Forgot about that fiasco. Didn't he have to get grade points?

Here's a quote from an article from B/S.

"The reaction to the news has been interesting. On one side of the fence there are the people that are freaking out because they claim that he has been unfairly inserted into the field. Technically that argument does not hold water as NHRA allowed racers with ONE grade point register for pro mod at Indy. As an NHRA license holder, Shearer had the necessary point to register for the race."

Yes, they'd need to race a divisional before cut off of March 12th to make one grade point by the Gators. Provided there is a spot open on the entry list, then she could register for that event. Right now there are 25 of the 28 entry spots filled already. PM is allowed 4 additional spots so its possible they can make that happen. The funny thing is I think she did race in a Sportsman class (Super Gas? in somebody else's car) in 2016. Nothing in 2017 so therefore she has no points for this series.

So, If you don't run the current or previous year, You lose the "Grade point(s)"?

Cool

If she moves to PM I may have to start taking an interest in that class.

Yep.

"The grade points earned in either the previous year, or the current year (whichever is greater), stand as the driver's "grade"."

So it only takes one grade point to get into P/M? Or was that one point requirement just for Indy '16?

Are there any divisonal races on the schedule before 3/12/18?

My bet is she'll run P/M at the Gators with no grade points.

And isn't there a rule that disallows Pro racers from running in more than one Pro class per event? I know they can run both a sportsman class and a Pro class. But I thought they couldn't run in two pro classes per event.

And before I'm labled as a EE hater, I'm actaully a fan of hers.

There are Divisonal races before the Gators. Orlando is one.
PM isn’t a Professional Class… yet.
