"I hate it that he spun.  I just wanted to rattle his cage, cuz he was holdin' me up, but I did what I had to do."

Translation: I wasn't fast enough to cleanly pass the guy in front of me, so I shoved him out of the way....

Off Topic Discussion / Garage Floor Epoxy Coatings
« on: September 05, 2018, 11:34:06 AM »
I'm looking into having my garage floor professionally coated with an epoxy finish. I initially applied a coating about 16-18 years ago, myself, and it's no longer in good shape. Am in the process of getting estimates. Anybody recommend an installer and/or good brand of epoxy paint?

I agree. Have a car on display and free admission coupons to a local race track. People LOVE free shizzle. That's why they go to Chevy Court. Keep running footage of the 100 plus years of racing history that was wiped out.

Then come to the International Motor Racing Research Center right here in Watkins Glen, NY, and experience auto racing as it should be. An entrepreneur should buy land near WGI and build a 3/4 mile dirt track to hold events at like Eldora does. All the amenities they could ever want or need and camping out the wazoo. Not to mention two dirt tracks within an hour of the facility that could hold satellite shows. Just my opinion.

Good idea! Pardon my ignorance, but didn't Glen Donnelly have some sort of motorsports venue planned/partially constructed "just down the road" from the State Fairgrounds?  If so, whatever happened to it?

You wanna do something about it - VOTE! Not going to the Fair or anything on the Fairgrounds isn't a big enough eff you, IMO.


It's quite obvious, as if it already wasn't in the past, that the liberals simply don't give a hoot about ANY kind of motorsports, but will bend over backwards for the "stick and ball" crowd. It's time they understood that motorsports enthusiasts are taxpayers, too.

And for that matter, many of us are "sportsmen", too (a little pun intended), so they can take the SAFE act, and do "you know what" with it....

I must be in deep trouble, father was a highly decorated, WWII combat veteran, and I have a feeling that he used the other "n-word" a few times, during that period of time....before I was born, of course.

It's kinda like working for a living and giving your hard earned money via taxes to people who don't want to work and don't deserve it.

You got THAT right!!!

The full Super Stock race is already on YouTube. Why pay to go when someone sits in the grandstands and gives it away for free...

Because "watching" it on YouTube just isn't the same as being there. Secondly, when watching a "broadcast", ANY broadcast, you're limited to watching only what the cameraman is zeroing in on. For example, he's focused on the leader, who's diving into turn 1, while some sort of "mash-up" is unfolding on the front straight. You, being there, and scanning the entire track, won't miss the front straight action....

I don't know whether to post this here or in the racing section, but to be safe, I'll do it here. IT'S ABOUT "PC" GONE HAYWIRE...

It was just published, this morning, in the Rochester, NY 'D&C' newspaper's sports section, that the drug company 'Lilly', was pulling it's logos and sponsorship from driver Connor Daly's Infinity series car, in the Road America race. Why, you ask??

Because 30 YEARS AGO, long before Connor was even born, his father, well known racer Derek Daly, made some "racially insensitive" remarks during a radio interview. WHAT???

Have we become so overly sensitive, that absolutely anything and everything we say, over the course of our entire lives, gets stored away, ready to be dragged up at a moment's notice, to be thrown in our faces? Does this mean that people are no longer allowed to make a mistake, but learn from it? Does this mean that if my grandfather (who died before I was born, by the way), 100 years ago, called somebody a "lazy, no good, thief", that A) someone TODAY can find it offensive; and B) worse yet, use it against ME?? If so, I think we, as a society, are in BIG trouble!!

New sign is up, thanks Chris Vogler

I was talking to someone today, who lives in Sodus and works in Webster, hence he travels by the track every day.....and he's a race fan too. While he's aware of the new signage, he also heard a rumor that Mason Farms bought the track, and it truly is going to become "Apple Valley"....for real.

Anybody else heard this?

These are rookie guys, so they may very well be "over-jetted" and cleaning the carburetor out so as not to burp on the track when they try to get up to speed.

Don't you guys mean "clearing the spark plugs"? The carbs don't "load up" at low speeds....

Me, too, until MTJ hit the debris or had something fly off his car with two to go in the inner loop. I couldn't figure out which one I wanted to win worse - Bill's kid or my current NASCAR driver.

I agree!

It's traceable in the blood for a few weeks.  Doesn't mean he was high at the track.

Doesn't mean he wasn't, either....

Been like that's a list of *bad* words. Since at least 2010 we've tried to keep people from using foul language and inflammatory words. Of course, if someone wants to get by it, they do.  :P

I understand what you're saying, and am pretty much aware of this. However, there's a big difference between the 5 letter word, beginning the letter "s", that also means dumb, and the 4 letter word, also beginning with the letter "s", which is a slang term for human waste material. I guess what I'm getting at, is the forum censor altered my post, thinking I was trying to say something that I actually wasn't.....
