  1. The red Sweeteners Plus hauler requires a driver that has a CDL license, Sweeteners only wants a driver who works for them so they can't just pickup a driver off the street. Sweeteners wants to pay that driver by the mile but a race team will only do 1,000-1,500 miles per week so no driver is going to take that kind of a pay cut.

    This year has had one problem after another, cars problems, engine failures, no hauler driver, etc.

    The car that was destroyed on Friday at Mansfield was a three race old Longhorn that had a 8th, 1st and 2nd in it's three starts.

    The level of competition on the Lucas Oil Late Model Dirt Series is not matched on any other dirt racing series in the country and if you are off a little you are off a ton and this year has shown that for the #39 team.

  2. T-Mac will be in one of his 2017 Longhorn cars at Volusia, it was hauled down here to East Bay after both of his 2018 cars have had 100 different issues, the 2017 car was clearly better Friday at East Bay but unfortunately was crashed Saturday night. The car was taken to fellow Late Model driver Ivedent Lloyd Jr.'s shop in Ocala were it has been repaired.

    Tim has to many resources and great people at Longhorn Chassis around him to be down for long, While they might not fix all of the issues before they leave Florida they will be back on the track in early March and I expect them to challenge for wins once again. 


  3. We can all agree John Wight saved both the Brewerton and Fulton Speedways and we are grateful for that but it's very clear that it is time for Wight to get out of the track owning business. If you choose to own race teams and race tracks you have to have clear boundaries between the two, he is using his race track to get even with another competitor for something that happened with his race team. Matt Sheppard was 100% wrong at Utica-Rome and he was fined and suspended as he should have been.

  4. Couple of things

    1.) No one is protesting the flag or anthem, this started over a year ago as a protest to police brutality against minorities, race equality and systemic racism which continues to grow under Trump.

    2.) The language used by Trump on Friday night was completely unacceptable  and a personal attack against a league with 70% of the players are African-American and since when does the white house call for private citizens to be fired?

    3.) EVERYONE has the right to protest, it's not up to me or you to decide where, when or how to protest.

    4.) On opening day the Cleveland police department decided to protest the protest by refusing to hold the flag on the field during the national anthem, I never heard anyone complain about that being disrespectful.
