  1. This has been an issue for 25 years (probably more but I wasn’t old enough to notice then). 60 laps, no caution laps counting would be fine.
  2. By virtually every metric, things are way down. Attendance, tv ratings, merchandise, are all off by huge numbers.
  3. NASCAR is still making a ton of money on the TV deal and will do so until 2024. It’s the future of the sport and continuing to make money after that deal is done that is causing so many changes.

  6. People go to Lake Red Rock which is a man made Lake right outside of Knoxville.
  7. Slideways Karting center is a cool go kart place near the track. The fair as you mentioned is quite a big deal around there and a lot of fun. The hall of fame has great fan forums during the day (meet the Posse with Bruce Ellis on Friday is fun). Pella is a small town about 15 miles from Knoxville that is a replica of a Dutch villiage and has some cool bakeries and shops. As for hotels, we stay near the Des Moines airport which is about 40 minutes and a really straight shot from Knoxville. Lots of chain hotels there running between 100-150 per night. Go on hotels.com or Kayak and type DSM.
  8. It’s a star driven sport and they haven’t replaced Earnhardt Jr, Gordon, Stewart and that’s just recently. Over time they’ve lost Mark Martin, Rusty Wallace, Dale Jarrett and those that have replaced them as top runners are wimpy spoiled rich kids who have no following. Kyle Busch is a great villain but if there’s no hero, you’re going to have empty seats.

    I don’t think it’s an exaggeration that Sheppard won more money this weekend than any other dirt racer in the country.
  10. We could have done. We could have attended more of these tracks and been a cash cow for the state. As is these races have been sparsely attended and until recently the Silver Crown division was dying.
  11. He’s certainly a fool, April 1 or not.
  12. Keeping with this analogy and judging by the crowd at Texas, it looks like the Thursday night hockey league gets more spectators than the AHL.
  13. I live in NYC and anything outside of West Chester to me is “upstate” for what that’s worth.
  14. I too am looking forward to kutztown on Jul 31 for the usac midgets.
