Just got a note from Don Flanders. He is once again donating $500.00 to the top 360 in this Saturday nights Amsoil USAC/CRA Sprint Car main event. Thank you Don!

Just how many 360's have won a USAC main event at Perris?

Every true fan can do something. Find the CAR OWNER of any team you want to support and slip them a $5 to whatever each of you can afford. In order to get to WE, we need a lot of I's to do what they can!

People are crying about low car count, and here, Don steps up and provides some serious "incentive" for the "Hot" 360's that think their fast enough to beat all the other 360's that come out to race with the fast USAC 410's. It's Don's way to get more cars for everyone else to ENJOY. Thanks Don.

Hopefully I'll be able to get my engine back from the repair shop layaway Dept. to come race again Sat.

Im just saying that the 410 guys are hurting maybe a increase of $500 in the the purse would bring one or two more 410's im not at perris to watch 360's cal im there to watch 410's if i wanted360's i drive 40 min to ventura i think what mr flanders is doing is great i was just asking a simple question and i have never seen a 360 kick a410 at perris in a main

I won a CRA heat race in a 360 at the pas a couple of years ago with the restrictor plate in.. Someone who didn't hold their breath for 20 corner entrances might have been able to put together a good run come main event time. Just have to hold a little longer into the corner to make up the difference in straight away speed.. Piece of cake, right? Haha.. On the right night with a medium tacky track one of the heavy footed youngsters could do it if they could keep it off the wall. But 60 corner entrances is an awful long time to keep laser focus not to slack off no matter how young you are. You can forget about it if you can't run that hard and breathe at the same time..

Josh, I thought I was posing a rhetorical question to SprintFan86! Sorry about that! I was even there when you won but I didn't know you had a 360! Still, what Don is doing is great to encourage the 360's to come out with the 410's! We just need about 50 more of him! Give what you can! I know I get more out of the races then my $20 admission ticket costs! Joe

One racer that put his name on the map racing a 360 against the 410's is Danny Sheridan when he nearly won the main event at Santa Maria.

what really doesnt make sense to me is why throw the money at the 360s to come run with the USAC 410s when the USAC 360s have a race this weekend at hanford. I could see the bonus for 360s if there wasnt a 360 race anywhere this weekend but you could be keeping 360s from running with 360s so they go run with the 410 series... great gesture by mr flanders all n all just not right IMO...

Kart Racer,

Put up some money of your own to help the 360 Drivers that go up to Hanford! Who cares about the who, why or the where! Mr Flanders is the one putting up the money and he can do so where he chooses to do so! I think it is great that he does this and in the end, its his money! How anyone can say that is not right is just beyond me!

Garret Hanson set fast time at Ventura in a 360 and damn near won that race against the 410s.

With all the goddamn bitching I would keep my $500 in my pocket. Talk about looking a gift horse in the mouth. Disgraceful.

Its not your money, in my world you dont get an opinion on where I spend my money. I or in this case Mr. Flanders earned it. He can spend it where he wants. 500 Tacos, 500 cokes, I dont care. Its his money.

The appropriate response is...

Thank you Mr. Flanders, another very kind contribution towards making the race weekend better. I really appreciate what you are doing for sprint cars in Southern California.

You know, this seems to be such a long drawn out lean time we have been going through. I think we should all count our blessings that we even have sprint car racing happening. There are plenty of businesses that have just plain disappeared, and it isn't going to be better for some time it would appear. But the best thing any of us can do is "Go To The Races". So often we see on these message boards on a Saturday night, "Any updates from the PAS" or the like. It is too many people watching from the message board and not enough from the grandstands. Trust me, I am no better in ways. I do not get to my local tracks enough, and I am only able to get to the PAS a few times per year from up here in NorCal, but we the race fan need to assist to keep this sport alive. Bring a friend to the track. Bitching about not enough purse isn't the answer. Make the purse bigger by putting "Butts in the Seats" is the only answer.

I know, this will piss some off, but facts are facts.

Joe,

Obviously you dont know who i am but i dont ever write to half the stuff on here because you get people that dont read a whole comment through like you just did. Did you miss the part where i said he can do what he wants with his money?? Im saying to throw money at 360s to keep 360s from racing with the 360s so they keep the 410 count up on a 360 race date aint right. Giving away his hard earned money to sprint car racing is fantastic. I could see doing it when there is no 360 race anywhere to get a few extra to come but oh well

Doug

P.S. i should clarify when i say not right at the end i meant it as where its given to considering the circumstances but its his money and he does what he wants and that is awesome he chose to support sprint cars!

Well since you dont have a last name with your post, you are correct I havent got a clue who you are! Irregardless, I stand by my statement! I applaud Mr Flanders, he is a stand up guy that puts his money out so the car owners have a chance to earn some extra cash to put some cars on the track for us to enjoy!

Great Guy! PERIOD!

The 360s running at the PAS rarely if ever run with the USAC WC 360s.
