To state the obvious, I don't like b*ybacks. Most everyone I've ever met knows that about me. However, not everybody knows why I don't like b*ybacks. I don't like b*ybacks because I think they are dead wrong.
You lost. You don't make that fact go away because you paid an extra fee to make it go away. You got caught speeding. That fact doesn't change because the cop accepted your $50 to forget about it. Yeah, one is an illegal act and one is not, but sometimes just declaring something legal doesn't make it right to me.
I don't have a problem with a separate "second chance" race. In fact, I might just enter one of those. Take care. Tom Worthington.
OK I LIKE THEM! I LIKE 1ST OR 2ND HECK I DONT EVEN MIND 1ST AND 2ND ROUND BUY BACK BUT I HATE GETTING BEAT BY SOMEONE THAT I BEAT 1ST ROUND. I THINK BUY BACKS SHOULD RUN EACH OTHER TILL ONLY ONE IS LEFT THEN THEY GO IN TO THE NEXT ROUND OF THE REGULAR RACE!

I think they should only be when there needed to make the purse and one round only. And if there going to have them every week I think at a set number of cars they shouldnt. Example at tracks with curfews.
I LOVE buybacks.... Especially if I am traveling. This is the way I look at it.... I wait ALL week to go racing....Saturday's here, Pack up the trailer, Load up the motor home, attach the trailer, get the wife and kids ready, get gas, drive a hour, or more ..finally get to the track, take ONE time shot (one of our local tracks only have 1 time run) and loose first round!!! So let me get this right, I just waited all week,and went through all that, and money spent($200.00 day at the least) to race my car for maybe a total of 14.8 seconds, and I am done for the week.....HELL NO, GIVE ME BUY BACKS!!!
If a race has buy backs, and they are advertised as such, the racer can choose whether or not to attend the race. Some say it adds rounds to a race, and that is true, but if more cars showed up that would potentially add rounds also. I don't think that buy backs should used at a points type but I know some tracks/markets need them to operate profitably. I guess what it all comes down to is I don't like buy backs unless I lose first round, then they are a great idea.
