Bob


so you don't think jeg would have done this to win his SG championship if need be?

ep-I think he is confident enough in his ability to not be afraid to run the #2 guy at the time

that would have made for great tv race fans.

in my opinion she should have said it takes three of them b1tches to beat me. then she would have earned some of my respect. don't cry about the qualifying sheet.

ep-Fuzz told me one time he was going to follow me up......and he did. I respect that


Bingo! J

Nobody has every followed someone up into the lanes to take a stab at them late in the season for the hail mary? He did what he had to do. She did also!

....and as far as the Force team trying to "set up" the outcome of the race, we could also look at the 2nd round Capps/Beckman match up!!! Hmmmm....

Or, we could discuss whiney Steve T's outburst after round 1. Except instead of just whining this time about how "NHRA's Countdown System" wasn't fair when Brittany won, he punches his 1st round opponent in the face for staging TOO slowly but within the requirements. Haven't seen anything from NHRA on this,....yet!

The NHRA is disappointed in the situation that occurred between Steve Torrence and Cameron Ferre after the first round of Top Fuel competition at the Auto Club NHRA Finals. We are evaluating the matter and any potential penalties will be assessed after a thorough review.

After the Awards or? Penalty to be assessed next year on kickoff?

Or - sit on a stool in the corner, with a pointed hat on!!!

It will be interesting to see what they come up with, but at least it shows they are "aware" of the impact of the occurrence on their fan-base. I've heard there's a bunch of comments on Twitter, almost all negative!

I like both Erica Enders and Greg Anderson. I do not blame him for swinging for the fences and putting his fate in his own hands. No problem at all.

As for the deal about Steve Torrence I wish he did not do it but not a big deal. I think the people making a big deal about him did not like him before. By the way I like both Britney Force and Steve Torrence. No problem at all.

"Dunning-Kruger Effect"
-a type of Cognitive bias where people with little expertise or ability assume they have superior expertise or ability. This overestimation occurs as a result of the fact that they do not have enough knowledge to know they don't have enough knowledge.

Before you argue with someone ask yourself, "Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of a different perspective?" If not there is no point to argue.

Actually, I kind of liked Steve, and his dad, before this all happened.... I wonder how his dad feels about all this?

It's ironic that the two biggest "controversies" in our sport stem from things that are PERFECTLY LEGAL. Roll Eyes

I'm not a GA fan, I'm not even a Pro Stock fan anymore so I do not care. But!

I have zero issue with what he did. This is a sport that winning matters. as long as you don't break the rules you must do everything you can to win. You owe it to your fans, sponsers and to yourself. Never give up!

GA made a mistake, should have never talked about it.

No issues with what GA did to try and pair with EE in 1st round. Hell, it's actually quite a feat just to make it happen. I was just glad that he brought it first round and made a race of it.

I felt like his pre race description was fine. You don't have to like a competitor to have respect for their skills. I'm sure GA recognized that EE is a great driver.

I'm not a huge fan of either, but I do admire that the Summit team pretty much still crew chief their own cars.

Bingo

And, for those that think Ferre was Slow staging, that did not happen. If you watch the broadcast in real time, he followed Torrence in on both bulbs within about 2 or 3 seconds. No games there.

He did admit to deep staging intentionally, and that was a legal move. No foul there either.

Torrence appeared to have bad intentions when he got out of his car, calling Ferre a little boy.

Those are all facts, take away what we want, Ferre was trying to win the round, as a little old SC racer, I totally agree with him going for it. Us little people should never "get out of the way" like T Ped said. Every round has to be won, one at a time.

Agree on all accounts. I don't think their work season during or outside the season can be denied either. those guys pretty much get after it to get it done. It's earned IMO.

Force has thrown a race twice now during the BS countdown, and just pawns it off as business, no integrity in that camp. And no response from the organization. Goes to show WHO you are matters more than what your transgression was, no integrity there either.

I kinda think so as well. Suddenly what I thought was an open hand face push turns into a full fledged sucker punch. I don't think that is completely accurate. It was a **** move. But let's not get carried away.....because we want to.
Let's turn it around. Lets say the kid open hand face shoved Steve. We don't know what was said before hand. How do we handle this one?

Kinda strange Enders team would object to Anderson coasting in order to get in position qualifying to pair up first round. A less
maladaptive emotional approach would have been for Enders team to tell Anderson ,,, "That's a smart move I hope you're successful"

This kind of stuff goes on at the local level on the last race, it's normal (par for the course). It's then you really get see what a man is made of. I've seen everything from racers immediately resorting to shenanigans to straight up grown men there to race and let the chips fall where they may. You never wanna openly object to anything that is straight up racing or shenanigans though because everyone in the race is well aware of who is flying straight and who isn't. And that's good enough. So I'd say Anderson got the better of the Enders team in qualifying, if Enders team did indeed object.

Hell you wanna earn it by taking on all challengers, not back into winning it.
