All of these tracks seem to open and close and always try to do the same thing. Running all the same classes on the same night that has failed at least two other times doesn't seem like the best plan.

Is it such a bad idea for them to switch to sundays and run supers? Gives teams a 3 track weekend  . And dont have to fight two other tracks for them.

I agree, people then point out that most teams don't run two or three nights anymore. That's true. However, if they prefer to run TMS, then they will take either Friday or Saturday (or both nights), off. Hey, it's their sand box, have at it. But the definition of insanity is performing the same task the same way every time but expecting different results.

 

The only aspect I like about this is that when Lernerville rolls out what has turned in to the crap part of their schedule which is the 5-6-weeks after the Firecracker when they have way too much of Miss Vikki's Thrill Show, I can and will go to TMS.

We went there once and it was quite racy track. They had the areas undisputed King of flagmen [ Spanky Hall ] so you know that racing was carried out efficiently and the program was ran in an orderly fashion.

The way I remember it, they didn't close for lack of cars, but for ownership family or health reasons. 



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.
