They must have bought it!!!   Sun Oil Co. was an American company founded in Philly in 1890 and began selling gasoline in 1920!!!

Protests to Re-open Racetracks in Pa at Harrisburg with thousands
Anyone notice that this type of protest is shaded as being right wing radicals?? Or reported on the radio as “ some protest “ and the reason not even mentioned ? Or maybe some didn’t even hear about the protests?I actually heard that on the radio and said to myself ... so why would they say some protest and not even mention the motive ... That's Fake News ! was the only assumption and proven accurate!
So what was sold as to flatten the curve and not overwhelm hospitals has now become something quite different..

Big middle finger to all of these "rules"!! I'm NOT wearing a mask when it's 90 degrees outside! If your scared, stay home. It's THAT simple folks.... You are NOT gonna stop this virus from running it's course. ONLY drag it out..

What's next??? We all gonna get a participation trophy for showing up? Will the government be able to "track" us to calculate attendance? Painted spots where we can sit and not sit? 6' lines in the dirt at the hot-dog stand? Will there be a nationwide lock-down for hay fever/ allergies?

Covid Covid Covid !. Dont go to Church , Dont go to school , Burning down buildings and police cars is accepted! If you dont vote to end Racing ! We will " burn down the whole system" !

Racing season is about over and maybe over for ever ? Sound crazy ? How about a President who cant count his fingers and has become a multi millionaire from influence peddling deals with China ( 1.3 billion cash from the bank of China) , Russia ( 3.5 million from the wife of Moscow Mayor), Ukraine ( 3 million deposit and 80,000 per month for kid to sit on a board of directors and never show up to work a day )   .

While Racers across Pennsylvania attended many races this season just like they always do because of free people and Gutsy Promoters  doing what they do . Many millions of people have been scared into thinking their gonna die if they don't surrender their freedom to " Experts" at changing their mind and policies!

The vote to end racing is hours away .

The left promises to :

raise your taxes allot !

End Fracking and " move away from fossil fuels and Eliminate it "

" pack the court " ( that means adding enough Liberal judges to supreme court to overrule any Constitutional judges )

And most certainly bring back the Epa ban on Race cars !

Many more Radical policies.

Who will end racing ?

in my district its for national office:

Connor Lamb in Congress and  the  Joe Biden ticket for President ( but who will be President is a secret ! ) and the Green new deal!

Its no joke ! its really here ! All the fools who still subscribe to the " don't talk politics and Religion doctrine have steered us to the cliff!

will we jump ?

30% of people attending trump rallies had never voted before !I'm sure they never believed their vote mattered ... well it did ! Connor Lamb Pelosi is living proof!And  he won by 500 votes ! There are 10s of thousands of people signed up to this Forum .

And Thank you to this Racing Forum that does not steer certain Content like Fakebook and Twitter and others!

The racing community can make a big statement to preserve America ... or watch it voted OUT and  burn to the ground  !

A vote for Trump ( and straight down the ticket) will put  America first ! If you think these politics dont affect your racing .. then your Jane Fonda !

Though I usually don't understand your ranting on here:

 

well said   DavyLee2

 

I was brought up and taught the worst Democrat is better then the best Republican.

 

Both have changed, I'm still a shot and a beer Democrat voting independent and thru deeds not rhetoric Trump has been the best old time 50's Democrat President we've ever had.

Look up John McCain's service on the USS Forrestal. Everything he did after that will make perfect sense then.

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 thread is clearly marked and by a poster known for politicizing everything. If it has no interest to you, why even open the thread? It seems like some people are trying to shut down the ability to have a discussion because they don't like the topic. Why not just pass over it? The board is not being bombed with political threads.

Some say politics won't change racing and some don't.

 

The politics are most likely to change and we will see if there's a change coming for racing because of it.

 

Like all in life ya just hav ta deal with it
