There were some photos put up on the Internet from last Saturdays racing at OCFS. One photo was quite disturbing – to me at least. It was a photo taken from in back of the main grandstand. The photo showed JP’s Snack Bar is still closed. I wonder why? No, OCFS has not responded to my request for info about JP’s.
Not next week, but the following week, there’s a good possibility that this column will not be published. If it were, it would probably be a lot smaller. I’ll be attending the Vintage Race Car meet up at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, May 17, 18 & 19, with my daughter, Judy. There’s also a good possibility that the column will be out on Friday that week, rather than the usual Thursday.

Over on the Track Forum, there’s a thread about the Rear Engine cars at Indy, with 2011 now being 50 years since they’ve actually become somewhat competitive.
2011 is not only the Indy 500's 100th anniversary, but also the 50th anniversary of the beginning of the end of the 50-year domination by front-engine cars, as Jack Brabham's little Cooper threw a wrench in the long-established tradition that began with Ray Harroun's Marmon "Wasp" in 1911.”
“While it took until 1965 to shut the door once and for all to the old "roadsters", John Cooper and "Black Jack" planted the seeds of what became one of the greatest eras of racing at the Speedway, the magic 1960s and all the new machinery that had to be devised by traditional and new builders. It was also the beginning of a British invasion that lasted until the end of the 1990's.”
unfortunate to think that the IMS is not too interested in helping out bringing
the glorious old car to join the celebration, but the Brits DO know better, and
Lord March, founder of the Goodwood Festival of Speed, thinks otherwise and has
invited the car to be the star guest of a celebration of that 50-year
anniversary, but on British territory.
So the old machine will leave the
At this time, the engine is being freshened after having been rebuilt from all the original pieces in 1991, and having been driven for nearly 1500 miles since in various races and exhibitions.”
“Actually, the first rear engine car to appear at the speedway was in 1937. Lee Oldfield did not make the race in a car he called the Marmon. The first one to make the race was a rear engine Miller in 1939 driven by George Bailey. Two of these Millers made the race in 1941 (Al Miller, George Barringer), though one (Barringer) was destroyed in the race morning garage fire. One of them made the race in 1946 (Barringer) and in 1947 (Al Miller). The last year the rear engine Miller tried to make the race was in 1951. Another rear engine car (Rounds Rocket) tried to make the race in 1949 (Bill Taylor) and 1950 (Bill Vukovich) but failed both years. Rear engine cars were at the speedway several years earlier than the Cooper. So, there is no need to celebrate this particular rear engine car. If we wanted to celebrate the 50 year anniversary of the rear engine car at Indy, we should of done that in 1987 or 1939.”
rear-engine cars appeared at the
The car that truly turned the tables was that little Cooper, and most books recognize that simple fact.”

Momentum Building For Tuesday, June 7 'Clash at the Can' At Penn Can Speedway; $8,000 Reserved For Winner Of 60-lap Race of Champions Event
SUSQUEHANNA, PA – No BS! The VP Racing Fuels Short Track Four Crown presented by Pioneer Pole Buildings Inc. is set to kick off in unprecedented fashion.
"Making history, one dollar at a time" is the theme of the second annual 'Clash at the Can' 60-lap big-block/small-block Modified event to be contested at the Susquehanna,
A whopping $8,000 is reserved for the victor of the Race of Champions Dirt Modified Tour-sanctioned event: the highest winner's share ever paid in the history of Penn Can Speedway. Additionally, the night's total Modified purse - $21,450 - is an unprecedented number for the facility centrally located on the
While the winner's share of $8,000 has been widely publicized, race teams will be pleased to know every position will receive additional cash at the payoff window. A total purse increase of 34 percent over the '10 edition of the 'Clash at the Can' has been put into place.
'Clash at the Can' sponsors include VP Racing Fuels, Pioneer Pole Buildings Inc., Plant Food Company and Reading Plastic Fabricators.
Manmiller Electric has signed on board to sponsor the 'Clash at the Can' heat races. All heat winners will receive $50 cash. Manmiller Electric is owned by noted dirt Modified racer Doug Manmiller. Consolation events are presented by Dirt Track Digest. On the web at www.dirttrackdigest.com, "If it's on dirt, it's on Dirt Track Digest!"
Last year, the first edition of the 'Clash at the Can' was a study in diversity, with Penn Can regular Brett Tonkin, New York superstar Danny Johnson, Pennsy racer Duane Howard and Canadian Stewart Friesen in the mix. After an extended side-by-side battle with
Penn Can's layout ensures money, fresh rubber and horsepower don't guarantee success, making the 'Clash at the Can' favorable to low-dollar, weekly teams. Tire wear is non-existent. No conflicts on the dirt Modified calendar will allow the touring series stars and Pennsylvania/New Jersey teams to invade the facility. The makings of an all-star field are in place.
A handful of drivers took part in the
April 22 Penn Can Speedway opener to shake down for the 'Clash at the Can'
including red-hot Pennsylvania driver Jeff Strunk (who won the 40-lap
event driving for Norm Hansell) and World of Outlaws

There have been 11 RoC events held at Penn Can since the tour's inception in 2005 with a who's-who of past winners including Stewart Friesen, Howard and Pat Ward in addition to active local stars Joey Grammes, Alan Rudalavage and Brian Weaver.
The 'Clash at the Can' race winner earns a guaranteed starting position - a $500 value - in the New Egypt (N.J.) Speedway Friends of Mike special July 30.
Gates open at 5 p.m. with hot laps at 6:45 p.m. and racing at 7:30 p.m. The 'Clash at the Can' has a rain date of Wednesday, June 8.

Yup, someone complains about a “code name”. You should read some of the comments that are under the article. Just scroll down a little. As of 12:34 PM on Wednesday, there were 14,139 comments listed.
A few of the comments:
“Too late. Argue all you want. Done and over with. Call the next target Custer if it'll make ya feel better.”
“I am native American, and really, really? People please get your panties out of a wad over this. Everyone is so politically correct now. That code name was just that....a code name. It is just a word. Didnt your mother ever teach you "sticks and stones"?”
“Can't say or do anything nowadays without someone getting their panties in a twist.”
“Now the PC people
are starting. What's next? Does the ACLU come out with the following:
"An un-armed man, husband and father, was brutally gunned down by agents of the United States Government in front of his wife without due process? The man's body was then taken by force and then 'disposed of' so that his loved ones would have no monument to his death."
It was a CODE WORD. He was a piece of S*** ! He got better than he deserved and the world right now IS A BETTER PLACE FOR THE ACTIONS OF SEAL TEAM SIX !”
The National Midget Auto Racing Hall of Fame – on the Internet, still has not up-dated its website since December 16, 2010. Still, those that are shown being inducted in the 2008 Fall Newsletter, for 2009 induction, still are not listed – on the website, even with that 2010 up-date. However, I do believe they have their names included as being inducted members when they send out “Snail mail” stuff.
Fall 2008 Newsletter: http://www.worthyofhonor.com/NewsLetters/Fall%2008%20Newsletter.pdf
List of inducted members: http://www.worthyofhonor.com/Inducted_Members.htm
And when you go to the website, itself, you can see that there are others, like George Rice, Ken Hickey, George Amick and Len Sutton, to name a few, that were inducted – 2010 induction, that are still not listed – on the Internet, as members.
I take it that if you’re reading this, then there’s a good possibility that you’ve been watching some NASCAR Cup races on TV – right? And, like me, you’ve noticed quite a few empty seats, too. Well, except for a couple of teams, Major League Baseball isn’t drawing too many fans, either – in fact, most baseball parks look pretty empty. I saw an item on Yahoo! News on Wednesday that said that there’s a good chance that the LA Dodgers might not be able to make their players pay roll at the end of May.

Eric McClure, family survive tornado:
Nationwide Series driver Eric McClure survived the "most helpless and scary" moment of his life Wednesday night when one of the deadly tornadoes that have wreaked havoc on the South ripped through his home in Abbington, Va. "It looks like a war zone, a mine field," said McClure, who spent about four hours huddled under a basement staircase with his wife, three children and two dogs. "It's a debris field as far as you can see. It's shocking. We have never experienced anything like that before," he said. While the house sustained major damage, McClure and his family survived the ordeal without injury. So far, 16 fatalities have been reported in Glade Springs, about eight miles from McClure's home. As of Thursday, 210 deaths had been reported throughout the South, with 131 reported in Alabama.(see full David Newton article at ESPN.com)(4-28-2011)

I’ve been away from the track for a few years now, so it’s very possible that there have been other drivers – other than those I make mention of, that have also gone onto bigger forms or racing vehicles, so chances are real good that I do not know their names. If you know of anyone that’s gone onto bigger things, and had run at the Dirt Oval, how about dropping me a line and let me know their names and where and with what they are now racing. Thanks!

Some non-racing stuff:
“The oil industry is enjoying record profits as the price for a barrel of oil soars to more than $110. Chevron posted its profit numbers for the first quarter. The numbers were tough to stomach. Chevron reported earnings of $6.2 billion ($3.09 per share -- diluted) for the first quarter 2011, compared with $4.6 billion ($2.27 per share -- diluted) in the 2010 first quarter.
The Chevron press release set off a media blitz vilifying the big oil companies. How can these oil companies be making so much money while the American people are struggling to make ends meet and fill their gas tanks. Americans are making daily decisions on sacrifices they must make to put food on the table and pay their mortgage as the oil companies are making obscene profits.”
“Be careful where the blame is laid in this situation. The Obama administration has laid the groundwork for this situation and it is now their responsibility to correct it without getting its hands into private industry. The problem can be solved with a simple change in the administration's policies.
