Bowman Gray Stadium - Street Stock (07.09.11)
The very controversial and emotional 104.1 WTQR Street Stock race from
Bowman Gray Stadium on July 9th, 2011. Billy Gregg (98) turns Matt Cotner
(27) from the lead and Cotner eventually retaliates on Gregg. Not to be
the only headline, David Sumner (1) gets taken out of the lead, but takes
his frustration on out eventual race winner John McNeal (99).
A positive note is rookie sensation John Holleman IV had his career best
finish of 2nd place.
How NOT to drive a dirtcar
This is from my helmet cam. 05 July 2008. Airport Speedway Springfield, MO.
I had just blown out the RF shock, too hard compound tire, and track was
slick on the top side.
Worst Figure 8 Crash @ Slinger Super Speedway Ever!!!!! 9/11/2011
This is a video of the worst figure 8 Crash Ever @ Slinger Super Speedway.
Ryan Lovald just bought Shane the Shark Beckers car and this was the first
race racing that car. Ryan Lovald hit Rick Bruskiewicz right behind the
Right Front Tire and Ryan Rolls. BOTH DRIVERS WALKED AWAY. You can here a
scream right as the hit happens. That was Nicki, Ryans Fiance. You can see
a black smoking dot to the right of Ryans car as well that is his motor,
the motor came out of the car. Ryan was wearing his INTERSECTION CONNECTION
shirt he just made up as well. That was a connection. Ryans knee was
hurting and Rick had a small cut. What happened with me in the race was
going into turn 3, Bill Shavlik ran into me and knocked my car into neutral
which you will here on the in car camera video, I then tried to move up the
track to get out of the way and Scott Goetzke was going around me which I
didnt see, We joked before the race about hitting eachother and me getting
even from the beginning of the year, I never knew he was there. He then
slammed me a few times before spinning out and hitting the rollover ramp. I
would have done the same thing to him if the tables were turned there so I
understood why he hit me back. I then pulled up next to him at the start
finish line. We talked and I explained what happened in my car. Scott
understood and we shook hands. No big deal there. Its funny now cause
everyone thought myself and Scott were fighting but we were really just
talking about what actually happened and getting on the same page. I want
to thank everyone that was a fan of the cop car. I will most likely not be
driving it next year and it is sold. I know pretty much everyone just likes
the car and doesnt even know who I am so you will be happy to know it will
be coming back as the cop car next year, just with a different driver. It
was a blast and I might do this again in the future but for now I'm done. I
want to thank my sponsors that have been with me from the beginning of me
racing. Guerndt's Bar in St. Lawrence, Keiths Marina, Kettle Moraine
Properties (Bob Hart) P.W. Walsh, Race and Street Graphics and Daves Lanes
of Hartford. Figure 8's are a blast and it is a testament to the safety
equipment in race cars that with a wreck like what happened in this video,
they can walk away. Thank You again.... Brandon Wolf.
Retaliation - Is it really worth it?
