    DRONE IS WATCHING

  2. GMF says:

    Now drone…. tread lightly huge b fan here!!! He is a pretty cool guy on and off the track.

  3. GMF says:

    Hey if we add my lawyer fees I think DW could take the b Lol ;-)

  4. DRONE says:

    I THINK MARK IS A GREAT GUY, DRIVER ECT.

    YA JUST CANT HIDE FROM THE TRUTH….

    DRONE IS WATCHING

  5. GMF says:

    Put him Michael long and a few others in some box cars and you better believe it would be one heck of a dirt race. Some people you know will always put on a good show!
    Oh drone you know I’m a woman I’ll never agree ;)

  6. Showstopper says:

    Im sure Mark is a nice guy. Drone is right though. The big * is affiliated with him in all the IMCA years with a proven tested illegal engine. My favorite #7 memory is when he put Darin Walker in the fence on last lap to win. Darin’s Dad Dalton congratulated him with a knuckle sandwich. Anybody remember that? Probably mid 90s. Darin was in a #6 car.

  7. Dave Moore says:

    Boys, how many years or races did the illegal motor last. Lets see, 12 years times 20 or more races a year equals 240 nights. Must have been one hell of a motor don’t you think.

  8. rick sager says:

    SOOOO TRUE DAVE.IF YOU WIN EVERYBODY THINKS YOU ARE CHEATING.BURGTORF,LONG,DUNKER.BUT I GUESS DRONE AND SHOWSTOPPER KNOW IT ALL THINK THEY DO ANYWAYS

    THE ENFORCER

  9. craig courty says:

    yea I remember the so called “knuckle sandwich” you are talking about let me give you the whole story as I was in the next pit someone in walkers pit called mark over as he was walking back to his hauler and guess did not like the answer he gave to a question and walkers dad punched him way I seen it on the track 6 car tried to go around mark on high side and ran out of room and hit the backstretch fence sometimes you run out of talent

  10. GMF says:

    And they say women hold A grudge… gee the 90s I was maybe 5 or 10 lol

  11. bullringfan says:

    Yeah,I am sure Burgtorf never got teched in all the races,national championships,deery brothers titles he won while IMCA racing…he gets caught ONE time with an engine that the heads are illegal on(which he didn’t build or most likely didn’t even know it was illegal)and he was cheating ALL THE TIME…..what a joke….

  12. GMF says:

    here’s the best thing about all the great michael long mark tony dunker the list can go on and on and on and yet they go out every week and put on one heck of a show for us they don’t let a few people who think they know it all change who they are and what they love kudos to all of them

  13. Randy Rigg says:

    Steve

    Most people don’t know that the head modification that Mark had didn’t amount to a hill of beans as far performance enhancement and almost every Chevy L/M motor of other competitors had the same thing done on their heads. The people that binifited from this are Brodex and IMCA from the sales and stamp kick back of the sales of new heads. Every one was gun shy after marks deal and replace their heads with new uncut heads. Every time A part is sold with the IMCA stamp they make a percent of the cost of that part. When IMCA makes Rule changes they make money racers loose money.

    Thanks Randy

  14. Keith Pratt says:

    Mark Burgtorf is the David Ortiz of Quincy Raceways. Got caught cheating and now is a god.

  15. full bubble off says:

    Yes I did see him walk on water a few years ago!

  16. Andy Mann says:

    Showsucker!!! Darin Walker’s dad sucker punched Mark , further more the car owners got to Hannibal pulled over to talk to Darin & his dad ,because they knew Mark did not hit there car , get it there car ; Lets talk funny Gary Dreyer got sucker punched once & he was in his WHEELCHAIR bet u thought that was funny too! Heres your ASTERISK !!!!!

  17. Overthehill says:

    Andy don’t fell to sorry for Gary Joe H. was standing up on a traler tool box to get away from Gary. I think Joe and his brother bit off a little more than they expted with Gary’s upper body strenight. Now that was funny!

  18. kmock says:

    My guess is that with the success 7B has had at Lee County, Scotland County, and Burlington, in a LM, AND Modified, cannot be simply passed off as cheating.

  19. fan418 says:

    Just watch Mark. He is very patient and smooth. Was he illegal that time? Maybe. Did it help him win? Doubtful. Seems like if you win alot, you are automatically cheating. Its called seat time, working on the car and a ton of natural talent!!!!

  20. Balls out says:

    Mark Burgtorf is one of the smoothest in the business. And this is what you need on a smooth slick race track. But some times it requires B/O driving. The names that I think of first are Terry Schlipman Ed Dixon and Steve Grotz. These men have a testicular fortitude in a race car that few people know about. Watch Grotz run the WALL at Moberly and you will know what I am talking about. Or how Terry drove on three wheels at Burlington. If needed Mark will get up on the wheel and drive B/O such as the night that he gave Ken Schrader all he wanted with a IMCA motor (direct quote from Ken that boy can drive). All this and Marks personality make him the champion that he is, not a cheater! Remember when you point a finger at some one you have three pointing back at you.
