    Working right front brakes have been required on mods for at least 20 years .

    Well said. And dumb on his part. You’re so good, don’t beat yourself.
    Up in the air who my next “favorite” driver is. Really losing hope on Bloomer getting anywhere back to “normal”.

    @Nick_Hoffman2
    For the first time in my career I won and got DQed. Was told by the tech guy if I would have waited til a couple laps left to take off rather than killing everyone it prob would have been ok. No rf brake. Had a shutoff go bad a few weeks ago so I plugged the line. Oh well.

    That should have read that the techs at Fairbury figured out what was going on with the brake deal and tipped off the guys at PRP about Hoffmans wheel speed sensor for traction control. Poor Nick finally got nabbed.

    There is a guy on FB saying that same thing. And he could very well be informed.

    I should say WAS. Crazy John took it down. It must have gotten good.

    I would like to know which racing body allows brake shutoff valves for the right front on a modified. Is it legal in UMP ?

    A. All cars must be equipped with a working braking system on all four wheels and all four wheels must be able to stop/brake at all times.

    Ok so having a shut off plumbed in is legal ? What do they think it's there for, he admitted it went bad so he plugged the line. If they can't see it then I guess it's legal ?

    RF brake shutoff has always been legal in the 18-20 years I have ran a UMP modified.

    Portsmouth must not be a UMP sanctioned track, because Nick would have called Sam @ UMP and bitched, and he would have been allowed to do whatever he wanted to do.
    I think there should be lifeguards in the genepool.

    Seeing as how Clint was a pretty boy with middling results in his career I doubt it. Dude would be mid-pack.
