  1. I'm not one to comment but I had a little time here waiting to pick up my wife from her treatments today. Just for the record, I did not hire John Baumes as my new accountant. When I started in this business in 2006, I had just $220 to throw in. Pat Jordan at the time took a chance on me that ultimately paid off with the Short Track SuperNationals. Here we are 14 years later and we are far from a large corporation but we are a very stable LLC with not only racing but marketing services to small businesses in Delaware and other projects. The fact is, this year's racing was almost entire

  2. Is this going to be one of those deals that when DIRT schedules a show 3 hours away from the Fonda 200, they're horrible people. But since Brett scheduled this show 4 hours away from Grandview Speedway and the Freedom 76er date they announced a few weeks ago (and have traditionally used forever) there's nothing wrong with it? That extra hour and change apparently is the difference between being horrible or not. For the record, I have absolutely no problem with any of the scheduling stuff. DIRT's ran against the 76er forever and both parties have great shows on that night. The fact that w

  3. We can remove Cuomo from the equation if we have a leader who will lead the country instead of playing on twitter like a child. Someone who will listen to advice from the experts who study infectious diseases. Following guidelines might be a good place to start. Leadership is key to having all businesses open.

  4. In the case of Matt Sheppard, he usually gives the weekly trophies away to a young fan after victory lane photos are over. And I'm not quite sure how that works. I don't know if it is prearranged or if someone asks as he gets out of the car and it happens on the spot. A couple of years back Matt won a trophy at Rolling Wheels that looked like a drivers helmet. I asked Matt if I could borrow it to shoot video of on a turn table with different kinds of lights aimed at it... just an artsy fartsy video clip to use wherever. He told me I could have one. So one day he decided to clean up his sh

  8. They're 2 different brands altogether. SDS is about star power and STSS is about pros vs joes. As a racer, I prefer the SDS format. Both formats are kind of make or break at the start of the night. For SDS it's time trials, for STSS it's the draw. I'd rather have something that's somewhat in my control set the tone for the rest of the night rather than drawing for it. If a track produces passing early in the night the draw doesn't matter so much, however most of the time if the track is hooked up, everyone is hooked up which leaves you either loving or hating where you drew for that

  9. I think the most important difference between the SDS and STSS, is with the SDS, you only need one car and motor. With the STSS you have some teams towing two or more cars to a race then deciding on the combination that they want to use. That isn't very economical. Standard rules across both series would help everyone. Yes I know it will probably never happen, as each group wants there piece of the pie, but the various rules and mandatory products used (i.e. tires, fuels, body style) are bifurcating the top division of Modifieds in the North East. You can race a Late

  12. I saw this behavior a lot in companies I have worked for. Company has significant market share and therefore over time develops an ego. Every decision is applauded within the company regardless of whether it is logical or not. The sheeple in the company defend the leadership decisions out of blind obedience. Severe groupthink settles in. At some point a competitor will challenge and takes down the bloated, non-innovative, and egotistical company....

  19. This is a bad take. I like Kyle a lot and I’m glad he’s getting a second chance but he absolutely got what he deserved after making that remark. That is just a word you cannot say, ESPECIALLY in public for the whole world to hear. He’s owned up to the mistake and said/done all the right things and now he’s getting his second shot.

  21. From a fans perspective STSS is superior imo. You get to see the "professionals" and the NJ, Del, PA big guns but with the SDS its 90% NY guys only. The format for STSS is far more entertaining from a fans perspective also. This is just my opinion.

  31. I think you are adding your own twist to reality. You have peaceful protestors and you have scumbag criminal looters who belong in prison. Two entirely different groups. The trump sheeple like to lump them in together as part of the great unprecedented Misinformation Campaign that will forever be written in the history books. More than 22,000 Misleading or false statements that are very easily fact checked if you can read and have Internet access.

  35. You are becoming more and more talk with no substance. Throwing multiple accusations without showing a single bit of evidence. If you have evidence put it out there, or admit all you have is accusations. Obviously if you had evidence it would of been out now. DIRTcar or WRG or Boundless or whatever you want to call them have been going the wrong way since they bought DIRT Motorsports from Donnelly. They really weren't interested in the NE Mods as much as they wanted the name and at the time the tracks. Northeast is always a second thought. They make a lot more money off of the other DIRTcar cl

  38. Thing is. Some of the full size cars like sportsman for just one example. Are safer built than most go carts , mini sprints etc. And as mentioned in another post , motorcycles. Little kids are racing dirt bikes all over with little protection except a helmet. I am where I was the last time one of these threads came up. If the parents are fine with their kid racing? Then it is good. Not my place to decide what is best for someone else's child

  40. We should just put all kids in to bubbles and slow all their potential to grow, especially those that show exceptional abilities...... Kids race motocross and launch themselves into the air all over the world. Somehow I bet most on here arguing are all fine with that but, heaven forbid you you that same kid in a car that goes on flat ground, surrounded by a tested and proven roll cage. It wasn't too long ago that the same debate was had about those "delicate and fragile women" wanting to race too. That came across as a bunch of grown men afraid to get beat by a girl and making excuse

  41. Nope, Nope, Nope. Where do you draw a line? 12 years old , 11 years old, 10 years old?. I don't care how talented he is. No way does he belong on a track with adults, period. When something bad happens, the news media, politicians, and lawyers, will have a field day with a tracks ass that allows this stupidity. A 12 year old wants to race, go find a go-kart track.

  42. It depends. If the vaccine works like some flu vaccines have it may just lessen the effects if you get the virus. It may not stop transmission of the virus. Being that we apparently only care about positive cases, and if we continue to test hundreds of thousands of healthy people who are not sick....we may stay in lockdown forever. The stats that we were told were most important to get under control (death rate and icu patients) don’t matter anymore. They dropped dramatically months ago. Now we just test like crazy and keep the thumb on the general public. I just seen a story about a new stran

Because him and a certain State Senator want J HO and Alex's group to buy the Mets even though they don't have even close to enough money to do it. Can not be Batman's fault he is from Australia. Maybe Superman's. But I think we'll have some great racing from Florida next year from both series, because its almost all the same drivers. Freisen will be back on track in NASCAR and be a title contender. Should of won this past weekend or at least finished second by Sauter made an extremely bad move. Sauter
