  1. I'm sure that many of us have been to a number of asphalt tracks and thought, "Can you imagine this place if they covered it with dirt?" There are still a lot of good asphalt tracks, but they would be better if they just covered them. Lol. Let's get a wish list going. Any current or closed asphalt track. I will get the ball rolling on one. The mods and anything that raced on the Syracuse mile have yet to race on anything close to its size. How would Richmond be at 3/4 mi? Just a topic to have fun with.
  2. Thank you so much for your reply. This helps me out for sure.
  3. Hoping someone can help me with a suggestion. Long trip to make to be turned away. I don't want to be stuck in the pits. For Malta I'm a turn four guy. Thanks!
  4. On a side note. I'm two hours north of Malta. I wish they would allow people to purchase their tickets prior to the event. I would gladly pay $15 rather than $12 to insure that I get in and my trip was not a waste.
  5. What happen to the needing a negative test within 24 hours or proof of vaccination?
  6. Heading to Malta Friday. I'm sure it will be typical great car counts. How many less modifieds with Bristol SDS?
  7. With fans in the stands at the NY Rangers game, and fan allowed at the Bills playoff game, when will racing be given the green light on fans? What ridiculous % capacity will they say for an outdoor facility. Rangers game was 10%. Florida panthers 25%, which is interesting being that Florida dirt tracks packed. SC dirt tracks packed. Lincoln P A looked pretty packed too. With Many tracks set to open in mud April, and many others early may, I would hope The state makes a decision.
  8. Nothing but respect . Saw him involved in a wreck Fulton ESS during summer speed week. Next day pull early into Utica Rome. Only person in parking lot? DV working on the tore up sprint car. Not a big list of drivers who can wield a modified and a sprint car at such a high level.
  9. Congratulations to JaMike Sowle on getting the Palmer ride. Some will think I'm crazy but one of the greatest performances I saw one night at Malta was when JaMike hit all the marks perfectly and held off the GOAT Mr. Hearn, to get the win.
  10. I will probably get a lot of shit for this, but could Bremerton be turned into a bigger track size wise and capacity, and all the CNYRP land been used for camping and other stuff? I love Bremerton but could it be the home of SDW, with expansion? I'm not a logistics guy. Thanks for not ripping on me too hard. Lol
  11. Thinking about heading to DB Saturday. First time this year. Wondering what the restrictions are and suggestions on getting a ticket, how they seat you, etc... Thanks.
  12. So I was able to check out the Airborne race last Saturday. My counts might be off a bit; 40 sportsman mods, 9 pro stocks, 17 Renegades(Tigers), 11 4 cy. The racing was excellent. Excellent Top 3 battle in sportsman minds with Jack Speshock taking checkers followed by Travis Bruno, and Nick Haywood. Started at 7. Done by 945. Track was in great shape. They spread people out from pit stands, and all along the fence that goes from turn 2 to turn 1. No spectators in grandstands. Decent view, but obviously not as good as grandstands. Robbie Knowles, Mike Mike perrote, and all involved did a great
  13. Malta, no spectators next week. Must be listed as a crew member. I had a feeling it it would be my swan song with what happened with Fonda. Consider myself fortunate to have seen any racing this season. Thank you Lyle and all the Malta staff!
  14. Hendry County Motorsports Park in Florida has ran the last 2 Saturday nights. Not sure about crowd size.
  15. You hit the nail on the head. The cost of bringing the SDS series to a track makes it more difficult on the return. I would say that's the case with Airborne and Mohawk. The $ saved by not having them can be used to hold special $ nights where you might attract invaders from other tracks bc of rainouts that day or from previous nights. Airborne got a lot of sportsman and more 358s when Mohawk had a terrible run of rainouts. Question. Is there a track sharing concept out there? Could for instance Mohawk and Airborne share a schedule? Don't run both nights Friday and Saturday. Stagger schedul
  16. "Bruno was released but under several strict conditions, including that he not possess any firearms, that he have no communication with the teens who trespassed on his property and that he observe a 24-hour curfew with few exceptions." 🤔
  17. Gary is easily one of the nicest guys I have ever met. I had the privilege back about 5 years ago at the world finals NC. To carry the NY flag with Gary. I chatted with him The whole time. I called him a legend. He just chuckled. Great guy.
  18. Anyone but Grafton. What a dork. He quietly in interview talks about racing his teammates 99 and 98 how he didn't want to wreck them all. At that point in race he had secured homestead, and teammates were running hard. I guess it didnt bother me that he wanted a pass by, it bothered me when he said he had something for the 52. You didn't have anything for the 52, you couldn't even get by your own teammates!! Even if I wasn't a 52 fan, Crafton would still rub me the wrong way.
  19. I think it's been discussed that sprintcars will not work at Oswego without catch fences. Would be cool but not safe.
  20. Great Minds think alike. Weedsport doesn't run every week so gives fans a chance to see a track they haven't been to or seldom. Moving schedule back takes away a satellite race. What track would not run? It's exciting to think about what a Thursday Friday Saturday night shows would be like. Great idea about 5 530 start. We can only hope it might be looked at.
  21. I was only at Sunday's race but was wondering if Rocky Warner had a car at Oswego? Sorry if this is a dumb question. I figured with the success this year he would be there, maybe he was and I just missed it.
  22. You are correct about the spectators in pits. I was one of them, although I was not 😵. I felt bad for the long haired security guy who looked like he might have had a stint in the WWF as a heel Lol. He was doing his best to direct traffic and keep people from getting ran over, but many people either had there heads up their asses or their heads in their phones.
