    Rapid and Zy

    Thanks guys! I guess the part that’s confusing me is Vic opened his bussiness in 2000. He worked for Custom Race Engines prior to then (after leaving NASCAR) doing the heads. Scott ran Custom motors for many many years. The Jack Rousch Ford deal that I was referring to was not the Andy Durham gig.
    It was a very long time ago when basically nobody ran Ford stuff in a dirt late model. Scott signed a 5 year contract with Ford and Rousch supplied some of the parts to Cornett Race Engines (Somerset, Ky) for assembly. After that deal ended-he went back to Custom for Ford engines. I remember at Kentucky Lake Speedway at a Hav-A-Tampa race, Larry Clark who owns Custom told me he could get more horsepower out of a Ford- but it cost a lot more money to do it. Nowadays most all builders do both Ford & Chevy.

    i always laugh at this one, no disrespect here either, the name of the shock doesn't matter, its whats in the shock that matters, and the support that comes with it from said company

    If Vic's stuff was so good, Scott would've continued to run it. When you have a custom trophy made that says "The Hick Ville Engine Swap Champion- Tommy Hicks", that should tell you everything lol. To hear other people tell it, it's that Scott wanted free engines and Vic wouldn't oblige. That's false.Let's say a dog breeder sells 113 dogs in one year. If 81 of those dogs died in that first year, what would the public opinion of that breeder look like?As far as Cody goes... Yep, he's wicked good at making sheit go fast. What he fails to realize, is that the whole "tough guy a-hole" persona isn't being bought by anyone. All it does is show weakness; that he's obviously has a ton of trauma (self inflicted or otherwise) in his life, and that he's not able to man up and overcome that. It's like a toddler constantly throwing a fit, trying to compensate for blows to the ego, which just furthers that behavior. It doesn't make you look tough, it makes you look like an emotional wreck.

    Nothing can help DL, he hasn't been much of a threat anywhere since the outlawing of gadgets and split birdcages.

    Bloomquist ran Vic Hill engines for a good 7/8 years from early 2000s to about 2010.

    Literally on DoD in writing, not the gossip section of 4m, that he was helping Lanigan and Viper Motorsports. And if it worked out well, that it could be long term.

    If he’s with Strickler, talk to DoD. No matter who it is, until he fixes himself, it won’t last long.
    Up in the air who my next “favorite” driver is. Really losing hope on Bloomer getting anywhere back to “normal”.

    I don't know who was right DOD or Reuben, just made mention of them talking about it when the broadcast first started. I'm going with the roving pit reporter.

    Yes Cody is with Strickler this weekend. It is on DoD. Said Vinny left for personal reasons and travel. He got engaged a couple months ago, maybe shes wanting him to stay closer to home, who knows.

    Just seen that. Because Vinnie left, they got him. At least short term.

    Totally missed that article. Seen the Viper one, didn’t see the Strickler one, my bad.

    Maybe Cody can give him what he needs to maintain that massive unsurpassable points lead.

    That engine swap after qualifying was a clusterfk. Looked like 3 blind mice climbing over each other.

    It wasn’t a well greased NHRA 20 minute complete refresh of an engine ?

    And yet that CF allowed him to salvage a 13th place finish and maintain the points lead.... How else would an engine swap go when you have lost your crew chief, your down on personnel and you are working with a guy that you have never worked with?

    How does a guy that says he wants to win the woo championship show up to a race without a engine in the backup car. They haven't got anywhere near the tough part of the season. And if he is so incapable of getting a rocket car around the track that it's not worth his time to put a engine back in it then why even carry it in the box
