  1. I don't see a complaint in racer80's post . I see a legitimate question being asked. Not only that but it's his money being spent , unless maybe your buying it for him ?
  2. The Indianapolis Motor Speedway today issued the following statement: “It is with great regret that we announce the 104th running of the Indianapolis 500 will take place on August 23 without fans. This tough decision was made following careful consideration and extensive consultation with state and city leadership. As dedicated as we were to running the race this year with 25 percent attendance at our large outdoor facility, even with meaningful and careful precautions implemented by the city and state, the COVID-19 trends in Marion County and Indiana have worsened. Since our June 26 announcement, the number of cases in Marion County has tripled while the positivity rate has doubled. We said from the beginning of the pandemic we would put the health and safety of our community first, and while hosting spectators at a limited capacity with our robust plan in place was appropriate in late June, it is not the right path forward based on the current environment. We encourage Hoosiers to continue making smart decisions and following the advice of our public health officials so we can help get Indiana back on track. Penske Corporation made a long-term investment to be the steward of this legendary facility. While we were very excited to showcase the investments and enhancements we have made in the guest experience, we know we have reached the right decision. As much as Roger Penske and everyone associated with the 500 wanted to race with fans this year, we ultimately reached this conclusion in partnership with the state of Indiana and city of Indianapolis. Our commitment to the Speedway is unwavering and we will continue to invest in the Racing Capital of the World. We encourage everyone to watch this year’s race on NBC and we look forward to welcoming our loyal fans back to The Greatest Spectacle in Racing on May 30th of 2021.”
  3. I am traveling down to Port Royal . $70,000 purse between the two classes , should be a good one.
  4. Confirmed date for NY fan restriction is now August 20th. US Canadian border restriction is August 21.
  5. After 60 years of being involved in racing I can adapt to one abbreviated season in exchange for being covid free , thank you very much !
  6. Strictly my opinion but my best guess is to keep an eye on school openings. If Labor Day rolls around and things look good for schools I think SDW very well could happen. As of today things look pretty good but if Covid goes crazy again in NY I think you can kiss SDW goodbye for this year. I am trying to be positive as I have race tix and 3 campsites reserved.
  7. Your absolutely correct . Port Royal property seems large but when you do an aerial view or measurement on google earth there is no comparison to Oswego.
  8. Port Royal , big track , lots of seating and large camping area
  9. Walmart's new mandatory mask rule goes into effect Monday. Hopefully any race changes won't take effect until after this weekend as there are some big races in Central PA scheduled this Fri-Sun.
  10. Pennsylvania Gov. Wolf announced new restrictions today saying he does not want Pennsylvania to end up like Florida , Texas , Arizona etc. where covid cases are rising dramatically.
