I'll let a little steam off! I'm so sick and tired of the 40 to 50 year old " man child " that are in this sport!!! Yelling at my ten year old about marshaling, excuse me but he didn't wreck your truck a$$ bag you did! It's not just the marshaling either there has been other thing that have happend that are pushing me right out of this sport.
These guys act like they signed million dollar contracts with Tork or Novak. Give me a break:rolleyes:
Unless I'm mistaken, you're probably the last person who should be talking about people yelling at kids after you grabbed someone else's at the Jones MORL Race earlier this year.

Got another thing that gets to me to complain about. Track owners who schedule race dates on top of other track race dates. All the tracks in the state are competing for the same racers, what good does it do to schedule events on the same dates? To be honest, if you schedule events on back to back weekends its not even good. To close together to get a big crowd. Events should be 2+ weeks apart to make sure they all get good turn outs, but I guess thats to complex for some to understand. :thumbsup:

Here's something I want to vent about a little bit. Has anybody noticed when it comes to 'Hacking' typically those who cry the loudest are the worst offenders of the entire bunch. Can't count the number of times I've heard yells and screams on the drivers stand about people getting hacked only to be dumped by those people time after time. I'll be the first to admit I'm pretty vocal on the stand but if I touch someone I'll wait and let them take the spot back rather than just continuing on with the old punt and run.

Yes, SC is a very "interesting" class to run in. Last night I started off making nice clean passes, cut to the inside, fun racing. Then you get to the next corner and the guy you just passed ass packs you to get back by. About the middle of the 2nd qualifier I was fed up with it too. Oh and yes, I made a point of taking a few people out for payback. At that point I didn't care about the racing anymore. :dude:

Unfortunatly some racers don't want to or can't afford to travel for a race. There is only so many weekends in the racing season. It is nice to have home track to race for fun and not have someone holler at someone else when they rub a little bit. Hacking is another matter. If you are that anal about it, go race with the pros.

Always work on resolving the real issue (the first hacking) instead of complaining about all the consequences is always the best solution for everything!!!

We have to educate people that get passed or lapped to be respectful, and tons of issues will go away by themselves...
And yes, if you didn't mean to take the guy out in the next corner, then STOP and wait for him.... Show respect and a "crash" will go a lot smoother even when it happens and shouldn't...
Don't start complaining you are getting it back right after you did something wrong... No need to go race with the pros, because the pros BEHAVE, that is why they represent the brands...
And no, it does not need to be the worlds to get good marshalls either. Be respectful and act the way you would like people to help you when you crash (i.e. hurry up to do your best to help the guy on his lid).
If you betray me, don't complain about the consequences of that.

if you can't, the answer is not to send the good racers to go race the worlds, it's to send the backyard bashers back in the backyard...
