  1. Looks like they can’t catch a break this season either.
  2. Scott was that your dad that won the 50/50?
  3. So first you said charging $1 wouldn’t make a difference in attendance now you say let’s see what the attendance looks like next week? Make up your mind🤣 it was GREAT to see all the people there but it was even better to see how many kids where there. Families that haven’t been there in years where there, and I think that was the goal. Kids are the future of this sport and for a family of 4-5 to be able to come and check it out for $5 was a big deal i got in for $2 for me and my son instead of $22, by the end of the night I think I spent more money at the track then I have all season as we decided to eat dinner at the track as well
  4. Congrats to rocky on picking up the win I have been positive on fonda sense Deyo has taking over but I hope tonight wasn’t a sign of things to come. He has gotten the fans to show up again car counts are great but the track surface is a joke at best. It’s was a skating rink in hot laps. Almost zero outside groove. U stay on the bottom u win. This is a big reason a lot of fans stopped showing up over the years. Last week wasn’t a lot better but was definitely better then tonight. It was like watching a race at Utica. All this rain and this is what we have? Next week is dollar bill night. Hopefully he has a hell of a crowd but you need to give them a great track too if your hoping to get the new fans to return. This is just my opinion and I know I will get blasted for it but oh well. The positive is a great run show again. Under 3 hours. 50/50 $1600 not sure who won the sportsman we left.

    Rocky wins fonda

    Oh boy, lets just say you weren’t even close to being right🤣. By far the most fans at fonda sense the first thunder race which was over 20 years ago. 50/50 over $4000.
  6. And who said charging $1 wouldnt increase the crowd last week? I think they said $11 wasn’t the problem. Well think again. By far the most fans that fonda has had sense the first thunder race. I would have to think even after losing $10 a person at the gate at the end of the night that was probably Brett’s most profitable night of the season so far. I don’t know that for sure just a guess on my part. If so maybe we will see another $1 or even a $5 night in the future all in all a great night. The track was MUCH better this week imo. 2-3 grooves of racing. Great job to Brett and the rest of the fonda staff
  7. So double mod features this week or just the held over race?
  8. I agree no doubt. I was just saying track conditions drives fans away after a while. I would have been pissed if I was at ocfs this week. I wasn’t happy with what I seen at fonda Saturday but your right I atleast seen a race at the end of the night
  9. I funny thing is most are saying the same thing. The track was garbage. I bring up a bad racing surface about another track and I’m the ahole. It’s “springtime racing, to much rain, etc etc etc. and from what I read sense week 1 to now a lot of fans have already been not returning exactly what I’m concerned about with my home track I wish ocfs the best. And if they ever decide to stop doing timed hot laps and everyone runs a heat race I will make a few trip but until then I will only make the 200
  10. Show was over halfway. No different then any other track that gets rained out mid show. Only difference is it didn’t rain. Double features you get to pay again. Great for the ones that didn’t go and now get 2 races for the price of 1
  11. If this was about fonda he would complain that there is 4-5 different fonda topics. Sometimes you just can’t win

    Agree. I expect to see the biggest crowd in YEARS this coming week and I hope it’s a huge success. For $1 I might even get my wife to go. She hasn’t gone to a race in about 10 years

    Rocky wins fonda

    Like I said blast away. Lol. Im sorry I don’t enjoy a night out just because they got a show in. I was just offering a little advise. Like I said jmo but a track like that is why the fans stopped going in the past and I don’t want to see it happen again. Also didn’t realize a 50/50 made the race better but thank you.

    Tell that to a family of 5. $55 and this week cost them $5 That’s a pretty big deal in the fonda area.

    I don’t care what the weather is. After 3 laps of pro stock warmups a track shouldn’t be black and dusty already. That tells me that track wasn’t tore up after last week However im going to give him a pass on last night as I didn’t realize that Heroux had quit doing the track prep after opening day. Hopefully Brett can find someone with experience to do it.
  16. Did you just say it’s going to rain on Wednesday night? Better get the mowing done on Tuesday

    I just seen darwin greene got DQ after that good run. Light on the scales. And your right bill smith I might complain about a few things here and there but it could be a lot worse. OCFS had all that hype in the offseason and after a month into the season it is gone. From the sounds of it the stands are empty everyweek, surface is junk, dusty as hell and fans are pissed the top 12 each week don’t run heat races. And that’s exactly what I don’t want to see happen to fonda again. It took years to see crowds at fonda again I don’t want to see Brett lose them.

    Rocky wins fonda

    Totally agree, and that’s why I said he needs to make it perfect imo. A great show with exciting racing and min dust he could gain new fans and even people that haven’t gone in year regulars again. I’m expecting a full house

    If you think watching faster cars following a guy for 10-15 laps because there is nothing on the outside is good racing so be it. Don’t get me wrong rocky was fast and probably the fastest car all night but I think him and Jake would agree without that restart where he got by 4 cars he probably wouldnt have won. I’m not asking for a super tacky wet track but atleast give them a 2nd groove track. At the end of the night I think the right guy won. Zmahoney21 I agree Brett and company are doing a great job with the show. I just don’t want to see him lose it all like what has happen in the past due to the track. Next week imo is his biggest show and he needs to make it great, $1 he could gain a bunch of new fans for life.
  20. Wait wait wait. So DIRT is trying to find them a new date? Well that doesn’t even make sense!! We were just told on here a month ago that the promoter picks the date not dirt. So the promoter picks the date but dirt finds the raindates? Interesting
  21. Just a heads up. No Stewart or Jess tonight as they broke down in Maryland on there way home from Dover. Also no matty D as he just left the ER with a corneal abrasion

    My bad scott. And a great job by the Regional Animal Shelter as they raised over $12,000. I didn’t win anything but they had over 100 things to win.
