  1. Jack personified class. I didn’t have many interactions with him but one night as a kid, my Dad and I were in the pits after a night of racing at Utica-Rome. We stopped by Jacks trailer as my Dad was talking to someone he knew there. Jack came up and said hello and asked my name. Of course I told him and we went on our way. The following week, we were walking through again. Jack was standing at the rear of his car as we walked through and said “Hi Zach, nice to see you again.” It was just a small interaction but the fact that he remembered my name a week later always kind of stuck with me. RIP
  2. Big time. Hence the reason every track down there feels they need to run a minimum of 7 classes. I remember nights at 5 Mile, sitting through like 4 different classes of 4 bangers. 🤮
  3. Don’t be such a homer. Yes, lots of improvements but the fact is that the facilities themselves aren’t capable of supporting even a truck race in this day and age. I’m a perpetual optimist when it comes to racing but I’m also a realist. There isn’t a track in NY that has the infrastructure to support an event like that.
  4. Goodyear’s contract would NEVER allow NASCAR to choose a different manufacturer for a 1-off race. I’m sure drivers would have preferred a Hoosier or even an A/R option but that was sadly never an option. I’m sure if they do this again in the future, Goodyear will be able to bring a better option. While they did plenty of tire testing I feel as though there’s really no way of simulating how a track will change with that many laps on it.
  5. Bowman Gray is the exception to the rule when it comes to asphalt mods. I have no desire to go to that circus at all. The “fans” that go there are the same ones who religiously tune in to watch pro-wrestling twice a week.
  6. That’s a hell of a comparison Joe. Asphalt mod drivers are about as disrespectful as it gets. We were at Star for a Tri-Track series race a couple years ago and holy crap, what a shit show. Or basically any race I’ve seen from Wall Stadium. I haven’t been to Grandview yet but I definitely understand what you’re saying.
  7. I think this is going to be a win-win for both tracks. Drivers will now have a Friday and Saturday to run 2 tracks on the same car/motor/tire package. There was a lot of speculation that Fonda would struggle for modifieds as they were essentially on an island. This gives drivers more bang for their buck and allows those who want to commit to the Deyo/STSS combo.
  8. In the video of Matt punching Max, you can hear Matt saying “Timmy was right!” as he walked away. I’m no Matt Sheppard fan but Max drove like a choice and made a stupid, overly aggressive move for the first lap. Not the first time and not the last time the kid has driven like an idiot. Matt probably overreacted, but I think it’s time for Max to stop getting treated like a kid and own up to his shitty driving.
  9. Moving to Friday nights as a sister track to Fonda, with a partnership between Brett Deyo and Gene Cole. Wow.
  10. I would say that since they are once again DIRT sanctioned they’ll have to run Sundays. If you remember the last time they moved from Sundays to Fridays in the middle of the season their sanctioning was pulled immediately. They’re starting to build a nice little thing up on the hill and I feel that a move to a different night would be a big mistake and yet another step back. I hope that they run at least one modified show this year, so long as fans are allowed.
  11. I believe he finished 2nd or 3rd with the All-Stars at Outlaw a couple years ago. Don’t quote me on that one.
  12. I’ve also noticed that U-R isn’t on the ESS schedule either. This I find strange because Utica has been a staple on the ESS tour for as long as I can remember. Meanwhile Weedsport has all but 2 of the Sunday races, with Cornwall and the Ridge having the others. I’ll always have a special place in my heart for this track. We never missed a Sunday night as a kid, and I’ve been lucky enough to see some incredible racing there. Haven’t been in a few years because of the distance on a work night but I hope they have nothing but good fortune this year. Bill and Kim are good people and they deserve i
  13. It’s going to be a shit show. Way too much for that little track. I feel as though they’re going to look really clumsy. Kind of how Late Models look at the Gateway Dirt Nationals. A stupid novelty, IMO.
