Huh, great job by Sharon and penn/ohio. Free concert 10 till 2am. No charge for camping, FREE. Hear that lernerville ? Ticket prices that if this were any other big 3 show would be doubled if not tripled. Pit fees that are in line with a regular weekly show. The place will be packed and it should be one heck of a show. Guess what, a novel idea.

It's great to see a track thinking outside the box, and not afraid to try different things. Great job Sharon Speedway.

Blue by you. This used to happen at most speedway's! Not anymore. Today you get charged for any stupid idea a promotor can come up with. Camping, 4 wheeler, and on and on.

If this was a SLM race that paid 10K to win and 300 to start. Does anyone believe the track in Sarver would have free camping and ticket prices that would pack the joint. I highly doubt it.

I agree. Kudos to Sharon Speedway for trying to get as many people there as possible. Instead of raping everybody or only the rich can afford to go and pay all the extra fees for camping in four-wheelers.

Wait till you see how much room there is at the firecracker this year that it's $75 just to pitch a tent.

Does Sharon have an access to stands from the Pitts like Tricity where crews can go watch the race ?
