    Alway expect the unexpected. John way to step up and help alleviate a controversy. We appreciate all you do. However we all registered under the rules set forth for the series. Changing the rules after the series begins may not be the optimal choice. You already have reasonable safeguards in place so why not use them as intended. It’s a slippery slope with racers and rule changes once the event has begun.

    Again D & C only digression is he built a car capable of breaking out which speaks highly of his build and prep capabilities showing he actually belongs in the BASX PRO division.

    Somebody has to win and it looks like we might have a pretty heated series brewing.

    Agreed. He deserves the chance to continue with the other AM’s, some of which are seriously fast also, including RRR. He took the top spot, now let’s see if he can stay up there. John, your tier 2 gig makes it possible for more than just one racer to benefit from the sponsorship if I am reading that right and that makes this all the more appealing and fun for amateur racers which is good for the league. Thanks for your efforts.

    HaHa, Some like it hot.
    If I'm not mistaken the top 7 cars were all bellow .9599 & 5 or more of those pulled off their fastest pass ever at some point.
    So .01 is basically separating the top 8 racers.. That's the A/C coming on at the wrong time or somebody opened a door.

    I'll be in your mirror every race so y'all better not slip up.
    Kick the tires & light the fires.

    Good Luck to you all.

    We have the pot stirred up pretty good out of the gate, It's anybody's series.
