  1. What a shame Thompson was the best for years now looks like seekonk will be

  2. How can Seekonk be the best when they don’t run SK’s?

  3. So, will the cars be compatible with either Stafford or Waterford (if it isn’t foreclosed on?) Sure wouldn’t be wise to build a car just for Thompson, unless you have Hoenig money!!

  4. DiDi, most cars already are compatible with Waterford… SK, SKL, Sportsman, Late Models and Mini Stocks can all go there with little to no changes. Stafford is the odd track out… They try to be “unique” and end up screwing themselves on this deal. Sportsmans cant go there without engine change, Mini Stocks are non existent at Stafford, and Late Models aren’t even close to the same car! SKL and SK are the only ones that really can go over with very little changes… My call is most will go to Waterford just because they don’t have to make much of a change.

    That being said, what Thompson is doing is very interesting and there is still going to be a LOT of racing even with a minimized schedule… People need to step up and support them and applaud them for not simply shutting down the oval completely like 99% of other tracks would have, and HAVE done…

  5. I don’t understand why we can’t have both TNT and a roadcourse car counts where coming back with Zuidama there. oval tracks been running since what 1938 the old roadcourse didn’t make it. should build dragstrip for Fridays and dirt track for sats make real motorspoerts park. Im just sad’ don’t know what ill do on Thurs nights, Thunder roads to far away..

    Thompson has been, is, and will always be a special event only oval track. Just about everyone who has tried to make a go of weekly racing there (and there has been a bunch) has lost their shirt eventually.

    Some tracks can only succeed as special events only, Thompson is one of those places. Be thankful that ownership is creative enough to find other revenue sources to keep the place around as a track for the near future anyway.

  7. Jack Darling 86MA says

    many years ago when I started racing at Seekonk & Westboro, close to a hundred cars would show up every week. They had 4 heat races at Seekonk, and the top six made the feature. Westboro had 3 full fields,of cars, and had a consi. The rules were pretty much all the same. As promoters got greedy, they started changing rules, figuring the cars would only come to their track. Those promoters were wrong. The owners should all get together, and publish their rules–they are the ones spending the money and giving up time with their families to support the sport. Let the track owners contact them if they want cars and crowds. One set of rules per division is enough for the whole country.
