Well thanks to all that has help us but i dont think its in the cards for us to win a feature event. Got the motor and got the car and now hear comes the calls or the lack there of. Three weeks in a row sent to the back for stuff not are fault or spun and no one seen Anyone up for a little PINGPONG lol Oh well goodluck to all and i think next week we will just start in the back so we dont get sent there in the middle of the feature.

Be patient, it will come............

If you can't work em in close & git em in your face with their orange landing gear down, don't bother taking the safety off......

They did that to me two weeks in a row.
I another racer kept cutting down and running into me spinning him self out.
I talked to the owner(not yelling). and it seemed to help.

Got my first feature win of the season last night. Had a half a lap lead over the second place car....and the car was pushing bad too. Have all the guys on this forum to thank for this win. Thanks guys. will come....believe me....and when you get it, it will be worth they wait. That way too you can throw it back in there face. After my win last night....I didnt say anything to anyone that gave me a rough time all year....just had a smile a mile wide and made sure they saw it. You'll get it yet bud...just be patient. After the first one of the year...then the rest will come easy. Good luck.

So true Guys we have been close and car is really fast and we cant wait to give right back at them because of stuff they say about us. We can be a little proud at times but heck we put alot of time in this sport and a whole lot of money. This nit might have been the one and this makes three weeks in a row. We worked are way up to like 6th with plenty of time and got spun and got sent to the back. We might have been higher that 6th not sure would have to watch tape that my wife does. Then on restart a car came down into us right away on accident and spun us to the infield so two cautions and you are gone. But if they would have seen the first spin we wouldnt have got sent to the back they just thought we spun. To boot the guy that spun us came and slammed into us like we did something to him but atleast my protest got him a fine and maybe more not sure. But retaliation on the track i think should be neal of none. We put to much into all our cars to tear them up on purpose. We will keep plucking at them and will let you know when we get them.

It took us 2 1/2 seasons to win our first and it was all the sweeter after all the time it took. Keep plugging away and it will come. Expect the bad calls when you first start doing well, eventualy they will see you are there to stay and things will change. NEVER GIVE UP!

Steve, you've got to learn the fine art of gesturing to the officials. Not obscene gestures, but frantic arm waving and such to show that you are angry with the other driver and want to know what they (the officals) are going to do about it. You would be amazed how many times it works.

I will never give up but wow maybe my mouth cost me more than i thought. We really were bragging on what we could build not the driver and being 1 of 2 fords and 60 chevys that have raced at our track we arnt bad just not the best driver yet!!!!!!!.LOL I shouldnt do this but come Join our forum because i have met a ton of nice guys on here and really wished everywhere you raced where like it is here. Helping others and having fun. Well at our track alot of jealously going on and alot of streetstocks. We are nothing special but the cars we build with all your help are some of the best. Our Website is We run a streetstock and do to bad calls we still set in 8th place or maybe its just me. I always give out more than i expect to others and so do most of you on here. Dont laugh to much at all our post we actually give them a pretty hard time but we have to we are just one of two that said we only passed cars that were on the highway on the way to the track lol Have fun guys and maybe come race with us someday. We have a great mod show at the end of season with a great payout from what i have seen one of the better ones. Steve Dupree
