That was a good pick Bernie.
Unfortuently for montieth, he showed his cards a bit too early to Pittman, cause when he caught him and actually passed him, Pittman reacted and went to the top as well. Heck of a run by the edge yet again, as well as an impressive run from Pittman. Yea, he won from the front row, but he had to earn that victory over those 35 laps. Great night for the "quiet" locals too. Hogue, Seigle and krimes. Did'nt expect much from Billy Dietrich but he timed in the perfect spot giving him the pole in the heat which got him in the show. I'm sure he was happy with that.
And why was'nt Grasso's pit guys in the infield? He might have been the only other car to give Pittman a race.
Way I see it is its a bunch of crap work area was in the infield. not all of our locals have a 15K Mule to bring all their parts over spare wing etc..
I find it hard to believe that Grasso and his crew did not know where the work area was to be located. You do not need a 15K mule to bring the necessary parts from the trailer to the work area, so that argument is weak. I know for a fact that Hodnett, Krimes, MacIntyre, Haas, etc.do not have 15K mules, but they were prepared in the infield.
This was a very hard lesson learned by Grasso.
