  1. This post is kind of annoying. Just like the rest of the touring series it takes a ton of money to be a touring driver, and when the tour that your bringing has 85 to 90% of the field towing in from 11+ hours and a small local pool you get what you get. This year, while the car numbers might be lower, there really hasn't been a year where the fall off between the fastest cars, to the rest of the field is so slim. The quality is the highest its been on an eastern swing between the touring drivers and our locals. Like already mentioned, basically the whole top 15 in national points showed up, plus the very best from the USAC Eastern Series for those who have a 410 or want to try with a 360.
  2. So with USAC they usually take a varying number based on car count. But the fastest qualifiers start 6th in the heats. the benefit of it, is then that you receive your time back for the feature event. So if you win your heat, and were the quick qualifier you then usually have the front row for the feature. Also they pay points out for qualifying, heats and obviously the feature so every moment you're on track matters. It proved evident last season as Courtney and KTJ tied for the points, but Courtney had more feature wins.
  3. Personally I do not like the straight up heat line ups based off of time trial times. But they can still provide good racing on the right tracks. I really like what USAC does. USAC takes your top qualifiers and they then start 6th in the heat races after the inversion.
  4. Must be miserable sitting at home for weeks on end because your precious Bridgeport hasn't run and you're too good to go to Grandview, so you just sit and wait for Diamond Dog to comment that Big Diamond cancels because of weather, what a life you live!!
  5. Very cool for whoever made this
  6. well as a bit of an update to this. It was posted on Matts racing page that they "worked things out with Joey" and will be returning to NES this weekend for their Twin 20's
  7. Because you ALWAYS have something to say about Big Diamond or Grandview. You "expressed your opinion" of them "looking for an excuse to cancel" when they damn well had the grounds to do so the past two weeks, but when others get on you for that, you always revert back to snarky comments instead of just saying "hey maybe I was wrong with that"
  8. Its pretty funny watching you try to be the tough guy on here when people give you sass back for your stupid comments.
  9. The team will be traveling around a lot more this year mostly because of the above mentioned reasons. Plus it also doesn't hurt that Bridgeport has some pretty damn wacky rules going on right now and it doesn't hurt that the regular season opener for the track doesn't even happen until May 4th. Like this passed Saturday, Ryan will also run with URC in a 360 sprint car when his schedule allows.
  10. "Big fish in little ponds" So does that make every driver that is the top driver weekly at their home track one? or Just Gular, Howard, Strunk, and CVD since you have issues with Grandview.....
  11. What are you talking about? It clearly states he went through for work purposes not to go to a track for a race......
  12. Im honestly not sure what the field will look like this weekend. With no Deyo or SDS races at the track this year I'm not sure how many NY cars will make the trip down. It is however, basically the only mod race this weekend so we will see.
  13. what are you talking about? Any video from the past year would have had the old junk dirt not the new stuff. Check out their facebook page for pics of the new clay.
  14. This thread is hilarious lol. I'll say this, I was at Trenton Saturday as I missed last years show. Its a really really cool event with a lot of talented drivers running. Ill definitely try and hit more than just Saturday next year
  15. Lets hope they got a bigger and stronger fence. Ive seen 600's and Speedstr's bend and take down parts of the fence they have now, and a heavier, faster midget would surely do more damage.
