Default 2011 TxMC championship points standings

here's the points standings after H2R. First number is raw score, second includes 2 drops if available. With a total of 7 events, the most you can be scored on is 5. If you ran every event so far, then the second pts. total includes 1 drop. obviously, you have 5 or less events then 0 drops were used, that's why many have the same raw and drop scores.

Street Class

1st: Jake G. 26 26
2nd: Bill G. 20 20
3rd: Matt B. 16 16
4th: Quan P. 10 10 (tie)
4th: John E. 10 10 (tie)
4th: Sean ?. 10 10 (tie)
5th: Mike D. 8 8 (tie)
5th: Dustin C. 8 8 (tie)
6th: Kevin K. 6 6
7th: Brian S. 5 5

Modified Class

1st: Chris L. 20 20
2nd: Carter W. 18 18 (tie)
2nd: Jeff M. 18 18 (tie)
3rd: David H. 10 10
4th: Chung Y. 8 8

Unlimited Class

1st: John Z. 41 36
2nd: Trey R. 36 32
3rd: John R. 30 30
4th: John W. 26 26
5th: Dan L. 23 23
6th: Carter W. 10 10

Before round 5/6 @ H2R, Trey was leading unlimited by 1 point, Dan and I were tied for 2nd. J-wags was 3rd and John R. was 4th.

Modified has newcomer Chris L. jumping to 1st with Jeff and Carter tied although it's David H. that's the darkhorse in this class. He was fast at tws before and it's rumored he has some heavy artillery in store for Chris and Jeff.

In street, Jake has jumped to the top, but if Matt B makes the final event, he could derail the Jake and Bill train.

In the words of Big John Mccarthy, "let's get it on!"

Sounds like a fun day, sorry I could not make it. So, we were tied for second and one point behind 1st, and it was decided to do an unanounced double points day with one event remaining?

Hey, it's your baby and you make the rules and do all the work, but I would suggest reconsidering what effect those decisions have on season points standings going fwd into next year. Imagine if SCCA and NASA were to do something along those lines.

Anyways, good luck at TWS. You girls be careful and don't break any nails.

wasn't decided on until we knew they would change direction for us. Might feel bad if i thought it would have changed the attendance, but i don't believe it would have considering the forecast. also, that's what 2 drops are for.

John, 2 drops from 7 events is different from 2 drops from 8 events (unless 8 races are stated at start of series). Example:

'Iwannagoreallyfast' decides to play in the series. He decides to not attend msr-h and H2R events for whatever reason (work, pms, crabs, etc). He has two "0" scores to drop. No biggie, he's got five events to score in like everyone else.

Now suddenly, H2R becomes a double points event and he has another "0" goose egg hanging in his points. "Iwannagoreallyfast" now has his hopes and dreams crushed, goes psycho and brings hi-po semi to full auto weapons to final event and carnage ensues. Or worse, he calls a lawyer.

Or not. Nvrmind.

lawer for TxMC? lol, that would be awesome. what's the first rule of fight club? this is a no budget, guerilla tactics race series. nobody knows we're there. and the point is to become faster drivers. the trophies are an incentive to get people off they're asses and still nobody shows up. only a couple events a year have enough entries to pay for the trophies. then i have to ship them sometimes because nobody shows up to the next 3 events. add a few stickers, championship trophies, and i'm into this a few hundred dollars a year just to try and get people out there. I've never complained about it because i love racing, have a blast with friends, and want to go faster. and it's working, wether it's tips from someone or just the competition aspect of it, i'm evolving. so the lawer calling, gun toting guy can sux it, cuz i got nothing for him. i don't have a car in my name, a bank acct., nothing. but i do get my *** out to the events, one way or another, cuz it's my passion, not a mere hobby. That's the kind of TxMC peeps i wanna drive with.

*EDIT* reading it again, it sounds like a members only deal. so the following weekend, or if it's too up in the air, we will just do 2 TWS final events.
here it is:

I'm requesting a tip of the hat for "most miles * discomfort" by driving my car to every event, lol. It's hard work to burn up the highway without a back-eotomy.

My concern was for future growth of TxMC, thinking from the outside as a current and/or future participant. I'm always thinking how best to grow the series and forget that it's not NASA/SCCA. It's a group of grassroots guys having fun with miatas.

Your job is not easy, and it's amazing how you stick with it. Please carry on, and accept my apology if you care to.

Louisiana is an "open-carry" state too I believe.

I'm down with both -open cary with a bottle and my .45 - so why am I not seeing NOLA on the Nasa schedule? Things looking good for coming on down - maybe with the wife but she'll hopefully hang with her friends and leave me alone.

I highly recommend not bringing your wife anywhere around me and my GF in general, we offend people.
