Does anybody know how Wayne Dadetto is doing today? I'm sure he is alittle sore. That was a hell of a shot he took last night. Did anybody see what happened? I caught a brief glimpse of what looked like the car hooking a nasty right right before it smacked the Armco barrier. Did he hit somebody or was it a parts failure or what?

Rear axle broke... He was fine after the accident, likely a little stiff today. He plans to be at Bedford tonight, weather permitting.

I didn't catch what happened. Do you know why he rolled it?
I wasnt there, just what I read on twitter.

No because next year if it doesn't rain it will be right back to the boring one lane around the bottom snooze fest.

Robbie jumped the cushion and the right side tires dug in. Looks like the front axle, bars, right front wheel hub and top wing were trashed. Not sure if the frame is bent. Robbie, his Grandfather, Dad and Stepdad worked until 3:00 am to get the car together to race Hagerstown. The frame was bent for the wreck he had at Lincoln on Saturday and just got in back Tuesday evening.
Sure could use better luck. Robbie's Grandfather is the car owner and foots all the bills with a little help from a few sponsors. I'm sure he would like some more sponsor help if he could get it.

You experts on next years surface might want to give the grove a call and help the track crew get things fixed before there is no next year.

Oh...and that might as well apply to Selinsgrove too...will Mother Nature save Sundays conditions?

Nope it will be dusty but racy like always, after a full night of action the day before it makes it harder, HTown puts out a **** poor track every year if it doesn't rain.

Remember it's a new group running the place now. I've only been there twice this year, but the tracks been good both times I was there and that's not counting this show.
