    This weather is really a drag!! Sat. looks good. I guess Monadnock or Lebanon Valley.

  2. So tedious looking at the weather report daily and seeing rain almost every day. The 2018 and 2019 seasons almost uninterrupted by rain at Stafford anyway and last year one rain out after the season got going with a drought in full swing. This year the opposite of that.
    Good for lawns, gardens, reservoirs, tire conservation and racing budgets. Bad for morale.

  3. Rain rain go away, we would like to race some day.

  4. This is a huge break for me. I had no chance of going Friday, but Jul 30 is a GREEN LIGHT

  5. That’s a big week with the Tri Track at Star the week before…..

  6. Guy’s on Suspension keep getting pushed back too. Next completed Feature,, When ever that will be is anyone’s guess… Could it be Bad Karma from Suspension’s….

  7. Hockey season is officially over. Congrats to the Lightening I guess its the lesser of two wrongs. Tampa Bay is the new title town of America. I was planning on coming out of retirement for this race at Stafford. I guess it will have to wait. Seekonk has a thrill show in place of their weekly series which is a no go. No SKs at Waterford. Lebanon Valley has two Modified and Pro Stock races Saturday. The weather doesnt look too bad either. I havent been there since 2019. Really thinking about it but that two hour drive home is rough and I would have to miss a local cook out too.

  8. Fast Eddie says

    I’ve always said we have 3 seasons that happen at will for undetermined times; winter, rain, & august. Righr now we sure could use a lot less rain and more August!!

    So Thompson cancels the sk’s because of the tire shortage and gets rained out anyway. Waterford gets rained out last Saturday, and this Saturday has no sk’s or late models assuming because of the tire shortage. Stafford rained out two weeks in a row. All these rainouts. So who’s hoarding all the tires?

  10. csg Nothing wrong with driving up to the valley of speed Saturday to watch double features ( keep your eye on Chase Dowling #9 ) As far as the cookout go’s , LV offers a good menu of reasonable priced food to make that 2hr ride home seem worthy .

  11. Uconnjohn says

    I didn’t know about the double modified and pro stock features. I guess it’s Lebanon Valley to hopefully break the rain out streak. I always try to go there 3-4 times a year. If it wasn’t an almost 2 hour drive I would go a lot more than that!!

  12. You cant go wrong with Lebanon Valley. Everything is reasonably priced and they run the show off efficiently. Best part is they typically run the mods somewhere in the middle of the show. So if it is running late you can leave early having not missed the main event. It is the only track I make sure I dont eat before I go there. I only get there once or twice a year. I end up overeating wanting to try everything on the menu. I say I wont do it next time but a year later it happens again.
