  1. I noticed right away that Gibson sure looks different....I know him well from the many times he has come to the trailer @ Volusia & he sure looked different.....maybe he's been ill? John & Ric Eshelman are worth the price of admission when they announce
  2. I would rather watch Don Slover hot lap his car live than watch Nascar IRacing.....LOL
  3. I can remember the songs they played over the PA while the track was being packed in the late 50's......."Sleep Walk" by Johnny & Santo & "Yakety Yak" by the oasters as well as "Sweet Nuthins" by Brenda Lee.....showing my age.....LOL
  4. Sept 5, 1971.....I qualified for the Utica-Rome 400 with a small block against the top drivers in Nascar Mods including Richie (who won both 200 lap segments), Flemke, Charland, Bugsy Stevens, Lazzaro, DeSarro, Cook, both Hensley brothers, Hank Thomas, Romano, Bernie Miller, Dave Lape & others
  5. George, you don't think that there isn't some influence from certain Dirtcar officials?
  6. Like I said, if Dirtar isn't going to make any money off it...they ain't gonna allow it...period!
  7. Anything Dirtcar can't make money on will be disallowed.....

    WRG Huge Void To Fill

    Tom is a great guy.....maybe he could somehow get together with Brett Deyo....those two together could build a national series that would be second to none

    thank you

    Ryan Newman

    What were his injuries....anyone know?
  11. nice try, but what was told to Jeff (my former boss) completely contradicts what you just said.....My health has forced me to no longer work as a vendor, but it is just not fair to take it out on Jeff because of my critique of the way SDS is operated
  12. Be careful...he'll run to Dean & tell them you're bashing the SDS & they'll threaten you or someone you work for....I know from experience!
  13. You can't compare BB racing from Volusia to NYS racing because Volusia has a track condition that is 2nd to none as far as bite & the NY tracks are skating rinks
  14. Just learned that John Andretti has passed away after a long battle with Colon Cancer. As a two time Cancer survivor I know what John had gone thru in his long fight & am glad his suffering is finally over......another good guy gone way too soon....RIP John
  15. No.... they run as their own sanctioning body, same as Ess except they schedule wherever they want
  16. No need...Patriots race wherever they want & don't answer to any other sanctioning body
  17. Because Brett Deyo is the promoter & WRG is totally against STSS owned by Deyo....I know the feeling Scott, they do whatever they can to disrupt Brett's endeavors. I think they're upset because he's forcing them to up their game.....They have gone so far as to threaten my FORMER employer because of my criticism of the way some races are run
  18. Depends on how many trips he needs to run to the toilet because of the Hershey squirts he gets from drinking that crap.....LOL
  19. It doesn't matter....Patriots are as good as ESS....maybe even better......at least they aren't joined at the hip with WRG
  20. and the fact that it takes forever to run a race because they can't go 2 laps without someone spinning out & then driving away as soon as the caution is thrown
  21. Sorry Gasket, but once again you & I are going to disagree on a young racer.....I firmly believe that this young man has a ton of talent, but to put a kid at this age behind the wheel of a BB Modified is just plain foolish....their brain which controls reasoning among other things is not fully developed until at least age 17 & IMO is a danger to the adult racers at that age, let alone his own safety....this is just my opinion, but is sure something to think about
  22. yes, but not too many that are run by Brett......If I recall correctly I think that the sprints @ Fonda were Patriots or CRSA......bottom line is that there apparently is a feud between WRG & Brett Deyo
  23. Ryan told me @ Fulton 200 last year that he would love to run the STSS, but he didn't have the motors to compete with their motor program
  24. You're right......they pretty much stick to Dirtcar & usually won't with STSS or it's tracks.....I'm not absolutely sure, but I think that is what I think....That doesn't mean they don't have a good program, just that they are particular ????
