  1. So as I understand it the switch to different cars is a switch in programming that requires a change in driving style. Tour modifieds more powerful, use up cyber rubber faster, lose handles and are less forgiving. Street Stocks loosy goosy and under powered so who knows how that will work out.
    Good show last night. 500 plus viewing it and good enthusiasm in the real time comments. Calls for an experienced sim racer Ronnie Williams to appear. Maybe he’s afraid to compete in an even competition where pure driver ability wins races. Glad they are continuing it. Nice to see Cole running up front. Christopher and Hodgdon no accident they continue to perform. There’s an art to it they say every bit as complex as the real thing and they appear to have gotten the hang of it.
    Ryan Fearn has to be disappointed with his experience in the medium so far. Now if he can break out with a win in the Streets or Late Models that would definitely be evidence that the cyber divisions are every bit as different as the real thing.

    Believe me Doug, there is a BIG difference in the cyber divisions….sit back and enjoy this Friday, I think you will see a different crop of drivers rising to the top.

  3. Being grateful for what we have in this environment where we are reminded every day for what we are losing is not in favor at this point in time. Nonetheless I did see something that reminded me to be grateful about a couple of the people critical to local racing who may be some of the best in the entire history of regional short track racing. I’ve gleaned it from the latest Bottom Shot Podcast.
    Paul Arute- mom and dad are the ultimate deciders but for whatever reason Paul Arute has emerged as the face of management at the track. Not a fan of the rampant nepotism of family businesses however in this case I can’t imagine anyone doing a better job then Paul. From the Podcasts to the roll out of sim racing involving Stafford drivers to fill a void Paul has been the point of the spear reminding fans and competitors that racing is alive and well albeit delayed. In the latest podcast Paul summed it up nicely putting this crises in the context of historical challenges the track has had over time. Be patient, roll with the punches and racing will resume hopefully sooner but in any case eventually. He delivers the message in a confident, mild mannered way completely devoid of pretension and self serving empty promises. No details, no promises, no problem. Just we’re here, we’re controlling what we can, staying positive and will be ready when the time is right.
    Scott Tapley-brought up in a low buck racing family, college educated, vast experience and success on race teams, fabrication skills, track management and now race direction. If you sat down and made a list of what the ideal race director qualities would be before this guy came along they wouldn’t be as comprehensive as what Scott Tapley has actually delivered.
    Who does that. Gets in a car, drives 16 hours from Maine to Riverhead via Stafford Speedway and back every weekend to be the bad guy enforcing rules. Doing it quietly and pulling it off with virtually universal respect.
    Mr. Tapley is completely devoid of pretense sighting on multiple occasions his intelligent and successful wife for making his commitment to racing possible from a financial and time commitment standpoint. Being notoriously hard and self critical of his own decisions and studies how to anticipate problems and make better calls as he spends endless hours in his car.
    Ok I know I went overboard. Maybe I’m all wet. After all what can a fan know just by reading, seeing and digesting everything available with the experience of having raced at the track decades ago. Still I’m confident I’m headed in the right direction.
    There have been bigger crowds in better times. However I can’t recall more capable people in management at the track and not just the two I’ve mentioned. Include Ma and Pa Arute, Tom Fox, Scott Running as well with apologies to all the other top notch people that are less public but equally important.
    Paul says they will be spending the down time painting the track and I’m viewing that as symbolic of an optimism that racing will resume when the time is right with the track looking spiffy and ready for top notch competition with loaded fields.
