Question: Is the transponder given to the teams and the teams keep it over the entire event and if turned in that is the team saying they are done for the event?

This is IndianaOpenWheel.com ... I'm going to go out on a big limb and say the overwhelming answer is no.

If there were only late model/mortified cab cars to watch it would save me a lot of money as I would never attend another race in person. I have numerous friends in the cab car world and if that's your thing great but for me I would just as soon paint my bathroom wall then sit on the toilet and watch it until it totally dries.

Love LM's myself. After working a bit on a sprint car I then went and worked two years on Bombers then LM's. Used to have both sprints and LM's at my home track.

Went to 2 last year at Circle City and they were every bit as good as open wheel races. YMMV

I donít know the true circumstances here, and neither so any of you. I know Rose has ran off and on with USAC for years. I also know he posted his side of the story on social media and many immediately formulated their opinion based on that post. USAC countered. Iím not sure what else people want here, itís a done deal. USAC made their decision to scratch the hooligan based on the 66 cars withdrawal. After that, and since the race has been run, thereís little more to deal with. Everybody wants a pound of flesh, when it seems in this instance it is a situation of nuance in which itís difficult to find anyone to be a ďbadĒ guy.
Just to clarify. Is this post not from a keyboard jockey and just a prophecy of truth?? Once again for the record. This board is designed for people to discuss their thought and opinion of a situation. Usac wanted a spot light when making some of their huge rules decisions in the past so now they are under a microscope for all decisions. Unfortunately itís where we are. Perception is usually 9/10ths the reality and the general feeling about current leadership is not held in high esteem by many. Get over it. No one can make the perfect decision all of the time, but history teaches that when a habit of questionable decisions are made, those making the decisions are not simply accepted as correct.

In my experience you always turned it in at the end of the night and they would recharge them, and you were giving another one the next day (for multiple day shows)

Always a bummer when an entrant tries to cyber bully a sanctioning body into a starting position instead of handling it like a professional. Windom had no qualifying time, why should he be allowed to run an A-main?

Well, it does say in the Silver Crown rule book (posted on page 1 of this thread) that any car not posting a time is lined up behind those who post a time in qualifying if no transfer races are ran.
