It ends when the competitors no longer wish to run with Rush.  I disagree that it's diluting the fields.  It's keeping people racing who otherwise would be on the sidelines.  I don't now if you've been to upstate New York any time recently, but the Crate Modifieds have four times as many cars as the other divisions.  

 

Spot on posts flash. But you can't talk sense to these people on here who just hate crate racing. As you said, they are too dumb to realize that guys like Charlier simply can't run supers due to cost so he runs what keeps him in the sport. I guess they would rather watch 10 late models every week. RUSH is here to stay whether people like it or not. Most of the time the crate races are excellent, the race at the Pittsburgher was better then the 100 lapper which saw 1 driver dominate the whole race.

I see Ville picking up the crate lates next year full time. Jmo

Yes. New York runs 1 division of cars, the crate mods. and YES it is good for the region and the sport. I have said many times the crate lates is a good class. IT gives guys like Charlier a place. But you cann't run every class into the ground as they are doing. They want to take control of all racing. The Penn/Ohio series is growing and will continue to do so. I think that series rubs her ass because she wants control. I also see the 33c and 948 showed up with crate lates, good, late model racing is going to become a specials only deal in the not to distant future. LOcal guys just cann't afford it anymore. As much as i don't understand why Max Blair doesn't get out there and hit some bigger shows i will be the first to admit, he is doing it the right way. So,   if Lernerville goes crate racing, and you have the same number of fans, i wonder if the pay out will stay the same or will they drop it to peanuts because as we all understand crate racing is so much cheaper ? If they were paying decent purses MAYBE some guys would still be in there supers. Domination, is not good, history has shown that most that have tried have failed. Then were will local racing be ?

Why must every topic on this board turn into the great crate debate?

At one time in western pa we had the 3 top tier classes. Few areas can lay claim to that. That in itself hurts local car counts. With speedway's closing it will be interesting to see what owners and drivers do. The sprint car guys need another track with mercer more than likely done. I hope I'm wrong but I just don't see anyone spending 850k. Or anywhere near that sum of money.

Actually they have 4 as some tracks still have "Open" Sportsman with 2 barrel carbs
Bridgeport ran the 2 together this gear with the open cars having a year rule and people always do the same crate vs open debate out here.
