Default sooo, RIP Castrol?



Doubt this will be enough to take them under, but I wonder if there will be any legal fallout out of this or it will just be deemed a "Racing incident"???

My guess would be that the sanctioning body will bare the brunt of any legal proceedings. I can't imagine how this would happen, so I won't speculate. I can imagine that whatever part of the system fell down will be changed so it can't happen again. This is how Motorsports rules (and indeed the law) work ...

from what I've heard, the tractor was in an opposite lane, and pulled U turn after the draggers were already given the green.

Soooo there's a tractor on the drag strip in front of you and you get a green light so you think I'm going to race past it? Is that what happened?

Am I missing something here? This is the tracks fault?
