I am surprised to see so many pro drivers racing 19-turn.

Its buried. Usually we have no problems picking up the transponders, but its always a good idea to have them mounted off the chassis in open air or at least as low as possible on the car.

My compaint is not with the drivers. If they are getting paid to race, more power to them. My complaint is with the companies that are paying them.

It is DISGUSTING

I don't understand...why does it matter. This is the Nationals. It is where the Best of the Best gather to compete, no matter the class. Who cares if "so and so" gets a salary to race. I want to see if I measure up. If I don't....then back to the track for more practice and then next time

I don't have to win but I want to compete! When my car goes on the track I have the same chance as anyone else. I don't buy into that "Superior equipment" deal either. I have seen so many kick A$$ with nothing but A$$ hardware so I know that isn't the deal.

In the end it is up to me and my skills. The competition better BRING it because I sure am......

See you at the Nats....

If it is the "Best of the Best" then the best should man up and race mod with the rest of the best.

19 is just more track time plus a check if you win.. whats the difference between nextel cup and the bush series ...NOTHING...same guys in different sponsers cars....Just because You (rick) dont like it get over it...Your boy Karn wins the 23 turn class every year @ the TITC and you know he gets a check for winning japan stock...Give me a break, you need one too..good buy...
