I believe anyone who was classified in the higher group for the 2014 Eliminator is beyond newbie and should be following current rules.
Weren't we talking about this in 2013?
But in the name of good sportsmanship...
If you have less then 50% tread then maybe you tried and showed up to a few races knowing full well that the 140s were on their way out. If that's the case then I think that, at the very least, no tires with more then 50% tread remaining should be allowed.
(Go burn em up on the street)
Maybe we could have an end date 1/3 of the way through the season before enforcing the 200 tread wear.
Definitely 200 for the Eliminator.
I understand if your in a club that has 4 to 10 events a year, you might stretch the 200 date, but we have over 20 so I don't see how anyone who knew the rule change was coming did not have the chance to burn up some rubber.
Guys running Hoosier while their 140 were sitting on the side lines have no excuse unless you are at VCMC, a national or the Eliminator.
Sorry Ron but buying new 140s in January 2015 just doesn't make a lot of sense to me.
This year it's tires. What next?
Should we give Aaron another year with the STC pax? Poor fella.
