So did everyone have to weigh twice?
Isn't the weight for the test of the crate 2350?
Do you go by IMCA rules?

The weight rule was changed yesterday to 2450. Luke scaled the first time at 2445, then scaled again and was 2450. The officials said they wanted to take the first because that was what they wanted to do. Even tho the second time was legal

I talked to Tom G today. Luke won at Marshalltown Friday night at the regular 2450# minimum weight, 6400 chip and a 3" spoiler, the same configuration as at Harlan last night. That was the plan for testing for this weekend.
Tom told me if he was light the first time they should've pushed him back to reweigh right then or go around to the end of the scale line to reweigh before going to victory lane. They can't let him go to victory lane out of their control, have someone throw a wet towel or something in the car, then drive through any mud he could find and then reweigh.
The tech guy had called Tom about the deal before I talked to him and he was an official DQ and got last place points according to the tech guy.

Ok I'll accept it. Sounds good just didn't understand why he got his trophy and picture if he was light.

Yep IMCA and SCS bs. Black and white rules. Everybody weighs on the same scale. Light is fast but cautions can hurt you also better to be safe than push the issue.

And just a question. If you run at I-80 or Corning or anywhere else that has a weight rule and they are light is that track a joke also? Rules are rules and they need to be followed, make exceptions throw the rule book out the window.
