    It’s not worth arguing with douchebags who can never see something as good. “Only 39 cars” “3 of 4 heats won from the pole”. What is your point??? That was a high quality field of cars. Brett put on a great show and the crowd was as electric as the finish was. To those who always feel the need to bash a track or promoter for no reason...shut your mouths and find a new hobby, you whine ass. And as far as the $5000 drawing 60 cars? This isn’t 1987 anymore. Things change. Get over it.

    Guess what... I saw Mike Mallett on July 3rd at Fonda and said that I was getting tired of some of the nonsense on the DTD Forum and that I was ready to do a thorough house cleaning. Enjoy your vacation and we'll see you a year from now when you get back.

    Are you going to go on every OCFS thread and say this same thing? Yes, sight lines are tough, but without a complete overhaul of the property this is what we have to deal with. Maybe you could put up some of your hard earned money to lend your expertise and vision for the future of the track. I am sure track management would love to have such a positive, constructive player on the team.

    These are the times I wonder why we even bother with the message board on DTD anymore... Why be so negative about an event that you didn’t attend RJO? What’s in it for you? Is it just to get a rise out of people like Scott? (Who by the way just finished raising close to $4,000 for the Bill Ag dash and chooses to promote the positive side of our sport.) Im honestly curious because I see a lot of it lately. Why are race fans (in general) so damn miserable?

    Letting people put down blankets day(s) before the race is kind of a crappy policy imo

    I choose what tires go around this track. I can assure you American Racer has called several times to offer their wares and their tire money as well. I happen to believe Hoosier has a much better tire for the Canandaigua surface regardless of the money. That doesn't mean that AR's are bad or that other tracks shouldn't use them. And newsflash - I choose to be affiliated with DIRTcar because the member tracks work together to offer multiple facilities to race at with a standard rules package. Whether you like or dislike the rules as they stand, the reality is it provides stability for the investment of individuals and teams in their equipment. If every track had different rules all through the northeast, racing would be struggling horribly and tracks would be closing left and right from lack of attendance. Does that mean every track should be DIRTcar affiliated? Nope. Many do just fine in their niche markets and they shouldn't upset what works. Running a racetrack is a business. Running a race team is a business. In order to have success, not everyone can be the same. And as in racing there will be winners and losers. However, those who are doing well should be modeled after and those struggling should look in the mirror to see if they are in the right business. I do that everyday in all of my businesses. I work hard to provide paychecks and opportunities to my employees, our race teams, their sponsors and yes even to my bank account. You won't commonly find the customers of McDonald's getting on a forum and complaining about what Wendy's should do with their burgers. Why does it make it ok with attacking racetracks? I will be the first one, every time, to tell you support racing at any track. DIRTcar or not, Asphalt or Clay, Late Models or Sprints, Adults or kids, any season and temperature. There is plenty of opportunities to find what fits your racing desires. Running down others is just bad business.

    Matt is just misunderstood. You all forget about his thoughtfulness at UR a while back when he helped Larry out of his car after that hard and wild ride down the backstretch. I guess last night at Outlaw I heard some people asking "where is Willy Decker when you need him"?

    Every driver who's been around long enough has made a similar mistake. Yes I said mistake. I don't believe Max meant do wreck his own car and a competitor. I also snicker at some of the comments here. Some of you would have a much different tone if another driver did the same but because Max is who he is and the company he hangs with he's yet another spoiled punk. I like the kid, he's a good driver owned his error and will come bad hungrier than ever. I love dirt track racing.

    Based on the video and the twitter post, the mistake I see Max made was not hitting him with the nerf bar to move him out of the way. Had his move worked the way he say he intended, he still would have drove through Rudolph... Anyway you slice it, Max intended to remove Rudolph from the lead by force, not by skill.

    I'll take a last lap pass for the win instead of what took place.....

    I think Rudolph did bump McLaughlin making the pass in turn one to take over the lead, but it was very slight. Nothing anyone could call "dirty." And I also think some people here are way too critical of McLaughlin. The guy was going for his first ever Super DIRT Series win. Yep, he dumped himself and Rudolph. If his dive to the bottom for a major slide job had worked, you'd all be saying it was the most brilliant move you had seen in years. Instead, it turned into disaster. I'll bet everything I own that it wasn't intentional, it was just taking the one chance he had to regain the lead and it failed. Here is another thing... who apologizes for something they intended to do?

    Talk about staying on topic...….. your reply is the pot calling the kettle black. You managed to express your political views on a forum that would prefer that you didn't. Being a Trump supporter, I'd rather you be deleted because of your Trump comments, instead of RJO. Gotta go...… the president is about to give his "Salute to America" talk

    That was no mistake... You probably think Willy Decker hitting Matt Sheppard was a mistake Straight kamikaze into Rudolph everyone in the pits could hear Max drive flat foot into Rudolph IMO I would rather have The Justin Wrights, Jack Ledner, Mike Mahanoy, Brandon Walters. Erick Rudolph. In these races cause they buy the cars, build the cars and SET UP the cars and possibly shed a tear when they get destroyed This kid shows up from NC with his last name, Matt Hearn and Al Henkie at his side and does this... Some crap apology over social media...be a man go down the Rudolph trailer let him cuss you out cause you deserve it say your sorry more people would respect you. Erick himself would probably respect you more. In Max’s mind he thinks he’s a nascar driver and they are too cool for verbal butt whooping sad I do hope he wins big on asphalt so I don’t have to watch him any longer

    Say whatever you want about Wednesday's STSS show at Fonda. I returned after a 10 year hiatus from Fonda and fully enjoyed myself. Already planning my next visit. Thanks to all parties involved for putting on a great racing event.

    the best thing i saw all weekend was Vern Lafave get out of his burning racecar at Oswego. by far the scariest fire I've seen there in almost 40 years of attendance. the safety crew had the fire completely out in 45 seconds.

    Just. Don't. Go. It will be fine without you and your negativity. The prices are what they are. Deyo's prices are what they are. You have a choice.
