Rain now at Hickory and closing in on Richmond. Richmond may be able to get it in after a this passes, not to wide of a storm and moving fast
I took a preachers daughter to see a BGN race at Hickory on a Saturday night Easter weekend 1989.Hickory Speedway looks like it did in the 70's lol.
Thats exactly what I meant, it's awful. I havent walked through that gate in 20 years and it looks the same. I would hate to see the restrooms and where they cook the foodThat's what pisses me off about Hickory. They haven't spent a dime on that place. I've been to abandoned tracks in better shape than Hickory.
I don't think I've ever eaten at Hickory and I hold my piss and **** in until I get to Sheetz.Thats exactly what I meant, it's awful. I havent walked through that gate in 20 years and it looks the same. I would hate to see the restrooms and where they cook the food
Last time I was there we had to go engines silent for a funeral. Thats not a slam on them but an indication of how close the graveyard isI don't think I've ever eaten at Hickory and I hold my piss and **** in until I get to Sheetz.
I love Hickory. The racing is always incredible. But it's the worst facility I've ever been to.
Racing Electronics is usually set up in the pits. I know they had the OTA programming thing set up at North Wilkesboro last fall.Hey Andy, I'm going to Martinsville for the late model race, do you know if there will be a driver scanner sheet available?
She does but as a spotter I just cant understand why she kept getting trapped on the bottom and when she got a run on the car in front she gave them to much room, you have to teach her to take the line awayShe shows a ton of respect to other competitors out there.
Im gonna fast forward to the end, I imagine they will go balls out the last 40 laps but even if, what a pathetic display for this tour.
no wonder you can count the number of fans in the stands with your hands and toes.
Never run this track again
The overwhelming consensus on Facebook today was that it was the best race of the year.
That race played out much like Myrtle Beach races used to, which makes sense considering New River is often called a smaller Myrtle Beach. I LOVE Florence, but the CARS Tour race there in March looked much the same.
The shootout at the end was absolutely epic.
Also, the iPhone Crap Apps were calling for a 70-90% chance of rain.
Prepare for disappointment.
The same way I feel about Florence’s CARS Tour race, take away the competition cautions and it’ll look different.I admire your support for Jacksonville but I could have taken my passenger car and went to the front.I had no idea that track was so worn out and Like I said I would imagine they would go balls out at the end but the beginning was underwhelming,boring as hell to me. I don't get disappointed, I just want watch that crap again
Florence needs some investment. Compared to our dirt tracks in NW Ohio it's in serious disrepairThe same way I feel about Florence’s CARS Tour race, take away the competition cautions and it’ll look different.
The Myrtle Beach 400 was always fun because of the comers and goers. If there isn’t a late race caution, that “Superman” strategy of driving away might work. As Conner Jones did last night prior to the caution.
Franklin County, Florence and Jacksonville are my favorite tracks. Not to mention, as of late, those are the only three tracks that don’t cancel half their races for rain.
