  1. Dirtcar rule book states 363 Max ci, as long as it's a sanctioned class.
  2. Anyone know why Marlar didn't run the feature? He ran his heat race. I was told he had an aluminum block motor and people bitched.
  3. FINALLY! We just had this discussion about U-R having some bite. Maybe I'll finally head back to both tracks if they can replicate that surface. Zero reason for tracks to be black slick all night.
  4. I can tell you from experience that a driver can lose 8-10 lbs of water weight in temps like these. I lost that over the course of a three race weekend. By the time I finished the feature at U-R, I was sick, dehydrated. Almost threw up in the car. It's hell on drivers and crews. Have to be smart as team and a promoter. I don't blame them.
  5. Looks like Jordan was set up a lot looser than you, Dale. I saw Tommy stick his nose in there for a second and was thinking three wide isn't going work! Lol. Annnddd....then you were in it on the bottom. The perils of short track racing. Always a pleasure to watch you work.
  6. I simply prefer tracks that have some brown left at the end of the night. Tracks that have a bottom groove, slick through the middle and some bite on the top. U-R has been predominantly black slick after hot laps. Dusty as hell. I've been to several 360 races or tour races and couldn't see/ sat there while they did track prep for two hours. I think it was last year, it was so dusty and black in hotlaps, they pulled the sprints off to rework the track. That tore it for me and I left. On a school/ work night, with my kid in tow, I'm not sitting there waiting on something that should have been addressed the previous few days or a least that morning. The fact the All Stars had a racy surface with bite just means they've not been keeping up with the surface and giving it the right attention. Black slick freight trains is not racing. I'm not all for hammer down/ tacky tracks. Any a*"hole can keep the pedal pinned to the floorboard. I want to see racing. Plain and simple. I've ran sportsman at U-R and crewed on a championship modified team. Mid 2000s...that was a consistent racy surface. I know what a decent racy surface it can be. Just haven't seen it much the last few years. Same goes for Weedsport and why I don't go there now. Now if they could prep it every week to be that racy, I'll come back. So will a lot of others.
  7. Sad to say that's EXACTLY why I didn't go. I gave up going to U-R because of the track.
  8. Billy and the Smith Team read the track perfectly. Matt got involved in a jingle on a restart and never recovered. Fairly certain the Racing Gods have shined on Matt quite a bit already this year. Decker said it's been a long time since he's had a car THAT good. Stewie threw everything at him. Decker was perfect on the restarts and only got better as the green flag stayed out.

    Fulton SDS

    My question is how burned up the track will be after TT and heats?! Sprint cars are racing the night before, pending Mother Nature's will. If Friday's show gets in, track will be black slick taking rubber after the heats. Go to Fonda. If Friday night doesn't happen, will probably be a decent show at Fulton. Just depends on if they seal the track over Friday night before the almighty moisture hits.
  10. Yup. Scooby was third. I'm a dumbass. Lol. He was quiet about getting to third. I love the racing at Grandview. Wish it was closer. 4 hour ride makes for a long ride home. Anyone see that Gular will now call OCFS home on Saturday night? He DNQd on Saturday and wasn't added to the field as the defending track champ. Kinda surprised by that. 6th place on Sunday and now he'll be a regular at OCFS. Makes you wonder....🤔
  11. Danny qualified through his heat by finishing fourth. Was sitting third in the feature, cut a tire, and didn't make it back out for the green.
  12. Sheppard over Strunk and Umbenhauer. 50 mods showed up. Anyone who took the green got $1k tonight. Lots of big names with trouble tonight. Hell, last year's track champ didn't even qualify. Missed by one spot. Typical elbows up racing and a fast surface. Makes the four hour drive worth it.
  13. Hopefully the draw some cars from the SOS and URC. Loving this idea. Seen many Sprint races at LOL the last few years and they have been great shows. Kudos to Management. I'll be there.

    I love to complain

    I hate having to chose hockey or racing when September/October hits! Oh the humanity! Damn kids....never get to the races I want to.
  15. I doubt it. Too much other established entertainment in the area. Plus, most people get paid on Fridays. I think the reason Thunder Road in VT did so well was because there wasn't much to do otherwise, no competition. Plus the Thursday racing was established when there was a high number of people paid on Thursdays back when.
