  1. I thought intermissions are what IMCA Mods were for.

  2. Most of the time, any track that I go to has an intermission. Some tracks are really short (Fulton and Brewerton are about 10-15 minutes) and some tracks are really long (Fonda last week and most SDS events). Also, having an intermission depends on the weather situation and how many classes there are. If you have crappy weather, move the show along. If you have nice weather, a short intermission is OK with me. If its a series race or a special race and there are only two classes, again, its fine by me to have a short intermission. The more classes you have at a show, the shorter the intermissi

  5. How much longer will the Big Block Modifieds last? 5 years? 10 years? Sportsman are the way to go, Pro Stocks are coming back at atleast 3 local tracks. But how long until ALL guys running modified now are running a crate modified?   I don't know for a fact, but use this as an example. Friesen runs a SB at Fonda right? No idea the cost of his motor, but it is a SB, and the track has been a BB track, and be still destroys the field, so if your the others in the field why spend $50,000 on a BB when the SB is kicking your ass at half the price. (like I said I don't know what the prices are

  7. If big blocks do end up going by the way side I'm going to miss the sound, speed and smell of them. It was an EVENT for me my first trip to Canandaigua after growing up with small blocks at Dundee and Woodhull. Seeing the big blocks at CMP turned me into a dirt racing diehard after I had been away from it for awhile.

  8. It doesn't really matter to me, I mean I don't want a 45 min delay, but 10-15mins to put a little water on it, scrap so bumps and do a little maintenance.   Me, I hate to miss races, whether its a Sportsman heat or a street stock feature, I like all divisions.

  9. I can see how selling 1 BB motor would get you 3 crate motors all ready to go. That's what I mean, I'm curious to see what it comes to in the coming years.

  10. Mr Spraker might want to chime in on this I bet....He recently said he sold a 'decent' BB and used the money to buy 3 COMPLETE crate Sportsman engines. I don't know what most crate features pay to start ($75?) but most BB features are $100-150 to start. Yes the top end money is better, but only a handful of guys get that every night. The other 15-20 guys are in the red. I've said for awhile that almost everyone out there is running what they can AFFORD to run, and clearly the bottom line is better in the crates than the headline division.

  11. JMO,  ANY time, whether it's 3 hours or 10 hours at the track is a HELL of a lot better than being at work.  There are reasons for intermission besides what the fan needs and most tracks do fine at maintaining a good balance between what they need and what competitors and track employees need. (Not all do)   There are two sides to the fence, but many different costs depending on which side you are on. For everyone who has costs on the bleacher (viewing) side, multiply that many times for those on the other side.   On the competition side of things, there are times when

  12. That SB is a big SB with just as much in it as most BB. The rules across all the tracks would have to open up. Many BB tracks don't allow a large CID SB. Not DIRT legal anyways. There has to be an exemption clause somewhere for that to happen. Not sure how that works with SDS points for home tracks. A lot of conformity and politicizing would need to happen. But teams will spend just as much on a big SB as they will a BB so why phase them out?

  13. I was at Fulton last week, but what I understand at least for the mods with the show up points last week(someone please correct me if i am wrong) is a heads up style, with the top 6 from last week inverting for the feature this week. Not sure on the rest of the classes. I would imagine small block would be heads up since its "opening night" for them.

  15. If I had a dollar for everytime I went in the pits at Fonda after the racing and heard Louie, Kenny Shoemaker, Pete Corey, Jeep Herbert, Steve Danish and the rest of the best tell me the track was rough, I would be a rich man. There wasnt much complaining from drivers or fans, they just were happy to be racing.

  18. I just wanna left everybody know that the low temp this Saturday night in Albany in 45, out in Fonda it might be 40. I'm letting you know now! Bring your gloves, hats, everything. Dress warm don't bitch, and watch some racing.   Ps, or you can wear shorts and bitch up to you

  20. 3. Track conditions. It's springtime. Hell we just had snow on the track less than a month ago. I have said for years. Why not start 2-3 weeks later and race 2-3 weeks longer into the fall. ???   Custom Bob, that's a point that I thought should be made here...but you do have to take into account that Fonda loses half of August due to the fair, thus losing some 'prime time' race dates.  That's probably why they look to start in early April, to (1) try and maximize the amount of available dates and (2) generally speaking (in terms of car/fan count for seasons starting), 'first in win

  21. Just watched the video and I may be a bit biased because Fulton is my weekly home track but that was one hell of a race. If you didn't appreciate the 3 and sometimes 4 wide racing then your not and true fan!

  22. After reading through the complaining I came up with these conclusions that need to be addressed. 1. The Food needs to be fixed immediately. Food is a big weekly revenue that a track needs. If fans stop eating its going to hurt the speedway. 2. The flagger at any track takes orders from the race director in the tower. It's not like the old days when a flagger was the boss. Now there a puppet and just there for the show. With the radios today, a race is controlled in the drivers ear. ( Barring a drivers radio doesn't malfunction.) What it sounds like to me is the Race Director controls the sh

  25.     Jeremie has opened it up to sail panels for a couple races, unfortunately both have cancelled due to weather so we never got to see them. I hope that option comes up again because I would like to see them at CMP. Hell, I want to run them on my car, and hope the GRIT series puts them in play again this year just so I can put them on.   As for Gary, yes, it was a joke. He's professed his hatred of sail panels many times, I just had to put it in play... lol

  26. It's your prerogative to not like Canada, however, US tracks that play the Canadian anthem do it for both Canadian fans and Canadian drivers. Don't hold it against them. Reconsider standing and removing your hat for the Canadian anthem.
