I totally agree. The so called “outlaws" are the ones responsible for 99% of the bogus rules that were supposed to save car owners money but instead just drove the costs that much higherAbsolutely!! I said this years ago that ,our tracks should have told the outlaws you run by our rules or you won't run here! Instead we make the rules around the outlaws that ended up costing our owners more money. Outlaw shows = Overrated!! Give me a normal Fri-Sat night regular show anytime over "The Greatest Overrated Overpriced Show on Dirt "
I partially agree. Personally, I can see the advantage to having consistent rules at most tracks. To me, the main problem is that by default, it's ONLY the WoO that is currently setting those rules. If instead there were some sort of 410 nationwide rules board where the WoO was only one vote out of many (with promoter and team reps from various tracks making up the rest), you'd still have the advantages of commonality of rules from track to track, but we'd eliminate the current model where the ones setting those rules are the big-buck WoO.
The "tell them to run our rules" idea only works if most of the tracks have the guts to do it all at the same time. If Williams Grove says "No" and Port, Lincoln, Selinsgrove or Susky say "yes", next year, Williams Grove would be right back in line with the WoO. There has to be a unified front nationwide to counter-balance the WoO, or change is not going to happen.
