well that's good new money is never bad for this sport.  Plus maybe they will make it less Ice skating rink and more race track

Bill expects little change for the 2015 season, especially in staffing. “Gene Cole has established one the best groups of officials in the business and I see no reason to change anything,” stated Bill

 

Good news regarding staffing. I wonder if we will see a different track surface?

Sweet, hope the new owners would rather see a 410 sprint time trial quicker than a pure stock!

Hopefully the new owners will lower the concession  prices and go for more volume . Also, it seemed like  they had way to manyspecial shows that were priced above the "regular show" prices. A lot of folks just can't afford the cost to attend the shows where they add a class of cars. Not only do you lose that fan that night, you also lose what they may have spent at the concessions.

Valid points. We went to 2 "special" shows this year. Didn't spend a penny on food or drinks because of the price to get in.

Good to see Mr. Shea and his wife are concerned about FAN attendance. Seems the last couple of years U.R. prices just kept inching up all the time. Not really sure who made the gate and concession stand price changes but it definitely effected seats in the stands. I will always believe that Volume through the gate makes you money, just make it affordable for all and you WILL make money..

Anyway, GOOD LUCK to MR. & MRS Shea on their new adventure!!!!!!
