  1. One of the best races I've ever seen. The last 20-30 laps were great racing. It used to be on YouTube at one point.
  2. My first hero in sports. May he rest in peace and suffer no more. My condolences to his family and friends.
  3. I believe the fastest a region can move through the reopening phases is in two week increments, so they quickest that they could get to phase 4 (which includes things like Fonda) would be like July 3 unless something changes. Again that's just my interpretation of the reopening plan.
  4. Correct on Cuomo. However, Pence is the leader of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, which um ... thought it Trumped (see what I did there) the states setting their reopening policies.
  5. Actually, this is the epitome of do as I say not as I do. This was in a hospital setting, not outdoors on some random street.
  6. 2012 Fonda season finale. Was supposed to meet my dad there. Got a flat on the way home from Maine, didn't want to go anymore but decided to go for the feature. Glad I did as it was the last race I ever went to with my dad.

  8. Super C. D. Coville to be featured guest at Lost Speedways 2018 SARATOGA SPRINGS — The all-star lineup for the Saratoga Automobile Museum’s Lost Speedways 2018 was completed this week when dirt track modified superstar C.D. Coville indicated he would be on hand to be interviewed by program organizer Ron Hedger of Speed Sport Magazine. “When the ‘Superman’ found that he was free to attend on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, it put the program over the top,” Hedger said in a news release. “We’ll discuss his extremely successful career and find out whether all the stories and legends t

  10. I think you avoid some of the fees at the window, but I know the Times Union has an arena fee to help pay for their renovation project that is ongoing.
  11. Nope but they have a few $5 lots not too far from the arena. It’s more at the arena’s parking garage. The same thing happened with arenacross tickets there. A $20 ticket goes to $30 plus with the fees. I’m not paying for a ticket and a half for one ticket.
  12. The fees are a bit much. I just checked on the Albany indoor tickets. With fees they went from $28 to $41 or from yes to no.
  13. SARATOGA SPRINGS — The lineup of speakers and interviewees for the Saratoga Automobile Museum’s annual Lost Speedways program, a look back at speedways and racing heroes of the past, has been finalized for 2017. Scheduled for its traditional “Saturday after Thanksgiving” date, the November 25th program will kick off with the annual memorabilia display at 11 am with the formal program set for 12:15 pm. “We’ll open with Ken Perrotte looking back 50 years at the amazing 1967 racing season,” said event organizer Ron Hedger, curator of SAM’s Racing in New York gallery. “He’ll recall the expl

From the track For Immediate Release Glen Ridge Motorsports Park PR www.glenridgemotorsportspark.net MOTHER NATURE WINS SUNDAY AT THE RIDGE Great Turnout Of Drivers For New Promoters At Glen Ridge June 26, 2017 (Fultonville, NY) - Despite best efforts to shake off a pair of thunder showers Sunday afternoon, Glen Ridge Motorsports Park 'New Era' Opener checkers fell to mother nature. There was a silver lining to the story, as drivers turned out in support of the fastest ¼ mile on dirt. Sixteen Crate Modifieds signed in at 'The Ridge' Sunday includi
  17. Here's the full release that is posted on the Glen Ridge website. As we struggle with low car counts and once again have been hit with 3 days of heavy rain we feel it best in everyone’s interest to suspend racing at Glen Ridge Motorsports Park for Friday June 2, 2017. Look for an announcement this week for a possible change to the program at Glen Ridge as well. We would like to thank everyone who has supported us and still supports us. We hope to see everyone again next week at Glen Ridge Motorsports Park.
  18. He was an enthusiastic and polarizing fan to be sure. He also was a historian of the sport. Here's a link to some of his photos. RIP http://www.catamountstadium.com/andyborightphotos.htm
  19. SARATOGA SPRINGS — When the green flag flies for the “Lost Speedways” program Nov. 26, Saratoga Automobile Museum visitors will enjoy presentations on a variety of gone but not forgotten speedways. Bill Ladabouche will take the audience back to the days when the top drivers from New York and New England squared off each Thursday night at Vermont’s famed Catamount Stadium, while Ken Parrotte will revisit the legendry Maple Grove Raceway in Waterloo. On an entirely different note, Brian Ross will recall the days of quarter-midget racing with Tommy Kingston, who recently donated his Offeyette

  22. Race fans might recognize one of the names involved with the company that renovated part of the fairgrounds. JOHNSTOWN - A city-based contractor has a major role in a $50 million renovation of the New York State Fairgrounds in Syracuse. The Wesson Group received a $32.9 million contract to expand the fair's midway and build more than 300 RV camping sites. The Wesson Group began work in March after winning the bid.
