    No complaints with the back gate. The front gate could use a boost.

    As to his plans for next year, which came first, the chicken or the egg? Meaning, was the decision to buy the new hauler made before his confirmation to semi-retire and take the job at OCFS ? If after, one has to wonder......what "10 or so races" are in the works?

    Coil Car

    Let's leave our modifieds alone. If I want to see UMP modifieds, I'll go to a track where they're running. Which I won't
  4. When Hearn announced his retirement, a collective sigh of relief could be heard from Middletown to Albany.

    Isn't this deja vu all over again?

    And that's called "Class".
  7. Chris Larsen may just do that, but it won't sit well with traditionalists. I've been going to the ESW 200 a long time, and the weather has been favorable for the majority of them. There's something very special about this Fall classic, drivers, owners, and fans talk about the "special feel" of this end-of-season event with great anticipation and excitement, much in the way they spoke of Syracuse (remember, ESW is older than SDW.) Also remember that the Centennial race was held up for hours in an effort to gain a more favorable track surface at night. I'll go whenever it is held, but I do prefer October. We shall see.........

    Bicknell?

    And the notch on the front left frame rail. Bobby adds a notch, Bicknell follows. The "secret" to Bicknell's success are two proven business principles: KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) and mass production, allowing for lower costs and cusomer's expenses. Just plain smart.
  9. Nice! I wonder if he saw Jeff Heotzler's car and said "Hey......looka that!" Seems to prove the old saw "Less is more."

    Bicknell?

    The pendulum will swing back..............wait for it.......
  11. Not so fast, have you read the story in AARN about the experimental TEO that Larry Wight drove in the OCFS STSS?

    Time To Retire?

    Different chassis tubes in different positions, mounting points positions, rear suspension , rpm72x explains it above. One of his cars doesn't have the"TEO" plaque behind the headrest, which I thought was curious..
  13. Another if I may? 1969 Dodge Dart 340 GTS, one-of-one, console delete, rear stripe delete, red-line tires, rallye wheels, limited slip rear 3.23 to 1, forest green , black interior, buckets, w/ wood-grain wheel and shift knob, factory Hurst shifter, my first car purchased Oct 1968 upon graduation from college. No lie, I have dreams about this car at least once a week. Here it is, but mine had the rear stripe deleted and black interior:

    A New DTD

    I agree with leroy. You guys doing a bang-up job and I trust your judgement with any changes you make (or do not make!). And, thanks so much for your ESW realtime updates. I had a reserved grandstand seat but due to an injured back was unable to attend. Again, thanks!

    Mahaney at OCFS Sunday

    Why can't he be both?

    Brett's TEO looks different under the tin than an off-the-shelf.

    Minor correction: "DANNY HAS TRASHED A LOT OF BRETT'S equipment along the way..........."

    Time To Retire?

    He's won 38 200 lap races, and 8 150's............count me in.
  19. Go thru Mike Mallett's running commentary on the right-hand side of this page.

    And I can only speculate where Brett would have finished if they could get fuel into the car.
  21. Assuming that all who have posted so far are not weekly/regular fans, I have seen during the Glenn Donnelly/Joanne Chadwick years the infield flooded a couple of feet (due to a blocked drain) and water pouring over the backstretch wall at 4:00. The downpour stopped by 4:30, a guy with fishing waders unblocked the drains, the grader scrapped a couple of inches of mud off the track, and hot laps started a 7:00. Full show (BB, SB, pro-stocks, pure stocks) was completed by 11:30 (no intermission and a whole lot of hustle by management and racers).
  22. Herein lies the problem: A single person pays for the live-stream and then sends it over a driver's facebook fan page, allowing followers to get it for free. I'm not going to mention the name of one of the driver's whom this is done for, but his number is 115. Otherwise know as "Theft of Services".
  23. They brought everybody back in APRIL one year. There' a lot of folks out there that bought Sunday only tickets because they can't make any of the other days. I have to ask, did you purchase tickets for any of the races?
