  1. We tried doing it once with the exact example you just gave. It was brutally exhausting and we fell off the tour. Part of the problem was that 90% of the races were at least 4 hours from home. Stewart Friesen was on Facebook live for the driver introductions, those are definitely the coolest driver intros I have ever seen at a local track and the stands were PACKED!
  2. Based on the video that DIRTcar released, this description seems accurate. I hope Max's throttle was stuck or something like that, because if that was intentional, it was a really dirty move.
  3. I caught that after I posted.
  4. Here it is. I doubt you will be able to read it as I had to shrink it so much in order to be able to upload it. This page has lots of good tire tips on it, anything from siping and grooving to tire storage.
  5. So everyone is cheating then? If you look throughout the pits at pretty much any track, there are more wrapped tires than non-wrapped tires. And that doesn't mean it's right either. The only difference I find is that if you prep tires on Monday and don't wrap them and then don't race until Friday or Saturday, the tires do tend to feel less 'fresh' than if they are wrapped. I know it doesn't make much sense, but it's difficult to explain the feel of them until you have felt the difference yourself. Whether or not it is an advantage on the track, I doubt it, but who knows... anything is possible.
  6. If I could figure out how to load an image to this forum I'd post the info directly from Hoosier on this topic.
  7. Wouldn't most of their problems be solved by just using a regular truck and trailer though?
  8. Our RR was so hot after the modified race, checking stagger was a struggle. I checked a few other RRs from different modified teams and the temp seemed to be similar.
  9. The track was very abrasive,. I'm not sure what has changed there, but I did hear that they put down a lot of calcium Thursday afternoon. Maybe that has something to do with it... Hoping someone can shed some light on this because at the start of the year you couldn't get enough heat into the tire (RR) and now its scorching hot, no exaggeration whatsoever.
  10. Just wanted to give a shout out to Paul Kirkland and team for having really good track conditions this year, given the amount of rain we have had. The track has been smooth and racey, and based on everything I've seen and heard on the other area tracks, he's about the only one to accomplish this. Last night the track had a bottom and a top and was slick in the middle. You can't ask for much better than that!
  11. Wait a minute... that sounds like Ontario too!
  12. It's the same thing going from Canada to the US. It's been like that for years now.
  13. Only 13 Modifieds finished the 30 lap feature, I think they had 24 or 25 signed in at the start of the night. It looked rough from the video I saw last night, but with the rain they got Friday and Saturday, it would be understandable this week. Hopefully they get it figured out. The track can't keep chewing up cars like that every week.
  14. To keep this thread on track; has anyone heard who will be doing track prep at Cornwall this weekend or for the remainder of the year?
