EDDIE ALTERMAN wrote:Because the cars are limited to $500 (no receipt required), cheating is rampant. Lamm has attempted to prevent overspending with two inspections. The first group of officials ensures that the cars are loosely trackworthy, applying a windshield sticker that reads “Good Enough” to all approved vehicles. The second group checks for hardware that could push the car past its $500 limit and docks offenders one lap for every $10 spent. These judges wear black robes and white wigs and are also recognizable by their bribe jars.
