Fast Five Qualifying Concept To Be Implemented This Saturday May 14th
With qualifying points at a premium in the chase for each division’s Championship, officials at Bill Sawyer Virginia Motor Speedway will implement a new Hot Lap Qualifying procedure this Saturday that will pair the top five in each division’s points to run their hot lap qualifying session together. The session the “Fast Five” will run will rotate each week to give all competitors a chance at the best surface.
“Qualifying points are so important right now and this will give the top five in points the chance to qualify together so no one has an advantage. This will put more importance on being in the top five in each division,” commented track General Manager Clarke Sawyer.
