    2021 Race of Champions Schedule

    Would it be asking too much to see the 2021 Race of Champions Modified schedule?  I know it's only January (!), but most race tracks and sanctioning organizations have already released their schedules.  Why hasn't the RoC schedule been released yet?

    2019 Race of Champions Asphalt Modified Schedule?

    What do we know so far?  Two races at Lake Erie.  One race at Holland.  Chemung says they'll hold two events but no schedule yet.  Lancaster surely can't be counted on for anything at this point.  What's up with Spencer Speedway?  Going back to Jukasa Speedway sure would be nice.  Anything...

    Evergreen Raceway

    Did it rain anytime today at the race track?  Some of us at Jennerstown on Saturday were pretty unhappy when Evergreen cancelled their Sunday events because of the weather forecast.  It would appear that it remained quite dry (so far) in the Drums, PA area.

    Lake Erie Speedway Ticket Pricing

    First of all, Lake Erie Speedway is a wonderful facility.  Since I had not returned since the last Whelen (Featherlite) Modified Tour race many years ago, it was good to get back and enjoy the racing action.  While I had originally thought there were too many classes on the schedule Saturday...

    Weather Forecast and Potential ROC Conflict?

    Looking out my window at the rain outside and thinking about what could happen given the current weather forecast.  If the ROC event (Octoberfast) at Mahoning Valley is rained out this weekend, wouldn't it make sense for the local promoter to reschedule it for next Saturday, October 29th? ...

    What If Taking A Test Was Like Racing?

    In another RaceNY thread, I complained about a race car driver that intentionally brought out a yellow flag.  I thought he should have been immediately disqualified.  A supporter (or maybe the driver himself) attempted to rationalize his actions.  I responded that racing isn?t always fair and...

    ROC vs AMPS

    Fellow RaceNY readers and posters, Collectively, many of you surprise me (to put it nicely).  You often express the most conservative political beliefs and then quickly turn around and complain about or condemn our free enterprise system and the resulting impacts.  I just don't understand...

    Race of Champions 200 vs. Modified 100

    Having attended both the Race of Champions 200 at Chemung and the Modified 100 at Wyoming County, I was wondering why the 100 lapper was so much more exciting.  Both events occurred on Sunday afternoons with exceptionally nice weather.  Both tracks are about the same size (1/3 and/or 3/8 mile)...

    What is a 370 Modified?
