Race without getting banned?!?!?!? You've got to be kidding me. lol He walked away from the other classes because they wouldn't let him race lite.
He walked away because at the time he entered the sanctioning body, his car fit their
rules. But, as usual, he wins a few races and the bitching by the other racers starts. He was gettng a huge weight break because he was using a nitrous motor. The rule makers thought (before Glidden) nitrous motors had a big disadvantage against the turbo and blower cars. So, he took advantage of the rules that were written and legally dominated the class. While the bitching continued, they had to change the rules so that meant he had to change his car. I would have said, "screw that" also. Why make the winner change? I say make the slower cars change. But, the rule makers don't see it that way.
Glidden does not enter in a class and define the rules. He enters in a class, follows the rules, wins a few races, they change the rules because of all the bitching, he finds somewhere else to race.
He found a place were he can race and not worry about anything.
Not worry about anything yet.....
BTW, who is this "we?" Do you have a mouse in your pocket?
"We" as in the other people I race with, go to races with, discuss racing, and building cars with. Who else would I be talking about?
All Cleveland used to be a tech at one of the local mud racing tracks. He can tell you just exactly how the blind loyal chevrolet idiots act when a Ford legally dominates a class. To the contrary, I have never seen or heard the Ford or Mopar guys whine and bitch when any other brand wins. Wonder why it seems like its always the chevrolet lovers? I know why, because they are spoiled little bitches who pitch a fit whenever they don't get something their way. Fair and equal racing to them have no meaning. Dale Earnhardt proved that.
But I would imagine that those guys still race regular 10.5 outlaw stuff were you must weigh at least 3000lbs.
So they run their cars in another class where there is no weight minimum, and allow Glidden to dominate because they don't want to bother to remove the weight? Yeah right. I bet that's what's happening.
