If anyone knows anybody that has a truck, encourage them to read this thread, I think we (the truck owners and drivers) need to get together and get a meeting with delaware to talk about options, not entirely sure what options, I think if we get 10-15 truck guys in a room along with the tech dept and management we can make some improvements, to get more guys on the track, I would be willing to make the phone calls if I had the numbers of some of the guys from 2005-2012 in this series, the truck have to be around and maybe we can figure out some sort of weight penalty on the updated trucks like mine to be able to run with the old rule trucks or something. I am defiantly willing to work with the track to do this but we need support from the guys in the class, I ran in 2006 & 2007 and we had 25 trucks every night, and I ran 2 races at the end of this past season with 7 or 8 and frankly it was much more fun with more trucks, for the drivers and the fans. So if you guys have a truck or know someone who does think about this and write back on this thread and maybe we can get together with the speedway and see if we can work some things out. Just my thoughts but like many of you guys nobody wants to see the class go, at one time the trucks were a great highlight to the Friday night program and I think we can get there again!!

One point that hasn't been mentioned yet, is the fact a lot of the drivers that ran Trucks for many years have since moved up, or to another class to race in.

Kathleen Hosang - Moved up to Super Stock.
Michelle and Matt Koricina - Moved to Motocross and Snowcross
Jeff Showler - Moved to Super Stocks
Gary Triska - Moved to V8 Stocks
Paul Fothergill and Sid McDonald - Moved up to the Lucas Oil Sportsman Series

That's 7 trucks right there that were not replaced. Then there's guys like Sean Johns, the Thompsons, Jordan Dupuis, They've all moved on to bigger and better things.

There's 12 trucks that were not replaced. If there are no new drivers coming up through the ranks to replace departing teams, then you are going to incur losses.

Sure, costs could play a factor in reasons for the lack of new teams, but I think it was just a matter of guys moving on that got us to where we are today.

sounds like to me your on the right track ,racers are very selfish they just wanna go faster and faster most of them have money which wrecks the class(not saying your one)we all in every class need to look past our owe race car/truck whats best to keep it fair and alive long after we hang our helmets up,  ,your the first one to say lets bring in weight so the older trucks can run and not get there ass kicked I think the key is not to wait to long before we all know it april will be here ,and by then it may be to late, I honestly think the track was trying to save the trucks ,with the v8 stocks running with them ,its tough to reverse the last 5 years ,so really its up to you guys ,show the track you have the trucks to back it up.....do it man don't let them die ....good luck!!!

Our 43 truck has been sitting for a long time. Just when we had the setup figured out, season was over. Owner pulled the plug on the deal. We want to race again, but convincing him would be tough. May ba a job for Sid.... :)

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

I still think the trucks have to survive because its the only full framed v8 street vehicle in production that you can readily pick up at the junk yard and turn into a racer.

Hey those guys who have trucks, what are you looking to get for them?

Well, mine's almost turnkey (needs a rad and a power steering pump mount), I had it listed for $4k which I thought was pretty reasonable considering what I dumped in it.  With it not running at the moment I suppose $3k just to get it out of there.

Built.  Carquest machine shop and myself.  Which reminds me I also traded the lead for a radiator, so you'd need some lead for the built-motor handicap.

Also, If anyone has any suggestions on how to make the old rules trucks to be competitive with the new rules package, I will try and read them all and come up with something to present to the speedway staff, email them to verbernemotorsports@yahoo.ca
