QUALIFYING AND RACING
Each day started o; with all 16 drivers and 32 trucks
setting a qualifying time in each lane, which set them
up for the racing brackets to run later in the day. ;e
qualifying times were used to seed racing brackets, just
like the system the full-size trucks use. ;e trucks raced
two at a time, “heads up,” with qualifying time determining
lane choice. ;e lanes were swept and watered between
rounds and racing brackets to ensure conditions were the
best they could be all weekend long.
Driver interviews for the crowd were
common throughout the weekend, but
having a camera show up wasn’t. You have
to be on your toes when they show up.
