    Need Help with GDB Qualifying

    Okay, so whenever I try to make a starting grid in a track, the cars still start randomly.

    Here's what my GDB looks like:

    DBirdTacky
    {
    Filter Properties = SuperSpeedWay 2005 SRGrandPrix OWChallenge *
    Attrition = 30
    TrackName = Daveybird Speedway Tacky
    EventName = Daveybird Speedway Tacky
    GrandPrixName = Daveybird Speedway Tacky //this must be the same as event name in order to sort circuit info correctly.
    VenueName = RSR Tracks
    Location = RSR Town
    Length = 1/3 Mile
    TrackType = Dirt Clay Oval
    Track Record = Daveybird, 13.58
    FormationAndStart=2 // formation lap with rolling start (safety car leads the field and peels off into the pits)
    RollingStartLoc=0
    TerrainDataFile=DBirdTacky.tdf
    GarageDepth = 2.00

    AIDryGrip = 0.9266
    FormationSpeedKPH = 44

    // DefaultScoring overrides
    FormationLapSpeedKPH = 100
    RaceLaps = 400
    RaceTime = 240


    // Time-of-day lighting
    SkyBlendSunAngles=(-20.5,-1.0,11.5,25.5)

    ShadowMinSunAngle=15.0

    Latitude = 42 // degs from Equator (range: -90 to 90, positive is Northern Hemisphere)
    NorthDirection = 275 // the direction of North in degrees (range: 0 to 359)
    RaceDate = // default date for the race

    SunriseAmbientRGB = (120,120,110)
    SunriseDirectionalRGB = (255,248,198)
    SunriseFogRGB = (204,174,240)

    DayAmbientRGB = (200,200,200)
    DayDirectionalRGB = (255,255,255)
    DayFogRGB = (203,214,236)

    SunsetAmbientRGB = (130,130,120)
    SunsetDirectionalRGB = (255,248,198)
    SunsetFogRGB = (204,196,122)

    NightAmbientRGB = (10,19,46)
    NightDirectionalRGB = (30,30,30)
    NightFogRGB = (0,0,0)

    Qualifying
    {
    Scott Bloomquist =
    Billy Moyer =
    Daveybird =
    Chub Frank =
    }
    PitStopStrategies
    {
    Scott Bloomquist = 2 - 18,40
    Billy Moyer = 2 - 19,41
    Daveybird = 2 - 18,40
    Chub Frank = 2 - 29,41
    }
    SettingsFolder = DaveybirdSpeedway
    SettingsCopy = DaveybirdSpeedway.svm
    SettingsCopy = DaveybirdSpeedway_Easy.svm
    SettingsAI = DaveybirdSpeedway.svm
    Qualify Laptime = 13.50
    Race Laptime = 13.50
    }

    I make sure to uncheck all the preliminary sessions (qualify, warmup, etc), and to set my starting grid position to Current Season. I also triple or quadruple-checked all the participating drivers' names to make sure they match with the ones in the GDB. What am I doing wrong?

    Have you tried to add some Qualy Times?
    Like (Times are in Seconds):

    Qualifying
    {
    Scott Bloomquist = 93.354
    Billy Moyer = 93.6
    Daveybird = 93.864
    Chub Frank = 94.001
    }

    Yes. I think the problem is that I need to include all the drivers in the roster, because when I did that, it worked!
