This past weekend I was at GLORCS Race #5 at Legacy Hobbies and for the most part the weekend went pretty good. I do have one issue though. During qualifying and some of the mains, some of the language used on the drivers stand was completely unnecessary. I know some guys get caught up in the heat of the moment, but some of the things said were way over the line.

Its not the marshals fault you crashed or got caught up with another car, and even if the marshal may be off in la la land its still not his/her fault you crashed. If the marshal needs a head up about a car that he/she cannot see, it can be done with out dropping f-bombs and name calling on the stand.

I will warn every driver now that will be attending the Finals at Action Hobbies, if I hear anything like what I heard this past weekend again, you will be disqualified from the whole event, whether your running for the championship or not. These are family events and should be treated as such.

Yes I couldn't agree with you more, some of the language at this particular GLORICS race was some of the worst. Even during the finals the language inside the driver stand would have made even a seasoned truck driver blush. This was going on while there was a 12 to a 13 year old youngster driving in the stand at the time these people know who they are and should hold their head in shame.

It should be a standard rule at all tracks as well as in the GLORCS rule book and should apply to people pitting as well.

1 of the main reasons I don't race.....I'd love to take my 7 and 9 yr old boys to a race but it seems that the fun is forgotten in the heat of competetion.
