You'll have to tell me, Jimmy. I've only run the series for 3-1/2 yrs, and heard you used to run the series before my time. So I would suppose you scored season points in the pro classes back then, and that would exclude you from running amatuer. But I have no records. 

You're sure welcome to run the DLM class as well as the pro classes any time. :)
