The car is on another planet most nights! Just as Schatz's car is. Today's drivers don't win if the car isn't set up like a slot car. Not to say the drivers aren't good, of course they are. But today's car has eliminated the pure driver being able to carry a car to victory.

REALLY?  Schatz had the front axel shoved back about 6 inches and the front of the frame was all bent up after the hitting the 4 car (who had just blown up and stopped right in the groove) just last week.  With 11 laps to go on the restart he drove away from the field.  How is that not carrying a car to victory?

The 21 and 15 were on the gas hard, unfortunately we only saw some 15 on the live feed but the 21 most have been on fire as well.  When Monteith makes one of his charges it's worth the price of admission right there, doesn't always end well but it sure makes the race.  Gravel was gone, nobody was close all night from what my fading memory remembers....

Someone posted that Gravel came from 7th. That is incorrect. He started on the pole.



Check the date on that post; it wasn't about Gravel's win at Lincoln.  This thread was started in April regarding another of his wins and picked back up after last night (5/17).

The WoO format is pathetic.  Never passed a car all night long.  In the meantime, both Schatz and Montieth were coming in a hurry.  One caution of any sort and odds are you have a different winner.



Their actually were a couple of cautions in the beginning.are you saying that he only won because he didn't have to pass cars??

think their was a caution in the heat race or dash as well. It just was his night. He sure passed a lot of cars in the A main. 

 

How would you You like the format to go. Posse in the Front outlaws in the back??

Did he dab again? 

If he can get away with dabbing still, I'd also like to see The Dougie, Stanky Leg, Lean Back, ChaCha Slide, Running Man, The Urkel, Boot Scootin' Boogie, Macarena, The Hustle, Watusi, Mashed Potato, Hand Jive, Rumba, Foxtrot, The Charleston, Slow Drag, and the Cakewalk.

Anyway congrats to the #5!

Gravel had the best car last night.  People can say what they want about Schatz and Montieth charging which was fun to watch, but neither of them timed well enough to start close to the front in their heat race which put them behind the eight ball.  That seems to be the story for Montieth every time he runs a WoO race.  Time like crap, charge from the back in the feature.  Gravel left the field in lapped traffic.  Dietrich was better than Pittman, just didn't get through lapped traffic well enough

The tale of two seasons: it's all good now , but in 6, maybe 8, weeks (or 6-8 hours) it will all be about the 15 car.

How many times did the 11 car look rather ordinary until mid-July?
