99% sure its Daniluk and ya it was BS just like the RD breaking my Return band and DQ'ing me as well...However, It was stated NO ONE was allowed any stools except for the few kids *8-10 years old* that were racing. Also he failed to show for Sunday mornings drivers meeting which was mandatory and Steven knows that as he's raced many big races before.

The driver's stands are like 9 feet in the air and you need a 6" step stool? If you're over 5 feet tall, you don't need one of these. Almost every driver seems to have one these days, it's getting absurd. Ok, gripe session over.
WOW....its official.......people WILL find something to complain about.

All of which are much higher than a small stool. The real question is why would you want to outlaw them??? What harm do they do?
I agree they do help on the shorter drivers stand, but when people stand on them and then stand right against the rail it makes blind spots for the people that are not using them. I don't think they should outlaw them I just think people that are using them should be courteous and stand back off the rail a little bit so the other racers can see too.

My track has a few booster on the stand all the time, i honestly need one.

Im 5'9" and where our rail is it would be perfect to be 6'2" or above where i hold my TX.
If i dont have the booster i have to stand back and am blind on sides, or i have to hold my TX up high and cant even make it throw a qualify run before im tired

The leaning over sounds like a better option, i will try that this weekend

There is no problem with these are all.

These tracks are so big and so deep that it is hard to see certain spots of the track from a certain part of the drivers stand.

9 foot drivers stand with a track that is what say 120 feet deep with 4 foot high piles of dirt in the way of sight. That extra 6 inches can be beneficial.

Dont worrying what other people are doing and just drive.

Not a fan of these either. It started as 1 or 2 but now the hole damn drivers stand has them so it's no different than if they had none. I kick 'em out of the way if they're where I want to stand; take your crap with you when you're done. Short peeps and kids, yea, I can using them (again, take it with you when you're done).

the Dirt wasn't what it was supposed to be (whole other story ), The Rd wasn't the same, And your Right it was some what of a Sh*t show with the fire marshal coming in and threatening to shut us down(luckily it didn't happen), Turning the fans around on us and Forcing us to breath Nitro/Dust all weekend Sucked the big one.....All of our power supply fan's were Gritty for weeks after the event and alot of people got seriously sick in the weeks after.....I dont blame you for not wanting to attend another one.

Yeah, If I remember the dirt kinda sucked to say the least. I really liked the track layout but trying to find a tire that worked was the issue. With the fire marshalls I was a little nervous about them shutting us down, Thats forsure.With all the fans and stuff i remember going to the hotel and showering and it BLACK coming out of my hair. LOL. I was also sick in bed for a week. It was so FREAKING cold in there. Like -25 to -30 Celcius. I was wearing gloves for the main.LOL. I could barely drive.

the track by my house "impounds" the little stands if left behind, that is only because one went flying and broke some stuff one day, i personally dont see the purpose of using them, like stated earlier, your already 10-15 feet in the air, what good is 6 inches gonna do?
