Gordon is an animal and the nice new motor doesn't hurt things. That's how good his setup is and also shows what the right shocks do for a racecar. Was running with semi lates at practice at thunder mountain and was doing more than simply "hanging" with them.

I'm not sure why he pulled in, may have been a flat tire, but I didn't notice.

There's more $$$ behind that operation than one can imagine. So if it isn't legit, and it very well might not be, have fun trying to prove it. Watch the in car from his heat at pittsburgh and you be the judge.

a good poker player doesn't show his hand until the money is won,the 25 is an in your face "we got more than you" from the hauler down to obviously the motor.
it will eventually ruin a good thing unless reigned in..when you have a majority running at 107mph and he runs consistently at 114?
it may fit the rules but is this what the founder of the series envisioned..? we all better pray for slick tracks.

Sorry I'm missing so many driver's names, but the announcer once again failed to tell us who they were.  And worse, Race Monitor and Speedhive are also missing the names.  Unforgiveable, but it is what it is.

Hmmm. I thought that cost limiting rules only cost racers money? And I thought Penn-Ohio has the perfect ruleset? Or was that only until someone with an unlimited budget comes along? Then its time to reign it in? Am I following correctly?

Penn/Ohio is the best stock car series EVER created since latemodels  ! Hooks has made slight rule changes that I disagree with ( 350 motor has to weigh 2900) and some other disagree also . Those rules can be tweaked and the cars can be teched .. there was absolutely NO tech for Sportsmans last Saturday ... and there wasn't even a feature ... AGAIN the trade off for a Crate motor is a weight advantage and even on that Tacky as asphalt track .. there was a 350 motor that ran FASTER laps than some big motors! .. there were no Rush Sportsman that I know of Dave  .. however Carbo and Fausnaught I believe one or two others ran Sarver as their home track for years before the Government motors and they now follow Penn/ohio .. correct me if im wrong please..

There will always be a team with a ton of money more than others ! If you think all " rush " motors are the same .. yah right ! you can have a lightweight Crank for 6 or 900 extra bucks .... More Money ! Completely legal ! Just need more money !

anyways

Pittsburgh IS a slick track 90% of the time .. a 4000 dollar motor can run with whatever is out there on most nights with a really good setup

there are countless examples.

There is absolutely no way to reign in money and if everythings legal what can you do? Resources, knowledge, and seat time are all essential and hard to beat.... and money buys them all. While we're at it, it's not like rush doesn't have it's own Gordon's following the tour... or running weekly tracks. And yes it's much more than his motor. That dude has more money, time, and effort into 1 corner than most have in all 4
