Default New NASCAR experiment

Qualifying for this weeks race will be the SAME DAY as the race. NASCAR will try it again next week....and once more in October (Martinsville, I believe).

so THAT'S what's going on....kept looking, kept seeing same day qualifying on the schedule but wasn't seeing an article about it so kept thinking something was wrong

well, I can't really do qualifying divis and race day divis simultaneously...I set the formulas different from one to the other

well the only way I could do it would be to manually bump the drivers who qualify top 5 along with their stats for the race....so not impossible

I've always kinda overpaid qualifying divis, but that's ok here too I suppose.

Thinking thru examples, including extremes- say the guy taking the pole would get a 9.6% divi for that but then he goes on to win the race, too, and earns another 9% for that. He'd get an 18.6% divi Monday morning. A flip side being the guy qualifying 3rd only gets a 2% qualifying divi and blows an engine in the race, ending up with a -5% for the race, softened to -3% because he qualified top 5.

Maybe I'm just talking myself into the little extra work to test this out just like they are!

that opens the subject of there being some hard decisions to make....qualifying vs race.....what pays more........

it would.....even harder if I'd gotten the setup where every driver got a qualifying divi, not just top 5, but that hasn't happened

yeah, let's give it a try...won't take me that much extra work and if it were to become more normal, I'd change up the formula to deal with it
