Seriously.. you said about a dozen times already "I'm never going back there" and even said it again after the above quoted post. You're not going back, so why continue this?

As I said about 5 pages ago, the only thing that matters now is that your times at that track are over. If they were to change their minds and apologize and invite you back, or you changed your mind and apologized and went mod, no one there is going to like you based on the shitstorm you created. You'll never have fun at that track under any circumstances from here, so just let it go.

i don't like stock myself, but we have several local racers that have raced for years and that's all they run. some say because it evens the field, others because it's easier on the drive train and saves money overall.

novice or sportsman is the only class i've ever heard of people being moved out of because they were dominating.

you should be allowed to run in any spec., stock, or mod class you choose.

It sucks leaving the little pond and going into the mod pond.

robert i want to clear the air. no one went to darin and whined or cried about you running in the stock class with us we were all pretty upset when they asked u to switch. one reason darin asked u to move up was the fact that u ran in the mod class on 11-22 and finished what in the top 3 with a 13.5 in ur car. if u can do that u should run mod. but i understand that u like to run stock as do i and our lap times and lap totals are always close. but reason number two is that the two mod racers that were signed up wanted to come down and run with us also but darin told them no as well as telling u no. so theres none of the discrimination that you have been preaching about. and finally after u put a mod motor in ur car ran 5-10 laps of practice u decided it wasnt for u. u then pulled the motor that i loaned u out packed up ur things had a talk with darin telling him how dissappointed u were and demanded ur money back. which u got ur money and darin then said if u wanted to run stock u could because he didnt want to lose u as a customer but u decided to leave instead of going ahead and racing. sorry bro i knw it sucks that things happened the way they did but whats done is done and it was fun racing against u.....

really?

do you not drink diet soda cuz it doesnt have as much sugar? or is it just not as fun?
the only ones with blood between their thighs are the ones complaining they have to race for a win, stock is not a skills based class.

i was racing til some girls wanted to start crying. no won't waste gas anymore because the hobbyshop track owners wanted to run off a paying customer. great lil hobby.

andy ur right racing was fun, no reason to even be asked to move up or out, STOCK IS NOT A SKILLS BASED CLASS, however sportsman is. point is the owners said straight up i couldn't race stock and for no real reason, discrimination, yes.

have fun racing with no one, no wonder no one wants to come out to race. look at the clowns running it. 2hrs to be forced to a different class, ya lots of buddies out there. . . . .

well maybe u have things u need to clairify with the track owners, because both of them said "i have guys in there complaining." that is when i asked about lap times and previous racers (that no longer race) that "dominated" stock classes there for 2-3 season's, never got an answer....

I thought this was a old thread by the page count..

Im a mod guy myself, Anyone can run in stock for as long as they want at the tracks around here. I myself, seriously wonder why someone would run stock all the time for years on end but each to there own, When your up front running with the constant racer its a real rush.. Thats enuff motivation, for the existing guys to want a better driver in the class

If you dont have someones your trying to beat whats the point in running in that class day after day.. It will just get boring (but if you want boring and the glory good for you),

Maybe if you move to mod more will follow, maybe they are in stock because no one else is in mod.

LOL...wow, two good points on opposite sides of the coin. Novice and Sportsmen classes are always the answer for the on going phenom of "bumping"...Stock should be the initial class in which bumping is eliminated. Stock and after, it should be the Racer's choice if they wish to bump up. With the exception of a Novice class, a racer shouldn't be forced to bump up simply because he or she became skilled within the class they race. In this particular case, the racer is paying the track, the track is not paying racer. You should be allowed to race in any class you like and not be burden with the worry of being bumped simply because you are good at your class. Again with the exception of Novice class. ...J.M.O.
