It has come to my attention that good sir Tony had to cough up $1800 out of his own pocket to help cover the costs of track rental at Emerald Coast Dragway last year.

Folks, this is so wrong. Tony does SO MUCH for us, for our trucks, our sport. It is an injustice to let something like this not go unrewarded. Tony is NOT the kind of guy who would complain about such a thing, so I'll do it for him.

For those who went to PCB last year (especially those who went to the track or said they would go but didn't), I propose we start a collection to help recoup his loss. We shared in the fun, we owe it to Tony to share in the expenses.

My email is [email protected], I will accept PayPal donations to honor what Tony did/does for us and will post the names of all who donate and keep a running total in this thread until it loses interest. Let me know if you want me to post the amount of your donation. I do NOT want donations from those who didn't go!

I promise to average out the highest 5 donations, and match that donation. I would vow to match the highest donation, but with my luck, Mike Baab would read this and I'd be out a grand or so.

For those who decide not to do the right thing... look deep into my eyes.

man Spud I appreciate it, but would never accept anything, it jsut was what it was,

No biggie, its past its gone, but thats why I am about this years deal, I am going down this year to hang with friends, and have a blast guys:You_Rock_

i am stil going to talk with Johnny on the track, but his [email protected] is on sundays if not mistaken

so we will see what happens.

Just ignore him guys... he's all tough and macho on the outside acting all smooth with the ladies, but inside he's Twinkie filling.

I'll start with a $100 donation. Anyone gonna match it?

I think this is a pretty good idea, however, I agree with Tony. What happened in 2011 is water under the bridge, done and over and ya just can't change what happened.... it's over


BUT

Tom trumps that with a sense of community.


Tony as much as your fat head gets in the way and prevents others form doing the right thing, on this one, just let people do the right thing. This is a choice on their part to contribute to a member of the community in a way they would like too.

No obligation

No expectation

Just "US" doing what we do better than anyone else :spank:

We're up to $370 guys. I'm not sure I should post the donators, don't want Tony getting on other peoples cases just yet. But I think when all is said and done, then I'll post up the donors so all knows who contributed.

Word of mouth, I'm sure we can get him the full $1800 back.

One way or another. This is going to happen Tony. We're not doing it to irritate you, we're doing it to honor you. Just sit back and watch the admiration we all have for you come together.

As you learned, it's easy to get people to say they'll go, a little harder to get them to promise. But neither of us have the power to actually make them show. Asking $100 per vehicle, and getting no response told me a lot.

There are some who want to race (I do), others just want to show up, be a part of and share the experience, and relax. My first trip, all I focused on was the racing, then when I got spanked by Chief, I felt devastated. Last year, I came down to have a good time, get a tune, get the windows tinted, and relax. You may not have noticed it, but I was 3 shades past tipsy both Friday and Saturday night.

I think it's fine for some not to want to race. I love racing. My first PCB trip was my first time on a drag strip. PCB was my 3rd. I will say this, having been to a 1/4 mile strip, it's way more fun than an 1/8 mile, but at PCB, we have little to no track options. The friends made at PCB are what matter most.

Seems those that want to race will either have to pay through the nose to do it, or they can just do it without having the track reserved.

We are now up to $1769 bucks. We only need $31 more bucks to get to $1800. If nobody else coughs it up, I'll add it to my donation.

If we want to go PAST $1800, let's keep this going and the rest can be a reward for all Tony does for us, or Tony can apply it to the track fees this year. Whatever he wants to do with his money...

I'll be sure to wear a "cup" at the PCB this year Tony...
