldnt be coming. I am not intending to be offensive here but damn, lets just use these two days to our fullest advantage and get the best damn times we can get outta this track during those two days (and evenings) if time permits.

i myself normally race at least once per week, however ive not had the car out of the garage since National trails raceway three weeks ago and ive made some performance changes, so im definitely going to want to practice and do some quality T&T
