Well, 2017 is pretty much in the record books and I was just wondering what some thought and what do you think we'll see in 2018.
For 2018 I have a few comments.
#1. Lets all hope somebody comes in and gets Mercer back on the right track. I feel his asking price is way out there, so hopefully thru talks somebody can work a deal out that all parties can live with.
#2. Shawn Hooks and the Penn/Ohio series continues to grow. My fear is with this big paying race your going to see owners go nuts and hire drivers that shouldn't be there.
#3. RUSH. Lease Mercer. Vicki you ran the place for years, you understand what it takes. Run your crate series races there, a home track, and throw in some specials, all stars, Big block mods.
#4. PPMS finds a buyer and the bashing of the place will be put to rest with the speedway. 100 people in the stands, some nights 7 SLM, there love for the racing community keeps the gates open.
#5. Lernerville, dump that stupid tire rule. Yes you used to get 20+ late models. those days are gone and your just shooting yourself in the foot with that rule.
#1. The sportsman racing at Lernerville was horrible. Drivers made the same comments, don't lift because you'll never make it back up. All racing is expensive. This new sprint car class, in my opinion, is going to kill 410 racing in western pa. Lose mercer and only 1 track left. Sharon ?
#2. The local teams that followed the all star tour pretty much made it for a full season. What comes next ?
#3. The 1-C was parked a lot this season, I hope it's not the end.
#4. Chubzilla and Boom, come home.
#5. It sucks driving 22 hrs round trip to see real race cars race.
