Default IS MAYFIELD SPONSORED BY GRP?

I HAD THOUGHT HE WAS TAKING A MONTHLY PAY CHECK FROM GRP, BUT AT THE BUGGY NATS HE RAN HIS O.S. SPEED.....

I was pitting across from him and watched his car on track and all I could think about is why anyone would run an orange head. Saxton runs an OS Speed maybe it was his car?

I would not go by what the announcer said. They have no way of knowing what people use and get it wrong frequently.

Who cares. If you are so concerned, find him and ask him yourself instead of spreading misinformation and conjecture.

At most big races you go to the drivers fills out a sheet with who his/her sponsers are......The ususally do this when signing up or right before the mains....Before the main begins they annouce the drivers and there sponsers......

I am familiar with how big races work. I have filled out many myself.

But at THIS race, the announcers were mentioning the products they thought drivers were using, during qualifying, and not always getting it right.

wow...

I think this should stop. Its wrong.



Maifield (notice spelling) was running GRP. I saw it and Rick Hohwart verified it. I filled out a sponsor sheet for Ryan to go to ROAR.. I know what I wrote on there and wasn't OS. I looked at product as I was writing it down....



Funny stuff explaining to Rick how big races work....... LOL

not to mention 80% of the time they cant even get peoples names right (they always spell my name Jessie lol). Its hard to say what anybody ran without you being there for yourself.

and what happened between whoever should be left there and blowing it out of proportion on a public forum isnt cool at all.

its one thing to post your opinions, but to post individuals funding or altercations between whoever isnt right. JMHO.

Dawn, this rumor sprouted from neobuggy.net reporting that Maifield was running an OS with a GRP head on it.

And yeah, you know Rick needs things explained to him, he's a newb and you know, a little slow.
