    It never ceases to amaze me to watch people finding fault with anything anyone ever does. If you don't like Mandee's vlog perhaps you shouldn't watch it. Why shoud she give equal time to other competitors? I just don't get the amount of hate being shown by small minded people who are mostly too embarrassed to give their own real names when they make comments about what other people do or should do?

    Brett Hearn

    According to AARN Brett is taking a management position at Orange County and will be in charge of all motorsport events. He will not race on Saturday nights at the track and may have a limited schedule elsewhere.
  3. You'd think that the track would have the foresight to not schedule a race on a rainy day. I've never heard of this happening before!!!
  4. I think money is the biggest factor in deciding to offer the WoO late models during SDW. Declining interest in the satellite shows could be cause by people not being able to afford to take them in. People only have so much disposable income and they are voting with their feet.
  5. Don't give up on pavement tracks. Thunder Road in Barre, VT. and Stafford Motor Speedway in Stafford Springs, CT. put on terrific racing programs. I hadn't been a fan of asphalt racing aside from watching Richard Petty a few times a year on CBS back in the day until I went to these two places. I'll grant you it's a long haul from a salt water beach. but the racing is great (and now over for the season.)
  6. The SDS race at Malta on Saturday was won from the pole and the leader led all 100 laps. But it was one hell of a race! Congratulation on Demetrio Drellos on winning his first Super Dirt Series race!
  7. We still love you John. Thank your mother for the $3 check she mails me each year. Last year's was postage due but we are loyal as hell.
  8. I've been a registered user of this site dating back to the days when it was Fire on Dirt. Since I didn't have any inside information to offer I generally was/and am a lurker. In recent years it has been getting painful to follow most of the topics as they predominantly consist of people bitching about everything imaginable. I just don't get how people can maintain such constant negativity. If I was a non racefan and happened to find this forum I'd think twice about going to my first race.

    Keep fighting the good fight Bob!
  10. I used to check posts on the site at least 12 times a day and look forward to finding out information about drivers, tracks, events. While I am still here a few times every day it isn't as fun or informative as it used to be. I tend to gripe a lot but generally with my racing buddies and in private, not in a public forum. It's just a sad commentary on society in general in that we all like to complain about everything but in my experience the ones that dish it out the most couldn't take the heat if they were the ones being constantly maligned. Thankfully the racing life is still fun and I look forward to seeing my friends at the Valley for every event. While helping Lisa sell 50/50 tickets I hear from a lot of DTD users complaining about all the people that complain. It's really a shame as this is a remarkable outlet for information and you can't beat the cost.

    Hang in there Bob. It can only get better.
  12. I'm not sure exactly what they will do with the 50/50. Be sure to bring your tickets as they will definitely be in the drawing one way or the other (could be a second prize, or perhaps added to the next week's sales for an even bigger prize.)
  13. I think we had a Pure Stock race and perhaps a Sportsman heat before the rains forced the cancellation of the night's program. There won't be double features next week. (I was helping Lisa sell 50/50 tickets so I haven't a clue- obviously)

    Mr Dirt Track USA

    You need to understand that people just love to complain. It makes them feel important.

    I am sorry that you are going through a tough time and hope that you are able to make a complete and painless recovery asap..

  18. Congratulations on having such a great season! And thanks for supporting racing. Without people like you weekends would be a lot worse.
  19. Lebanon Valley has pulled the plug for July 6.
  20. If you go to Orange Count's facebook page you will see that they are spinning a wheel to determine inverting the top qualifiers.

    I didn't hand pick someone and add them to the field so don't blame me.
  22. Hi Doug: I look forward to meeting you. Odds are pretty good that Lisa will finally be back this Saturday.
  23. For the first time in years we have a wide open championship battle in the modified division at the Valley. As a fan it is very exciting. The Pro Stocks and the Pure Stocks provide epic battles every week. As a fan you can't ask for more action and excitement than what the Valley provides every single race night. The Sportsmen (not a weekly division) always put on a good show. I have to admit that at the moment Andy Bachetti is smoking the field in the 358's but the competition is pretty good in that division as well. Toss in the family atmosphere and the low cost food concessions and you've got the perfect evening and at a low cost.
  24. Thanks. I look forward to "meeting" you.
