  1. I'll eat some crow as I was totally wrong. Good job to the officials...do it again at CanAm tonight.
  2. We all know that there's a rift there. But what has lead to legal action?
  3. Jeremy Elliott is reporting on SprintCar Unlimited that "Racing Politics has led to rift between the Fonda Speedway and the Empire Super Sprints - Legal action being taken." Anyone know what's going on here? I don't have a subscription for the site...
  4. From the OCFS Facebook page... "Inclement weather is expected for Sunday, October 27th’s Eastern States 200. In the event of rain, racing will be delayed as late as possible in an attempt to run it on the 27th. If ultimately we are unable to run on the 27th, racing will be rescheduled for Sunday, November 3rd."
  5. From their Facebook page... Can-Am Speedway 14 mins · Happy Thanksgiving!! Hope everyone enjoys the holiday spent with friends and family. Some exciting news for 2019. The BIG BLOCK SUPER DIRT CAR SERIES will return to the Nasty Track of the North April 13th for 100 laps paying $10,000 to win!!!!!! This is the first race for the Series and is kicking off the 2019 tour at Can-Am Speedway. More details and specifics coming soon!!
  6. I saw a picture where it looked like the SDW Track Prep team was putting calcium on the surface. I remember Evans Mills (dirt surface) advertising that they were now using calcium in their track prep routine to reduce dust in the late 80's during Wendell Turcott's tenure. Is this common on dirt tracks...the use of calcium? Is it generally mixed in the water or spread on the surface like in the photo I saw? Lebanon Valley and some Quebec tracks were known as an "oiled surface". Are there any tracks that still do this? Also, I seem to remember there was a product in the 70's-80's called "Liquid L" that was added to the water truck's load to reduce dust...Does that still exist?
  7. I was one of those "cronies" and "instigators". There was never a dull time with Doug. My first sports hero and a friend till the end.
  8. Are they broadcasting this online anywhere? A link would be appreciated.
  9. MAJOR EVENTS POSTPONED FOR 2018 Posted by Tommy Goudge Published on December 12, 2017 (December 12, 2017) – Ohsweken, Ontario – Ohsweken Speedway has postponed its biggest 2018 events until further notice. Speedway management cites unforeseen challenges with the lease of adjacent land as the reason. The land directly north of the driveway isn’t Speedway property; It has recently changed hands, and the new owners have other plans for usage of the land moving forward. “We just learned that the dozens of acres we have always used for excess parking and camping will be unavailable,” said track owner Glenn Styres. “Without parking, we just don’t have room for our fans.” The postponed events include the World of Outlaws Sprint Car series races, the Canadian Sprint Car Nationals, and the Triple Crown Showdown. Regular Friday Night racing will continue as scheduled. Speedway management chose to make the announcement now in order to provide fans, teams, sanctioning bodies, and other stakeholders as much time as possible to adjust their plans and schedules. “We have a plan of action in mind to deal with the situation, but we need about six months of good weather to prepare,” said Styres. “The reason we are using the word postponed instead of canceled is we want to keep our options open. Our special events cost nearly half a million dollars a year to run, and it’s too big a risk to commit to that without all of the necessary parking.” Speedway General Manager Clinton Geoffrey announced that all fans who have purchased tickets for affected events will get a full refund, along with four tickets to any Friday night show in 2018 to show the Speedway’s appreciation. Tickets will be mailed out in the new year. “This is an unexpected challenge, but we are excited about focusing on our regular divisions,” said Geoffrey. “Ohsweken Speedway is still the place to be on Friday nights in 2018.” Schedules and other plans for the 2018 Ohsweken Speedway season are well underway, with the 2018 schedule slated to be officially released early in the new year. “Drivers meetings are scheduled for this Sunday December 17, and we look forward to working with our teams and fans to make Ohsweken stronger than ever!” stated Geoffrey. Weekly Friday night racing action is again on tap for Ohsweken’s 23rd season, featuring the Kool Kidz-Corr/Pak 360 Sprint Cars, Strickland’s GMC Crate Sprint Cars, Middleport Mechanical Thunder Stocks, and HRW Automotive Mini Stocks. Stay tuned to www.OhswekenSpeedway.com for more information.
  10. What's more surprising...Hearn at 2 STSS events in a row...or...his not running many of their events on off nights in the past? Is it the A/R tires? Or does (with all due respect...) the "Corporate Jet" now looking at the STSS as a viable/important series?
