Why didn’t Josh Hansen race the East/West shootout? The East and West main events also served as qualifying heat races, and when Hansen crashed in the West race, he finished tenth, one spot out of qualifying position. He then explained that he had no idea the main event served as a qualifier, and he didn’t even realize he was supposed to race an LCQ until that race had already begun! http://racerxonline.com/2011/05/10/racer-x-notebook-las-veagas Wow, he and his team dropped the ball! I find it hard to believe they didn't know to get him on the gate for the LCQ!
