Southern Pride Will Get You Sentenced to Facebook Jail

I posted the above image on Thursday Evening on a Facebook Page called Kreepy Ass Krackers.  At around 3am (I was sleeping) the below message saying that she wanted it removed was sent. At 9 am I was put in Facebook Jail (can’t post) and that image was removed as “Hate Speech”.

What has our country become when Black Lies Matter or Liberal White Guilt have completely rewritten or eliminated history and Southern Pride? We long ago became a Socialist Civilization where Moochers electing Looters to penalize Producers overran the country, and now pure Bullshit Political Correctness have spineless people complaining to Nazis to stifle the most innocent of pride.

Joliet Race Report

Sponsor Report

Dave Schultz – August 4, 2015

Joliet2015-560To recap from last report, the Dave Duell Classic only made it through three rounds and the FX Shootout hadn’t started before the rain came. The race in Indy was totally rained out, and so this race in Joliet had that race plus the FX Shootout and the conclusion of the DDC.  I’d won rounds from my son, 00Joe Ewing and Knokowski in Bowling Green.  I believe I was in fifth place prior to this race.

So we were loaded up last Monday and left Tuesday, arriving at the track Wednesday at 3PM. The staging area from the pits was already pretty crowded. The pit gate opened at noon Thursday, we were assigned pits and 1PM and had the pit set up and my car tech’d in by three — when the beer light turned on.

11834732_10204585366489863_8129961487661763855_oFriday morning I got one Time Trial and then the first round of qualifying. I was too fast at 9.745 on a 9.75 Index. It was very windy — making it a challenge.

After lunch we ran the 2nd Qualifying — and I was again too fast. It was hard to predict the high wind gusts. After that the 4th round of the Dave Duell Classic started. I had a Bye. An hour or so later was the 5th round – and I was matched against Corky Bumpus and I won that round. That put me in the finals with Doug Duell. This was the tenth DDC and he’d not yet won the event since named after his father — so he wanted it as bad as I did.

We waited until late in the night for this round to be run — before the track went up against it’s curfew deadline, and the race was rescheduled for the morning. Saturday at 8:30 we ran our 3rd Qualifying — and I over compensated in weight — and was slow enough to qualify — but not well. Right after that Doug and I ran the Final of the DDC.


11836743_10204570088747929_7065446382097762287_n

We had a OK lights but I took the stripe by 8″ for the worst of the Double-Breakout. I guess 2nd best of around 55 racers that qualified is suppose to be a consolation — but I wanted to win bad.

Next was the FX Shootout, and I think there were 14 of the fastest NSS cars in that. I had Joe Midile in the first round. That’s when disaster struck for me.  After we were paired at the top of staging — my car had a big backfire starting up to move into the staging lanes. The burnout and launch went well, but as soon as the car hit 5500 RPM it was popping and I had to short shift. I saw Joe redlit (he left .25 second after me) and was able to drive down the track.

11099722_10204570511958509_8035035015331782894_nBack at the pits we looked at the Intake and found that it had blown the sealant out at the carb plate and left side of the top. It takes hours to remove and clean — and 12 hours for the sealant to set. There were 3 more rounds of the FX Shootout and then the first round of the Joliet eliminations to still be run — so I had to keep a low profile and fake it.  Next round was against Tim Frees — and I got lucky when he tried Oxygenated gas for the first time — and his car hated it. I was again able to drive the car down the track without hitting 5500 RPM because he’d given up. Below are the FX Racers in the Shootout.

11825007_10206235188816556_802147162787886175_nFor the next round I had Doug Duell again. The remaining drivers all put up $100 each for an extra pot, but I knew I was just donating. We both had good lights — but my car was sick. Doug went on to win the FX Shootout for the second leg of the Hat Trick he was shooting for. I won $100 and quickly turned it over to him.

11811388_10206235188136539_2311245113542884162_nThat night we removed the intake, disassembled, cleaned, sealed and reinstalled. Since the sealant had to set for 12 hours — we had to leave the car out all night, not really good for drag cars. In the morning I warmed it up and it felt pretty good. I had to race DW Hopkins — and that happened at 9:30AM. The winner would get a BYE to the finals. I had him on the tree — but the transmission started slipping real bad as soon as I hit third — and the car was way off. Corky Bumpus won his second of the four points races when he ran DW in the Final. I won the Joliet race last year against DW — so he’s gotta be thinking he’s Jinxed at that track.

We loaded up and pulled out at noon Sunday — and drove all night to finish the 1150 mile trip to the shop by Monday 6:00AM. We had the motorhome unloaded and I was home and showered by 8AM. NMCA calculated the points and while I’ve moved up to third — Doug will have to fall on his face and I have to run the table at Norwalk (later this month) for me to win the Championship again this year. Those points are 150 instead of 100 per round.

pointsFYI-Dallas now wholly owns the Big Red Ram and its web site — and while we will still be traveling together to the races  and he’ll be my crew chief — he will be maintain it’s site and market for his own sponsors. I mention this as he and the car will no longer be part of the sponsor reports.

Blame Islam, Not Kids

Dave Schultz  – July 18, 2015

tn-killer

I’m watching the Saturday morning pundits blaming kids for radical Islam. This is not kids going wild, this is the culture of Islam and Liberals using young people.

This particular idiot doesn’t represent the average kid:

  • He was born in the Middle East
  • He was a devout Muslim who attended a radical Mosque who encourage the thought that any other way than Islam is evil, and pointing kids to Internet sites to take that concept further
  • His father was on the watch list for contributing cash to terrorists
  • He recently traveled to the Middle East
  • He grew the style beard common of radical Islamist men
  • His postings on web sites

Even Ray Charles could see this particular young man was a time bomb that needed close scrutiny.

However Obama:

  • Imports more and more Muslims
  • Has TSA doing full body cavity searches on old ladies and little kids instead of focusing on young middle-eastern men
  • Claims terrorism to be workplace violence and Lone Wolf acts, then celebrates Islamic Holiday or rushes off to fundraiser later same night
  • Never criticizes or goes after radical Islam, while at the same time stoking hatred against whites, cops, and southerners

Assisting in all of this is America no longer trying to stop Islam are uber-Liberal school teachers who are polluting our young with school trips to Mosques – while teaching all things Christian is evil; not only no longer responding to radical Islam at its source – but releasing and trading Gitmo terrorists; no real Muslim group sincerely speaking out against terrorism because they at least secretly love it; the silence and cowardice of the media not speaking out on the true root cause – or Public Service Announcements geared to young people deglorifying the recruitment and of what life under Radical Islam is really like.

Poor leadership at the top, Liberal brainwashing from schools and MSM, salting Conservative areas with Middle Easterners, allowing Mosques to continue to incite terrorism under the guise of a religion, and not doing anything to quash where terrorism is centralized.

But I digress.

Complaining, Negativity, Anger, and People

Advice, for what its worth

11212781_816554261746848_6817686521908366983_n

A few years ago there was too much self-inflicted Drama in my life. I say self-inflicted because I’d gone from a fairly positive non-complainer in the 70s-90s to a participant in Drama in after I’d retired – around 2000 when started drag racing. I found that a lot of it was that I was running with a new group of people that I was racing with. In that group were a couple that were always complaining, always insulting lying, always negative, and always angry. I found I was starting to become more like them and didn’t like it. I hung around those people less and less and started running with more positive people in a more adult (vs. Child or Parent) ego state. I became more happy and positive again. I looked around at who I was running with and shortened my group of friends who were negative complainers.

Life is so much easier now that I again deal with problems in a rational way — instead of in anger.

However you can’t always avoid angry, negative and complaining people as they might be family, co-workers or customers/clients. Those I still have to deal with are a total buzz kill to be around, and they are their worst enemy because of their constant unhappiness to themselves besides being the buzz kill to others. Complaining, negativity, and anger not only resolve nothing – but is also a determent to solving problems — plus causes health issues. My blood pressure is twenty points lower than it was a few years ago — despite my blood pressure medicine also having been cut in half.

Take a close look at yourself. Do you complain, are you negative, and/or are you angry? Look at who you run with and who you might better run with. Make an effort to improve with complaining less and being positive more often and your anger and health will improve. Life is full of ups and downs that we have no control over. What you do have control over is how you handle it. You can handle situations as a Child or as an adult.

Dave Duell Classic 2015

Sponsor Report of the MoparStyle Race Team

By Dave Schultz
May 19, 2015

11096413_894869713892202_3811430319538728193_nThis was the 10th Dave Duell Classic — arguably the biggest and best of the Nostalgia Super Stock events. The race honors Dave Duell, who was the coordinator of Nostalgia Super Stock at the Monster Mopar since the early 90s. He died in December of 2005 and the race was renamed the Dave Duell Classic for 2006. While the race moved from the Monster Mopar Weekend to NMCA about five years ago — it is still the big event of the year with Class Eliminations, Driver’s Dinner with Swag raffled out, and a $4000 purse for the Sunday Big Show. Dave’s son (and fellow Team Thug member) Doug Duell now administers this event with NMCA. Doug is my best racing bud and we pit together at the races. Dave Duell got me into NSS back at a race in 2003. I won Class (C/FX) for the first DDC in Big Red Ram, and a couple of other classes in the Vitamin C (C/NSS) and the black Coronet (A/NSS) since. I have yet to win the FX Class in my two attempts at the wheel of the Whale. Dallas has twice won the FX Shootout.

We left Wednesday morning and got as far as Jackson, TN before midnight. We got up at 6:30 Thursday and arrived at the track at noon. Despite the fact that I had a new untested motor in my car and Dallas had made numerous changes to his car — we elected to not pay $150 to make a couple of test hits — and simply established credentials and teched the cars in Thursday. I was very surprised that my Texas Whale was on the Event’s T-Shirt this year. The Chevy guys say it makes a great oil rag.

11270283_10204088782075563_8533053166417248081_oFriday morning I made 4 test hits on my car and Dallas made three on his. On the first Qualifying run we were both too fast for our 9.75 Index — both running an identical 9.669 (with Dallas having a faster MPH). On the 2nd Qualifying pass I was able to slow it down to 9.759 — giving me 6th of 54 in Qualifying. Dallas was still having issues with a consistent 60′ on his car (we now feel like it has to be the convertor he’d borrowed to see if it would make his car faster) and was in the 9.8s — putting him to 33rd.

DDC2015-1small ddc2015-small DDC2015-2smallI was looking forward to pushing it for the 3rd and 4th qualifying to make my 4th Top Qualifier in a row – but the rain came Saturday and the 3rd and 4th Qualifying were cancelled, and the FX Shootout was rescheduled for the Indy race. The Driver’s dinner on Saturday night was moved up a couple of hours to fit in between storms. I took a lot of photos at the dinner, which I’ll post on this site later in the week — after getting caught up from being away for a week.

11110898_10205730379874243_4689310113441504593_oThe first two pits in the above photo were ours and Duell’s. We pit together parking in opposite directions to share a pit patio for dinners. The top of the Whale can be seen in the SE corner of the photo. 54 NSS cars creates a very long pair of lines. 11053108_679401325538192_1611926501477513500_nYou would think with 54 racers that there would be no chance that Dallas and I have to race each other in the 1st round — but Nooooo, for the 4th time in ten races we had to race each other in the 1st round. On a Sportsman ladder with 54 cars — 6 races 33.

11059766_10205639936615623_5234548666232238736_nI won that first round — as Dallas’ car just wouldn’t 60′. Dallas would line me up (below) in round two against 00Joe. I’ve been 00’s bitch in our other two races — but I came out on top this time when he took too much stripe on a double breakout.

11110445_680392718760892_3287576385754910628_o 11232291_680392695427561_2563674437703185049_o 10847760_680392672094230_5574045006986680328_o DSC_7880In the third round I was facing Russ Konkowski, who’d just came off a near perfect round. We both pressed the tree and his -.006 was worst than my -.003. He had to leave 3/4 second before me so I don’t know if his red bulb distracted me and made me go — or if I’d gone red anyway. I’d been fairly good on the tree for most of my passes this weekend.

DSC03964DSC03965DSC03966Then the rain came down hard with 3 rounds left to go. A couple of hours later the remaining rounds were postponed until Indy. Indy is going to be busy with the postponed FX shootout, the finish of the Dave Duell Classic, and the normal Indy race. Sounds like a lot of passes — and a couple prayers that the car will stay together from the hot laps. On top of that – we’ll come a day early to wear the cars out even more. The below is the remainder of the ladder for the Dave Duell Classic.

11180630_10205651453743544_8020317347222072281_nWe left the track at 2:30 and drove to a truck stop to watch (in a storm) the Houston Rockets win the series against the LA Clippers. We arrived at Walmart in Jackson, TN at about 10PM to park for the night. Up at 6:30 — and back to the shop in Richmond, TX at 7PM.

Again I’d like to thank the sponsors who have helped us (in order of how long they’ve helped us): Mancini Racing since 2003 (an account for parts); TTI since 2011 (headers on three cars – had to go custom on the Whale as no one makes); Fuelabs since 2013 (fuel systems on the Whale and Big Red Ram); Aerospace Components since 2015 (Brakes on the Texas Thug — but we have their vacuum pumps on all of our cars and their brakes on my Whale); and ATI since 2015 (convertor on my car – and we run their balancers on all motors). They say the quickest way to become a Millionaire in drag racing is to start out as a Billionaire. We appreciate our sponsors delaying how fast we go broke from our living the dream as father and son drag racing.
