Lucas Oil – 2015 Lake Elsinore #2 Round 6 Final Event Post-Race Report
During the pro-buggy race we had a reported incident between the spotter for the 65 and the spotter for the 33. This incident has not been settled and is still being investigated.
During the Pro-2 race an altercation occurred in the spotters stand between the spotter for the 99 and the spotter for the 2. Harsh words were exchanged the spotter for the 2 will be placed on probation indefinitely and will be suspended from the spotters stand for the rest of the 2015 race season. Any further infractions will result in additional disciplinary action by the series, which may include up to permanent expulsion from the series.
During the Pro-2 race the 99 admitted to making intentional contact with the 2 causing the 2 to loose positions and resulting in the 99 receiving a black flag for the contact for rough driving. Because the driver of the 99 made the contact intentionally he will be placed on probation indefinitely and has been disqualified from this round of racing for the intentional contact. Any further infractions will result in additional disciplinary action by the series, which may include up to permanent expulsion from the series.
Reminder, all Pro class drivers given or shown a black flag will serve a stop and go penalty for rough driving. Any driver who earns 2 black flags in any race will not be permitted to continue. If a Pro driver, already on Probation is given or shown the black flag that driver will serve a (2) two-lap penalty at minimum. All spotter conduct must be sportsmanlike. Once a truck is presented in Tech and or staging to engage in competition, if the spotter is deemed to be displaying unsportsmanlike conduct, the driver will be removed from competition immediately. Professionalism is the only accepted behavior that will be tolerated in the spotters stand, on track or in the pit area.
