Great point and there are many examples where we things can be made better. We must understand some of the following points...

1) its Not anybodies fault

2) Many of the problems exist simply because teams NEVER get together to DISCUSS the issues they face...of course this is only my opinion. Also keep in mind drivers getting together can not only help themselves but can brainstorm to help tracks & promotors remain profitable. Some on here believe drivers/owners getting together would place a gun to the head of the tracks & associations....i say NO Way ! Tracks & associations can also reach out to the Proposed driver/owner association
with problems THEY are having...drivers and team owners do have concerns but we all SHOULD note that tracks, promoters & associations have issues that concern them too...for example:

a) racers at events tend to take more space then allowed
b) sometimes trash not properly disposed off
c) hazzardous fluids/oils sometimes not properly handled
d) racers sometimes don't do the best they can to make sure their cars are 100% ready before hitting the water box
e) racers sometimes don't present the best image by not utilizing crew shirts etc.
f) racers sometimes forget 90% of us race as a hobby....its our passion, we don't make money but spend a fortune because it makes us happy...we must realize that those that support our "hobby" are entitled to make a living and this is their Job, not their hobby.

Please note I'm all for the racer and as a racer i'm guilty of some of the points mentioned above. The point of listing those things above is simply to point out a driver/owner association can benefit ALL parties and help all parties work together to meet the following goals...

a) solve problems thru communicaton & compromise
b) make drag racing more fun & interesting
c) find ways to grow our sport, bring in more people and give those people a better show ! We need to get into all our local schools and get kids out of gangs and onto raceteams which can
offer some of the same things gangs offer...team, us against them !
e)We NEED rivalries in drag racing...in todays drag racing world rivalries now take place behind keyboards where most fans can't see...its okay to use a keyboard to support a rivalry but it should not be the main part of it. Last word on rivalry...it doesn't have to be personal so no hard feelings...for example you blower and Nitrous guys don't have a prayer against Turbo Teams and You Pro Extreme Screw Blown guys better start crossing off the days on your calenders cause you don't have many left before Turbo Pro X teams take your Lunch ! We need Buzz and if we all can get together to establish basic ground rules on such then we can take drag racing too the MOON ! Rule #1 at the end of the day after the final round we must come together as one and if we can't then we either figure out WHY NOT or deal DIES...

If we can't get everybody together we will NEVER get back to the heyday of drag racing where drag racing was seen on national TV on Wide World of Sports with Howard Cossell !
