Well done Mark B head Tec Kris and his guys do a great job I'm sure they could have done better without the peanut gallery behind them telling them how to do it thanks to all the volunteers and the Salazars for giving us a place to race

I would like to say "Thank You" to the tech guys for teching the compression of the Pony Stocks in a timely and professional manner after the race. You did a great job and, as you guys know, I always welcome and encourage your tech of our class. We would like to keep the Stock Pony's an affordable class and your tech efforts are a BIG part of that. Thank You!!!

Brian 22 pure, you've miss understood my comment, seem like a great sprortsman. It was directed more toward pre race tech wich you have OBVIOUSLY never failed.

No Lynn it was definitely not the individual you described...these people were not in any way disabled or incapable of honoring the tradition of the national anthem...and just as a foot note the flag that flies there at the track was flown at a compound in Iraq by a friend of mine who served there..

And one last thing if u think I put all my time sweat and $$ into this car for a plastic trophy,
U r sadly sadly mistaken.
What I do it for is so some lil dude or dudette will say " I got the #22 he's my car. Just like I did for David Beat or Danny Gay Or Smiling Ed Hale. That's the reason I race J.R.

Hey J.R I have NEVER FAILED PRERACE TECH so shove that up ur a##. Also never had a mechanical failure. I drive a pure stock which means I'm learning to drive and how a car works. Which car do u crew for ? Because BOTH the cars I crew for mine and the 01 MOD have been invited to the car show . That's right invited. Yes my quarter was flapping that's cuz a pure stock driver ran into me in staging from behind. Right now Mr. J.R I am learning the IMPORTANT THINGS IN A RACE CAR! Like caster and camber and cross weight. Can u tell me ur roll center . Those are the important things to learn. I can do body work and if ud like to c my car with a new quarter looking real nice come to the e.c car show. I was INVITED to the promenade. I work my tail off to prep both my car and my bosses which is a modified WAY MORE INVOLVED .

At Royce I think you missed my point. I'm not saying he's causing cautions or has ever been a danger to another car because of inexperience, I'm saying a rear quarter panel flying like a wing with three rivers it's in acceptable for any race venue, but with all the bumpers coming off each race maybe certain rules aren't enforced like "chaining or strapping" of bumpers. Just a fan that doesn't want something bad to happen over neglect.

Hey Debi, I'm trying to get new panels and wrap on car by tomorrow for the car show.

JR I have to say the 22 last race had changed a lot and actually did a lot better. For the resources he had in the past to now there was a big change. He didn't spin out and his frame isn't bent a foot into the air and pushed back anymore. He's worked very hard on that car and it will only get better. He hasn't been doing this for years like most and is having a blast and getting his racing program together. I personally have gone over to make sure suspension bolts are tight and he isn't all over the place. In fact he held a consistant line last race and didn't cause a caution nor deny a panel in. Can the rest say that?

Part three response to Debi:
That all being said, I want to take a moment to apologize to Kris & Roger for my role in the BS in tech. I've had some time to decompress & those involved know what happened & WHY it escalated & I'm not getting into it here.
However, while I will not apologize for providing information to you Roger, I will apologize to Kris for how it was delivered. I should not have called you out the way I did & I am sorry for any embarrassment or unfair bias that may have caused towards you that night. From a drivers perspective, when you are told something by an official & it changes after a race is won but not mentioned any other time, it is even more frustrating than if it was just caught in tech. I will not go into details but you both know what I am talking about. Had I gone about it differently the argument & nastiness may not have followed. I hope we can all take that as a lesson & & be more respectful to each other, even when we are faced with a mistake made.

Part two response to Debi:

Debi, you have always been a great asset and your ability to maintain an unbiased and upstanding position there has been just like my mom, pretty much unwavering, but not all of the officials have been that way.

What frustrates me as a Driver, Crew and even a prior OFFICIAL, those that seem to "abuse" their "power" or blatantly try to lie to save their rear end as officials are what creates a lot of animosity between drivers or crew and certain officials- thus creating a blanketed disregard for the fact that you all are volunteers and have feelings too.

Do unto others people...

Part one response to Debi:

I have always been appreciative of the officials there, especially with my mom doing what she does and being around Barona my entire life. However, I fully believe respect should be given both ways. If, as an official you make a mistake, own up to it- don't start screaming and cussing at people because YOU don't want to admit you were wrong. Respect should be given when it's expected. I ALWAYS take time throughout the season to thank Todd and Judy and many of the officials for keeping Barona alive, because without them, my father and the other original founders of Barona's dreams would have been gone a long time ago.

We could use one more nice looking Street Stock for Wednesday at the car show. Another Mod would be nice too. Please contact me, do NOT just show up. Thanks!

The Promenade is on Main across the street from Por Favors at the park. Park your trucks and trailers on Douglas or a side street. Plenty of parking. So far I have Belcher, 46 & 44 stock pony, 5 and 7 street, 1 modified, 18 pure, (need 1 more) 5 and 93 pro pony, 5 and K9 supers, 37 and 15 dwarfs, and we have room for several mini's and juniors. If you can't make it, please let me know now. If you want to bring your car, let me know. It is BY INVITATION ONLY. 619-249-7763

Author: Debi Chapman
We do not have a sanctioning body like Cajon did, so we have to do this ourselves. Next time you race and you're NOT pissed off by something, try thanking an official Next time you race and you LIKE a call, try thanking an official. We bust our asses, not just every other Saturday, but all week long, INCLUDING the off season. What are YOU doing? If you don't like what's we are doing, STEP UP> You but up with people screaming in your face, calling you names and treating you like you are less than them. Let me know how that works out for you. Marv and I have been SERVING YOU at Barona for 11 years. We couldn't do it without people like Kris, Roger, Jerry, Ryan, Brian and so many more.

Well said, Kris. All of our jobs are thankless, but most of the racers don't realize that we do it FOR them. It's really a shame. There is no glory in being hated and disrespected by 75% of you, believe me. We do it because we want to see racing stay alive in San Diego, with as fair a playing field as possible.

Pre race inspection is primarily for safety? When does the 22 pure become un safe? Missing bolts in control arm ball joints and body panels flapping in the wind seems un safe to the entire field, not to mention a slap in the face to the drivers/teams who put time/money into making ther car safe and presentable. The fans are greatfull for high car counts and an amazing show but if other tracks won't pass that car why should barona

Roger H. Just in case you're referring to the older gentleman sitting in a chair during the national anthem, who I noticed didn't stand, is very hard of hearing and didn't notice any visual cues as to what was happening. There was no intentional disrespect there.

Everyone can sure run their mouths about what we do as officials but you need to remember a few things. 1st we are human. 2nd we don't get paid in any way for what we do at that track. we are there so you guys all can race and fans come see a race. There are many things that we have to do that you all do not see. So all of you that have BITCH about any official I think need to shut up!!! if anyone has a question on things about cars you alll know how to get ahold of me.

Third this is for Barb.... the 7k car did fix the one issue that i had with his shocks. And he was not the only one that had the gray area type of mount. The others were told that they had to change them also. And when drivers make the corrections that I ask of them I always tell them thank you for making the correction that I asked of them. Tech is not an easy job to do..Many bitch about this or that in tech. But when you telll them you think you can do better then you do it they always shout there mouths up cuz no one wants to do it. Yes I have several people that i know that race and I put everyone on the same playing field. When I'm there as an official I'm not there as there friend. And they all can tell you that.

Ok first off i would like to thank Jerry my assistant for making it out on Saturday even thou you were not feeling good. I would also like to thank the other few that do lend a hand when they have time. ( you guys know who you are). Second all of you that bitch about "well you didn't catch it in pre-tech. Get over it when i do catch you on rule violations. Pre-tech is mainly safety issues. There is only two of us that mainly run tech with around 50 car to ck in 3 hrs.

Oh Barb, you're the typical whining loser. First off, you have no idea about shocks so you should prob zip it. Second, your little points life is pretty funny. It's all about the points hahaha. You define what a loser is with how much you cry FYI

Jason, you were on fire last night! Great job! I also wanted to give a shout out to Ryan Lerwill for winning his first heat race as a ROOKIE. The Pures had the cleanest race of the night, I think. Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there.

Response to Barb:
I was curious if you also felt that 5 INTENTIONALLY dumped 12 going down the front stretch after the restart? I mean, I don't think 2 wrongs make a right but that's clearly what it looked like to me. Plus, I've witnessed both 5 &12 make intentional retaliation hits on other drivers, so maybe a taste of their own medicine was in order? Championship cost or not, maybe the street stock drivers should stop playing bumper cars & start actually racing- seems like most of that class are either innocent victims of shenanigans of certain drivers OR are other certain drivers. I am fairly sure pure stocks were deemed as a beginners class, not street stocks. No reason to be ruining race cars every race.
As for the 7K, that car was teched after last race and was deemed to have LEGAL shocks with only a problem with the mount, which I believe was changed. Perhaps you could address that question with the tech official Chris. He may be able to provide more insight into that issue.

Also to clarify what you might be thinking, shocks were MOUNTED in the grey area and Barona officials asked me to correct the issue and I did so!
Date: 6-19-2016
Author: 7k
My Shocks are 100% legal, I think you do not understand how to read rules, just because the not red qa 1 like everyone else's doesn't make them illegal. There just afco, right out of the speedway catalog... If you want to run my shock package and get you car setup give me a call.. But don't make assumptions when you don't know what your talking about..
Date: 6-19-2016
Author: Jake 14/7k
Barb the shocks are not illegal and they are on multiple cars out their also if you don't believe me I will take one off and let you take it apart to see its the same as a QA1 which are on almost every streetstock they are just a more expensive/durable brand that don't blow out after 3 races like how we have had problems with before

I have a autistic friend that would love to sing the national anthem for the autism awareness night. Who do I need to arrange this with? Thanks
Date: 6-19-2016
Author: Barb
A few questions: why does street stock 7K keep getting away with illegal shocks? And why was street stock 12 not automatically disqualified for INTENTIONALLY taking out the 5 car? It was obvious as hell! Bad call putting 5 in the back and giving him a rolled black for no reason. May have cost him the track championship.

Good job everyone who raced this weekend! My dad introduced me to the speedway a couple races ago. This weekend marked my 3rd race. I'm excited for more! I still can't believe I know people who race! (Kelsey Shockey MODIFIED 27: went to school with her for a year and Britney Sandoval DWARF 37: teacher from middle school) It's amazing. Kelsey, you did an awesome job this weekend! And Britney, you rocked! You almost got passed that dang #7! You give the best hugs ever and I'll see you next race :) to everyone: have a good 2 weeks and STAY HYDRATED! See you in 2 weeks!

during the national anthem my thoughts are with the military, past and present who have given us the right to be free..i also think of first responders who risk their own lives to keep us safe..so when I see people sit through the national anthem like I did Saturday night in the pit spectator area.. I found it to be despicable... my opinion.. enjoy your freedom..
