I hope this is not so. We need Kevin. There are very few new teams coming into the sport, and none the caliber of Kevin. You may not realize it, but Kevin brings flavor to the sport. With out him the mods are bland at best. Hang in there Kevin.

LATEST NEWS AUGUST 24, 2012 The following statement is to inform my loyal and concerned family, friends, fans, sponsors, and fellow racers regarding the remainder of my race season and my racing career. As of August 4, 2012, I received the second response letter from World Racing Group (WRG)-Appeals Commission, denying once again the second of two attempts to appeal the alleged suspension and fines as stated; 1) suspension for the remainder of 2012 season, 2) $1500 in fines and 3) probation throughout the 2013 race season. World Racing Group/DIRTCar still does not permit me to race at Lernerville Speedway or any World Racing Group/DIRTCar sanctioned tracks or events until December 31, 2012. In both appeals, I simply asked the World Racing Group-Appeals Commission to stay the penalties and fines, which would enable us to continue racing, earn points and winning until the board has the chance to hear our appeal. Bol-Tech Motorsports, Inc., my team and I surmise that Lernerville Speedway and World Racing Group/ DIRTcar have acted hastily and without any regard for due process. At this time, our race team is considering all available options. Look for further updates in the weeks to come. Thank you for your support and your concerns. Bol-Tech Motorsports, Inc. Kevin Bolland

Do you really have to ask why? Should have been dq'd for going to another driver's car. Point standings might look a little different.

I'm sure the teams he has cost money with his antics over the years would use another term for " flavor", but to each his own.
I wish the ass hat would just dry up and blow away. But, he's not selling out. He's far too arrogant for that, and his driving style would not endear him with what is a much deeper SLM field around here.

First Joe Pa and his wins....Now Lance Armstrong and his wins/medals......I say strip Kevin Bolland of all his Dirtcar wins!!!!!!

JoePa was a salaried employee -- a highly-paid professional -- involved in a cover-up of a heinous crime. JoePa didn't spend a dime putting on entertainment for the football fans at Beaver Stadium. He got paid regardless of what happened during the game. I doubt that he even had to pay for his own football cleats or jacket to wear during the games. Do you even think he had to pull out a buck to pay for his own hot dog while at Beaver Stadium? I seriously doubt it.
You can't compare that to a racer, who is essentially an independent contractor spending their own money on race cars and equipment to put on a show that race fans can enjoy. JoePa risked nothing when he walked through the gates before a football game. JoePa never walked out of the gates at the end of the day with less money than he walked in with. A racer risks everything -- sometimes their life savings, and sometimes their own life.
I was there that night. It was some intense racing, and it was a good show for the fans. I disagree with Lernerville's position on this. I disagree with any track that has little respect for the entertainment that brings fans into the stands.

Once again, watch the video and stop being so blind about this a-hole. No attempt at all to avoid spinning him out. There are such things as brakes and a steering wheel which maybe in this case he has lost some of his coordination or reaction time and can't use them like a real driver should. Get over it. He is an arrogant a-hole with no respect for anyone he races against.

Easy now, don't go clouding this argument with facts.
As for whoever said Swartzlander got into people last week, I would sure love to know who and where that happened. I watched the entire feature and never saw any of the guys up front make an significant contact. I'm sure he was driving dirty tonight when he won again right?
Just get over it...Bolland is a clown, always has been. Has no respect for any of his competitors, period. He has had this coming for quite some time.
Posted 24 August 2012 - 11:58 PM
That is correct. And it isn't just Brian Swartzlander that has had problems with him. Ask around the pits. You won't have to walk too far.
Posted 25 August 2012 - 12:44 AM
I didn't say that Bolland is a cherub, but Swartzlander isn't without fault either. Just remember when there is no competition at Lernerville, who are you going to race against? Racing is about competition. When the competition is gone, the car counts will continue to diminish and the fans won't bother to watch. I have no skinny in this game. If Mods were dropped from the local tracks, it wouldn't bother me one bit. I get enough Mod action several times per year when at Utica-Rome when I'm in NY. They at least have some competitive racing.

Bolland was suspended for using radios, not for spinning Swartzlander. Only one Bolland has to blame here is himself. Makes me sick that people want to turn the focus to the 83 team when it has nothing to do with them.
Posted 25 August 2012 - 06:59 AM
I said it before I will say it again. Like him or hate him we need him. Havent been back to lernerville since he was suspended. Wanna no why. Swartslammer show from here on out with an occasional dabble of someone else but certainly not enough to make it interesting. Dubois is racing friday nights next year. At first I was disapointed in missing lerneville, now couldnt give two shits whether I ever go back. The truth, I have never been what you might call a fan of anyone. I know you all dis Bolland so I ride with it. I do like to get you guys riled up though. But the luster is gone, the rivalry that drives racing is gone. The reason we go to the track, the love hate relationship gone. How many cars did earnhardt destroy in his years racing. He is an icon now. We need the bad guy, and you idiots just dont realize it yet. So good luck next year, enjoy the slammer show at the ville every week. Kevin, if you reading these posts, (which I am pretty sure he is smart enough not too) we need you. The sport in western pa needs you. We need the rivalry back. Cuz right now, it just driving in circles.
