Had a great time at TVS this weekend, made both mains and finished both races. Didnt do as well as I wanted 7th in the 300 and 8th in the 500 but it was a fun time. The place is nice and huge! Nice place to race, had 15 racers in both classes, a little controversy over one car dampend things temporary but things got back on track. I know there were posts here giving one side of the story but there are always two sides.. Decisions were made and people made choices and the race went on. It was a very long process, Qualifiing , heats , last chance heats and mains, then picures raffles and it was over 2:15 am ! Lots of fun but a very long day as I got there at 7am. Thanks to Jeff for putting on the event and to the sponsors who donated prizes. Oh and congratulations to Danny Richards from Georgia for winning Both thr 300 and the 500!

To all that came and raced with us here at Tennessee valley speedway thank you! really enjoyed having you guys!  The racing was awesome very close finishing in both classes. 

 

Congrats to Danny richards for his wins in both classes and to JC Martin for giving Danny a run for his money. They went back and forth for the lead the whole race with Danny just barley edging out jc for the win in the 300.

 

The racing was also close in the 500 with Danny edging out JC for the win.

 

I want to apologize for any issue we had with the rules! We tried to run rules between 3 different tracks and it did not work so well that was my mistake and for that I am sorry!! Going forward we will be running my rules at Tennessee valley speedway.

 

As for the products that were raffled off were things that our sponsors gave instead of cash for the purses I put up the money for the purse those products were to help towards the purse!! That being said it was not me getting greedy. I believe that the raffle went good 5 dollars was a great price for a chance to win a 189.99 dollar controller and for a 140.00 dollar nascar jacket 1 dollar for a 60.00 pro-track chassis raffled twice also 2ea H&r chassis.

 

All and all I believe everyone still had a good time!! Cant wait to do it again!

Rules were posted pretty clearly above. You should have used them.

I would not recommend this event to anyone. Rules will change and the day will take forever.

I was told Friday we couldnt true the tires. Sometimes people just make up the rules as they go...lol

I guess its all in how you read the rules and the spirit of the race, The rules i read didnt give me the thought that I could relocate guide tounge and run tiny tires on one side and big ones on the other or offset the body to inside or cut out all brass out under rear axle. Seems others had the same understanding being before race 15 cars were laid chassis up on the counter and they all looked the same except one that was clearly built completely different from the other 14 cars which several racers took offense too.

Funny how it passed tech from the tech man and owner to get to that point.

Why would a person not try to offset a car for an oval?

Where in the rules does it say you can not?

Welcome to oval racing David. Everyone there will be offsettting their cars now. I have been doing this since my very first oval race many years ago. The winner did offset his car a ton with weight. I just did it with my body.

Will you had the opportunity to do the right thing for all! You choose to leave instead.you knew that chassis being offset was not legal here or the tracks in your area. That being said when do plan on paying for your parts that you ran a tab on. I understand that you sold it all

How much was my tab exactly? I tried to give you those 4 motors back and you sat them in my box. You knew you had done me wrong and was trying to save face. I spent $200 cash on Friday. Let me know if I owe anything else and I will gladly pay.

The racers are still waiting on the second difalco you promised to give away.

Rick Crutchfield was standing right next to me when you told me to keep the motors.

I will pay for the motors (even though you begged me to keep them) when you give away the 2nd controller you promised.

Will the whole matter of the rules was that we was told that we was running nashville rules. cant put all the blame on jeff there was 9 guys from nashville that ran there and we all was going to leave if you was allowed to run that car that would have left 5-6 people to run both classes. it was offset so was some the other cars but your car had more issues than the off set guide and chassis the rear motor braced had been changed and so on. this is why jeff said IF IT IS NOT MENTIONED IT IS NOT LEGAL!

 
but i agree there needs to be rules and them to be enforced rules stated no paper interiors in the 500 but the man who won had a paper interior.the same man won the 300 didnt have a complete interior but it was deemed legal. wirte some rules and we will go by them but dont let people slide buy. and the impound wasnt enforced for the locals.

I understand Chris. I was never told about Nashville rules until after tech was completed. I dont run Hardbody much other than at redlight and I ran those cars weekly there.

I only went off of what was printed here.
