Q:

I would like to know what that metal flap was on the passenger side door by the window and what it was for.  Shawn Tucker had the same thing.  Thanks.

-Campbell Racing

A: Hi.  We wondered what that was on Tucker's car too and when I put the new body on the car before the Scotia Speed World race I found out.  Because the door sill was too wide and not up to technical specifications we had to put that flap to hinder air flow.  If you follow any of the bigger series you will know that much money and time is spent in the wind tunnels to create the perfect car body that will slice through the air.  Well, we do the same thing, however body rules differ from series to series and that is why the Carquest Pro Stock Tour officials directed us to put that metal flap on the car.  We can take it off when we run with the Pro All Star Series tour.

Thanks for writing.

Q:

Hey Wayne,

Just wondering why there is a CASCAR with the same sponsor, number, and paint? Don Sales drives it.

-Greg Marr

A: We are a member of the same racing team.  There are two CASCAR cars....in the west is Don Sales and in the east, Neil Fair and then there is our car in the Maritimes.  That is also why we changed our number from 44 to 33 so all our cars would look the same.

 

Thanks for writing.

Q:

I just finished watching the Parts for Trucks 100 at Scotia Speed World on
July 21st and my question is, Who so far is the hardest driver to pass and beat?

-Tim Terry

A: Hi Tim.  When it comes to passing it all depends on how good my car is, what
the track conditions are like and what position I start in and fall in on restarts.  If the setup on my car is not as good as another on the track then all I can hope for is luck to finish well.  We just experienced this as our car was extremely loose at the New Brunswick International Speedway Pro Stock 250 event.  There were several cars handling much better but do to luck and circumstance we were able to pull out a third place finish.

What I am trying to say is, if my car isn't handling well then many drivers
could be hard to pass and beat if they are working better.

Q: I would like to take the opportunity to say how well put together your web site is. I really enjoy looking at the pics of the early stages of your racing career. Also are you considering running the Pro All Star races at Scotia Speedworld this year. It was kind of disappointing to see show up with out the 44 at the IPSC race last year, because you probably would have won if you had. If you wouldn't mind, write me back if you could to tell me if Russell will be racing again this year, he has the best sounding car that I think I've heard so far.

-Jason Avery

A: Hi Jay.  Thank you for the positive feedback about our web site.  Did you know that my nickname is "Jay"?  We didn't enter the IPSC race last year due to restraints from our sponsor.  As far as we know Russell does not have a "ride" this year, however we intend on racing in the three extra events known as the "Pro All-Star Series" which will be taking the place of the IPSC races this year at Scotia Speedworld.  You can check out the dates and times by going to "Scotia Speedworld" in the links page of our web site.

 

Thanks for writing.
See you at the races!
