Fighting the Bracket Battle

My philosophy is "Everyone has to win at something." Some win at love and others at war. I choose to do battle with an inanimate object (my car). No one gets hurt but my wallet. Life isn't easy to keep pace with nor is my combination. At times, winning a race seems the most impossible thing of all. Despite the added difficulty of running a five speed and the excessive expense, it is hard to explain the thrill of a quarter mile. pass. At this time, conquering my fellow racers seems a long way off. 

As of late my car has gotten the best of me. I am currently making some changes that I hope will give me the upper hand (like so many times before yeah, right!). Winning would be great yet it is not necessary for me to be satisfied. Understanding and learning is my true goal. Bracket racing is an ideal choice for this quest. If you look at the big picture, it's one of the few ways to race that can be tailored to your budget.

My name is Joe Turco. I run an automotive machine shop in New York. If you have time to check it out, I have an Excel spreadsheet to calculate your index for my bracket racing plan. If I recall correctly Bill has suggested the hook factor as another check to expose sandbaggers. The page in on my web server but it is not linked. http://ulster.net/~tmsjoe/plan.htm
