    WoO let Jason Sides and James McFadden miss several races this year already. Mcfaddens deal is somewhat understandable. Sides took a whole month off because someone rearended his hauler and the WoO didn't care to keep him on the payroll. Something doesn't add up there? The guy wanted one weekend off to be with his kid. The WoO needs Cade more than he needs the WoO.

    Even if the sprints and late models are ran by 2 different groups, it still doesn't make it right that they're both under the WRG banner and don't get treated equally. Someone needs to straighten that up.

    Things like this tend to remind drivers that following a tour isnít the be all end all in dirt late model racing, especially when you have a family.

    Sides accident was just that and wasn't any fault of his. I totally understand Cade's situation but there was nothing wrong with him nor his wife or a close relative in the hospital, hauler wasn't broke, & no funeral to attend. When it comes down to it this was his choice and I applaud him for putting family first. I think you have to understand both sides of the situation. Could he have made it there yes. Did he choose to go no.
    Now down the road WOO could add some provisions and have those listed under the hardship rules going forward.
    To me the championship money thing is stupid. I think he should still get paid for his points finishing position.
    Davenport missed a few races in Lucas because he chose to race at Bristol instead of Atomic & Brownstown.

    The first being that, paraphrasing, we get paid for taking off work for stuff with our kids. There's a large segment of the population where that simply isn't true. Consider yourself fortunate if you have that benefit.

    The second, unless their rules changed, every driver should've been aware of the consequences of this type of circumstance. I don't see it as " having money stolen".

    It certainly shines a negative light on WoO, especially with how Cade expressed his perspective. I wouldn't be surprised for a rule change as you mentioned.
    I understand everyoneís employment situation is different, but a lot of places now allow you to accrue time immediately, so that you have a paid day built up every six weeks. But again, I know everyoneís not in the same situation. As for the money stolen part, heís earned his spot in the points. To take that away from him for missing one race, just seems extremely harsh.

    Davenport hasnít missed a race. He was at atomic, and he gets to run at brownstown in Septemberís re scheduled race.

    Them not having a hauler is a poor excuse. You can't tell me if they really wanted to race, they wouldn't have leased, rented, or borrowed one. I can see giving them a pass for a weekend, not a month.

    Good on you 97.

    The best thing in life Iíll ever be called is dad. That paycheck helps provide for them, but what they need most doesnít come with a price tag.

    Enjoy the walk in. Itís an honor every time.

    He didn't even want the weekend off. He just wanted Thursday night. But they know there barely gonna get enough cars tor a full field so they shafted him.

    Anyone know what the Lucas rule is on this? They can take time off whenever they want?

    To get points fun money you only have to be at 75% of races I believe

    Unless they changed it it's 80%.

    A.) If a driver that is in the top twelve (12) in point standings misses any event(s), that driver must
    make-up total number of missed event(s) before driver is eligible once again for winners circle money

    Whichever day of that 3 day show is the makeup I donít think they are letting him run. Otherwise you let that happen and every time your tour has an extremely unfavorable forecast guys would quit showing.

    Iím fairly certain I read an article on DirtonDirt that JD was going to be able to run the Lucas make up event.

    I understand rules are rules, but in situations like this, I believe WoO should have the top 10 (or 8 or how many are committed to the series) vote on it. Cadeís been loyal to WoO for awhile now. I know wasnít happy that the WoO opened the season in Florida forcing him to miss the Wild West Shootout.

    Technically Davenport could just use a provisional for Brownstown.

    Family is your first priority, daddy. That is the word that will always touch your heart. WRG, bone heads again.
