From the 'WHO'......Lyrics from:

"Won't be Fooled again"

"Meet the new Boss...Same as the Old Boss !!"

No 'VP Director of Short Track Operations', no "Director of TRACK PR", no corporate heads, just a short track paying a whole lot of money !!

"Clash at the Can " paid $8000 + to the winner, Billy Decker !

Winner of the "GOBRECHT MEMORIAL" WON $7000 !

Winner of the Mitch Smith Memorial won $10,000 not $300 !!

Look at what Fonda, another short track paid  $9500!!

"What it Was"

I recently sent a message to Scott Pacich commenting about "Where racing went wrong". Scott picked up on it , added his racing memories, along with his father's racing endeavors, and came up with this column........

GENESEE SPEEDWAY

Brad Mesler and Kyle Inman Dominant at Genesee

 

Brad Mesler, of Wellsville, NY, captured his first win at Genesee nearly a year to-the-date of his last feature victory in Batavia. 

Mesler led all 20 laps to become the division’s fifth different winner this season.

Kyle Inman (20K) battles to the inside of Ray Bliss Jr. (27JR) for second place in the 20-lap Sportsman Feature.  Once taking the spot away,

Inman would run down Ryan Susice for the lead just after halfway and run to his third straight victory at the 1/3-mile oval.

Tommy Kemp (28), needed just three wheels to battle back to finish in second in the 360 Late Model Feature, won by defending champion Dave DuBois.
