  1. That. Brandon Ford plans on running the same rear tires Phelps did in the 200 on his Sportsman at Charlotte, that's how little they actually wore.
  2. https://www.newyorkbusinessgo.com/company/4647745/ Anyone else find it interesting the business was made just one week before they bought the track?
  3. While the DTD Super Late Model Series doesn't start for a couple months, we had time to do a test race to get familiar with the night's format. Ended up being a pretty good race so I made a video.

    Said on the PA that Maresca is going to be chasing the WoO LM tour. Safe to assume no SDS for him this year?

    Said on DirtVision last night that Maresca will only be in a LM this week.
  6. With CARS switching to UMP Modifieds, DTD has switched their sponsorship over to ISCA. Over the winter, ISCA ran the UMP Modifieds, but we are basically flip-flopping places with cars and now we will be running the Super Late Models, a car we had success with in our first dirt series on iRacing a year ago. This Monday night series will be 10 races over the course of 15 weeks. Three of the weeks off are reserved for nights where issues may arise and we are not able to run a scheduled show, essentially a raindate. However, chances are we will not need any of them and those dates will end up being fun runs and other non-points events. The other two weeks off are for real-life events in the area where many of our members will likely be. While the schedule is far from finalized, expect a start date of May 21st. As of now, I'm leaning towards a show of 10 or so lap heats and 50ish lap features. Full rules will be made available well before the start of the year. Prizes and other goodies are still TBA, but last summer our Late Model champion took home $100. Shoot me a PM if you are interested in running with us. We're not as big of a league as CARS (although we do share most of our drivers), but many members have been racing with us since our beginnings on rFactor in 2013. With DTD jumping on board with us, expect this year to be even better than last.

    Wingless Sprint Cars!

    iRacing recently updated their wingless cars, and man are they fun. Lap times are still too quick compared to their real-world counterparts, but they are most definitely improved and hands down one of the most fun cars on the game. Check it out here.
  8. Eventually, I was able to get my money back. Granted I had to go through a number of people and the whole process took well over half an hour, I got it back. Still, I didn't appreciate the massive run-around I was given in an effort to get back what otherwise would have been a donation. I'd love to go back, but I simply can't due to commitments. I am happy with the effort they gave, not many tracks are willing to wait that long for a weekly show. I guess I'm under the impression that it's relatively standard practice to give fans a refund. Weedsport did it once on a special show this year, and IIRC, Brewerton has given money back after features had started before. If there is an issue, that means there is room for improvement. I couldn't find any information regarding what happens with rainchecks, refunds, or stuff like that on their website. Hopefully the track can clear this up a little so future complications like this won't happen.
  9. So my normal home track rained out tonight, and when I left the house, Thunder Mountain had the most promising forecast to go racing. I head down there, and of course storms pop up during the drive, and it starts raining as I pull it. Apparently the track was determined to run, so I paid $24 admission for the two of us and waited. However, more rain developed and the show was canceled at around 8:20. I won't be able to come to any other race at Thunder this season, so we asked if we could get a refund, as no heats had even lined up, nonetheless ran. If the races are never ran, the fans should be able to get a refund, right? Unfortunately, Thunder Mountain doesn't operate with that logic. After consulting the ticket booth and explaining I wouldn't be able to attend another race here this year, I wasn't given a refund. I called the track office and was told "we can't give you your money back." So I drove an hour one way, paid $24, saw no racing, a refund was refused, and we were told to go away. What type of credible business operates this way? So Thunder, I ask for you to please adopt a modern policy of allowing fans a refund unless half the show is completed. While this situation is not an issue for a weekly fan, this leaves a very bad taste in the mouth of a once-a-year attendee.
  10. Congrats to Peter Britten on his first SDS win! 20th to 1st with a blank quarterpanel, someone throw some sponsor dollars at that man.

    Rained out??

    It rained hard from about 7pm on Sunday until noon today with not much dry time between. Ever consider the track might have been ruined during that time period and soaked to the point that it couldn't be properly prepared by race time? I still see small puddles in my driveway as I write this, 25 miles east of Weedsport, and I definitely didn't get any more rain than they did.

    SLM in-car @ Eldora

    Ride along on a decently slick Eldora Speedway during the ISCA TSRC TV Super Late Model season opener. Mainly just testing video settings trying to get the best I can with the program I got.
  13. If you don't have this game yet, get it. It's fun. Don't believe me? Watch this.
  14. The new ride is ready to roll.
  15. The cars are a lot faster reacting than I anticipated. Reminded me a lot of the old OHM Modifieds for rFactor. First laps were sketchy (ignored all of iRacing's advice and jumped straight into a SLM at a fully slicked off Volusia), but after a few hours I can usually place the car where I want to. Its so much fun. Anyone interested in a Monday night league using either the PLM or SLM, contact me. We won't be starting until early/mid May, but things are already well set in place. Everything is great!
