We have a new tie-breaker procedure for Dash for Cash. In the past we drew cards for the first potential bye and split the money with the tied racers. Now we use your reaction time from your Dash for Cash run as the tie-breaker. We are not going to best package for dash for cash. This is only a tie breaker. Closest to the dial will still win dash unless it's a tie. For instance: If you and another racer both run dead on your dial with an 0 and you had an .009 reaction and they had an .020 reaction, you would win dash for cash. You would get the money and the 1st potential bye. The main reason to do this is for ties down the list that can be overlooked. This way all the ties will be settled when the list is printed. In the unlikely event that racers are tied with dial and reaction we will have to use a card draw.
We have a new procedure during time runs. To speed up the program during time runs when we have cars in one lane only we will be paring them up. The car at the head of the line will have lane choice and the car behind them will have the other lane. We know some will not like this but last week it would have saved us an hour of time. If you really have to have your lane I would suggest coming to staging as soon as your class is called.
These changes should help us get you guys home at a reasonable hour when we have big car counts or a lot of classes scheduled. Other changes may be required.
