Not defending, but i know of alot of drivers that would not tear there motor down for just gasket money. When you finish top 2 its still barely worth the money or effort to put the motor back together to be there the next week. But randomly because your up in points? I think tech in the area needs to stiffen up, but hes been across he tech pad other times. Good luck, hope to see you back at the track soon.

I have seen many racers , that know they are teching the top 5 or so, drop out of the top 5 or act like they have a problem, to not make the top 5 and be teched. Geeze its not the end of time or the first time. Im sure thr Brown crew weighed their options before they did what they did. SOOOOO, let them and the track officials deal with it.  IT IS WHAT IT IS!!!!!   and NO, i dont know the Browns, but believe me its not the first and wont be the last time you see something fishy.

What was tech looking for (where is the scope too look in spark plug holes ,exhaust ports,take carb off and look down intake runners ect:maybe they wanted too look at the valves and (head casting the back side )i'm with thomas i wouldn't want to tare mine down for 25.00 either so where did the other drivers finish if they tore down then i guess i would but it would take me all nite lol and call work and tell them i will be late for sat work lol Huh Huh Grin

They took the top 4 in points and no matter where you finished you had to goto tech. They made us pull the passenger side head off and they checked it thoroughly...they offered to pay for head gaskets and sealant! They are just trying to keep people honest and make it fair for all the racers! If you are going to buy a race car and get into racing with rules, then you should be prepared to get your stuff checked whether you want to or not...if money and time is your excuse then you need to re-figure your finances and find a cheaper hobby! Don't gripe and complain when you have people trying to keep you honest...I applaud Glen for his hard work and the Tech man for finally getting a hold of this matter!

I wasn't pointing fingers saying it was them gripping on the internet, I've heard a bunch of other people throughout the pit and on the internet! It was a general point! I'm not one to start drama or point fingers, me and the Browns are on good terms and are nice to one another...that's their prerogative to tear down or not! I'm just making a general statement!

is the random points teching going to be reflected at the end of the year banquet with greater points battle prizes?

I for one am glad for the teching their are doing. "Being Legal" has been a battle for awhile. No matter the class. If you choose to not have your car torn down in the dirt & grit, that's your choice.
Live & learn  then, turn left !!!

Im all about tearing down the top 2. Even a random car now and again. But just because your in the top 5 in points....Points pay nothing. Its just a show of support for a track.

    cheating just means that you have to go outside the rules to get something done,  because you dont know how to do it within the rules! i have alot of respect for a person who is legal,.... no matter where they finish or are in points.     JUST RACE FOR THE FUN!!!!
