I would say we need to test out a few more tracks that we have upcoming. There wasn't a lot of input last night since no one was here.

I'm hoping we could do some this weekend, either today, tomorrow, or Sunday. If not, we could do it Wednesday night (No plan for doing the regular test session for the Shootout)

all we really need to test is pocono and auto club theres only a few tracks we didn't run last year, and maybe infineon. for like phoenix, watkins, pikes peak and stuff we already ran there so i think regular Wednesday testing should be fine.

Me and Sherm were talking about the all star race and we thought it would be fun to spice things up such as:

Doing the qualifying where you do a lap, then pit, then do another lap and your total time is taken. we would run it like we did Daytona 500 qualifying but everyone would have to line up in the garage area

the other thing we thought would be fun is to do a standing start, not a joke

Reading through an article on SB Nation with Kyle Busch getting asked questions, he mentioned the Michigan test saying that he was hitting 37.80's on his runs, but Gordon and Keselowski were hitting 37.20's.

Thought I'd mention this so that you could get a feel for the right grip settings Jake lol

Times are irrelevant considering our cars are like 30 mph faster in the turns and 20 mph slower on the straights

Well, we were talking last night about how the track makes us go full-throttle, which is something Jake said he doesn't want to happen.

Just up the tire wear so that we're not doing it the entire run. You're not going to be able to increase the grip at a track like Michigan, where we already can go nearly full throttle with stock grip, and not have full throttle be the fastest way on a short run.

What version of Homestead are we using? Each one handles different and I don't know what base setup to use.

Um... All I see is a 2009 Chase edition, and a 2008 night edition. No 2010...

do you think going back to fixed setups would recruit more people for races?

i'm guessing you guys have talked about it.

we've brought it up every now and then and i think it will help bring new people here. once we get some new people then maybe we could go back to open setups but i would vote in favor of fixed setups next season

Like I said, I've always been fine with an open setup league, so long as there is a contrasting fixed setup league as an alternative. We currently have three and car counts are about the same across the board.
