I was wondering the same!?!? We got a nine because of car count and it seems low this year. There was 12 at the Duel race and I know us and about 6 others are locked in for MORE this year but we were looking forward to BAP and RAGE! What is going on?
Last year the class averaged 11 cars per race. We lost a couple drivers to 1600, with one of their cars being bought and racing this year. The class is definitely not dying and is still one of the most consistent classes in the desert.
Biggest 3 races last year:
Rage at the River (18)
Battle at Primm (17)
Dual in the Desert (15)
Only two races with less then 10:
Caliente 250 (6)
Midnight Special (5)
Races being too close together is the main issue, but numbers on somewhat on the decline, For BAP it is really showing in a lot of classes, 1600, 11, 1450 ect. like said several years ago numbers were very high, forgot what recent year it was where BAP capped at 400 entries.
