    Default Politics maybe?

    Is it possible that WRG would Change the rules to suit a certain chassis builder rather than the others? Im not against the droop rule but why not let these guys run the tires they choose? Also, these cars are too darn wide. Get the bodies under control and allow an open tire rule and the racing will be better imo

    WRG has one goal, put as many cars on the track as possible. I know people may think that they want to 'influence' who wins, but bottom line is it is a business and they need as many cars as they can get-which in turn brings in more fans; racetracks would want to book more events and so on and so on. Rules are put in place to make it a) more affordable or b) to make everyone feel that have a shot at running decent. I do personally agree that fixing the bodies and getting rid of as much of the 'aero' piece would be a great start. One of the issues you will see is having two 'national' series makes it difficult for one to make huge changes without fear the other will simply gather in all of the 'stars'.... Watched all of this happen back when Hav-a-Tampa moved out and the whole Stacker 2 thing tried and lost....Unfortunately racers tend to see things only for what works for them instead of the sport as a whole.

    The droop rule has really only affected one guy who has no idea how to get around it. Everybody else figured it out pretty quickly and is running just fine.

    The WoOís tire rules adapt to whatever the locals are running and provide AR options, unless they are at a UMP track. Then they run the UMP rule.

    I really dont think the zero knew the negative effect the droop would have on his cars. Id almost bet he never tested his cars under that rule and he is paying the price. No tire rule especially for the 100 lap races would definitely improve the racing. You just dont see the man who runs 12th for 60 laps make a charge for the win anymore. Comers and goers so to speak

    Dale McDowell has been running an even more restrictive droop rule since Ray enacted it. He never had trouble adjusting. Is Scott too prideful to just ask Shane what they did?

    Obviously.

    I think his main issue is still health. Though I agree it has affected him, though itís hard to say, is it his health or the rules. Saying ya canít really feel the gas would kinda hamper performance. Not trying to be a smarta$$.
    Bloomer is running awful. Guess who got Corona, still a conspiracy right

    He's also been running the same sweet/Bloomquist cars since 2017. Fergy, Weiss, and McDowell are all in sweet/Bloomquist cars, and they've all remained to be competitive. You can't duplicate those cars if you can't get the jig they came off of.

    Dale imo is off pace also. He broke his eldora top 10 streak this year and is in no way setting the world on fire. Wouldnt surprise anyone on this forum to see Dale in the warrior house ride sooner than later

    Dale isnít off the pace. Did you actually watch that race? He was running a strong second until something went wrong with the car.
