RaceDayCT Daily Poll: Your Thoughts On Sexual Harassment At Short Tracks?

Earlier this week local short track racing multimedia personality Nicole LaRose revealed through a Facebook video that she had been sexually assaulted on the infield of New Smyrna Speedway last week. It brought to the forefront conversation about the issue of sexual harassment at short tracks. So today’s Daily Poll question is, what are your thoughts on sexual harassment in short track racing? Vote below.

  1. I wonder what Julie Stefanik thinks about this issue. I cannot think of a more highly respected female involved in the sport her entire life.

  2. Dr Robert Neville says

    It’s another issue that needs attention. A number of my business associates view local racetracks as nothing but a breeding grounds for irresponsible behavior. There are too many people that believe having a pit pass is a license for misbehaving. If you fight, get drunk or high, discriminate, harass someone, lie, or steal while at work or in a major retailer, you would be fired and or arrested. So why does someone think any of this behavior is acceptable at a racetrack. It’s not as prevalent in other forms of motorsports. Maybe it’s culture, maybe professional conduct is part of a contract, or maybe it’s that elsewhere more people understand that their rights don’t entitle them to end mine.

  3. You may be making a mistake if you’re conflating the incident at New Smyrna with Stafford.
    The dark, lawless image you paint is unrecognizable. Actually it sounds more like the Speedbowl circa 1980 something.
    You might want to tell your friends to revisit a track. It’s all so civilized now.

  4. Why only at the Speedbowl circa 1980 something? You mean to tell me this behavior never ever happened at any other CT track? Never ever? You would have a hard time convincing me of that. To take this one step further, what evidence do you have it is not still happening and not reported?

    Come on man!

  5. “a breeding grounds for irresponsible behavior.”
    That’s what the gentlemen was talking about not just sexual harassment.
    Come on man! You know the point I was making. I loved the 1980’s Speedbowl but it was for sure rough and tumble and if you were there you should know it as well.. You tell me Earl. If 22 year old Earl had just started dating a girl and he wanted to bring her to the races for the first time would 1980’s Speedowl or 2021 Stafford make a better impression?
    My only point was the racing environment has evolved and dad gum it Earl pardon my French you know it..

  6. Doug wrote, “You might want to tell your friends to revisit a track. It’s all so civilized now.”

    This coming from Doug, a life form of just a few cells, still floating in the post-big bang prehistoric primordial soup. He still insists on referring to women as “chicks”.

  7. Come on Doug, you are comparing apples to jelly donuts. Let’s compare circa 1980 something Speedbowl to circa 1980 something Stafford. You can’t compare the 1980 something to the new millennium, again 🍎 to 🍩. If you went to either track in the 80’s looking for trouble you would find it.

    Please don’t make me call you Doug Biden. Your beginning to remind me of him.

    Come on man.

  8. If I had a time machine that could go back to only two race events I’d go to see myself race in the early 80’s to see if I was as bad as I remember. The second race I would go back to is the Speedbowl sometime around 1985.
    Have it your way Earl. If I offended you with the Speedbowl reference my apologies.
    Doug Biden is fine with me. My man Shotgun Joe is looking pretty snappy with a 60% approval rating. More shots in more arms and more vaccine on the way. If you qualify for a stimulus check when it passes it may help pay your moving expenses out of Connecticut. Ned getting it done as well with a budget surplus, people moving into the state and the 5th highest vaccination rate in the country. Infection rate way down to 2%ish with a couple months until racing season so things are looking good.
    My first shot March 10 and hope you are signed up as well. If not……come on man…….giddy up.

  9. Already got my first shot and the second due on March 11th. Enjoy shotgun while you can cause he won’t be there long. Two years is what I predict, he is just a place holder. His cognitive condition is deteriorating and it’s just a matter of time. I know what it is as I experienced it with my mom, very ugly disease. I feel sorry for him and his loved ones.

  10. Earl,
    What if you lost 15 pounds and someone saw you and then started telling people: “Earl has AIDS. I know what it is, I’ve seen it before. His condition is deteriorating, it’s just a matter of time before he’s gone.”??? Think that would be fair of someone deciding because you lost some weight that you must have a deadly disease?
    Come here with with an actual medical report not your “Dr. Earl” diagnosis of how having a stutter is the first sign of Alzheimer’s. I let a lot of stuff go here with the political chatter because quite honestly, I’m not devoted to either side of the aisle. I think both parties have major issues and the system is broken and blame for that broken system is equally shared by both sides. I don’t have a party affiliation, I don’t want a party affiliation and I can’t stand that so many of the decisions today made by our national leaders are swayed by party politics and not personal desire to make good leadership decision. So please, until you can show me your medical degree, save your QAnon rhetoric for your Parler profile.

  11. Dr Robert Neville says

    Stafford may be the gold standard for compliance with social standards, but you are naive to think all short tracks except for one in Florida are immune from today’s societal issues. I know more than one driver that prefers a little THC in them before racing. I had a couple want to put someone in a car. I asked them what they do, Electrician. Turns out they install mini splits for a number of caregivers, an all cash business, and had a little extra for sponsorship. I’m not against someone having a few gummies or cookies while tailgating or enjoying the races from the spectator side, but not on the competition side, and I’m not a laundry man. I’ve had a kid’s mother slap and kick me, dare me to hit her back all because I got in the way of the kid’s future big time racing career. I never went to the Speedbowl in the 1980’s, I have no point of reference.

  12. It’s interesting how I could not agree less with Earls medical diagnosis but thought nothing of it. It’s common fodder on talk radio. Endless fake diagnosis’ in every radio market, every day all day.
    I don’t agree that decisions are primarily swayed by party politics. They seem more to be swayed by base politics. Liz Cheney garners support for the private vote to ouster her in the House leadership. Publicly the GOP stuck like glue to the last president and their votes reflect it.
    As far as the GOP they have a rabid media that will crucify any person in Congress that steps out of line and can do it in real time just after it occurs.. Hundreds of outlets all with the same basic messaging. Then it filters down to Romney getting verbally assaulted at an airport and state parties censuring those that dare vote against Trump interests. Who wants to hear their name being trashed all over the country on media outlets that the base is devoted to?
    That’s why those Republicans voting for impeachment and conviction in all of Congress are the only Profiles in Courage in my view on either side.
    I can’t speak to the Democrats since I am one.. Clearly there are as many hypocrites with a rabid base unwilling to compromise.. What doesn’t exist and you can correct me on this is a vast commercial media complex singularly devoted to advancing left wing talking points.
    The AM and some FM stations right wing pundits across the dial and nothing on the left near as I can see. If there is let me know who and where I’d like to tune in.

  13. OK Mr. Neville since I have no idea of what these substances are you are talking about that I will assume prevent competitors from being at their best I stand corrected.
    The mom though is pretty garden variety stuff you could find at a Little League game.

    As long as admitted sexist bigots like Doug stay away from the tracks, all should be good.
