Racin' & Internet Stuff:
By Tom Avenengo
Volume # 23
I caught glimpses of a few races on TV over this past weekend. I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall when NA$CAR had that little chat with Carl Edwards and Brian Keselowski about what happened a week ago. On top of that, I would love to hear how both drivers actually felt, not what they came out and said. As far as I’m concerned, it is my belief that they were both given a stern warning – not about what happened, but about what to say.
I was somewhat disappointed in a penalty
handed down to Helio Castroneves, for sure.
Peter Kessler, who is, in a way, an Historian for the
Orange County Fair Speedway in
"The Star-Spangled Banner" has been recognized as the U.S. National Anthem since
1931. U.S. Code § 301 addresses the proper etiquette for
Hand Over Heart
1. When the anthem plays, a
People should not mill around while the anthem plays.
2. A male should remove his hat (discounting religious headwear such as a yarmulke) with his right hand and hold it over his left shoulder. Thus, the hand holding the hat is placed over the heart.
Eating and Drinking
3. According to the Emily Post Institute, a citizen should not eat, drink, smoke or chew gum during the national anthem. If possible, he/she should set down his/her food containers so that there are no items in his/her hands.
I have looked and looked, but I can't find an exemption for race car drivers, their crews, or anyone else in the pits or infield at an automobile race track.
If OCFS management cares enough about our National Anthem to mount Our Flag in the safety truck and circle the track during the playing of the anthem, certainly you can care enough to see to it that the the "pitizens" show similar respect.
What fans in the stands have had to witness EVERY WEEK is, frankly, low rent.
Note: I’m with Mr. Kessler
on this one. And maybe there are some
other track where this occurs, too, but might be out of eyesight for the fans
to see? You might want to check and see
what I have to say about this (OCFS’s part) in “Some of my thoughts”, below.
Some of my thoughts:
While we were watching a couple of races on Sunday, my son happened to make mention that there were almost as many fans at the Indycar race, in Edmonton, as there were fans at the Cup race in Indianapolis. I was actually surprised that they constantly showed shots on TV that showed how many seats were empty in Indy. I would not be surprised that next year, at Indy, they actually close off some of the stands – like they did at Daytona for the last July 4th race, when the entire backstretch stands were closed.
One thing I didn’t see was the last few laps of the Indycar race. After reading about the happenings via the Internet, I figured I just had to watch “Wind Tunnel” on SPEED, Sunday night. Forgot to. Caught the replay on Monday morning though. In case you haven’t heard, Helio Castroneves was penalized for “blocking”. What would have been a win for him, turned out to be a 10th place finish. Castroneves was caught on tape going “ballistic”, and, I, for one, cannot blame him at all. Truly, as Dave Despain said one of the worst ever calls in auto racing.
A video of what happened, follows. Check out the “blocking” from about 2:28 to 2:56 in the video.
With all of the down force that’s built into a lot of today’s racecars, and with most series now almost being “Spec”, it seems that good racing has kind of left us. Any idea why? I have my own thoughts. Presently I usually attend two tracks a week – Accord on Friday night and OCFS on Saturday. Accord is a ¼ mile banked dirt oval. OCFS is a large 5/8 mile track that, prior to the season, had a lot of banking taken off the turns in order to make the racing more competitive, and maybe slow the cars down some. Accord allows “Side Panels” on their Modifieds. OCFS doesn’t. I don’t know if they would make any difference at OC. To me, the racing is a lot better at Accord, with more side by side racing. The “Hot dogs” can get to the front over the course of their feature races. At OCFS, that’s very difficult to do. Lately, it’s been almost impossible. He who starts up front winds up front, as long as they have no problems. Heck, the leaders, at times, can’t even catch the tail-enders. Most everyone is equal, car wise. As far as slowing the cars down at OCFS, look at the times for the Modified and Sportsman cars from last Saturday to what they did last year, same weekend, from a post I put on a forum over the weekend:
Modified best time in feature, last night:
Best Lap Tm 21.712
In Lap 23
Best Speed 103.629
by Tim Hindley
Sportsman, last night:
Best Lap Tm 22.634
In Lap 20
Best Speed 99.408
by Joe Conklin
OCFS Modified best time from 7/25/09:
Best Lap Tm 21.180
In Lap 11
Best Speed 106.232
by Bruce Kline
Sportsman from 7/25/09:
Best Lap Tm 22.366
In Lap 13
Best Speed 100.599
by Mike Ruggiero
Basically it’s about one half second difference, time wise, for both classes. Can you count to ½ a second?
I’ve come out and said that I think OCFS would have better racing if made a little smaller. Some agree, some don’t. How about racing today, on a 1/3 or 3/8 mile dirt track? Competitive? More so than a larger track? Oh and don’t forget, when time trials are involved and the faster cars start up front, especially on a larger track – uh huh, you know what kind of race you’re in for, again, especially on a larger track. I’ve been there and have seen it. Have you?
As for the way things are at OCFS when our National Anthem is being played, somehow, I get the feeling that after this years Eastern States Weekend of racing, it won’t really matter. I think you can see where I’m heading on that?
Oh, and while on the subject of our National Anthem – the last two times I’ve heard it on TV – over these past couple of weeks, both singers seemed to have changed one word:
broad stripes and bright stars, thro' the perilous fight,"
The word "fight" has been changed to the word "night". Any idea as to why?"
And why in the world do some singers, usually female, have to raise their voices and sound pitch when singing and lengthening the word “free”? I don’t think it was written that way. Maybe we should just use a Military band for all playings of our National Anthem?

That will be a tape of the race that would have been run on the preceding Sunday. I think there are about nine of those NASCAR Whelen Modified races that will be telecast on Versus on a tape delay.

The History of the Sport:
Here’s another one from Peter Kessler:
1949, Part III
Stock car racing at Victory Speedway wasn’t a weekly event. There were only a handful of races in 1949. The season opened on April 17, Easter Sunday, and 3,000 fans attended. Chic DiNatale won it. There was another race scheduled for May 15, along with an appearance of the ARDC Midgets. For some reason, very few people showed up to see the races, and they were cancelled. They tried again on May 31, and Bob Disbrow took the feature.
Would be racers were slowly gathering the parts, bits, and pieces to build their new race cars. In 1949, new cars were still selling like hotcakes, and junkyards were chock full of coupes that would become the basis – and backbone – of what was to come.
RUSS DODD PLACES SECOND IN FEATURE STOCK EVENT
Russ Dodd of
Not only did Dodd, driving a Ruffo Motors car, take second place monies in the second half of the 50-lap feature race, but he came in second in the first heat race.
Four accidents, one in the first heat race and three in the main event, brought the huge crowd to its feet. The crack-ups in the final were the most exciting.
On the 18th lap of the feature, Joe Carlson of
After the field was reversed, the second half of the event was started and on the second lap, Dodd produced a bit of the driving which gave him second place at the finish. Angelo Lombardi tried to spin him out in order to pass, but Dodd refused to cooperate.
Instead, the Flying Milkman gave Lombardi a broadside smash, sending him into a spin. The car went out of control, cut down one of the light poles and 15 or 20 feet of fencing, finally coming to a halt on its side.
The race was started again and one lap later, George Petryk went into a spin and tore down another pole at about the same spot on the backstretch. Petryk’s car was pulled back onto the track and he finished the race.
Everything went along smoothly until the 38th
lap, when Jack Camire of
Two laps later, Paul Barbiche, riding in second place, hit the same puddle and smashed into the rear of Camire’s car, sending it down the embankment. Barbiche continued down the embankment too and went right over Camire’s auto and into about four feet of water.
It was at this point the judges decided to end the race, according to regulations. The rule states that any race which is stopped after ¾ of the event has been finished will constitute a completed race.
Chick DiNatale, another
Rocky DiNatale’s number 36 car was purchased last night by
Vincent Kosuga of
It is hoped that by next week, cars will be readied from
In the few photos I have seen of the “Little Track,” it appears that the racing surface was elevated about four to six feet above the level of the infield area.
Other observations: There must have been a plentiful supply of fencing and light poles. Also, puddles of water on the track didn’t seem to deter the drivers from going all out. Additionally, the writer of this news story probably believed that fans came to the stock car races to see wrecks.
Weekly Stock Car racing at Victory Speedway was still a year away. In a nation that had “Racing Fever,” the timing was perfect. With midgets running on Wednesdays, and Stock Cars on Saturdays, fans from this area got a healthy dose of wide open, slam bang action twice a week.
The “Big Car” race was still the big event of the year in
Dirt Oval (
What with “Mother Nature” doing her thing last weekend, there isn’t much to report this week.
At Wall Stadium, in double Modified features, Roger Coss had a 7th and a 2nd.
At OCFS, in the Sportsman feature, Keith Still was 3rd, Brian Krummel 6th, Joe Conklin 8th, Matt Janiak 10th, RJ Smykla 18th, Zack Vavricka 19th and Anthony Perrego 22nd.
In the Modified feature, Clinton Mills was the winner, with Danny Creeden 10th, Johnny Guarino 18th, Billy VanInwegen 19th, Tim Hindley 20th and Mike Ruggiero 25th. I read that Billy was 4th on the 29th of 30 laps when he spun, or was spun, after a restart, then ended up rolling over, after getting hit by another car.
Kyle Armstrong was 2nd, Kolby Schroder 7th, Alex
Bell 9th and Bobby Hackel, III, 20th in the Sportsman
Last night, at OCFS, in the 50 lap Sportsman feature, Anthony Perrego was 1st, Matt Hitchcock 7th, Rich Coons 9th, Kolby Schroder 12th, Brian Krummel 15th, Keith Still 16th, Joe Conklin 19th, Matt Janiak 20th, John Lodini 21st, and RJ Smykla 23rd. Non qualifiers shown were: Zack Vavricka, Mike Ruggiero and Doc Young.
And, last night at Kutztown, in the 270 Micro Sprint feature, Tiffany Wambold was 11th.
More racin’ stuff:
1: Question: Might it be possible for arm restraints, when a racecar is flipping, to somehow unhook the seat belts? Give that some thought. It kind of looks like that is what might have happened a couple of weeks ago at a track near by.
2: In years past, when the fair was on at OCFS, I’d either go in the Drive-In or, back when you got the cost of getting into the fair deducted from your race ticket, into the stands. That’s back when these old legs and back of mine would let me do the extra walking. Now, with the large enclosed trailers, it’s hard to see the front stretch from the Drive-In, and today there’s even less parking available as there was a few years ago, so I don’t go to the races when the fair is on. Still, some do go. A friend of mine did go last Saturday, and he told me this: “Halfway through the modified feature it felt to me as if all the life had gone out of the speedway. It was weird, as if I was witnessing the last breaths of a dying friend in his hospital bed.” I wonder, how many more might have these same feelings?
Note: Back in my column – Volume 12, from May 6th, I had this to say:
“So now I’m wondering, are we slowly seeing
the death of a speedway that’s been around for oh, so many years? It was first used as a horseracing track back
in 1857. Cars first raced on it in 1919,
and except for a few years during WW II, there’s been car racing at
If, indeed, this is the last season for racing at OCFS, where could/should the blame be placed? Management? I don’t think so. After all, the place has been declining for years now. The lease/no lease with DIRTcar? Possible. The lack of real good side-by-side racing? Possible. Cutting back, then doing away with the Small Block class? Possible. Heck, when they only scheduled a couple of Small Block races for the 2010 season, I consider it cutting the class out. Will be interesting to see how many Small Blocks they get this coming Saturday. I’d be surprised if they drew twenty legitimate Small Blocks. Your thoughts?
Of course, I hope I’m wrong in what I’m feeling here.
Just a little history for OCFS – did you know that it was at OCFS that the Atlantic Coast Old Timers had their very first on track exhibition runs. That was on Saturday, May 21, 1983. And also, OCFS is the very first track that the late Nick Fornoro, Sr. first flagged a race? Nick went on to become one of the best starters ever.
3: Watching TT’s for a Nationwide race a while back, an announcer was making mention of a driver qualifying who is in the race (the top 35 deal) and looking for a sponsor. Announcer was saying how the driver could go to a prospective sponsor and tell them “I’ll get your name on TV because I’m in the race”. Well, it doesn’t really work that way, sad to say – especially when there are Cup drivers in the Nationwide race.
Example: A few years ago, the late Kevin Grubb had a first time sponsor’s companies name on his car. Sponsor was at the track, in the pits, and was extremely proud to see Kevin leading the race for quite a few laps, over 20, I believe, with his companies name proudly displayed on the car. He was also taping the race at home. Yep, when he returned home and watched the tape, he was very disappointed. His car was never shown while Kevin was leading. It was shown, ONCE, when it was passed for the lead. He vowed at that time to NEVER sponsor another car in a NASCAR event. Seems that the cameras were focused on the Cup drivers in that race, regardless as to where they were running, position wise. Can’t say as I blame him!
4: I take it that by now you’ve heard that NASCAR has fined two drivers, one with a fine of at least $50,000.00, for some things that they’ve said? It’s been pretty well covered on the Internet, but here’s what was on Jayski’s website:
NASCAR fines unnamed drivers for comments: UPDATE: NASCAR has fined at
least two of its star drivers this season for making critical comments about
the racing series, The Associated Press has learned. People familiar with the
penalties told the AP the comments were considered disparaging to the sport.
The people spoke on condition of anonymity because NASCAR is not publicly
identifying the topflight drivers it fined. They say one driver was penalized
as much as $50,000. The decision to fine competitors for critical comments puts
NASCAR in line with many other professional sports leagues. The NFL and NBA
both routinely issue fines for criticism of officiating. It also backs up
NASCAR's season-long campaign to rebuild the slumping sport through an improved
on-track product and off-track promotion from its drivers.(Associated
UPDATE: The Associated Press has learned that NASCAR warned teams during the offseason that public criticism of the sport would no longer be tolerated, and at least two star drivers have been fined-one as much as $50,000-for comments that were deemed destructive to the industry. NASCAR spokesman Ramsey Poston on Monday night confirmed some action had been taken, but would not discuss details. "It is the sanctioning body's obligation on behalf of the industry and our fans to protect the sport's brand," Poston said. "Any action taken by NASCAR has nothing to do with the drivers expressing an opinion-it's focused on actions or comments that materially damage the sport. We have specifically discussed this in meetings with teams, drivers and stakeholders." Drivers all declined to publicly discuss the policy, but it shouldn't come as any surprise-considering NASCAR's heightened effort this year to re-ignite interest in a sport that's been fighting sagging attendance, declining television ratings and overall fan apathy for several seasons. NASCAR has taken several aggressive steps toward improving the on-track product, but its top brass decided that outstanding events aren't enough to overcome the negative perception created every time a driver publicly blasts the series.(Associated Press)(7-27-2010)”

The person in this video, who I’m sure you’ll recognize, was born on August 4, 1961. In this video, he claims his father had served in the Second World War. His father was born on April 4, 1936. Now maybe this person actually meant his stepfather? If so, his stepfather was born in 1935.
You do realize the years that the Second World War was fought, right? Oh, you forgot? How about the years 1939, 1940, 1941, 1942, 1943, 1944 & 1945? You see where I’m heading here, right? You do the math, and figure out how old his father would have been and/or how old his stepfather would have been during those war years.

His stepfathers name: Lolo Soetoro

The judge also delayed parts of the law that required immigrants to carry their papers at all times, and made it illegal for undocumented workers to solicit employment in public places — a move aimed at day laborers. In addition, the judge blocked officers from making warrantless arrests of suspected illegal immigrants.

parts of the law were not passed. I can

Robert Nardelli, Home Depot (Package worth: $210 million). Unlike some of the other executives who made this list, Robert Nardelli didn't exactly run his company into the ground. Even though its stock price struggled, Home Depot expanded substantially under Nardelli's watch. Still, Nardelli, once celebrated as a disciplined leader who almost inherited the GE throne, is now equally remembered for the shocking size of the compensation package he received when he was forced out. Ironically, it was Nardelli's large paycheck--he made $38.1 million as part of his last yearly contract with Home Depot--that prompted shareholders to call for his ouster.
Closing with this:
A guy shopping in a supermarket noticed a little old lady following him around. If he stopped, she stopped. Furthermore she kept staring at him. She finally overtook him at the checkout, and she turned to him and said, "I hope I haven't made you feel ill at ease; it's just that you look so much like my late son."
answered, "That's okay."
"I know it's silly, but if you'd call out "Good bye, Mom" as I leave the store, it would make me feel so happy."
She then went through the checkout, and as she was on her way out of the store, the man called out, "Goodbye, Mother." The little old lady waved and smiled back at him.
Pleased that he had brought a little sunshine into someone's day, he went to pay for his groceries. "That comes to $121.85," said the clerk. "How come so much. I only bought 5 items.
The clerk replied, "Yeah, but your Mother said you'd pay for her things, too.
