    "What could we have done to keep the track from closing". 1) Not take advantage of the fans. Rinse, repeat.

    It’s not worth arguing with douchebags who can never see something as good. “Only 39 cars” “3 of 4 heats won from the pole”. What is your point??? That was a high quality field of cars. Brett put on a great show and the crowd was as electric as the finish was. To those who always feel the need to bash a track or promoter for no reason...shut your mouths and find a new hobby, you whine ass. And as far as the $5000 drawing 60 cars? This isn’t 1987 anymore. Things change. Get over it.

    Are you going to go on every OCFS thread and say this same thing? Yes, sight lines are tough, but without a complete overhaul of the property this is what we have to deal with. Maybe you could put up some of your hard earned money to lend your expertise and vision for the future of the track. I am sure track management would love to have such a positive, constructive player on the team.

    Hats off to the staff at Airborne. The weather forecast was unfavorable. Rain was supposed to start around 8. 6 pm start time. Posted to website encouraging fans to get there early. Started show around 5:35-5:40. Sprinkled off and on. But got the show in before any substantial rain came. No intermission. Non-stop racing. It could have been easy to just pull the plug earlier in the day, and not take the hit with the decrease in fans....but they didn't. Sure did help with making a great Father's Day weekend. Thank you Robbie and all the staff at Airborne.

    These are the times I wonder why we even bother with the message board on DTD anymore... Why be so negative about an event that you didn’t attend RJO? What’s in it for you? Is it just to get a rise out of people like Scott? (Who by the way just finished raising close to $4,000 for the Bill Ag dash and chooses to promote the positive side of our sport.) Im honestly curious because I see a lot of it lately. Why are race fans (in general) so damn miserable?

    To clarify - this was a typo error put into our online ticketing system. Pricing for this show has always been $20 for adults, $18 for seniors, $5 for 6-16 and 5 and under free. Reserved seats are $2 additional for most shows. This weeks Wall of Fame inductee is longtime announcer Gary Montgomery. We work hard to keep an affordable night out at the races for everyone while putting on a great show. Top level drivers, variety in door to door racing and an entertaining production between races. Our fans continue to fill our stands and racing is thriving in Canandaigua. By the way we have an 11pm cut off so you won’t normally get home before turning in to a pumpkin. If you can’t get out to Land of Legends this week, be sure to support your local track. Stay tuned to more info on next weeks racing schedule as we flex for the rain makeups.

    Letting people put down blankets day(s) before the race is kind of a crappy policy imo

    I choose what tires go around this track. I can assure you American Racer has called several times to offer their wares and their tire money as well. I happen to believe Hoosier has a much better tire for the Canandaigua surface regardless of the money. That doesn't mean that AR's are bad or that other tracks shouldn't use them. And newsflash - I choose to be affiliated with DIRTcar because the member tracks work together to offer multiple facilities to race at with a standard rules package. Whether you like or dislike the rules as they stand, the reality is it provides stability for the investment of individuals and teams in their equipment. If every track had different rules all through the northeast, racing would be struggling horribly and tracks would be closing left and right from lack of attendance. Does that mean every track should be DIRTcar affiliated? Nope. Many do just fine in their niche markets and they shouldn't upset what works. Running a racetrack is a business. Running a race team is a business. In order to have success, not everyone can be the same. And as in racing there will be winners and losers. However, those who are doing well should be modeled after and those struggling should look in the mirror to see if they are in the right business. I do that everyday in all of my businesses. I work hard to provide paychecks and opportunities to my employees, our race teams, their sponsors and yes even to my bank account. You won't commonly find the customers of McDonald's getting on a forum and complaining about what Wendy's should do with their burgers. Why does it make it ok with attacking racetracks? I will be the first one, every time, to tell you support racing at any track. DIRTcar or not, Asphalt or Clay, Late Models or Sprints, Adults or kids, any season and temperature. There is plenty of opportunities to find what fits your racing desires. Running down others is just bad business.

    Talk about staying on topic...….. your reply is the pot calling the kettle black. You managed to express your political views on a forum that would prefer that you didn't. Being a Trump supporter, I'd rather you be deleted because of your Trump comments, instead of RJO. Gotta go...… the president is about to give his "Salute to America" talk

    Please keep your closed-minded political views to yourself. This is a racing forum. There are people of all political leanings here, and every driver has followers from each side of the political spectrum. If Stewie or Matt start a political party, we might have room for that bullshit somewhere on here. I doubt it though.

    Drove two and a half hours from CT up for this race. Got word that Riverside Drive was a parking lot so bailed in Amsterdam and came down 5. No problems. Parked about back in Johnstown though... LOL. HUGE crowd. Place was a zoo which made the atmosphere even better. Walking in it had that big race feel to it and the field didn't disappoint with many of the big boys in town. 39 cars is nothing to sneeze at and it was a quality field. Track was rough to start and I thought we were going to be in for a long night, but they go it fixed and the surface for the feature was pretty solid. When the green flew I figured anyone in the top 8 had a shot at it but when Stewie got the lead I thought it was over, but in the span of 30 seconds the top two blew up and blew a tire which changed the whole race. The next 19 laps were stunning. I am so glad I was there to see it. Stew's drive back to the front was nothing short of remarkable. One well timed caution gave him a chance and he did the rest. Passing one of the best, on the last lap, around the outside of Turn 4, with the entire grandstand on its feet going crazy. ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED? Friessen, Shepherd, Rudolph top 3. Three of the best in the business right now. I don't know how anyone could ask for anything else out of that race or complain about that show in the least. Yes, the track was iffy to start, but it came around and provided one of the best races you're likely to see anywhere this year.

    the best thing i saw all weekend was Vern Lafave get out of his burning racecar at Oswego. by far the scariest fire I've seen there in almost 40 years of attendance. the safety crew had the fire completely out in 45 seconds.

    Just. Don't. Go. It will be fine without you and your negativity. The prices are what they are. Deyo's prices are what they are. You have a choice.
