    I figured it up yesterday between Kyle Busch, Kyle Larson and Ryan Blaney. Just looked at their points during the playoffs not counting their entry points from the regular season. NASCAR is getting what they want with awarding the winners. KB-296 Points KL-296 Points RB-275 Points

    I think they need to revamp the points a little bit. Kyle Busch made the final four solely on what he did in the regular season, He had a very lackluster playoffs, I think they need to reset the points after the first round.
  3. TSTRS Question

    I think that has a lot to do with the fact I could go take modified, sport mod, stock car and pretty much go to any dirt track and race on Saturday night. With my asphalt car I could only run at the one track because for a long time there in the late 90's and early 2000's none of the asphalt tracks had common rules.
  4. SAS Late Model

    Is this Shane Harris's old car that was number 22 in TSRS. If so its a old Lloyd Alexander car that I believe was a lefthander but had a lot of work done by Ervin at Oval Components. If this is it, it is a real good car.

    I was down there last weekend watching the racing and they were putting on a pretty good show.

    What was reported on twitter is that Menard decided to step away but told the Wood Brothers to put Matty D in the car. The good thing is the alliance between the Wood Brothers and Penske is a lot better alignment than the LFR and Gibbs deal. Now when Bell gets in the car at LFR I wouldn't be surprised if Bell gets better equipment than Matty D ever thought about having in that car. But with this alignment, Matty's driving, sponsorship, team and equipment do not be surprised if you see the 21 car in Victory Lane best chance since Blaney was there.

    Well more is coming out on this and looks like Dippel might be in the clear. He was arrested for having prescription drugs that were not his after someone left their bag in his car. The cop didn't believe he was a racecar driver and that he looked wore out because he had been racing all weekend. Because he was the operator of the vehicle he was arrested. The friend who left his bag in the car confessed that was his bag and he left it there. Dippel passed a random drug test at Bristol and then took a voluntary test right after being arrested and passed. So he should be cleared of all this.

    I hate to admit it but I agree with Tim here. Educating these drivers about the things you would not expect to fail a test and what it is in or could be in so these drivers stay away. Now this is just me speculating they could be doing this already and we just don't know.

    I don't disagree that rules are rules and you can probably look at the workout supplement Bayley was taking and see this stuff, but a diet coffee drink you would probably not expect to have this stuff in it. What I want to know is if they tested Matt D, Denny, Kyle, Kevin, Clint the big names of the sport and they had this come up if the would suspend them as well. I honestly think its who you are in the sport determines if you get suspended or not.

    Matt Borland crew chief for Germain Racing just got popped for basically the same thing. Except his was DMAA in his diet coffee he was drinking. He had it tested to find out what it was exactly. I personally think this is a little ridiculous. Its almost like the Olympics these guys are getting popped for stuff they don't even realize is in what they are taking. Its not an illicit drug are they going to have to start screening everything they put in their body? These guys are not like Tyler Dippel who wasn't even allowed to cross the border into Canada because rumor is it was drug related issue and was pulled over at the border on the NY side trying to cross into Canada.

    Here's what needs to be done, forget about trying to add a dirt crossover. Finish out the rest of the season and then sit back after the last race and revaluate the classes. Then sit back and restructure the classes. Do what you can to get the most cars in a class. This might irritate some people but if they really want to race they will find a way to make their car fit in the rules.

    I think you missed what I was saying, I agree there is an abundance of Sport Mods but I said you have to make it worth their while to switch over from dirt to asphalt. I didn't say anything about "cheaters" or money costs. I just mentioned your going to have to make this purse worth it for them to switch. Bobby got where I was going with this post, why make a bigger purse for a class that might bring some cars when you can reinvest in the classes you already have and try to get more. Also the dirt track fan base is pretty loyal as well. I always see the same people at the different race tracks we travel to.

    I am not going to deny this but look at who the racers were that showed up. The racers that showed up were already racing asphalt at Kyle there was not a whole lot of crossover racers. The changes are a little more than minimal, your going to have to lower ride heights and center of gravity, look at your standard setups on dirt sport mod. Those setups would not work on asphalt. The only way its going to work is purse you have to make them want to do it. If you throw out the same purse as what they can get staying on a dirt track, why would you change it over. In all honesty Tim just think about it if you had a sport mod lets say your based out San Antonio. Your car is setup to run dirt at I-37 and you have been running good there. You also occasionally travel to STS, Texana, CBS. You know that at your local track you win your getting $450, you can travel to the other tracks on an off night and your getting the same. HMP puts on a race for sport mods and they are paying $450 to win as well. Where are you going to go race? Somewhere where you have to change your setup completely up, plus buy tires, or are you going to go somewhere where you know you just have to unload not change a thing and go have fun? That's why I'm saying if they are going to do it they are going to have to make it worth their while to make the changes and spend the money to come race there. I'm not disagreeing with you that the cars are there, there is a lot of them you just have to make it worth their while to do it.
