    Man it’s a good thing the women’s wasn’t three or something this time. That would look bad.
    Four is way better

    Did anyone else try to watch this live and feel like they just added a few dogs to the counts for Gideon and Chiger at the end for no reason? Other than to give a higher wild card number to George…

    I’d love to see a clean video of this qualifier to see if their totals were accurate.

    they will find a way to get Conti in with a wildcard or a secret last minute qualifier that nobody knows about

    I don’t think there will be a “last minute” secret qualifier. If anything, he’ll just do another qualifier event and they will add a plate or two to his total count. I’d love to see him and Ronnie H. go head-to-head again. Should be an easy W for Ronnie this time around though
