Mitch how many said that you had to have the AHFS in place for Indy. It was the one race that would make the AHFS work. How many went 1.20 last year 0 nada. How many received HP because of Indy again 0 nada. What happened? It would be nice if they at least did it every other year. BP

Forget about reversing the rules that have been bastardized for the past thirty years, but enforcing the rule book as it's written today in my mind is his core responsibility.
How does he do this with the current resources he has?
Frank, I'm happy we have someone in there that seems to really care and is willing to listen. And wants to do a good job. You can't make everyone happy. Tec is a tough one. These guys like us are getting older and how many people want to work12 hrs a day, three or four days in a row and get paid circus peanuts. You can't go back to the old rules and make most of everyone stuff junk. I'd like to see a little more punishment for those that are caught with the wrong parts on their cars. Just taking that race away is not going to deter anyone from doing it. Go back to the time has to meet the crime. BP

That's right, they need to get the wrong parts approved by NHRA first, so that the wrong parts are suddenly the right parts. Its like magic.

OK, so let me get this straight, "you can't go back to the old rules"? What OLD RULES? Cylinder head and intake porting isn't legal in the current rules!
If a Racer isn't adhering to the "current rules" should they not be punished and shouldn't their not currently legal "stuff" be junk?

We can't "go back to the old rules" when it comes to a Racers "stuff" that would become "junk" but it's OK to "go back to the old rules" when it comes to punishing the "crime"?

Barry, I have ABSOLUTELY NO IDEA what you're trying to say or do!
What I'm getting out of this is that it's not legal for me to rob your store but if I've robbed stores before then it's OK.

Barry, are you a NYC District Attorney in real life?

What Barry means is that Shop Lifting is no longer a punishable crime. Just kidding!

Thought Californica was the only state that’s “legal” in?

Sorry Billy I never said anything about porting. The rules I'm talking about are the cam rules, rocker arm, piston, rod, crank, block, lifter, heads, ect. By the way my store that I no longer own had been robbed twice. No one was ever prosecuted for it. Billy you're starting to remind me of a news commentator. You take one line and jump on it. Then add words that weren't there so to fit your narrative and act like I said it. BP

Yes Barry I raced an A/SA Max Wedge Belvedere during the Stein/LeBrun/Dvorak/Leopold Era and very proud of our competitiveness. We didn't win a Divisional or National Event but always qualified well, frequently in the top 16, went rounds but came up short of the ultimate prize.
As a "kid" in the sixties and seventies all I wanted to accomplish was to race with the big dogs in the Land of NED, and I did.
I very much appreciate the opportunity and will never forget it. It's always been my passion.
