Fall Fest Questions

Post by justplanecrazy » Tue Oct 14, 2014 4:18 pm

Have never been to Fall Fest, is anyone willing to make guess as to how long the the show will run and what the feature order will be.
The boss aka, the better half, says its a go if we can be on our way back to Jersey by 8:30.

Hoping for great weather and racing.

Should be over by 7, depends on if they drag it out or not. and I believe last year it went late models, sportsman, 358, 410, someone correct me?

There's no qualifying so it usually goes pretty quick. Hotlaps, then into the features. I like it!

Per Facebook: Pit gates will open at 3pm on Saturday. Anyone in the top 12 redraw must be present by 4:45. Cars will hit the track at 5:30

Also, anyone with a pit band will get a Free BBQ sandwich on us from Strocks!

Not sure when the stands open.
Nothing beats the old points based handicapping system.
Draw and TT shows suck.

Thanks for your help gentlemen. You have just saved me from a trip to the dreaded Wall Speedway.
6 hours of driving for 2 hours of racing sure trumps 2 hours of driving for 6 hours of wrecking.

I'll be there but I don't really like the show. It just feels like I got there late and missed something. :dontknow: I think a two day show with the same four divisions would be something to try since Octoberfest isn't around any more.

Actually , I think Port or some other track should give that format a try. It's a pretty risky deal though to try to make the payout worthwhile for a two day show and get the crowd to support it, since everyone is so negative nowadays.

Negative? Around here. Nawww.

Instead of "Williams Grove Speedway Forums" it should be relabeled "Williams Grove **** and Moan Sessions."

I remember years ago they ran a feature only program for like 7 different divisions. It's was after a promoter change. It was either a Saturday or Sunday afternoon show.

I don't remember that. I do remember two day shows that included Late Models and Modifieds back around late 90's early 2000's.

I get what you're saying but if the 1st night was just qualifying, the place would be empty. They'd have to have prelim features or something. Even then, this time of year it's difficult to get fans to the track. I remember the last 2 shows of the year last season at the Grove. It was cold and it was ghost town. We moved right up to the top row which was empty. I was thinking they might not reschedule those late season dates this year. It's hit or miss with the weather plus you have HS and college football to contend with, and the burnout factor.
