I am all for leaving things where they are. I think most of the fleet agrees as well. I weighed 223 about two months before the nationals, went on a healthy diet and weiged in at 206 for nationals. I certainly am not "vertically challenged" as Larry puts it, since I am 6' tall. I have several friends that are even taller than I am and who actually weigh less than I do.

I just think the 880 limit has worked very well for many years and it is only a small few people who are complaining about it. I feel it is really in those people's best interest to lead a healthier life and shed 20-30 lbs.

This, of course, is just my opinion. If you want to change the rules we have a process in place to do just that. Go for it!

:: - 120 lb driver - weight limit: 866lbs (746 for crew)
:: - 160 lb driver - weight limit: 880lbs (720 for crew)
:: - 220 lb driver - weight limit: 904lbs (685 for vrew)
:: - 260 lb driver - weight limit: 920lbs (660 for crew)
