  1. 5. Crowd was pretty good considering how big their stands are. 6. Non stop Sprint feature; non stop Sportsman feature #1; I think only minimal yellows in the remaining two features. 7. Picked up a fabulous ESS Speedweek 21 shirt for $20. 8. Free fireworks show from the neighbors North of the speedway. 9. Not one person kneeled, protested, bitched, complained or even left their hat on during the National Anthem. HAPPY 4TH EVERYONE 🇺🇸

  2. I went to the Pauch Racing Open House today, and all I can say is "Wow!" What a fantastic turnout. I got there basically right at noon when it started, and there must have already been a couple hundred people there. Pauch Sr. mentioned something about eating "soon" because they planned food for 800 people. I overheard one guy saying that he'd been to many Pauch open houses and had never recalled a show so well received as this year's! The history within the walls of that shop is incredible: old photos, body panels, trophies, checks, restored modifieds, and vintage racing suits. I got my

  3. There are a lot of fans that care about all the classes. Genesee is definitely driver driven. When I was there last month I never heard so many cheers for 4cyl. Seems every other person there has a local driver tee on. You never had any intention of going so why bitch?

  4. My brother doesn’t get on here so I’ll tell our story behind the 5H. The first 2 years we raced (2003) we ran car number 29, we bought a old beat up 1995 Troyer and the body was whooped, at the time we were helping Eric Kingsley/Alan Johnson combo and Eric happened have a nice set of doors and quarters that were lettered up#29 so we slapped them on the old Troyer. In 2005 we upgraded our car to a newer to us 2004 Bicknell and during the second or 3rd race into the season Chris flipped the car at fulton. We were down and out and at the time Jeff Isabell had JIR Motorsports in it’s prime and he

  5. They were going to actually run a decent amount of special shows starting last year with Tim McCreadie, but when the tragedy happened that obviously derailed their plans. I truthfully wasn't sure we'd ever see this team again. I'm glad I was wrong, and I'm sure the entire racing world will join me in cheering them on whenever we see them on the track going forward!

  6. The STSS actually broadcasts the draw from the drivers meeting now live on Facebook. They don't even put the chips in a bucket anymore, they're just laid out face down on a cookie sheet that sits in front of the trailer for EVERYONE to see. And for the feature, Jess had Parker draw for her, and Stew had a little girl from the Evans family draw for him. I doubt the STSS officials have a secret code that the 5 year-old kids understand to tell them where to draw when it comes time for Stew and Jess to draw. Can we please stop with all the talk about the draw being rigged. It i

  9. Thank you for the kind words! We have made big progress over the last couple of years and have been knocking on the door everywhere we go. It’s such a bummer putting in all that work and making it 1 lap from the finish only to have the result we had. It was definitely a roller coaster of emotions last night. We had a bunch of people come to the trailer after the race and all said the same thing…. the results may not show it but Atleast they knew you were here. That was our first time back at ransomville since 2007 when we ran our our open sportsman, last night was the first laps ever in a big

  10. I miss the excitement of getting to a race and not already knowing who would be there. The buzz the would go through the stands at Utica-Rome on a random Sunday when the mods would roll out for hot laps and Brett Hearn or Alan Johnson would be there. The thrill of going to 5 Mile on a night where every other track was raining out, seeing the Randy Ross 91 or the Freightliner 6 unloading and knowing that they would be tough to beat. In this day and age of social media it seems that all of that magic is gone. Before we even get to the track we’ve already seen a multitude of “confirmed”

  13. I will bet0 everything I own that your brother was never told that. Hospitals are not allowed to deny treatment to anyone for any reason. Nobody was more broke than I was back in 2017 when I finally decided to get looked at. I told them as I was being admitted that I didn't have health insurance and was without steady income. They said that by law, they had to treat every patient the same.

  14. I had not been to a stock car race in over a year due to the pandemic. I went out to Land of Legends last saturday and really enjoyed myself. The show was run very well, not too much dust, good food and drink, good announcer, good car counts and great racing. Feel bad for all the Sportsman cars that got tore up pretty badly. Hope they all can make it back. Just an overall awesome experience at the LoL.

  16. Heyyyyyyyyyyyyo, it's that time of the year! Doing all 3 $50,000 (or more) to win shows in one thread. Same rules as always, only posting guys that have 100% confirmed they are going (and in the case of Oswego, only counting big-blocks this year on here), nobody is listed because they'll "probably" be in attendance. Here's who we've got so far; Oswego Speedway (Super DIRT Week 200) 0 Dan Humes 2 Jack Lehner 3 Justin Haers 3J Marc Johnson 5H Chris Hile 9s Matt Sheppard 14 Brian Swarthout 20 Brett Hearn 21A Peter Britten 25 Erick Rudolph 29 Ryan Krachun 32c Max M

  17. He spends lots of time on his roof….standing with trophies and big checks. I’m a Mahaney fan, but it was quite the move he pulled. If the guy he drove into the jersey barrier was anyone but stew, both cars and a bunch more would have been piled into the fence. Not that it hasn’t been done before, stew has done it as well, and each time you see it, there is reason for someone to be upset. Part of racing.

  23. well......the crowd was HUUUUUUUUUGE . so someone will pay to sit there. Maybe some people actually do like other classes besides modifieds? And for those that only wanted to see the modifieds? Well the feature was over at 8:30pm Past your bedtime?

  24. Dude you are just a hater, clearly, cuz your statement is so far from the truth…Big D has battled weather almost every single Friday night this year except for maybe 2 or 3 shows, every single cancelation this year was absolutely 💯 legit, EVERY ONE (STSS was obviously not Big D’s decision) and in most cases this year it has rained, drizzled, stormed or did something with water falling from the sky at some point on Friday this year, where there a few times they could have canceled but they didn’t they pushed on and got the show in, and the racing like I originally posted almost always comes do

  30. This is in essence why I do not come on here as much, anymore. Jack Brady, your a prime example. I give you some knowledge about the back ground of a driver you obviously know little about, and instead of continuing the thread in that direction you bring it back to the 2 arguing about nothing racing related. Why couldn't you skip a comment about it and respond about the racing? Be part of the solution, calling to shut every page down is not it! scrolling past and not giving it an audience or response would be the better option, IMO.

  34. I have had enough with this topic. It started off innocently with a concern over tire availability. The reality is, the shortage exists and promoters and sanctioning bodies are making adjustments accordingly. How that ever evolved to Covid deaths and an upswing in numbers in LA is beyond me.

  39. In all fairness, if race cars weren’t so expensive to replace, you’d probably see more guys drive like this. It’s amazing how much a driving style can change when you’re on a shoe string budget vs a seemingly unlimited budget. There will always be exceptions to this rule (ie guys who don’t give a shit about wrecking cars, no matter the budget). I personally know a few guys that have said ‘if I had his kind of funding, I’d probably try that move too, but I don’t have the funds or time to replace parts or cars’.

  40. Went to Fulton tonight. Here is a quick summary highlighting the aspects of local dirt racing that people like to complain about: 1. Time Management - Started on time at 7PM. Took one break for 18 minutes to water track. Done just before 11pm. 2. Dust - Dust was minimal. Yes there was some...but nothing major. 3. Track Conditions - Track was slick and smooth with a brown strip around the bottom. You could pass but you had to work for it. I think Rudolph came from about 14th to 3rd and Larry started around 12th or so to win. 4. Car Counts - ~35 small blocks (started everyone

  41. The outlaw days at Fulton and Utica all featured big rubber, alcohol small blocks and sail panels. They were not the same as the East Windsor cars, but they were not just an average modified with square windows.

  44. You're talking about an era when car specs were relatively the same and it didn't take a day or two to figure out what you needed to be fast and legal when you were going to race somewhere. Way to many variables today. I wonder what the Fonda faithful thought when the fastback Ford from Jersey showed up and proceeded to kick some serious buttons. Granted that was an awful long time ago (1955 to be exact) and absolutely nothing like that could happen in this day and age. I used to sit in the top row of the bleachers at Shangri-La and look to see who would make that right hand turn into the trac

  48. Give these guys some credit!!! The results don’t show it but man did Chris run a great race. I’ve had my eye on this team for the past 3-4 seasons and I believe they are going to be a heavy hitter in the next 2-3 years. Bad brake last night with a flat tire running 4th with 2 to go. If anyone deserves a top ride it’s this team.
