  1. What are the details regarding the DQ in the Dare Stock feature? Oversize motor?

  2. For those not in attendance, how about a little more of the story on the Dare Stock race. The 47 Thompson Limited Sportsman came across the finish first. He started in the back and stormed to the front. Problem is the 46 & 47 are not legal to run in the Dare Stock race. For years, the 46 never did much more than crash, cause crashes and/or straggle along in the back of the pack anyway. Stafford does not need the Thompson cast-offs, but they continue to allow them. If the car owner can field 2 Thompson cars, why not make one legal competitive car for Stafford? No reason to maintain Thompson cars. Switch over to Stafford or stay home. Congratulations to Brandon Michael!

  3. Rafter Fan: As it was explained, it’s a Thompson Limited Sportsman that’s allowed to test the waters so to speak, but was not division legal.

  4. Angryracefan says

    Back gate money is more important than their regular weekly racers in this division!

  5. It’s either that or turn the dare stocks into a limited sportsman/street stock division. Thomson only runs 7 times a year why not capitalize on that. Might even pull some Waterford competitors to Stafford. Besides the auto trannys in this division it’s what cost the teams the most.
