when a car does a slide job and is three quarters of a car ahead of the car they are passing and the passed car never lets out of the gas it causes a maylay and a pile up like you described. So in my eyes if anyone is to blame I feel it is Arin McIntosh she was passed and Dickie was clearly taking the spot away from her and instead of lifting like a good driver would she left her foot on the the throttle and caused what you saw last night. As for dirty driving that's not what got him in the boat he was in learn the facts first.

:angry-smiley-007: I also don't believe that the car owners were laughing at what had been done to the cars on the track from what I hear the name calling and the rudness of the people around them was totally uncalled for if you've got a problem with the driver of the car yell at him not the person in the pits that pulls the car there, they don't drive it dickie does.

Good job Josh. I wish I was there to see your win but we were in Flora.

It was a very sad situation at Paragon. Arin McIntosh ran second for twenty laps and it looked like Dickie's frustration that caused him to drive into her causing the big multicar pile up in a very good competitive race. Arin is one of the smoothest and cleanest consistant drivers on the track. Doug Heck and Chase Stockon lost cars in flipping down the front straightaway. Chase's car was the first night out after a bad night with the other car at Haubstadt last week. This is not a comment to start anything, just the way I saw the situation. Dickie was the one disqualified by Kieth Ford for rough driving, but it does not replace the torn up race cars.

The wreck was crazy!!! I'm not placing blame on anyone but holy moly I was suprised everyone got out unharmed. The crowd was pissed they were yelling some very choice words at Dickie under the red. It was the fastest track I have been on yet. I wish the track was like that every weekend.

Chase had two GRP frames, but enough equipment for one car. The bar chassis was torn up at Haubstadt last Sunday. Chase's dad put the Saturday night car together this week with a new body and paint scheme. It was pretty well trashed in the flip, but in talking to him today he feels he can salvage enough parts to be at the last race at Paragon. The frame was not that bad. The problems of a blue collar racer, but there is alot of racer at Paragon that understand that. Chase is still leading the points.
