  1. Malta, no spectators next week. Must be listed as a crew member. I had a feeling it it would be my swan song with what happened with Fonda. Consider myself fortunate to have seen any racing this season. Thank you Lyle and all the Malta staff!
  2. Hendry County Motorsports Park in Florida has ran the last 2 Saturday nights. Not sure about crowd size.
  3. You hit the nail on the head. The cost of bringing the SDS series to a track makes it more difficult on the return. I would say that's the case with Airborne and Mohawk. The $ saved by not having them can be used to hold special $ nights where you might attract invaders from other tracks bc of rainouts that day or from previous nights. Airborne got a lot of sportsman and more 358s when Mohawk had a terrible run of rainouts. Question. Is there a track sharing concept out there? Could for instance Mohawk and Airborne share a schedule? Don't run both nights Friday and Saturday. Stagger schedule. Have a combined track champion? Just food for thought. Seems harder and harder to get fans in the stand. If say Airborne didn't run every week, fans might be more inclined to show because they can't say"there's always next week. I as a fan would find it cool to see my hometown track drivers at Airborne, have to go to Mohawk the following week Seems like getting harder and harder for tracks to make a profit. I don't claim to know the answers, but I do know tracks need more fans in the stands to make it.
  4. "Bruno was released but under several strict conditions, including that he not possess any firearms, that he have no communication with the teens who trespassed on his property and that he observe a 24-hour curfew with few exceptions." 🤔
  5. Gary is easily one of the nicest guys I have ever met. I had the privilege back about 5 years ago at the world finals NC. To carry the NY flag with Gary. I chatted with him The whole time. I called him a legend. He just chuckled. Great guy.
  6. Anyone but Grafton. What a dork. He quietly in interview talks about racing his teammates 99 and 98 how he didn't want to wreck them all. At that point in race he had secured homestead, and teammates were running hard. I guess it didnt bother me that he wanted a pass by, it bothered me when he said he had something for the 52. You didn't have anything for the 52, you couldn't even get by your own teammates!! Even if I wasn't a 52 fan, Crafton would still rub me the wrong way.
  7. I think it's been discussed that sprintcars will not work at Oswego without catch fences. Would be cool but not safe.
  8. Great Minds think alike. Weedsport doesn't run every week so gives fans a chance to see a track they haven't been to or seldom. Moving schedule back takes away a satellite race. What track would not run? It's exciting to think about what a Thursday Friday Saturday night shows would be like. Great idea about 5 530 start. We can only hope it might be looked at.
  9. I was only at Sunday's race but was wondering if Rocky Warner had a car at Oswego? Sorry if this is a dumb question. I figured with the success this year he would be there, maybe he was and I just missed it.
  10. You are correct about the spectators in pits. I was one of them, although I was not 😵. I felt bad for the long haired security guy who looked like he might have had a stint in the WWF as a heel Lol. He was doing his best to direct traffic and keep people from getting ran over, but many people either had there heads up their asses or their heads in their phones.
  11. People talk about cold weather being an issue running Oswego at night, but they run satellite shows at night. I mentioned in my original post about maybe having less satellite shows. That was just a thought. Personally if I was there for the week I would hit them all. If track owners can make $ off these shows 👍👍. Just seems like less interest in satellite shows by drivers, not the fans. I don't have the answers. Many of you have much more knowledge and time in than I do, so here's another question. I mentioned how it would be cool to have a different race at Oswego during the week at night. The ones I mentioned were crate Late Models and IMCA mods. Could they finish the 3 divisions whatever they are doing that particular day, and put the Late Models and IMCA mods in the infield after they finish?
  12. It's fun to talk about what could make SDW better.....but what are the chances that they will really look into making changes, most importantly doing Thursday, Friday,and Saturday night? I'm just a fan. Who has the pull to really have this looked at and considered?
  13. Thought would be fun to throw around ideas about changes to SDW and satellite shows. I had mentioned the WOO Late Models and tend to agree might be pricey to get them there and car counts might be low. So I will start off with an idea. Tuesday: Hurricane 100 and ESS and Sportsman. Hard to get rid of the hurricane Tradition This will be the only Satelite race Wednesday: Practice etc.. during day for 3 divisions Wednesday night Crate Late Models and IMCA Mods Not really sure about IMCA kids car counts but doesn't Fulton have crate LM? Remember the Go Nuclear LM? Make it a $10 tix Thursday night Would be the Friday nights program. Friday: Salute to troops 150 and Sportsman race NIGHT RACE! Saturday: 200 and Pro stocks NIGHT RACE! Sunday: Day time makeups if necessary I'm sure im missing some details with qualifying, etc... Lower car counts at satellite shows and bringing something to Oswego tears different would be cool I know space issue Just having fun thinking about what might work
