    I tuned in to watch a stock car race and a demolition ensued. lol, This was the 6th year everyone by now knows what this race is. For some this race isn't for them but, for others it's more than just the race it's everything to do with the event itself.

    I believe they need to cut the number of cars in each heat races and have more heat races. I believe it could take less time because, you might not have as many cautions to deal with.

    As far as tearing up equipment they deal with the same stuff in early spring races when tracks get rutted up because, of all the moisture in the track. At least this is at the end of the year when the cars are usually all used up anyway. I realize that might not be the case for some but, that's the chance they take when they enter the event.

    All in all I will tune in again next year for this event and be thankful for those who put this event on.

    Thanks everyone and I will see you in 2023

    Get rid of the Open Wheel Mods and the event would be so much better. Those cars tear up the track plus 90% of the drivers think they are God's gift to racing. I'd rather watch the water truck do laps... pack cars.. anything actually.

    Wow, wow, wow........the race is what it is. Don't watch and you won't be so miserable. Mods can put as good if not better races on than supers. Y'all need to go buy your selfs a cheap low budget racecar for your local track and go get ya some. You'll quickly learn what's fun and what's not!

    One thing that would help is 2 spins and yer done. One example was the #24 Collins. I think he was involved in 4 or 5 yellows. That would definitely speed things up.

    This type event is built for the era we are inÖ..the purists obviously hate it and I get that 100%, but itís certainly entertaining and the backstories surrounding the process,the teams,the uniqueness of the production etc is all great. Itís the best reality television a dirt fan can get.

    Hats off to Cody and his team, I love the dirt track version of cage match rassling in December.
    Where is the move over flag when you need it?????

    Did you have Ben and DJ suck on your bingo card? Its almost unbearable then throw Suave in the stands talking to his buddies, yes class goes out the window. Put Chet Christner on the mic alone and let Ben go home and post pics of his hot wife and Audi on social media!

    BBQ Boy said it right. I told my buddy last night this is the WWE event of dirt racing. Everyone is drunk and love watching $100k cars bouncing thru the ruts indoors in December. Its a party! Cody is a genius!

    Looks pretty racy to me from Erb's view.

    Personally I think it races pretty well for what it is. If the drivers race one another with respect itís actually pretty entertaining. The mods definitely donít do the track surface any favors.

    Couldn't agree more. They act as if they are there college bro's. If they would ever ask a real question they'd get kicked out of the teams pit. Ask the tuff questions.

    BP. do you put xtra bars on the right side of your car ?
    Scott. Dude the Martians are calling, you think it's time to beam up ?
    B Shepp. You left one of the top rides in the country, why ?
    Cody. Why did the partnership with Scott fall apart ?
    WoO, Lucas. Why can't you see the aero problem with today's cars ?
    Ben Shelton, get back in front of the mirror, you need more make-up.

    No kidding! Nobody wants to hurt feelings these days or sponsors may pull their paychecks. Ben has to comment on EVERYTHING, it can never be about a moment or that person. Its tiring. Chet is 10 times more entertaining and does not use the same worn out lines and if he does at least they are funny! I do admit they try really hard to make 2 cars running in a line 5 cars apart into a "battle on the track"


    2 by 2 like Noah led the animals to the ark
    Did you have that on your bingo card?
    he just lost wholesale real estate
    PSG Baby (which is an Essex line)
    Best crowd ever for a Thursday night (or insert the night)

    Ben has little man syndrome without a doubt. I use to tolerate him- not do much anymore. Punk hair, he and his wife pierced and inked up. ( thatís okay if thatís your thing). Heís more interested in getting on social media showing pictures of his new house, new fancy cars, vacations in the islands ect. Who really gives a rats hind end. On camera he seems friendly/sociable- try talking to him in person- itís like I dare you speak to me. I have tried many times (not at the track where he is at work) but in motel lobbies/ breakfast bars ect. I could buy/sell him many times over- but I choose not to boast about personal life. Dustin is good without the little punk Shelton.
    Sure do miss Rigsbyís involvement on the late model scene.

    Anyone else surprised that Hocevar got the promoters choice provisional? I guess we know who will get that provisional in the coming years from here on out.

    That LM feature race had more passing for the lead than some other crown jewel races this year. I'm taking my 9 and 5 year old boys next year. I'm sold on the event.

    They clay near the bottom is like being between a rock and a hard place. The hard surface under the clay is actually working to make the track rough as there is not enough give space for the clay to hold up.
    If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention!

    I think as the event evolves, we'll see less and less big name guys driving their own gear there. It would be cheaper to take some weekend teams Kryptonite out than your main Longhorn.
