  1. That all depends on the model and make of the tablet. Mine was an extremely basic Android based Lenovo. For plug in features, it had a slot for a micro SD card, an earphone jack and the jack for the charger. That's it.
  2. That was insane. Hopefully the push truck driver never pushed again.
  3. I started going to Rolling Wheels weekly in 1976 until they went to specials only format in 1981. That's when I started going to Dundee weekly. I still am on a streak with Rolling Wheels though. Haven't missed a show there since I started going weekly.
  4. A quick and funny story. I used to hit a bunch of the early spring events in PA between Speed Weeks and the NY season got started. I'd meet up with a bunch of my buddies down there and they were all Greg Hodnett fans. It's not fun sitting in the stands with your friends when you are all cheering for the same guy, so I picked Freddie Rahmer to cheer for. Most of the reason was because everyone else hated him. If you ever want to feel uncomfortable, be the only guy in the stands cheering for the number one villain of the PA Posse. And I admit... when on the mic, Rahmer can definitely rub you the wrong way. But then Bruce Ellis can too, so I don't know where to point the finger first. And here is where it gets funny. I was also (still am) a fan of Sammy Swindell, and NOBODY treats the press as bad as Sammy can. What made me a fan - and I will argue this with anyone - there is nobody more exciting behind the wheel of a sprint car than Sammy Swindell when he's fast. Nobody. I've seen him do wheel stands the entire length of both straights so high that the push bumper scrapes the track. Most guys burp the throttle and get the front end back down. Not Sammy... he rides it out. I've also seen Sammy hit the outside wall so hard that you'd think a part of it was stuck in his nerf bars and he was going to have to retire for the event. Not Sammy. He just mashes his foot to the floor until the car breaks or it blows up, and we've seen that too. Unfortunately, Sammy sometimes takes innocent victims with him and that even makes me mad.
  5. As long as he has the newsprint to back up his notes, I can't wait to see it.
  6. I've got a feeling that Hanna is going to need a lot longer than a winter to conquer Will Cagle's win list and believe it can never be accurate because he raced in many divisions and a ton of tracks up and down the east coast. Tell Bill I wish him luck and look forward to his results.
  7. What is it with you people and the name calling? Within the last 6 hours we are calling people liberal morons, conservative morons and assholes. Talk about a joke... I suspend members for 30 days for the offense and they cry to the owners begging for mercy and reinstatement. We wonder why kids act the way they do these days? Look no further than their parents.
  8. It was my understanding that anyone who won any feature at any DIRT sanctioned track that year qualified for the Winners Classic. And as you said, the starting lineup was determined from using SDS results. You can call the event a gimmick if it makes you feel better, but that was never the intention. Toward the end, the drivers and teams starting mid field or worse turned it into pit stop practice session. Instead of cutting it from the schedule, they could have just closed pit road for anything short of a flat tire.
  9. The Winners Classic was one of my favorite events during SDW and I was pissed when they cut it from the schedule. But is invitational the right word? The criteria for qualifying was winning a feature that year at any DIRT sanctioned track, so there WAS a qualifying method in place for anyone to attempt.
  10. Paving Rolling Wheels might get a little interest in the beginning, but that would guarantee death in the short future. In the current NY asphalt world, Holland, Lancaster, Spencer, Chemung, Evans Mills and Adirondack Aren't exactly setting the world on fire. Perry is doing well I am told, but this only recently and after clinging to life support for over a decade. That leaves Oswego, which probably would be troubled without Super DIRT Week to fall back on.
  11. Surely you jest. Now you're asking people to actually get facts when it's much easier to make shit up and see how far it flies on the internet.
  12. Exclusional is saying "everyone welcome but this guy" who just happens to be the odds on favorite.
  13. Just playing Devil's Advocate here, but wouldn't the opposite of "invitational" be "exclusional?" If so, then the 2018 and 2017 versions of the Outlaw 200 should carry asterisks.
  14. Rolling Wheels opened it's doors in August of 1969 and ran just 4 times that year. It didn't run again until it's Grand Opening event on the July 4th weekend of 1970 running Friday nights continuously until 1981 when Glenn Donnelly went to the specials only format. When people say there is no room for Rolling Wheels in the schedule, they forget that Weedsport is now running the specials only format as well. Our race season traditionally is about 17 events long. Some of the shows are run mid week, not just on Sundays which creates a bigger window to work with. If someone were to come into Rolling Wheels and work side by side with Weedsport, it COULD be a benefit to both tracks, and especially so if there were a 2 track points system in place right from the beginning.
  15. It also provides a 3rd opportunity for people who love the track but live in far away places to get there. I can't imagine all 3 shows being identical to the others. I am thinking there will be a different support class each night with various perks to both teams and spectators alike. Paul Cole is no dummy and I'll bet he would agree that 3 identical shows would be overkill. I'm curious now what goes on the undercard to keep them different from each other and enough of an enticement for people to want to attend all 3.
