    Probably because they would need to to restructure their entire power grid and honestly, the majority of people who need it, bring power to the track.

    Is that sort of like when the *redacted* of the *redacted* gets caught doing *redacted*, but nothing happens because it's just currently not actively being enforced?

    I remember people climbing the telephone poles when we pitted on the outside.. Also I remember Metalhead installing a breaker standing in a puddle of water.. I rewarded him with a Jalapeno Sammich..

    My advice is if stick says it's sketchy than I would avoid it.....I have known him for 23 years and he will do ALL KINDS OF STUPID just to save a penny on gas....

    I’ve done it many times (still keep a set of breakers in my trailer) but stopped after having two issues, not including the obvious sketchiness of wiring into a live panel:

    Power was off right before practice and tires were cold. Checked power and my breaker was partially pulled off the bar. Looked like someone who connected their breaker near mine managed to pop mine off the hot bar while they were connecting their wires I guess.

    During a race afternoon someone unplugged my extension cord from my breaker pigtail to connect their own splitter. Apparently they thought my breaker pigtail was part of RA’s setup? It reset my AC without me knowing for a little while, and at Cycle Jam heat wave it took forever for the trailer to get back down from oven temps.

    So now I just bring my generator.

    Yea, that’d learn me real quick like.

    Out here you had to have generators. Only one track had power for everyone and California Speedway is shut down for that now. They are supposedly putting in a new short track using part of the old configuration and eliminating the road course.

    Electricity and I get along about like oil and water, so I would just run my loud azz genny. If non-HVAC trailer camping, genny during the day and eve until light/fan was no longer needed. If HVAC trailer camping genny all night!! At least I would make a "sound barrier" barrier with one of my folding tables to subdue some of the noise to the paddock... :D

    I hooked up 5 people that day. Yes I was standing in 4 inches of water on the last one. But I had had 5 beers. It was the 3rd one that popped me. Lost feeling in my right forearm for like 30 minutes.
