Race 1 - 9/3/20


Lap 19- #87 gets into #00 while pitting under green. #87 served his penalty.

Lap 39- entering pit road, #39 and #28 make contact. While #28 moves left into #39, #39 also had rightside tires on the dashed lines that separate the left and right lanes, so #28 is not penalized as #39 could have given more room. No penalty charged #28.

Race 2 - 9/10/20


Lap 18- #24 gets into #711 while pitting under green, but #711 starts to slow in turn 4 and never gets off the racing surface before #24 gets into the back of him. I have to call this on #711. #711 did not serve a penalty so he is docked 1 lap and and placed on the DNQ list for his next race. This incident was protested and after going to the Replay Committee, the call was overturned, so no penalties issued to #711.

Lap 28- #056 bumperhooks himself off the #9 car to start a wreck; #056 served his penalty.

Lap 43- #57 moves down into #143 and causes a wreck; #57 served his penalty.

Lap 49- several cars had a run on the lead group of cars. In that lead group, a check-up happened as the next group of cars caught them. The result was a larger check-up over 10mph and #99 getting into #77. Because of the severity of the check-up, I'm calling this a "racin' deal". We need to get better at calling check-ups out on TEAMSPEAK when they happen to hopefully avoid these wrecks in the future.

Lap 63- #60 slides up and clips #10, sending him into the wall and causing an accident. #63 is scored EOLL.

Lap 63 (2nd incident)- #28 hits the apron and scrubs off 2 mph, and when he comes up, he bumper-hooks #24 into another car, causing a wreck. Incident is charged to #28 as contact happened when #28 came off the banking and back onto the racing surface. #28 is scored EOLL.

There was some contact coming to the yellow to finish the race. Had it not been the finish, we would be more harsh on that contact. No penalties charged outside of the incidents themselves.

ALSO, some drivers never got into the proper finishing positions, thus giving other drivers black flags in the process. We will adjust the finish to what the standings were taken on the final yellow.

Race 4 - 9/24/20


Lap 19- #87 turns down into #94; #87 is charged with the incident and retired. ALSO, while pitting, #011 gets into the back of #710. #710 spins, gathers it back up and doesn't lose any track position, so no penalty is needed.[/color]

Lap 25- #26 moves down into #77 to start a crash. #26 did NOT serve a drive-through penalty so he is docked 1 lap in the final standings and is a DNQ for his next race.

Lap 31- #60 moves into the low lane and gets clipped by #011. Incident is on #60 who served his drive-through.

Lap 40- a check-up results in #77 getting into #711. I have to call this a "racin' deal" as the check-up was well above 5mph and #77 didn't have a chance to avoid it. ALSO, #60 is charged with racing into a wreck. This is the first offense which is a warning and a 10 point penalty. Should it happen again, the next offense would be a 1 race suspension. This is not considered an incident so he did not have to park.

Lap 62- #103 turns down into #43 to cause an accident. This incident ALMOST went on both drivers as #43 had his rightside on the dashed lines that separate the low and middle lanes, but he did not cross the line so I have to put this on #103 only. #103 served his penalty.

AFTER THE CHECKERS, #94 wrecks #710. This is considered Retaliation. This is the first offense which is a warning. Should it happen again, the next offense would be an automatic suspension.

Race 5 - 10/1/20


Lap 13- debris caution; no incident charged.

Lap 22- #103 gets into the back of #011 during a check-up. The check-up was over 5mph so I am calling this a "racin' deal".

Lap 30- #43 tries to throw a block on #77 but is too late in doing so, which causes a wreck. #43 served his penalty.

Lap 39- debris caution; no incident charged.

Lap 40- #710 bumps and spins #011 under caution. #011 did not receive any damage and got his place back in the running order, so no penalty is needed.

Lap 59- a big check-up ends with #13 getting into the back of #57. The check-up was extreme so I can't penalize #13. This will be a "racin' deal".

Lap 65- #056 clips #90 in the exit of turn 4, however, #90 was pinching the low and middle lanes. Incident charged to #90 who is scored EOLL.

Race 6 - 10/8/20


Lap 12- #9 bumper-hooks himself off the car ahead which causes him to lose control, leading to a crash. #9 served his penalty.

Lap 34- #711 spins #13 while entering the pits. The green stayed out, so the penalty is a drive-through the next lap. #711 did not serve that penalty and is docked 1 lap in the final standings.

Lap 34- #55 gets into #710 on pit road while #710 leaves his stall. There was another car coming out right in front of #710. The contact was made in the right-hand lane, which should be for cars going at or near 55 mph. If not for the extra car coming out of the pits, I would have called this on #710, but I feel this is a "racin' deal" as it happened. As a general rule of thumb, PLEASE be sure to use the middle lane for accelerating and decelerating, and as quickly as possible, get up to 55 mph as you make your way to the right-hand lane. This will help avoid contact on a busy pit road.

Lap 51- #43 and #13 make contact on pit road. #43 was coming out of his pit stall. I have to call this a "racin' deal" as #13 was not all the way to the right-hand lane and the contact happened in the middle lane while #43 was getting up to speed exiting his stall. No penalty on either driver.

Lap 58- #39 blows a motor; no incident charged.

Lap 65- #08 and #77 make contact, starting a wreck. Incident is charged to #77 for turning down/crowding #08 on entry. #77 is scored EOLL. This incident was protested and was changed to a "racin' deal". No incidents charged to either driver.

Race 7 - 10/15/20


Lap 19- #08 suddenly lets off the gas or loses speed unexpectedly, causing #28 to hit and spin him. #08 charged with the incident but did not serve a penalty so he is docked 1 lap in the final standings.

Lap 23- #6 is charged with Careless driving for hitting his brakes and slowing down too much and causing multiple cars to hit each other and spin behind him. The caution was not extended and everyone got back into their original position. Had there been substantial damage to any car, this would have been an incident as well, but that did not happen.

Lap 41- While 3-wide, #711 clips #90 to start an incident. #13 had more room on the high side but left just enough room, so I cannot call this incident on him. Incident goes on #711 who served his penalty.

Lap 49- #143 sees a check-up ahead and slows down, then gets hit from behind by #08. I cannot fault #08 as the check-up was a bit early and over 5mph. I am calling this a "racin' deal."

Lap 54- #73 washes up the track and collects #24 and #17; #73 retired.

Lap 66- #57 comes down into #43; incident charged to #57 who is scored EOLL.[/color]
