Un phuckin real!

I don't care what tree it is, Pro Tree, Full Sportsman Tree, fucking PINE TREE! KNOW THE RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If courtesy staging is not enforced and I want to DEEP STAGE, I will double-bulb my opponent. WHY? Because my TWO BULBS ON is MY PRESTAGE! My opponent has ALL DAY to turn his Pre Stage on at that point. Once he does that, he has 7 or 10 seconds to STAGE. That time depends on the type of tree and the track. Pretty simple guys!

If I was driving a car/bike in a pro class and wanted to fuck with people I would double-bulb my opponents from time to time. Look what John Force does to people when he Deep Stages. Some take it personally, like an insult. What the fuck, really? He is making his lane "shorter" gaining some RT and losing some ET. His choice, and could cost him lane choice in the next round. Everyone is free to do it. Kinda hard to red light with a nitro combo............. Pro Stock Bike, Pro Stock Car, none of them want to roll in Deep, they would most likely be red unless they setup their clutch pedal for that............

I've seen people who are 'track managers' not understand how a bye run works and try to give the win to his bf because "my computer shows no run was made so that guy wins". Then get so worked up they hit the golf cart instead of me. Good choice. So it comes in all aspects of racing . No need to get worked up over it.

They enforce Courtesy Staging, so yes, no double-bulbing. It is in the rules, so everyone knows what they are dealing with.

The timing systems have not changed for the 30 years I have been racing in Division 1, primarily with tracks using Compulink. Lebanon Valley uses Portatree, but their system operates the same as Compulink in regards to Staging Time Out, random tree activation once both lanes are staged, etc..............

Nothing happens until 3 bulbs are lit, OR, one lane is Staged and the other is Pre-Staged (one is Deep).

I do what I need to do in order to get in if I plan on Deep Staging, and yes, I have DEEP written on both of my side windows so everyone knows what I am doing.

Again, if I double-bulb someone THEY ARE IN CONTROL!

How can people NOT understand that...........

Its a little different on a bike, getting your fet set and all. Just like Alan R. said at the track on Sunday, never seen anyone do this on a bike.
