  1. There is rubber mixed in the surface on Monday because they ran the Tulsa Shootout just two weeks before and they had well over 1000 entries for that.
  2. I think the jury is out to lunch on this one. A small track is a perfect place for wingless midgets to put on a great show, however put midgets on a large track and that can really stink up the show. I think the same thing with winged 410 sprints. On a large track they are good but put them on a small track and that could sure spoil the show.
  3. Many years back when Gene Cole had the track it was my Sunday night track to go to and it was a four hour ride one way for me. I attended 13 shows there one year because most of the shows the mods were finished by 9:00 or 10:00 and I would be out and on the road headed home. I will say that the past few years they have not had any luck with the weather. Who ever runs it let’s hope they can get the place turned around.
  4. Didn’t know that. He was alway exciting to watch at Penn Can.
  5. Didn’t Joey Grammes run a car for Getz? I didn’t see his name listed in the write up or will he continue to run a second car?
  6. Let’s hope they pick the right night to race. They are kind of out in the middle of nowhere location wise. With just about every track in that part of the state running the same types of cars. I made it there for two shows, one when the old grandstand was still up and the second time the new grandstand was there. Believe it or not Dean Reynolds was just a young fellow and sat next to me in the old grandstand the first time I was there. It was a daytime show.
  7. The fencing has to be changed; the banking on the track has to be changed. The track itself has to be changed to clay because it's going to be a dirt track race." Car racing at the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds dates back to the 1920s and ended in the early 1980s. "We've had people say, 'Why don't we bring racing back to the fair?' It's been years. I think I was a child the last time there was a race here on the fair track." Fair officials plan to hold around a dozen races, which are scheduled to start next spring. They plan to hold a sprint or midget car race during fair week. Ac
  8. TULSA, Okla. (November 5, 2020) As we approach the 2021 Lucas Oil Chili Bowl Nationals, presented by General Tire, we continue to navigate the COVID-19 Pandemic. Although we enjoy seeing the fans packed around the Tulsa Expo Raceway, for one of the greatest motorsports events in the world, we want to ensure our fans are as safe as possible. Currently, our Grandstands have been placed at a 25% capacity. With these restrictions, if you do not wish to attend the 2021 Chili Bowl Nationals, we request notification by November 20, 2020. After notification is received, you will not
  9. Head on down to Bridgeport this weekend. Three nights of racing, two nights with URC Sprints, two nights of mods with makeup 100 lap $10000 to win feature for the mods on Saturday and $7000 to win 50 laps on Sunday for the mods.
  10. I really don’t think you will see 30 cars show for these races. The SSMS had a race on October 11 at one of the tracks involved with these races and they had 9 cars and three of them didn’t start the feature. The big dollar teams that tow down there will run all over the cars from down there.
  11. Jack I have been to racetracks all over the United States and they are all different. It all comes down to what kind of material they have to work with. Every area is different. The clay in Texas is totally different then the clay in New York. The clay in Indiana is different then the clay in Pennsylvania. Some clay slicks up and some never slicks up. It all depends on what you got.
  12. We all know that those big rigs and stacker trailers always make the cars run better
  13. Weren’t Dundee, Black Rock, Yates County and Outlaw all the same track?
