  1. Well we all know the symptoms, how do you cure the problem, without cancelling races? I am afraid with all the division/series specific tires and current raw material and production constraints, someone is going to be left without for a couple of weekends.
  2. "Addressing the Open Tire possibility, Deyo said, “Open tire rules cost money. It sounds great on paper; let them race whatever tire they want, but that translates to a team needing five, six or seven right rears, three or four left rears or right fronts in the trailer depending on the weather and track conditions. It would run most teams out of business.”" Had to chuckle at this, from the series where most of the top runners have 3 separate car and motor combinations. Hmm if he adds the the aluminum 410 it may be a fourth....All these motor rules sound great on paper; let them race what
  3. Doesn't the track have some copiability in the tire issues at these tracks? Maybe prepare a surface that doesn't eat tires. If they can't do that, then shorten the races.
  4. I always enjoyed the Race of Kings - Paid a minimal small block purse, got a ton of cars and offered like 10 Syracuse qualify spots. I am all for more 200-lap races, but can they be a 200-lap race, not a 200 lap race with a break after 100.
  5. This Leo Boyer photo was from the last year of dirt at Flemington Speedway. Would this be considered a rough race track today?
  6. 7 Division Weekly show - sounds like a long night of racing. Definitely get your monies worth.
  7. Oh I thought it was the Mike Kelly owned Z-95, must have got bad information....
  8. Thank for the clarity Keith Flach - Sorry to see the bruises. Didn't hear much about that before you comments.
  9. Hence were I got the idea from - Mat Williamson - but as Spinnin_Tires says I am clueless....Maybe if guys actually fabricated something instead of making a phone call and waiting for UPS to show up, cars would have some more ingenuity to them and the class would be more then 24 different wraps racing around in circles on a skating rink!
  10. There are a lot more variables to preparing a race track then there are to building a durable car. Promoter can't control, rain, wind, sun, humidity, but a driver can put a shock on a car with a stronger shaft can't they?
  11. I have read so much bashing of Oswego and WRG for what happened during Super Dirt Week. Many people who know me, know I am not the biggest fan of today's modifieds. My question was when 200 lap races were put on schedules, it was about drivers and crews being able to race and have a car that can last 200 laps. It wasn't always about being the fastest, but being around at the end. Why can't today's DIRT Modified drivers plan for that? It seems that as soon as a track has some character, it needs to be changed to accommodate the cars and drivers of today. Don't todays driver
  12. I can also make the same correlation that lower cost doesn't attribute to more revenue. You have a finite audience for Modified Races, with Fonda on Flo, SDS on DirtVision, then the option of Grandview on DTDTV, you are saying you should charge less to get more? What do you recommend as the price point? With the other options on Saturday, I believe you need to maximize the revenue from the viewers that you get. You can tell me with me conviction cutting the cost in half would double the views to make the same money?
  13. Maybe it is your insistence in changing the business model to what you feel is the right way. They have been doing this for a couple of years now, so there must be enough customers that are ok with the model as it currently is. If you don't like it, you don't like it, but please stop trying to convince people to change what they are doing to suit what you think is right!
  14. Would there be, or would guys have to change the way they raced and build stuff that is more durable?
  15. For the most part would arrive Friday morning, walk around the backstretch for Sprint Car inspection and check out what everyone did to run the Mile. Watch mile activities, then head to the Wheels for 100 plus small blocks. I stopped going when the Outlaws stopped racing the Mile.
  16. Give me a track with character over a skating rink any night. Now I am not saying craters, but something that you don't need a Zamboni to prepare, slick in the middle and a wet ledge around the top. Yes there is the argument that equipment is used up on that type surface, but is it possible the equipment needs to be made to take the beating?
  17. I am in Indy every year for the 500, would be neat to be able to see two Classics this year! Also the Mod Tour on June 12th should be a decent show.
  18. I think the most important difference between the SDS and STSS, is with the SDS, you only need one car and motor. With the STSS you have some teams towing two or more cars to a race then deciding on the combination that they want to use. That isn't very economical. Standard rules across both series would help everyone. Yes I know it will probably never happen, as each group wants there piece of the pie, but the various rules and mandatory products used (i.e. tires, fuels, body style) are bifurcating the top division of Modifieds in the North East. You can race a Late
  19. East Windsor used to be after 3 events - So it could have three street stock heats and it was considered a finished show....
  20. From what I understand the One and Only was a World Racing Group event They rented the track, much like they did back in May to have the first race with no fans. It is unfortunate that this has happened, and I am surprised it hasn't had a larger impact in what is happening back here with fans in PA. People can do what they want, but I know attending the larger races in PA at the end of the year, will probably not happen for me. Can't afford to get those around me sick!
  21. Port Royal added the new push off lane on the front stretch for time trials so I think that would work for real pit stops. In my opinion the marquee race for Modifieds must have live pitstops, not a break at halfway. Why run Satellite races, just do everything at Port and run at night, everyone says it should be run at night, so here is the opportunity. I would add 360 sprints and 410 sprints to the fold. There are plenty of fields around Port that could be used for Pits, Camping, and Parking. With the unobstructed infield and Tunnel you have plenty of room for a crow
  22. Well I hope the short term gain, doesn't screw it up for the rest of the tracks that are trying to race in NJ.
