Thank god lernerville is running lates in 2018 they said. Hopefully it will keep people like you who love crates at home.

You may be right about your opinion Crates saved late model racing around here.
If anyone has kept records your opinion would be very easy to prove. When did Fastrack start the crate invasion in this western PA, eastern Ohio area? Has super late model count gone up since then or down.
My bet is it's gone down.

First year for the FASTRAK crate Late Models was 2007

and back in 2007 the local tracks still have full fields of super late models and continued for many years so there goes your theory that crate racing ruined local super late model racing. As it has been said by people who would know, the cost to race supers is out of control. If you told someone who wasn't involved in racing that you are spending 40 grand on a motor to try to win 1100 a week they would think you were an idiot. In the 90s if a promoter paid 5 grand to win, you would get 40 cars without blinking. Now you can't even get 40 for 20 grand to win at some races. The sport is changed from what it used to be. The sooner you people come to grips with this, the better off you'll be.

This response has almost nothing to do with my post, and is quite a bit of verbal hogwash, and if there is a point to it, that point has somehow escaped me. You don't have to be a race car driver to understand simple economics.

I laugh because no matter what the talk is about as soon as the word crate get tossed into a conversation, it's over. 1 side all for it, the other all against it.
