5] 80% fun 20% racing What does that mean. ?
5A] It’s like the Supreme Court once said about their ruling. “I know it when I see It.”
5B] Everyone has been successful in their life endeavors and we are men. We don’t want to be embarrassed. We could do a lot of things with our time. So it’s about fun for the most part. If one person wins all the time it’s no fun for anyone else and borders on embarrassing.
5C] The reasons to eliminate a participant to the invitational club event are longer than the rules. It is a club so we all have to get along. Everyone needs to leave very happy. That means safe, cars rolling back on the trailers and the camaraderie we all love about this sport.
5D] Most of you are former Champions and another win is completely meaningless. Whatever a win means, it never means creating un-necessary danger for either involved.
5E] If you win one get to the back of the pack until someone else gets a turn. 80% fun 20% racing (We’ll talk about that more. Very Important)
5F] If your that good and need that much exhilaration of a win WE ALL suggest you go try your skills with the 20 years olds. There are plenty of series and classes to measure yourself.
5G] Most of us are beyond that hence the 80% fun 20% Racing Club Moto.
5H] We don’t want to have kids coming and practicing with us so you need to be 50ish .
5P] No drivers competing in a point series race for 1 year prior to participating at a CSRA event.
5Q] Again if you own a Vintage SuperModified, Sprint Car or Champ Car you are already a member.
All rules are open to change at the discretion of Race Promoter, Race Director or Participants at any time with CSRA having the final approval.
