Experience Pays Off

A line of demarcation comes in the classes they choose, that is, do they like racing in a ``class`` or ``category`` on a regular basis or are they strictly a bracket type racer. By ``bracket type`` I mean the kind who spends most of their time at the local track and who tries to win a track championship and, possibly, earn a spot in the Summit ET finals in Pomona. You could sit around and bench-race all day about which is the preferred way to race but in the end it is up to each individual to do what seems best for them. Ironically you will not find a lot of bracket racers who do much class racing and you won`t find a lot of eighth-mile racers venturing to the quarter-mile tracks on a regular basis, that is, unless your name is Alvie Merrill, and then you`ll race anything, anywhere, any time.
