    Man, the “hard luck award” for racing organizations has to go to the VMRS! Between track problems, scheduling conflicts and weather, I think they lost about 1/3 of their season! hopefully today will get rescheduled. It looks like the only reasonably safe bet for racing today is Seekonk.

  2. The VMRS these days is getting absolutely no love. I don’t get it. They’ve had their bad luck but the fields have been fine, they have guys showing up vying for the title and they’re still very credible.
    I’m looking forward to the August 30th race at Stafford and think it could be unique.
    The Northern tier VMRS points leaders are coming down to Stafford with their own rules and tires and as last years results showed non Stafford teams took 8 out of the top 10 spots. This year they’ll face off against the host of new cars Stafford regulars have been racing and it should make for a very interesting night of competition. 30 cars were at the race last year and it’s likely the same number could be expected with many sent home as DNQ’s. I’m hoping they change the tire rule to require a stop but it will be whatever their rules say it is.
    The 25 will be a favorite and perhaps Dowling will be in the 00 so that will be nice to see as well. It’s been a long time. They should really let Tommy Barrett race in the series is he wanted to.
    As usual there will be the usual full paddock of regular divisions racing features only so after the VMRS heats it will be wall to wall features unless a consi is mixed in.

    If I remember right, when NASCAR suspended Tommy Barrett’s license the VMRS made having that license as one of their requirements to compete as well. I think that’s why he can’t run the VMRS.

  4. Fast Eddie,
    Had nothing to do with possessing a NASCAR license. Fairly certain it was around that time that the VMRS instituted a rule that if you were of legal driving age you had to have a driver’s license that was in good standing in the issuing state to compete with the series.

    Thanks for the correction Shawn, I knew it had something to do with a license! So I’m guessing at this point it’s a choice the team made to focus on the TriTrack and/or Open events, which some other teams seem to have done as well.

  6. Fast Eddie says

    Thanks for correcting me Shawn! I knew it had something to do with a license. I’m guessing they opted to attend only open events as some other teams have.

  7. Barrett was going to run the Monadnock race in the Tri Track car he has been running according to MRS post. So it would seem that door is open again which is great, he is always fun to watch and has a knack for coming through the field to be there at the end.
