Why can't CCS have more purse races and run qualifying?

I think there needs to be more money races in all the classes with CCS. I also don't agree with being gridded by your date of entry. There should be some sort of qualifying. Have qualifying be your practice times. If you run the fastest times in practice, you get gridded at the front. I think it's horse shit some slow fuck is gridded at the front because he preregistered 2 months before the race weekend. I'm not saying I've never been that slow fuck but I still don't agree.

CCS should run it more like a flat track event is run. Heats or qualifying should be the equivilant of our practice time and for Christ sake put some money out there to be won. It'll make it more interesting and more competitive.

because they would not make as much money. They try to fit 50 races in on one day.

Nick.. I think you already know why things are the way they are. Gridding by entry is retarded but they award the loyal customers. You want to qualify and race for a purse? There's always ASRA,USGPRU, and the AMA.

trust me it has been an on going debate for as long as I have been a CCS racer. At least Wera rewards you and does it by points you have per class.
