I was there nearly 20 years ago:

I thought Chase's shot at Dismal was good. The foreground clutter rule wouldn't matter in this case.

Good photography is never about rules and screening guidelines. You guys tend to go batshit crazy about interpretations of rules---particularly if someone else lands a shot, and you didn't. Frankly, I would never, ever in a million years care at all what other shot got accepted here. The more, the merrier, I say. Sure, some major crap gets through the cracks, but who am I to say? That doesn't mean, however, that it's inappropriate to criticize an image. Once it's on this's fair game.

And following up on that theme...I don't get the Chevy with the open car all. Sorry. Am I concerned it got accepted? Of course not...but that doesn't mean I like it (the shot, that is). I'm not sure I even understand the motive of the shot (although the color and lighting is nice).
