Skip, would you please contact me. I don't believe I have gotten a call regarding this year's entries we have and to confirm all the information you have. Not much has changed. Just wanted to confirm all information you have.
Date: 3-10-2017
Author: Greg Brent
Kevin Bates I believe that answer would be "no" unless you are charging the Dwarfs $25.00 to make it. Thanks!!! Everything you make banners/ stickers/ wraps/ lettering are awesome so can't wait to see a trophy.

Thank You

Seems to me if you want a better count you should do what others have proven effective not these hokey rules. You have e to enforce the rules evenly. When fans and drivers see the officials give 2 cars that want to crash each other under yellow then give the cars thier spots back. Is maybe one reason your car counts are down. I have many instances of unfair or favoritism acts from the officials. Making one off rules and pissing drivers off don't make big car counts. Making a fun and fair and most important safe race facility you will get better car counts.

Skip NO ONE is complaining this is a debate over a new rule, OPINIONS not complaints are what you are reading. Last I checked that's what this page is partially for. . You would think opinions are welcome. Ryan I know it's not about plaques, my point was only 3 maybe 4 get 100% awards. I do like your Idea of 1 point makes it more fair. Word from the Confer team is they would like the throw out race to be a race you raced.

Skip, if you see no value in drivers providing feedback, then say so. We all want the track to keep running for decades. You're right, the track is a business and the purpose of a business, in my opinion, is nothing more than to make money, so I support that! My point is that, in my perspective as a drive, this will actually result in drivers showing up for less races over the year. It sounds like the issue you have with Dwarfs in particular is going to race out of town. If we put that aside and say someone has to go to a funeral, something sudden and completely out of their control. The driver loses the points they would have earned and go down 75 points to the people that make every race. If that's me, I have no chance at the championship so where is the incentive to try hard to make the rest of the season? If the purpose is to incentivize people to race as much as possible, don't take a chance at the championship away because of one missed race, regardless of the reason.

The 100% driver participation bonus points is for ALL divisions that race at Barona. Dwarfs have 15 points races this season = 75 not 80 points (weather permitting). Is it just me or is anyone else seeing only the dwarf drivers are complaining. 100% participation was started in 2012. Miss a race it is not 100% participation even if you throw out that race. Within each division most years you could count 100%ers on one hand (as Frank68 noted) and almost always finishing in position 8th or above, usually at the top.

(Continued) 2016 if we had bonus points dwarf positions 5 – 7 would have changed, Barona Mods 4 & 5 flip, Junior Sprints 4 & 5 flip and Mini Sportsman 4 & 5 flip. 2015 dwarfs 1 – 3 & 6 – 10 change, Street 4 – 6 change and Mini Dwarf Masters 2 thru 6 change. Most divisions WOULD NOT have changed at all if we had bonus points. Fast Track is in business to make money. Bonus points are an attempt to increase driver attendance – will it work – we’ll see. Also Fast Track cannot tell you where to race nor should they – that is your decision.
Date: 3-8-2017

(Continued) At the same time they do not have to support or reward you for racing at a competitors track – that is lost revenue to Fast Track. Greg you are 100% right – points and championships are and should be won on the track – the Barona Speedway track. Dwarfs have a throw out race each season where they throw out their lowest score, usually zero where you were not even here racing or at another track racing. Fast Track management I hope you are reading this – next year you should do this – Dwarfs want their throw out give it to them but their throw out must be a race they participated in at Barona Speedway – Barona points – not 0 points cause you had other plans or 0 points cause you race somewhere else. When I ask drivers why they race the answer is always cause it’s fun. Drivers if it ain’t fun anymore it’s time to hang up your helmet and drivers suit, sell your car and find another hobby. Enough said – time to move on. BOOM (sound of microphone hitting the floor).

Frank, we're not talking about a participation plaque, we are talking about some people getting 80 extra points at the end of the season. That's my struggle with it. Maybe if it were one point per race, 16 points total, at the end of the season it would make sense. And we voted on the throw out race at the meeting and had an overwhelming majority. I totally get where you guys are coming from and I see your point, I just disagree :) Looking forward to seeing you guys!

For the new 100% extra points rule, what if we only miss one race? Dwarfs have the drop of one.
Date: 3-7-2017
Author: Mike Menter
Is the bonus points for attending all races for the kids divisions also? Good idea!
Date: 3-7-2017
Author: Greg Brent
Frank I disagree 100 %, if everyone has one throw out its fair, now only the 100% will get 80 points that is equal to a main event win, I think points should be earned on the track. This isn't T Ball we don't need participation awards (points). This rule is not going to make people show up to the track, I think it's going to be the opposite, if you miss a race with the old point system you still had a chance, now at the end of the year the 100 % guys get 80 points added to their score just for showing up, isn't even going to make it close, so why show up if you miss a race. Points and Championships are won by on track performances I think it should stay that way, it would be embarrassing to win a championship because you gained 80 points at the end of the year even though the second place guy out pointed you,
As always just my opinion.

Calm down dwarfs usually only 2 or 3 drivers are awarded 100% participation plaques. I personally don't like "throwing out a race that does the reverse Ryan & Greg, it penalizes 100%ers by making them throw away points like us 2 years ago.

The car count last season varied drastically from race to race. This is an attempt to entice drivers to take part in every race of their division at Barona. The track "technically" has no obligation to WSDCA and can run point races all season.

I will be sponsoring a "Tailgunner Challenge" for every Barona Dwarf Points Main Event this season. The driver who is assigned to the pole starting position after main event pill draw can declare he will be starting at the rear of the field. If that driver then comes from the rear of the field and wins the race outright, I will award him $100 cash in addition to any other purse he or she has won. Driver must declare immediately after pill draw and must pass post-race tech inspection to qualify.

It seems to me if you make every race you would have earned more points than someone who doesn't show up for a race, why give them more points?? Hopefully you can clarify this for me,they already get a trophy for 100% participation now you want to give them an extra 80 points?

For the dwarf cars, a number of us go out of town for nationals. Technically, we are not supposed to have local races on the same day as nationals, but we don't do this of course. So if a driver wants to attend a national that is scheduled for the same day as a Barona race, he or she will be penalized with this 100% rule. Plus, the dwarf drivers voted to keep one throw out race for 2017, which won't work with this new rule. Can the dwarf cars vote on whether or not we want to participate with this?

Barona Speedway is going to slightly modify the 2017 points system. In order to encourage more 100% participation by drivers, we are going to award those who participate in ALL points races (must take a competitive lap to be considered !00%) within their division, 5 bonus points per race. You must race in every scheduled points race and the points will be awarded at the end of the season.
