No New Posts Handicap racing

Establishing a racing handicap for each racer. This handicap would be used only for a race designated as a handicap race.
For example, we could designate the 80's NASCAR class as a handicap race only.
The podium would be for the three highest lap totals using their handicap.

Welcome to Shoutbox. Post your viewpoints here, but keep your posts civil.
Keith Tanaka: Good idea Craig. After the big effort that goes into preparing for the recent Nats, it's good to take a break. I'll be making new lane cards for some of the new hardbody racers. I do plan on making a new car before our next monthly races on Nov. 16th. Oct 24, 2014 11:57:17 GMT -8
