Again, facts from one of the track's officials who, despite 111's opinion, really cares about the teams that come to our track every week and respects the money car owners spend doing it.
I try to stay in the vicinity of cars being repaired with hopes of returning to the track in that event or the next one. The chief flagman also cares and had the tower wait to start the ten-minute clock until the 19m had been towed to its pit area, not when the heat race was checkered. That probably gave them an additional five minutes. I kept the team alerted to how much time remained and then how many laps were on the pace truck. The ten minutes were up before the truck completed the three laps, after which cars are no longer permitted to enter the track. But the flagman waited as long as he could, asking me for updates all the while. There is another minute or so. When the pace truck had completed its laps, I was asked if the 19m was ready by the track's general manager. It wasn't, every time allowance we could extend to the 19m had expired and weather was threatening, so we went racing.
So as you can see, the 19m actually did receive more than ten minutes - perhaps as many as seven extra minutes. That's a 70% over-allowance and the track's general manager was even involved. I fail to see how the track deserves to be criticized for its handling of the 19m's dilemma. Do we make mistakes? Sure and so does 111 and the officials at other tracks. 111 forgets or may not know that I used to work at Lincoln - I saw numerous faux pas at that track, too.
I love how you refer to my facts
as "my opinion," but you also think randomly pulling numbers out of a hat (draw racing) is a good idea, so no point arguing with you. Referencing factual, defined mistakes as "opinion" says all it needs to about how you view officiating at the track. And please, name some recent instances in which Lincoln made any comparable mistakes to the several Williams Grove (you?) have. I can't think of any, maybe those "faux pas" only took place back when you were there (...).
