You people are unbelievable! Really? Howie has a lot of knowledge of local racing, yes hes a little loud on the mike. But maybe someone should have given him a little heads up?! And to insinuate that he had anything to do with any tracks downfall is absurd!

100% agree!  Howie is the best guy ever for racing!  He knows every driver....every owner...what car they have...what engines they have....who used to own it and who works on and pays for.  Its his Lifes work.  If he isn't anouncing...he is photographing.  And if he isn't doing that... He is marketing.  Racing needs a ton More Howie's.  Give Latrobe a chance...they will get things worked out.  That is one of the finest racetracks in America.  My personal favorite.  Now if they only ran Superlatemodels!  They would really have somehting!

Maybe...I got sidelined three years ago with Central Canal Cervical Spinal Stenosis.  Seven Hour operation and years of recovery.  Haven't quite felt up to it yet...But haven't quit yet either.  I am currently helping Andy Friese our with some engines.  If they had a race/ races ..I am sure we would be there.  I am Cleared to race...Just haven't felt like I was good enough yet!  Plus I am way too OLD  LOL

I finished my feature at 130 145ish am. Yes it sucked the ruts were terrible but they tried over and over during the night to fix them. Just kept coming back . it happens at any track . conditions change etc . waa my first visit but I'm definitely giving them a 2nd chance

wow people these days are real pussies...

 

i love the part stating that the township doesn't have a noise ordinance because then it would have to apply to the airport, 

 

no ordinance??  crank it up for those crybabies!!

Imagine what the neighbors would think if they were putting 20 Super Lates, Sprints or Big Blocks out in the track with they want to hear noise.

True, but at the end of the day, legally, sounds like it doesn't matter.

Yeah thats good, but still wouldnt want to keep pushing it. They posted they are dropping Mods, Pro Stocks or 4 cylinders on their remaining shows.

Agree, Supers would have a good showing if given a chance!
The noise complaints are nothing new! Its been an issue forever! Once the track gets this year under its belt, next year will be better. Rome wasnt built in a day! Track prep is a lot of work an maybe they just need to get this worked out! Patience people!

They need to get some outside help with track prep, since what they have been doing is not working.  I would love to see Super Lates at Latrobe again, but the track surface issues need to be resolved before that happens.

Do they have the equipment on sight ? Grader ? If they are going to make it, give them time, hopefully they will be able to get track prep straightened out. As for the noise ordinance, that's a slippery slope. The airport has a small window when the db's go up. As for the racetrack it's more of a consistent noise level for a longer period. Not Good !!!
