Rick Day Posted August 15, 2006 Report Share Posted August 15, 2006 I would like to Thanks Jeff Ashmore and Nick Holt for there hard work saturday night. Drivers have been after us to step up the tech inspections at SAS and we have done so. Jeff and Nick did a great job Saturday night as always. It has been our policy all year long that if there is a problem found in tech, I am to be notified so I can come and evaluate the situation. This past Saturday was no exception. I listened to what Nick had found, looked at the other two Cameros on the tech pad, read the rule again to make sure what it said and the decision was made for the DQ. Yes there was a list of items to be checked on Saturday, but in any instance during an inspection when something is found it is grounds for a DQ. NO warning is needed. Its no different if I were to pull heads one night to check valve size and angle and found pop up pistons when the head was removed, it would be DQ'd. We appriciate all the racers hard work and support of the speedway. When we decide to check something it is checked on all the cars on the tech pad. NO one person or team is singled out, When it come to tech everyone is the same. When i had my series in Fla, my uncle raced on night and was wrong and i DQ'D him. I even DQ'd my vice-president and right hand person nephew one night at THR after time trials for 7 lbs. IF its good for one its good for all. If something is overlooked one week doesnt mean its legal the next, just means you took money that didnt belong to you. We can't catch everything, but the bottom line is we have a job to do to keep thing on a level playing field the best we can. If you're DQ'd take the punishment like you took the money all year, fix the infraction and lets go racing. This by no means is ment to single anyone out. We're all here to have fun guys and crying all week long takes all the fun out of it. Lets go racing and put the fun back in it. Rick Day Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
