Burbs

Just about every form of full scale racing has officials that call penalties for rough driving. They aren't called umpires, but they serve the same purpose. So that argument makes no sense at all.



And just because some rich dudes that only turn left can smash their way to the lead, doesn't make it right.

Somebody ask professional OPEN-WHEEL racers if rubbin's racing? Some of you guys watch too much Days of Thunder. LOL.

Yes but we arent racing open wheel are we?

Touring cars are allowed to bang doors and rubbin is racing in touring cars.

There is a large difference however between rubbin and blatent take outs or punting another car etc.

Fair Enough said, everybody knows that Scotty is a great anouncer, but you all seem to overlook that someone can announce, but someone has to officiate as well.

yes rubbing is racing, but there is a fine line between rubbing to make a clean pass, and haking to gain a position. Personally i try to make it as clean as possible, with little to no contact regardless, but not everyone has this philisophy.

Just my 2 Cents.

Scotty uses a race official at the Reedy because of the somewhat-unique penalty box system, and because he can't watch passes and follow the action at the front at the same time. There is only so much one person can do.

Likewise, because the race uses a penality system that relies on judgement calls, there will be disputes. Just like pass interference, holding, balls and strikes, etc. No system is perfect. If there was no system we might be havng the same conversation about how so-and-so blew through whoever to take the win in some critical race.

There is only one answer to that question, and its Scotty Ernst.

In racing your going to have contact, and not all ove it is going to be seen. There is no way you can hold it to the annoucer to see everything, his crew has to be on the ball too.

Driving, I always try to go by clean - and if the guy gets taken out - I wait.

Calling a race - You have to look at it as rubbin' doors is just racing. (to a point of course) Once bumpers, quarter panels, and fenders are involved - that should be a penalty.

Yes i personally think a clean pass it a good pass, or even a block pass, to slip in, but you must also consider that at the Tamiya Track there isnt much room for passing and the Starting Grid, personally i think is set in the wrong place, so normally the start is where you see most of the Contact.

I met Scotty in Italy at the Worlds where he was an Official and Not an Anouncer, so im sure he has a game plan in Order.

me as well if i take the person out, i wait until he is in the position he was before, but not many have this principal, it would be nice but, it doesnt happen that often!

The spotter at last years race was seen being a little to pre occupied with the trophy girl than watching the races but overall he did do a decent job.

I think Scotty has done a very fair job in the past at the Reedy race and at the IIC. Like Shane said, some things are judgment calls. I do think he needs at least one or two others watching from other positions on the track to help make the calls since there's no way for him to be able to see everything.

Scotty speaks highly of the RDX, so you probably misunderstood him. He absolutely without a doubt runs associated cars, I think.
