Hard to see all that happened in the video.
NFMS is hard to judge from the stands because if your hauling ass they shut you down really early. So from the stands it doesnt look like much.

I vote yes for them to come back if they get their act together. Its one thing having parts break but not being prepared on a stage that size is huge. Its like playing in the super bowl but forgetting your helmet.

the big diesel 4x4 class is new, I like them as much as the next guy, but the super stock tractor guys have been at it since before the idea of a diesel in a pickup was thought of. Theyve had time to work out bugs. But they have taken it a bit too far and cant keep them together it seems.

I dont know why people complain about seeing broken parts. Makes me feel better seeing other people break more expensive parts.

Look at the Different crowds your pulling for too. NFMS is a mixed bunch but enough people are there for the tractors, so DFWDs are the underdog, and are judged harder. Versus TS or Scheids where its all people who love diesel trucks.

I also blame NFMS for the class choice though. As somebody said, the big trucks are still science experiments and those should be left home to get the bugs out. Not only is the reliablilty questionable, but the driver doesnt have a feel for the new parts yet.

DFWD will pick up if they move the show along. Nobody likes a slow show.
