And the difference between bracket and index? What percentage of entries is heads up vs. bracket/index. The more bikes the better for the sport.

^^^ Never did either one... but, prefer to Watch, Index... leave together...arrive together...
Just My observation... but I'm afraid the "Big Show" is Dying...Empathy and general "don't give a shit if it aint Me" kind of attitude is Gonna win out...
Then we will all have to got to "Car Events" to see the Likes of Top Fuel Harleys....
I detest Cars... so... I will Not be seeing them at all at that Point...

Those guys running Index 9.90/10.90 are brutal. One thing to note, AMRA would be well advised to run event before May. Or in October/November when weather is a bit cooler. I parked my van on the fence, Air conditioner blowing, cold beverage in cooler munching on Publix sub. Somebody lost their A$$ this weekend. AMRA and/or OSW track I did my part.
