Default Boycott Jeff Scofield

After seeing the video of Jeff Scofield wrecking Jake Perkins at Full Throttle (Jake Perkins Motorsports Fan page on Facebook) it begs to ask the question why Florida tracks permit this type of behavior. If Florida racing wants to get to the next level it must stop this type of behavior. It is my understanding that the number 07 was not penalized for this and then later went on to drive his car against traffic while going after another driver. What is wrong with this picture? He calls it rubbing! Why would anyone want to race in Florida? There are so many talented drivers ( ie. Jake Perkins, Anthony Campi, Tim Russell, Steve Doer, only to mention a few) who could compete at a larger level but there talent is overshadowed by the irrational and dangerous behavior of the likes of Scofield. Is it not time that drivers boycott tracks that support behavior such as that of Jeff Scofield. Just wondering.

It's not the first incident Jeff has been involved in, for sure. It looked to me like Jeff got impatient and decided to move Jake. But things like that are the domain of track officials, they decide who gets punished and who doesn't. If you want to boycott someone, boycott the track.
From the tone of your post i'd guess you're related to Jake. He's a nice guy and has plenty of talent. And given the right breaks he'll go a long way in this sport. The behavior of a few drivers isn't what's held Florida drivers back. The ones who want to move forward usually find a way. Look at Brian Finney.

Nothing personal with Jake or Scofield. I have met Jake and do respect and like him. My concern is the state of racing in Florida. You are correct when you say it is up to the track to a certain degree but if the tracks are not going to do anything what would be the next step? Quit racing in Florida. I constantly hear and see (look at car counts and fan counts) how dismal racing is becoming in Florida. Florida is one of the greatest hotbeds of sports (football, basketball, etc..) and it should be no different in racing. I love the sport and I want to see it flourish in Florida. I also want to see racing as safe as possible. Unfortunately it seems tracks are afraid to hold drivers behavior to higher standards because they are concerned with car counts. I would like to see the tracks and drivers work together to make Florida racing what it could and should be. I am not an expert but I do not think it takes an expert to see something needs to change in Florida racing.

Do you really think driving like that is isolated to Florida? It happens anywhere and everywhere.

Matt, boycott the track? You are kidding, right?

Brian Finney moved to ARCA because he was tired of the horseshit that goes on in local short track racing. He got burned out on spending more time fixing broken racecars than racing them. Too many rich kids that don't mind tearing your stuff up.

He's having fun loading up the family, traveling to new and different places, and racing with a group that operates with a lot more respect from the drivers on track.
He also said last year, that he is looking to add an intermediate track car to go with the short track car. Hopefully we'll see Brian race more often, but he's not running the superspeedways at this point.

the only way that I believe would actually have a possibility of working is if all the SLM drivers went from track to track following a routine...... show up, practice, time trials, and then at the autograph session a "spokesman" for the majority of the SLM drivers announces to the fans that they are all loading up. At that point at any track the owner(s)/ promoters don't have much of an option. either call the race off, or kick him out and put on the show.....

it's not rocket science, but how many feel strong enough to actually do it...?

personally I've only ever paid attention to him 1 time.... and that was a "tell all" for me. it was kind of hard not to notice him that night. It sounds like a repeat happened last weekend.

maybe someone should invent a "racers rehab" for the guys that totally lose their heads once the helmet goes on.... might be pretty lucrative.

I agree something needs top be done about him. Because of his behavior at Auburndale during the Billy Harvey memorial, we elected to not to drive three hours to Desoto for a race my husband very much enjoys. I have an idea.. someone post a schedule where he is NOT racing and see how many show up .. ;-)

You people are dumb. Everybody hates a winner and that's what Scofield is. He feeds off of this kind of stuff and goes out there and gets it done. Scofield and Jefferson are the 2 most hated drivers in FL. But they will be in the winners circle 8 out of 10 races.

yeah, anyone who doesn't like a high speed demo derby "race" is dumb. I mean... wtf money grows on trees, people heal, cars repair themselves, and most of all the families in the stands especially the kids need to learn how to be un-sportsman like and throw tantrum fits.

Schofield was on a "dump fest" at adale and still didn't put the car in 1st (regardless of the dq) and that was with an all out wreck fest using what I hear to be an illegal spec motor, also using rev limiter set to aid in his timing to let off the throttle (not illegal, just shows the driving style).my understanding is it was basically the same at dosoto, and no winners circle..... must be those 2 races out of 10 that he wouldn't win....interested to see his next race.... I'm sure he will win that one.

I agree he has talent, but I think it ends where his rage starts.

So, explain to me, when Dorer moved him for the lead at a-dale, why didn't this "winner" you call him, just not move Dorer back and win the race????

Maybe it was because Dorer was faster, and if he did not wreck him, Dorer would have got away, and won the race, and "everybody hates a winner".

Maybe us people are dumb, or maybe us dumb people are just feed up with him crashing people!!

Bottom line is he has no problem moving people, but cant stand to be moved, sounds like a one way street to me.

My point is that you guys are wasting out time on here. He doesn't need fans to show up, pay his entry fees and go racing. Are you gonna stop buying from his merchandise Trailer so he can't afford to race? Oh that's right this isn't the cup series and people don't get to race based solely on how much money or how many fans they bring in.

well.... I think NOW you may be on the way to understanding what the original poster said.....

obviously HE doesn't need fans to show up and buy merchandise, nor does HE need competitors. (From what I've seen of view he doesn't like competition anyways)

the track however DOES need racers and fans. This would be the reasoning for someone to want to show the track(s) that if his recent actions continue that the racers and fans alike will diminish.

I thought it was pretty simple concept to understand to begin with

Default Boycot?

Such short memories, I can remember seeing a certain Gary B. that, was a supurb driver, used to see him back up norf. many yrs. back, he went quite far up the ladder, until he got to a level where them kind of antics are not accepted. I can't believe in today's litigious society that crap is still allowed by any tracks, If I were racing against that guy , my first thing would be an angry letter to the track's insurance carrier, sometimes they have a vested interest in these kinds of things.

Default fighting again

Was not there, but heard this cat was fighting again at Showtime the other night? I don't think this guy is ever going to stop fighting. I say if you promoters want to sell tickets, let put him in some cage fights on the front stretch, with other drivers, or fans. lol. Vince

Default and the saga never ends....

Door slams car into inside wall and destroys it, at NSS on 9/26/2015 in Marion Edwards Memorial. Kaz Grala's car destroyed. Track sent Schofield to the rear of the field, there were only 8 cars on the lead lap. After talking to 4 very knowledgeable racers that were at the event, there were racing side by side, Grala slide up into the 07 one time, then the 07 door slammed Grala into the inside wall.

Also herd he wrecked Atwell at Showtime a few weeks prior?
