Why take a stand? Right now one car owner, and a few die hard fans are upset. I'd guess a huge percentage of the people at the track today do not, and will never know. So few people care that it doesn't matter.

 

 Admitting that cheaters win is bad publicity. 

 

 

Pretty sure that car failed tech after one of the earlier races, too. It was interesting watching him trying to break the scales after being found light. 

 

And yet I sat in one corner with four other sportsman racers who all know that following the rules will result in not qualifying, so why bother?

I know the owner joe and I say he is a tad more than upset.
But if I am getting the the jist of what u saying is u may as damn well cheat cause u can get away with it anyway.

If someone is found to be illegal, then the highest finishing legal car should be declared the winner, and should get all points and money owed to the race winner. This crap about taking away money but not the win has got to stop. So the guy who really should win takes second place points and money, where does the winner's share go? Right into DIRT's pocket I have to assume, which is just plain wrong in every way.

 

All that said, I thought I read somewhere else that the winner was actually found to be legal and money and points returned, can anyone confirm this?

I would be livid. I didn't intend to demean the insult he has received. 

 

Crate racing is supposed to be affordable. Clearly, cheating makes it less so. DIRT won't be doing anything about it. That leaves car owners with a decision: Cheat, lose, or quit. Not a good position to be in.

you guys that think that Dirtcar puts on this massive week long event just to "steal" the winner's payout are a joke.  grow up.  past winner's share money that was withheld was added to the series points fund and split up among the top 15 drivers.

yes, it would be best if all finishing positions moved up one spot on a dq but if you follow the sport and pay attention to the rules you would know that only happens when a guy is light on the scales.  when a guy clears the scales and is announced to the public as the winner yet later fails tech we have the result that happened today.  this is nothing new.  it happens all the time.  as long as it is consistent and the sanctioning body explains what will happen with that winner's money then there is really no grounds for screaming and crying about it.

they wont do anything about it?  pretty sure someone got dq'd today.  we hear about dq's all the time. last year a 358 driver was suspended for a whole year for a cheated rev box.  what do you want - public executions?

Grow up? How bout if the guy that should be the winner cause he didn't cheat doesn't follow the series? So he loses out. He ain't getting nothing outta that 1st place money put into the point fund. Sound fair? Didn't think so.

Sorry, I do not care what the rules are (nor was I aware they had such a rule) but the first legal car across the line IN ANY SERIES should be declared the winner of the race. No argument will ever change my mind on that.

DIRT thinks there NASCAR by not taking the win away. 

Nascar doesn't take a win away because they don't want fans leaving the track thinking a driver won, only to find out on Monday that they didn't. Lame excuse!

 

Cheaters shouldn't get Sh*t. Just there name on the bottom of the results page with a big DQ next to it!

If the chip didn't get him, the 4 inch exhaust should have, or even the big cam in that thing (anyone else hear it rolling through the pit area? obvious much?)

Where in the DRIPCAR rule book does it state what size the exhaust must be?? they state the header spec and muffler size and spec. but no where do i see what the tailpipe size is required? as for the big cam? why didnt any of the other 50+ sportsman teams say anything to DRIPCAR about it if they felt it was an issue? the racers are their own worst enemy.

I think I should just not comment on this. I didn't build a car for Syracuse, and I wasn't racing. So this really has no effect on my life.
