  1. I missed the 52 getting into the wall but heard it. Sounded like a really hard hit. Hopefully they can get the car back together for Seekonk in a couple weeks. The thing looked junked. I thought it was Dave Darling but it says Derek Griffith on race monitor. Did Griffith buy Darlings car did he run a backup? I only saw one Bristol Toyota 52 out there. Nice to see the 12g get to the lead by lap 50 all but ending the race for the win and allowing this cold patron an early exit.

  2. self correction Derek Ramstrom was in the 52 Dave Darling car not griffith. Too many Dereks i get confused when I am tired and cold

  3. csg,,, that Chassis is going to the Scrapyard, Bent beyond repair , Super Hard Hit ,,, Horrible hit into the Concrete … Strip off anything still good and Ramstrom will be delivering a New Chassis to replace that one plus any thing else that was junked , The decision to borrow Darling Car will cost Ramstrom a bundle plus fixing His own wrecked car , Wow that’s gotta really hurt the wallet…

  4. Thanks Suitcase. Many of us in the grandstand thought it was Dave Darling. Then when I checked to see who won when I got home I noticed it said Ramstrom. Yeah. that is going to be an expensive rental car bet he wished he paid for the optional additional insurance I am hoping Darling has another car or can get something for Seekonk in a couple weeks. Dave is pretty good at defending the home turf for the locals against the PASS outsiders there. Nice field of Pro Stocks last night.
