Looks to me like the Grove could have a tough time having a full field for handicapp shows. If you look at the points this year, and subtract the teams that won't be racing full time at the grove in 410's, maybe 20 cars ? They have had a tough time getting a full field of 358's all year, will people pay to see 2 divisions of less then 24 cars in each ? Maybe it's time to add more sportsman shows on Friday nights and encourage a couple of the top 358 teams to run 410's. Maybe the new tire rule will help this ?

I'm thinking the 358's will only be scheduled for 8 shows next year

not to highjack the thread, but I agree with ya. The sprints make the track too wide for the sportsman, and they all run the bottom. But when the sportsman are the headliners with late models and street stocks, the highline isnt as wide, so the cars can run both top and bottom and be fast and put on a much better show then they do when they are with sprints. I think thats why alot of sprint car fans dont like the sportsman, they only see them when they are with the sprints.

Well the changes are starting with the 51 car, time trial shows only next year is the rumor. Would be nice to see the sportsman 3 to 4 Fridays to create some more interest in the Saturday shows. They used to be a really big draw on the Fridays .

I prefer the $15 outlaw tune up format..and will attend every one I can next year.

I'd even pay a few more $ if it was a one division show with no fireworks.

Maybe it's just me but I love the 410/358 Friday night shows. To each their own I guess.

I agree with the firework comment. I rather the money spent on the fireworks go towards the sprint car purse. There is just too many fireworks throughout the year.

I have a feeling with some of the comments made in that article, we will be seeing the 51 a lot less then that... With a traveling driver and a traveling team mate that they said they wanted to start working closer with, I have a feeling we'll see the 51 next year about as much as we saw the 19 this year...
