Not only were they allowed to race, they were INSTRUCTED to race by the official starter. The drivers chose to not race.


Makes some sense but remember we have short fields. If you are paying attention then you already know PS has a lot less time in the lenses now. Things are way different now. That is the most cars they have had in a while!

They should do it more often-- even to those who choose to do the gloves, face shield, goggles, face shield again, tighten seat belts, slap a bug or whatever AFTER their burnout but before pre staging just to kill time while the other guy waits. And do it every time.

Bruno wants drama. He got the ultimate drama, he got sent off the island on TV. Great decision by the starter or whoever ordered it.

I agree with Luke [last ND article]foolishness that seldom brings the desired result.I have seen idiots do it in time trials wasteing everyones time so they can be seen.If I'm in the water or at the ready line I'm pizzed.Stage first,stage last I don't care just stage for crying out loud!

Lame... Just stage the car... Waste of everyone's time.

Those guys could have idled until they ran out of fuel. The starter was probably just tired of their BS.

Everybody seems to think the fans love staging duels.

1) There ain't any fans at bracket races, only pissed off drivers sitting in hot cars in line behind the dumbasses

2) Hs anybody actually polled any fans at national events as to how popular "staging duels" are? Because I can see cars idling from the airconditioned comfort of my Suburban while driving around town, and it's free.

Or, stated another way, a staging duel is kinda like the light turning green in traffic, but the dumbasses at the head of the line just sit there because they're staring at their phones.

Some were saying the call came down from the tower to boot them. Not true. Brad said himself he made the call. I for one agree with it

"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.

It is his starting line and he runs it. They just have to deal with it.

Brads always been very fair. He paid attention!

Pro stock can barely get any TV coverage. The only real Pro class there is. No one usually talks about PS and now there are 3 pages of it on here and no telling how much conversation elsewhere. To say that these are 2 nobody's is quite asinine. Eddie Krawiec is the perfect example. He made people hate him just to have people talking about PS motorcycle.
