In today’s world of 24 hour news cycles and instant reaction via Twitter and Facebook and whatever other new realm of social media is popping up that week.

And short track racing doesn’t miss out on it.

On Sunday at the New London-Waterford Speedbowl Ted Christopher and his Doug DiPisa owned Prestige Motorsports team took a special victory lane picture with SK Modified champion Keith Rocco and a special cutout of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. DiPisa doesn’t shy away publicly of his support for Trump.

But on Monday morning, after news broke on RaceDayCT that Christopher had been disqualified from the victory in yesterday’s SK Modified feature at the Speedbowl, the internet reacted quickly with a zinger mixing Trump politics with victory lane euphoria from a photo posted (without caption) by the New London-Waterford Speedbowl.

Check it out below.



  1. Looks like the DiPisa duo brought their own milk crates to stand on their short lived victory tour. The black haired girl is at least 4 inches taller than either of them. Is the two fingers for how many different trucks they bought the gas at? Absolutely disgraceful.

    These are the Deplorables that Hillary was talking about.

    Prestige should move up to the NWMT. We need another clown car.

  4. darealgoodfella says

    It’s rigged!!! Nobody knows this better than me. I have huge hands.

  5. darealgoodfella says

    I will only accept the results if I win!!!

  6. That picture says it all you really aren’t that smart

    “Its called modified racing. Everyone’s full of crap !!” – Doug DiPisa

    I have a different issue here. The sk lites are scheduled to run this coming saturday. The field was set this past sat. Car 76 was on pole but can’t start for some reason , the whole inside line should move forward. Not reset the whole field as if he didn’t qualify there? From go karts to sprint cup that is the way it is done why would it be different for the sk lites for our last race. Shawn Monohan can you please answer this for me?

  9. Rick,
    My understanding is the 76 will be at the track.

  10. Rick, where did you get your half baked information?

  11. Doug got money from fuel and from selling hotdogs too

  12. darealgoodfella says

    Don’t forget to vote on November 28th!!!!

  13. If the 76 could not have taken the green last Saturday night then he should start scratch this week not get his spot back. Anything other than that is wrong.

  14. Humphry,
    I don’t think anybody said the 76 would not have started Saturday. Someone said they heard the 76 would not return this week, which is not true. The 76 team will be there.

  15. Shawn, Rick said he can’t start, not me.

  16. darealgoodfella says

    Look at that picture… Christopher looks like a cardboard cutout.

  17. darealgoodfella says

    I just can’t stop laughing at that picture.

    Thank you!!!!

  18. darealgoodfella says

    Honestly, that silver hair one looks like a 3, might have been a 5 about 50 years ago, the black hair one is at best a 5 and on the way down. What are they doing there? I’m so glad I could be there and make this victory possible! None of this would be possible without me, I am the only one that can do this, whatever that may be. And I do it BIGLY!!!!

    Don’t forget to get out and vote for me on November 28th!!!

  19. darealgoodfella says

    Anymore pictures?

  20. darealgoodfella says

    “Three my lord, pick THREE!!!”

  21. darealgoodfella says

    What a way to end the season, on a high note!!!

    Thanks for the laughs!!!!!!

  22. darealgoodfella says

    Anybody have a picture of that crew after they were DQ’ed. That’s got to be priceless.

  23. darealgoodfella says

    That $5,000 could have bought plenty of Sunoco Race Fuel!
