    Default Watching Gateway wreckfest on DOD

    Its too bad the track couldnt be a little bigger. Its just too small. I wanted this to be awesome, but so far its pretty sad. The track "wants " to be racy, but its just not big enough to race a full size car. Midgets would be awesome maybe, but LM's? It just aint cuttin it. It was a nice try, and I salute the promoters for trying. DOD's production of the race isnt bad at all. Its not CBS, but they do a pretty good job.

    I don't understand why they have watered and run in the top of the track over and over but have done absolutely nothing to the bottom which is causing 90 percent of the wrecks. Ben Shelton and all the other announcers can talk all they want to about them doing a good job with the track but they are NOT. I came here with an open mind despite all the negativity. I just told someone that was coming tomorrow to just save their money and stay at the house.

    Haha. Well ok. Then Indy must be pretty bad. STL is my hometown, and I want it to be a good event.....Im not whining....im just being honest. Actually i think the turns is just so tight, its causing alot of wrecks. I dunno...maybe it will improve, however at the moment, this isnt exactly good racing.

    I wonder how many drivers have actually raced on a small track like this. Wrecks are going to happen so, better get used to it.

    The drivers asked them to to leave the bottom alone and continue to work the top. That's why!!. By the way it's working!!!

    It would be stupid to touch the bottom, you want the bottom to slick off unless you want to see a freight train around the bottom.

    The racing is pretty good and it looks like the show is gonna be over at a decent time. People LOVE to complain.

    Naw your the dumbass.... sitting behind your (not a nice word)(not a nice word)(not a nice word)(not a nice word) computer and do nothing but complain. This many cars coming through the heats your gonna have cautions. On a bigger track most would be single car cautions. Track like this u collect a few. No biggie, no real damage.. line up and go. U make it out
    To be this big ordeal.

    You should have gone and shown everyone how it's done then.

    One car has rolled......I'd call that a wreckfest too. If you don't like it.....shut it off and quit complaining about.

    The racing has been awesome. A bunch of bent sheet metal, and flat tires. Sounds like short track racing to me.

    This has been awesome to watch. Racing has been good. Track is different which makes it fun. Wish I was down there and I hope this works out so it happens again so I could go.

    Shagger not sure where your from or what kind of race fan u are. I am a traveler... I do very few local shows, unless they are hosting a series. All I'm saying is ive seen races at Belle Claire and Macon which is the same size as this track. The racing is tight but exciting just like it has been tonight. I think you would have to agree there has been some darn good racing tonight??
