Rulo told me he moved to the outside of the corner to give the inside to Tom Koch but Koch followed his line off course and got into the back of him.
IMO it was just a mistake made by both parties. granted there has been a handful of incidents involving Tom Koch but this doesn't seem to be a blatant hit on a limited car like may have been true in the other incidents.
Tom was still going into the corner awfully fast, I wonder what would have happened if the 1600 wasn't there to slow Koch down??? it could have been a wild/ugly ride.
I'm just glad everyone involved are okay and that Rulo will be able to fix his ride and get back to racing. there is always next year for a SNORE 1600 points championship!!!
$.02= 2 problems here, the 1600 stopped on the course, and it seems the car stopped right in front of the triple arrows left, blocking them from view, ...was the 1600 car getting lapped or was the 1 car down and making up time?
i DONT suggest stopping in the middle of the course and the end of a long DUSTY wide open straightaway.........the 1600 guy would have a WAAAAY better case WITHOUT the video.......video doesnt lie......
Yea no **OOH LA LA****OOH LA LA****OOH LA LA****OOH LA LA****OOH LA LA** Rulo slowed down it a TRIPLE down turn! the class one was coming in way to fast for the turn! It was not like a long sweeping turn or anything, it a TRIPLE down turn. Rulo dedicated his life to this sport and has more years of hard work to than half of us posting right now. It just pisses me off he had to get taken out by a driver who has no chance at winning driving over his head, and taken out my brother. Its not like a hobby for Rulo, its his life! 702 210 7788 call me if you got a problem
Tom and Rulo spoke to each other today. Sounds like Tom is doing the right thing and Rulo seems relieved. I'd still like to talk to Tom about his aggressive style when passing limited cars. I'll get through the weekend and give him a call. Kudos to Tom for stepping up.
