"US6a called and recommended the rule to us after the national open to save teams money and agree with the rest of the tracks in our area," said Michael Batz recently. He continued, "I understand the idea, but I do not completely agree with the fact that the wing rule will save money when they sanction allows upgrades in other areas that can cost the racers upward of $1000. With that said, I understand it is better for the tracks to be the same across the board, especially for the track that does not run the winged class weekly like us."

 

Linda's Speedway was not following the wing rule previously. Batz says the rule was never dropped or not enforced. "I didn't know anyone, but Lanco, followed the wing rule. It was suggested on the US6a laws and since no one voted for it at the last meeting it seemed as though we would be the minority if we followed it. We plan to enforce the rule at the winged races in 2017."
