  1. We get it. You prefer the STSS format. That’s fine. You don’t need to make this post EVERY time the Super DIRTcar Series is mentioned.

  2. 💥 THIS JUST IN: During Wednesday night’s (Jan. 13) monthly meeting, members of the Montgomery County Agricultural Society, led by President Richard Kennedy, voted to extend the promotional agreement with BD Motorsports Media LLC for an additional two years. ▪️BD Motorsports Media LLC now holds the lease to Fonda Speedway through October 31, 2023. https://www.dirttrackdigest.com/fonda-speedway/2021/01/14/bd-motorsports-media-llc-fonda-speedway-promotional-agreement-extended-through-october-2023/?fbclid=IwAR1H5xivtsOhyTUq2TuTIxZQThFiN1BcjcRjODwWQvcDVcJTuoqLCqQvf7o

  3. I don't understand comments like this, truly. It's $24.99 a night, $29.99 on the last night and that's basically exactly the same as a grandstand admission.. except if you go to the track with your family you have to pay for each of you, whereas for $25, your whole family can watch from the comfort of you home. DirtVision/Flo have definitely spoiled folks for pricing, but it has been explained many times why the DTD price model is what it is. It benefits them, the track, STSS all this way. And it's not free for their folks to travel down there with their equipment and do all this?! The

  4. I have been helping the Palmers for almost 4 years. I was not sure about Jamike, because of his past. After having him pit next to us last year and running the 76 at Malta I think he will surprise a lot of people. He definitely is not who I thought he was. He is a great kid, very thankful and fun to be around. He has a very positive attitude and gives a 100%. Not only as a driver but also when it comes to working on the car. I'm looking forward to him driving for us this year. Jay

  5. A few positive notes regarding iRacing now that we're just about a month into the Modifieds: A couple iRacing staff friends confirmed that the Big Blocks were their biggest release ever. More people bought the Mods in the first week they were out than any other piece of content ever in their first week. More sales than NASCAR Cup, Indycar, Sprint Cars, Late Models in their first week released, and any track like Daytona, Indy, Spa, Monza, and so on. I don't have a hard number but that's a LOT of people racing our relatively regional cars. Continuing off the popularity,

  7. New for 2021.......If a SDS contract driver races, Spectates, looks at, or even thinks about participating in a Deyo show, they will be docked 1000 points, lose aluminum status, and dirtcar officials will ask all fans and vendors to burn anything they have with said drivers name on it.

  8. I would say that if you don't want to pay $25 to sit in your comfortable recliner 10 ft from the bathroom passed a refrigerator packed with hotdogs & beer to watch better coverage than if you were there....then get an airline ticket & head down there & pay even more to watch it, eat cold $4 hotdogs & $5 beer after standing in a line to piss in a trough!!!!!

  10. Glenn also was the one that penalized Series drivers for running other series races. So, to recap, you complained about DIRT penalizing drivers for running other sanctioned events (which DIRT hasn't done in a few years) and then wish for a guy back that used to do just that. Impressive.

  16. I agree with Rob; if you draw at the gate and draw rear starting spot, there's a chance track X could be super heavy and a lane or lane and a half wide on the bottom/top or whichever groove is faster at track X (or possibility of multiple fast lanes) which would cause less passing during the heats or early qualifiers as opposed to a B main or Feature when the track would theoretically widen out or slow down and offer multiple, more even grooves of racing. Some tracks have a traditionally fast bottom or top during weekly qualifying, which may be made worse on a specials only show with potentia

  21. Those comparisons have been made from day 1, and although i've spent countless hours drafting well thought out responses to those comparisons continue to happen. It is what it is, I've had to learn to not let the negative comments bother me as much as they used to because no matter what I say, unless we say we're basically going to give our product away for $12.95 a month there will be people who way we're way too expensive... Or that we're "gouging" people by charging the admission gate price to an event for the right to watch it at home...

  25. Here is my Draw story, About 6 years ago I went to thunder mountain with Billy Decker for a Draw type race, I cant remember what the exact race was but I got to have the awesome job of drawing. I drew him 99 out of 100 and the walk back to the trailer sucked because I knew a bad draw here was going to be tough because then it was very tough to pass early on. We started last, Didnt qualify through the heat, missed it in the consi and were leaded up before the feature started. Now had I drawn 1 and he started on the pole the rest of your night is easy. From that point on I hated draw races. How

  26. Rob, as a driver I get what you are saying but as a fan it really sucks. It is much more of a show to watch the fast guys come from the back rather than start up front and just start lapping cars after 5 or 6 laps. My sincere question to you is this... if you are fast arent you going to end up in the top 4 or 5 when the checkers wave? Especially after 75 or 100 laps. Unless of course it goes green to checkers.

  29. Yep...exactly right! I will stand in that line with you FFTR. Now, because I have had an artificial heart valve installed AND a pacemaker, I really don't have a choice. Should I get covid, chances are someone is going to inherit my record player. So I will willingly get it when available. But Jesus man...not a lot of John Wayne's out there willing to take the chance. I won't call those refusing to get the vaccine pansies because I understand their fears. I DO think that if you refuse to get the vaccine, you have absolutely no right to degrade those who chose to do so.

  34. You really have to give it up to the Sportsman guys. They are going down there for penny's on the dollar compared to the Mods. But they support so much of what we take for granted. The Sportsman class has carried many of the Northeast tracks, STSS, and DIRTcar for quite a few years now.

I enjoyed all of the previous series, but none have the enjoyment factor or the inherent knowledge that you don’t have to worry if Brett Deyo is gonna pull the plug early or cancel, as he has proven time and time again that unlike other tracks that seem to want to find a way to cancel a race, Deyo goes above and beyond to make sure that the advertised race actually happens, regardless of what the weatherman or loca

Hence why the new covid bill has more money heading overseas than to American taxpayers. These practices started many administrations ago.

  43. I always loved this car. I remember when it pulled in to Syracuse and it was almost the same look from everyone that the Batmobile got. There were a few complaints around. But like the batmobile I loved it. Merv and the guys thought out side the box, ok and maybe a little bit out of the rule book. But it was a bad ass car. But again it showed why back in the day these cars were called Modifieds.

Don’t piss and moan about having your civil liberties infringed. About being locked down. And then turn around and in the same breath say you refuse to physically distance, refuse to wear a mask or now refuse to take a vaccine. This
