How many cars should you send for Triplemania Weekend?

Triplemania Weekend is a series of race events happening at the end of February in Ohio. There are 3 big races happening over 2 days of racing and if you plan well, you can enter several events with only a couple the question is, how many cars should you send in?

If you're only interested in modified class racing, you can send in 2 cars and you'll get entered in all 3 races. The restrictions for the modified class is the same for all 3 events because they're all happening on the same track.

However, you'll need to denote which cars are entering which race on your entry ticket.

So...lets say you make 2 modified cars, Car A and Car B.

Now you might notice that you could send in only 1 car and it would get entered into all the events as well, and that's true. But since the Downhill Diecast Drags tournament allows 2 entries per person, I'm assuming you want to hit that max entry limit.

Of course, there's nothing stopping you from sending in 4 different cars; 2 for the Downhill, 1 for the Challenge, and 1 for the Battle. I mean, go crazy if you want. But if you're looking purely at the economics, sending in 2 cars is your best bet to get you racing across the board.

What about the stock class? If you're interesed in just the stock class options, then the math can get a little more complicated. The restrictions for stock class varies between the Downhill and the Challenge tournaments, which means you could send up to 3 cars to hit your max entry limit...but you could also send in 2 (or even 1) and get into both events.

And if you want to enter 1 car in the modified class, and 1 in the stock class, you can find a way and still enter all 3 events with sending in 2 cars. Just pay attention to each tournament's restrictions.

Even with all that...please, please read through the details for each Triplemania event. And no matter how many cars you choose to send in, please mark which cars you want entered into each race on your the entry ticket. It'll help us keep things straight and make sure we enter the cars you want in the races you want.
