Greg Hodnett is a 'RESIDENT' of PA; a 'NATIVE' of TN, contrary to Bill's excellent article.

 

 

Definition of native = belonging to a particular place by birth

He’s been a “resident” for nearly 20 years. Ask Greg what he is, chances are he will tell you he’s Posse.

Wolfe had an impressive showing with how many laps of a partially collapsing sideboard.

Schatz moves up 16 spots 21>5. Ian Madsen moves up 16 spots 22>6.  Schatz is listed as hard charger. Shouldn't that be a tie?

Hodnett ain't Posse.    He may be racing in Pennsylvania now, but that ain't where he learned to race.    Don't care what anyone says, that's a Memphis boy.

The highest finisher gets the nod for Hard Charger

Hodnet's night: Qualifies 17th. Starts 5th in his heat and finishes 3rd (passes Shane Golobic and Sawyer Phillips who qualified 27th and 37th respectively). Starts in the front row of the A main and finishes 1st.

I don't understand how he earned the right to start in front. Color me unimpressed.

Added note: Watching people puff out their chest at a "Posse" win vs those that get argue over who is and isn't "Posse" is just silly.

Posse fans get a lot of chances to puff out their chests from a front row starting position. But ya gotta remember, even then, they still don't get to that often! wink

The top 8 in time trials who make it through their heat are inverted. Hodnett was the 7th and Zearfoss Was the 8th.

get a clue dude. Learn the format. the top 8 from time trials who transfer are inverted in the A. Been the same way forever! 

If that had been Larson, Schatz or anyone else, you would have been ok with it.

Every lap counts at Knoxville with the point system.

Get a clue? Bet you're fun at a party.

I didn't know, so I asked a question. Its a shame you felt the need to respond this way. People were kind enough to respond. I understand now. Dialogue isn't a bad thing. I understood the invert in the heats, but didn't expect to see an invert for the A main.

A thought about the inversion: The purpose is to put a faster car behind a slower car to create passing. It would seem that this passing should be worth more points in ranking the effort of a driver/car. Perhaps I'm not understanding the purpose as its intended?

The Knoxville format is pretty complicated so it’s completely understandable that people are a bit confused. This is my 14th Nationals so I know it pretty well but even i have to remind myself of some of the rules because they are so different than the normal sprint car race.

I was also impressed he held onto that thing, especially at Kville. Shame though as I think he most likely would've finished a couple spots higher and gained a few more points (though I'm not sure he would've gained 9+ points to move higher). He's on the bubble now sitting 9th in points.

I'd argue that you get 3 points per passing car.

Doubt it too because he was fading prior to the brace giving way.

They do get points for every car they pass!

True. Either way he's on the bubble but will be starting close to the front of the B Saturday (unless he elects to run Friday which I doubt but we'll see how tonight goes).
