Speaking of people pulling out of AI, rumor has it that Hoover is not planning on running next year. Can you comment?

I found that on the http://www.tainternetleague.com/ in the general discussion. There are actually two different series I think.

One

two

As far as Griggs pulling out of AI, I'm just a big dumb mechanic/fabricator, I don't have those answers. I know I am going to Fontana for the season opener with two customer cars, but only Bruce knows if he is going. Guy is not racing a full season this year because he is all out of money and energy.

Wink AI

Hey Tone, Cant really say if he is going to run this year. We have never fixed the cut fuel line yet from VIR yet. The way eveyone is passing the "smack" I wouldnt blame if he didn't run! Shugg is still being introduced as the 2002 winner and the man who should have won in 2003 because we cheated all year. It seems eveyone thinks we are still over H.P. but we dynoed more than any other car in AI east. No we are not running two boxes to switc to a smaller chip. If so Mark would not have had to help with our ignition problems at Summit. So in closing??????????????

Jay, I have to say that your post sounded like a bit of a whine to me. The way I see it since y'all think that Shugg is still the poster boy for AI is that not perfect motivation for Hoover to come back and win again finally putting to rest all those accusations of funny business?

that is if he can win....I hear that there are some serious cars coming out of the woodwork looking to be the top dog in AI.

Question What If?

I think he should put a set of fat tires on, pull the exhaust off, take the weight out, strip the car and kick some AIX butt. Looking at finishing orders and times we could have won aix by a larger margin than we did Ai. Just a thought though!

It is not about Shugg because we all know he will always be our sexy poster boy. It is about winning fair and square and some people still trying to discredit us all.

I think you will find that whenever someone is successful (especially in motorsports) people tend to start talking about cheating. I suspect it always has been -and most likely always will be -that way. If you know your car is "right"...who cares what anyone else thinks.

We are all into this racing thing for the fun...the adrenaline..the speed...the racecraft. But most importantly (especially at the AI level) we are in this for the camaraderie. Let's not lose focus of that in 2004. Deal?

That Shugg guy is an overrated, no-drivin sum-bich.

Dude - people respect the Hoov. I appreciate the fact you love me more than Hoov and thank you for that Jay , but everyone knows Hoov won. No one can take that away from you - ever. Well... at least until next year. heh heh...

Don't sweat it dude. If a man is measured by his friends, than Hoov is king. You're a good man Jay - try not to let a little rain drown you out.
