    Wait...her videos are about racing?
  2. Oh no...over 150 combined Modifieds in Oswego! How are they ever going to have two successful shows on the same weekend...?
  3. That kid earned it. Think of the names that were within touching distance, and he just pulled away from them. Sheppard, Wight, Decker, Williamson, Friesen. There was no running and hiding, he was just better.
  4. In what world should a business not treat a competitor as a competitor? Deyo and WRG are competitors. I have no problem with the double scheduling. In fact, I appreciate businesses offering me choices and competing for my dollar. The complaining here is similar to going to Wendy's and complaining that you can't get a Whopper. In my professional life, I run a business of size. If my competitor is doing something that would give them an advantage, I need to do whatever I can to position myself appropriately. Competition drives value and choice, and usually it is the consumer (in this case, the drivers and fans) that benefit. For too long, I have felt promotors have treated tracks as cash flow entities, not as sustainable businesses. I applaud both Deyo and the LoL team for focusing on value offerings. It wasn't that long ago, Modified racing was frankly dying. Now, we have multiple tracks, offering nice purses for the investment, and choice to the consumer, and this upsets people? The fact that both these shows will have strong, full fields, should be celebrated. Modified racing is stronger, because of the choice. End of speech.

    Fonda 200 - No Rudolph

    I live 40 minutes from Fonda, and would rather go to Canandaigua myself. Always enjoyed the racing more. The bigger question for me is whether Fonda will get enough fans to cover the purse?
  6. I've been to basically all of them in NY, and very little beats a relaxing night at Woodhull.

    Dippel suspended

    He bought a used backpack from Perrego. He didn't know what was in it.
  8. I have no idea why anybody would invest their capital in dirt racing any more. From what I heard from multiple people, it was actually good racing. Racing promoters seem to have the popularity of attorneys anymore. We haven't seen this much money since the old DIRT days, and everybody acts like Mr. Larsen has personally insulted them. This is between Matt and Mr. Larsen, nobody's opinion matters. Mr. Larsen's sandbox, Mr. Larsen's call. That is until somebody can put up their own money and buy it from him.
  9. Does anybody else feel like taking the day off of work and going to the track tomorrow to move all the blankets around?
  10. I generally live by the rule that you get what you pay for. One of the main reasons I don't fly JetBlue or Southwest, is because I can't reserve my own seats. Peace of mind is worth the cost to me.
  11. It is so much fun to watch a conversation devolve from somebody being DQ'd, to NASCAR, to college vs. pro football, and ending up at flying cars. I wonder where we will go next.
  12. Danny Johnson earned that football money and can spend it however he wants! Wait...
  13. I have felt for a while that there are too many tracks. If not too many tracks, at least a lack of promotional skills at the tracks that do exist. John White took a risk with switching Fulton to 358s, and it is making a difference. He has made a believer out of me. When all promoters follow the same blueprint, it just becomes bland. In terms of the SDS...I'll take a regular show at Woodhull any day, and keep the $20 difference in my pocket.
  14. Mod snob mostly, but I do occasionally watch an Indy Car race... Like I've said before, however, racing ends when hockey begins.
  15. Going to the race track is my off-season hobby. As a USA Hockey Official, winters are pretty busy.
