He was at the Media Day for the race but didn't drive in the race.

It was a Bodine!! Jeff Bodine, I think...

No Brett was supposed to drive, so he was there for media day, but he had to leave, so Geoffry subed in the race for him. I think LOL

UPDATE: Brett Bodine said yesterday [at the Canada Day Shootout at Cayuga Speedway, where his brother Geoffrey subbed for him] he has a new three-year deal on the table and should have it signed within 10 days.(Toronto Sun)(6-30-2003)

The Canada Day Shoot Out will feature not only some of Canada’s top stock car drivers, but also 3 of NASCAR’s star drivers; Kenny Wallace, two time Daytona 500 winner Sterling Marlin and Geoff Bodine. Geoff will be driving in place of his brother Brett Bodine, who was recently injured during practice at Michigan International Speedway.

It was the old ASA series that saw the likes of Mark Martin and Dale sr among many other legends race at cayuga speedway

Mark even had a broken leg for one race I think and had to be carried from the car afterwords

Bodine, Wallace and Marlin ran the 2'nd time they came up.

The first time the guys came up it was Schrader, Stewart, Kenseth, Benson, Blaney & Musgrave. Stewart even jumped into an ISMA Super Modified, as they ran that weekend as well!

You must have major ulcers if you are worried what others do all the time. Ross take a deep Breath. The whole Canadian Racing world is not on your shoulder.

If the track did this as a PR stunt you don't look bad they would but jumping on a press release like this and saying it might be a rumor or pr stunt makes it look bad for racing and maybe less papers will report on Canadian Racing news and we all know how Canadian Motorsports doesn't get much time in local or major papers in Canada. So we could say that people attacking articles makes it bad for racing.

Why would this make Canadian Racing look Micky Mouse? The person that got the info might look a bit bad but the track would look bad to some for a bit but great racing in Canada would continue and the track would still hold events.

OK so the drivers you mentioned below are going to draw huge crowds to a track and bring in new fans to Canadian Racing? Nope not at all. Race fans that are already into racing in Canada would go see these great Canadian Drivers but they are not going to pay $25 - $35 a ticket to see these guys.

You seem to be missing the big picture here. They pull off this race Canadian Racing gets noticed more by US shows mentioning this race and more Canadian Fans get into seeing races at local tracks in Canada.


Why not call up the track and ask them your many questions and report back to us? Because what you are saying is really stuff you came up with and is not based on any facts. So why should someone look at what you are writing and believe any of it or people could say you are bad for racing? as you seem to be jumping all over it and making like it is impossible to pull this off.




I just don't think racing needs another rumor, that may not take shape. It makes racing here look Micky Mouse. It says, the only way we can get attention for our track is for Cup drivers to show up. That's sad, considering how many talented local drivers we have here. Give me Hanley, Watson, Walters, McHattie, Ryens, Mayhew, Baker, JR ect ect ect ANYDAY over Waltrip...

My concern is that its a PR stunt and isn't practical...

Your 100% right on this as I was there in the Pits and these were the only drivers I saw there and got pictures of.

Bodine, Wallace and Marlin ran the 2'nd time they came up.

The first time the guys came up it was Schrader, Stewart, Kenseth, Benson, Blaney & Musgrave. Stewart even jumped into an ISMA Super Modified, as they ran that weekend as well!

Delaware had Johnny Benson running one weekend this past summer and I didn't hear about it until afterward and I keep my ear to the ground on this stuff. Tracks need to do a lot more PR stuff and get the chat going. If this report is not totally correct about Cayuga (we have heard lots of stuff about Cayuga that hasn't panned out) then so be it. Last years ARCA race at Cayuga was a huge disappointment as far as fan turn out goes because there was zero PR. Get the buzz going.

p.s. speaking of Delaware, whats up with their site? You go there and the site has been suspended and gives links to pay the bill.

OK now that I have posted both races where Nascar drivers drove at Cayuga. Why is it not possible to have drivers here again. Why should we believe the doubters?

Why look for the bad in the release? Doesn't make any sense. Ross why not get the drivers you mention and approach a track and put a good race show on for us?

See and when the press releases and we get chating about it we have people doubting it and why should they bother reporting it if all we do is knock it before the event even happens. I know Cayuga made a lot of promisses and they intended to do a lot with the track but the cost was just too much but for racing is a different story I have seen and hear great racing there.

If it doesn't happen come on here and complain but doing it before doesn't help racing.

I own a hosting company and this can happen for many reasons. The system never processed the payment, They are transferring to a new host or someone forgot or was late in sending out the payment. This happens all the time some hosting company's have a 10 day non payment and the system suspends the account. 10 days is to fast to do and I set mine at 2 month before it suspends the account with that notice.

I have contacted someone that works at the track to let them know if they don't know already.


The track is doing well and the 2009 schedule will be out shortly.
