#450981 Marion Center…948 and 22 Stock Cars

Posted by Foz20J on 19 September 2021 - 02:31 AM

Please keep Chase Lambert and Joey Zambotti in your prayers. They were involved in a bad wreck tonight at Marion Center, just an unfortunate racing accident. Talked to Joey and his shoulder/collarbone/neck were really bothering him which he said hell get evaluated and Chase is at the hospital getting evaluated after being knocked unconscious from the wreck. They were both alert and moving around after the wreck and a lengthy red flag. Joeys car has extensive damage to the front end and Chases car is mostly cosmetic from what we can see but that all can be replaced or repaired. I know Ive had my differences and have said some negative things about the 948 but after witnessing the unselfish behavior, genuine concern and sportsmanship towards Chase from Joey, his dad and his family n crew tonight Im grateful. I know God works in mysterious ways and Im upset at myself that it takes a bad thing happening for me to see how truly great people in this world can be. Again please keep them both in your thoughts n prayers. Hoping to keep everyone updated once they both get checked by medical professionals.

As many know already, I had the honor of receiving the lifetime ban award for speaking my mind. At this point I feel privileged 🤣🤣🤣. Its all good though because I personally support the many other tracks that are appreciative of racers and spectators plus my car still competes there occasionally and is a front runner.

I agree, no need to make them come Thursday just to hot lap and qualify. I would say that is a lernerville decision to get them for the 3 day pit pass. There is nothing wrong with a support division at big shows. This board is full of jackoffs (Jo, dirtmoron and Old man skull) who have a hard on for RUSH and always find a way to complain about it. It has been mentioned over and over that so many people would be out of racing without crate classes but these morons would like that apparently.

i cant speak for others when it comes to the crate classes but I do believe in the beginning it was a very affordable way of getting into racing. With the advancement of technology and the racers wanting to be competitive, those days are over in pretty much any division and any form of racing. New chassis, lightweight parts, new tires every week, high dollar shocks and components, etc. have made racing more expensive and most of the payouts dont balance that out. Racing is a passion for a lot of us. A lot of us come from a racing family and has been passed down from previous generations. It runs through our veins and is very hard to walk away from.

Except beat him. I suspect Chris gave it a little extra off of 4 that last time. 
 
Zambotti, used to be a better driver. I've hit the point where I can't like it when he finishes well. He's hit the Joe Kelley level with me. Too many people go around when he can't pass them. 

Im glad all you spectators and fans are finally speaking up about this issue with the 948. Its been an ongoing issue for many years at multiple tracks. Lernerville turns a blind eye to it. If you actually watch him and focus on what hes doing on the track hes completely reckless. He has zero respect for anyone else on the track and blames everyone else when things happen. He had 3 incidents on the track alone Friday night and the one with Schneider shouldve warranted a penalization. He is not a customer of SS Chassis anymore. And so now Im speaking out because the sole reason I was thrown out of that place for life was because I confronted him over wrecking my cousin purposely. Thats the real story and nobody was physically assaulted. Drivers will only take so much. The issue needs addressed. With that being said.... Have a good year at whatever tracks you all attend and I hope you all enjoy the show us drivers attempt to put on for you fans.


#448205 Willie White Memorial for Pro-Stock Tonight at PPMS: 9-26-20

Actually the 73 has only ran Lernerville half the time. Hes just finished top 2 in each heat and top 3 or 4 in each feature which helped him accumulate enough points to be 9th. Again they consider themselves a penn Ohio regular but I can see your argument here. Either way I feel Chase is deserving of the $50 and I know he could use the extra money too.


#444743 Lernerville points question

Posted by Foz20J on 25 August 2019 - 09:51 PM

Sharon had 16 pro stocks on the 10th not much more than the viile with with 14

If you do the math, in 8 points races they averaged 25 - 26 cars this year. 28, 30, 27, 18, 28, 28, 16 and 29. The two lower car count nights Im pretty sure they were calling for bad weather and they had a few rainouts this year as well. Lernerville averaged 14 cars this year in 11 races. 4 cars have been competing for a win there. Terry Young was the only other one outside of those cars who won and he drove a helluva race from his 2nd starting position. Sharons payout is $700 for a full field of cars, Penn Ohio rules and no tire rule plus rotating Stocks in there running order. Lernerville is $350 no matter how many cars they get, crate engine only and a tire rule plus the Stocks are always ran last and have for years. Just a few reasons why there car counts are low and have been low. The argument of other tracks besides Sharon are having low car counts is complete BS...if the rules were the same as these other tracks for Stocks then Lernerville would get a very nice field of cars. Its been a premier track that people want to race at. The crate engine cars would still be just as competitive against open cars. Its been proven at Lernerville over the years. Its about giving the fans a good show and drivers another track to race at. Both are good from a business perspective. Nothing is going to change but Im just stating my opinion. Id love to race there still but I dont like the rules the way they are. I live about 20 minutes from there and still support the place as a fan but its disappointing to not be able to race there weekly with what I have now. I tried the crate engine stuff for a season and a half. It just didnt fit me well. Thats why I race elsewhere.

#425757 Autumn-Motive Fest Race Report & Quick Results 9.10

Posted by Foz20J on 14 September 2016 - 03:07 PM

I really don't get what passing 84 cars in a whole season in features has to do with it. Pill draw determines the top 11 positions (the winner from the previous week always starts 12th if they make pill draw through there heat) and with luck of the draw you could start up front every week. Depending on how many features you run in a season (rainouts, mechanical issues, dnf's and not starting features are all factors) a driver could easily pass that many cars. I bet most of the front runners this year passed that many cars all season in features. We ran 19 races (15 regular nights and 4 "special" races). So average that out. The math is pretty easy. 84 divided by 15 = 5.6 so we'll say a driver would have to pass 6 cars a night and 84 divided by 19 = 4.42...so we'll say a driver has to pass 4 to 5 cars a night. Depending on starting position and how many features ran, that's not very hard to do. By the way, who keeps track of how many cars they pass in a feature?? That isn't a statistic most people keep track of in racing. Heat wins, feature wins, top 3's, top 5's and top 10's along with points are what's kept track of.


#425754 Autumn-Motive Fest Race Report & Quick Results 9.10

Posted by Foz20J on 14 September 2016 - 01:33 PM

Not that's it's any of your concern or anybody else's Bob but you need to get your facts straight before coming on here and making comments. I am the one who had to get my engine looked at. My water pump went and heated up the engine. It blew both head gaskets and ruined both heads. If you look up the cost of a set of aluminum heads, gaskets, seals, bolts and labor then you'll find out what the price costs. Not sure who you talk to or where you get your info but you could ask before making assumptions. Racing isn't cheap for any of us. I felt your pain and other people's when Lernerville changed the rules but it's done and over with. They've moved forward and crates are what they want for stocks. It's a kick in the pants when you live close to a track you raced for years and you can't run there because of the rules but bottom line is either adapt and move on or find somewhere else to race. I can't speak for everybody here but the racing doesn't seem much different to me. I've started in the back, middle and front of races this year and have made my way to the front of the pack. The only problem I've had was on a very heavy, slimy track but that can affect anybody in any division. We've had multiple winners from first time winners to drivers who have won before so I'd say that the racing has been good and the crate engine rule is working there. Look at how well the crates ran against the few open engines that showed up to this past weekends race. In my opinion the crate engines are here to stay and I'll continue to run mine in the future. Good luck with whatever it is you decide to do.

Thank you for your concern. Things happen. Wish it didn't. Little disappointed but that's racing. Got a lot of work to do to fix the car and get it ready for this coming weekend. Thanks again.
