    Two Wide Start and Re-Start: Drivers have to know HOW to Drive. EXCELLENT Change.
    STANDING STARTS: See Above also makes RACING actually Racing.
    Good Job so far, Randy. Hint, Let Cotman have a clean sheet of paper and Get Rid of BrainFart…
    I was a National Chief Steward for SCCA for quite a few years and also Chief Steward of quite a few LARGE Field Vintage and Historic Races (Pro Status) and the main thing a Ch. Steward needs to learn to say when some “Hot-Shot” or Clown with WAY too much money who bellows “DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?” in your face is to sternly say, “I don’t care if you are Tom Swift and his Electric Dildo, Do tou want to race your car on your Trailor???
    Randy has us on the road BACK, Bear with him. The TV thing will work out. Just keep T.G. and TGBB OUT of the Loop, Put them on the Autograph table, I am sure they can handle THAT… Maybe…
