    So if there is still around a 75% chance for reserved seats in both Tampa and Lexington is it reasonable that as a third and fourth choice I might get tickets? I have both shows GA as one and two (assuming neither of the GAs hit).

    Possibly, those are pretty high numbers..........but also, possibly not.
    Indy - 08.17.98

    EV Jax - 11.24.12
    Chicago - 07.19.13
    Pittsburgh - 10.11.13
    Moline - 10.17.14 (The No Code Show)
    Milwaukee - 10.20.14 (The Yield Show)
    FtL - 04.08.16
    Miami - 04.09.16
    Tampa - 04.11.16

    Look at all the shows as separate, a box for every show. Your name goes in a box for every show selection. On a first GA draw of one show of say 250 pairs, they reach into that box and pull 250 names. 100 of them are 1st priority, they get the 1st pick, 1st priority ticket awards. Those 100 are tossed and they throw the remaining 150 back in the box. They randomly draw 150 names, 100 of those names have it as their 2nd choice, they are awarded 2nd pick, 2nd priority tickets and so on.
