Missing?

Post by KauffmanFan » Thu Apr 11, 2013 9:29 pm

Sorry if I'm late on this but what is the deal with Chad Layton not being at the Grove? I know last year his sponsor wasn't running non time trial events. Did he decide not to do it this year? Where does one aquire this information? His website doesn't say anything.

Grove: 3

His car owner, Dave Middleswarth, has decided to run 410 races only at Port Royal and Selinsgrove Speedways this year.

I'm sure if a major sponsor came along, that Jim Layton would run a family owned car for Chad on Friday nights at the Grove.

Sucks guys like Layton, Mark Smith & Doug Esh aren't at the Grove as well as Erdley.

In regards to Erdley, (& this is a usual answer) doesn't he work Friday's, which permits him from not running Williams Grove full-time? :wellwaiting:

I'd have to agree with that. If I had a team that could only afford to run 1 night a week it would have to be the Grove. Not only do they pay the most and have the most big shows, but a win at the Grove is far more prestigious than any other track in the area. Sorry but that's just the way it is.

I would think actually though as far as from a money standpoint , you stand a better chance to make more money racing on Saturday night because the competition is split up between tracks , so you have a better chance of winning :dontknow:

Yeah that's true. I just remember a few years back when everybody who was anybody was at the Grove on Friday nights. Now I guess it's just too costly for a lot of teams to run two nights every week.

Good to hear. I was going to buy a season pass this year but I think I'll wait. I'll still attend regularly but may head up to the Port more often and possibly get a pass there. Hopefully things get back to normal soon in racing.

Maybe teams feel they get treated better at other tracks.
