  1. And if they really like Brewerton and want it to eventually switch to 358s…..they are hurting the cause.
  2. If your not racing to run up front what the hell are you doing it for. Yes, 80% of the guys are not winning. 80% of the races are won by a few drivers at every track, but what’s the point if your not atleast attempting to give yourself the opportunity to run well. There’s not 1 person who would agree with 305 guys running weekly against 360s or 410s no matter what bonus they put up….if your competing for the chance to run well it’s ludicrous. If your one of the 358 guys that want Brewerton to switch to 358s(basically all of them), then constantly going to fill the field only furthers that from
  3. I have no issue at all….whatever guys decide doesn’t matter to me…..my point is as a racer you would think your racing for good finishes and the opportunity to win. Not to make a 300 dollar bonus. A 358 has virtually no chance at running up front at Brewerton. Maybe once or twice a year they will crack off a top 5. If 300 bucks is your deciding factor as to where and how you race…..your in the wrong sport to begin with. I do not believe Brewerton pays as good at UR as well. This bonus is only put in place to entice 358 guys to fill a big block field because you cannot do so with big blocks al
  4. Yes there is a bonus…..it’s a perk to get them to fill the field. I feel you race to win…or compete for wins….you don’t race to finish 10th and hope you made an extra 300 bucks.
  5. The Big block car counts do continue to fall….you just have 358 guys filling up the field. If the small block guys were smart….they would stay home and it wouldn’t take long for 12-15 car fields of big blocks to turn into another 358 track. I laugh when I hear 358 guys complain they wish Brewerton was a small block track……then they go beat their equipment up hoping to finish 8-12th with a 358 on fridays against Big Blocks. Your not going to prove the 358s are a better option if you continue to go be field fillers at big block shows.
  6. I don’t care if your racing on the mile or in your living room….if anybody says they can’t tell the difference between a big block and a sportsman featuring an engine out of a 91 z-71……they belong at a horse race.
  7. Well you can’t weigh 2200 lbs first of all, and rarely are spec head 358s going to be as fast or faster than a big block. Dirtcar is trying to preserve a class based primarily around 20 guys(really about 4-6). The cost of big block racing has been driven up so high that now there’s apparently some form of sorrow for the people who spent what you need to spend to run competitively. Eventually the class will succumb to 358s. The series won’t survive if weekly racing for that class is gone, based off of car counts between the 2 classes, it’s apparent one is growing while the other struggles to ma
  8. It’s all about the rising costs to field cars, along with the rising costs of entry into the races themselves….Mix that with the rising cost to live, the stagnant purses….and the less and less amount of modified teams in general…..swirl all these together and the chances of strong fields every night everywhere is just a fantasy
  9. Sunday racing in an area full of Friday and Saturday night tracks plays a huge role as well. Most guys don’t even want to race 3 straight days nowadays. Lots of reasons a standard sunday mod show in cny will not be a huge attraction .
  10. The race up front was pretty good, max Matt and jimmy with max winning. There were multiple grooves and the racing was as good as your normally gunna get at a sds style event. Will weedsport ever be Brewerton or Bridgeport....no but it’s not always horrible either.
  11. I believe Beardsley just bought a car from hearn....put the 18 on it and never changed the rest of the lettering. I could be wrong.
  12. Sunday racing for a regular purse. Nothing special about the event. 15- 20 cars is the norm if your not paying a large purse for big blocks. Brewerton gets around 16 big blocks along with some small blocks, Canandaigua gets 17-20 cars weekly. That’s where “weekly” big block racing is in CNY. It survives in the area because a handful of small blocks keep it on life support.
  13. It was nothing Bachetti wouldn’t do tomorrow if given the chance. Just hard racing.
  14. Based on the amount of drivers who praise the surface I’d bet that’s where he gets his input from. Every big block series race usually has a great crowd, so I’m not sure that everyone agrees. I’m not a huge fan of the racing there, but there’s lots of places that fall into that category.
  15. Nobody is quite sure what the truth is when it comes to Fooci, he goes in circles faster than Kyle Larson. But he certainly has shit on his plate that he denied and it’s gotten out. There’s more to his China connection than you want to let on. But I’m proud of you for finally admitting the country is full of lazy bastards that do not want to go to work. Good luck teaching them anything but I won’t disagree with trying. You call it “tough love” I call it let them starve if they don’t work.....it’s the same thing, yours just sounds nicer.
  16. All of those actions that NY, Michigan and California put in place really helped them out didn’t it?
  17. If your fearless leader Fooci didn’t fund creating covid with China all of it could have been avoided in the first place. There was a reason Fooci is on video in 2017 claiming that there was “no doubt” there would be another epidemic during Trumps time in office. Anyone supporting them should not be throwing “cover up” around in regards to anyone else.
  18. What percentage of jobs lost during the pandemic were waitress/waiter/bartender/shelf stocking lower wage jobs?
  19. Well I guess I was one of the few that didn’t inherit what I have. My bad. Everyone else that has a good life didn’t work for it. Im not part of the top 1% hell I’m probably not part of the top 5-10% of earners in this country I don’t know where the numbers say I fall. I live well. I have lots of friends/acquaintances that own/started business. Repair shops,car dealerships, trucking companies, bars, restaurants, construction companies, tattoo shops, salvage yards, septic service, generator sales etc. None are in the top 1%. All share my views on how to do well today. As far as winning by a tou
  20. I’ve told you numerous times the corruption needs to be addressed at both ends of the spectrum. But you seem to find it completely acceptable to “bail out” people for their entire life. I do not agree with constantly sending a check to someone who needs to be narcaned back to life once a month and can’t work because he’s 38, never had a job but has a bad back.
