7.0 license category
« on: November 03, 2018, 02:47:19 PM »
what nhra license category would be for 7.0 pro?  would that be cat 3? and how many runs to go from sportsman to cat 3.  reading it, it seams like two full runs faster then 7.49.  i thought it was one full, one half, one 60? 

also, what category would i select of the ones listed in cat 3?

Yes that's we had to do with our new driver last year 3 runs, but at least one under 7.50 to upgrade from an ET license.
Two runs in Fontana and the thrird in Phoenix.

Will they let you make a single at the MM? I would hate to see you tow there and not get to

That could happen, because they will have a TNT on Wed. You might want to call Mike Rice Div 7 director to confirm the license run.

well, were going one anyways (cant miss MM :D ).  i just stated that as an option even if it is/was possible.  it would be Wednesday tnt only.  if worst came to worst, tow down the weekend before and do couple hits and leave the car there on-sight and come back Tuesday afternoon.. who knows.. maybe tow down weeks before if sac isnt open or rained out. its months out and will be here tomorrow.  we would test at sac anyways and id imagine could get the three in easy before then.

if its close, ill call.  i dont see if an issue if all i needed was one run.. just hypothicating options.

Dean, i'm 45 miles from Sacramento. You're always welcome to leave your trailer, etc, at my place (secure 3 acres) if you wanna run back to back weekends @ sac, or whatever.
