The odd thing is, there is engagement from their social media after the race. They added a driver spotlight article, asked for feedback on a young gun class, pushed next weeks show, but literally said nothing about last Saturdays show or winners. So strange to me.

 

Another odd thing is they have a very sharp-looking, professionally made web site with next to no information on it.  I've been going to this track since the 60s when it was Schmucker's Speedway, and it's always been among my favorite race venues.  Paving the entrance road was great (since it was almost as bad as the entry to PPMS), but I hope they can get their act together.

POOR at  best track conditions. Three Demolished Race cars, and 1 flip as a result of their track conditions opening night there is not one reason why the track wasnt perfect. Renegades may have only had 9 cars but it was a stout field. Not sure where all there modified regulars were being they only had one of their regular cars show up. Pure Stocks had a good turn out. The grocery Getter Division (4 cylinders) had over 30 cars, they may want to consider running a B-Main. The UNSANCTIONED (Bates&Teslovich crate series) had bad car counts. 7 crate cars in attendance. They will be lucky if to get any more crate cars being unsanctioned with terrible track conditions, legitimate crate racers know any unsanctioned crate race is a waste of time with illegal competition. As for the fans it was a full house. The speakers did not work if you sit in Turn 4 like I do. I applaud the track for being open but at the end of the day this is going to be there third season and nothing has improved since there grand reopening in 2019 that matter. The Penn Ohio street Stocks had a good turn out considering last year the class was almost dead. I  believe that they had 12 or 13 cars I personally thought Tommy Dembowski would have won but he didnt.. They need to seriously reevaluate their track prep guy from lernerville " Dirt Wisper"  because at the end of the day the track would have been better suited for moto cross than a car race.

 

 

I'm disappointed, I figured you would blame RUSH for any issue that Latrobe had.

I'm sure its Dan's fault they cant do what he told them to do. Sometimes you have to use common sense he can't be there every Saturday holding their hands.
