Just a little more thinking on this...
I guess we've mostly swept this under the rug. But this is what I would enjoy to do. I think it would be fun to have a few guys show up next year and let the track let us run down in our own groups. Its not so much fun to just go to your local track, run down the track, get laughed at, and come back and tell us your numbers. It's way more fun to have a get together.
I have made an excel spreadsheet that randomly sets up the races in the first round. And then it tracks and computes all the rest of the race brackets, by inputting all the track data they give on the time slips. As long as we all weigh our bikes and riders together, this spreadsheet also computes horsepower to the rear tire.
So not only could we crown a "King of Rebels," we could also crown the top 3 most powerful Rebels. I think it would be a blast. Course not much is going to happen over the winter, and maybe this will be my last post about this for awhile. Cause it's getting right chilly down here too.
The only thing I wanted to ask, is about "bye" runs. If I could manage to get enough Rebels together to have even a small get together / race, I don't believe in running a "bye" run.
Let's say, for argument sake, 21 Rebels show up. My spreadsheet randomly populates the riders in a column. #1 races #2, #3 races #4 and so on. All the way to #20. However, the odd #21 racer would get a "bye" run. I don't like that. Nobody should get a cake walk. So, what I've done in my spreadsheet is to create a "lucky dog." Let's just say, I'm rider #21. And I've got a really poor running Rebel, and I'm no good at launching. It's not fair that I get a cake walk. So, me, the #21 rider I propose to have to race the, "lucky dog."
The "lucky dog" is the quickest loser from the first 20 bikes. Let's say the quickest loser is a rider who just happened to get lined up in the very first round with a former pro drag racing female who is 85 pounds and has a hot running Rebel (far fetched yes, but just for argument's sake). Is it fair the fastest loser is out? And my slow butt gets a cake walk? No. The fastest loser becomes the "lucky dog" and gets a 2nd chance to be in the winner's bracket, and get's to race who would have had a bye run.
So what do you guys think about the Lucky Dog / no bye runs idea?
