  1. Hopeless racer says

    I hope the bowl suspended Bill Anderson for a long time after what he did to Jonathan Puleo. It’s not right to wait on someone and dump the clutch into their driver side door after a heat race.

  2. Puleo got what he deserved cost billy a clip two weeks ago runs him to the fence on sat officials say nothing needs to know u don’t race that way and by the way didn’t hit him in the door

  3. What Anderson did was wrong but he had to do something because the officials are allowing too much rough riding.

  4. Bob Grinex says

    While what happened near the gate was absolutely out of line, stupid, and dangerous! I’m glad no one was hurt, i’m glad Jon is ok. HOWEVER there is a significant number of people who feel zero sympathy for Puleo, due to actions from many years ago, when he was just a kid… Yes, if you could hear the cheers from him getting wrecked, it’s profound… Years back, there was a little go kart series started at waterford, by an extremely arrogant now race official, who unabashedly, and with open bias, officiated in an unfair way, that benefited a young kid with the initials JP… while arrogantly turning away the other young competitors. I personally know of “6” families that decided not to support that series because of the bias, and the series founder’s arrogance, and that young boy’s father who clearly knew what was happening was wrong, but stayed SILENT… Ever since that particular official, became an official(thankfully has moved on), the officiating at waterford has been severely flawed, and now have someone making calls, that should be back on his quad, barking orders to the wrecker crew, That’s his wheel house… You cannot have a race director that socializes with competitors, having beers in the parking lot after races, being buddy buddy with certain teams, that creates unknowingly “Favorites”, it started about 17 years ago, and has been a problem there ever since, no matter who is occupying the race director position. There are drivers who cause an incident, even if not intentional, and no call will be made, and when the race director is buddy buddy with some teams, that’s a problem….
