    Not everyone can get a deferment for bone spurs while squandering away his trust fund.

    As my grandpa always said, going to the races is best when it’s hot out. The track girls wear less. Then takes a sip of a PBR 😂

    When I was growing up there was no "wind chill" or "heat index". TV invented that crap to be more dramatic. Bunch of pansies. Sincerely, Get Off My Lawn

    Floracing also features Usac and Indiana Sprint Week, Classic a main at Gas City last night. Winner came from 18th and it was a photo finish. Now back to the regularly scheduled idiocy....

    You can stop your crying no one is out there money. Race fans, our apologies for tonight’s rain out. We tried our hardest to wait it out in the best interest of our fans. We know many of you traveled to be here and that it may be difficult to return to OCFS for another event this year. For this reason fans are being given options. Your race ticket (wristband) is valid as a voucher for any upcoming event (if you purchased reserved seats at $40, you will be given that much in credit towards one or multiple events). If you are unable to return to OCFS this year, we will refund the cost of your tickets as another option. If you purchased online through Ticketmaster, you will be able to request a refund through them, if you bought tickets at the gate, please contact the Speedway office to process the refund. We apologize we were not able to process refunds tonight on the spot, but we assure you we are not in the business of taking fans money without delivering on a show and we will make it right.

    I don't mean to minimize the heat risk but somewhere, Bobby Allison, Jack Ingram, Harry Gant, etc, are saying, " They cancelled races because of the heat, did I hear that right?"

    Thank you for pointing that out. I corrected it and hope you can sleep better tonight. Have a great evening.

    Case of water costs 4 bucks. $40 back gate and $20 profit per case of water. Nice scam.

    Seems like we've been through this heat plenty of times before. It's just hyped more this time around. I remember a few very hot days last year. One in particular at Genesee where it was 90+ and our feature ran before the sun went down on a hammer down surface. We went green for 23 laps straight. Racers were tired and so were our engines, most came off the track 240+ on water temp. But we lived. 4th of July week this year was also pretty brutal...Wednesday of it at Can-Am especially. To me though, once you get air moving through the car the heat is barely a concern til you stop. I could imagine it sucks way worse in a closed-cockpit car. Mostly as crew, I've been to Utica-Rome plenty of times on 90+ degree days too. That place can be brutal if you don't have shelter from the sun. I gotta think most of these cancellations are business decisions based on expected crowds. But you can't count out the toll the heat takes on concession stand workers, etc. They're in a worse environment than anyone.

    This back & forth bullshit between Rep & Dems can only be solved by throwing the whole friggin' bunch of them out of washington & forming a complete new government consisting of patriots who have divested themselves of ALL financial interests.......in my opinion......lock & load!

    My nephew races quarter midgets for me and if Wall hadn’t cancelled for Sunday I was going to skip it. I was finishing up the car for this week last night and made the decision to bail regardless. 105 heat index standing on blacktop for 8 hours is tough on us but even tougher on the kids. I think it’s a good call.

    Forecast I saw was a 50/50 shot. They had to roll the dice because a makeup date is unlikely so they tried for it. Didn't work out. Sucks but it is what it is.

    It is totally cancelled with the wristbands able to be used for a discount on any night of racing that costs the same or more.

    When you have promoters like Paul Cole & Brett Deyo who go the extra mile to make sure the fan base & racers are well taken care of the results are packed grandstands!

    Land of Legends has announced their intentions to race this weekend as well. They will have $1 water available per their Facebook page.

    That is just the flipside of how comical it is when two inches of snow completely paralyzes the south, schools are closed and life grinds to a complete halt.

    This type of heat is dangerous and deadly to individuals such as myself with heart conditions and autoimmune diseases. Tracks do not cancel without a damn good reason to.

    Not only is it a safety concern for fans...it’s also a safety concern for the drivers and crews. Think about how hot it gets in those cars and I’m willing to bet very few have the cooling systems if any of the NASCAR drivers. Granted, yes those are much longer races but still...on extremely hot days, it can get to 110-120 degrees inside the cars with no AC. That’s not comfortable for anyone no matter how long you’re in that.

    It wasn't the surface though. His 1st turn corner entry was all wrong and he stepped on his dick. Then to save himself from having to wipe the egg off his face from flipping in time trials, he blamed the track.

    The #25 Pat Jordan was doing nothing wrong. Holding me tight as he should. One time he chopped inward kind of late but I think that was in the first feature which I didn't post. It was a shame the caution negated my pass when I did get him as I may have had something for the leaders.

    Isnt that the kind of stuff that makes it entertaining though? I want more of their personality and less of the nascar " car was great cant thank everyone enough we will come back next time and see what we can do"

    I don’t think he gave any excuses. Starting 12th put him in a hole he couldn’t climb out of in 50 laps. Every driver that has ever finished 2nd and was interviewed gave a reason why the didn’t win, or what they could have done differently to win. If he said he had a bad tire on, whipped a bar, or blew out a shock, would those not be excuses? They are all reasons including redrawing 12th that someone finishes 2nd instead of winning. Fairly understandable.

    Big block teams at brewerton, that bought season passes should ask for a refund. Not only have they lost a bunch of races due to rain and wet grounds, they cancelled tonight’s event because it’s an unbelievable 86 out right now....and shafted them out of racing during centennial weekend....which is to accommodate Larry, billy and pat.

    They sure do! Not that long ago I was corrected on here about the difference between a motor (electric) and an engine (combustion).
