Chrome !!! You read what you want to read. This early in the year what do you think ? guys are going to let there cars sit on jackstands in the garage ? I'm glad they had such large fields for the first 2 races many of these guys are getting in. Your thinking is so one sided it amazes me. They don't have to have total domination of all racing. What do you not get about that ? I repeatedly asked the question of how is a promotor suppose to survive with a schedule of all crate racing ? Yet, no one comes up with a answer. They can't, because what's going to happen is the same thing that is happening here in the south. There is no one in the stands.
The last race I attended down here was the fall race at Screven. By the way, they only run specials. They had a excellent field of crate LM, the top 5 cars put on a freight train race, which yes is common today. These guys were coming in with there toter's and trailers you would have thought they were following the lucas series. NEW xr-1's and longhorns dominated the racing. Dominated, so if you don't go out and buy that new chassis you better not expect to much. Watch closely, the winners will be well funded operations. I made the comment months ago, it was a 2 day show, I was at day 1. Good racing, little chill in the air. NOT 25 PEOPLE IN THE STANDS. Defend that, please do so. You can't and will say I'm a genius, far from it, but you can't carry on a conversation about what's happening right before your eyes. So if total domination becomes a reality, just how many tracks do you think are going to survive ?
I know why Screven survives. Every show they put on they bring the 4 cylinders, they pay them well and the noisy little bastards are everywhere. LOL. These guys don't have tire bills, most if not all are probably built under 5000.00 I would think. Sportsman racing is not your entry level of racing anymore. Guys building chassis read between the lines and if you don't have a built car. Well, promotors let that get out of hand long time ago. So you have the penn/ohio series. Great series. Guys can do a great deal of the work on there cars themselves. Again, a group comes in and says Hey, that class is growing and the racing is really good. But, I want a takeover, I want to offer cheap racing. Well, how did that work out for the fans ?
Let's see come the hot summer months what the track in Sarver is going to do. Racing, Wednesday and Friday. In what was at one time mostly farm land. Not anymore. Let's see how the track surface is going to hold up and everyone starts bitching about Friday's track being garbage. Tomson's are first and foremost business people. IF they decide to dump the Wednesday series for the great savior of sprint car racing. Then what ?
OK. don't forget to bitch, these boards can't survive with out it. I think it's time to go to the beach and get one of those drinks with a umbrella.
