Throughout my life and my experiences I learned there is always a thing called RESPECT. Those simple words mean that no matter if you like a driver, are a driver, a pit crew member, a crew chief, a car owner, a sponsor or an official- there is a way to conduct yourself in every situation. This past weekend I had the sincere pleasure to work with Robert & Sacha Ballou and their entire team. I have followed Robert's racing since he raced a winged sprint car in California and have watched his many frustrating moments and moments of joy. My family and I were completly honored to work with his entire team this weekend and more so to be surrounded by the man who lives up to his name the "Madman." Now there are many ways to interput that name but one thing I know is that he takes chances, makes moves and wins and loses races- sounds like a race car driver to me. I witnessed something that I have not seen in any of the series I have worked for nor am associated with on Saturday nigth at the Wilmot Raceway. A USAC offical came down to the Ballou Motorsports pit area in front of fans that were there to visit with Robert and a potential sponsor when this official in front of the entire crowd told Robert he was going to be set on probation due to a racing incident in the A-main event when Robert attempted a slide job on another car to take a position and the car and Robert touched and both cars were damaged. I watched every single lap of that race, and I strongly believe no driver is ever 100 percent but there is something that can be used 100 percent of the time if not broken- and that is the break pedal. I don't want to state who should have done what but I do want to state that the entire way this 6 race probation has been handled is beyond frusting, disgusting and has shown several children that watch this happen on Saturday night and heard it announced in the drivers meeting on Sunday night- bullying. I believe in being professional, and there is a way to handle situations and the way this situation has been handled and what has been said to Robert, his wife and team is in apporaite and should be appealed and USAC should be ashamed. I know several people that are not in support of this serious now due to the conduct of officals in public. To Robert & Sacha Ballou and your entire team- as a witness to this spectacle and the entire situation- I want you to know that by no means is this acceptable and should not be tolerated by any of you, your sponsors and fans. The sponsor that walked away after he heard what was said cost not only Robert's team money but USAC money too because no-one knew how much they wanted to spend or in which way and now that moment has passed. I believe in being fair-professional and engaging in policies and procedures and that is exactly what should have been done and going forward should be the top priority.
