The 2017 date is set for March 3 & 4. The IROC team event will be Thursday March 2, the individual competition will be Friday March 3 and the team competition will be Saturday March 4.
For the 2017 Fray in Ferndale, the Individual competition will be standard Fray cars. Seeding will be determined by an Indy style time trial. Each driver’s seeding will be determined by his average time over a four lap run. The drivers are then ranked and seeded according to their four lap average lap time. A better qualifying time will result in higher seeding and fewer chances to be eliminated. Move ups are determined first by points ( 1st-6 point, 2nd-5 points, 3rd– 4 points…). If there is a point tie, the tie breaker will be the number of laps. If there is a point and lap tie, the overall run time will be the tie breaker.
We will start with the “Y” main and work to the “A” main. In the mains, every person will drive a 10 lap heat in each lane to determine who moves up to the next bracket. Seven drivers will be seeded in the “B” main with three moving up from the “C” main. These ten drivers will run it off to determine which six go to the “A” main.
Once again, each team may tech in up to 14 cars with the team racing being run in its normal format.
See you in March,
