winning the club races doesn't mean much except having fun.. the most important is to keep driving and to learn to deal with the problem during in the races..
I rather stay on focus on driving and not let it get to me...I know you are trying very hard to get better...Adam your SS is dialed ,just keep on practicing
to build your confidence

Drinking alcohol at the track can get the whole thing shut down. If a guy drinks at the track then gets in an accident on the way home, the track can be liable. It should not be allowed. I dont mind drinking alcohol but not at the track. go to a full scale track...its not allowed there either.

Neither should be allowed at the track IMO. sure they are both legal but one can get a ticket for drinking/smoking(MJ) in public. theres a place for this behavior and the track in not one of them.

your point is invalid. Its prohibited. how would you like to have the nora program or the seattle program shut down because somebody was drinking or smoking mj. I sure would be pissed and a few others would be also. It is NOT allowed and should not be tolerated. Period!

Very true Franco. And it was beer. There are people who smoke weed and different things at the tracks. The point is if you get taken out keep driving you never know how the race may turn out at the end. This whole thing is about us having fun and playing with Toy Cars

Well, i knew about it before adam did. i had witnesses it taking place in the parking lot. I was just waiting to talk to john till today. What ever the point, its still prohibited period. beer, booze, pot don't matter. It is all prohibited and puts the tracks in jeopardy of being shut down.

If you want to drink a beer? take it off site. if you want to go smoke a bowl? go for a drive to the store (what you do in your car off site is none of my business) and smoke away. but dont do it on the fair grounds site please.
