I went down to Acworth to see the pro tour over 5 years ago and was thinking about going down again this year. I remember I went on a Friday, and while I didn't see all the big names, I did see some great riding while avoiding crowds/parking issues/$$ tickets. All the information I can find now says that everything happens only on Saturday the 18th. Is this true? Are qualifiers no longer part of the process or do they use some ranking system to reduce the number of competitors or is it just a really really long day of riding?
