Ever since the PRO meeting was held on Saturday morning of the Las Vegas NHRA race, I've been reading reports on the Internet, including in chat rooms, and hearing comments on TV, about what went on at that meeting, and I can tell you I am disappointed with all the comments.
Although I am not an official spokesperson for PRO, I feel, as a new member of the organization, I must speak out. First, those comments are mostly inaccurate. Second, I was at the meeting. And, because I was there, I am going to attempt to clarify a lot of the issues that both journalists, who were not in attendance, and fans, who also were not in attendance, have been erroneously analyzing.
Larry Dixon, Bob Tasca and I were brought into PRO last year and we've been trying to sit back and see exactly what was going on and take everything as it came. PRO brought us in to get a different viewpoint than some of the members have had. Dixon and I are the only non-owner/driver members. Tasca falls into the owner/driver category.
