Strobel Motorsports fans, a FANTASTIC season of off-road racing is in the books with the post-penalty BITD Henderson 250 results being declared offical. After the penalty Steve officially finished the race in 7th position (moved back from 5th) in Trophy Truck, which then gives the team 2nd place in the season points standing with 457 points, a mere 3 points behind BJ Baldwin after racing over 1,675 miles in the desert! While we still certainly do not agree with the decision made, the team has now put the 2011 season in the rear-view mirror and is fully focused on making the 2012 professional campaign an even better year!
Just to continue to represent the facts, we did want to share with our fans and our blog family the photographic results of what at one time the BITD race director said was the reason for the penalty which was "leaving the race course". You can clearly see in the photo below (click for larger view or download to your own PC to REALLY zoom in!) that if this was the issue either no one should have been penalized or other teams should have also been penalized.
Again this issue and the 2011 season is now behind the team and we will strive even harder to finish on top in 2012, regardless of the series in which we choose to race.
Thanks so very much to all of our sponsors and our fans for all of your support throughout the 2011 season. Let's go get 'em next year!
