    The Hoosier tire website has them for sale at this point. $175 each.
    If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention!

    When I was there in 19 to see my cousin put in the Hall of Fame, the tire rule sucked! Kevin ran 2nd in his heat for 7 laps. Then a caution, Then he dropped like a rock! I still have a picture of that blistered tire.

    Those Lucas spec tires were trash.

    Another night of 8 cars with one groove around the top. Could not even get a slide job to work the bottom was so bad. Heard complaints from half the lm drivers about how the track has been this season.

    Forgive me for an asphalt note: I went to Hickory for the CARS tour race last night. Late model stock car (my version of crate late models) paid $6000 to win and drew 32 cars. Super late models paid $5000 to win, and drew 12 cars. for me, I guess I just have to realize I live in NC, where late model stocks rule asphalt, but I really thought 5 grand should have brought out more than 12 cars.

    And for the tire note, CARS tours has delayed their next race due to tire shortage, so it is affecting lots of racing.

    They want every race to be won on the cushion, it’s pretty obvious. Rice probably can’t sleep counting down the days til the North South

    The track sucks this year, it has for the past 3 or 4 years. Its so one dimensional, the only way to pass is a hail mary slider and 3/4s of the people throwing the sliders have no idea what there doing. Junk up race cars all the time with this crap.

    Its tough to do but Florence really needs to balance it out a little, it wont take much to throw some water on the bottom and open up the track a little, or knock down the cushion and see who really has some skills to roll the middle.

    Just say no...

    And the person mentioned above is one of the ones who throws them sliders.
    Up in the air who my next “favorite” driver is. Really losing hope on Bloomer getting anywhere back to “normal”.

    Not sure what you mean, but i dont race any longer, been years now. Actually got black flagged at Florence for rough driving at my last race LOL, was good times.

    I am part owner in a Team, race there quite abit.

    Dont want to seem overly critical of the track either, reading my post it would seem that way, but i would like to see some better action on the track. Its just so one dimensional. Overall Florence is a great track to call home, a lot to praise there.

    Just say no...

    Saturday was the last points race for late models. 9 cars. Wide open around the top has ruined racing for late models.

    Part time schedule is just a good way to accelerate to a no time schedule.

    This is really simple I go and help out some at a local track me and the owner/ promoter had a discussion about this subject it. Is a big deal he told me it's very hard to run Latemodels he said he actually looses money cause the count is so low but you still have to pay them good money and that's because a competitive Latemodel expense has gotten completely out of hand we have comp cams early then one other time that's it.
    I think it's gonna eventually be only touring series no local Latemodels what do ya'll think

    I think only 5% of the people on the planet know the difference between "lose" and "loose"
