Coned all his runs. He would have held ground (but not gained) had he run clean.afghan said:Results are Up!
Good Job Jeff 6th Place! (Trophy)
Sorry to see Aaron slip back. Weather?
Fill us in when you can.
What Allen and McCrispin did CLEARLY violated good gamesmanship, not to mention, they should have been disqualified from the entire event IMO for trying to gain a CLEAR competitive edge through a mechanical. I would hope that at least, McCrispins run would also be disqualified since he ran a good 10-15 minutes after he should have. I gaurantee you it was a team decision by the two to attempt a delay by calling a mechanical. Heck, I could have changed my tires 3 times between runs if I had to!!!Bill Loring said:From what I heard, a protest was upheld against Mark Allen. Apparently he had called a mechanical to change his tires, just before he was scheduled to run. This is not yet reflected in the posted results, but was posted at the protest shed, from what I am told.
FYI, I managed to change my tires between 1st and 2nd runs (thanks in part to a bit of help from Jason Minehart!), and the guys gridded before and after me also changed their tires between runs. No mechanical was required.
I read the supps, and it seemed pretty clear to me that asking for a mechanical to change tires during drying conditions would be frowned upon by the officials, not to mention the rest of the competitors.
