also i am not a newcomer to Stock car racing i am in Complete agreement with the fact that something will have to be done to discourage refusal of tech inspections however i am also sure that Ray Mcgee is aware of this i dont believe he needs prompting or quotes from an old Rule Book from big Diamond raceway we found him to be a fair and cooperative person i believe he is quite capable of determining what to do about the situation he did not want to disqualify yet another Driver after hav ing to do so the previous week also dont think that there were not others who were going to refuse i also believe As you do that those Are the rules and should be accepted or pay the consequences these Drivers Are not troublemakers at either track nor do they complain to track officials about other cars and Drivers As a few locals do on a regular basis these opinions Are entirely my own and in no Way reflect those of the Drivers involved of yes one other thing it does not seem fair to ask a
