Bobby Anders will be back on the track in 2014 at Quincy Raceways. The sport driver was suspended indefinitely and fined $1,000 following a midseason on-track incident with Chris Larson last summer.

First-year track manager Ken Dobson today released the following information:

“Quincy Raceways officials have reached and agreement for the repayment of all outstanding fines with Bobby Anders that were a part of his suspension during the 2013 season. Mr. Anders will be placed on probation for the entire 2014 season and the outstanding balance of the fine will be paid through a combination of monetary payments, payout reductions and personal labor during the period of probation, which in total will meet or exceed his obligations.

“The probation is intended to ensure compliance on the part of Mr. Anders with the agreement and to emphasize the serious of this matter, which officials have recently discussed with Mr. Anders on several occasions, along with anticipated consequences for future incidents.

“Although fines will remain as one method of rule enforcement, the new team at Quincy Raceways will typically impose more severe suspensions and conditions on participation to enforce our rules instead of large fines. We believe that suspensions, expulsions and restrictions treat all participants more equally without regard to personal financial capabilities, whereas the effectiveness of a large fine depends on an individual’s resources. We also recognize that large fines can at times ‘take food off the table’ for some racing families due to the strong desire to participate at the race track.

“Provided that Mr. Anders remains in compliance with this agreement, he will be allowed to participate at Quincy Raceways during the 2014 season. All monetary penalties paid or withheld will be used for the benefit of the Quincy Raceways Hall of Fame. No further comment will be made regarding the agreement by track officials.”

    Seems like a good deal for everyone. Hopefully Bobby has finally learned to keep his temper in check because he has all the driving talent in the world.

    i think kenny d should have DRONE do some work around the track. he’s kind of a knucklehead too.

  3. tupac says:

    i like it. glad to see punishment was upheld and to hear what new track management plans for future type cases.

  4. LM fan says:

    forgive and forget. let’s go racing.

  5. NAS-T says:

    I have a question for Kenny D. I presume that the teching of the UMP cars won’t be to severe as they don’t have rules except in the tires and safety areas. The IMCA cars have many rules. Will these rules be followed to the letter of the law? How much teching will be done each night?

  6. Kenny D says:

    NAS-T – The issue of tech will be 100% in the control of Joe Bliven. We are giving him full authority in those matters. We are having a drivers meeting Sunday Feb 23 at Tower Pizza during the Daytona 500 and assuming Joe is available to be there, I imagine he will lay out his tech plan and procedures. In talking to Joe, I would expect extensive tech for IMCA cars and traditional UMP tech for those cars.

  7. 2HA says:

    So if joe is there and you run IMCA i would be buying his beer for him maybe he won’t tech your car as close as the others.

  8. NAS-T says:

    2HA ,That’s kind of what I was wondering. He will have to be fair in his decisions or Kenny D. will have to find another tech guy. Will there be any appeal process?

  9. Joe BOOM says:

    i assure you NAS-T buying me beer or anything at that matter will not let you slide through tech I always had a standard of playing by the rules when I was a driver and I will enforce every rule put forth by imca, ump,and quincy raceways the best I can and mark my word id dq my own mother if she was found illegal

  10. KENNY PRATT says:

    JOE, NAS-T IS MAKING A GREAT POINT. WHATS IN THE UMP RULE BOOK VS WHAT IS INFORCED IS TWO DIFFERENT THINGS INCLUDING AT JACKSONVILLE AND OTHER LCP UMP SANCTIONED TRACKS AS WELL AS OTHER LOCAL TRACKS.

    THIS NEEDS TO BE CLEARED UP PRIOR TO TEAMS SPENDING $$$$$ ON A PART THATS OK FOR PEAVLEY, MOBERLY, ECT BUT WILL BE DEEMED ILLEGAL AT QUINCY.

    IF YOUR MOM WINS THE FEATURE AT PEAVLEY AND PASSES TECH, THEN YOU
    DQ HER AT QUINCY THE FOLLOWING NIGHT FOR A PART THAT EVERY TRACK IN THE REGION OVERLOOKS HOW ARE WE SUPPOSED TO KNOW WHAT TO DO?

    PLEASE GIVE ME A CALL……

    I’ll let Joe speak for himself and chime in if he wants but we have talked about the UMP tech issue. Anyone who races at UMP tracks where there is UMP tech by Sam and his crew pretty much know what issues they are looking at. We are going to basically follow suit. It’s not going to be a situation where you show up to one of Sam’s ALMS races on Saturday and are deemed legal, and we find you illegal on Sunday. We all know that the UMP tech world is a little different than IMCA… and Joe is planning to follow suit. We will be following UMP’s lead and stay in contact with them regarding the UMP Late Models and Modifieds.
