  1. I guess since I've been name-checked in this thread I should chime in, sorry it's taken a while, very busy these days (good thing): Let me address a few points: -Yes, I've been doing Outlaw on Fridays, and Thunder on Saturdays. -NO, you don't want me to sing the National Anthem, I can't carry a tune with a bucket loader. -Chris is something the sport desperately needs in our area: A young, talented, passionate individual with the desire to learn and get better. Believe me when I tell you that I sucked for a LONG time (and some might think I still do LOL) and I'm still lea

  2. In recent post I wrote that Bobby Varin was singled out for tech on Saturday, but I was wrong. I don't know how many other cars were teched, but based on what I've been told I was more than just Bobby. I further suggested that it was done with malicious intent, specifically to show disrespect for Bobby and the 18V team. Looking back that was a completely unfair characterization and I apologize without reservation to Bret and the staff of Fonda Speedway.

  4. My son and I are going to Utica Rome, because it's 10 minutes from my house. I just love the place, it's the track I grew up going to, and would always choose UR first over almost any place else. Another positive note. We took 2 of my sons friends to Fonda a couple weeks ago. The first race ever for both of them. Both called and asked if they could go with us tonight. I think they caught the bug. Lol

  5. ... of Matt cramming his over-sized ass into Derrick McGrew Jr's car? Derrick is fairly tall for his age, but Matt is like a maple tree without leaves. I envisioned him as having his knees along side his head ... kind of like a woman in stirrups at the vaginacologist's office. Since I had to suffer through this disturbing mental image, I saw it as only fitting that I should come here and make sure that you suffered through it as well.

  6. I’m a Varin fan but you’re a lunatic if you think he never uses that front bumper. And if the bumper is clean, check out those nerf bars because he uses those just as much. Bobby is a grown man, he doesn’t need you to come save him from Mimi Lazarro.

  8. I'd like to hear any one of you complainers pick up the microphone and try to do play by play or interviews. Even if you got lucky and happened to be decent at one of the two, it's highly unlikely that you would be good at both. I can't think of anybody who is great at both. Find me at Oswego this fall oh, and I will gladly hand over the microphone to allow you to try doing a couple of interviews. I think almost anyone could interview a driver they liked or knew a lot about, but you interview multiple drivers and not sound repetitive is tough as hell. As for play-by-play, good luck.

  9. Bingo. If my watching the same jalapeño kettle chip commercial 14 times in a row during downtime offsets costs enough to keep my subscription $150 a year, I’m all for it. I have other things to pay attention to to keep me busy while it happens

  10. Was stuck on my way back and watched it on stream. Two things. First very thankful Adam was able to walk away . That’s a great at testament to the safe race car Troyer built and the team putting the car together with detail. Steve has been around racing for a long time and knows the importance of the seat being in the right way, the belts being mounted properly. I’m sure Adam was sore this morning. Second want to commend Paul Cole for stepping up and giving free streaming!! The video was excellent and the sound was above average. I sure hope race fans that watch and enjoy the stream with suppo

  13. I think Mimi should use the word butthurt when asking Bobby about this. . . Mimi interviewing Bobby to see how he feels about her comment, 'It looks like I caused quite the stir with my comment, are you as butthurt as the bvdv guy on the DTD forum? Tell us how my comment made you feel.'

  15. I love that a track bumps the purse for a class like the Pro-Stocks and instead promoting the increase as being a good thing for the lower class, the entire thread has been nothing but complaints. And this is coming from a "Fonda" guy. We're supposed to hate the Valley. It speaks volumes to the overall negativity of this forum lately.

  17. I don't know whether I should be proud or ashamed that I knew every car in that video. Proud because I've been a fan that long or ashamed that racing is all I know. Never did or wanted to do anything else. Life experiences away from racing are extremely limited. Sometimes I wonder where life would have taken me had I never gone to the stock car races and fell in love with them for the rest of my life. There was a time when I was a kid that I wanted to be a cop. After I went to the races, I didn't care about that any more.

  18. When I'm on FLO I'm bouncing all over the place, there are so many choices on Friday & Saturdays. If the ads bother you, just jump to another track when a commercial comes on. Heck, sometimes, I'm jumping off races when they throw the caution flag. The great think about watching races from around the country is the realization that dirt tracks don't have to turn into ice rinks during the night.

  19. I'd take a kick in the junk if I could get to cross the border, do some quick shopping in Watertown, have a beer & steak at Longhorn Steakhouse, watch racing Brewerton Friday and head to Fulton Saturday. I'll count my blessing but I sure to miss live racing and will never again complain about dusty track conditions, lack of leg space on the bleachers, unlucky 50/50 girls, and farting co-pilots who make the trip with me. Enjoy the sunshine, looks like a beauty weekend.

  21. Add in Albany-Saratoga on Fridays and that's a lot of competition for cars on a Friday night with not a whole lot of mileage between them all. I hope it works out for every track and car counts are good.

  22. An awful lot of crying here, but you guys would bitch when the price went to $250/yr if they removed the ads. They run a couple during crash cleanup or during intermission. Who cares? Do you actually on your couch and watch a water truck or packers? Hell, I don’t even do that when I’m at the track.

  25. Another funny story about how loud that exhaust could be. I was in Florida heading north on A1A at the Route 40 intersection. I am in the far left lane to head to Volusia and in the 2nd left lane was this Dodge Neon with the windows down. An older white woman was driving and her 3 passengers were all younger black guys and were playing that deep bass rap music. Nasty shit was rattling shit in my truck. Now remember - I dumped the exhaust tips out at 45° angles to be different. When the light turned green, I let the Neon get just a slight jump on me so that I could see where it was. Then I nai

  27. I think 80k is saying that the Big Block Modifieds are like the Rolling Stones. So something like you go to a local dirt race and the show consists of Big Block Modifieds (Rolling Stones), the Sportsman (Dokken), Pro Stocks (Warrant), and the 4 cylinder enduro (Nickleback). I think 80k is saying: "If you start with Rolling Stones....no one is going to stay for Nickleback." And what you are saying is: "Would I sit through Nickleback to watch Rolling Stones or just call it a night?" ....and the answer is: Nickleback Sucks...unless your Canadian....then they are just OK (Canad

  28. Generally, racers are idiots. They bitch, whine and complain about costs, then open their wallets and burn stacks of $100 bills on the newest stuff. Businesses, homes, wives, everything is for sale to pay to play the game. All that said, I agree Johnny. We're going to get to see some seriously good fields in the next few months for some pretty decent pay days.

  31. Was stuck in Ohio on my way back to New York, had to mount tires at Mid-Ohio for BFGoodrich, so after I got done at track about 7 went back to motel and my girlfriend had land of legends tv on. Was very impressed with the quality of video. But what I was even happier was my girlfriend made that comment first!! And what I mean by that is she’s really only been around racing the last 7 years and hasn’t been a die hard fan her whole life. Her nephew runs hobby stock and went maybe a few times before we got together. Most of the time I go the races and she stays home and watches tv with our dog.

  35. Talk about a busy weekend coming up. We've got 11 broadcasts on DTD Tv spread across two days: I believe this sets a record for our busiest weekend to date. Let's hope mother nature cooperates and we get to see some racing!

  36. I gotta give Brian Walker aka Walkapedia (WoO PR coordinator) A LOT of credit for really steering into the Pennsylvania Posse/World of Outlaws rivalry with the sprint cars. He's been doing a tremendous job hyping up/trolling the Posse all week. It's a great example of how with effective/strategic communication on social media, you can really leverage interest and engagement and eyeballs on your product. The crowd last night in Lincoln WAS HUGE and there were boos to the Outlaws, chants of Posse, Posse, people going nuts with Brent Marks moving through the field etc. If anyone e

  41. I understand your pricing model, but it would be nice if it was more like Floracing.. You can check out multiple tracks each night. A few weeks ago I watched some Heat Races and the Modified Features from Bridgeport and Fonda and 410 Features from Port Royal and Lincoln.

  42. My only problem is why they have to have the sound 3 times louder than what you got it set to watch the race. It about blows my speaker up. My wife come and gives me hell and tells me to turn it down. For that reason i will not buy anymore from Rock City Auto.

  46. I knew this was how this was going to turn out. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, except when their opinion doesn't match someone else's. BV/DV fan... You can't say you have nothing more at stake other than being just a fan, and then take exception to wording someone used about your favorite drivers. It gives the impression that you are butt hurt. I spoke with Mimi about it briefly last night. She said she would contact Bobby about it to see how he felt. If he felt there was an apology in order, she would offer one. Neither one of us thought he would have been as offended by it

  48. I’m convinced that fans care more about costs than the racers themselves. I have thought about cheaper alternatives but at the end of the day I have no skin in the game. I love the sound, smell and experience associated with the BB class and if that’s around another 30 years with full fields and good racing than I’m thrilled. If it evolves, as things often do, than I’ll see what’s what and make my decision as we cross that bridge. For now it’s only worth worrying about what’s immediately in front of us and if the shows this spring are any sort of barometer it looks like we will be watching som
