    Re: Too ugly to win

    Wait a minute... As a *cough* seasoned novice, am I technically eligible for rookie of the year?

    Well, experts have won it in the past so...

    Start the year as a rookie, you're eligible.

    Ahh, just wasn't clear on the wording there. Said the rider has to be a novice but doesn't mention first year in LRRS.
    Implied? Yes

    Read #2. Did you bump up to Amateur as soon as you were eligible? I remember one year when Keith from Vanson declared that nobody won Rookie of the Year because riders who were eligible to be Experts stayed Amateur and "cherrypicked". (His term)

    With the auto-bump time thresholds, is this going to be much of an issue any more?

    Is there an auto bump from Am to EX?

    There is based on lap times, a rider can elect to stave it off until the end of the year but doing so means you're not eligible for the RotY award.

    Would a Pro AMA Flat Tracker be eligible for rookie of the year, technically?

    Well, an expert road racer from Cali pulled it off so... If you start the season as a Rookie in LRRS, you're in the hunt.
