Track really need to really take a look at the track for garbage and clean it up.  No less that a dozen flat tires last night.  Most of them were cut, some of them pretty bad.

The surface has been a joke for some time now!....nothing has change and until they wake up over there it will continue to be junk.

You and I both know that but we get ripped for saying so.  Tonight I am sure will really be a slip n slide show.

That is a cross I will bear proudly!  Slip and slide is what they have most Saturday nights.....unless it rains on raceday.

Bar none....they have the worst surface in Central PA.  

I was talking to someone this morning that went over and they have been going every once in a while....they said same old Port Royal and it wasn't a compliment.

Why do drivers say it is so good? Think they may know more than a guy on computer. B,Brown said next best track to Knoxsville. But what do drivers know. HAHA

B. Brown also said all PA are very slow and black and dry.   Then he caught himself and took it back right away.   What you say first is really what you mean and feel......just saying!

Other than the flats last night they had the track surface good/not great last night.

Wait until tonight when you have a slip and slide all night long.  They need to get a clue on how to prepare that surface!

I see you can't handle the truth.....like always!!

The drivers and crews love it because they can put in there feature setups in the heat races and only tweak the car a little for the features.  It isn't hard to figure out.  LOL!  

Go and enjoy your slip and slide tonight.  I will be at a friends house watching a movie and that will be better entertainment than going to the races at the slow palace.

Just because you speak it doesn't make it truth. It is just your opinion. Truth & fact are things that are no matter if you believe in them or not. 2+2=4 is a fact, earth eas a round/sphere shape is a fact, H2O is water is a fact. You can choose not to believe these, but it's still true because they cannot be dissproved no matter what you believe.

Any & all track prep is subjective to opinion. Just because you don't like the prep doesn't mean that drivers, teams, and fans dont & vise versa. Hence ticket sales. So quit thinking your B.S is truth. It's just your opinion

The drivers and crews like it because they can put in there feature setup in the heat race and then just tweak the car.  That is a fact!  The fans must like dull racing if they go there.....that is not sprint car racing.  That is not an opinion that is a fact.  When you slip and slide around the corners that is asphalt racing not dirt racing......never was never will be.  

I will tell you another thing my late brother Morgan "who owned a very good business on muddy run road"  was all about Port Royal and I will gaurantee you this.  He would roll over in his grave if he saw how they were preparing that track today.

I guess when our drivers go somewhere like knoxville where they know how to prepare a dirt track they struggle.  You can say it is because they don't race there often.  That could be part of it but another part of it is they are used to racing on asphalt all night long here at some tracks in PA.   I don't care where they race but it seems like everytime drivers go out to a different track in another state they struggle bad.  They are not used to it being that wet at the beginning of the night.

Again none of that is fact at all. It's just you being a crybaby throwing a fit because the racing isn't how YOU want it. Fans don't pay money for dull racing. Especially continue to do so over time, they perceive it as good racing which is why they continue to go to. And drivers & teams like it because the driver can make a difference on a slick track. 

Boo hooo, waaa waaaa, you crybaby. You speak no facts just your same broken record tired ass annoying opinion that gets disproven week in & week out when more people on here & social media talk about how good Port was.

It is an opinion you simple minded narcissistic dipshit. Now go away. No one likes you and we have a great night of racing ahead.

All Facts!!  Sorry to disappoint you!  I started going to the races in 1982 and in todays racing they need to bring back the cushion.....don't run it in every chance you get.   The cars will move it up throughout the night.  That is a fact....the racing is better with a cushion.   Port is the Slow Palace.....

Facts!!  Yes, you have a night of racing at the slip and slide with cars sliping all over the place, because the track has no traction at all.   That sounds very boring. 

Here is another fact I will NEVER go to the Slow Palace as long as they prepare the track this way.

Strawser, I bet you the place will be packed tonight. 58 cars strong, you just want a 1 lane heavy track were nobody can pass and your white shirt won't get dirty. Give it a rest already. I thought you were never going back ? I seem to remember you saying that.

GOOD! Then keep your stupid ass at home and shut up about it. No one and I mean NO ONE cares what you think or where you go. This place is currently packed. There are more people than there are seats so your opinion (not to be confused with fact) is in the minority. Now sit at home, watch your lap times and shut the hell up.

I hate being on this side of the argument but almost 20 second laps on a skating rink is fairly Brutal in my opinion.  Maybe if they all  sharpen their skates between periods they can keep up with the rink....I've watched races from Port all summer and this sure appears to be the worst track conditions I've seen to date...

Sold out crowd and Steve O’Neal got promoter of the year for the third straight time by the Hall of Fame. I mean obviously it’s a shithole that nobody likes.

The track is definitely the worst they've had this year as far as any races I've attended but I'm sure they'll work at it as needed. It's making for some good racing now but it isn't gonna hang around all night unless they do some additional prep which they typically do. One things for sure, I'm having a hell of a lot more fun than Strawser is sitting at home bitching about lap times.
