I am confused why people are so contentious with RUSH. If you don't like the rules package, you don't have to compete in RUSH Series. I feel that it's a good thing for those who enjoy the crate program. Everyone has a sandbox to go play in, if not, go build your own.

What kind of 358 are we talking about here? A 358 to run semi lates at Thunder Mountain/Hummigbird/Hidden Valley. A 358 to run BAPS, Hagerstown, Bedford, Port Royal or a 358 to run Mods at Grandview or Big Diamond or in New York. There are a lot of differences. A thunder mtn/HV/Hbird semi late motor shouldn't run you that much. To run Small Block Mods in New York or out east then, yes it probably would. A Late Model Sportsman "358" from central PA is probably somewhere in between depending on what you put in it. 

Aren't the Big Diamond/Grandview SBM's (358's) 9:1 compression? NASCAR rules?

Hey man, it's your dime. Far be it from me, from anyone for that matter, to tell you how, when or what you race.

 

I'm not pointing the finger at you personally, but there are those within the crate community that seem to believe that all area fans need to support RUSH. I don't, now nor will I ever. I don't see the allure of the on track product from a fans' perspective nor do I trust the series' owner. I've been told that makes me a poor racing fan. Whatever. However, to each their own. There are enough choices out there within a reasonable travel distance for me to see what I like, so I'm good. Anyway, from my point of view, that's where some of the push back comes from.

I'm just one of those bleacher creatures who's never been able to afford to get into the sport, so maybe I don't count, but the best racing of the night became the worst racing of the night when it was handed over to Rush. Some drivers spoke of all kinds of unnecessary drama in dealing with the series administration. Reportedly Vicky openly had drivers she worked against, and since she made the rules guess how that worked out. Drivers left the sport over Rush. So dirt racing in Rush's field of influence is worse off for Rush's presence. 

 

Does that explain it better? 

 

Maybe it will work out for Pittsburgh, since the promoters seem to be the types to throw away a dollar to save a nickel. 



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.

I don't really know the back story because I don't pay attention to RUSH. But I don't think Rocky Kugel, one of the more successful drivers that raced the crate Mods, has even raced one the last two years. The Kugels have never taken crap from anyone, so I'd be mildly interested to know what issues, if any, he has with the series.

Rocky's issues of not racing have nothing to do with Vicki or Rush conspiracy theorist. His old lady left him and took his kid and money. That is why he isn't racing.

Exactly you didn't know but of course it's easy to blame the evil empire for the reason he isn't racing right ?

Learn to understand what you read instead of using every opportunity to kiss Miss Vikki's ass. I said IF there was an issue between Rocky and RUSH.
