  1. The people that complain shout too much racing heads are going to explode when they see Saturdays schedule.

  2. Waterford, do the right thing and postpone until next weekend. The forecast absolutely sucks until Sunday. You can’t get the whole show in on Sunday and your running against Lee if you try it. By postponing you would probably get more cars and a bigger crowd which equates into more money. Do the right thing, don’t be your stubborn self and make this a much bigger thing than it already is.

  3. Rain should end by early afternoon tomorrow, Humphry. No way postponing would make sense.

  4. When you have a dozen heat races and 17 features to run on Saturday how does it not make sense to postpone? There’s no way everything can be run on sunday with no cars allowed to fire before noon.

  5. The best thing for the competitors and the fans would be postpone Saturday. The best thing for the business end of the track is to get the people into the pits today at $60 a head – adds up to big $$. Going to be a long damp, windy, cold night

  6. Well I guess you can look at it as the pits will be full but no one in the stands to watch, makes sense to me, LOL………..

  7. This should be a no brainer next weekend is 100℅ the right thing to do but don’t matter to me, I already pulled my own plug I’m not spending all that money to sit there and be miserable all weekend. Good luck and have fun to all that decide to go which will not be very many.

  8. Tomorrow is looking like a half decent day, but I definitely pulled the plug on today, more rain coming not worth it. Hopefully they don’t run Tri Track or the Sks too late tomorrow!

  9. They could have gotten in at least 4 features in today if the skipped the heats… supposed start raining around 2:30 till 6

  10. Crazy in NY says

    Next weekend is 100% a no-brainier? Can I borrow your crystal ball I’d like Monday’s lottery numbers.

    If you want to make the case that there is too much racing Saturday OK but if they ran features only on the bulk of the Sat portion (if Sunday became necessary) they could get it in. It’s autumn and if you expect shirtsleeve weather for racing this time of year your nuts. Explain the large crowd for the Turkey Derby and the Gobbler ( Accord Speedway ) both after Thanksgiving. Stop complaining..jeez.

  11. Bob’s big, wet, cold, nobody is going attend show for the second year in a row. LOL. They could postpone. Lee will probably have to do the same. Seekonk is next week as well. Good luck with all that. N-S Shootout is the following week. I was good with the days when the World Series closed the season on racing in New England.

  12. I agree Mark, the World Series should be the last race of the year in New England.

  13. I think thanksgiving weekend would be perfect for a 3 division race at any of the 3 ct tracks.. I remember the Turkey Gobbler at Stafford one year.. packed house, tons of cars, great race.. Ray Miller won in the Simons 9. I’m sure Bear remembers that race very well!! Not taking away from the Turkey Derby but it does not make sense for CT teams to travel to NJ anymore
