In Topic: Dog Hollow Still ULMS

28 August 2021 - 07:12 AM

Someone on facebook even posted on their page "you know Max is going to the DTWC on the their post about now sanctiong the Stampede at Lernerville". They just responded they were aware.

I believe the ULMS rules state that he can miss a race or 2, as long as you complete 75 or 80% of the shows to get full point fund money.  So, I don't know where that stands, but cancelling a series race to keep the percentage up there seems to be a stretch, as you still can have other rain-outs, etc. effecting how many shows would need to be completed. I would think the tracks holding shows would not be cool with that situation, and haven't heard any rumblings on that side of things so far...

I'm not bad mouthing the ULMS. But, TMS must not be breaking even or they are losing money on these shows.  Or, maybe they feel they can draw just as many cars without having to pay the sanctioning fee. We don't know because they aren't saying.

It's definitely a business decision, but I'm just pointing out that the sanctioning fee isn't that big for regional series races vs. WoO & Lucas Oil, and those series have from 8-12 series travelers usually ( bigger names granted ) that are "guaranteed"...  ( Eriez WoO show had a total of 26 cars )  Some teams regionally will hit & miss regional shows as their schedule works out, even if they aren't chasing the points titles. Knowing how the race will be run, purse, format, etc., does get some fringe cars to come to a regional sanctioned show more often than just an open show sometimes. ( weather, actual track, other races, etc. factor in.. )  Just to use the TMS recent open race as an example, looked like they got maybe 3-4 cars "extra" that don't run there usually??  So, it's hard to say how many may have came with a sanction, but picking up 4-5 more cars certainly would seem like it could have happened... With the crowds looking pretty good at most tracks, most races, this year, I'd say tracks are doing ok either way, but are just looking/testing the options.  Business is business, and I give all the track owners/operators a bunch of credit for doing what they do so fans can watch good dirt track racing.

We went the night they had 410's and Big Blocks and other than Blair and the Scott's, (trying to remember if Chub was there), you're right. Hard to justify paying a sanctioning fee if all they are bringing is 5-8 cars.

It's a regional series paying $3,000 to win, and a decent overall purse, so how many "extra" cars is a good number?  15?   With tires, parts, COVID, fuel prices, all still issues, I don't see what folks expect? Tracks need about 5 "ULMS-related" cars with 5 people buying pit passes with each car, to cover the huge sanction fee...  Without regional series around, tracks wouldn't be having as many better purse open shows, and some tracks have issues running qualifying, tech, etc....  Competition is a good thing to keep purses somewhat better, as the costs to race SLM's is crazy...  JMO
