  1. I guess I wasn't paying that close of attention last night because the National Anthem sounded okay to me. But what is Shane (as the DIRTcar announcer) supposed to do if the performance wasn't the best? Is he supposed to come over the microphone and say "Wow... that was pretty bad?" and totally embarrass the person who just sang the anthem? I like that now we've hit a point where we're mad at people for being too nice... The world could use more nice people in it because there are more than enough mean people out there.

  2. While it may not have been public knowledge, the free live stream deal has been a goal for Paul since Day 1. The announcement took me by surprise though because I didn't think it was going to happen until 2022 at the earliest. I haven't spoken with Paul since the announcement, so I don't know for certain if the Covid pandemic had anything to do with speeding up the process or not. One of the things I like most about Paul is that he is extremely approachable and he is friendly - even if someone constantly bugs him with questions that have obvious answers. Another thing I like about him is

  4. No one is "losing their mind" or "can't handle it" that someone was punched; the issue is that the DIRTCar rulebook is a complete joke if their own policies are not followed, especially for a repeat offender.

  8. In most cases a repeat offender is dealt with harder than with their first offense. If I recall, Matt was sat down for a few races after his deal with Larry Wight. This time though.... nothing!?!? And to me this was worse because he had a good 30-40 minutes to cool off after the incident and he didn’t. At least with the Larry attack you could argue ‘heat of the moment’ or some other nonsense.

  12. Unbelievable. Pro football. Rough the quarterback up, expect a kick in the face. And if the refs don't see it or fail to call it, expect to go to the concussion protocol tent. Pro baseball. Pitcher whizzes one by the chin of the star batter, bench clearing brawl. Pro hockey. If there isn't a fight in a game, it's a miracle. All of that is okay, but a dirty slidejob or push sends 2 front runners to the back, and we expect the drivers to act like pussies.

  13. Here is a compilation of congratulatory Tweets to McDowell from other NASCAR drivers. Some of these Tweets are really cool to read. I never knew how well-liked he is among the rest of the garage and what a fan friendly driver he is. https://www.nascar.com/news-media/2021/02/15/michael-mcdowells-daytona-500-win-a-popular-one-among-drivers/ Here is a very good article on McDowell's ups and downs in NASCAR and the hopes that even start and park rides will one day lead to something better. https://nascar.nbcsports.com/2021/02/15/michael-mcdowell-denny-hamlin-brad-keselowski-chase-e

  14. 20 years ago I’d have paid an admission to go to a bar and watch. In fact I used to be in NASCAR pools and seldom missed a race. Now, you couldn’t pay me to watch. The rules, the racing, the stages, competition cautions, playoffs, drivers, it’s so unwatchable. No way should a short track 500 lap race take 4+ hours to complete. NASCAR was the golden goose and squandered the hole thing. I’d drive 300 miles to watch a 50 lap dirt race before I’d flip channels to watch 5 minutes of a nascar. And you don’t know how sad that is when you consider how big a fan I was 20 years ago.

  17. A lot of guys these days do the right thing and go to their own haulers and stay there till they cool down. You see that a lot on the Lucas Oil Late Model drivers. Not all the time, but most the time. And they won't do an interview till they cool off either. Sheppard does seem to have a real temper problem. I mean he does have a long history of just over reacting. Look back at the Larry Wight incident years ago. They were both pushing for the same real estate racing hard and wrecked. But Sheppard's first reaction is not to see if Larry is ok, but to attack him. For decades guys raced the

  18. I fell asleep and woke up to that... Optimistic move from Max, but if he really did hit water, without that it probably would've worked. Still, ambitious on the opening lap. If I'm calling this straight, Matt should be suspended for driving the wrong way on the track to stop Max. I'd let the punch go. The penalty for punching someone in the mouth is already too high in our society.

  19. Sundays weekly are tough, With my brothers team we race Friday nights at Brewerton weekly. We race Friday, the occasional Canandaigua on Saturday and use Sunday to wash/clean and start to get things ready for the next week. If you race on Sunday you do the normal maintenance on Monday but you cant start on it until after we all get done with work so it puts us behind. The occasional Weedsport isn't bad because its every now and then but it still puts us a day behind on everything. I think friday nights is a good choice, Its something different and as we have seen the rain gods do not cooperat

Ya I wonder what these posters would do if I had them stand beside me when I run door at my bar business which I have run for 40 years when 25 Harley's pull up and mix with loggers, truck drivers , pavers, roofers , farmers , divers, mechanics , dozer operators , lawyers and doctors and women drama queens ......Sounds like they would soil there drawers before dark I've seen fools go outa there mind over pool game , wrong music you name it For $4000 they would burn place to foundation if they felt wronged ....This MS deal sounds like nothing to me but posters living sheltered lives can't ha

  23. A few things here 1. Probation = Zero to very little. $700 does sting a bit. However....... 2. Multiple offender here. It is not like Matt is anywhere near to a first time offender. He has pulled this kind of thing before. A few different times it seems 3. If I had a dollar for every time I saw Sheppard run over or into another competitor? I would be on vacation somewhere warm right now 4. Did Max screw up?. Yes. it sure looked that way to me. Did it look intentional? Not from my view. Only Max knows that. 5. Are there times when I feel a punch from

  25. I have to chuckle at the MS/9S fanboys on here making all kinds of excuses and praising how tough Sheppard is and now the others will think twice.........lol. I recall a DIRT series race at OCFS with a number of restarts with Matt in front of Hearn. Matt repeatedly (and very obviously) brake-checked Hearn.........until Hearn got along side and punted Sheppard into the 4th turn wall......to much cheering from the tough Middletown crowd and rage from Sheppard's pit. Brett won the race. Matt had won the pole, so his pit was in the first position behind the wall. After going across the scales

  26. Max's move was a little over- enthusiastic for a first corner move for sure, but that's a racing incident. I understand being upset over it, maybe even giving him some arm-flailing business on the track and maybe a couple birds to the sky. But anything beyond that is just being a child. But like someone else posted above, he's just doing what it appears he's being permitted to do.

  28. Facebook video shows Matt going into Max's pit to punch him. Last time I checked, that is an automatic suspension in the DIRT rulebook. If he doesn't get suspended for that, I guess we can just throw the rulebook out, right boys? Fights are no big deal, right? After all, it's not like a speedway official at New Smyrna passed away just last week after nonsense like this.

  29. He will say: "We talked to both of them". Its crazy how so often we see written rules established and then not followed. Lol. Kind of kills your credibility as an organization or a facility.

  30. Say what you want, but 9S gets into people too. That’s a fact. World Racing Group set a precedent with Terbo last year. Same thing - “driving the wrong way on the racetrack.” Oh, and all Terbo asked was for Bobby Pierce to meet him at the truck stop. He didn’t physically do much of anything at the race track. Will poster boy get the same treatment? Time will tell... To all the keyboard warriors saying Max isn’t grateful. Watch the Oktoberfast victory lane interview from Weedsport. Oh, and reference his comments from victory lane night. Give me a break. The kid is humble

  32. I'm just going to put this out there. People are going to complain and bitch about price but I will applaud all streams of dirt races shown especially during covid regardless of price to give us a chance to watch racing. Plus knowing the price ahead of time gives me options to pick and choose what I want to watch and I think it's fantastic until we get life back to normal.

  37. I have it. When I purchased it I figured it was worth the $113 a year. The reason? I was a bracket racer with my street car, the closest drag strip is 180 miles from me. If I broke I could be towed home. Well, that time did come, blew the rear-end & the trans, towed me home. Can you imagine how much a 180 mile tow would cost? Worth every friggin penny.

  38. McDowell will have more top tens. Remember he’s a road course guy and strong at plate tracks. He’ll likely get at least a couple top tens between the 6 road courses. Throw in a couple more with 3 more plate races. He also could grab a top 15 or top 10 at a short track. I think a lot of people think Front Row is worse than they are. I’d put them on par or above Rousch at this point

  39. Idk how anyone can be so upset at this. I am by no means a Sheppard fan, but I sure was for a night. I was appalled that Rudolph didn't at least try to beat the brakes off Max at LoL. 9s giving Max a ride on the ole' learnin' wagon might actually keep him from dive bombing into turns and wrecking other people's equipment, which I'm sure helps Dirtcar and other racers out. As far as people getting special treatment, welcome to life. 9s is the show and people show up to see him win or get beat. Such is life. So is getting punched in the face once in a while.

  40. You’re wrong bud. We know exactly what DIRT hasn’t done. Princess was on the racetrack last night, presented on social media and interviewed like nothing happened. Secondly, it isn’t hear say. There’s a video. I don’t believe ER25 went into Max’s pit at LOL and engaged in physical altercation, right? All of the racing deals are left on the racetrack. Super Stomper has issues. Keep beliefing what you want...

  41. The lack of any kind of punishment says a lot folks. And the fact he was able to race the next night, Dean should be ashamed of himself. Something I was thinking of, how many of these incidents has Matt been in over the years? And what punishment did he get? Side note the apple doesn’t fall to far from the tree. Take it nobody has seen the old man in action in the pits before. Yeah...

  42. If nothing is done to Matt as far as a suspension goes, then every other competitor just got the green light to go across the pit area and jack somebody up any time they get pissed. Fact.

  43. MS always picks on the little guys.. lol. He is a hell of a driver but he still falls short of the great ones because he loses his composure instantly when something goes wrong. Anybody know if he went after Willy Decker at Malta when Decker took him out on purpose going inot turn one with Matt leading? I never heard what happened after the race when Matt got out of the car. For all of you who enjoy the physical violence, Im sure you would get a thrill to see MS do that to the wrong guy. It would certainly be interesting to see what would happen if he picked on somebody that wasnt smaller

  44. Maybe it’s just me, but I liked the Clash better when it was a 15 minute, 20 lap sprint at noon on Sunday. The ultimate Dash for Cash. Last night was a 90 minute spectacle of caution laps and confusing pit rules. Teams went through 3 sets of tires for a race with no points? How is that saving teams any money? I don’t get it...
