The only thing I will say is that right where he hit you Chris there is a large bump. But I have never seen a car make a right turn like that one did. Something funny about that.

sure the 57 got bumped going INTO the corner but if you watch closely the 66 backed way off and then the 57 gets back into the gas in the middle of the corner... tape dont lie, great job on the clips by captain video each and every week gotta thank him for that!!

not taking sides but timmy shot the 57 going in the corner good enuf to get him side ways.and carry the momentum into the 81. What do u expect him to do lock up the brakes thairs no whare to go its a lil somin called short track racing it wasent intenshinal.

07-29-2008, 11:17 PM
Yeah I think Rog nailed it. The 57 clearly gets back on the gas, and apparently stopped turning?. Timmy gave him a bump going in, but certainly no foul there. It wouldn't have taken much of a sacrifice for the 57 to avoid the 81.

after the 81 got ahead of 57, the 57 then chopped down right in front of the 66 causing a slight bump. but mid corner the 57 seemed to mat the gas full boar and plowed th 81. the 66 was 1/2 a length back at the time the 57 monter trucked 81. i say the 66 is at no fault at all.

I think the momentum from the 66 hittin the 57 into the 81 gettin him sideways ends when you hit him... it doesnt continue through the corner...

Coming from the back to 4th in a few laps in that charger field is no impossible feat, just take notes this week when time trials are being completed of all the cars he passed in those short laps and maybe you will find the reason that it happened. maybe the 57 couldnt do the same because his toe might have been knocked in or out from the wreck.

Dont mind the bumping and getting sideways lil short track racing but was just curious about the way he tried to use me as a roll over ramp.

07-30-2008, 08:01 PM
you should know why he used you like that maby if u wheret bangin off him and sendin it threw the bumps underneath him he wouldent have did that but he obusly he retaleated for somein thairs an out side 4 a reson use it insted of drivin threw him in the bumps soo just letin you know maby thats why he did ran over the top of you...

So if someone touches a bumper or drives through the bumps and passes someone that gives them the right to torpedo their cars at another car?

81 passed 57 both on outside and inside, and when a car starts running a line that takes up both grooves and you know you got a better car, you need to start racin like its a short track.. only 20 laps. I remember races between the 17x and 36 that were very similar a few years back

07-30-2008, 09:24 PM
it takes two to tangle just like the 17 and the 36 in that race i saw on the longislandjam i seen both drivers not respecting each other and its ended up not having the finish you should had. you are clearly the fastest car and this is your year for the big picture i think all the classes need a little more give and take and some respect

07-30-2008, 10:57 PM
i dont think anyone in any division after spending thousands,on there car
wakes up sat,morning and says im going to trash someone tonight, be real,its short track racing and **** happens,every one races because thats what they want to do,theres no big paycheck at riverhead!!!!there are many drivers & crews with big egos!! but were all there for the same reason, the sport!! and thats all it is !! all the fighting yelling, screaming, calling names,going crazy,its all really not worth it,what happins on the race track should stay on the track,think of the fans! no fans no racing!! car count is already low in all divisions,lifes to short to be so angry at others for typical short track (full contact) racing!!!
step back, take a breath, & relax & just go with it!!!!!

...unless you consider the possibility that 57 got on the gas a bit too hard to get away from being bumped by the 66 once more. Just a theory, but one that should be considered. It's just a thought that occurred to me after watching the video 3 or 4 times...

07-31-2008, 01:11 AM
We'll if he did, it was un-nessasary since i was already back off him a-ways:wave:

Agreed. But, consider the possibility he didn't know that. That's all I'm saying.

07-31-2008, 08:41 AM
timmy if i was you i would just blame it on your spotter.

07-31-2008, 09:41 AM
but mid corner the 57 seemed to mat the gas full boar and plowed th 81. the 66 was 1/2 a length back at the time the 57 monter trucked 81.

Couldn't have said better myself!

To the people that say "it's short track racing and it's full contact". YOU think DUMPING is racing??? :help: THIS now has happened 2 WEEKS IN A ROW with the 57 turning the 81. Nobody should mind short track racing, bumpin and grinding BUT TO TURN SOMEONE, that aint racing.:mad::mad:

07-31-2008, 10:22 AM
the tape doesn't lie....the 57 drove thru and almost over the 81....I didn't see anybody sending it thru the bumps though

07-31-2008, 10:49 AM
57 has done the same dirty move two races in a row... Hitting a car getting him sideways does not give you the right to punch the gas and drive through him. let the man correct the car and allow the race to continue..This isn't the smash to pass demo. Racing like this gives Riverhead a bad name

07-31-2008, 11:16 AM
ur rite good point

07-31-2008, 11:42 AM
you also have to consider in the vid that the 57 chopped his car down in bewtween the 81 and 66 just befor corner entry. one can only hit the break so fast by a move the 57 would have done.you can see there was just enough room for him to fit in between them 2. if the 57 had stayed high like i think he shouldof none of this would have happend. i know tim does not like to race like that as you see how much he backed off. i still 66 should be left out of the picture.
