I heard the same thing at the Steel City Stampede. Now they own that whole section of property. Could this be why PMS put out their 2019 schedule with the sprint cars already so Mercer does not try to run them on a weekly basis? Should be very interesting what happens between these two tracks who have a history of stepping on each others toes. Wonder how Sharon will react.

He came around and talked in the pits at the little guy nationals. Talked some ideas. Have to wait on a few things before they can make an official announcement.

Are you saying that because you know things changed and the deal fell through?  If so I'm sad to hear it.
 
edit:  or know the real story and know I was full of it and wrong at the time of my posting?  Your post makes me think I was either wrong to start with or if there was a deal going on it fell through.  I sure want to be able to go watch races at Mercer next year for many reasons.

What's important right now is to support Turkey and his race, The Little Guy Nationals. At the present time he is Mercer's best hope. Spreading rumours and third hand info is not going to help anybody.

Who says everybody is going to have a job there? With new owners they may want to bring in their own people as obviously the people there might not have been the best choice for the past owner.

Actually, dirt student is showing us his sarcastic side. As should I after being called a liar just a few weeks ago on a topic about this same thing. Despite being told from the horses mouth. Lol. Oh well.

I hope we arent all liars but you kinda have to wait for an official statement before its a done deal. I know y their waiting but still you hope nothing happens in the meantime and messes it up

The AARN item was part of Chuck Bollinger's column.  I assume he talked with Ed Michaels, but don't know for sure.

 

GOOD RACING!!!

I can't believe nobody has stopped down at the Michael Shop and flat out ask them in person. How hard would that be?

What are you talking about? People have talked to them. Its not official yet, so no one is saying its official.

Well if people have talked to them what are they saying? I'm sure if they were interested in the property they have said it to somebody at least one time or another. It's not like the property was wanted by 500 people then I could see them keeping their mouth shut.

I was told by a person in the know that Ed Michaels was introduced to the drivers at the Little Guy Nationals as the new owner.  With my bad hip I did not go to the pits so was not there to hear such personally.  Seems to me we will just have to wait until an "official" announcement is made, and since Chuck said there was a closing on October 31, we may not have to wait too long!! 

 

GOOD RACING!!!

Good things come to those who wait. Let the announcement come then support them 100 percent. It's a huge commitment to take on the ownership of a track in today's world and I'm sorry but everyone that bad mouths or talks down on a track should be truly ashamed of themselves. It's a true blessing to have as many tracks in our area as we do but it shouldn't be taken for granted cause they can be gone tomorrow. Think twice before you start the negative keyboard racing. I'm sure I'm not the only one that feels this way.

Thanks Eric. I think that you have done a superior job for the circumstances you are working with, in these past 2 seasons, and hope to see more upward momentum. 


My dad drove late models in the early 70's at North Hills, Butler, Mercer, Blanket Hill, and occasionally Tri City. We won the last late model track championship at Blanket Hill.
