I'm really surprised at the tone of this article.Especially coming from somebody that rarely wins,and isn't that great of a driver.

He’s right! What we do isn’t an entitlement so stop biotching about the cost of fuel, parts and cars, entry fees and race or don’t and sit home!

Speaking on a much smaller scale, and even though I don’t care what people do with their lives, I’ve seen racers not pay their light bill and go racing instead.

He`s right. Did you ever take a look at some of the cars that line up next to you and wonder if something is going to fall of their car and cause you to crash. Some of these people cant even do it half ass.

At the end of the article, people are posting comments.

I like this one:

If everyone who can’t afford to do the racing that they do, the turnout at the racetrack will end up pretty small.

Even the rich man needs the poor man to show up. Can't race without an opponent.

Bad ass.

I talk with Cruz on FB quite a bit. I follow his team. He's due for a win. They run killer, and don't explode parts into pieces.

Always in the thick of things. Top of the heap.

Kill the messenger! The guy tells the truth that the fans don't want to hear all of this whining. The whole country has become like a bunch of puppies whining in a box.

Whatcha gonna do when you're the minority in a libtard pedo drag queen story time world? It's coming.

The pedo's will be pointing at you laughing, while saying, look at these entitlement bottom feeders.

See how that works?

While I do agree with him, it's pretty rich coming from the guy that has a reputation of not paying bills for services rendered....

google up his restoration of his dad's old car...left quite a few people holding the bag on that deal

While I don’t disagree with you sentiment, the flip side is what happened with the previous ownership of our track. They did a crappy job, people complained. They were told their feedback wasn’t welcome, and the complaints stopped….and the car count fell off the face of the earth. It pays to listen to the customer.

Another ironic deal is this: top dragster top topic used to be how to get rid of the super comp cars out of top. Now they can’t fill fields in a lot of cases. Sometimes when we push for an elite club, you get one

Ball washer. Cruz and his brother both suck and should be on the other side of the wall looking in.

The very last thing I care about, is the attitude of a “Pro” racer. If it was left to he who has the most money, in racing, it would all be heads up. That’s what bracket racing was invented for. To give a place for anyone, to race and enjoy racing.


You have to put in the effort, to get anything out of it.
