    Default Portsmouth should be embarrassed.

    For as much time as they spent on that track it was a joke.

    Baffling how they spend that much time working the surface and have it take that much rubber around the bottom in 30 laps.

    This is why I constantly say the DTWC needs a new home. I love the town, the restaurants and the feel at Portsmouth but Iíve never seen a good 100 lapper there.

    This is why I quit going, now that we can watch it from the house Iíll never return. And I have much respect for BShep, and Mark Richards, but itís getting boring watching them win. Like it was with Bloomer 7-8 years ago.

    No matter what kind of dirt they have there, whoever was making the calls screwed up and didnít dig or water enough. They had all day to work on it and did that. With that said, everyone makes mistakes and from what I remember, they had a really good 4th of July race there and Iím sure many others.

    Snoozer after less than 50 laps. There is only so much water you can put on river silt and have track stay together.
    Prp sucks as the home of the DTWC. Town is cool and helps their economy, but at the cost of a good race? Definitely needs a new home.
    I think there should be lifeguards in the genepool.

    Maybe it was not so much lack of track prep, but more about how well the winning team was prepped and ready to win.

    Nope. It was a bad track. With that said, Bshepp was the class of the field. He even said in his interview that he could tell before the race that it was going to lock down around the bottom before halfway.

    It was junk. It even has a history of being junk. Therefore it was junk... Again...

    Yup, I told my wife when Sheppard was uncharacteristically hammering it early to get the lead that he knew what was up and wanted to be out front when it bolted down.

    I thought there was supposed to be a NQ race. I watched part of the steel block and switched over to Tri City. Never thought about switching back. Shame because there had to be some good cars. It had to be a train race

    Third year in a row the excitement was over after the first 30 laps. It is time to move this race somewhere else. I loved it there for a while but it has run its course. Please please please move it.
    If you ain't fast, you're running last!

    When you put a grader out there with a chisel on the back and the chisel cuts slits like that water does no good. If that chisel doesnít break up the ground and just cuts lines you need to rip deep. They literally wasted all that time on track prep. If I was a promoter and had to pay out the money for that circus I would be pissed.

    TMac said it in his interview, track was gone and rubbers after 40. Only a few places I know that can produce good races beyond 50 laps. This place ainít one of them. However, BShepp was out front when it took rubber and cya later and 100K richer.
