  1. Your splitting hairs here , they do have automated machines cutting out body panels , what they call them IDK .....Also I don't get the hating on Deyo / He already banned aluminum blocks while ago after one team ran them in 2018 ?.....He did 1 hell of a job at Fonda in 2019 He paid out $494,770 to racers during season and then another $50,000 in point money for total of $544,770 Included in that was Rocky getting over $10,000 track champ money ....Please name 5 tracks that paid out anywhere near this for this style racing in 2019 .......On STSS tour they averaged 41 cars in BB/SB for year and had 232 different entrants in 602 class .....Deyo paid $53,000 to win Fonda 200 and over $125,000 purse also had 50 lap Mod race at Fonda that paid $10,000 to win .....Last week Sheppard took home $58,000 plus from STSS series point fund .....WTH has guy gotta do to get some credit for first year at a track on way out ?
  2. Well it has been said SF won Fonda 200 $53,000 with 358 against Pro Power BSB in Rocky and MS cars which finished behind him .. and I think CNC style machines are now used for body panels at Bicknell and DKM and are used to machine alot of parts sold and I believe Teo, Bicknell ,DKM use them and Troyer has new Bend Tech Dragon for cutting steel ......I'm probably wrong again about this all...And I think Deyo has top series at this time in DIRT style Mod racing I watch both DIRT & Deyo series live .
  3. What ?.......modern racing is what ?....It's stupid money in my mind I see Dunn/ Benson have used pit cart for sale cost $25,000 new , gotta have one of those I see where fastest BB at Devils Bowl , VT 2019 was Hearn 104.548 mph......(MS &SF were also there ) ....Fastest 358 SB also Hearn in 2019 on same day 103.069 mph ....So it looks like lets say he had w/16 at a cost of $13k new in SB and BB cost near $50k....now that's $35,000 more +or - to go 1 mile per hr faster......I believe with weight adjustments that SB will match BB speed and I can't see anything negative by doing this .....W/16 has won 2 Super DIRT races against BB so i can't see argument that these sealed motors will not work .....IDK but for $19,500 complete with carb plus $3000. for aluminum block complete LS Wegner 427 Warrior wet system with proper weight breaks could save some teams good money .......I have seen wet system finish 4th in BB at Syracuse (200 laps ) so not going to listen that this will not take the abuse or work at Saturday nite tracks ......Maybe HC will let someone try this BB 427 Wegner with weight breaks.....Why not and like the w/16 made by same people when it wins what are modern racers going to say ?...I would not be surprised if Deyo is first to try it ....he seems to think outside the box with rules and purses.....And Bayko I don't claim to know to much about racing past or present...But I do use calculator to figure cost of doing business once in awhile ......
  4. No new rules for Deyo's series or Fonda so what's problem ? And if BSB ( Pro Power ) Ford $48,000 prices and up are to high for Fonda or others just keep giving w/16 and spec 358 more weight breaks It's 250 lb now Go to 300 to 350 lbs and problems over Simple But racers don't like simple non drama solutions .....Someone ( car builder ) has DIRT's ear that's why BS is going on I would guess......Since Bicknell sells the cars( hundreds ) Facebook shows 10 cars in one 53 ft trailer being shipped and owners ( son ) wins all big races IDK why they haven't lobbied hard for Wegner w/16 and new spec Wegner LS 427 more weight breaks since they also are only ones selling .They have Cars, Tires ,Parts ,Motors and Purses locked up now ......Similar to ( Sheppard ) Rocket house car in WOO series LM..$600,000 2019 total winnings ?...crumbs left......They have all feedback from several hundred cars Feed info to computer and Automated CNC fleet of machines and they are ready to shop vac money from drivers , owners and tracks ......This is not the old days no more.....When mother ship shows up with Storm Troopers best load up .....💀
  5. How about new Wegner LS 427 DIRT Spec motor , At 2019 PRI Show .....$18,900 W/O carb......$19,500 W Carb 850 Holley ....Sealed Motor wet system , complete all front belts , pulleys ...$6000. estimated rebuild cost ......W/16 has won Oswego .....Eastern States 150 ....this will work with rite weight breaks......
  6. How about Deyo's Florida deal first year SB ,BB show Thursday $5000. Friday $7500 , Saturday $10,000.....or save your equipment for Valusia next week for $2000. to win during mid week and $5000 Saturday which is a little better than Deyo's 602 Florida swing .......I belief DIRT has been paying $2000. to win for 25 years or less for Mid Week shows......but they don't race for money they say and travel 3000 miles to race ....Sharp business men....
  7. Not all humans are friends .....Yep I agree some lowlife just broke into my office 15 ft off ground with stolen ladder....Trying to decide bear traps or neck snares or hiring TopDog.....

    Coil Car

    I would think (LFR ) Troyer would hire top runner to get their car back up front ......They have gone backwards since MS left and didn't LFR sponsor MS first year on his own ? Rite now all clones in BB class.....Time for USA car to take crown again....
  9. They all would be there if they had BSB and had run alot of laps on ARs .....MS has run as much or more on ARs this year and is leading points in North & South Deyo series races on ARs plus (Outlaw )....I'm thinking he has Pro Power BSB and has decent shot at winning this race Anyone who changes tires gives up position at half way break so I think this is going to be possibly good race with strategy coming into play big time ......If you don't try to win $53,000 ?...Never Bitch about Mod purse again......I would not be surprised if any combo wins ....BB...358 or BSB or W16......
  10. He picked up ride at ESW in Bicknell 358 after motor issues last year , Vermont car ....was dominate and won only to be found few lbs under weight because regular driver out weighted him by alot with no time or just didn't think of weight issue ( I doubt that will happen again ) $15,000 lesson......
  11. Bruno will be player (promoter ) in future if he has time and a mind to be......I can see a $20,000 to win 602 race at DB in future and open BB /SB $25,000 plus also with rite sponsors.....
  12. Fool statement ....Miller keep children off here .......Just name the great talent that races today MS hasn't beat........ Don't talk nobody will know how dumb your statements are .....I would not think anyone who races all year is to concerned with Fulton 200 Ice race .....We just saw that Friday at Brewerton by same outfit......Williamson is good on ICE he was leading Fulton 200 last year and broke ...He won this year in 358 (W/16 ) tour race .....Several 50 lap and 100 lap $10,000 to win races this year so this is not the big draw it used to be ....MS is best on track with some ANY grip .....I think most are looking at Fonda 200 for $53,000 plus lap money then Oswego ...If you are not good on ICE stay home and I pulled around $22,000 in late 80s outa Fulton in first two trips there on drag rubber.....Payoff has not kept up with times in my mind it needs to be $50,000 plus to regain image it used to have yearly...... Deyo first year at Fonda paying $53,000 plus to win and this guy is a racers promoter BB & SB &BSB running on ARs......
  13. Don't forget views......overall nice place .....28 to 30 602s weekly....plus limited ....BB/SB show they say biggest crowd in 30 years....
  14. Matt Sheppard stated in Ken Bruce article that they were on unsafe track and that was one concern , I'm sure his own health was a concern plus fellow drivers He had never seen so much home cooking and they changed rules 4 times while waiting to restart race and very disappointed in other teams lobbing officials to change what they already agreed to .......Someone said this outfit feels drivers are there employees when at track ?.....That's good , great no problem .....Posters don't seem to want to hear his side of story because they won't post his thoughts in article here ....With his education and degree in Engineering from RIT he just may be as sharp as track owner in Civil Engineering or anyone working at OC.......Per request I did do a little digging and New York , OSHA has found some serious safety violations with some of players at OC ...Which resulted in some real bad things ...I will let others tell the rest and what brought OSHA to sites......Stand your ground (huh ) ........In my business that line usually results in person using it finding the ground in short order .....I hope OC keeps improving place ,that investment and Safety improvements continue which will make this track one of the best in New York no doubt but don't use Matt Sheppard to cover your lack of management skills ( because OC is lacking and racing world knows it ) and in his place I would'a probably said worse but it did get tracks attention and some good solid people seemed to agree with what he was saying in video Your people put him in untenable position I have no respect for people who flat out lie to people risking there lives for them.....Hire BH to run track management end would be great move Because his Big Show blows your Big Show out'a the water in most all areas......
  15. No wonder some drivers were edgy at Rain Gate they were kept up all nite before because of gunfire and pushers trying to sell drugs at there RVs.....Was this considered by management before penalties were handed out ??..... And thank you for this info ......I won't be at ESW for sure ......
