Are the Martelli's expecting every team to have a registered backup co-driver in the event the co-driver gets sick? What if someone is dealing with dehydration? Either sit in the truck and risk something serious or take a DQ. I bet most racers take option 1. WAFJ.

Thats what the victim of Loftongate 2020 has to say. Seems fishy if you ask me...

Looks like Jamie Tesar (IG) asked to speak to the manager.

That poor nephew having to inhale dust at an offroad race. :rolleyes:

EDIT: Sorry, I jumped to conclusions. Looks like Lofton isn't completely off the hook from what I am hearing now.

Reminds me of the BLM official who stood 2 feet behind a quad at Glamis, told the quad to leave, then got mad when the quad threw sand on his boots. Not his face, not his shirt, but his boots. Then cited the guy for whatever infraction that was.

I personally witnessed Lofton’s poor use of judgment (I was broken right next to the media guys) and will not be posting about it. It simply isn’t my place to say what he did but it definitely was preventable, unnecessary, dangerous, and unsportsmanlike. This is Justin’s story to tell; he made a mistake, he was punished, and hopefully he will learn from it. Were his actions uncalled for? Absolutely. Does that make Justin a bad person? Absolutely not. I pray for him
and truly hope he takes this experience and better himself for when a situation like this occurs again. Nothing but love to the 41.
It's not even worth trying to explain to the mob. The torches are already lit, ain't nobody got time to consider what actually happened.

But the narrative for years and years has been that the Martellis only care about money and TT's. If so, why on earth would they DQ Robby F'ing Gordon and 3 time Mint 400 winner Justin Lofton unless they felt they had good reason to do so? The irony is that if they did nothing and word of these issues got out, the mob would be railing about how if you're a TT team with money you can do whatever you want. Lose-lose.

Information from someone who was there at the scene. Now you fan boys, and, or pitchfork holders can read and absorb.

Wow....you just threw Justin under the bus!! Let Justin tell his story before you come out with your side. You have no idea what was going on. Not for you to come out on social media and do this!! Apparently...the old days are gone!! You've never made a mistake during racing??? Your Dad has been involved in this sport for a long time and I've been a fan and followed him forever. Your Dad has never pushed the rules or made a mistake? Problem now is people like you who push your agenda of "I'm perfect" on social media. If Lofton did something wrong....Im sure he will come out with a statement. In the heat of the battle....most of us have made questionable decisions....including me and most every other racer!! Flame on!!!

You go out of your way to push a false narrative on anything you can if its against the martellis. Yet have to audacity to call someone else out for posting about something they personally saw. You are off your rocker old man.
Yep...have 3 years experience at Mint.....you?? Martellis are hiding behind social media rather than talk about whats happened! Forget about me....what Sourapous just did is unexcusable!! Ill be banjed cause of Sourapousas family...I know that!!!
