Another great move by the intelligent UNOH college and Limaland officials. Schedule a points race and one of your biggest 360 shows on the same weekend as the 360 nationals in Knoxville. This makes complete sense. Friday night is one of the higher paying shows and used to be one that got a great deal of cars. But because of the brainiacs at the college's and track's wonderful scheduling they had to compete against the biggest 360 race in the country and managed to get a whopping 18 sprint cars in the pit area. Congrats on that. Who wouldn't want to watch 3 action packed heats of 6 cars and an 18 car feature. Keep up the good work.
On a related note, Waynesfield ran their big show last night and had 41 cars sign in to the pit area. They had 4 heats of ten cars 2 B mains and a full feature. Not to mention I'm guessing the amount of money they have to work with is probably about a tenth of what Limaland has. Also if you just take a look at the names racing there, you will see there is a fair amount of drivers that used to be regular 360 racers at lima. Now if you look at the purse of the 360s at Lima and non wing at Waynesfield, they aren't that far off. In fact I think Lima pays more if I'm not mistaken, at least I know that used to be the case. So why the change to race at Waynesfield? Just a few drivers I will mention and this is not all: Luke Hall, Mike Dunlap, Beau Stewart, Tim Hunter.
Hey maybe next year Waynesfield can take notes from the well educated businessmen over at the fine institution on Cable road and schedule the Jack Hewitt classic on the same night as the four crown nationals.
But lets not worry, after all Lima and UNOH are going to get what they strive for every year, a Hammons car will probably win the points. This year will turn out to be a success after all.
