    Keep acting like one I'll keep calling you one. Act like a normal person with actual questions and I'll treat you as a normal person and answer them. It's really a simple thing to do.

    Oh actually if the Vintage stuff doesn't happen I am damn sure staying home. That's the only reason to go to that godforsaken place. I have the absolute worst luck there. AND it's a 9 hour drive.

    Steve you figured out what it was yet?

    I am pretty sure it is a jetting problem. JD thinks it may be as simple as going from the 93 octane to the 110 octane. I bought jets today.

    Ahhhh gotcha. I did the same. Jetting was pretty good but would need smaller ones for when it heats up. According to the WEGO I was running like a 12:1 A/F ratio at the top.

    What? Did somebody say something? I was busy and had to run out to go get more Simple Green, WD-40, and Zymol wax. :D

    Summit Point DH

    Well, not everybody has gotten the final word yet. We had one Vintage champion show up at the first Summit Double Header expecting to race last weekend. I headed him off before he payed the entry fee, so he got to keep his money in exchange for his disappointment. :(

    I wonder how many riders will show up at the AHRMA Barber event expecting to post-enter?

    Man, thats a bummer.

    It could happen Eric....with that event being as big as it is. As you know, I was extremely disappointed in some of the policy changes made for that event.....but thats the way it goes.

    ...and lemme tell ya, he was reaaaaallll pleased about that...Rich's daughter had taken off work to spend the weekend at the track with him, it was her birthday...This definitely fell into the "Not Good" category...

    Which begs the question, where can one find an accurate schedule that denotes Double Header (DH) versus Vintage (V) events? I know I had located one months ago but I can't find it now. The one on WERA's website looks like years past, the one at the top of the page looks like the old way of doing business, sooooooo? Where's the accurate schedule?

    Oh, and hi guys, been awhile, good to see ya'all again...

    Whoops? Ahhhhhhh...OK, I got it, so the one at the top of the page denotes double header races, which of course excludes vintage, but the one on the website is well, like it used to be...MMMkay...Got it...I knew I had found it somewhere...Driving me crazy...

    It's simple - if the schedule has a DH by the events then there are no Saturday Vintage classes. Same as I've been saying since we decided to try this. It's not that difficult to understand and I truly am sorry about Rich showing up but I can't hold everyones hand. I have posted the information, it went out in press releases, it has been on the main WERA site. It is out there and all of the other riders knew and understood.

    What "one on the website" are you talking about? I did make a schedule and posted a link in this forum to specifically help the Vintage racers understand it but the normal schedule with DH listed is more than clear enough. What exactly is confusing you?

    Um, this one?

    http://maps.wera.com/schedule/?x=1098

    Look at the large link up top labeled, "Yearly schedule"...Says it was last updated in March?

    It's wrong.

    Although I did discover yesterday, mixed in amongst all the event schedules stacked one atop the other, something labeled, "2012 yearly schedule 2.0". If you look carefully, oddly enough it seems to be correct. It's right there between Talledega and Las Vegas...I haven't checked to see if there's a 3.0 down the list, I probably should...

    How is it wrong?

    You're complaining and I get that but I really need something specific to look at other than a general "it's wrong"...

    The other schedule is the one I did with things labeled differently but it's the same schedule. It is not as up to date with regard to contingency etc... as the main one. Which is why it isn't the main one and why it was buried down the event schedule list - it is not the main early schedule. If it were then it would be at the other link.

    It gives no indication of a format change at all? It doesn't denote any Double Header races? One could look at it and say, ohhhh, if you had been doing this 27 years and didn't visit the message boards or get press releases be led to believe that the format was the same? It says YEARLY schedule so you might assume that it is the YEARLY schedule instead of looking for the ACCURATE yearly schedule under the heading of the EVENTS schedule titled "2012 yearly schedule 2.0" and stacked in amongst all the race schedules? It's misleading that way, aka.; Wrong?
