Can anyone name one Legend driver that has moved up?

Get the Can-Am midgets, Pro Challenge, Legends and the Vintage Modifieds to join forces and tour the tracks as a package.

77 Tim Fernandes runs the 7 legend and the 77 Late at Kawartha.. I gotta be fair ;)

That package idea is a good idea... As I said, I would go to ONE of their shows a year.

I was more upset with you telling me to back off about the season pass issue when you continually were bashing the Legends series. 

Sorry that you took that the wrong way. Back off is the wrong words. I'd be upset if I were you to. All I was saying is that give it a bit of time, nothing they can do about it right now. I'm sure they are in a bad position also, pass holders are upset, drivers are upset, sponsors I'm sure are a bit upset to and its not the tracks fault. A lot they have to sort out..

I would be really shocked, and disapointed if they didn't give you a discount on next year's pass. We've missed what 4 races? Take the price of 4 or 5 off next years pass atleast. I couldn't see them not doing atleast that. Like they are not losing money having you at a race next year for "free" but if they don't I'm sure many people won't come back and that will cost them $$$. So everyone is upset, but whats in the tracks best interest is your best interest and vice versa. Give them some time to work it out.

I don't beleive that Derek would ignore you, just in his postion, with drivers screaming since it was sunny and everything, I think you are getting the response of asking a question of someone thats having a really bad day...

Again that you would take the day or part off work, plus invest in the track for a seaons pass, plus drive from Toronto, is a HUGE compliment to all us drivers.

I'd love to see the Pro Challenge cars get on the same spec, or find some common ground, with the Cup Lites cars, as they're almost the same thing.

Yea there's a lot of us like that Ross...I talk to some of the very same people week after week over in Turn-2..... I come from Pickering..and fight the stop & go traffic on the 401 almost every week.  Beacuse we love watching you guys race....It's a great track..and a great bunch of drivers. It's just really to bad that they already have a farily short season and all these rainouts are not helping.  Theres no reason they can't try to do re-do the Wendsay race in a few weeks...last year they did it in September and it was a great car count...and a nice size crowd.

Didn't TJ Woolsey from OSCAAR run legends when he was younger?
I could be wrong though.
Just trying to give them a little credit.

All in all if the weather wasn't so horrible this year we wouldn't have this problem.  The part about being ignored is more related to a email blast I got from Derek a couple years ago when I was told i know nothing about racing so i was to stay out of problems at the track.  I will not go talk to Derek at the numerous NASCAR events that I am attending this year and discuss Kawartha issues as that is not why he is there.  However I have tried to offer ways to help in letting people know as quick as possible for rain outs because I do want to see Kawartha get better and better.  Unfortunately it seems that it has fallen on deaf ears.

I will always support the drivers from Kawartha as they are doing something which I wish I had the resources to try and do myself.  Not only does it look like a challenge and fun on the track but the stories of how the teams work together in the pits acting as one family is great to hear.

So we'll see what happens for the remainder of this season, maybe the weather clouds will all go away and there will be no more rainouts this year and thus the teams can get back to doing what they want most and thats racing.  If I was in charge of compensating season pass holders I would say $30 for front gate pass holders and $50 off for pit pass holders if there are no more rainouts.  Cause in all reality it was our choice to buy the season pass and we have to accept some of the risk.  jmo anyways.   ;)

Other way around, Warbutton has a few LLM (or was it Challenger) championships at Mosport. Someone rumored my Thunder to have been his challenger at one time..

Not the drivers that suck, its the series...

The division was called Street Stock when Warbutton won his championships. The naming of the division went Street Stock -> Challenger -> Limited Late Model.

Do you classify Dennis Thompson moving from Legends to Ontario pro challenge a step up?  If so that is another one that made a change in series.
