Who’s in and who’s out? If your in, why did you chose this race? If you have raced it before and your out this year, why? Let’s get this going.

Out this year because my car had too many last minutes issues and don’t want to show up half assed and DNF over something dumb.

the qualifying doesn’t affect me, but some of the comments from big names in the sport lead me to believe they are not happy one bit. Truly sucks the qualifying isn’t gunna happen 👎🏻 Was looking forward to spectating it.

out this year. I really like SS300, but too many lose ends that are not coming together in time this year. I'm on moto, so the lack of qualifying doesn't affect me. I'm shooting for V2R and maybe legacy's NB, we'll see.

I would more say this is the last time that it will be held over the head of the casino for size limits. On Saturday, May 1st, control of the people is turned over from the King of Nevada to the counties.

Jax Redline and I are in the TT. We almost had 2nd place last year but a flat took us out of a podium. We shoud have even a faster pace this year now that Jax has a lot more seat time.
Keep that chopper above the AGL required 🤣 All kidding aside, good luck guys. It’s gunna be a fun race! Hoping for a little wind to help clear the dust.

No qualifying really hurts our chances with a rear starting position on a one lane track. If it wasn't for a sponsor commitment we would be pulling out. No qualifying in the last two BITD races in Pro Turbo class when a commitment was made at the beginning on the year isn't a good sign for the future.

Look forward to watching you guys race, regardless of the circumstances. Good luck this weekend! Running only the SXS or a truck also?

I am with you steve, no qualifying for us on a track like this seriously hamstrings us. On the bright side, there are several fast guys starting in the back due to mechanical issues at parker so it will be fun trying to get to the front......

I'd like to see a live draw if they aren't going to run qualifying.

Agreed Steve. If qualifying was planned and now not possible, the proper thing would have been to go to a draw for starting positions. Just another example the questionable decisions BITD staff have been making lately IMO.

Could have thrown a draw together in the time it took to put out the press release.

BITD seems to give up easy these days. Canceled the Pre run and now qualifying?

Seems like there has to be a way to pull off a qualifying location? Lots of options in the Vegas area. Apex, the speedway course that Score used, Jean, the speed place that you can pay to drive a off road truck in south Las Vegas, etc.. lots of options so it’s odd they just gave up.

Silverstate 300 is not the place you want to get stuck behind slower race vehicles on race day. #dusttrain
