    Default Brownstown drivers

    Hope all of the drivers that had issues are ok! Any and all updates are appreciated...looks as if The Squirrel was holding his left wrist, not sure on status of any of the drivers. Hope all are ok, of course.

    Iím assuming you werenít watching. The track was so rough, someone might have been seriously injured. They never should have started it.

    Lucas screwed RTJ among others by being too prideful to move these races. This weekend should have been switched to next weekend or the week after back when Bristol announced this weekends show. So any of their guys who wanted to race it could. Btown would have had another week or two to work on the track as well and we could have avoided the carnage we saw tonight. Hope all the drivers are okay..

    Today's race at Brownstown should NEVER have even started. Absolutely horrible track conditions. Hope Fast Eddy is ok(that was a nasty tumble) Brian Shirley destroyed his car(Hope he is ok) Again, this race should NEVER started. Brownstown in March is a bad idea to begin with then add in the rain they got this week. HORRIBLE CALL BY LUCAS OIL LATE MODEL SERIES OFFICIALS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Wow, y'all cry much? These cars are built and setup tight. When a racey track appears, loosen the thing up. Problem solved, racing good, and whiners solved

    I feel bad for Brownstown in a way and in a way they brought this on themselves. The track has kinda lost its luster of the last few years. IMO it all started when they got greedy trying to make the Jackson 100 a two day event and then only payout 20,000 ( and before you ask, no I myself donít have 20,000 laying around). But really it took three nasty flips to come to the conclusion ď hmm track ainít safeĒ!! Was no one working on it all week or something. I donít get it

    cars and setup are issues for tracks like that, the cars of today are at fault here not the track, but I'm sure alot will disagree, if you mis the setup, pull off don't try and drive out of a bad setup, todays car won't let you do it, if its setup wrong its going to suck every lap in todays cars, the track took the blame but its more the setups of today along with todays cars, not so much the track
    no blame either way here , just stating facts, and before they say the drop rule, ITS NOT, the rr set ups today have the rr drove into the ground

    You are correct. 20 years ago, no cars would have rolled and the show would go on.
    Droop isn't the problem.

    Can we really blame lucas for this though? Rick lives in cincy area and most likely knew what could've been. Promoters will do all they can to get these early races in. Basically because they know the stands will packed full.

    I dont know who made the call to run it. I feel like it was a no win situation. If they had cancelled, people would've complained and said they could've gotten it in. We see what happened when they tried to run it. These early season races are always a big gamble.

    The cars of today aren't built for stuff like that anymore either

    Maybe a chain on the left rear would fix the problem. (Sarcasm)

    You're correct I didn't understand that they did all that work then called it off.

    The track probably intended to continue, but series or drivers did not.

    Correct. Drivers were already loading up. Couldnt blame em, even with the dozing, track was continuing to get rough, moisture was coming back up. No win situation.
