I can remember Randal Burns waiting a LONG time to get a tow back to the pits from Jesse with the John Deere truck.

Randal is good guy. I just have to poke fun at anyone who drives a Buick.

Billy, on that old Cummins, clean the connector on the fuel shut off solenoid on the injector pump, where the ignition switch on provides 12v+.
That is a common cause of intermittent or steady shut off. Been there, done that!

Yep, Randall is a good guy, first Anti Tour I met him on, he was in like a silver '75 Skylark, had the hood opened doing something and he had a magnetic tray in front of the core support with a assortment of bolts stuck to it, said he kept it there in case he ever lost a bolt when driving, spares were easy to find, lol.

I was trying to explain to a layman yesterday, the difference between a dart, demon, duster, valiant, and Hang Ten. I didn't get very far.

it's not just a GM thing.

(Randal has a Skylark)

Yep, knew it was a Skylark, had a 350 Buick in it. Actually haven't seen him in a couple years, on the Anti Tours.

I was informed wrong on the motor,lol, yeah,last I talked to him he was doing the 6 in the Firebird, was going EFI if I remember right. It was a couple years ago on Anti Tour, at the time he said he might bring it on the next one, but didn't see him.

From the Hot Rod official 2017 Drag Week Rules
Quote:
•All vehicles must be driven under their own power during the entire Drag Week competition and may not be
towed, trailered, pushed, or hauled at any time. The exception is in the event of an emergency in which a
vehicle needs to be removed from the roadway or other dangerous situation, in which case assistance may be
used to move the car a short distance to a safe area, for example, to the next highway exit.

Doesn't say anything about tows on the track. [/quote]

Competitors are allowed to help one another. That rule is for outside help.

Good point, but the part you did NOT quote addresses that very clearly
Quote:

A breakdown on the track would seem to qualify. It doesn't say who can give assistance, or for exactly how long/far. It's up to the Race Director. The incident being discussed
Quote:
Here's another rules question for ya Billy.....or anyone else for that matter.

On day 2, Tom Bailey has an issue on the track, and the car is unable to get back to pits under its own power.
It appears to have gotten a tow back to the pits by the 1320video crew, and they were talking like he might come back for another run(this was before they knew it was doa).

I thought you could only get a tow back to the pits from another competitor, otherwise you are done.

really doesn't create a precedent because the racer dropped out. If he wanted to continue, that could be protested and possibly set the stage for further rule clarification.
Quote:
PROTESTS
•Protesting another racer requires detailing the rule infraction in writing, submitting a $100 fee, and supplying
any evidence, including photos or video. If the protest is upheld or negated by forfeiture, the $100 is returned. If
it is not upheld, the $100 goes to the racer being protested.
I haven't been a competitor, so if you have some behind the scenes info to contribute I'd like to hear/read about it.

As I mentioned previously, the only reason I brought up Tom Bailey getting a tow from the 1320 crew, and wondering if that was "kosher" or not, is because on a different day, another competitor was stuck at the top end looking for some help, and DF and/or Lohnes said on the live feed that if that tow/help came from someone other than another competitor.........they would be out.

I think it's a great point of discussion, but Lohnes and Freiburger are NOT running the show. They can say whatever they want to.

I guess that might be a bit of a problem when the guys in the tower are making the call over the PA system relaying the info that a racer is at the top end in need of a tow, and it has to be another competitor who does the helping, or they're out.

IMO, this is an area of the rules that should be made perfectly clear next year.
