I finally had the chance to meet the head tech official for ASA, Mike “Lumpy” Lempke. He was on hand to oversee the tech inspections for SPS. He travels to various tracks during each week and we would run into him again at Norway Speedway in a few weeks. Lumpy is known for being strict, but fair. If it’s in the rules, it will be enforced. He is also keen to keeping the rules package current to stay up with modern setup and engine advancements.
