Let's also talk about how Chelsea Denofa was jerked out of some points by inept judging. I hope he can get the car back together.
That is kind of the point of controversy here. The way "contact" is judged can be argued as inconsistant.

From my understanding when it comes to contact this is how it breaks down:

Situation #1 (Chaser's Fault): If the chaser commits a driver error that causes he/she to hit the leader's car and makes the leader spin then the contact is deemed the chaser's fault and they will give up the advantage.


Situation #2 (Leader's Fault): If the leader makes an error (straightens, goes off course, brakes inappropriately) which results in the chaser hitting them (if the chaser was on an otherwise "good" line) then the contact is deemed the leader's fault and advantage goes to the chaser.

So, what happend with Daigo and Forsberg would fall under a grey area of Situation #2. Which is why, while I don't like it. I can understand why they made that decision.

As far as Tyler and Chelsea goes, I did not watch that run so I cannot really make a comment on it. I just know what other people have said.

Daigo held speed to the corner exit while Chris accelerated. I think the judges are the only ones sandbagging for the American/regular driver's that lack the experience to chase closely while reading the lead driver.

Very bad precedents are being set when drivers intent is being surmised rather than judging the action on track.

IMO, judging from the driftstream, it looked like it was both their faults for crashing. Tyler hit and just as he moved down the rail, Denofa hit the exact same spot. They both entered the bank lower then usual. 2 possiblilities. 1- they both hit a bad spot on the bank like a missed oil spot or patch of tire debris, sending them both up the bank into the wall. 2- Tyler lost it into the bank in his own, and Denofa, committed so hardcore to Tylers line, was so close into Tylers smoke that he followed him right into the rail. Tyler chimed in on wrecked and stated what happened from his POV. In short Tyler apologized to Denofa, and Denofa admitted he was going to hit the wall anyways, whether Tyler did or not, from his own accord.
