      people only get excessive if they think they can get away with it....
      dutch holland is a good example..it was a mad house last yr...
      if you have a simple rule like welded stock bumpers, with stock
      brackets,then thats that...being consistant help everyone...red bluff
      and yuba have descent, stock rules...and guess what everyone knows
      come stock..or thell tell ya sorry..NO go!!and they have the balls to
      cut after the main..do they miss some?yes..but they are consistant
      and fair..
      hardnosers will rule with rules like turlock..they dont need a front
      bumper...and if you do run one, youd better be preped to loose it the
      first, if not the 2nd night..tearing up 1500.00 cars in 1 run is not
      for the normal derby guys...$$$$$ $$
      i can understand why stock rules like turlock come about.. and its
      good for the sport that they flourish..with cars and attendance..

      and I know, people get excessive, just to push the issue. You push in
      the 5's and weld them, weld brackets (stock) on the frame and to
      brackets to bumper. Thats it. NO making brackets or chevy brackets on
      a lincoln and so on. You and I both know why we put chevy rear
      brackets on the front of the lincolns. Next year at Colusa, will be
      no, bracket modification, either you bend it or take it off. The lins
      are soft in the front if you dont weld/piece or modify a chevy bumper
      bracket.

        how do you know you were first in points? I don't know who is ahead till they add up.  those heats usually run 7-8 mins.  4-5 mins seems a long time.  Maybe that was good. You still transfered, only $75 less than winning, and didn't tear the car up so bad for the main.

        I got black flagged in the main in 2009 for a off the throttle hands off the steering wheel drivers door shot on Mike Hobby by Donny Kelso still kinda irritates me cause I was 1st in points at the time of the flag. I sat for like 4 or 5 mins with 4 cars running and still finished 4th.

        Does anyone remember the last person to get black flagged for a drivers door?  this year my daughter ran in the 80's class. I asked a fat boy to come and watch that I flagged right. Everyone bitched about him "getting in there".  My kids won't drive again. I have a Cordoba for sale.

        Turlock derby has not been running a fair show for some years now. I really don't think it has to do with special donations, the officials have their own favorites. My family donates money every year, and I don't get special treatment. The officials allow please to team me every year I have ran. Again this year certain people were allowed to have certain things that others couldn't have. I have always had issues with the conflict of interest stuff that goes on. I don't think it's right to have a immediate family member of a promoter/official run the derby. The official should not participate in any part of the derby, if a family member is a driver. I think all drivers want right now is a fair and clean shows, leaves the politics to the guys in Sacramento and don't bring corruption to our sport!
