If the techs were saying before the race a few guys would be DQ'd. They should have told those guys and I am sure Ryan Beckly would have fixed them.
Go fix the g.p.s. box,s that don't jive with the tide......

Hotfoot:

Vixen was not suspended. Mike A. was in Mel's corner and everything has been worked out! Mel won the APBA appeal. HOWEVER, Ryan Beckley is going to replace Vixen's numbers in the VERY near future to avoid any future problems!

Imagine: Lab loses DNA sample: "No numbers." Accused gets the chair.

Hotfoot,there NEVER NEVER was a suspention.If you read my post it said that my driver Dave and i will add Shevixen to this,, were sure that because I lost my cool and printed my feelings in rather crude street corner taulk about a APBA afficial I would probably get suspended big time.Well Mike A took the time to check it out and evedently the MAN in question confirmed what i was saying. Now thats all there is to it,nothing to do with Frt Myers. Just somthing that happend between two old men that shouldnt have. So PLEASE,it has been RESOLVED,let this thing DIE and lets taulk racing again. MEL TEAM VIXEN OWNER

Gentlemen,
I wouldn't get too deep with explanitaions to Hotfoot. It seems he's just looking for any ammo he can get to take cheap jabs. I'm sure his axe has already been ground to a pulp.
