That's always been the rub (or bump - the victory lap lies not through the
wall). The committee makes the rules in vain efforts to even out the
technology and let the best driver win on skill. Like new rules on tires.
Or restricting Foyt's turbine inlet. I'm sure the Offys had displacement
restrictions way back when speeds threatened to exceed 120 mph.
