Another thing to consider, has Shark Racing had much success at Knoxville? I know Logan made the show before but that’s a far cry from running with Schatz, Larson, Gravel and Sweet.

I think Bobbie has gotten a couple good motors for these boys. The pill draw for qualifications is going to be critical.  Weather and track conditions will also play a key role.

Beats Schatz in a great duel  then runs away? Awesome!

Then disqualified for not going to the scales???? WTF?????!

Didn't they know they had to get weighed? Is that standard practice for B. mains?

Saw it coming when he pulled off the track and was hoping someone would wave him to the scales.

They are told over their radios who all need to scale.

He's young; he'll be back. Heartbreaker, but that team with Bobby leading it, will be just fine. Would love to see him kick butt on Friday night and make the show Saturday.

Stupidist mistake ever or bobby allen runing  them light in qualifying or something he didnt want them to find.This would explain their sudden speed . i realize they put the weight on for time trials and feature when they know they will be weighed. I find it hard to believe he forgot  i'm sure he heard transponder tell them to the scales and im sure they told them in drivers meeting. This is gonna be fun reading all you try to explain how they were not cheating  using the reasoning that he is just young   and just dumb.we will see how jacob does because am sure they will be watched now.

I'm not saying they were or were not under weight cause I'm kind of far away to guess but...

How much weight would you have to remove to actually gain a noticable advantage over 1400 lb cars?

And what is bolted to a 1400 lb car that can be removed without removing something you need to run, turn, or stay alive?

You don't remove weight after a race to make weight......you ADD weight. Surely you understand that!

I believe he was responding to the guy who claimed that Bobby was running him light, basically calling them out as cheaters. Basically, you can build a car that is too light, but you do not want to take that car to nationals, as evidence with Sammy a few years back running out of fuel and not making weight. You make sure your car weights enough empty at that race. I highly doubt that Logan missed the scale purpously. I think it has more to do with the fact that the outlaws do not scale after the B main, just not something they are used to. I will say though, if you win a race at the nationals, you ALWAYS go to the scale, whether you know or dont know you need to.

He was replying to said comment above, claiming that they were running him light, asking what physically can be taken off the car that you do not need to make it run? Literally, unless there is bolt on wieght on the car, there is not hardly anything you can remove.
