Hearty Crop Of Rookies Battling On Track With Valenti Modified Racing Series

Jacob Perry is part of hearty crop of rookies competing this year with the Valenti Modified Racing Series

By Denise DuPont

WINCHESTER, N.H. – The Valenti Modified Racing Series arrived at the high banks of Monadnock Speedway on Saturday for the second event of the season with five rookies – Ryan Doucette, Jacob Perry, Derek Robbie, Dylan Rock and Cameron Sontag – hitting the track as part of the starting field

Cameron Sontag from Sterling Mass. pilots the No. 13 family owned Modified with the Valenti Modified Racing Series. He finished his heat race fourth behind rookie Joel Monahan of Whately, Mass. Sontag started the race eleventh and was up to sixth position by lap ten. At race end he was in fifth right behind veterans: Anthony Nocella, Todd Patnode, Richard Savary and Tony Ricci.

“The MRS series is awesome. We have been following them for a while checking out their races. I have always dreamed of running with these guys. It is incredible to make that dream a reality.” Sontag said with a huge smile on his face. “We had a good run today. The car was OK in practice. But we made a couple of changes and put tires on for the race. The car was actually just awesome. I cannot thank my guys enough and the MRS for putting this show together.

“Monadnock Speedway is definitely my home track and I love it here. It is a great track and I have tons of laps on it. The only changes I could have made tonight was to save the tires for the end of the race. Other than that, that was all we could have done.”

Sontag finished his first outing with the series 15th at Thompson Speedway in a field of 30 Modified competing for 50 green laps of racing at the Icebreaker on April 7,

“It is really cool to run down the straight always there wide open,” Sontag said.

The rookie ran at Thompson a couple of times previous to the 2018 race season opener in other divisions.

Joel Monahan from Whately, Mass. finished his heat race second at Monadnock and started the Spring Dash 100 fifth. Monahan started the race strong running with the leaders for about 25 laps. He was collected up in a racing incident on lap 79 with race leaders in turn three which eliminate his chances for a top ten finish.

The 22-year old Monahan has experience at Monadnock in both the Late Model and SK Light Modified divisions. Monahan did not complete in the Valenti Modified Racing Series opener at Thompson.

Twenty-one year old Derek Robie from Bellingham, Mass. finished eighth in his heat race for his first visit to Monadnock Speedway with a Modified. He was running in seventh as the final race laps clicked off. His night ended when he was collected up in an incident with two other rookies making a hard charge on the last lap. Robie along with Dylan Rock of Enfield, N.H.. and Ryan Doucette of Framingham, Mass. finished their night in the turn two outside wall just after pit road entrance.

Robie was 19th at Thompson, Rock was 27th and Doucette 30th.

Sixteen year old Jacob Perry of Pawcatuck was the fifth rookie competing at Monadnock. He brought out a caution on lap 21 after his car stalled on the front stretch. He pitted and came back to end up ninth. Perry was eighth in his Valenti Modified Racing Series debut at Thompson on April 7.

With a great field of rookies competing with the Valenti Modified Racing Series in 2018, we shall watch closely and follow the young drivers as they mature and grow their racing portfolio.

The Valenti Modified Racing Series returns to action on May 5 at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl.

  2. Al Hoekstra says:

    This series is now officially a joke! Anthony defending champ ? Yuk !!!! And the series is full of who is who !!!! None would make the tour ! Use to love this series

  3. Crazy in NY says:

    None would make the tour

    Really? you know this for a fact? Mellisa Fifeild used to race on the VMRS.
    Never won a consi. They have a limit there and she DNQ many times.
    Going to the Tour where everybody makes it doesn’t give your statement an ounce of credibility.
    Only Stafford kiddies are the elite? Damn you Tour snobs.
    i

  4. Jacob Perry has what it takes to win on the VMRS tour.With time ,he will win on the Whelen Tour.Fire in the belly,patience imparted from his father,and years of racing experience will move him to the front soon.Good luck to all the young racers.

  5. Crazy, you know better, as the car counts rebound on the NWMT, Melissa will have trouble making the race, as she did on the VMRS. That 01 team is sweating, watching the length of the entry list. Wouldn’t be surprised if Melissa for some strange reasons can’t make it to the tracks for qualifying, and has someone else qualify the car for her. wink-wink. So Crazy, that was a very disingenuous rant, you know that the low car counts are what has enabled anybody that shows up to run the NWMT. Once the car counts are back up, cars will be sent home. Car counts look promising lately.

    And let’s be clear… there are only a few cars that are competitive on the NWMT, that realistically have a chance of winning the Championship and winning races. It’s the same cast of characters. Yeah, we say the same thing at the beginning of every season, that there are some 15+ cars that can win any race, but STATISTICALLY, the lion’s share of races are won by 3-4 cars, with a couple of the other top competitive cars, often part-timers, picking up the rest. There are many cars that ‘make the tour’, but have no chance of winning a race, or breaking the top 10. And the SPEC motor has built a very specific distinction between the NWMT and VMRS, pretty much assuring a VMRS-built-motor car will never be competitive on the NWMT.

    There is quite a bit of truth to Al Hoekstra’s comment, about VMRS cars not making it on the Tour. But let me remind y’all that very few VMRS cars run the entire season, very few. The VMRS is more like a loosely organized open show, where cars show up whenever they feel like it, not a real “series” where teams are competing for a stout points fund. The VMRS is populated with many former NWMT participants that were never contenders on the NWMT. Does the VMRS have a $500,000 points fund?

    Want some evidence? Let’s look at the 75 of Chis Pasteryak. He’s been in Tour Type Modifieds for many years, ran the NWMT for many years before he left to run the VMRS and elsewhere. I believe he won the VMRS championship, maybe more than once. He was always a solid midpack NWMT car, and looks to still be a midpack NWMT car. The Big Fish of the VMRS is a midpack car on the NWMT. And the VMRS roster is made up of many names that were never competitive, mostly midpack, and less, when on the NWMT.

    NWMT ≠ VMRS

  6. Fast Eddie says:

    Dareal, the Pasteryaks have run one WMT race, please cut them a little slack, will ya? Chris has a lot more experience now and was running in the top 5 at Thompson for part of the race. And to all of you that seem to think it’s not good if it’s not WMT, you missed a great battle between reigning champ Anthony Nocella vs. muti-time Monadnock champ Todd Patnode for Saturday’s race. There was also some good racing throughout the field, with good (Sammy Rameau) and bad (Woody & Pennick) surprises thrown in. They had 23 cars start, a good sized field for Monadnock on a cold April evening. Also a nice 17 car field of Sportsman Modifieds.

  7. Crazy in NY says:

    The VMRS is populated with many former NWMT participants that were never contenders on the NWMT
    ….like Art Barry? Get real Dareal. I never said the MRS was equal to the Tour..that was your dream.
    You can spin it anyway you like but the field fillers on the Tour couldn’t on a regular basis make the top 24 on the MRS and thus crack the field. Tell Rowan, Woody, (Ted Christopher) et all that tour sux.
    I was responding Al the Hoaks and his idiotic statement. of course you chimed in….it’s what you do.

  8. Crazy, I did say many, not all. I never said you said the MRS was equal to the NWMT.

    This is the no spin zone. Al Hoekstra statement is not idiotic at all.

    Who are you calling the NWMT field fillers? MacDonald? Heagy? Fifield? Yeah, I’d agree with that. What’s your point? Why not say something like the top NWMT contenders, or usual midpack cars? Why did you say that the NWMT field fillers can’t make the top 24 on the VMRS? Why pick on the field fillers? The top NWMT cars would own the VMRS. The top VMRS cars can’t run midpack and compete on the NWMT. There’s no VMRS car that could run the NWMT and be a top contender. Give it up already.

  9. Fast Eddie, I saw the 75 ran near the top 5 for a while at Thompson, after he inherited the position under yellow because he didn’t pit and most of the leaders did. He faded from there, back to midpack.

  10. Crazy in NY says:

    Why did you say that the NWMT field fillers can’t make the top 24 on the VMRS?

    Why because it’s a fact. Once again ,are we comparing cars from one series or drivers?
    Of course there is no question a non Tour car couldn’t compete with the best equipment there. We are talking or a least I am about the gratuitous slamming of drivers on the MRS or the Opens because somebody hasn’t heard of them. To Fast Eddies’ point a great battle was waged between the Nocella and Patnode for the win at (another former) WMT track. Run down Chris P if it makes you feel better but Jon McKennedy is also a former champion on that “lessor’ series and is showing his stuff on the Tour this year. Matt H is fast and a threat at any track he goes to (including the Tour) and he’s not a regular but you snobs love running down those that don’t follow the almighty WMT and that is my larger point. ( and always has been).

  11. Crazy, take a deep breath.

    Are we comparing cars or drivers? Does it matter?

    I’m glad you agree that a non-Tour car can not compete with the best Tour cars. That’s a start.

    Crazy wrote, “We are talking or a least I am about the gratuitous slamming of drivers on the MRS or the Opens because somebody hasn’t heard of them.” Okay, that’s the first time I am seeing that so clear. I’ve made it clear on this and other threads like this that there are plenty (many, but NOT ALL) of ex-NWMT drivers over on the VMRS that were never competitive on the NWMT. The VMRS driver roster is a list of Who’s Who of former NWMT drivers that were mostly midpackers and not winners or championship contenders. Pennink is first and foremost a NWMT regular that dabbles on the VMRS and does very well there. McKennedy has been running the VMRS like a baseball player stuck in the minors waiting to get called up to the NWMT big league. He said as much in an interview. He’s getting a great shot at the NWMT. Look, it’s the drivers of the VMRS that would love to get a call to drive a NWMT ride, not the other way around. Do you agree? Matt H is not a VMRS regular, and I would like to see him be a NWMT regular. He does well at the Open shows, didn’t have as much luck at Tour events, and bigger tracks. He’s good at bullrings though. As far as the 75 goes, that is a car that if in the hands of one of the top crew chiefs, would be a top 5 NWMT CAR. It has all the right parts. There’s decades of experience in that 75 car camp, they run midpack.

    Crazy, you wanna call Tour fans snobs, go right ahead. But consider that with the low car counts on the Tour the last few years, we didn’t see VMRS cars scrambling to fill that void. Wonder why? And with some reasonably good NWMT car counts recently, we’ll never see a VMRS team try to run the Tour and have to qualify into the field. Can you agree with that? Would you be really proud if a VMRS car displaced the 01, 18, 26, 33, 38? Crazy, the VMRS and NWMT are two separate and distinct series. You need to get over that.

  12. John McKennedy, was he not the 2017 ISMA champion? Past VMRS champion in the Art Barry 21, that’s right the same Art Barry that won two WMT championships with Steffy behind the wheel. The same Art Barry that won God knows how many WMT races with some of the best in the business behind the wheel. The same Art Barry that dareal has lumped together with those that could not make it on the WMT so now they are racing on the VMRS? You better get your facts straight before you go running your mouth about something you know nothing about.

  13. humphry, reading comprehension was never your strength.

    Here’s what I wrote about McKennedy, “McKennedy has been running the VMRS like a baseball player stuck in the minors waiting to get called up to the NWMT big league. He said as much in an interview. He’s getting a great shot at the NWMT.” Pay close attention to the (many, but NOT ALL). Get it?

    Here’s what else I wrote, ” I’ve made it clear on this and other threads like this that there are plenty (many, but NOT ALL) of ex-NWMT drivers over on the VMRS that were never competitive on the NWMT. The VMRS driver roster is a list of Who’s Who of former NWMT drivers that were mostly midpackers and not winners or championship contenders.” Again, pay close attention to the (many, but NOT ALL). Get it? Therefore, Art Barry is NOT not lumped together with those that could not cut it on the NWMT. Art is a well known legend. He gives credibility to the VMRS. There may be a couple others besides McKennedy and Art, I did not think it was necessary to list the obvious exceptions. Very lame, humphry, very lame.

    So I noticed you have no comment for what I wrote about the 75… so you agree then?

    Before you try to talk down on someone, you better work your way up to a sixth grade reading comprehension level.

  14. I will correct myself, McKennedy and Bonsignore both won VMRS championships in the Art Barry 2, not 21. The same McKennedy who won the WMT race at Myrtle Beach and the same Bonsignore who won the Ice Breaker. But according to the school yard bully, neither can make it on the WMT just like Art Barry couldn’t.

  15. REPEAT: (many, but NOT ALL)

    Now go through the rest of the entire VMRS roster, identifying all that were former NWMT participants over the years, and how they ALL did on the NWMT.

    Art, Bonsignore, Pennink, and a couple others that were/are competitive NWMT regulars invaded and ran well on the VMRS. Didn’t see VMRS regulars, if there is such a thing, invading the NWMT and stealing wins or placements from the NWMT regulars. McKennedy has been a journeyman just waiting for a shot at the NWMT.

    Go ahead… (many, but NOT ALL)

    There are quite a few new drivers, and most importantly, OWNERS willing to field a car. Without those OWNERS fielding cars, there will be no drivers. Even on the NWMT, there are quite a few new drivers, rookie or just a couple years experience. It’s good to see.

  16. Fast Eddie says:

    If the 75 has all the right parts and pieces, then, once again I’d like to suggest we give then more than just ONE race to get back on the WMT as a possible contender. They probably have a spec motor. If so there is a learning curve for the crew chief for applying the weight and then setting up the car to handle, something they have not dealt with previously. There is also a learning curve for the driver. Most of the WMT drivers have stated before there is a difference in driving technique with the spec engine; Chris needs to learn that. There is a HUGE amount of Modified knowledge on that team. I’m betting they WILL figure everything out, and they WILL be competitive.
    Dareal, I’d like to also refresh your memory to VMRS champion Anthony Nocella finishing THIRD at the Seekonk WMT. With the right equipment and large enough bank account to support a WMT team, I think there are a number of “other” drivers that would do well on the WMT. There’s an old saying that always applies: Speed costs money, how fast do you want to go?

  17. I made my point, you shucked and jived as usual, what else is new, the usual BS. Comprehend this, I don’t care what you wrote nor do I care what you write in the future, you loose………

  18. Crazy in NY says:

    Crazy, the VMRS and NWMT are two separate and distinct series. You need to get over that.

    I need to get over something I acknowledged? Matt H doesn’t run the VMRS? NO SHI…….

    I included the opens shows in my statement. Maybe YOU better brush up on your reading comprehension. You weren’t in the mix anyway I was responding to AL Hoaks.. are you his agent?

  19. Fast, the 75 does have a spec engine and you are correct many, many years of family racing experience on that team never mind the outside resources they can draw on. They have run two races Myrtle Beach and Thompson, it will take a while to jell. Nocella finished 3rd at Seekonk and was not running a spec engine (trust me I was in tech and witnessed it), not to shabby running against a field full of spec engines. The kid could be competitive on the tour and he proved it at Seekonk.

  20. Fast Eddie, money can’t buy everything. It certainly helps. But a good crew chief goes a long way. All the best parts won’t perform without a good crew chief. We’ve all seen those teams.

    The 75 has a SPEC and the learning curve should be just a few minutes. The 6 and 51 were the first cars to use a SPEC and they were slicing and dicing right away. Look, crew chiefs would love to move weight, and when you put a SPEC in, you can move that weight. It’s that simple. BOOM! Got scales? You either know where weight works or you don’t. That weight placement allows the car to do things it wasn’t able to do with the weight distribution of the built engine car.

    Crazy 🤪 and humphry 🤡, fans don’t like when the Cup drivers run in the xfinity series and steal wins from the regular xfinity drivers. There’s no problem in the other direction, that of xfinity drivers invading and stealing winnings from Cup regulars, it doesn’t happen. VMRS teams don’t invade and steal winnings from the NWMT, but NWMT teams/drivers run in the VMRS and do very well. What does that tell you?

    Crazy, there’s no snobbery as you have alleged. You wrote, “Of course there is no question a non Tour car couldn’t compete with the best equipment there.” It’s just fans preferring one over the other.

    humphry… you think you made a point. Whatever it was it seemed to constantly change.
    nyah-nyah-NYAH-nyah-nyah!!!! nyah-nyah-NYAH-nyah-nyah!!!! nyah-nyah-NYAH-nyah-nyah!!!!

  21. Fast Eddie says:

    WMT teams running the VMRS? There are WMT drivers running well with top VMRS teams. However, the only WMT teams I’ve seen run the VMRS once in a great while is Eric Goodale, and then you have to go back to Todd Szegedy around 2012 with the #2 team.

  22. That’s right Fast Eddie. I was hoping to see a response from humphry or Crazy about the lack of NWMT teams running the VMRS. And frankly, and when a NWMT “team” ran the VMRS, I do think it was to shakedown a car, get some seat time, do some testing and research. The #2 NWMT ran the Seekonk open for testing purposes to get ready for the NWMT race at Seekonk a couple years ago. I do not think these NWMT cars/drivers were genuinely running the VMRS for a championship.

    Great bunch of rookies all over the place!!!!!

  23. Crazy in NY says:

    Off on a tangent much? WTH does that have to do with anything ? The MRs exist because not everybody that wants to run a TT Mod can afford that series, or put up with the bull, or……..?
    Your comparison is wrong as well. It should be Cup vs Arca if you wanted to go there. The snob remark I get from reading all the crap on here with people (like you) that pay short shrift to other than the NASCAR series. If you can’t see that..not a lot I can say. They’re all Mods, they all deserve respect and on any given day ANY of them can put on a great show or a stinker. (For the 1000th time)

  24. “And frankly, and when a NWMT “team” ran the VMRS, I do think it was to shakedown a car, get some seat time, do some testing and research. The #2 NWMT ran the Seekonk open for testing purposes to get ready for the NWMT race at Seekonk a couple years ago”.

    And you know this how? Maybe it was because the race paid $10,000.00 to win when the majority of the WMT races did not pay anywhere near that back in 2016.

  25. humphry, they said they ran the Seekonk open as a practice/test in preparation for the NWMT race in a published interview. jeeeeezus…. It’s been discussed on these forums numerous times.

  26. Crazy, not off tangent, just an appropriate example you don’t like. Like Cup vs ARCA really makes a difference? Chase your own shiny object. The VMRS is its own series, the NWMT is their own, and you wrote this, “Of course there is no question a non Tour car couldn’t compete with the best equipment there.” With “there” being the NWMT. The VMRS are not Tour cars, and can’t compete with the competitive Tour cars. What are you yapping about this time? You are saying that the non Tour cars can’t compete with the Tour cars, why are you upset and calling others snobs for the same thinking?

    humphry, make sure your oxygen is flowing.

  27. Dareal wrote “nyah-nyah-NYAH-nyah-nyah!!!! nyah-nyah-NYAH-nyah-nyah!!!! nyah-nyah-NYAH-nyah-nyah!!!!”

    Really? Are you serious? I would be proud of that response, LOL.

    I am going to make this short and sweet and ask you 4 questions that I asked you at least a dozen times previously on racedayct and you have yet to answer;

    1. Have you ever worked on a modified?
    2. Have you ever been a crew chief on a modified?
    3. Have you ever driven a modified?
    4. Have you ever owned a modified?

    No more shucking, no more jiving, no more spinning, no more dodging, just please answer the questions. I am sure there are many inquiring minds that would like to know.

    I hope you can comprehend these questions because it doesn’t get any simpler.

  28. humphry, please explain the relevance of your 4 precious questions.

    With regard to this thread:

    I see no qualifying value in having worked on a modified, although some would brag about it. There are plenty of people that have worked on a modified. No big deal there. Just because you’ve turned a few dzus fasteners doesn’t make you an omnipotent expert.

    I see no qualifying value in having been a crew chief, although some would brag about it. There are plenty of unknowledgeable crew chiefs. Only a few are really good. Owners change crew chiefs almost as often as their underwear.

    I see no qualifying value in having actually driven a modified. How many crew members, crew chiefs, owners etc. have driven a modified? How many crew chiefs were drivers? Not many to none. And quite frankly, I’m not impressed with drivers’ knowledge of car setups. Very few have any idea as to what makes the car behave the way it does. Just listen on the radio.

    I see no qualifying value in having owned a modified. There are PLENTY of owners that have no clue what they are doing. I mean, that is too obvious. Are the best crew chiefs car owners?

    Are you sure those are the only questions you want to ask? Are you missing any, or deliberately omitting some questions? Are you sure?

    I know a few people that have never done any of the above, and they know far more than you, and are very successful in modified racing.

    And you couldn’t possibly comprehend my involvement, as evidenced by your complete misguidance as to what you think is important.

  29. 4 questions, 4 answers, that simple. Yes or no…………

  30. Crazy in NY says:

    I see no qualifying value in………..

    Often repeated, this reminds of former vice president Al Gore.
    Dareal are you he in real life? But…you spelled DZUS correctly so I can see where your
    “expertise” on all things Modified racing is grounded.
    Maybe it’s time to come up from the basement.

  31. humphry wrote, “4 questions, 4 answers, that simple. Yes or no…………”

    Please explain what you think the answers to these questions will conclude.

    Go ahead…

  32. Crazy, you had no idea what a DZUS fastener was until now, admit it.

  33. humphry, please tell us your answers to those precious four questions.

    Go ahead…

  34. That is easy for me, yes to all 4. Now it is your turn……………

  35. And humphry, you just proved my point. Just because you worked on a modified, were a crew chief of a modified, drove a modified, or owned a modified, doesn’t mean you know what you are talking about.

    So what point do you think you were getting to with those four precious questions?

    I know plenty of crew guys that are unremarkable. Enthusiastic, but helpless. Some are good. Which are you?

    There are numerous crew chiefs that suck. Far more than there are those that are any good. Don’t believe it? Look at how there are only a few competitive cars out of all the cars that have all the best parts. Which are you? They all use the SAME tires.

    Many, if not most, drivers are no help when setting up a car or adjustments. They need to stay in their lane, not call or dictate specific adjustments. This is obvious if you listen on the radio. Drivers are drivers, that is all. If the driver is not reporting on the right things to the crew chief, he’s useless. humphry, what should the driver be reporting back to the crew chief? Rounds in each corner? Air pressure? Heim joint status? Panhard bar angle? Torque arm angle? Other? There are drivers that can take 1-2 seconds off the 01 lap times. And drivers that will be 1-2 seconds slower in the #2. Your point?

    Owners are not experts at all. If they were all that smart, all cars would be competitive. I’m thankful that all these owners field cars, makes it interesting. But it is clear that there is a small subset of cars that are competitive. Same parts as everyone else. How could that be???? O-M-G???!?!?!?! Take 20 identical cars, give them to 20 different owners, tell them to go get crew chiefs and a driver, and you’ll see a broad spectrum of performance. Get it? Which were you… competitive or back marker? Interestingly, all these teams head to the track thinking they know more than all the other teams. LOL!!!!

    I’m not impressed just because someone is/was a crew, crew chief, driver or owner. What about any other roles?

    There are plenty of cars this year with all the best parts, same tires, and there is a huge spectrum of performance, only a few are competitive. Care to explain why? Are your precious four questions related in any way? If so, please explain.

  36. 4 questions, 4 answers, that simple. Yes or No…………

    What do you not comprehend, I am waiting for YOUR answer…………

  37. Crazy in NY says:

    hump…give it up man. You asked 3 times and got 3 short stories in return.

    Bleacher creature looking thru the small end of the binoculars is all you got to know.

  38. humphry, very simple, state your point with the four precious questions. Those questions on their own, or in combination do not prove a thing, regardless of the answers. So, state your point that you are trying to make with those four simple questions.

    I know quite a few guys that have never worked on a mod, been a crew chief on a mod, driven a mod, or owned a mod, yet are very valuable and helpful to their mod teams. And then there are the guys that have worked on a mod, been a crew chief for a mod, driven a mod, or owned a mod, that really were not helping their cause, they weren’t any good at it. They did it, but weren’t any good at it. So again, what’s your point with the four questions? Should be a very simple explanation. Go ahead.

  39. Joe Lajoie says:

    C’mon, we all know dareal doesn’t want to blow his cover!
    However, he’s quite easy to find. He’s the guy in the stands with all the Matchboxes lined up in front of him (or maybe it’s Hot Wheels, I hear they have bigger flux capacitors) wearing the King of Trolls crown and sporting an arm sling because he sprained his shoulder from chronic Patting Myself on the Back Syndrome.

  40. You are probably correct. More like a novel. Need to add the program, radio scanner, headsets, hot dog and soda. The complete package!

  41. So humphry, no point to the four questions? Again, I was right.

  42. You got it Joe. He is going to need shoulder surgery then what will he do, LOL……..

  43. Crazy in NY says:

    yet to old to join the kid flaggers down near the fence. Too soon old, too late smart.
    Snowflake material I’m thinkin’// (grin 🙂

  44. humphry, do you have a point? Those four questions, what was the point? None, right?

  45. Crazy, you are something 😂. Maybe he will break out the new flagging set that Santa left him for Christmas. He will be the envy of all the kids and has most likely been saving them for the sizzler!

  46. humphry, still no point? Those four questions, what was the point?

  47. I will take your answer as 4 – NO. Figured that all along…………..

  48. Still no point? C’mon humphry, what’s the point to those 4 precious and useless questions.

    I sure hope you can be right someday. But you’re used that by now.

  49. Just go to Stafford, sit in the stands with the rest of your bleacher creature friends, listen to your scanner on your RE head set and maybe you will hear some new terminology that you can attempt to impress us with. Don’t forget the 🍔 and 🌭 along with the 🥤.

  50. Well just look at that!!!! humphry is loinin’ to use emojis!!! What a big boy!!!!

    So humphry, you don’t know why you asked those 4 questions? I’d have to think if you did you would have hammered that home by now. Or maybe you see how those 4 questions are worthless, regardless of the answers? C’mon, please tell me why you asked those 4 precious questions? Please?

    And where will you be at Stafford?

  51. I would like you to answer those four questions dareal because I am curious of your background . How about these questions. What state are you from? How long have you been going to the races? How old are you? What is your favorite track?Who ,in your opinion, is the best modified driver ever? And before you ask me why I want to know, I will tell you. I think you are a very thoughtful,knowledgeable, intelligent person who has his hand on the pulse of racing and would like to catch up with you at the races and have a beer with you so I may be able to learn a few things from you.

    Dareal will NEVER blow his cover of King of the Trolls!!!
    FYI, since we’re not racing this weekend, I’ll be standing up by the handicapper’s booth in turn 1 with a Sharpie hat and Eddie Marshall shirt. Maybe if mommy and daddy let you in the pits you can stop up and say hi, but I’m definitely not holding my breath.

  53. humphry, do you think only pilots know anything about planes? You think the tech that assembles/repairs an airplane engine is the only person that knows anything about those engines? There are plenty of people that drive cars everyday, most can barely refuel the car. Most have no idea how to check the oil level, and yet they drive whenever and wherever they so please. But per your logic, if they drive a car, they must be some sort of expert. And if they don’t drive, what does that mean? Does that mean they can’t know anything else about the car? So I really would like to see your explanation of your four precious questions. Hey humphry, the astronauts, did they do everything themselves? Things like conceptualize, create, design, and build those rockets? Do the astronauts own NASA? How many people in NASA know more about rockets than the astronauts? LOL!!!!! I can go on and on… Really thought you’d be glad to explain those four precious questions. What about those car factories? Who really knows what’s going on in all those car factories? The stockholders? The laborers? Who really owns those factories? humphry?

    Ed J, I’m from the state of euphoria. I’ve been going to the races for decades. Is that long enough? I’m old enough to have been going the races for decades. Is that old enough? Favorite track is tough… they all offer different experiences. It’s like comparing the kids… love them all the same. Best driver in my opinion is Richie Evans. Nobody has come close. Nobody. That his Tee shirts are still showing up at tracks and for sale is testament to his endearing and enduring stature. I don’t see that for any other athlete or celebrity. I have no interest in having a beer with you.

  54. So how did that work out for you ED? How did it feel to be belittled by a self-professed resident expert, the man, the myth, the legend.

    I figure he is about 5′ with a HUGE case of little mans syndrome. I also think his first name may be Dick………..

    Where will I be, somewhere you are not, LOL……………..

    Were you ever in a Miss America contest? What a statement. EVERYBODY has favorite track.
    I’m waging you’re from CT. We’ll find you. Look for the keyboard with smoke coming out of it.
    You own him hump.

  56. So humphry, still no idea why you asked those precious 4 questions? You won’t be at Stafford? Bigly sad! You’ll be huddling with Sybil at a computer screen watching the live updates with a can of CheezWiz.

    Crazy, I have no favorite track. I would like world peace. I like Stafford for the flat curves and challenges that presents, Thompson for the length and banking, Loudon for the speed and sweeping turns, Bristol for the banking and concrete, Riverhead for the close confines and nostalgia, etc. Tracks present a different challenge and facet of modified racing. Ever hear the term “race the track”? The track is why some teams miss the setup. There’s a challenge in each track. No favorites. LOL!!!

    Surprised you guys aren’t ripping on Richie Evans as my pick for best driver.

  57. You would like world peace. OMG, we are dealing with Miss Universe here! There’s his qualifications for being the self proclaimed racing expert. Don’t forget your 👸 today you will be the hit of the stands. This keeps getting better and better.

    Just keep taking your meds and you will be fine.

  58. humphry, still no explanation for your 4 magic questions? Remember, those questions that prove nothing. C’mon, please explain those questions. Tell us what you think they were going to do for you.

    Kentucky Derby is coming up, talking about horsepower. Over 30,000 horses are born each year with the hopes of making it to the Kentucky Derby. Only ~20 per year make it to the Kentucky Derby. But they were all horses, and the owners and trainers and jockeys were all owners and trainers and jockeys. All 30,000 of each.

  59. Bla, bla, bla, bla, bla, bla, bla, same old, same old………….

  60. And still no reason for your precious 4 questions. Yep, I was right again, humphry was completely pointless.

  61. Crazy in NY says:

    Horses are born with hopes?. I’m done with this thread. 4 little questions yet seems like a mountain range. Long live the King.

  62. Crazy, that you don’t understand the allegorical examples I provided shows that you haven’t a clue at how worthless humpies 4 precious questions are. Crazy, don’t you want to see the reason behind humpies 4 precious worthless questions?

    Sybil always promised he was done. Then wait a minute, he came back.

  63. How in the hell can anyone read a horses mind to know they are born with hopes? Lives in the state euphoria! He is an equestrian, NASA, automobile and political expert. Talk about pointless, more like pathetic. I am done with this jamoke!
