Pat Collins your not wrong. Your right it is the 77 dwarf, the guys winning don't make much contact if any at all. This isn't to attack the 77 dwarf. It now that your aware of what people are seeing you should just make sure not to hit anyone! I have seen the last couple races that contact has been made before the green flag drops when the cars are all bunched up.

I don't think the 77 needs to be beat up anymore. It doesn't sound like he has any interest in hearing what people are saying. At the same time I watched one video he referred to of the heat race. It looks like he drove way too hard into the corner and ended up nailing the 13 and sending him into the wall. 77 should be happy it wasn't worse for the 13 than it was. I'm sure the 13 driver was pissed as he should be. Hopefully the officials are reading this and will at least take a look to see if they feel a talk with 77 is warranted. I think enough has been said tho, let it go gentleman.

I am not calling you there obviously is no point. I haven't seen any videos I have been to the last few races and a couple at the beginning of the year. It was your car not someone else. You have multiple people reaching out to the officials saying you're hitting other cars outside of what I would consider normal racing. Again I just watch the races I've never actually raced so maybe I'm wrong. I have consistently seen you hit other cars, period. If you choose to ignore what people are saying and keep driving like this I hope the officials do something about it. Other drivers win races without driving like you do.

Patt Collins, Jeff Hunt, if you watch the many videos out there, you'll see I didn't make contact with anyone before the green. I did make unintentional contact in the heat race and I have reached out to that driver. There were 4 white trucks at last race, perhaps you are confusing my truck with someone else's? I try to drive with respect and clean. I'll be happy to discuss your thoughts further you can call me during the day. Here is my shop number 760-622-5150. Let's discuss this offline.

You know its interesting. I don't want to see the 77 get beat up on this forum but I agree that somebody should talk to him. I have heard him be interviewed before the races and I think hes got more confidence than skill. 77 beats on cars in his way, I feel bad for the guys that he hits. If you watch the guys that are winning all the time you will see that they never even touch another car. I am sure that everyone is gonna say rubbin is racin but he doesnt rub, he goes way beyond rubbing.

Hello all - as the volunteer corner #1 official & the driver of the #3 in the Dwarf division. Last Saturdays race we were very short handed & had radio communication issues all night. We all did are best in the safest way for all to enjoy the event. Sorry & i do totally understand the frustration on all sides that night also. The dwarf division is very very competitive with a lot of different skill leveled drivers that all race with a passion. All comments are taken & i do my best every racing night to make sure it is a good FUN event. If any one needs to vent,comment or has an issue- seek me out, I will do the best i can to assist so we all can enjoy & have fun watching & racing. Thanks & see you all at the races

Jeff I agree and your right. But he is not just bumping he's ramming. I'm not a racer I'm just a fan so I may not know what I'm talking about. But I watch the other cars and I've never seen your 99 or my favorites 11 and 22 drive like that. Hopefully these comments will make the people in charge aware so they can look at it and see if hes out of line or not. I think he is but maybe I'm wrong.

I agree with the statement made about the #77 dwarf, he seems to run into cars before the start of the race under caution. Bumping is part of racing and is understanblr but I'm sure the other driver wouldn't be happy about the amount of contact unhealthy makes. The officials should be warning him if not already. Great race by my number one driver the purple #99!!

Mr.Branden Painter I think that is a great idea. I will be pushing for that next race and I hope others will join me.

What was going on with the 77 dwarf car Saturday night? I watched him drive into several cars during both the heat race and main event. Others in the stands were saying the same thing. I've seen him drive like this all year it seems. Have the officials noticed this at all? Maybe this is just racing I don't know but it seems out of line. If I'm wrong please correct me.

Robert, thats aweful especially considering MY son races in minis, this really bothers me and frankly scares me. That person needs to be held accountable for this. Its 100% unacceptable. I would reach out to Eric Evans, he is in charge of the minis and has been really good about keeping everyone in line. We dont need people like that. And correct me if im wrong but he made it clear in the drivers meeting that he does not want to see drivers taking each other out!

I guess looks vs reality can mean two different things. I wish all of you best of luck the next race. oh and by the way, I also like your response which contained no animosity. I appreciate that very much!!

Ok Mark M, sounds like you need a Snickers! Last time I checked we do not run mirrors or 2 way radios in our race cars so how would I be able to know when the 28th was coming around me? I was never given the blue and yellow move over FLAG NOR was anything said on the radio. If you think I intentionally try to wreck Brian Brown you are 100% WRONG!!

Dale I don't believe the caution came out for you because when it happened you continued to roll in the infield and stopped far enough off the track to no be in harms way. I was the announcer and I assumed the caution would come also, however the officials did not believe one was warranted. I race also when my car is running and feel your frustration as we have all been in situations that didn't go our way. You have a good looking fast racecar and appreciate you towing up to play.

Well first,I do want to thank all of you folks(Salazars and all the volunteers) that make it possible for me and my crew to come and race with you all up there!!!

How do you get taken out from behind in, clear view of ALL on the FIRST lap of the main and, not get a re-start or even a yellow flag.Me, my fans in the stands and, my pit crew was not very happy with that NO-CALL.My car has one dent on it from that main and it is on the left rear quarter from my friends car that took me out.
I know it was late and you guys wanted to get home but,I drive 300 miles to race with you guys so,fair calls would be nice anyway.I know you guys where short handed but,COME ON LETS BE FAIR NOW. THANKS GUYS!!!

Mr. Mann I was not referring to you at all!! I was observing the two black cars and watching there on track behavior and how they were "racing" the competition. They both appeared to be having not so good of a night of racing and one of them took the 28 up to the wall in turn 1 and 2. I am not sure but it could have been a
"handling issues. All was corrected when 28 got his spot back and the black car was put to the back for bringing out the yellow. good call on the officials part. I would chalk up the evening to "thats racing". Greg, you always race your best and put on a show for the fans and exhibit no animosity toward others on the track. you set an example for others to follow.

I overheard something very disturbing this last week in the mini dwarf division. A parent told their child to intentionally take out another driver. I hope that is not the example that we are trying to teach the younger drivers. That parent should be ashamed of themself.

Thank you Brandon, for stepping in and doing a GREAT job at announcing x2.

Markm, if you are referring to me as being the “bad sport” and can’t handle consistency of the new drivers, you are wrong! I disagreed with a call that was made by the officials and got there interpretation of the incident, as I have a right to do. Now what I cannot handle is the inconsistency on how the class is managed. I just want to have a fair playing field amongst the whole class. I race everyone with respect, as that is the way I would want to be raced back, however that is not the case sometimes. I realize my car is not handling well right now and I will fix that but I also don’t use it as an excuse run into people either. Rant over. Have a nice day. Greg Mann 81 Street Stock

Wanted to say thanks to the Salazar family and dirt dude for allowing me to be the fill in announcer again! Thanks to all the racers and fans that came up and talked with me and gave me words of encouragement. The opportunity was appreciated.

Just a thought, maybe after every main event cars roll thru the hot pit and the hot pit workers throw that cars tires on the deck/trunk lid to help eliminate tires from either being stolen or "mistakenly" picked up by somebody else. Just a thought. Or atleast 5th to last place.

great nite of racing!! I see that the sportsmanship in the street stock class is wavering and their seems to be some "poor sports" that cant handle the consistency of the new drivers to the class. interesting what three races can do when you dont just race the track and take what it gives you. the mini class did a great job and they put on a good show for a change. dwarfs and the mods and the pure stocks put on a good show too. thanks for the fun nite!! oh yeah and the 25 put on a good show too

this post is directed to the classless, despicable, poor excuse of a female that sits in turn 2 and yells vulgar and obscene comments to the track personnel in front of other fans and small children.. when we find out who you are you will be expelled from our racetrack and anyone else your connected to as well...

That is how to exercise patience and control in a street stock race. Brian Brown, #28, waited for his window to open up and took advantage of it. As a rookie driver, he put on a clinic as to how it is done. Last second drag race and all.

I have received several calls regarding rules for these non point races. This is not an open comp. I cannot stress this enough. All mini dwarf rules will be enforced. Please don't show up with non conforming cars and or motors. You will not be allowed to compete.

I apologize for the delay in the response to the questions for our JR divisions. As you prob already know we have been added to the schedule this sat Aug. 12th and Oct 21st. These are not points races. We have something very special planned for those dates. The delay was from trying to get sponsors on board for those races. We have them in place at least for this race. I know both parents and drivers will enjoy what we have planned for them. There will be a mandatory parents only meeting for all mini dwarf at approx 2:40 at the entrance of the racetrack in turn 4. 1 parent only please. Thank you for your patience. See ya sat.

Looking back on the pure stock main from last week I saw the 53 get penalized for the incident with the 4 car but even though the 4 brought the caution out the 53 had to go to the back for "causing" it shouldn't it be both cars go to the back because in the street stocks a few races ago that exact situation happend and it was to my understanding from officials that both cars would have to go to the back one for bring out the caution and one for helping cause the caution...so what's the official rule were supposed to follow?
