I like bracket racing. I run Super Pro with an inline six. Most of my competitors have 500 - 600 cubic inch V8 BBC cars. What a kick it is to beat them. If I had to run them heads up, well, you know where I'd be - on the trailer after the first round. Handicap racing gives me a chance to win with my screwball combination. My track also has Heads-up racing once a month. Fills the place. The track owner is smart enough to realize that by having it only once a month the racers can come loaded for bear, blow up a bunch of stuff, kiss the wall, pull huge crowd-pleasing, axle-bending wheelies, and have a month to get it all fixed. I can't afford that, but I don't argue that its more fun to watch than a train wreck. To each his own, I guess.
