The drivers may be mad because the Frosts are running it like they should. Like to see you try to run something like a race track with a few cheating ones that try to take people out and all get mad. Only thing I see wrong is they are giving in to the brown nosing ones out there and that just isn't far. Everyone should be treated equal. A little bumping will happen but when it is so obvious they are trying to take someone out I think they should be blackflagged. That is what it is for but it is never used. It is happening in ALL the classes.

With all the rain we have had what do you expect!!! They bitched when the Gibbsons had it and now the bitch with the Frosts. You know you can't make everyone happy. Probably the ones that are cheating and got into trouble. The Frosts are doing a good job for there first year. Give them a chance. You know should be glad we have a track!! You are someone that maybe goes to the races once a year or is mad cause there is no beer or coolers. Sorry but I think it is great. I can take my kids out there and enjoy it without smelling beer all night.

It's the same ole story. They let cars race knowing they have illegal parts. They made the 55 move up because of a illegal steering quikener yet they let someone else run in that same class with one. When pointed out to them Guy said "I know". but still lets them run in that class. A car that is running off and leaving the others every night it doesn't raise any suspection. I guess they figure, man they got real good in one week. They only check the cars one time and don't check them again. I guess it's not possible they could change a motor, transmission, carberator or anything else in only one week. Have they even checked wheel base? The frosts are trying, I give them credit for that. It's the official's not paying attetion to and staying to the rule's that is the problem. as far as the track prep just my oppinion just a little less water but I'm no expert. Keep up the effort Dexter and Doyle you are trying and the crowd is getting better this year. But Guy do your job and check the cars for all rules and if someone suddenly gets real good at least out of curiosty check for infractions don't make someone claim. That only makes the racer's do your job for you.

For those of you that think the races are so much better now that beer is no longer allowed, it's stupid that's part of it being an American sport, why don't we just take hot dogs away from the baseball games. Not that I care much bc for one I don't go to our races and for 2 I don't drink but really I think it's stupid

You guys are blowing it draging out the races untill 1 oclock in the mourning and still not finishing the event ain't good why let a mod feature drag out for an hour I probably won't be back to what and alot of others said they tried to support the track but getting tired of it

One of my biggest beefs is the gates NEVER OPENING ON TIME. The gates are scheduled to open at 5:30 pm. Well you get there 15 or 20 minutes early so you can get in line and your not sitting 2 blocks back in a long line. Then it is 15 minutes or longer past the scheduled time for the gates to open before anyone even comes up there to open them. You have to stand out in that hot blazing sun for a long time and it can make a person start to get a little PISSY. Plus by this time you have alot of people lined up waiting to get their arm bands and draw a number. You need time to check your tire pressure, get your car unloaded and anything else you need to do. And hopefully have some time to relax before having to go to the drivers meeting. If they are running too late then they start rushing the drivers. The racers know when the gates are scheduled to open and we plan our day around being at the track on time so we can be ready to go. The least I think they could do is to be up there on time to open the gates. Plus it would make things flow smoother for them and for the drivers. Also I have been out there when there has been big races and you have racers from out of town, you should hear some of the comments they make about this subject. Guys you really need to get your act together on this.

Why is all the workers quiting down there. All but the Hollingsheds which they should of been the first to go. Haven't been in a while just because of them I know nothing will change as long as they are there. Get rid of all of them and it will be one fine track.

Get rid of Guy. He doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground. Car count thats all they care about. What would happen if the car count got lower because Hollingshad doesn't do his job out there. He wants the drivers or owners to claim. that only starts shit between the drivers and then guy doesn't have to do his job. Here is an Idea for you. Have a good and I repeat good Tech official that knows the rules do nothing but rome the pits every race checking for infractions. Just his presents will help keep everyone in check. And by the way GET RID OF THAT WORTHLESS LOUDMOUTH TOM HARRIS. frost's could make West Plains Speedway a better place for the fans and racers if they would clean some house.
