yep and you won't know where your new reserved seats will be until they send you tickets.  They did say if you had premium reserved seats you'd get some kind of refund either applied to another WoO show or refunded if you ask.

Huh. They were on my list this year instead of GIS and Screven. Guess that may change again. Doesn't WRG own Volusia. ?

Just the dirt Speedweek. The track, (last I knew anyway), is locally owned. 


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.

No, WRG still owns Volusia, they lease it to a local promoter. Its the only track they still own.

They , WRG, own the place and they can't get the new stands in on time ? The only thing that keeps them viable is the traveling shows. Wasn't Glenn Donley part of that group when it was first formed ? Spell check got me, he had super dirt week and the big block mods. Not sure if he is still involved or not, with super dirt week.

Glenn Donnelly was never part of Boundless, which became WRG. They bought the SDS and the DIRT name off of him. He actually had a long non-compete. It ended when the CNYRP bullshit started back in 2011.

It does look like WRG owns the track. Last time I checked the track was locally owned and only open for dirt speed week when it was under contract to WRG, but that was a few years ago. I can't go to speed week, so I don't follow the track.
