Snowball derby


Recommended Posts

The Snowball Derby did away with live pits stops and it appears that there will be less cars entering.   The number that qualified and the current entry number are identical now.  A there are usually a few less than the number that pre entered.   It is difficult to say if this helped or hurt things.  It does take an element out of the race that everyone enjoys.   There may have been less entries if they did not do away with it, who knows, but thought that it was interesting that there were not more cars entered.   I like the live pit stops but would not like having to pay for them.  LOL  But you do see many teams use their own guys.  Ty Majeski would probably have at least two wins without live stops.

The point is, the number up until this point are slightly higher than last year and a large amount less than 2017 .    On Facebook, they all blamed the live pit stops for not coming last year.   Not a lot of difference so far and way behind 2017.  What I am saying is, there is lots of racing on Facebook that never happens.   They are all fast on Facebook.  For only a couple more cars, i would rather see the live pit stops.   Now if it were to get the car count back in the upper 60's, I can understand not having them.

Eventful first night of racing.  The top 2 trucks got dq'd for motors and the 3rd place guy too much left side.   Awesome man, I wonder how many didnt get caught because they were not up front?  I'll bet they were not the only two motor cheaters. 

There is also rumors from other teams of tire prep. They took samples and sent to be tested by a 3rd party lab.

It looks like about 10 more Super Late Models than last year, but I think this is the best field ever.   The last chance race is an all star race.  

Whats up with these guys doing these slide jobs and expecting someone to lift?    Bickle expected the kid to lift but he didnt.   I dont think I would have lifted either.

That deal with Bickle and Hocevar was identical to two guys earlier this year at Five Flags Speedway in the very same spot.   At some point, enough is enough and when they come across your nose, you just dont lift.   That is what the fans love to watch,  the drama of metal crunching and tempers flaring.
