Local racing is more
then sitting there cheering on your favorite driver or team. It's where a
wide eyed child gets their first look at racing and the start of a new
racing fan! Our local track is Greenville Pickens Speedway many of us go
every Saturday for good old fashion family fun and cheering. Like any
competitive sport you have players that dislike other players, but that
is what makes fans coming back for more.
year our hometown track got it's self a track promoter. The 2014
National Champion Anthony Anders. Many GPS fans looked forward to new
management and Mr. Anders did state new things were coming. His new
things seems to include bias to drivers and teams. This kind of bias is
not in the best interest in racing or fans, but a personal agenda.
Saturday April 18, 2015 during a 4 cylinder race the driver of the #63
car lost control. Now in racing this is normal, but the call that
resulted from this driver loosing control was not just. Mr. Anders says
the #11 car caused the 63 to loose control and first black flagged the
11 car. He then changed the call and wanted the 11 car to restart in the
back. The 11 car team's owner Tim Crowe seen the call was wrong and
attempted to get Mr. Anders to see he was wrong. That didn't go well Mr.
Anders allowed his ego or fear of exposure cloud his judgement. This
resulted in Mr. Crowe to never return back to GPS. The following day the
You tube video posted of that race you can clearly see that the 63 car
lost control the 11 car never touched it. In fact it looks like the 63
car came down short and touched the front end of the 11 car.Team owner
of the 11 car made attempts to talk man to man to Mr. Anders. He was
wanting Mr. Anders to watch the video and talk it out. Mr. Anders
refused to answer calls. Instead he took steps to not only keep TCI from
racing at GPS, but also get Mr. Crowe suspended from racing and being
in the pitts with his team at any NASCAR track. One would think this is
way too much for such a small issue that is common in racing.
all well aware of the controversy surrounding Anthony Anders 2014
National Championship. Many fans believe some how he cheated. By his own
admission Mr. Crowe has stated that he caused a caution for Mr. Anders.
It was this fear that the truth would come out that made Mr. Anders ban
Mr. Crowe and ask for his suspension. If we allow a track promoter to
pick and choose who is worthy in his eyes to race. Then what do we have
left to go see?
