I actually think that some of these penalties are way over done but switching from Baja racing to a no pre-run rules galore one line "race" is not happening for me. I am a SCORE racer even if I don't like all of what just happened. My family has been at the 1000 since 1970 and we will be there in 2009, this is our heritage.With the recent low turnout at the 500, poo economy,violence in mx, now the penalties. How many racers are going to race Score when BITD is growing more and more?
Not sure I would consider your car a level playing field!!! LOL...Quite the contrary for me. I can't wait to race in mexico and know that I will be on a level playing field with the locals that race in my class.
yeah, it is negative to those who cheated, but most honest people are happy with it and now everybody has a chance of winning, before you knew that only top teams could win with all their money and cheats.A Lot. Many racers see the enforcement of the rules a positive, not a negative.
yeah i agreeI think there will be a lot of people that WILL race score now that didnt before because the rules are being enforced now.
Why would anyone see SCORE enforcing their rules as a negative? Never could understand how anyone could blatantly cheat and stand up on the podium to accept their award when they didn't run the same race course as the others. This is the best thing Sal has ever done. It's unfortunate that it went on for so many years like it did, but better late than never.
hahhaa yeahI don't think this is the end at all. Remember, Casey Folks can be just as bad as Sal Fish. I remember in years past his son helped lay out one of these no pre-run V2R races and then turned around and "won" his class.
Racing without chasing sux. Only being able to go in after the race course closes to haul the carcass out just doesn't make it in my book. Sure, you can enter a "Mule" but now you've gotten even more expensive than just chasing. Stage racing is for puzzys too, real offroad endurance racers race straight through, all night to the finish.
