Didn't cause one caution all year until tonight when I cause two because of racing incidents. Rolling Eyes Another reason why I hate the 2C rule, (and no, 3C isn't any better). I don't want to go in rage mode, but it's dissapointing as hell when your 3rd in points or whatever, and cause two incidents by not trying to wreck anybody. Just extremely frustrating to race clean and cause incidents by not trying to wreck anyone.

that was fun. Kinda sucks we had those cautions, but thats WHY we have a 2c rule. We're not changing it. lol I've had to park myself a lot of times before, shit happens.

Well that was fun. Just hate it when I drive so hard into a corner to keep from getting dump, and then while going 94 MPH, I still got dumped. Oh well, no harm no foul. At least it was fun.

I apologize for complaining about it earlier, but here's something I think would be better, and it's forgiving for someone who gets into a couple incidents, but they don't really cause incidents very often at all.

wrote:
Each time a driver causes a caution during a race, they will be scored one (1) Penalty Point (PP) per caution (this DOES include self spins)

Everyone starts the season off with 0 Penalty Points

For each caused caution that driver receives one (1) Penalty Point

If a driver reaches three (3) Penalty Points they will be parked for one race in that series

To clear a Penalty Point a driver must complete their next race without causing any cautions (unless they suffer mechanical failure or are involved in someone elses caution)

One (1) Penalty Point then shall be cleared bringing that driver down to two (2) Penalty Points

In summary:
Cause A Caution +1 PP
Run A Clean Race = -1 PP
Accumulate three (3) PP = Parked for one race

I know I'm bringing this up because I parked, but there is once in a while when somebody will self spin once or twice, and get parked because of it, this rule I think would be better IMO. Call me a complainer, but that's just my opinion. I know the 2C Rule should be enforced, just really frustrated when you're running for points you know. lol

I agree that the system can be tweaked alot. I just don't understand why this is only becoming an issue this late it the season. Why? Because two chase contenders were parked in one race because of the rule? It's been the same exact rule, for every single person, throughout the entire season.

The reason it's an issue now is the fact because we were trying to chase Caleb in the championship, and the fact it's a short track can cause a few more cautions is all, and the cautions I caused (or at least 1 of them) was to avoid from wrecking somebody, and I self spun and brought out the caution.

What's done is done, but that rule has seemed to work pretty nicely in other leagues, if somebody has an "off night" and causes 2 cautions in one race (someone who never usually causes 2 cautions), and for somebody who always gets in wrecks, it works out better for the league.

Well for right now, we're not changing it till the new season. New rules package next season will be discussed, but atm, its just 2c. Honestly, it isn't that bad at all really. And penalty points would really get to a point where its confusing. We'll discuss what we could do to fine tune it, But we'll discuss it sometime in a couple weeks on what could be done if its really such a big issue now. But for right now, its gonna be 2c till the end of the season.

2C rule is perfectly fine. Its simple really, if you caused an avoidable caution then that is your C, simple as that. If its a racing deal then nobody gets a C. The rules are the same for everyone and the same every week. I understand judgment calls suck but if you got into the back of someone then its clearly your fault regardless. Unless they came down on you or something.

Didn't really feel like racing even though I was like 2nd in points. so I went out with friends and started my weekend a day early.
