I'm not sure if MDR has a rule about driving backwards on the race course like all the other series do but they should. I was at the MDR race on Sat in the Mi 33 to mi 34 section (little hill jump/bumps ie not good vision) and watched a chase truck drive backwards on the course at around 45 mph. To say the least I was horrified. As a racer that is one thing that I would rather not have to worry about. It should not be left up to the judgement of the chasers whether this is exceptable or not. There was plenty of room to run along side the course. IMHO this action should constitute a DQ. Consider the alternative.
