I didn't make it out on Sat but I was there today. Wanting to see Woods race. I saw some things that I considered questionable. One guy exited the hot pit, turned around and reentered the hot pit counter circuit. One car was in the pit though no others were coming. I don't know of any sanction that would not only permit that but let the guy continue. A couple of the Prolite guys need to find some speed. There were at least two that in my opinion should have been taken off for failure to maintain a race pace. One guy was pretty good about staying out of the way but another became a moving chicane when the lead pack came up on him. I didn't see what Robby was said to have done so I can't comment on that but I did see some things that I was a bit surprised happened at a pro event.I will say there there were MANY unsafe/dangerous things that happened by MANY people yet RW felt the wrath of the officials. I guess it's the job of the officials to drop the hammer and we can't hate them for it because that is their job, but of we are swinging the hammer lets hit all of the nails...
He was robbed. Officials came together in the meeting last night and said that round 3 penalties would not affect Sundays race day. Until 8 this morning. He was black flagged do to an incident with Kyle leduc which in Robby's opinion was understandable. He later got collected up by some guys and had nowhere to go but across the infield. When entering back onto the track there were no trucks around and he did not gain a position. He later started to rotate on turn 1 and was pushing into the k rail so he went around he jump to avoid the wreck. Again he entered the track with nobody around. So maybe him pulling fastest practice time twice and second in qualifying was a threat and people complained we don't know. We do know the fans loved the action and were very upset seeing the team packing up this morning. In the end people come to see excitement and Robby gives them quite a bit. We will see where this goes for now.
You and I are about to agree with something -- take note hahaThis^
Robby drove like a racer in round 3, not a maniac.
He didn't do anything out of the ordinary that should have warranted such a blow to championship contention.
Without Robby in the field the fans lost out big time. The officials have made some tuff calls with bonehead results.
Like everyone else I feel like there are 3 too many unqualified drivers in the "PRO" pits class
He has been black flagged before.What about Carl's dirty driving Sunday in P4 when he couldn't pass Barron so he decided to try to take him out in the last turn. He is a danger on the track once he doesn't get his way or is out-driven. You will NEVER see a penalty given to him no matter what he does. EVER.
Kyle raced two trucks in two different classesIf Robby got robbed, it equals out to the gift that Kyle got IF they let him race a pro 2 in the pro4 race. One guy they make sure he gets points for a championship run and the other they toss out. Hey be happy your series didn't have "Mopar-gate" in prolite like we had to hear for a full summer. Will either series admit when they are wrong???
