This is a quote from the Stans Transmission Facebook page posted last night directed at Rush Director Vicki Emig. The 60m car, fielded by Stans Transmission did not pass pre-race inspection Friday night at Lernerville for the touring series event and as a result chose to load up and go home. I have heard many different reasons that they did not pass tech, most of which I believe, however anyone close to the car simply states that body dimensions were the problem. If you fielded a car in this race and your body dimensions were off wouldnt you fix it and race? Something doesnt seem right here.
Given the history that the team has on asphalt and recently on dirt I wouldnt be surprised if all the reasons I was provided that the car failed tech were true. Obviously its much more than a dimension issue. I couldnt make it out to PPMS last night because I was at the Lucas race (Congrats to Josh), but we all know how the tech is there. Given the circumstances Id say its safe to assume theyve been illegal all year. On a side note, a driver refused a tear down at Roaring Knob and was disqualified.
This brings me to my main point. Rush races need to be teched consistently and looked into much more than just the surface. People cheat, when they cant win and have the best of the best thats what they are going to do. But these people need to be caught regardless of their name or how much money they make and they need to be banned from the series. Crate late models are so diverse in price. Any given night I bet theres a $50,000+ crate out there and and some that cost $10,000 or less. By allowing people to cheat and get away with it your only hurting the latter part of that group that comes out and supports you week to week. Which is why so many have left and joined fastrak and currently it looks like the Rush Late Model Touring Series has 6 followers. If tech and racing were officiated properly this would not be the case (jumping starts, dirty driving, etc).
Hey Vicki. Stand up and take action.
Are you and other Rush officials going to stand there and allow a race team to taunt you? Are you going to allow them to continue to cheat and flaunt their money? They are a team of cocky, arrogant a**holes who clearly do not belong in this series. Take action and stand behind the weekend warriors who bring a legal car to race under your sanction to the track every week.
The weather looks great for the Freedom 50 tonight and will hopefully continue at Muskingum tomorrow evening. Congrats again to Josh Richards and the Best Performance Motorsports team and good luck tonight!
