What was it in 2015?


Fan Jim, there wasn't a crate option in 2015.

Really? Then what was Corey driving, and why did Bob Lipinski complain about the extra weight he had to have? It's an honest question. I genuinely think that crates could run and got a weight break before they were mandated. 


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.

Not a fan of yours Joe, and I hope that with a bigger motor again you won't just go back to wrecking the guys who are better than you. I say it in the stands, so I should have the integrity to say it in conversation with you, albeit, fairly anonymous conversation, even though there is enough info on this forum to figure out who I am.

Fan Jim, If guys had a crate engine in there car in 2015 it was there option. You asked what it was in 2015, I answered. The back gate losses have been obvious and someone in management has finally figured that out. Don't tell me it was for the racer, horseshit, it was because they made there sales pitch saying crates will be everywhere. Your car counts will increase you watch and see. Well they finally did see the light, only thing they need to hope for is it better not be to little to late.

...and the front gate. The Thomsons were getting pushback, and some of it from people they listen to. 

 

Yes, it was optional in 2015, but I'm pretty sure there was a weight break for the crates. I was just wondering how the new rules compare to the last ones. I could be wrong. It wouldn't be the first time.

It would be funny if they didn't even invite her to the meeting.

Support the late models. They put on a good show. I'd like to see some of the mod guys go 358 and support tri city and mercer could include them. Be a nice 2 day option for a 358 mod.

Other then lost revenue my guess is she couldn't care less.  Probably "something like I tried but it didn't work out" not blaming anyone or herself.

 

I also think she would offer honest reasons for it not working out including herself if she thought it so,  But it hasn't completely not worked out yet and each car because of what I think is still pay to play, still remains a source of income from each car.

I have heard it was more of a dirtcar WRG decision with lernerville management.

I don't know what their stake would be in this, but then I don't know how they still get to dictate the weekly latemodel rules at a track they no longer own, either.

They don't, we opened up the Hoosier tire rule, no longer on strictly on LMs.

PR Big E. SMART MOVE. I hope the Tomson's have seen the light.

There's been a purse increase, excellent. There's also been a change in the tire rule, really smart move. The big question I have is will the sportsman guys return or did some move on to crate late model ? (Reference to little to late)
Guess will just have to sit back and wait on that one.

The Tomson's, in my eyes they have proven they will make change even if they have felt it was a move they made previously that has not turned out well.

JOB WELL DONE.

With Thunder Mountain dropping the Pro Stocks and Lernerville opening up the engine rules, I will be making the tow to the 'ville a few times in 2020.  I have always wanted to run there.  Looking forward to the opportunity.
