  1. Motor Mile Speedway in Virginia pulled the plug on their entire 2020 season per Speed51.com.
  2. For me hands down it was crewing on Wade Gagner's late model winning the Race of Champions street stock championship at Pocono. We didn't win at Stafford all year but were a consistent top 5 car and finished 2nd in points. We were hardly considered a favorite for Pocono. Over 150 cars attempted to qualify. Started 17th in feature and got the lead on lap 23. Won over $3500 and got a case of Coors Extra Gold for every lap we led (17 cases). 30 years later and that's still the day that stands out the most.
  3. Gov. Tom Wolf says all non-life-sustaining businesses in Pennsylvania must close their physical locations as of 8 p.m. Thursday.
  4. It's a gathering, just like any other sporting event. And Massachusetts is allowing restaurants to do delivery and take-out.
  5. This was on NAPCAR reporter Bob Pockrass's twitter page a little while ago. CDC: CDC, in accordance with its guidance for large events and mass gatherings, recommends that for the next 8 weeks, organizers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States.
  6. Did you read this article from the other thread? https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2020/world/corona-simulator/ I agree the whole deal f'in sucks but after reading this it makes a little more sense. I'm guessing that you won't see racing in NY till at least Memorial Day.

    Seriously? A driver's side hit at almost 200 mph followed by a flip followed by a 190 mph hit in the most vulnerable part of the car followed by another flip followed by sliding on your roof on a good portion of the frontstretch followed by fire and you're questioning the legitimacy of his injuries?? Seriously?
  8. We have a sad scenario at Thompson Speedway here in Connecticut. They have reduced their oval races down to 6. They are only paying the top 10 finishers in every division. Purses have been slashed by 75% in every division. The headlining SK modifieds are being paid $425 to win. However, because the Whelen Modified Tour is going to be at 3 of these shows, the pit fees haven't changed. Will still be $55 for the IceBreaker, $75 for the season ending World Series.

  9. 39 wins and 2 track championships since this comment. For me being originally an asphalt guy, the single most impressive thing about Billy to me was winning the ROC at Flemington in 1993 driving for Mario Fiore. He wasn't even planning on running there that weekend but got a call at home from Mario when the scheduled driver, Mike Stefanik, didn't show up.
  10. I'm waiting for Allen Funt to pop into this thread and say we're all on Candid Camera.
  11. Teams will be allowed to stand on their haulers in the infield again, too.
  12. I was fortunate enough to crew on the 1990 National Parts Peddler street stock winner driven by Wade Gagner. 40 lapper, 3600 to win plus a case of Coors Extra Gold for every lap led so we got 17 cases.
  13. Here are highlights from the last ROC at Pocono in 1991.
  14. In the 44. I believe he is no longer involved with Graham.
