Calm down Jr., no vacation is necessary.  You 're feeling your way around the big leagues right now and the sledding can be tough.  This game takes mental and pyhsical toughness.  Last night why couldn't anyone go after the leader after he snapped off a :54 half in the Hasty B race ?  look at what everyone else was doing there.  Watch replays.  When was the last time in the history of this sport an 18 year old came in on a "P" and dominated ?  I can't think of one.  soon you'll get your first win and get mobbed by your peers.  Patience is a virtue.  All good things come to those who wait.  If those fail, remember that the game is wide open starting tonight - NO TONY.  Ne cordial to all the owners and trainers and see what develops.  Hang in there.  TC

In the good old days you would have been able to get your experience at places like Quad Cities and Fairmount. It's a tall order to expect to drive in Chicago from the get-go and be successful.
Despite what TC and a lot of other have to say about the Chicago driving colony, they know it is the best in North America outside of the Meadowlands and Woodbine/Mohawk.

Perhaps you should consider at one of the lesser tracks in Michigan or Ohio until you've got your legs under you and are confident of your abilities.

...and despite Paul inferring I said that the drivers elsewhere are better than here ( other than the Big M -I see no scary talents in Canada), he's correct in that you face a tall order.  Each Hall of Famer put his pants on one leg at a time, just like you do, so keep on course, stay focused and positive, and you'll be fine.  I'll see you soon.  TC

im thinking about taking a vacation because for some reason nothing is sick that i drive and most of them get good trips and going nowhere. i let marsh in front of me for strategy. i thought he would pull and give me some cover down the backside so when i tried to flush him out, he stayed in so i stayed in like r.bob told me to. in the last 2 weeks i've picked up drives from 4 different trainers and have picked up 4 owners to train for. those of you who doubt me can tell me what you think to my face instead of *** it up on this forum.
P.S. RTP, you're pretty much hated by everybody on the track for talkin the shit that you do on here. its a good thing many people dont know who you are b/c you'd be in for quite a few asswhoopings.
       young one your a bigger goof than I thought if you can take critism ! I've heard all those excuses from drivers before . if they told you to not let anybody go , you had to follow instructions . so be it ! but as far as your inbred comment on asswhoopings . I'm easy to find . I stated my opinion and thats what this forum is for . your going to get more critism as time goes on , so get use too it , thats part of your chosen job . you wont get anymore from me . now please no asswhoopings by so many that hate me ! but remember one thing young man asswhoopings go both ways .  and leave it at that !            RTP

Junior,

I thought everybody knew who RTP was.  Hell -- I've never met him, and I know who he is and where he sits.

I know you'll get a tough mount every once in awhile, but in life -- you're better off just saying "I'll do better next time" learning from it and moving on.

Best of luck!

EW

Be careful who you offer those asswhoopins to Wink

i unlike most people can take critisizm. i dont have a problem with anybody around here. EW, i have more than 1 bad horse to drive every once and a while. that is what i am here for. i take the horses that the top drivers dont want to drive. RTP, maybe i'll see you tonight and try to make dues. im not trying to whoop anybody's ass, just passing along word. i know this forum is for critisizm etc. i try to take the critisizm but bashing me for doing what i was told is something different. i take advise people give me and use what i think is good advise. i listen to what my trainers tell me to do and i do it. plans change sometimes but for the most part i do what they tell me.

Strong response.  You'll be alright man -- it's tough driving 5th/6th/7th choices all the time -- but you've been putting them close.  People will take notice.

Have you given any thought to trying a smaller circuit?  I know this is home, but even with Tony leaving, it's still darn tough.

Best,
EW

            I apologize for upsetting you . sometimes constructive critism goes a long way . I really hope you do well . like I said before the fans need new blood . again under the circumstances you explained you had to do what the trainer wanted and I'm sorry I jumped to the wrong conclusion's  .

        Rod Jr. may be good in the future. But the future is not now. He is still green and was given a license waaaay to soon. He needs to go back to qualifiers and learn not to pull out of 2 or 3 holes on the likes of Mike Oosting or Dave Magee.  When this happens the betting public gets screwed and a young talent that is rushed into something can be ruined for life. Believe me I know. Wink

...nice 2nd tonight for Horvath Industries behind Artie's Wiper at 15/1.  Could this be the omen of good fortune and a great 30+ year ride to near-greatness.  We'll see, but GOOD JOB in the meantime.  TC
