Actually, the class count of what they have now and the class total of what they ran together at MRP, their Grand Nationals, is the same: 12. I imagine the decision was meant to not throw a complete wrench in things, but try to spice up a spark and bring back the numbers that significantly hurt them with USPKS gaining this year. USPKS actually lowered their class count from this year to next year by eliminating Masters and nearly eliminating Rookie, on top of actually having longer practice sessions, (10 minutes v. WKA 5 or 6 minutes) and two heats each day v. one prefinal.
I’m only using USPKS as a comparison here because it is WKA’s main competition, and looking at the results, it is where former WKA drivers have gone to now.
