I received a copy of their database to test with.
looking at it initially it appeared that all the settings were ok.
The only anomoly that i was qurious about was the red rooki class had a max car setting of 6
Dannielle said that they had that setting last week but ran fewer cars.
when I looked in the main transfer settings for the event the junior class was set to 4 senior 6
I tried setting the max cars to 10 and it generated races
but seemed to leave 6 slots for transfers
I went to transfer count override and there was not an entry for an override
I changed the Max cars to 6 and entered 4 cars in the transfer count override and races generated.
What appears to have happened is someone at one time entered 6 cars in the transfer count override for Red Rookie class then later deleted it
Moscore-qm still had a setting of 6 for the junior rookie class, but there were no indicators to that setting. the error came when moscore tried to generate a race with max cars 6 and 6 transfer positions.
I think transfer count needs to be reset to default count in race settings if the override does not have a visible value

the default settings on the BQMRC Moscore-QM was for 4 cars for Junior class, and 6 cars for Senior class
The Max car setting for the red rookie class was 6 cars
The above settings conflicted so the mains could not be generated
The Red Rookie class is not deemed to be a Junior class
If The red rookie class needs a different transfer count that should be changed in the Transfer count override setting

to prove this I changed the default Senior car transfer (mains setup) to 5 cars instead of 6 and the races could e generated
I reset the default senior car transfer back to 6 then changed the transfer count override for red rookie to 5 and races could be generated

Danielle sent more information on their race on July 12 to show where their discrepancys were
this is what BQMRC requested help in changing settings

Rookies no more than 6 in each main (4 go straight to A)
Jrs:  10 in A Main (4 go straight to A)
Srs:  12 in A Main (6 go straight to A)

Their settings were wrong in the following areas
Max Cars for Mains needed to be set for each class as the have specific rules
I found they needed the Tie Breaker to be changed from draw to Race number
I also found that the information given to me was different to an image that was supplied for Junior classes, The A Mains showed that they wanted 4 cars slotted of the A Main, not 6
Awaiting feedback from BQMRC
