Can we all just cut the track some slack here...... It's the first year for this group and it's not like the weather has let them get many nights in so that they can try to see where they need to work on things .
Yes, it was a long night. They are not using transponders right now, so that is some of the line up problems. Personally, I Hope that changes for next year... Should speed things up.
It was my first time there and hope to make it a couple more times to show my support to a group that is putting an effort into reviving the place for years to come. Thanks to Dennis and the staff for all the work they have and will put in. Appreciate what they have done so far.....
He's right a triple disc ($730) Throw out bearing ($100) stock Saginaw 3 speed ($150) is more expensive than a used $800 Bert. But it's the principle. the name "Strictly Stock" should mean stock parts or stock replacement. A Bert is not a triple disc isn't either. I'm against Berts in a Street Stock even. it's thinking like this that is killing the sport. that class should be running stock flywheels.
First off.... Why in the hell is there ANY 'strictly stock' running a triple disk?
By rights , in my opinion , they shouldn't even by running a manual tranny....Automatics only...
Ppms just pulled 51 cars allowing open motors to compete against crates with crates running right there with the open stuff. The only reason to mandate crates is to line the pockets of ole grimy gash herself. It's pathetic that tracks just bend over for anyone who throws out a couple bucks instead of asking racers what they want
This ,to me, is proof that "open motors" and the crate motors can coexist and be competitive with each other.
NeSmith is doing it with a Street Stock series.... 602's and limited "do it yourself" motor options
Going straight 604 or 602 crate motors is just a backroom kick back....IMO
I'm thinking that much... Was wondering how long Vicki and Mike where going to wait to do this. neSmith has had a series for stocks for a coule years. Shawn did a great job with Penn-Ohio last year and showed there was a place for a series like this... Now I'm afraid they are going is f@&$ him the same they did Stan
