Gravel diamonding turn 1-2 gave him amazing momentum down the back straight.

awesome run!!

after getting a late pill draw and qualifying  10th it shows that you Dont need to start on the front row in the dash to win Every Race. 

Good job. It was a fun race to watch

Entertaining main watching Gravel pound the cushion, especially in turns 1-2.  That's what makes Tulare one of our favorite tracks.

Great job by David. Wish we had something like that place in PA!


Of ALL hands-off WoO sprint car owners in history, 
only Smoke (maybe the best racer ever) has had the 
success Luna's Ford had and anything similar to it is 
outlawed! Hagerstown's Mopar powered track record is 
18 years old. Are we seeing the best?

Totally agree. Thunderbowl may be the most exciting track in the country. Never been there but I've watched a ton of videos from that place and it's beyond amazing. We do have some pretty exciting tracks in Pa if they're prepped right. Mainly, they just need to leave the damn cushion alone. Last year the Grove and Lincoln did get better toward the end of the year but Port Royal unfortunately still feels the need to hammer the living shit out of the outside of the track with push trucks anytime a little bit of loose dirt starts to collect. It's OK to knock the lip down a little to help widen the track out but I'll never for the life of me be able to figure out why the hell these tracks, Port especially, are hell bent on killing the top by beating it into oblivion.

Exactly!!  Tulare makes a driver matter because the top is fast and tricky. Car owners like lack of cushion because its easy on equipment but your post is what is preventing PA from becoming truly great.  Maybe the 69k pays someone off. Lol. It saves me a lot of money because I dont go back for a month if they spend the evening running down the top.

We may disagree 99% of the time but we definitely see eye to eye on that one. Hopefully Port Royal decides to bring back the excitement because last year was boring for the most part. It's a shame because otherwise, the place is awesome. Their track is usually in great shape. They don't need to hammer the shit out of the top because with the way they prep the track, it widens out on its own just fine but for some reason, they do and it just kills the surface. Williams Grove and Lincoln got much better throughout the 2nd half of the year last year. In fact, the Dirt Classic was one of the best races of the season in large part because they left the cushion alone. We got treated to a hell of a battle between Stevie and Dietrich as a result.

Yep!  What David did behind the wheel the first night is light years more impressive than Donny tiptoeing the just a little wee be faster the second night.  We should hang out some timeSmile

Watching the highlights from Friday gave me some hope for the future, Gravel looked like Larson out there. 

I know it's just one race, but it was really cool to see how he just created a new line for himself rather than just follow the leader.

I don't know....I think all tracks change over time, with the weather, etc.

My one visit to Tulare was for Trophy Cup a few years ago... not trying to be negative, but there were constant wrecks, even in hot laps. First nite, everybody was wrecking in Turn 3. Next nite, hump near track exit at Turn 1 was flipping cars constantly. 3rd nite, kind of "follow the leader" despite full inversion

Yellow flags are not that entertaining for me...

I know people love Tulare, I was really excited about full inversion (thats why i went!), they were deep in drought when I went, big rains probably improved things. I'd like to go back some day

Tulare is easliy on my top 3 list of most exciting tracks. 1/3 mile with alot of bank in the turns seems to be a great size/configuration. But not unlike every track I've ever been to, it has to be prepared correctly. My opinion, Saturday wasn't that great at all. When the first car hit the track for time trials I could tell it needed a little more water. Easy for me to say, I know. They worked the track 3 times if I remember correctly so kudos to them for trying to bring it back, they at least saved it from being poor all night. The heats were great. I give Donny credit for jumping up a lane when he did, that was the only chance he had and he capitalized.

Every track has good and bad days. That's just the nature of dirt. But taking push trucks or in the case of Port Royal the one time, a parade of fire trucks (seriously, you can't make this shit up) and beating the cushion down to a pulp, is completely different. I just don't understand why they insist on ruining a perfectly good track surface.

Unfortunately tracks differ from day to day.

I have to say watching the racing iFriday night was far more superior than watching the cars go around on Saturday night  like a episode of Thomas The Tank engine Train.  CHOO CHOO!!!!

Racing to me is passing cars like watching Sheldon run up from the back and a Gravel in 1 and 2.. That was some fun stuff to watch
