I agree totally....let the racers decide what they want to run on all four corners. American Racer still makes the best tires out of natural rubber not the crap Hoosier is using. We ******** about the Goodyears and now we have tires that are ten times worse than they were. Of course the racetracks are getting the kick-back from the tire manufacturers so they want to dictate what tires you have to run. True, wings are the other big problem. Watch a guy out front with a so-so race car going like hell then he gets passed by one guy and gets in dirty air and he drops like a rock. Yes, parity sucks. everybody has just about the same horsepower so winning has to come from somewhere else and it should be the drivers abilities, but it's not. The drivers and owners put on the show and they have the least to say about how they race....SUCKS. Drivers and owners are the worst organized people on the face of the earth. They will do almost anything to race, even being pushed around by people who have no clue as to how a race car operates or what it takes just to get ready and show up at the track to put on a show for the promoter. Imagine that!, you have to pay to put on the show and you have nothing to say about how it's done. Worst part of all is that it's been like that forever and I don't see it changing. Racers have one basic flaw....they love to race so much that they will do almost anything to do it and will subject themselves to so much crap it's unbelievable. God help the owners and drivers, because without their love for the sport the race tracks would sit empty. BTW, went to Lincoln tonight and saw a really good race with lots of passing on a track the was not great by any means but good enough to take some rubber and promote some passing. They had over 30 410's and 28 358's and a huge crowd and a 50/50 drawing that totaled over 4000 dollars so the winner got over $2200. They gave away 3 prizes to season ticket holders, two kids bikes, extra cash to the winners, $250 extra to the 4 cylinder stocks and also ran a make-up feature first and guess what---NO FIREWORKS
Yeah we need more tracks smaller than 1/2 mile. That is the great equalizer that promotes great racing, instead of making the cars identical. Due to my location, I mostly go to Port, Selinsgrove and WG. I like those tracks. The racing is OK, but I really enjoy it when I get the chance to see them on a bullring.
