    The face of dirtcar modifeds should not be the face of ess...... HUGE conflict of interest.

    Jumper would it have hurt to list the guys that had signed up and not given guys grief over it?? Some people spend a lot more time playing with their keyboards than others or might not know just were to look. Long long long time ago I heard a saying There is no dumb question in life! Just because you know something don’t think everyone else does.

    At Land of Legends in 2019, we averaged 33 Sportsman cars per week. All teams in the A feature made $100 to take the green. $750 for 1st and $500 for 2nd. B feature winner takes home $100 and no less than $50 to take the B feature green. Additionally, we paid 22 Sportsman drivers point fund money totaling $9850. Track promoters throughout the region each have different dynamics to work with and different priorities to be successful. We find this plan is working for us, but know it may not be the best for all. This dialogue can be healthy, but I caution you not to read too much in to what one track does that another doesn’t. Demographics, geography, local economy and operating costs can all vastly impact the tracks differently. Be positive and helpful in supporting all racing. Negativity and arguing aren’t helpful to anyone.

    All kidding aside, i would choose a big small-block over a big-block 9 times out of 10...... we do have one in our car. Easier to drive and hook up. If Friesen and the other top drivers all had big-blocks the results wouldnt have been any different at the finish. Those guys are in a league of their own when it comes to controlling cars. My point is, everyone doesnt need a special small- block to win on the STSS like some on here try to make everyone believe.

    On this northeast dirt modified forum the list containing the names of contracted sds drivers is nowhere near as important to update as the chili bowl entry list that gets updated every 5 minutes for 3 months prior to the event......do your own damn homework.

    Maybe the Fonda faithful could sue somebody for their extreme butthurt?

    I look at like this and maybe it's not the right way, but why bother paying more when week in and week out they keep showing up for that pay. And in most instances more money don't draw more cars, other than they have plenty now but that's a rare thing.

    While some probably hate it, I LOVE the new look of Laubach's 1K car featured on the front page of DTD right now. Something different and unique that you don't see often. http://www.dirttrackdigest.com/New17/?p=35427&fbclid=IwAR0UwzAZI1mkUV-5im-8dwJwCCogg8xJgRCWgBDZ38ng2Dz96Y7hFjsuvw0

    Deyo would schedule on a free day and within a week there would be an ESS race the same day

    We're accepting applications for moderators to help control the topics. The hours are long and the pay is terrible. Inquire within...

    exactly the reason why this site has gone downhill a lot over the years. thread about sds drivers for the upcoming year and maybe 6 actual posts about drivers and 3 pages of a pissing match over which motors are better and would win at what tracks 🙄

    I think I have seen this topic about payouts at least 3 other times in the last couple years on here. I guess it makes for good conversation. Here is my analogy: I own a burger joint and Im selling 5 oz. burgers for $4.00 each. Business is great! Customers keep returning week after week. Why would I give my customers bigger burgers (say 6 oz. burgers) for the same price when they are obviously content with what they get now? People are in business to make money. But more importantly, racers don't race for the money. If they did, this discussion wouldn't exist.

    My brother ran in the top 5 most of the race so I found it super entertaining LOL. I loved the mile but the racing at Oswego (other than the first year) has been better than anything we ever had at the mile... And i stood in victory lane with Decker at the mile.. Just saying Rob Hile

    If you head to volusia and are really fast there.....your 10 steps behind when racing gets underway up here....there is virtually nothing that you can take from that place and apply it here....the shape, surface and speed are all different than 90% of what big blocks see all summer. You can on the other hand build notes.....for volusia next year. As far as money, the modified guys have hurt themselves in that respect, travel all the way to Florida, spend thousands before you ever fire a car up knowing that your being paid peanuts. There is nothing to complain about when you continue to go support it. With that being said, Deyo May put a crunch on dirtcar to up the pay at volusia just like he did for the sds series. His 3 nights of racing pay what teams need to be getting paid to travel that far. Now that it’s an option, many may only go there that normally support volusia.

    Why do you find the need to be a effin prick? I asked a simple question and figured if somebody knew who they were they could simply type their names. So what problem do you have with that? You contradict yourself with your post. You don't sound very bright. Leroy came to the same conclusion I did. That's why I asked who they were. Obviously you don't know either. Lol.

    I wondered this cause Rudolph I would guess had a BB which people said could never win on the STSS series.

    When you see a dirtcar/ESS schedule and its notated that anything is subject to change.....under that small print in even smaller print it’s notated that scheduling changes are based off of Brett Deyo. It’s smart business In the long run, eventually they can work together to combine the schedule flyers and put out one joint flyer, split down the middle with costs.

    I think STSS is slowly winning the war.

    Because Brett Deyo is the promoter & WRG is totally against STSS owned by Deyo....I know the feeling Scott, they do whatever they can to disrupt Brett's endeavors. I think they're upset because he's forcing them to up their game.....They have gone so far as to threaten my FORMER employer because of my criticism of the way some races are run

    not the first day but when I click on a thread I expect to see information about the thread and not a bunch of whiny posts about other shit. I've been here since the fireondirt days back when the threads stayed on topic and didn't trail off onto some other useless bullshit.

    I'm willing to bet that a w16 doesnt win in the state of florida this year

    We have more coming. Ken did an awesome job on these. I'm spacing them out a few couple days. All of us at DTD appreciate Kenny's hard work and we are glad to have him as a part of the team.

    The pay out is listed here Ron. https://www.dirtcarmembers.com/upload/dafe7DRAFT 2020_DCN_CompNotes_V3_JH_1-14-20[3].pdf Most of the money at Volusia goes to the WoO teams. The modifieds are just a support division. Matter of fact when I went there a few years ago, Volusia used the big block modifieds in place of pack trucks.

    I guess this shoots down the whole 10 steps behind theory, the top 5 in SDS points will be steps ahead of most teams whether they go to Florida or not.
