with all the rain

our car racing has had very little activity but the horses go at it in all climates

 

the kentucky derby ran their annual race in the rain and had a "ruff driving" call get the 1st horse DQ'd 

 

how many "cry babies" would there be if the daytona 500 winner was DQ'd for blocking???

 

just conversation

 

Brad

I dont know whats worse this or your Crate Late posts.

On a side note: I will say horse racing and crate late racing are very similar because they are both extremely boring. Thank you for bringing this to light.

any dirt track that doesn't allow a little rubbing or a slidejob isn't one worth worrying about.. :)

the owner of the DQ'd horse was on the today show this morning

he admitted that his horse stepped out of the lane and that the RULE prohibits that

the interviewer asked him "if the rule says you cannot step out of the lane and you do-- shouldn't you be DQ'd"

rules are rules

we can all have opinions but the rules are the rules

we all agree with the rules until they work against us

I applaud the tech people for making the call ---

don't know why sub is set so high on a pedestal? you don't even drive the 99 mod anymore. your just a bleacher creature like many on here. you get that 99 fired up, with a brand new hibbard 604, we might take  you more seriously..........

Sounds like youre discriminating against bleacher creatures Scott. Those people keep that track going that your car races at. Thats not very nice.

I agree. But now Im an advocate for the Racing Fans Rights and Track Photographer Appreciation Coalition, the RFRTPAC if you may. Ive changed my ways.

Ya know, there are things you can see from up higher that you can't see from the containment seat. 


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.
