#446355 You all need to post something on here it is the local racing board !

Posted by Walt Wimer on 28 January 2020 - 11:06 AM

It seems many of you are against the race tracks and promoters making any money!!   Sure some of the season ending shows can be considered a "money grab", and most tracks in our area now have an event of some sort like that at the end of the season.  However, if tracks don't make money they will close down and then the race teams will have no place to race and the fans will have no place to go watch races!!!   

 

GOOD RACING TO ALL!!!

I think certain people who will remain nameless, rulined the board for many and they just don't pay it any attention anymore.  More news on Facebook!!!

 

GOOD RACING TO ALL!!!!

#446276 tri city

The Penn-Ohio series would be a good idea.  There is good support for that series in the Tri-City area with a number of local teams.

 

GOOD RACING TO ALL!!!

#446248 I see a tough road ahead for Mercer this year

Posted by Walt Wimer on 14 January 2020 - 11:47 AM

I have no idea what the current situation is with the borough of Mercer, but quite sure they would not look favorably at Sunday racing!!!  Years back there were a couple of times that Mercer used Sunday as a rain date and such never really worked out!!   Sharon has a great schedule, especially if you are a Sprint Car fan!!  However, not all race fans are Sprint Car fans,  and some fans that live closer to Mercer would not likely drive that extra half-hour to Sharon unless they were big Sprint Car fans.  Mercer and Sharon have run against each other for decades and I think such will continue with minor effect on Mercer!!

 

GOOD RACING TO ALL!!!

#445461 rumor has it

Posted by Walt Wimer on 30 September 2019 - 11:24 PM

I sure don't know everything, that's for sure!!  And some of these newer promoters are getting pretty poor at sending out anything to the media.  They think they can promote a racetrack by Facebook alone!!!

 

GOOD RACING!!!

#444860 Thought on classes to run on fridays at Lernerville

Posted by Walt Wimer on 01 September 2019 - 06:19 PM

I was at Lernerville the night Don Martin opened the place in September of 1967!!!   And I would just leave things the way they are!!!  One exception, I would change the rules some to open the Pro-Stocks back up to the open engine cars.  The crate engine cars are not getting any new ones!!  There has not been a Pro-Stock car there all year that wasn't there last year and most the year before.  NO ROOKIES in the class!!  Make the rules so both crate and open engine cars are competitive!!  There are only 16 drivers on the point list and one of them was only there once!!   As for the Late Models, this is class problem, not a Lernerville problem. They are forcing themselves out of business cost wise!!  But there are a lot of Late Model fans out there you would loose if you replaced them with a "limited" Sprint Car class!!

 

GOOD RACING TO ALL!!!

#444627 Latrobe Speedway

Posted by Walt Wimer on 21 August 2019 - 01:03 PM

Who knows with Roaring Knob!!    Worst track in the western PA area when it comes to communicating with competitors, fans and the media!!!  Never sends anything out to the media and doesn't keep their website updated!!!
