    It seems Bayko isn't impressed with Kirkpatrick and how he handles himself. The exaggerated description of his results aside, Bayko makes a point. You can be fast a lot longer if you do it quietly. A winners interview where he talks about how he drove a good race and no DoD interviews, he's still legal and getting better.

    When did he have one of the fastest cars at Charlotte? Or were you referring to the testing a week before? Did that pay $12k to win???

    Second night qualified top five, won the heat and was DQ'ed from a front row starting spot in the feature. I'm not saying that was a World 100 victory, but my argument is to challenge Bayko's claim of "Perennial Backmarker".

    To build on mastersbilt_racer point about how it is an unneeded rule. Letís say it is better than independent front. Add up the costs of an independent front suspension. For the costs of a set of cheap uppers you could easily fab your own straight axle. Many sprint car guys build a simple jig and build 3-4 spares at a time for about $100 each. Iím not saying it is better or worse, I am just pointing out they are simple to self build, simple to replace and much cheaper than a full front end set up.

    I have been impressed by Kirkpatrick and love to see guys bring a different mouse trap and do well. The debate on which is better somebody can always make an argument, thatís not the point of the post or rule. What made late models cool is guys can be different.

    Yeah he was gonna start 1st or 2nd for the A main after dominating his heat. World of outlaws put an end to that real quick. I just hope whatever new car he makes over the offseason is just as fast. Would be hilarious for them to ban his car, him come back and win during speedweeks. Theyíd be trying to ban something else Iím sure

    Look at that, you sh!t in peoples Cherrios. And are now a millionaire. (not a nice word)(not a nice word)(not a nice word)(not a nice word). Next youíll marry Kate Upton.

    I agree with you.

    Got a younger guy at work who tends to do things that arenít smart either. You got to understand the hierarchy of a situation. Did he get DQued for the axle, I dunno. Would I, no. But itís similar to what JD and Rumley did. You canít try and tell the higher ups f you when they got the power.

    And all this hate for Richards. Arenít you the same ones who champion capitalism? Hate a guy because he is at the top. Does he throw weight, probably. So does every other big business, and a helluva a lot worse.
    Hoping for the old Bloomer to return next year

    CnB,

    What does an economic system, based on supply and demand, have to do with coercion?

    I like how every thing woo does is automatically marks fault and or doing lol the blue number one comes out on top no matter who's and box their playing in so I'm not thinking they were that concerned about kirkpatrick. I'm sure he may of been asked about his opinion on it but i doubt he was behind it.

    It's pretty simple. He supplies 90% of the cars. The guys in charge of woo don't know squat about race cars. He can tell them anything. He can get 10 of his drivers to call and complain. He's gonna get results.

    Aside from Rumley Rules, when hasn't he gotten his way?
