Great question, Vince!
Regardless of the outcome, I hope you get the continued support from all the local stock car teams, Greg and Chris included. Youre hard work should always be rewarded with a great event!

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat. "The Man In The Arena", Theodore Roosevelt, April 23, 1910

Is it not true that Greg is taking business away from Chris? Setup help, shock packages, fab work, etc? They both do great work and there's nothing wrong with competitive business. The consumer has the right to choose their vendor based on their own methodology. Chris and Greg may very well respect each other, but if I were Chris, I wouldn't be real happy about the foregone work.
My point being, it would be interesting to see business competitors compete on the racetrack and observe resulting business affects.

Then why doesn't Alan do just that? Heard there's a 10 grand race there this year, or something like that. Sounds like easy money for a guy with said skill set. Oh, and the ELM is the highest paying stock car race in history so while he's at it he should go there and scoop up that 4K payday as well.

Ya thats what it is
I guessed Beach to be a latemodel guy because he was selling all of it on here
So I think I speculated pretty good
As for them fighting each other
There was never talk of that
That was you speculating about that so welcome to speculation network lol

Greg is Banker Beach's nephew and started his career in go-karts and then to the Stocks at Lernerville where he won his share and was in the top five in points a number of years long before the crate engine cars came in there. Since then he has did some racing in Late Models, mostly crates, and even had an E-Mod for a short time. He doesn't have any big money behind him, just hard work and a lot of mechanical and driving talent.
GOOD RACING TO ALL!!

Well said Walt. Greg and Chris have been around a long time so they have nothing to prove they already have many times over. When getting your car from either Greg or Chris you can"t go wrong, and they will help you set it up so that alone is a WIN. Just how I see it.
Posted 07 May 2019 - 11:37 AM
two of the best right now, agreed and I'd like to see them compete on the same track for the ELM. That is my entire point!

can any of the #slumfaithful confirm/deny whether the slumerican shitizen will be at the ELM? Would make for even more excitement!

When I spoke to him last week he couldn’t confirm because he didn’t know what would be going on with Alex’s racing schedule.

The slumerican Shitizen?
You yelled at me for spelling so Im sure you spelled that correctly
And thanks Walt again

pretty simple... Greg is one of the best stock car guys in the northeast who sells parts / services. Chris is also one of the best stock car guys in the northeast who ALSO sells parts / services / builds stock cars. I would like to see them race each other. I have a HARD ON for COMPETITIVE RACING! How about you worry about your own stick instead of mine buddy?

bobby whitling of franklin pa is also a car builder. that runs the penn/ohio series its the slider chassis.

I've had more a few conversations with Greg's engine builder/partner when he was running stocks, and I can attest to the money thing. Just because a guy has run a low-budget latemodel, especially a crate late, and then drops back to something that takes less money, doesn't mean he can't drive. It might mean he ran out of money and just wants to race.

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.

The way I see it most racers past and present race for the love of the sport. Winning would nice but if they don"t win for the most part just putting the car on or in the trailer in one piece is a good night. Then you have the friendships you have made while racing that lasts a life time. I have friends from racing for over 40 years. To me that was the best times. It is all a Family affair. Just my OP. Hope they get some racing in this week end.

Alan is one of the best all around drivers ever from this area. He has won the old fall fest at challenger in the late model,e-mod, and led the whole stock feature untill the rear gear broke in the same night. He has won a ton of races at sharon,mercer,hickory and all over the region for that matter. He even ran a big block modified years back and won with it also. One of the nicest guy's you will talk to that does not pat himself on the back. I do not know what car alan is driving,but you can bet he will be in the hunt.
