Cris Michaud, Johnny Morgillo, Getting Punchy, NextGen Chatter, Absorbing Current Events And More On Unmuffled

On Episode 125 of Unmuffled we catch up with Thompson Speedway co-operator, co-owner of the American Canadian Tour, Thunder Road Speedbowl and White Mountain Motorsports Park, Cris Michaud. We also talk with Johnny Morgillo about a great program he’s put together with some very familiar local racers to help revitalize Quarter Midget competition in Meriden. In our wild card chatter segment we take at a little jab and at a new pit reporter for the Whelen Modified Tour, we talk some NextGen car talk and even dip our toe into some current events on the other side of the world..

  1. Great commentary in this forum regarding last weeks CUP race. Combined with the comments made on Unmuffled I know I’ll be making a point to watch the CUP race Sunday. I’ll be looking for a lot of the nuance and detail that has been mentioned over the past week right here so thanks you all for that.

    Interesting comments on anxiety over current events. A pandemic causing millions to die prematurely over the last couple years with economic fall out we’re still experiencing. The peaceful transfer of power challenged over a year ago if successful could have fundamentally changed the way we are governed permanently. After all that this gets singled out as a moment of reflection wondering if there is less of a need to make plans for the next month.
    I certainly would tune out were it an hour and 12 minutes of hand wringing and doom but for a few minutes it’s simply reflective of what we all feel and in a strange way comforting to hear mentioned. For the few of us left from the duck and cover generation we’ve been living with it complete with periodic anxiety spikes like now for a long, long time. Then we tuck it away and move on.

    Part of that is looking forward to the SMART opener tomorrow afternoon with a full racing card available on FloRacing. The Brown Dog Crew will be there with the best active modified driver at Florence Motor Speedway. I’ll be rooting for them as hard as I can hoping that yet another win will lead them to a specific conclusion That being they are on such a roll the only logical conclusion is to take the Pee Dee 60 to the Sizzler to grab the considerable pot of gold on the table for that event.

  2. Ill record and watch later, the cup practice and qualifying tomorrow.
    I find there is much more info gleaned from most all drivers during those sessions. I tend to learn more there.
    Interesting article in RA this morning. Auston Dillon and a host of other drivers give their take on the situation. For the time being, situation will be the same while Nascar works on solution.
    But Dillon’s take is worth the read, if you are interested in this subject.

  3. Dr Robert Neville says

    Under current events, checked on race fuel price today. Yikes, was quoted 790 for vp110 54 gal drum, good till tomorrow. Was 590 in December, so not wanting to hold on to that much fuel for over 6 months, I payed 75 for a pail to use for dyno work to get thru. Better keep caution laps to a minimum this year. I already miss the good old days when pump gas was under 4 a gallon and heating oil was under 5, seems like it was just a couple of days ago.
