#446228 Jonny Huck interview

Posted by jo73 on 11 January 2020 - 04:47 PM

Huck may run his mouth at times but I will say this. A lot of times he said what others wouldn't say but yet agreed with what he was saying. As for his driving, he gets in that car maybe 3 times a year if that, and that pierce or the xr-1 has top parts on it. I doubt very much if he's putting new tires on and what is on there are probably hard as a rock. The guys that get into with him just aren't very smart and he takes, and gets, pleasure out of it. Solution is simple if you think about it. :)

Well my question is will they return ? 2 speedway's tried the dark side and it cost racers money. Many said screw it and will run penn/ohio. Car counts at both tracks weakened and guys seemed happy following the tour. Sure will give you guys that bought those boat anchors a huge weight advantage so that we can make it look like we knew what we were doing from the beginning.

It was never good for the class from day one and now it may only weaken the class even more. The damage may already be irreversible for both tracks.

Stick with the crate lates, it's a good show and it's what you do well, slm racing due to the high costs and little return is dead.

Trying to take over every class is nothing more than greed.

#446114 FASTRAK LM shock rules

Posted by jo73 on 21 December 2019 - 05:54 AM

He couldn't make them mandatory because you still have guys that are bolting shocks on that cost 10 times the price of a spec shock. I like that the guy running the spec beats the guy with a wall full of 1500.00 shocks.

#445989 WoO at Lernerville

Posted by jo73 on 26 November 2019 - 05:49 PM

Well I see lernerville only has 1 show this year and that's the Don Martin memorial. Yes it's still early, but since the sale to the Tomson's the WRG seems to be less involved. Changes abound.

#445988 What classes at DogHollow

Posted by jo73 on 26 November 2019 - 05:00 PM

If it's promoted by the same people and if there was truth in the rumor about guys not getting paid then why in the hell would anyone race there ?

Don't say everyone eventually got paid either. It should have never happened in the first place.

Get a ticket for ds2. If he hasn't been there ? I'm sure he would enjoy it and get your employee there.

First 200 lbs lighter plus 2 inches of spoiler added for a crate is a big deal. 100 lbs I could see. Time will tell but I think something doesn't sound fair with this deal. Let's not forget sportsman run last on that track and that will always have a large impact as to which set of rules will have the advantage.

#445775 Lernerville points fund

Posted by jo73 on 27 October 2019 - 04:33 PM

Why do we have to talk about politics on a racing forum period ? My political opinions are mine and they are personal. If you don't respect the man then respect the position. If you disagree with who got elected, then maybe you need to run for office. Most political rants are just that and nobody cares to hear it.

#445715 Lernerville points fund

Glad someone landed this gentleman. Let's all hope they use it wisely. I hope, in my personal view, some sprint teams get docked a week or 2 of points. Before anyone gets all blown out of shape. They could have sat down with ownership and all parties could have worked to come up with options instead of penalizing the customers,

With the cost of running a sportsman type car, if you don't have a fab'd chassis your not going to do well, and with the purses today I can only see fields getting smaller and penn Ohio getting stronger. Lernerville I thought would have been smart and noticed what Vince has done with the Laboon race and what sharon did for the penn ohio shows they had. Wrong, keep kissing her lernerville, your far from the facility you wonce were.

#445518 Clinton Co. Nittany 50 Cancelled!

Jon goes out there very few times a year. His equipment, because he works his ass off, could race with anyone. I think if he could put a year of weekly racing under his but you would see a guy running up front. Some can put the mouth on him in type but wouldn't have the nutz to say to his face.

#445132 Pittsburgher 100

Posted by jo73 on 13 September 2019 - 12:48 PM

Hey Ds2. When them there pittsburgh steelers went to, and won, in Detroit. 2 tickets 4000.00 and they were not the greatest seats. It was all about the moment.

Always seemed to have fan support. Needs clay, lot of rocks unfortunately. Comes down to, is there enough racers to go around.

I feel in today's struggles a track that ran specials only could survive. Decent purse and they will come.

#443974 RUSH Sportsman Mod Tour Expo 7/11/19 preview

Posted by jo73 on 09 July 2019 - 06:51 PM

Well after lernerville having the crate show. In my opinion it happened because they want to show fans that were there for the Firecracker to notice them. Nothing more. You guys just flat out refuse to admit that without hanging on to the coattails of a big event. They can't and won't survive. You needs fans in the stands. Tell me where as a stand alone show there putting butts in the seats ? Crate lates are good for the racer, I've said so from the beginning. I've also said I don't like the takeover of all racing.

Hey chrome :) :) :) :) :)
