Congrats to Geislers and Pegher!
You dont really believe that about the 1z just piling on
And remember like I said about Colton Flinner hit everything but the Pace car but look at him now !!
Featured on Lernerville Podcast !
The kid knows how to race and Intimidation is part of racing !
So if some are afraid to race
Then they already are losers before they get on the track
And thats a BIG Loser
Anybody ever heard of Slaming Sammy swindell ?
A wrecking ball with no fenders !

Looks like he will be a contender for the annual "Western PA Rookie of the Year" award this year!!!  Right now the list is pretty short!!   And I can think of several drivers who started their careers at Tri-City and were good for a caution or two every night but are now winning races!!!

 

GOOD RACING!!!!

Yeah, Slammy! Biggest whiner in racing, and he pretty much caused all of the things he cries about. Gotta give him credit, though, he took the "hit everything but the pace truck" so literally that he wrecked a push truck--idiot. Yeah, if you can't out drive 'em, wreck 'em, He's made a lot of money junking cars he couldn't pass.

My dad drove late models in the early 70's at North Hills, Butler, Mercer, Blanket Hill, and occasionally Tri City. We won the last late model track championship at Blanket Hill.

In my often disputed opinion, there's a huge difference between hard racing and dirty racing. Bob and Bobby Wearing used to beat the snot out of each other going for the same real estate, but they didn't take each other out, and no matter how hard they raced anyone they weren't known for wrecking people. Want to name a better driver in this area than Bob Wearing? How many cars did Lou Blaney take out? Geisler? I could go on.

I cited the push truck incident as humor, Don. That one wasn't really his fault, so many others were. In his day he was dirty, and I'm not of fan of dirty driving, especially in sprint cars. Hard racing is different, as far as I am concerned. I know that there have been a lot of drivers who won a bunch of races taking the other guy out, Earnhardt is a nascrap hero for it.

 

Your opinion is usually more respected than mine, and I acknowledge that.

Well he was looking at the scoreboard when he hit the push truck.
If he would of been looking ahead of him and not trying to see his lap time he would of easily missed the truck.

Sammy gave no one an inch. He raced everyone hard, I for one enjoyed watching him greatly. He was so very lucky that night at lernerville. That easily could have been so much worse. The blame on that deal was shared between both parties involved. For many years guys took a look at that scoreboard. Lou Blaney taking out cars ? WOW, you got me on that one. You sure you weren't watching Blackie Watt ? Maybe Walt can help on how he got the name Blackie. I've heard 2 stories back in the day, his on track activities and the second that in his day he had a tendency to get into a few fights. Not sure if either is true.

I read one time it was because he worked in the grease pit in a garage when he was young and looked the part, hence the nickname "Blackie" (always covered in grease & grime)

If at first you don't succeed, then maybe you just suck.

My point was that those guys, the best drivers in the area, weren't known for wrecking people, yeah run you hard, some maybe lean on you a little, but never intentionally wreck you. I didn't like Blackie either, because he was dirty. He took drivers out. Drove one guy down the whole front wall at Lernerville, and never lifted or turned left until the end of the straight away.
