I have no problem with a track making money for survival. I get it. It isn't an easy business and it gets harder by the day. I am thankful for the men and women that work at the tracks even though I disagree with quite a few of them from time to time.
That said, don't urinate on my leg and tell me it is raining. If the purpose of the change is to make the track money, then dammit...say it.
But don't lie about it.
Don't tell me and everyone else this move is to stop cheating because I can find just as many ways to cheat now as I could before. I raced for 22 years under various sanctioning bodies. I'll admit to doctoring fuel a handful of times to attempt to qualify or qualify better. If anyone thinks that just by requiring that you buy your fuel at the track that you can stop this you are fooling yourselves. I could list 15 different ways and situations that even with a "buy your fuel at the track rule" it is just as easy to doctor it.
A rule that is unenforceable is not a good rule. The one and only way to make sure fuel is not doctored is to check the car as soon as it goes out on or comes off the track. Even so, there are ways around that too.
This is a money grab and nothing more. If that's what they need to do to turn a profit, fine. Do us all a favor and just say it instead of making my pants leg wet.
