Yup, we're teammates now, so start getting all those set-up notes out, I'm gonna need to look at those . It's gonna be fun working with Pulfer and all you other CRC drivers again.

Dumb Question: was the masters class created to weed out the fast guys or give the "slower" older guys a place to race? The reason I ask is b/c locally its the "old guys" that whip up on us "young guys".

I fully expect to see you and your Gen-X participating at this year's Halloween Classic, good sir.

If you were a 50 year old dude with some skill would you be real happy to find Barry Baker in your heat? Many of the Masters racing some of the ROAR events are full sponsored drivers who can still compete rather well in the open field....shouldn't they be forced to stay there?
Um, wouldn't that be illegal? :P age discrimination!!! Neighbor's in his 40's and he still owns me on the track :P

Old people started age discrimination by not letting people under 55 move into their trailer parks.

People can do whatever they want but, a whole room full of masters trophies doesn't equal one regular trophy.

People can continue to race the watered down classes and dominate, but they have to live with knowing that they avoided the real competition.

When I race I dont like winning only casue the fast guys arent racing my class.

I don't know what I consider old. Definatley not 40 or 50.

I think if someone is good enough to have sponsors they are good enough to race the regular classes.

Actually there have been events where the top three in Masters were actually faster than the top 3 in STOCK!! Let's see, Eli Ezrow, Chuck Lonergan, Frank Calandra, Bob VanWagner, Skip Starkey, Jim Piersol, Tom Esposito. Damn you're right, no real competition there.
