  1. Just got off the phone with Bobco and he informed me that 45 spots in the mall have been reserved and there are only 35 spots left. Bobco would like to thank all those that have registered and looks forward to filling the rest of the spots soon. There is room for Go Karts and the Racing Lawn Mowers. Those spots are separate from the 35 remaining Race Car spots.
  2. Last year, what use to be the Fonda Speedway Car Show became The North East Race Car Show. Bobco took over the show and made it an all inclusive car show for the area tracks and race teams. Before last years show was over, Bobco already had the 2020 dates for the show. Fonda Speedway is more than welcome to the North East Race Car Show and so are the race teams from Fonda. Apparently, Fonda Speedway wanted to have a show all of their own. That's great. It'll be a good shot in the arm for the mall and the stores in it and for the race fans who will have the chance to see the cars at 1 or both of the shows.
  3. The North East Race Car Show will be held at the Via Port Mall in Rotterdam, March 13--15. 2020. Cars will be loaded into the mall on March 12th @ 9;00pm. Modifieds, 358 Modifieds, Sportsman, Pro Stocks, Street Stocks, 4 and 6 Cyls, Sprint Cars, Drag Cars, Go Karts, Cage Karts and Sling Shots from ALL of the area Race Tracks ( Albany-Saratoga, Fonda, Glen Ridge, Lebanon Valley, Devils Bowl, Utica-Rome, Dodge City and Caroga Creek) are welcome to attend and are encouraged to call Bob James (Bobco) to solidify your spot in this years event. Bob can be reached from 9:00am to 5:00pm at (518) 399-0937. There are only 80 spots available for the show. After the 80 spots are taken, there will be a waiting list started in the event of any cancellations. Once you've called Bob and have a spot assigned to you, a Car Show Form will be mailed to you to complete. Bob is expecting to have all the spots filled just like last year. So call him. The sooner the better.. Don't miss out on being part of the 1st Car Show in the Capital District for 2020.
  4. Go on Craigslist/Daytona Beach. Lots of tickets for sale on there. As in all cases of buying tickets online, BE VERY CAREFUL...
  5. Great seats for Super Dirt Week available for Saturday and Sunday. Front stretch Section L Row M seats 200 and 201. They are end of the aisle seats right across from the flag stand. End of the aisle is on your right side, $180.00 for all 4 tickets which is face value. These are not my tickets but I have sat in these seats the last 2 years. I am not going to SDW this year and just posting this for a very good friend. If interested please call 518-428-4002. They can be brought to you if you are going to Fonda Speedway this weekend, The Fulton 200 next weekend or the beginning of SDW at Oswego.
  6. This may all come down to the track surface at the lap 100 break. If the track has multiple grooves and passing is not an issue, then going pit side to change tires and making other changes is probably what most the teams will do. If the track locks down to 1 groove or passing is not easy, how many will stay on track and just refuel and pray that the tires will last another 100 laps ?? How many cars will be a lap down by the break or even later in the race?? Don't forget what happened at the Firecracker 50 earlier in the year at Fonda.. A late tire change could do it again.. All the questions yet to be answered. I think the big winner will be all the fans that get to enjoy a nice fall weather weekend of racing. I've got my seats for the weekend and can't wait til Friday... PS: The driver's will be coming through the stands on Saturday with their helmets as they try to help Bobco (Bob James) the videographer at Fonda Speedway for over 25 years who is battling cancer. Let's fill the helmets and help out a person who has dedicated his life to the sport we love.
  7. I personally would like to thank all of the race teams and friends of Bob James (Bobco) that donated items for his benefit last night at Albany-Saratoga Speedway. Special thanks to those who handled the table for the raffle items. Bob is overwhelmed by the outpouring of support for him while he courageously battles his liver cancer. Thank you to all of the fans for supporting the raffle and those that just donated money. You all helped Bob in more ways than you can imagine. Bob had a really good day yesterday and all of you helped in uplifting his fighting spirit to beat cancer. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. Please keep Bob in your thoughts and prayers. He looks forward to the rest of this weekend at Albany-Saratoga Speedway, Fonda Speedway next weekend then Super Dirt Week. PS: Thank you (Krazy) Kenny Martin, Sheldon Martin and all of those involved with getting Bob's Pro Stock Car "Thunderstruck" to the track last night. Also to those at the speedway for playing AC/DC's song "Thunderstruck". What an amazing tribute for Bob. Then to top everything off, Kenny brings the car home in 5th after starting 20th.. Bless all of you for what you did to get this big undertaking done.

    Turn 1,2,3 or 4

    The turn 3 bleachers on the backstretch at Flemington.. As good as turns 3-4 are at Fonda ,nothing else compares to Flemington. Especially when Super CD Coville ran there.

  10. Looking forward to another great night of racing at The Track of Champions. Mod Twin 20's tonight. After his spectacular run in the Firecracker 50, maybe they should offer Stew a bonus if he starts last and wins. He's got 20 laps which is 1 more than he needed last time (19) after suffering a flat tire and going to the rear.. I hope they raise a lot of money for Autism tonight with the raffles and Chicken BBQ. I'll be contributing to both...Gonna have some great weather tonight so go support your local dirt track.. Enjoy the races..
  11. Thanks for the news Scott. I guess I know where I'll be grabbing dinner.
  12. According to the HFR Facebook page, the truck is brand spanking new and was nicknamed "Batmobile".. I wonder how the other GMS trucks got through tech since they are all coming out of the same shop ?? Possible conspiracy theory.. NASCAR didn't appreciate the Dale Jr. interview with Gary Balough and this is their way of evening the score since Gary is associated with HFR.. I guess we'll have to wait until the beginning of the week when NASCAR drops the hammer on the HFR team. A real shame if this costs Stew a shot at the Championship..
  13. The only reason why I put my blanket down on Tuesday was the fact that there was NO RESERVED SEATING.. Good thing I got there when I did as the seats I usually sit in already had blankets on them. I guess it depends on where you sit at Fonda. The covered grand stand seats were mostly taken when I got there at 5:00 pm on Wednesday. There were just a few here and there. Really doesn't matter what seat you had for the Firecracker 50, you weren't sitting in it the last bunch of laps.. Everyone was on their feet. Every time Fonda Speedway has a race that will be televised it ends up being a fantastic finish.. I can't wait for the 200.. If you want to sit in the covered grand stands, RESERVE YOUR SEATS NOW !!!!!! They are only $62.00 for the 2 night package.
  14. Good thing there's no saving seats with a blanket in the covered grandstands for the Fonda 200.. Every seat in the covered grandstand is numbered and is reserved. I already have my 11 reserved seats for both nights. The bleachers are general admission and I'm sure a bunch of people will have their seats saved. I think they'll use garbage bags instead of blankets in case it rains so they won't have a wet ass.. jmo Everyone have a safe and enjoyable Independence Day..
  15. A bunch and I mean a whole bunch of people already had blankets down. I wouldn't be surprised if some people left their blankets from Saturday night.Oh well.
