I guess all those TT and class 1 guys that pre-ran the TT250 in the AM (WITHOUT having to lease an IRC because the said they were only going to do 1 lap) are out of luck...

Might be the reason for the rule.
They don't want the sportsman class to become a prerun but I guess a crew guy could be the DOR and have whoever for a passenger.

The reason for that rule was Pistol's idea of pooling all the entry fee money and everyone enter sportsman. The way he had it figured was the winner took home 65k in cash money.

just sucks for someone that might be moving up in class or adds another car to the fleet ... maybe they will make exceptions .. im betting casey will be willing to hear everybody out

Seems like if Casey wanted to accomplish preventing this, there were other ways to do it.

It is too bad that someone who has driven in a pro-class will not be able to go back to sportsman and race for fun as DOR.
