  7. The thing about this entire topic that gets my ass is back when I started with Cross Country, over 35 years ago, they were the best. No other motor club came close. Back in the day, there were very few night calls, as they were only handling car manufacturers' warranty roadside assistance. And dealerships are closed at night. Back then, they were not servicing Liberty Mutual, Progressive, State Farm, etc, which are crap calls. Those insurance calls are basically like AAA calls. Over the years, they have been slipping downhill. Now they have tumbled to the bottom. It's a shame. The work is there. And I am willing to do it. But they make dealing with them unbearable in every way. They are stealing over-mileage, they're not paying most GOAs, they routinely cut loaded mileage, they cut the winching fee in half by cutting the time that they allow in half. I haven't performed a winching call for them for over 3 years. The dispatchers are rude, stupid, and they lie to us every day. I had a call about a month ago to tow a car from my area to somewhere in New Jersey. I had towed that car locally twice a few days earlier. And I knew that the member had up to $50 coverage per job. Agero charged the woman the $4.00/mile for the over-mileage, which is what I charge. She paid for the over-mileage with her credit card information over the phone. And they wanted me to handle the call as if the car was fully covered (at their contracted rates). I flatly refused. I cannot tow a car that far away at their rates, and return empty and make no money. I need the $4.00/mile over-mileage to make up for the piddling rate they're paying me. I'm sure somebody else towed it. Not my problem. And let's not forget Grundy Insurance. In case you have never heard of them, it is an insurance company for people who own classic cars. I did a little research on them. Grundy customers who purchase roadside assistance from them pay approximately triple for their coverage, versus AAA. Everyone is making more money on this call but us. One day, they sent me to service a car. It was a Ford GT, worth over $300,000. And they wanted me to charge them the same rate that I would charge to tow a Ford Focus. I refused. They won't tell you that it is a Grundy call. But the tip off is they ask for "soft straps". Beware. I forgot to add this little gem. I posted this elsewhere in here before. But it bears repeating. There are a number of instances that I received a phone call right after taking a road call from Agero. The phone rings, the caller ID indicates that it is a toll-free number, I answer it, and a recording comes on, "this call may be recorded or monitored for quality control purposes". So what would you think of that? I figured that it was a telemarketer. So I hung up. The phone rang 5 more times, and I ignored it. After the 6th call, I answered it again. The same message played. After the message, I screamed into the phone "why are you calling me?" Turns out, it was the woman with the car that I was going to. I asked her if she was a spam caller. She didn't know what I was talking about. This incident happened another half-dozen times. After talking to people, I have come to the conclusion that the member is asked if they want to talk to the service provider directly. If they do, and the press a key, they are connected to me. The problem with that is the conversation between the customer and me is being monitored and recorded by Agero. Technically, we are being warned by Agero. We just don't know why. So if you say anything to the customer that Agero doesn't like, you are going to hear about it. Now, when I get that stupid recording, I hang up on it immediately. And I call the member myself, so Agero is out of the loop.
  8. This data was obtained from Motorsport.com A late-afternoon rain shower forced the cancellation of Friday’s Cup Series qualifying session, and the lineup for Sunday’s Gander Outdoors 400 at Dover (Del.) International Speedway was set per the rule book which is primarily by owner points. Entering the Round of 12, Kyle Busch – who won this race one year ago – leads the owner points and will start from the pole in Sunday’s race.

  10. This data was obtained from Motorsport.com Previous NASCAR Cup / Richmond II / Qualifying report Kevin Harvick edges Hamlin for Richmond Cup pole 40 shares By: Jim Utter 16h ago That’s a good way for Kevin Harvick to rebound from a tough NASCAR Cup Series playoff opener. Harvick saved his best in Friday’s knockout qualifying for last, posting the fastest average lap speed in the final session (121.880 mph) to claim the pole for Saturday night’s Federated Auto Parts 400 at Richmond (Va.) Raceway. Harvick, who leads the way in the series with seven wins, started the 2018 playoffs with a wreck and 39th-place finish last weekend at Las Vegas. The pole is Harvick’s third this season and 24th of his career. “We didn’t do any qualifying runs in practice,” Harvick said. “After we ended our last race run, huge credit to the race team for putting the qualifying set-up underneath it. “Aric (Almirola) came here and tested and (we) kind of had a baseline for where we needed to shoot for, for targets and things like that.” Asked about his qualifying performance that saw him no better than 11th through the first two rounds, Harvick said that was "part of the game here." "I think we made some good adjustments on making the car better and for me just getting more confidence in how fast I could let the car roll and stay in the throttle up off the corner," he said. "In the first round we didn’t really know what we had and ran a lap less than a lot of the faster guys.” Denny Hamlin ended up second (121.847 mph) and Martin Truex Jr. was third (121.529 mph). Ryan Blaney was fourth and Daniel Suarez, who was fastest in the first two rounds, completed the top-five. Rounding out the Top 12 starters are Kurt Busch, Aric Almirola, Brad Keselowski, Erik Jones, Kyle Larson, Cole Custer and Kyle Busch, who won the spring race at Richmond. Round 2 Suarez kept up the pressure, again posting the fastest average lap speed in the second round (122.928 mph). Blaney ended up second (122.316 mph) and Custer, making just his third series start this season, was third (122.045 mph). Truex and Keselowski completed the top-five. Also advancing to the final round were Kurt Busch, Larson, Hamlin, Jones, Almirola, Harvick and Kyle Busch. None of the four drivers from Hendrick Motorsports were able to move out of Round 2, with Alex Bowman topping the organization at 14th-fastest. Also missing the cut were Joey Logano, Ryan Newman, Jamie McMurray, Matt Kenseth and Paul Menard. Round 1 Suarez led the way in the first round of knockout qualifying as two playoff contenders failed to advance to Round 2. Suarez posted the fastest average lap speed (122.912 mph) in the 15-minute session. Kurt Busch was second (122.895 mph) and Keselowski third (122.722 mph). Hamlin and Kenseth rounded out the top-five. Also in the Top 10 were Jones, Elliott, Kyle Busch, McMurray and Almirola. Busch made contact with the wall during his final qualifying lap attempt and his No. 18 Toyota appeared to suffer minor damage. Clint Bowyer (25th) and Austin Dillon (28th) were only drivers in the playoffs who failed to advance to the second round. Among the others who failed to advance were Darrell Wallace Jr., A.J. Allmendinger, David Ragan and Ty Dillon, who had been fast in Friday’s practice sessions. Reigning NASCAR Euro champion Alon Day, making his first series start on an oval, was 37th fastest.

    Another Week- Another Disaster

    I know where Wenham is. Right next to Hamilton, I believe. Thank you for your service. Today they were turning on gas service to houses that were not damaged and are inhabitable. There are a lot of people who won't have gas for a while. So today, I renewed my driver's license. It is one of those Federal approved Real IDs, which will allow me to fly on a plane, if I ever have the need to again. So after that, I went searching for lunch. Every place I tried, like Boston Market and Taco Bell, were closed. They had power, but no gas. There are three grocery stores in that area; 2 Stop & Shop stores and a Market Basket. If any of those stores had generators, I'll bet they were idle. Most generators today are powered by natural gas. And there was no gas. If they powered them with propane, then they'd be okay. I hate to think about all of the meat, frozen food, milk, and ice cream that ended up in a dumpster.
  12. This is a true disaster, affecting thousands of people, and not one of my stupid gripes. On Thursday around 4:30-4:45, I was picking up a disabled car on I-495 North in Methuen. I observed a number of police cruisers and fire trucks heading south in a big hurry. My daughter called me and told me that there were a number of natural gas explosions in Andover, North Andover, and South Lawrence (my shop is in North Lawrence, and my daughter works in Andover). So I got off at the next exit to reverse direction. As I drove south, I noticed several plumes of smoke in the sky. I was to deliver the car to an address in South Lawrence, which proved to be tricky. The customer's house was right around the corner from a multi-family house that was on fire, and burning out of control. I dropped the car, we pushed it into the driveway, and I got the heck out of there. I slowly fought my way to the north side of the river, and I got to the shop. I learned that there were a total of around 70 structure fires burning simultaneously within the three towns. There were 35 fires in Andover alone. Andover is a small town. They probably don't have 35 fires in 6 months. There was a house in Lawrence that completely blew apart. The house had a fireplace chimney on the side of the house. The chimney split in half. And the upper half got blown up in the air. And it fell on a parked car in the driveway. There were 3 kids sitting in the car. The driver was killed. And the other 2 kids were seriously injured. The driver was 18 years old. And he just got his driver's license the previous day, and he was going out to celebrate with his friends. I has been reported that the explosions were the result of the gas line pressure rising too high for some unknown reason. And it basically blew up every furnace in every basement. So the Mayor ordered everyone to evacuate their homes, and go to shelters that were set up. They blocked all access to South Lawrence from 495, and any other roads that lead into the city. They shut off the gas to all three towns. And they shut off the electricity. There were fire trucks here in town from all over eastern MA, southern NH, and I saw a couple from Maine. Unbelievable. For me, about 2/3 of my operating area was closed and off limits. No one was at home. Everyone was evacuated. So it's been slow the past few days. This morning, the affected residents were allowed to return back to their homes. The electricity is slowly getting turned back on. But there will be no gas service for at least a couple of months. So those folks better get used to cold showers and microwave dinners. Considering the fact that there were 70 working structure fires burning simultaneously in the three towns, with the help of massive mutual aid, they did a great job containing all of the fires. Nobody could train for a huge incident like that.
