  1. I really don't care if it was a new tire or a used tire. If it was so easy to come through the field with new rubber on the car, then everyone would do it.
  2. Must be a slow week in Fonda, and Glen Ridge doesn't have enough controversy about it anymore, so the new whipping post is OCFS
  3. So, when did it happen where it was not in accordance with the rules of the series? You are the one making the accusation, so it's up to you to prove your point.
  4. What always cracks me up with these types of threads is that people like to claim a conspiracy about things that are in the stated rules of a particular series. If you can point to a particular instance in which she received a provisional or a buy-in opportunity at a time that she should not have gotten one based upon the series rules, then you have an argument. Not knowing the series rules is not an excuse. If you know the rules and don't like them, then that is a different (and legitimate) argument. However, if you are going to cherry-pick one driver and accuse the series of favoritism, the burden of proof is on the accuser to point out the actual violation or instance of blatant favoritism.
  5. The mod feature was a great race. There is a difference between slick and rubbered up. They misted the track before the feature and it held up well. Would like to have seen what would have happened between Godown, Watt, and Howard if Godown didn't have an issue, because I think Watt and Howard were both quicker, but Godown would have made that car very wide. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3RrmDUrr2qI&t=67s
  6. Was happy that on Sunday, when the forecast was iffy everywhere, the three tracks running in the "area," (Bridgeport, Thunder Mountain, and Port Royal) all got their shows in with decent car counts and crowds. For once this year, rain didn't win.
  7. Can the part time workers at the track do it as well? It takes more to pull off the event than just open the gates and run the race. What about the safety crew or the ambulance, are they available...etc.
  8. Also, if you don't go to Knoxville that early on Saturday, I would suggest the Downtown Farmer's Market in Des Moines. I went the last time I was there and it was massive and took over the entire downtown like 7 or 8 square blocks with vendors, food, music...etc. and the parking was free in the downtown garages. I wish we had gone earlier in the morning instead of only spending 90 minutes there.

    Grandview

    Wait, has Grandview not put any money into the grandstand side of the facility in recent memory? I wasn't sure, I think I need you to repeat yourself at least 2 more times in this thread. No one is arguing about the condition of the "amenities" at Grandview, it's definitely rough around the edges. And yet, even though I've grown up and went to my first race at Bridgeport and live within 20 miles of New Egypt (both much nicer facilities). And although I agree that OC is making tremendous improvements. If all four of those tracks were equidistant from me and running the exact same show, I would vote for going to the race at Grandview the majority of the time, because it has the best atmosphere and the most consistently entertaining racing.

    yep, and yet it is still a fun place to go watch a race.
  11. Maybe Larson, running the entire Cup schedule, some Xfinity, about 25 Sprint Car races and at least as many Midget races, but I get your point.
  12. I don't know if the SDS Platinum deals are different than the WoO ones but it happens in the Sprint Cars every year also. Some guys sign on for the Florida and California swings, but then drop off when the local racing seasons start. Tim Shaffer and Terry McCarl have both done it is recent years off the top of my head.
  13. Charlotte has the Sprint Cars as well paying well over $50,000 a night, so even if the crowd is bigger they have to pay another purse, and they pay the Modifieds a hell of a lot more than $2000 in Charlotte, even if it's still not a "great" purse. Volusia costs 39 bucks for GA and 48 for reserved and it's packed. The pits are also packed with people....if you don't think Dirtcar is making big money in FL then I don't know what to tell you. Late Models are the A division during the Nationals, but a large percentage of that crowd is from the Northeast and Canada, so I am sure they would take an attendance hit without the mods there, especially at the prices they are charging. The one division Late Model shows that I've been to at East Bay are not nearly as full (of course Volusia has the advantage of being within spitting distance of Daytona as well)
  14. Wight has had no problem sticking it to WRG before when he didn't get what he wanted out of them. IMO Dirtcar in the NE needs John Wight more than he needs them.
