<DIV>Oâ€™FALLON, MO (January 25, 2011) - The American Drag Racing League (ADRL) has announced that it will implement a new rainout policy, which will go in effect with the first race of the 2011 season.
Adverse weather conditions are an unfortunate hardship on all involved in the sport and the ADRL appreciates the continued cooperation and support of all participants, tracks, sponsors and fans during the implementation of this new policy</DIV>
In the event of rain or other adverse conditions that delay or cause an event cancellation, the following new policies will now go into effect:
â€¢ If two or more rounds of qualifying have been completed but eliminations are unable to begin, then 100 points plus qualifying points will be awarded to the top 16 qualifiers in each class, and the event will be considered complete.
â€¢ If two qualifying sessions are unable to be completed and no elimination rounds are completed, the event will be considered canceled. All racers with an event tech card will receive 25 points for participation.
â€¢ If any elimination rounds are completed prior to an event being declared a rainout, points and payouts will be awarded to that point in the contest under the normal system and the event will be declared complete.
All qualifying points and payouts from the LenMar Motorsports ADRL World Finals VI, which took place at Texas Motorplex in Ennis, Texas on October 22-23, 2010, will be awarded under this new system and the race is considered to be officially completed.
Payouts from the World Finals in Ennis will be available at the first race of the 2011 season, which takes place March 25-26 at Royal Purple Raceway in Baytown, Texas. All 16 qualifiers in each class will receive qualifying payout plus 100 points and qualifying points. Additionally, all participants with a tech card will receive 25 participation points. For this event only - the ADRL will pay qualifying money even though no elimination rounds had been completed as stated in the new policy.
The ADRL will continue its policy of not racing on Sundays and in no case will an event be carried over or completed at a later date.
Dang! Should'nt they have told the rain out racers at the last race before implementation? Seems a little odd to do that 3 months later.
Its called holding your assets to use our money to better theirselves as if they need it.Ha Send a damn check.
I really dont understand the rain out deal after eliminations have begun? Do they add the payout up and split it or do they only payout to the round that was completed? Kind of confusing? I hope it will be clarified,Im sure it will be ok in the long run? I dont agree with the decision to just give us qualifing money and pointsfor the race in Texas but it is what it is I guess? Just have to roll with the punches.............Edited by: Rob Hunnicutt
If weather allows, why don't they finish the events on the day after Saturday?
Thats the million dollar question? I kind of understand it but when it rains you just want to finish the race and atleast feel l ike it wasnt all for nothing......
It all comes down to dollars and cents. If they can't stay out of the red there will no longer be an ADRL to race at. We've been spoiled by them in the past but times are tough. We all have a choice whether to race with them under their rules or not. No use complaining. You either go and know what you're against or race somewhere else or stay home.
Yeah, But why don't they race on Sunday???????????
<DIV>I wasnt really complaining..</DIV>
<DIV>Just passing along information.</DIV>
<DIV>I was looking forward to the double race in Houston though.</DIV>
