How’s Your Back

Rev. Dan brought an important message to both the Camping World East and Whelen Modified divisions at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. He asked the question, are we willing to carry someone’s burden? Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Racing isn’t easy. There are difficulties around each turn. It would be great if all you had to concern yourself with was getting your car setup for the race. Today we have to worry about many other things. We think we have it hard. I remember a talk given by Dale Inman, former crew chief for Petty Enterprises. His title, “It hasn’t always been this easy.”

Ted Christopher & Keith Rocco Penalized After September 18 Stafford SK Modified Feature

Stafford Motor Speedway issued penalties to points leader Ted Christopher and last Friday’s feature winner Keith Rocco on Tuesday. Christopher was penalized for hitting Rocco after the checkered flag. Christopher was given a 1 race suspension, fined $100, docked 10 points and placed on probation for the rest of the season. Rocco, the driver fifth-place in points, was penalized for “overagressive driving with intent into the 13.” He was given a 1 race suspension and put on probation for the rest of the season.

Entering Friday’s race, Ted Christopher leads Frank Ruocco by 86 points. The maximum points that a driver can earn is 50 points for a victory, giving Ruocco a chance to gain a lot of ground on Christopher. However, with only two races remaining, Christopher would still maintain at least a 36 point margin over Ruocco entering the Fall Final. A finish of 17th or better would earn Christopher the SK Modified title.

Around the Track with Jalopy Jack

This is going to start off very lightly. I can’t even tell you where I’ve been this past weekend. Nor can I comment on anything that happened at New Hampshire, new to somebody who’s not looking out for others in the racing fraternity and made it very difficult for me to travel to and from this particular track. If I tell you where I was it could be a dead giveaway. All I can say is something strange was going on and it all comes down to fairness or lack of fairness. My work here and on WLAR [We Love Auto Racing] at 718-707-1052 is becoming a crusade on how to bring people back to this sport on both sides of the fence. I’m expecting this story to be in 3 parts. And as planned stand, the final part won’t be until much of the season’s over. What I can promise however, is that this’ll be another pure example of what’s hurting short track racing. I may never reveal the characters. But that may depend on whether or not the incidents at this particular speedway have repercussions on certain competitors. This is it for part 1.

Now as you steady readers and listeners [WLAR] know that I’ve come up with a lot of different ideas of how to make racing better again. This mostly pertains to the short tracks but if it can work in the big leagues also, then we can all be a lot happier. The more fun we have with our racing the better it is and the more happy most of us are. When bonehead decisions are made and it results in more costs to competitors that results in less cars, less fans, less fun and less happiness.

My “idea for the week” is for a track and association completely operated by owners and drivers. I know this is being done at a handful of tracks around the country. Whether these tracks were bought or built I don’t know. Some of you have heard of SNYRA. This was the club that operated the now defunct but famous Danbury Fair Racearena. There club was very close to my idea. For years and years it was a full house both in the pits and in the stands. There was 1 problem, they didn’t own the place. And now it’s gone.

Theetge Wins 2009 Serie ACT Castrol Championship

The American Canadian Tour (ACT) crowned Quebec City, Quebec veteran racer Donald Theetge as the 2009 Série ACT Castrol Champion. It was the second ACT Championship for the Theetge team. Theetge led the JPN Racing Patrick Laperle team by 33 points going into the final and longest race of the season, a 300-lap event on the 4/10ths mile oval at Autodrome St. Eustache, just outside Montreal.

Theetge was racing comfortably past the halfway mark in the 300-lap grind when he was involved in a major wreck on the front stretch. The race car suffered what appeared to be irreparable damage. “My team never gave up. My guys literally rebuilt the entire left side of the front suspension during the middle of the race. I have won this ACT Castrol title because of them. They were unbelievable, and I am very proud of how hard they worked to give us a chance to win the title”. Theetge finished 18th after returning to the race 50 laps down. He won the Championship following a bizarre set of events.

Astle adds fourth Pro Stock Title to his resume. Mitchell and Tripp become Champs. Duquette wins LM Open

Seekonk, MA — With three titles to be decided on Saturday, September 19, drivers in three divisions were on the edge. The closest battle to be had was the Pro Stock title, which saw Dave Darling leading the chase by seven over Astle, and 22 over Tom Scully Jr.

For Dave to claim his third Pro title, he had to finish no worse than second if Astle was to win. Early on, it looked like he might be the driver to beat. Moving through traffic early, Dave found himself inside the top three by the fifth lap. On lap six, he moved past early leader Dave Hutchins for second, and started chasing Rob Murphy for the lead. His bid, however, for his third championship ended on lap 13.

On a restart for a lap 12 caution, he and Murphy raced wheel to wheel for over a lap. As they came off turn two, the pair made contact, sending both drivers up the track. While Murphy was able to recover, Darling was not, and the Johnson Landscaping Dodge suffered heavy damage, ending his night. Ken Spencer was also involved and suffered race ending damage.
