Matt: Just trying to get all the facts.
It's hard to believe that ROAR would run into these same complaints at two consecutive Nationals-level races. I was surprised myself at the relative lack of Tech at the Carpet Nats. The "random motor inspections" were a joke and usually came out of cars in the lower mains. Another point was the drivers standing on things on the drivers stand to get a height advantage -- someone mentioned that happened again, same as it did at the Carpet Nats. Grown men, 6 feet tall, standing on a barrel! haha
Another interesting point: I attended the NORRCA Carpet Nats a month after the ROAR race, and man, they got it right. No goofy qual-points system, real tech inspections, and the NORRCA president was on hand for the entire event, start to finish.
Should ROAR take a page out of NORRCA's book? heh
