Team Tony For Smoke Web-Site

I don't know how many of you here are aware of, or belong to the web-site Team tony for Smoke.
TTFS has been run by Race Car Driver Matt Poole and it serves not only as a Fan-Site for Smoke, but also as a homage to two dear women in his life; his mother Peggy, who he lost to a heart attack several years ago, and to his dear friend Tonya, who was murdered by her husband 6 years ago.

Over the years Matt has maintened the site, with games, chat, talk, arcades, and information on Tony, SHR and his Teams.

The great things about the site is that it has always been one of respect. No discussion of Tony and his personal life, no slamming or personal attacks on other members. It has always been a site of fun & discussion.

Now, after 6 years of maintaining the site out of his own pocket, and all his own time and efforts, Matt has chosen to end the site at the end of this years Sprint Cup schedule to pursue his dream; to drive at the highest levels in NASCAR that he can.

I don't know who here knows about the closing, or is a member that hasn't been there in a while, but I thought that other Fans of Tony Stewart should be aware of what Matt has chosen to do;

I want to thank Matt for all the hard work and efforts he has put into TTFS. I know it has not been easy at times, often frustrating, but always done with style and class. The site will be missed greatly b those who regularly visit it, and we salute you, Matt for all your hard work, and wish you nothing but the best as you continue to chase your dream.

I know Matt, used to talk to him for a while, and he has a great story. I wish him well.

Re: Team Tony For Smoke Web-Site

Thanks for update though I never did join since you mentioned it a while back ago & I was thinking about it. I just don't spend a whole lot of time on line anymore so I didn't bother to take up space there, I know they wanted members to check in at least once a month to keep from getting deleted out of the system. So I just come here to see what's up & that's about it.

I wish him well :)

Re: Team Tony For Smoke Web-Site

Matt is on Facebook. Matt Poole.
As for keeping it going, I think that he really wants to concentrate on his career, but that's something you can discus with him.
One of the members is putting a new site together based off of TTFS, http://tonysmokest14.forumotion.com/

Here is the soon to be former site: http://teamtonyforsmoke.com/forum/index.php

Re: Team Tony For Smoke Web-Site

I'm not positive, but he may have shut down registering once he made the decision to close the site.
But, thank for checking in, Friends!

Re: Team Tony For Smoke Web-Site

I contacted him, and he's just decided to shut it down as he simply get the traffic and member usage on it that it needs. Sounds like it was a hard decision for him, but the members there just don't interact and make use of the site like it needs. I'd be happy to try to run it and see how it goes, but he's pretty much made his decision on it.

Re: Team Tony For Smoke Web-Site

Thanks for trying, Michael! I tried the same thing too, when I first heard...gonna miss that place!

Here is the new off-shoot site that one of the members of TTFS is going to try and get running. I hope some of the Garage folks here will give it a look and show some support!
