  1. Remember a year ago when we were upset with no racing at our local tracks?

  2. What? Do you know anything about dirt modified racing? There’s nothing “special” about the 44, except the driver. He’s on integra shocks….just like 70% of the field. He’s got Bicknell chassis….just like 90% of the field…..he’s got BTK power which many others use, and doesn’t mean they have any more power than Kevlar engines, Bruneau, CC performance, Enders etc. They all build a great piece of you want to spend the money. He’s not using special carburetors that no one has seen, no special exhaust. Anyone can and have built the same exact car as the 44. The top 10 at every sds or stss race all h

  3. Ryan Godown didn't get to the front first in Saturday night's 51st annual Freedom 76 at Grandview (Pa.) Speedway, but he got to the front by the time the track took rubber in the closing stages of the $30,000+ to win event. Godown overhauled Jeff Strunk for the win on a double file restart entering turn one on lap 51. The race then went caution-free from that lap 51 restart until the finish. And the last 12 laps certainly proved frustrating for Godown. On a track that took rubber and turned uncharacteristically one-lane in the closing stages of the event, the top four finishers finished n

  4. I would rather attend a race that all of the top drivers are at rather than splitting them between two (or three) tracks. Face it, most everyone knew who was going to win at Fonda and Canandaigua ahead of time.

  5. It's really too bad they're alienating Stew a bit here. He's the biggest star in modifieds and he takes every opportunity he gets on national TV when he's running the trucks to shout out the northeast modifieds and the fans back there. The guy that has the most points from series races at the end of the year should be your champion. Period. If that's Stew, even if he misses a race, who cares?

  6. Well, I did it! I purchased ROOFTOP tickets. Will be leaving early Saturday to make the 3.5-4hr ride. My ass will be dragging Saturday night though - driving back to Binghamton afterwards to a hotel so the drive to Big Diamond the next day is a little easier. Just not looking forward to the bumpy ride out through I-88. 😂 Other than that, and with tires being rotated and a fresh oil change, I'm feeling pretty good about it!

  8. The Clay is extremely wet from the rain we have got, and wet clay stuck to the side of the aluminum dump box which can make the load very un even. It wasn’t larry, it wasn’t John just a driver who was a victim of circumstances. There are lots more dump trucks, that one wasn’t damaged bad and was only a few hour delay so it wasn’t that big of a deal. Progress is still going great on the track. I never once seen a “ I hope the driver is ok” post on here or social media, but then again I wouldn’t expect any less lol Rob Hile

  9. Whether you like mandee or not, enjoy her videos or not….she’s probably done more to promote northeast modified racing than anyone else besides Brett Deyo. Obviously she has quite a social media/YouTube following which is only good for the sport in general. I’ve watched a few of the videos….mostly because I wanted to see if Junior was still on bars and usually they pan the car with it on jackstands once or twice so you can get a quick view of that. I will say Mike has had some terrible luck the second half of the season. Can’t help but wonder if the schedule he runs is just too much for the eq

  12. Here’s kind of an off-the-wall idea…. Why don’t they just take the driver who accumulates the most points at the scheduled races and make him the champion? Why are there arbitrary ‘bonus points’ and ‘platinum contracts’ to begin with?

  13. Surely the OP is some form of dry sarcasm. It doesn't make any sense. The show you see on Flo is the exact same show you'd see on DTD except a couple Rock Auto commercials. If you ignore that $150 a year is a steal for all you get, even at $15 a month Flo is cheaper than a stand alone DTD broadcast and you get A TON of racing for your money. Absolutely nothing against DTD but paying more for literally the same thing makes no sense.

  15. Okay...wait a minute! I have been a real race fan since 1963. I have worked in the press department at Flemington, I have published driver monthly newsletters, I have written for Gater and. AARN, I have spent years announcing at a track, I have done cable tv and radio color commentating, I have done PR for a racing group and now I oversee a great and dedicated group of racing historians who research and document our sport. So please, don't insult me telling me I am not a true race fan (two words by the way). However, three years ago, I fell fifteen feet onto the small of my back. These da

  18. I am a bit confused. No one is complaining about a $40 admission price to watch a 76 lap race, but are complaining about a $49.99 price to watch from the comfort of home or at a gathering of fellow race fans (and maybe some who aren't)?

  20. How ya figure that? If Brodix themselves are willing to say that there is zero performance reason for it (sounds like slightly sloppy machine work to me) then what would be the point? I'm normally a very black and white when it comes to rules like this, but if what Brodix said in their statement is all that was found this a bad DQ.

  22. Give me a track with character over a skating rink any night. Now I am not saying craters, but something that you don't need a Zamboni to prepare, slick in the middle and a wet ledge around the top. Yes there is the argument that equipment is used up on that type surface, but is it possible the equipment needs to be made to take the beating?

  28. Alright, I made some calls to find out what the heck was going on. So, apparently back when Lenny Sammons ran that article in Area Auto Racing News back in late winter/early spring about this, it was a done deal (I remember reading the article and thought it was a future possibility, not that it was taking place immediately). Per DIRTcar, the reason they implemented it was at a request of DIRTcar sanctioned tracks (some track owners were much more vocal than others) doing it to keep some of their teams running their tracks weekly. The compromise, instead of forcing the teams to race at these t

  29. Not to single him out, but just as an example….how does Jordan McCreadie get 1200 bonus points for the BB division when he runs 358 on Saturdays at Thunder Mountain?? And where do Matt Sheppard’s 1200 points come from? Where do Williamson’s 1200 points come from? This whole system makes no sense whatsoever.

  34. For Immediate Release September 19, 2021 Mahaney Sets New Worlds Record Canandaigua, N.Y.- Race Car driver Mike Mahaney of Kings Ferry, N.Y. set a new worlds record on Saturday, as he lost more points during a race event than has ever been recorded in modern history. Entering the Super Dirtcar Series event on Saturday September 18, Mahaney sat fourth in the point standings with 2928 points. After the race, Mahaney earned a negative 1200 points and now sits 19th in the standings with 1728 points. Mahaney was both excited and disappointed regarding the development, "It'

  36. I'm a fan of Grandview and I'll be at the 76er this weekend because it's always an awesome event... but Grandview isn't really know as a track that does things with anyone other than the owners of Grandview Speedway's best interests in mind. It was mentioned here multiple times that the track decides on the price for the event. This is just like the FloRacing deal a few weeks ago with the when Grandview (and TOTH Bob Miller) refused to allow the modifieds to be broadcast without more money for them from Flo, and just like then, if you guys have a problem with it, you need to take it up with th

  40. Just load up and go home. Or pull in to avoid wrecking equipment. When someone continually drives hours past other racetracks to compete at the “laughing stock” shithole….who looks like the fool? I have no problem with people speaking their mind…..but matt only does it when things don’t go his way. If he’s winning on that same shit surface all is good. You get a whole lot more respect when you speak about all the stuff that’s wrong after you win rather than whining when you lose.

  46. Fulton took a large hit when the pure stocks and pro stocks were replaced with the cratemodels. It’s a class that never really took off and the track is in an area that housed a lot of pure stocks. You can drive around the Fulton/Hannibal/Oswego area and see a number of them still sitting beside garages. They should have brought that class back long ago. Now, to the average fan, they may not be the most attractive class….but the families and friends of those teams came out in droves years ago. Those people filled the grandstands to support their own, and never cared about modified names. That’

  47. I hated the idea of the stages when they were announced but at this point I don’t understand how anyone could possibly think they are a bad thing. Drivers are finally given a reason to run hard throughout the race and are rewarded for running well consistently throughout the race. It’s made the racing better. I swear some people will just hate everything that isn’t identical to how it was 30 years ago.

  48. I mean, I did watch Ryan Krachun smash his car into the exact same spot every time in turn 3 last night. You could see the nose dig in and fling mud 30ft in the air every lap. If he moved down a lane that wouldn't have happened. Some of what happened last night was def self inflicted by many drivers.
