Never and I mean never use the pass alert! All it does is make the guy in front of you try and jackrabbit! We learned this the hard way. Use it when your a car length away if at all. The element of surprise is what gets them to pull over or there necks stretching a couple good inches from the hit!No way to solve the problem and I agree there are many cases where a 10 car is held up by a spec truck.
The one thing that’s crazy is the huge gap between the fastest and slowest of any class. No good way to manage that.
I feel like once ion the race course it just has to work itself out. But again no reason to start them mixed up and cause problems for certain. It just puts a wall between some of the spec trucks and allows the faster guys to just check out.
We were the slowest of the spec trucks when we first started. But we moved over and didn’t get in others way. It’s really not hard to know who is behind you, especially when you are slow. Maybe I am more sensitive than most. But at every corner I am looking back to see if anyone is behind me. Probably not the best way to race but I can’t help it. Haha
