  • Car Count

    the number of IRL participants is obviously going up this year. This is a good thing.

    I know the IRL rules have a max car count per race. Can anyone tell me what it is? Does anyone think that the IRL might be sending people home with out making the main event?

    Count 28 or even 30 cars for this year.

      I'd say that's a tad high for full-season entries. But I do think 24 or 25 sounds reasonable, with more for Fontana, Indy, and hopefully Michigan. Does CART race on the same weekend as Michigan?

        Per the 2001 IRL rule book:

        SHORT OVALS

        Qualifiers: 26
        Provisionals: 2
        Total: 28

        SPEEDWAYS

        Qualifiers: 28
        Provisionals: 2
        Total: 30

        INDIANAPOLIS 500

        Qualifiers: 33
        Provisionals: 0
        Total: 33

        Of course there is also this line in the text:

        "The IRL may modify these guidelines at any time and for any reason the IRL deems appropriate."

          Yes, in Vancouver, BC, Canada! Street race.

          Cart will be on the west coast, and the IRL will be in the mid-west.



          Gee, I wonder which race will have the faster pole speed?

            Indyracer56 - Thanks for the Info

            Question still stands, does anyone think that other than Indy, that the IRL might actually reach these levels??

              I think we'll see a big crowd at Fontana, but around 25 cars at all other events. I could be wrong though.

              Of course, none of the Pre-Indy IRL races conflict with a CART event. Maybe we'll see Ganassi at Phoenix or Homestead as well.
