I'm glad not everyone thinks like that. Without showmanship and humor, all you get is a dull show and lots of fans deciding to go to the movies on Fri night instead.

Not saying chaos cars are the answer, by why the frick can't people lighten up? Its weekend warrior racing, not the damn Sprint Cup. Its not like they're taking anything away from anyone, and if you don't like em, they run the at the end and it gives you time to get out early.

well said racer!!!!!!!!!!!!they should put the chaos at the end of an enduro instead of inbetween heat and feature to test and see just how popular they are, i am personally pretty curious to see how big the fan base for them is!!!

i speak for myself here, but we do chaos for fun.  you don't hear us complaining about not getting a payout.  the division is meant for entertainment, so if you don't find it entertaining, don't watch.  many people DO like it.  i have an idea to get car count up in all divisions...people need to stop complaining about stuff and either go work on their present equipment to make it faster or build a damn car and put your money where your mouth is...lol.  better yet, even the whole enduro class by wiping out all v8 rear wheel drive cars and make everyone run a front-drive v6.  that most certainly would throw a wrench into everything.  aside from costs rising in enduro to stay competitive, it can be hard to find a camaro or other car to build.  TONES on grand prixs, luminas, etc all over the place!!  just a thought...

I read what all these complainers have to say and I laugh. I don't care anymore if you hate us. I have fun running in the series and so do the other teams. All the complaining is not worth my time posting a valid responce. See you on August 15th whether you like it or not ..l..    ;D

PS- Thanks Doug!  Go Batmobile 109!

I know thats not exactly what you said shadow. You know how i feel about the chaos cars we have talked about it in the pits. However someone started a thread about them and people have been posting there opinions. You cant expect everyones opinion to be rosey and positive. Some like dirt racing and some like aspault and we've argued that too over the years. But when you run a circus act like division at what is supose to be canadas premier short track what do you expect the feed back to be. If you look at the quality of cars in the regular divisions the place is second to none. Then out roll the chaos cars and some may think what the hell is this.
Again, I'm sure the guys with the cars are having a blast, but its just not that entertaining to a "die hard" race fan. I dont see that changing no matter what the car count is. Anyway to be honest I could care less weather they run or not. If more people want to put a couple grand into a car that runs for shits and giggles the more power to them. For those that have gone out on a limb to build one I applaud your efforts. I know how much work goes into putting a car out on the track. Just try not to get too defensive when you here some negative comments. Its not for everyone and you cant expect it to be.

Im wondering if people that dont like the chaos cars would like figure 8 or bus races? Those are only for entertainment. We were at Dixie Motor Speedway in Michigan last year for an Auto Value race. The night had Bomber cars (like thunder cars), a 100 lap super late model race, and a 35 lap AVSS race. After that, there was a figure 8 school bus race. I dont think 10 poeple left their seats. It was packed! I couldn't beleive how much fun it was, and Im a die hard racer and fan!

At the end of the day, the question is do the Chaos cars augment and enhance the race program at Delaware Speedway?  Does it provide a legitimate avenue for people to move into other classes?  Does it provide the entertainment it was designed to provide?  If the answer is no, then they should go in order to maintain Delaware's reputation for being a great racing facility.  The fans need to answer this and I am not sure how you get the answer to this, but perhaps a poll at the end of the season would provide the answer as to whether this show should stay or go.

The chaos cars is not what I really thought it was going to be.
When it came to mind about four and six bangers racing I thought cool, for sure I'm in....that's a way I can get my boy's intrested.

I thought it would be a great way to get the younger crowd into racing because at this time average racer anymore is between 30/50 years old.
and if we don't start getting some younger guys or girls into the sport we are going to be in trouble.

I thought for sure it would be some straight up racing possibly ten laps and maybe a five lap heat to get the feel of some racing..

Not sure how old your boys are, but the JRL is a great way to get the younger set into racing.  We are starting to see several drivers from this division of racing move into the other Delaware racing classes.  (Enduros, Trucks, Super Stocks, Open Wheel Modified and Late Model).

Also I wasn't a huge fan of enduros, but I am starting to see the value in the amount of seat time you can get in those races.  You can put as much or as little into this class as you want.

Not convinced we need another entry level of racing for Delaware but that is just my opinion.

Was not looking for a entry level of racing from them,, but maybe once a month with the Enduros.
I thought we could get them to start running with Enduros cars so we could get more car counts...
If we needed a new entry level it would have to be fiberglass tube chassis trucks.

Gotcha.  Sounds like a good plan.

 When Choas came out I thought it was for drivers who were looking to move up in the ranks of driving as of today I do not no but have any of these drivers moved up to enduro.Sure this is only I think the second year but what I saw after Fridays show none of these drivers should move on.Sorry guys bang and crash.The accident with the starter who by all sounds broke his ankle and thank GOD it could have been worse no way should have happened and if not mistaken the inside pit wall was pushed in also by a car all by himself.Remember guys if you want to wreck your cars go to a demo derby because that is where you belong if you are doing this.Again stick to racing and forget about wrecking everything and remember track staff are on or near the track and seeing another accident  like the other night could be more serious and thank GOD the man upstairs watched over the flagman that night as it could have been more serious than it looked.

There is no doubt, when they announced Chaos Cars I was expecting Enduros with these cars. That does not mean we didn't get a good show. So yes, I was a little disappointed at first. But these guys are pretty fun, and the laughs from the crowds seem genuine.

Not an expert, just tried it, refused to listen to conventional thinking, broke all the parts trying
