  1. It's hard to call a good point "beating a dead horse."
  2. It's on the bucket list, trust me. I've been to the track while driving through to other places, but never on a race day. A friend and I were on our way there several years ago but it and everything else within reasonable driving distance got rained out too.
  3. Go back to page 2 and look at the aerial maps and measurements in the Math Problem thread (which are fairly accurate). The speeds associated with the lap times are based on the track being a 5/8 - which it is not.
  4. This rumor has been floating around for several years, especially at the end of the season. Not saying there isn't any truth to it, just saying that it has been going on for about 5 years now.
  5. Fighting like crazy with this hotel computer. Kids have been here and loaded it with free game popup messages. I've seen both Supers from turn 3 at Oswego and 410 Sprints from the Graveyard next to Beer Hill at Williams Grove. Williams Grove was the scariest thing I've ever done, but I'd do it again in a second.
  6. I don't know anything about the debate, and I haven't been to Port Royal yet. What I DO know is that for as little as Lincoln is, and for as fast as the 410's get around there, it's racy as hell and why a lot of us like it as much as we do.
  7. I'll be there pointing the camera for most of the time trial sessions like usual. I know in years past, Wednesday was always a setup day and used to iron out any bugs that might be present.
  8. Let's hope not. It's been my experience over the years that brutal fast race tracks generally don't produce the best racing. An exception might be Lincoln in PA, but generally, no. I really think a mid 17 second lap is possible under ideal conditions. And I hope Mike Perrotte and Jeff Hachmann is watching this thread and they invite a 410 Sprint Car to burn a few gallons of fuel. I've been a fan of Syracuse since I first started going 25 years ago and I am going to miss it badly. But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't looking forward to Oswego too.
  9. I'll tell you what it is right now... It's "DeAnReyN0Ldz." He'll sell you everything you need to get hooked up.
  10. And I will go on record as saying there is no way in hell a Super Modified ever turned a 150mph + lap at Oswego.
  11. One thing is for certain... the asphalt line and the dirt line will not be the same. And nobody knows yet how far out the cushion will be, or if there will even be one. The Supers carry a tremendous amount of speed and momentum into the corners at a lower point in the track than what the modifieds will, that's almost guaranteed. Is it possible that the dirt big blocks could be faster than the supers there? Only time will tell. Hey folks at WRG... I want to see a 410 Sprint Car twist off a few exhibition hot laps while there is dirt there. Can we make this happen... PLEASE?
  12. In years past, a guy needing a tire change with a soft or flat tire would pull out of line to draw a yellow, and then race around the track with the flat to "pull up" between the leaders and the pace car to minimize the chances of losing a lap under caution while repairs were made. In recent years, they've eliminated going down a lap under caution, and the only way you can go down a lap is under green flag conditions. This rule makes it completely unnecessary to pass the field and duck down pit road ahead of the leaders. It's a good rule if there aren't a shitload of cautions. But if everyone does it and caution laps count, it sucks because it chips away at green flag laps.
  13. I never asked what was said, but in that instance, 2 wrongs don't make a right. Tyler and Joe Dgien were the front row and Siri was the leader. Dgien jumped bad, no question and Tyler knew that the start was going to get called off, so he never fired. And as we saw, half of the field going and the other half not makes a big mess. I think Tyler should have fired to alleviate the log jam. And I also think Dgien should have been sent to the rear. Some people think that it's a little extreme, but it has to be that way to send the message that they won't tolerate jumps.
  14. I explained why they were so obvious. And I knew when I asked he was over 20. I didn't know he was close to 50 until he asked. And for the record, I'm busting his balls because I know him.
