I say let them post. So the good people on this site can bash them and prove to them how stupid their posts really are.

How about a night where all of the pit crew's sit back and watch 50/50 ticket winners from the stands work & set up the cars for the racing action.

Maybe that is what it will take for "warriors" to appreciate what goes on down in the pit area from the time teams unload, until the time they pack up and head home. Trust me, I appreciate a night in the stands watching the races, and getting home at a reasonable hour. :cheers2:

:thinking: Will you even find any 50/50 winners? I don't think they have that many winners seeing how you can never hear the 50/50 # most nights to begin with. They always call the # when cars are going around the track. Why can't they wait till the race is over? More money in their pocket if no one claims it.

You know, that could be turned into a neat promotion for one of the Family nights. Have a drawing for the kids before the show starts, where each kid (or family, if they have more than one kid) becomes an "honorary crew member" for a specific team for the night. Let the kids and their parents go to "their" team's pit, have somebody from the teams take a few minutes to explain what's going on (and show how much work it really is), maybe let the little ones "help" with some simple task, get the kids "their" driver's autograph, then send them and the parents back to the stand to cheer on "their" team. I'd bet a lot of the teams would be willing to put up with a little inconvenience for a one-time thing, and some of them would probably enjoy it.

Yes, some parents already expose their kids to the pits, but if one could organize this sort of thing to "hook" the families who are new to the sport, it might make some life-long fans. In the long term, that's good for the track, the teams, and the fans.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe the 1S team is doing that as an auction item at their yearly fundraiser event...

Great idea!! Not only will the kids love it, so will the moms and dads. Could raise alot of money for the individual teams or the drivers fund.

I still see a struggle to field 24 cars on Friday nights for non time trial shows.

i dont think we will struggle to get 24 cars and if we do, still be just as good of racing with the drivers that arent there.

I don't care if there is only 5 sprints there I'll still be there. Maybe the only one in the stands but that will be all right to, but then again who would I fight with about Fast Freddie being #1 :thinking:

And that's only Non-Time trial shows. You can add Lasoski, Erdley, Esh, and a few others for TT shows. Grasso and Stillwagon's teams both have 410 motors so I assume they will both run a few shows when URC is off. Also, not sure if the Mackison's plan to run WG at all this year.

You are right, I do remember hearing they are running mostly URC/360 shows this year with only a few 410 shows. Forgot about that. Some of the drivers are just guesses off of last year, so hopefully most are pretty accurate ;)
