Sorry I have not replied faster, I will try to do better on other questions asked.
With that said, Scott, I am in the process of looking over the tapes from last weeks races. I did not see the incident on the second yellow, nor was I asked anything about not making contact with another car. If you did not make contact and spun to avoid another car stopped and you were NOT the one that brought out the yellow, we made a mistake and I will make sure that our officials are on top of making sure who is directly involved in wrecks. To many times last year, we were pointing fingers at people for bumping or rubbing and always giving guys their spot back. If you are involved in a wreck, stopped on the track, you will go to the back. Just like the start of the SS feature, all cars in that accident were sent to the back.
Now, with that being said, we will give spots back for guys that spin to avoid but do not come into contact with the accident. If anyone thinks that we want people tearing up their cars, they are mistaking. The least amount of damaged cars equals more cars on the track weekly, which means more people in the stands. That is our goal.
I also want to mention from the discussion on this post from other people, that if someone takes out another driver or plays dirty in the eyes of the officials, starter, or race director, they will join the person in the back that brought out the caution. We feel in this instance they will think about forcing the issue on many occasions.
In closing , i thought for the first night with a lot of new people the program when very well and Chad, Randy and the Guys did one heck of a job with getting the track smooth for opening night. Thanks for all the discussion, look forward to seeing everybody at the speedway for this Saturdays ALMS Late Model Special.
As always, thanks for all the support,
FALS Race Director
