The move came after Robin Miller again kicked everyone's butt and reported that former Champ Car Bringer of the Law (chief steward) Tony Cotman would team up with the IRL Iron Hand of Justice (chief steward) Brian Barnhart in 2008. The report was confirmed by Trackside Online.
Sources could not confirm if Cotman would take turns with Barnhart making drivers and teams cry of if they would both scare grown men and children alike full time. One rumor had Cotman serving as a sniper during each race "just to make sure people toe the line, if you know what I mean. Try blocking with a .3006 hole in your right front."
