    You will have to ask the race track that question, that decision was out of the series' hands since the altercation occurred at one of their events, not a STARS MDRL race. We don't get in the middle of business like that.

    maybe you should get in the middle of it since its your series and he is loyal running the entire series if in fact its your series then your points drivers should be allowed to race so your telling me that the tacketts are telling you how to run your series

    Won't be missing much except maybe a wreck if Linville doesn't show up.
