I hate to be the spoiler here but IIRC, we are not recognizing track records this year because of the open tire rule so unless someone tells me otherwise, I'm not sure your record has been beat (that was set on Toyos).Ed :mrgreen:


Ed,

How can you not allow the track record to stand? Hoosiers were legal tires in 2011. Rules change every year. AI rules have changed for 2012...are you not going to allow lap records to stand because the GM guys got a power break or the non ABS guys got a weight break? If NASA switches to Hoosier in 2016 are you going to go back and allow the record from 2011 to stand? When Indy switched from Turbos to Crapcars...did they not allow Arie Luyendyk's lap record to hold? What about when NASCAR switched to the COT and ran the rear wings. Did the track records not hold because they ditched it for the old spoiler?

Not busting your chops but the lap record was broken with a legal car on legal tires. NASA and the Regions need to let the track records stand from 2011.

iirc the track record question was addressed when the tire issue first came up. it was decided that if tires were left open or moved to a sticky tire brand that new records would stand. if the series returned to toyo as expected/hoped, any track record on a non toyo would not stand. or am i wrong?

As of April, Todd's published position was:

Quote:
Any track records obtained by tires other than Toyo, will get an asterisk along with the open tire used. Asterisk (*) Track records will be a temporary problem. If we return to Toyo RA1's, the asterisk records will go away. If we move to a new spec tire, only the spec tire track record is allowed to stand.


So, since AI is back on Toyo's, track records earned on non-Toyo tires are removed from the books.

Well said and well quoted. Published position remains...objection, overruled. :D

(Wow...even the thread titled "New Class - Mustang Challenge" is talking about tires!!! Who is the moderator around here!!! :wink: )
