I don't remember hearing any complaints when KJ threw a race for WJ that helped win a championship. KJ even held up a sign going down the return road that said " At least I still have a job."

Losing purposely is shenanigans. Trying to get paired up with the leader in the points in an attempt to affect the points isn't shenanigans. It's just racing. I had a guy one year chasing me to the lanes last night for the championship but missed getting paired up by a couple cars. So he asked the guy I was paired with if he could get in his spot in the lanes, the guy I'm paired with asks me if he should let the guy in, I said sure let him in!

That's racing, there's no shenanigans in it IMO. Losing purposely is probably more than shenanigans, it's borderline being a prostitute IMO, especially if you're paid.

Wish I could find the Energizer Bunny to post...
Still going... Big Grin
Elite= 1/3 of the field
Summit= “ “
Magaha= “ “
If not cars, then motor rental.
If any of you think either team would not have done the same thing- you are mistaken. Put yourself in their position. Not much of a Team if they don’t. I think the way it played out was bad AZZ. Not worthy clapping


Raceless in California!

To be the best you have to beat the best. That's true across the board to include strategy.

The fun didn't end there. I tell the guy to let him in and I go up there and lose 1st round. I hit the buy back window, poured some fuel in the car and drove to the front of the staging lanes stopping by the guys pit who just beat me pointing at the front of the staging lanes. He jumps in his car and I pull up first car out in the right lane, putting him in the left lane figuring if I couldn't get him in the left I'd try the right LoL. That didn't work out to good either, same race as the first, we're both better than 15 total and I'm a couple thousandths behind giving it back in the second race. He had to make sure I didn't win a round and he had to win 7th round to be Super Pro Champion. He won the battle but lost the war 5th or 6th round. No drama just good racing. The dude was there to race, you can't fault anyone for that.
