Great Job Donnie!!!

I got to see him at Kansas Speedway - and he definately looked good there. He had his truck all the way up to 3rd when someone got into him on a re-start and I watched him go sideway's between #3 & #4..... and never lost it...

It was a beautiful driving demonstration.

Unlike when he took his 12th scale straight into the wall at the ROAR OnRoad Nats....

I was the one who made the Super-Death Defying, ultra athletic, cornermarshall to keep his dead 12th scale from becoming a launch pad for about 3-4 other oncoming cars into the sweeper....

I turned it on for the last few laps. Guess its ok in trucks to punt the leader out of your way. If i did that on the rc track I'd be called a hack.

Earnhardt senior used to do it all the time. How come he was regarded as a 'hero' and everyone else is a hack? I smell a double standard. Welcome to short track oval.

Congrats to Donny Lia.

I'll give my props to David Starr who is the one who was "punted" by one Mr. Lia. He took the high road in his interview after the race and didn't slam Lia like he should have. You know he was disappointed being hacked on the last lap like that but it was an exciting finish.

Default Thanks

Thanks alot guys! I really appreciate the props

As for the David Starr thing, we spoke after the race and he agreed with me, there was nothing he could say after he wrecked Setzer to take the lead in the first place. Getting into someone on the last lap for the win on a short track is one thing, turning them around and putting them in the fence is another.

Blatantly trying to kill Ron Hornaday at 180mph in the quad oval at Lowes is also an entirely different matter I would assume.

Anyways, thanks again guys!

Great run in the CTS race, and whatta win.

I saw in Bodine's interview where he said Lia dove in a lot harder than he had all race, and he knew what was going to happen....

uh YEAH! It was the FINAL LAP - not like you'd show that move 3 or 4 laps early~

The Whelan Modified Series brought many North East fans, but R/C Racers nationwide get to root for one of the R/C Guys in Nascar - which is always COOL.

GOOD JOB

Great run Donny!
