Gary...yep...

Sucks to be on the receiving end. I was most definitely not the only one, either. It was frustrating because I'd go into each main with the attitude that I will pass clean, and if it doesn't come out clean, I'll wait up. I wish everyone in the main had the same attitude; a few definitely didn't and turned defensive blocking into offensive take-outs, as well.

I hear you. I know I hit Corey G in my Rubber main by accident on the first lap, waited for him and went back to 10th because of it (I was on the pole) . I worked my way back to the front, but I didn't want to finish ahead of people because I took someone out at the beginning. I don't drive like that and if I screw up, I don't want to benefit because of it or screw someone else up because of it either. Too many people have been taking racing too seriously for too long which is making it less and less fun. There's nothing really that Scotty could have done about the rough driving; it was just a bit disappointing that people were driving like that.

I don't know Timmy...Lemieux seems to be able to do 27 or 28 laps with that attitude...

That reminds me of something I used to see a lot posted when I would do Sim Nascar racing online...

My rear bumper is not your brakes!

I can't say anyone hit me or took me out all weekend long, I was lucky to be with decent guys. I think the only time I hit anyone was Corey (who I waited for) and Bob Novak (I tried passing somewhere I shouldn't have...no-one's fault but mine). I just think there's too much pressure or stress involved with any racing over the past few years. I just think that more and more people are looking at the net end results versus enjoying the racing and competition is all. This has nothing to do with this race or the organizers, just something I've noticed over the last 2-3 years all over the country at a number of different races...

I didnt mean it like that, I was saying it as a joke, as everyone takes everyone out. I agree that should be how it is. Even tho sometimes I don't work like that but not on purpose.

I guess you dont remember running someone into the inside of the backstraight....that sounds like some clean blocking to me

Scotty,

Had a great time again. Would have been better if I had the balls to stay in modified but I'll try to keep racing for next year.

Don't know why you do it but thanks.

Josh, I was on the inside...that would explain the yellow paint that was embedded around my right front wheel nut. I drove straight and was planning on holding the inside line going into the sweeper when amazingly you drifted into me...wonder how that happened.

It doesn't matter anymore, it's over and done with. Racing is racing, I just didn't think it would be quite that way.

Josh H I'm not taking sides here but, i watched that main..in fact i watched them all and your car looked good but, you did pinch Brian off on the back straight during one of the first few laps. sorry bro if you don't think it was like that, but i saw what i saw, and its kinda hard not to say you didn't do it when i saw it happen


lazyboy


BTW congrats to Paul L with his TQ and Win in mod sedan

I cannot say enough about how awesome my first Novak race was. I mean-not from anything I did, but on how well run this race is. I also want to say thanks to Bean and Chicky for the ride up there and back and to all the effort that was given to me by my friend Charlie (Charie Novak- ) and the man himself Bob Novak. Also-thanks to all the guys down our aisle who looked out for each other and were all such excellent pit Beotches!!

As an uninvolved third party.....I saw most of the stock heats and mains. Brian McGreevy had in my opinion the fastest stock car period, but I was amazed at how many people he crashed into every run. Absolutely no patience at all. When I saw that accident in the main, I just thought to myself "there he goes again...". With a little more restraint, he could of easily contended for the TQ or win. Maybe just a lesson for the future...
