Special Highlights Fill Episode 33 Of Unmuffled

So what did you miss on Episode 33 of Unmuffled?

Well there’s Shawn Monahan, so you really don’t have to say much after that.

Some of Monahan’s interesting talking points:

On his tempered nature in the Limited Sportsman division at Thompson Speedway:

“I owe a lot of that to the fear that someone like [race director] Scott Tapley puts into the mix.”

On the current state of aggressiveness in the division:

“For the most part, even though the show is exciting, the level of hatred in the Limited Sportsman division is much more contained than it was years ago. Years ago they were collecting money and putting bounties out behind the scenes to take care of business. It was pretty ugly.”

On the Sunoco World Series:

“The best race in New England of the racing season. … If you’re a race fan you might even get sick of racing I say because there’s so many divisions.”

On new Thompson Speedway general manager Terry Eames:

“I always thought that Terry was great for motorsports. … He understands the game. I believe that Terry is a super promoter.”

On the future of the New London-Waterford Speedbowl:

“If I was a guessing man, I’m not saying its true, I’m just assuming that it’s probably going to be one of them winters when you just don’t know exactly what is going on.”

On former Speedbowl general manager and operator George Whitney:

“I quickly found that for some reason or another he put up a hard edge against me.”

New London-Waterford Speedbowl SK Modified driver Timmy Jordan also talked much about the state of the shoreline oval.

“Unfortunately you kind of get used to the unexpected when you’re a Speedbowl competitor. I’m happy obviously that the track is still going. It’s kind of that weird situation where no one really knows the facts.”

On new management under track operate Mike Serluca:

“At some point it has to be a business. It can’t be a club. I think Mike is trying to get it back to that.”

Stafford Speedway SK Light Modified driver Alexander Pearl talks about some plans he has for the remainder of the season and his progression this year at Stafford.

“I hadn’t really driven anything like a Modified before and getting used to it was a challenge.”

Former Granite State Pro Series drive Cory Casagrande talked about his planned trip to the PASS Mega Meltdown 200 at Hickory (N.C.) Speedway on Nov. 10.

“It’s just something different, something new to us. And I like trying something different. There’s no pressure.”
