I just want to clear this up. I have sponsored RS since 2011 with giving 5 gal of fuel to each winner and 55 gal to the champ that chose to run my sticker which most did. I want everyone to know that I had stated To Mitch Danford that I would sponsor RS in 2017 just as I have since 2011 with 5 gal to each winner but with fuel sales being down the last few years that it would be hard for me to give 55 gal to the champ. At the RS meeting at Cottonwood Dragway Mitch Danford spoke for me and stated what I had told him. I'm not sure exactly how it went after that but from what I been told Ricky Presley asked Geoff Gibson if he wanted to sponsor anything. With me leaving the door open Geoff Gibson has stepped up to sponsor 5 gal to each winner and 55 gal of 110 to the champ. At this point I feel like I have been pushed out and treated like a dirty rag. I just want to say Thank You to all the ones that have supported me over the years in RS and I wish you good luck in 2017. Always remember if you want the Best Buy the best Outlaw Racing Fuels. Thank you

I don't give a shit about Mitch 's scoop or Robin riveted windows or Scotty 's 28 w but what was nice is this race paid 3100.00 dollar purse with just 10 cars ... I see you didn't support the race . Is your car not fast enough for the 5.50 index? See you at some 6.0 races .

I give a shit about the rules. If they're not going to matter, why have them? It's stupid.

And I worked on my car until almost 10 Friday night to have it ready to race. Woke up Saturday morning and forcast wasn't promising. Decided I'd save my money and not drive 2.5 hours to get rained out then drive home in thunderstorms. Kinda had my family that would've been riding with me in mind when I made that decision there too. Nitrous supplier says he's out too so I would be up the creek if I came down there and wasted nitrous to get rained out first round.

My car is plenty fast enough for 5.50. It's close enough where I'll just cut the tree down on all of y'all like I did on my way to 3 wins last year with my completely legal to the rules car on 28 true 10.5 tire

We know you don't give a shit Geoff , but they may as well not have any fucking rules cause that's where it's headed.

An illegal to the rules car has won the last two championships, how's that even possible? Throw away the rules or start enforcing them

It's getting away from the spirit of the class. Now the rules just got cut in half. And for what? Less cars to have to beat? After every rule change there's less and less cars. Call me wrong on that, please. Eventually sponsors will take note and start to dip out too.

But I'm not going to just sit and home. It's not going to be my fault. I already gave my concerns as to why I wasn't there this weekend. But I'm not going to miss another one. I'll be paying my $100 to join points too

Back half cars are allowed now along with w's shit this class has went to shit!!! Who in the hell cant run a number on stock suspension... 5.50 bracket nationals and we all know that this class is heading to the ground. Been surviving this long with the old rules what the fuck is the gain from changing the rules.. plain and simple if you fags want to run real street buy the right tires not change rules.. grow some nuts and put some 28 or 275s on your shit and race. Not a damn 31x10.5 w... what the hell

Don't be trashing people who have always supported the class. Brett's car is a very well built car. Beautiful car. He doesn't have the money or the partner some people have... but he does the work himself. His motor may not be the fastest thing out there but he has busted everyone's ass and won a few races last year.
