« on: August 18, 2008, 10:53:22 PM »
We can no longer run as of this coming Sat the 23.

Unless we have a full rollcage, racin seat with mounts, and a firesuit.

Good luck to the 3 out of 38 of u that have that.

Nothing will make short track racing die quicker than someone dieing....

That upset, why not ride your bicycle the wrong way down the 400 if a thrill is what you need.

Not to mention, if there was a fire, or someone in Innisfil had a heart attack, or another 911 call and all the fire department was at that track, that would be the end of it... Newpaper headline "Local resident DIES because of lack of safety at Sunset Speedway"

There wasn't a choice..

And to put my money where my mouth is, my offer is still open for anyone who need to use a welder...

Before you head up to Barrie, read rule 23 ROLL BARS/CAGE
Full roll cage with minimum 3 door bars on driverís side and two door bars on passengerís side are mandatory

Either you are drunk, or I'm so stupid that I can't read.... Think you are reading sunset's rules friend...

Barrie dosn't have 4-funs, they have "charger" and "Pure Stock". Rule 23 was from the tech section, the rules for both.

To quote the website.. "The Chargers are now the official entry level class, with the more seasoned and competitive drivers moving up to the Pure Stock division. New drivers, or drivers who simply want to get out and have fun, run in the Charger class." and "Chargers and Pure Stock race cars are identical"

You might be thinking of Peterborough which does have a 4-fun class. But by the time you spend 80 bucks on gas getting there and back, shouldn't you just put a cage in your car?

I'm actually really pissed he's pretty much giving us FOUR DAYS.
I for one, don't have a trailor, and I work nights, therefore I won't be up on Wednesday to even get my car let alone find somebody who will be nice enough to put the cage in for me. I don't have that kind of money to just throw away at the moment.

Like I mentioned before, I didn't want to be spending this kind of money for something that I have a month left in running.


He's apparently concerned about one of us being killed.

Where was this thought when he made us run backwards without any of this saftey equipment... and then he wonders why half the class pulled off in protest....

Well put Ash. We as drivers knew the rules and what the dangers are and we still get out there and race. according to what the rules were when we signed up. To change the rules this close to the end of the season SUCKS.

And I'm really biting my tongue

well..I agree the rules need to be changed...but this short of notise is redicious. 

I'd say end of the season...or atleast give a couple of weeks.


rules need to be changed..and this is the right step to be taken..but such short notise is very un-fair

Well he told us all those things were optional a few weeks ago, and would begin to be manditory for the 09 season. And now with FOUR DAYS he's going to expect us all to be ready...
Honestly I don't object to all those things being needed, but FOUR DAYS?!?! I don't think so!!


Oh, I am biting my tongue too. It's the Italian temper in me that wants to lash out and say many many many angry things.

Oh and in case anyone thinks i haven't been in a wreck, I have. I was intentionally spun into the wall by Steve Rose #01 and was knocked out for 30-60 secs they tell me. Thanks to the infield guys helping fix my car i was able to get out 1hr or so later and win my heat.
Steve told my buddy he just wanted a good finish cause his Family was there ??? ::).
I think the guys is a goof but i don't want revenge on the track nor will i ever. Sat was my second night in my new car. And i was involved with the 69 who was trying to roll over my car. My safety stuff is now new ( Belts and Net) but i have changed nothing else to my cars. Ive been in 7 demo derby's and i still feel safer on the track with the bare minimum pertaining to the 4 fun safety rules.
let us finish the year then change the rules to what ever u want and ill be back with all the safety stuff they want.

Sorry cant sleep cause I'm pissed and cant sleep. i had to vent.

 Its unfortunate that it has come to this but i am not surprised . The track had one of its best crowds of the year and a huge car count and the evening was almost lost  because the fire department had to be called again for someone in the Four Fun division .  I believe the car count on Saturday night was 38 Four Fun's with about 4 cars having full cages . We run 3 drivers door bars but do not have a full cage as per the rule book and i have no intention of cutting out our existing cage and building a new one this late in the season . We ran Peterborough 2 Sundays ago at the OSCAAR rain date show and had a great time so i guess thats where we will finish out the season . There seems to be 3 options for all the people in this class , build a cage , park the car or go to Peterborough .

  I don't like the decision Wes Good made but it is his track and he needs to run it the way he thinks is best . I have always found Wes to be very approachable so instead of bad mouthing him on here i suggest you call him or speak to him directly at the track .

 I hope to see a lot of you at Peterborough this Saturday
