  1. Sharpie Fan says

    Always go with Santos. He won me the pool in the grandstands last fall.

  2. I’m thinking it will an “It’s about time he won” driver.

  3. knuckles mahoney says

    I picked Silk.

  4. Bobby, Bobby, Bobby, SHOWS UP & WINS… R. D. CONN. Reader’s TOP 5 Picks Also be sure to INCLUDE DARK HORSE WINNER :::::: >>>> 1. Santos 2. Silk 3. Dowling 4. Coby 5. J. Bonn. and the DARK Horse Winner >>>>> is Rameau…. Was fast until tangling with J. Bonn and ending up in the backstretch CONCRETE>>>>> Don’t be SHY >>>> List your OWN TOP 5 PICKS>>>> Have some fun .. We will see WHO Had the BEST PICKS !!! Doug can keep SCORE cuz He Excels at Numbers and such if he would be so kind …..? OK have at it MEN & Ladies >>>>><<<<>>now

  5. When is the rain date? Forecast keeps getting worse for 7/17.

  6. I’m guessing the pick of Santos to win would be made on a couple things. His success with Sapienza in the two Muskets and the Northeast Classic win at NHMS in April that was the Tinio’s first race back I believe after taking the break.
    It seems like a tall order for the 44. The Northeast Classic only had 11 cars and no 10, 51, 85 and this year apparently the 07 to content with. If he can pull it off after that embarrassing performance in the SRX series, that didn’t seem embarrassing at the time but now does after Fenhaus’s success, it will surely be a booster shot to his mystique for all you Northeast Santos fans.
    It’s just too hard picking these races in my view. I will say that the cream will rise to the top meaning it will be Coby or Bonsignor because they are the best teams in every respect with the Stuart team just a tick off on the big track.. Emerling’s the guy to watch to see if he can once again outperform and prove this year is no fluke.

  7. Suitcase, I have like 8 contenders, and I can’t get down to only 5.

    Doug sucks with numbers, has many around here fooled. He doesn’t even know that Stafford is EAST of Enfield.

  8. I am sure Earl, Fast EDDIE, Rob, Bobf, Doug, Goodfella, Liz, Atomic Punk, Reg, Knuckles, Reality, Ken, and many more…..can come up with a TOP 5 and Dark Horse Winner for the ” Magic Mile” …After the Sun comes out again …, Maybe the Spirit’s of R.D. Conn will also rise up ..?

  9. Fast Eddie says

    Suitcase, challenge accepted! Top 5: Santos, Silk, McKennedy, Swanson, & Coby. 2 darkhorse picks: Nocella & Emerling.

    THE DOUG DIRECTION ERROR COUNTER

    STARRING DAREALGOODFELLA

    HOW MANY TIMES WILL DAREALGOODFELLA MENTION IT????????

    DOUG’S MISSTATEMENT
    Doug says
    July 10, 2021 at 7:50 pm
    It was a good call for Stafford. Enfield is two towns east of Stafford and we get the weather first.

    Enfield is WEST of Stafford.

    DAREALGOODFELLA REFERENCE NUMBER TWO
    darealgoodfella says
    July 11, 2021 at 8:28 pm
    Yeah, WeldingWonders needs to get a map for Doug and show him that Enfield is WEST of Stafford.

    DAREALGOODFELLA REFERENCE NUMBER 3
    darealgoodfella says
    July 12, 2021 at 8:38 am
    Hey Earl, all indications are that WeldingWonders is preparing an even bigger post. Whenever Doug’s posts slow down a bit it’s because WeldingWonders is working on a galactic post. Wait for for it…
    Hey, did the Earth flip over and East is now West, and West is now East?

    DAREALGOODFELLA REFERENCE NUMBER 4

    ORIGINAL ERROR BY DOUG…………….JULY 10, 2021

    MENTIONS BY DAREALGOODFELLA SINCE JULY 10, 2021……….4

  11. Saturday I was putting hour meters on the two zone pumps for the boiler that supplies heat to two apartments. Being older I had the shaky hands deal going at times and reflected on how much more frustrating tasks are now well past my prime. Being especially aware of that double checking my work for errors. Nonetheless come winter it will all be worth it as I will have a tool to gauge relative heating oil consumption by unit.
    I don’t know why my errors are so important to you Darealgoodfella but you sure do seem to enjoy harping on them. I have more good news for you. As I get older there will be more similar obvious errors and they will appear more frequently. Unlike installing hour meters I won’t always be double checking my entries for errors. It’s not that important and I kind of get a chuckle out or them myself. Between errors I’ll probably make some good observations that don’t involve demeaning people and integrating vulgar emoji’s in comments in the process and that will be good enough for me anyway.
    I was reading Jake’s write up for the Late Model race at Thunder Road that I will be viewing on FloRacing come Thursday. It was yet another terrific capsule of a track and now I have Ryan Kuhn to watch along with Ryan Preece.
    I don’t do well at these predictions but out of respect for the traveling mans enthusiasm and great commentary I will fall in line and do my bit as well as keep track of the results should people decide to try their hand.

    Suitcase Jake: Santos, Silk, Dowling, Coby, J. Bonn………Darkhorse-Rameau
    Fast Eddie: Santos, Silk, McKennedy, Swanson, & Coby. 2 darkhorse picks: Nocella & Emerling
    Doug: J Bonsignor, Coby, Emerling, Santos, Cipriano………….Darkhorse-Chick Stockwell

  12. Am I slacking?

    Doug is an idiot.

  13. Doug, stop playing the old age victim card… age is not your problem causing all the errors.

    Like Crazy in NY said, who the hell are you to judge everyone else?

    So you make frequent and massive errors, all while looking like a passive aggressive narcissist. And I enjoy shredding you for it.

    Tell WeldingWonders to remind me often if I slack off. And tell WeldingWonders I thank him for giving you yet even more publicity and exposure by replaying my posts.

    👋

  14. Here’s my Top 5: Preece, Santos, Swanson, Emerling, Nocella

    And here are my Dark Horse picks: Silk, JBon, Kobe, McKennedy, Sapienza

    The Nocella and Emerling cars have been showing up loaded for bear. Hard to bet against Santos, but I have my doubts about the 44 team being so very part-time. Hopefully Preece will no longer be snake-bit, he’s had some crazy bizarre bad luck. The ❸ is well past due. Doubt the McKennedy car will last, he deserves too much better. The Stuart car just hasn’t been impressive, too bad for Silk. Just added Sapienza… clearly has the cars, all he needs to do is follow Santos around and do the last lap thing.

    As always, it is highly dependent on idiocy and attrition.

  15. Santos, Silk, J Bon, McKennedy, Coby

    Dark horse – McLaughlin

  16. WeldingWonders says

    “ hate me because I’m beautiful and smarter than you.
    “And just a reminder, I was right, again.”
    “See, I was right. Even Earl can finally get it.”
    “wmass01013, you were correct when you addressed me as “genius”.
    “Hey Doug, I was right again.”

  18. Doug, you’re an idiot!!!!

    There, made 400!!!!

    DING!!!! 🛎 DING!!!! 🛎 DING!!!! 🛎 DING!!!! 🛎 DING!!!! 🛎 DING!!!! 🛎

    Thanks for the publicity, you’re giving it to yourself. I really can slack off a bit with all your help. Oh, I long for days of yore.

  19. How come the 01 was not on the list?

  20. Tough challenge. It’s nh. You have to avoid being caught up in stupid crap.
    As much as I think he could do it, Sam In the 06 will become overly aggressive at some point, and take himself out of contention. The problem is, I dont know who he will take out.
    If there is a late race caution, I could go with preece, but if there isn’t, he just seems to burn his stuff out and fades. Love the guy, but that’s the mo. He is not in my top 5 sorry to say.
    Hard not to go with santos here, but heard Doug loud and clear about not running as much. That Needs to be considered.
    So, I’m gonna roll the blind dice here, barring someone not getting caught up in someone else’s crap.
    Not a fan, but it’s coby.
    Followed by santos, silk, bonsignore, and lutz (emerling has bad luck and gets caught up in crap I think)
    Dark horse? Wow. I’m thinking Williams. Really wanted to pick sap as my dark horse, as big chip on shoulder, would love to prove something after all his controversy, but having to pick between the two, gotta go with Williams. Breaks my heart that ole blue is not in my picture.
    Anyways, those are my thoughts. Thanks to all who played.
    Doug, it would be really cool if u could crunch the numbers after this to see who is closest. I know this guy appreciates the number crunching and statistics you supply. Thanks.

  21. getserious says

    OK, I’ll jump in.
    Preece has to win a race this year, and I’ll pick him for this one.
    Preece, Coby, J Bon, Goodale, and how about Woody for top five?

  22. getserious says
  23. Thanks to Suitcase Jake and his infectious enthusiasm for suggesting this which I believe is a first as far as a structured competition with a respectable number of participants. 7 so far and hopefully more to come.
    If it is a competition then it seems only right to have a bragging rights trophy. The only way to do that is to have a means of determining a winner. My suggestion would look something like this.

    1 point to whomever picks the winner

    1 point to whomever has the highest number of top 5 finishers correct in any order.

    1 point to whomever picks the dark horse winner. Only those with one dark horse choice to be considered.

    First tie breaker- person with the lowest driver in the NWMT 2021 points PROR to the race in the highest top 5 position

    Second tie breaker-person with the second lowest driver in the NWMT 2021 points PRIOR to the race in the highest top 5 position.

  24. What Bobf said… it’s Loudon and that presents a very different set of hazards. As crazy as it sounds, the 01 has had its best race result at Loudon, and the track has mercilessly humbled many great drivers. But as Bobf said, crap happens and then gets sprayed and splashed at others. As big as this track is, it is so very hard to stay out of the trouble of others. Idiocy leaves a wide and long wake. Unlike a bullring where idiocy happens in a fraction of a blink of an eye, idiocy goes in slow motion at Loudon.

    There are no numbers to crunch for Doug. It requires basic intelligence, such that a person knows east from west, and west from east. There is a technique, but it is far out of the reach of Doug. Doug is an idiot and will just make 💩 up, and declare it is right because of apparent profound passive aggressive narcissism. And people willingly followed Hitler, Mussolini, and other dick-taters. I’ll continue to do what I can to protect you from Doug and his other screen names.

    Anyways, it looks like Mother Nature is going to be in total control at Loudon. Anybody know the rain contingency plans? One year, long ago, I had to drive up more than once before the race happened.

  25. Santos, Emerling, Bonsignore, Silk + Coby.

  26. Doug
    I like it. I think This is a friendly , well I’ll call it “best guess” scenario and not a competition, among us race day ct fans. Another fun reason to watch I think. I like that you set the tie breaker rules, right out front, to plan for those contingencies as well.
    I’m in.
    I hope more of us jump in as well.
    Hey Shawn, I bet a bunch of us might be interested in what your picks might be as well!
    Thanks Doug. Hope this don’t take too long for you to do when this is over and done!
    And might I add, what a difference a year makes, but be careful. This still isn’t over. I think I saw 1 mask on a young lady at seekonk. It appeared to be business as usual from my perspective. So stay as safe as you reasonably can everyone!

  27. Fast Eddie says

    Fun suggestion by Jake, and great that Doug set up some ground rules for it! However, given that this info is out after my picks were made, I’m hoping I can get a Mulligan and update my Darkhorse pick to just one, Nocella, in order to make me eligible for Darkhorse points.

  28. This is Great Fun>>>> Don’t Forget your “Dark Horse Pick to Win ” you have plenty of ‘” Time ” to add it to your TOP : 5 … This Kinda Cool,, Maybe WE can do this TOP 5 deal on Every NHIS Race and Also pick the Thompson 300 the same way would be Great Fun..?????. Still have my fingers crossed that the Tire Shortage is over by the Time that HISTORIC RACE is due on schedule …?????

  29. This is Jake’s idea so he’s the honorary commissioner as far as I’m concerned. My vote would be to change anything you like any time you like right up to a reasonable time before the race for your pick to clear moderation and be published.

    Those three potential outcomes have galactically different statistical possibilities, but Doug gave them equal weighting. Only an idiot would do that. Everyone that was smart enough to know the direction a location was from his house would know that.

    This is too obvious… the handful of favored cars have equal weighting as a dark horse pick??????

    😝😝😝😝🤪🤪🤪🤣🤣🤪😝😝😝🤣🤪🤣🤣🤪🤪🤪😝😝😝🧭🧭

    Stupid is as stupid does.

  31. My opinion is once you submit your top 5 including the 1, and only 1 dark horse, those picks are locked in. Never mind changing anything.

    This is Jake’s deal so if anything he should be calling the shots.

    IMHO

  32. I second on jake being commissioner, as suggested. All in the name of good fun I say!
    And while it was bad on me that I did not realize that Williams would be in the tomaino car, I’ll sticking with it. That’s my definition of a really dark horse!!!

  33. I would suggest this : 3 Points – Winner 1 Point – Top 5 2 Points – Dark Horse Winner
    if that sounds fair ….

  34. We had a fantasy modified series on the old modified series scene website or maybe it was the chrome horn website. Perhaps it was a group from those sites who ran it I dont recall. Anyway It was a lot of fun kept me more interested in the tour back then. We had pole winner then top 5 finish. I think I was fortunate enough to win or come in second one year. I think there was nominal entry fee like 10 or 20 bucks for the year that was divided up for the top 3 finishers. Be much easier to administer now with Paypal and venmo.

    my picks
    pole Preece
    1 Santos
    2 Preece
    3 Coby
    4 J Bon
    5 Silk
    darkhorse mother nature

  35. Boy we really like Santos. He runs a handful of mod races and 41 percent of us have him winning this weekend. Any chance we can ever get him back full time running the modified around NE? That would be nice.

  36. Fast Eddie says

    Shawn, I know you’re the impartial web master, but I think you should be in on this too, along with Denise Dupont and Fran Lawler. Whoever wins gets bragging rights and congrats until the next WMT race!

  37. Liz Cherokee says

    After I have a few Mint Juleps in the parking lot, I’m hoping for great weather and a great finish for Melissa! Go Girl Go!

  38. Fast Eddie;
    I dangled that carrot. But, I have to respect anybody being “in “or not in. But Eddie, food for thought. I kinda think this is like shooting fish in a barrel for the top 5 finishers barring a “big one” at nh.
    But…….seekonk aug 24th, top 5 other than Matt?
    Now we would be getting serious…..IMO

  39. We may have to move this Picks Talk to J Bonn . Story.. This thread is disappearing …

  40. Liz, look me up… I’ll be with the group that has a couple handles of bourbon flowing, a couple coolers of fine delectables which you are welcome 🤗 to partake. We’ll be back at the edge of the lot.

  41. Fast Eddie says

    Bob agree with you. I figure in or out on the picks, it will still be fun to see how it works out. I don’t know about your top five theory. Too many times I’ve seen the top 5 on the back stretch looking very different at the finish line. And yes, I’m in for doing picks on a race-by-race basis.
