Once Again Race Fans Top Mother Nature

A couple of things today.
One, kudos to all the race fans that waited out a 40-minute rain delay at the La Crosse Speedway Saturday night.
Can't say the same for the folks at Mississippi Thunder Speedway, as rain washed out their Friday night program after the dirt track had been worked on all week. Forecast shows we could see racing again both Friday and Saturday night.
Second, I have not really used my blog to slam or dog on others as some other media outlets like to do when it comes to racing. I do love when others do this though, especially the ones that tell others how they need to drive though they have NEVER DRIVEN A RACE CAR BEFORE!
But today that changes a bit for me (but I won't tell you how to drive a line). During the rain delay Saturday night at La Crosse, I was wandering around talking to race fans when I overheard a conversation taking place, slamming the Outlawz Division.
The talks surrounded around who was driving what and why.
"Thunderstocks don't belong in that class because they are slow and suck," is what I heard.
I beg to differ ... greatly. Do you realize that if you take T-stocks out you would have a three-car show? Do you realize that it made Wayne Smith's job of trying to win due to his being sent to the back during the feature that much more entertaining to watch? Also, it's extra pay for Thunderstock drivers.
Like usual ... if you don't like it, get a car and add it to the class. Otherwise, how about thanking Chuck Deery and the Thunderstock drivers who put their cars out there every race, for you, the race fans. 
Next on the grocery list, besides bacon of course, is slamming a driver who gets a break in his driving career. Now we all know that times are tough, sponsorships are somewhat hard to get and racing can be expensive depending on the class and the time you take to build and maintain your race car. But when a driver gains the confidence of someone with money and connections, why dog the driver AND those sponsors for teaming together??!!?? I heard a group of people at the track specifically call out Brad Warthan and his new venture for a 2014 Sportsmen ride. Saying things like, 'I'm telling his sponsor what he's really like,' or, 'That idiot can't drive a Thunerstock, let alone a Sporty.'
And outright telling the main sponsor he was a fool? I was amazed. Jealousy maybe? Past bad relationships? I don't know. But when a driver gets an opportunity like that, why would you bash him/her? 
True race fans embrace new drivers, new competitors and the atmosphere of the moment. Wannabes? Well, either step up and get a ride and race or stuff your mouth with more brats because NO ONE WANTS TO HEAR IT! Now, onto the results portion of the program.
