I totally agree about the need to discipline “rough” drivers but wander where are the race officials in all this. If someone is driving rough, park them!

Too many officials are too nice and don’t want to anger their friends. This is especially true at the club level. Yet, even at the national level, you have officials that won’t make the damn call.

Couple that with parents and other team people that tell their kids to do whatever it takes to get up front and you have no race craft.

I hope the bumpers work. Anything that keeps drivers from running over other drivers — whether intentional, stupidity, or just a lack of racecraft — will help eliminate rough driving.
