to make positive change.
I’m sick of seeing people voice opinions on things that do not affect them.
The answer to every rule problem is right in front of you.

I’m going to inject a little logic here so beware. 3 riders sign up to race class. 2 o0f the 3 are there just to race the open so they dont even touch the gate. The 3rd rider is screwed. Have I gotten the story so far?
The first response to this is to see if the screwed rider can combine into a different class, correct? Obviously, that wont work.
OK – here comes the logic……
MAKE THYE OTHER 2 RIDERS COMPETE. Notice I did not say touch the gate or pump race or any other crappy way of getting around the rules. If someone is entered in a moto and purposely loses, that is sandbagging. Enforce the rules. Do not make a guy attemt to change motos, that does not solve the problem.
Remember, there were other riders that had to race class too. Jeremy Knapper had to RACE cruiser, Rich Farside had to race too. Why is this tolerated? It isn’t even one of the golden riders of NJ that did this.
Logical solution: Anyone determined to be sandbagging in their class is disqualified from both class and the open.
see, now that didn’t hurt, did it?May 23, 2007 at 10:58 pm #45389
I understand how the rules work, but it is clearly unfair to the am’s who have to race class, while the pro’s are well rested.That is my only real issue. I feel the am’s should have the same chance as the pro’s in this case. BTW one of my riders can’t wait to turn 16. —May 23, 2007 at 11:05 pm #45390
O.K. let’s try it again. Jeremy Knapper raced class in all 3 state qualifiers, raced open in all 3 races also. Last time I checked he was in the money all three races. What fair?Plus WHAT DOES THIS ARGUMENT have to do with what happened? maybe I missed something.May 23, 2007 at 11:29 pm #45393
Yes jeremy did it, but maybe not all the other am’s can. BUt there is not a whole lot that can be done about it so we have to play by the rules. For now. —May 23, 2007 at 11:35 pm #45395CrazyCraigMember
Jeremy did back off in moto #2 & #3 in cruiser on Sunday. He rolled the track after the 1st turn.
I understand Dave’s intent, and support it fully, but it does set a weird precedent. If he is allowed to move out of his moto, where technically he had 3 riders, then others may ask to jump around.
The issue lies in the two that did not show up. Every moto that they do not touch the gate for class is an auto dq for the pro-am. Even if they did touch the gate, Dave still might have gotten a free pass.
There may not be an easy solution to this. Maybe the solution is to not demand that you must race class in order to race the open. It won’t hurt the moto count that much, at least not right now. It just might hurt the rolling ATM.
