This topic has and will be a heated debate for many for years to come. Look at the Dog's enduro's. They are not your typical gut and run car. So why is Hudson any different? This just proves that it isn't because of the "17E" that people are not coming. People are not coming for other reason's.
Webber needs to have a 700.00 to win enduro once a month, bring people in from other tracks in hopes they take a liking to how Hudson. Make a reason for people to come try Hudson.
For those who are complaining about not being fast enough, GET A BETTER CAR! I drove a black golf 2 door with nothing but a good set of tires and I would be battling with Jesse in the 17E. Doesn't take much for someone to be competitive, you can't compare a 90HP motor to a 140hp integra motor. Look what cars are dominating and go get one. If you need help I would be more than happy to assist you! Just for the record, Jesse is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. If you have questions about his car, go ask him!

If you all have such a problem with the 17e winning so much,then come this weekend with your car and race him! the more there is the more competition it'll bring to him. Even the slower cars with no chance of winning could help stop his winning streak by getting in the way and whatnot.Make it difficult for him and make it interesting out there.Oh,and stop complaining about the turnaround! if it's so unsafe and you REALLY don't care about winning like you're just racing for "FUN"...then there shouldn't be any reason why you cant just driver slower and more careful out there. The only reason the 17e is winning so much is because you babies wimp out and cry to this site about how unfair the track is. Grow up guys, seriously!

Recon XXX is onto something. We can bring back the enduros of old by getting lots of cars to the track. With fields of 40+ it starts to get difficult to manage high HP cars and you can't always hug the line you want so superior handling cars won't always cut it either. Lets all round up our enduro friends and convince them to bring their cars out this weekend. Every car counts, let's get em out there! See you all at Hudson this weekend!

I'm glad so many of you like my baked goods! Thanks for the comment that I should sell them (I didn't know they were THAT good). =) Unfortunately, it's hard to find time during the week just to make the couple batches of cookies/cupcakes that I do make. Making enough to sell would be pretty difficult for me. Cookies this weekend... I'll try to do cupcakes again next weekend.
To John (about the oink girl)... Most likely nobody on here is keeping up to date on her relationship status besides you, so just ask her!

To tell you the truth it is getting a bit boring with only a few cars every race. I just wait for someone I know (Scotty or my other car orange XXX) to catch up and race with them. I know I can't run with a few of the "fast" cars but I dont care how built up the cars are if there were more cars it would not matter. Try running a 400H.P. "race car" with 75 to 150 other cars the odds even up pretty quick. My cars have run many Howlers the black Monte won the Howler last year. They are very cheap cars. The Monte burnt 5 quarts of oil during the 100 lapper. The only way to keep things fair is to get more cars to run. All the track is trying to do is keep it interesting. I dont have a solution but I do know "staying home" won't help. Maybe the guys with a problem should get together and talk to Bob W. he is very easy to talk to and would love to hear some ideas.

Jesse's red 17E car was and always will be an enduro car. The only reason he ran it in the roadrunners was because the enduros were lacking and thats where most of his friends went to race. The car does not have a full cage or a fuel cell and has run in the halloween howler, how many roadrunner cars can say that?

does anybody know if oink has aboyfriend because I love her
07-15-2010 10:12:24 AM CST
Here's an idea: If you are one of the slower enduro cars complaining about being too slow in either direction, SMASH the cars that are faster than you. Take em out on the way by! That will get them thinking about running their big money cars in the enduros, and it will give the fans something to cheer about. Gotta level the playing field somehow, right? Give em the chrome horn! After all, these are enduros we're talking about right? Its the car that ENDURES that is supposed to win. But please stay safe. :P

07s girl, I think you should make cupcakes agian I had like 5 of them they, were good.
07-15-2010 8:40:37 AM CST
i agree with that. everyone at the track is willing to give you advise and lead you in the right direction. and if people want to race, they should be doing some saftey work on the car(cage, seat, harness ect.)

Theres a good # of new roadrunners. Alot has changed in the past few weeks. When are you coming back?

Turning the enduros around hasbeen happening for a LONG time. It's sole purpose was to sort out cas that had modified their set-ups to turn left only. This gave the people with true enduro cars (stock suspension) a fighting chance since tech was not always able to notice the modifications. Even cars with alot of power are immediately at a disadvantage if they are set up to turn only one way. Is it unnerving at first? Absolutely. Most of my wins in the truck division were when they turned us around. The first time I ran full tilt into turns 2-1 at Star was a hayride! The truck would hop, then bite & go!It can be done, and I personally do not think it is any more unsafe, provided you have at least some protection in the vehicle ( cage, or bars, & a good race seat with a good harness) If everyone decides to stay home, it only puts another nail in the box to end affordable racing. If everyone is that concerned, talk to Mr. Webber and tell him of your concerns. But EVERYONE has to be on the same page. And, if you do all run left only, DO NOT COMPLAIN if you are getting beat by someone else who's setup is better thought out than yours.Do your homework & try things to improve it. Work on your cars whenever you can. Talk to other racers, especially the guys who have been building or racing cars for a while. They know alot of little, inexpensive things to help, and most, if not all of them, are more than happy to pass the info. along. Especially at Hudson International. Great bunch of people!

There's more drama on here than on an episode of The Hills. Less complaining & MORE RACING!
THANK YOU to the drivers who show up every week & have fun! To the ones who complain about everything...maybe you should consider another hobby or another track.

Enduros is for fun. its a place to learn. if we had the money to go race road runner every week we would. its that simple. Only my second year of racing so i believe that id still fall under the learning part aswell. the 2nd enduro was really good. outside the 17e dominating we had 13 cars on the track i think and some really good racing for position. 17 didnt even win that cause i think a tire went flat. From there, the counts have been dropping. I want to race this weekend at hudson. i love the track win or lose i have had fun there at every enduro since the first one of last year. However if someone dont come on here or make a posting threw facebook or the front page of the website that we will be going left and left only then unfortunatly i will choose to spend the day with friends else where. and it looks like there are about 6 or 7 more cars that feel the same way.

I can count just on here 7 cars that are not coming to Hudson speedway for enduro races because of the dispute over the direction. Pats car has been sold and I have been told that the new owner is NOT running in the enduro races with it. that would really only leave the 17e as a road runner racing. What he has done is build a car to race Road runner with and just go out and have fun, while his fast car sits in wait for the enduro race. It sucks but he has exploited a loop hole in the rules to let himself race and claim win after win. It has nothing to do with me not winning. I can tell you that I have never won a race in my life on the track. That dont bother me at all. i race for fun. It is not fun anymore running right. There is no set up, you cant out run faster cars with handling. I run a car with 92HP out of the box and I can beat civic's and acuras and nissans because i know how to set up a car to beet them guys threw the corners. Running the reverse direction makes that impossible. You cant overcome 30HP with out set up.
question on flags
