Would be even better if they offer a 3 day package deal for this event. I doubt it will happen though. :doh:

If they don't do a three day package, I can see a bunch of people not going. Not many people can afford 100-110$ for three nights of racing.

Not trying to be a jerk here, but they released this information 11 months in advance. This should give plenty of time to put a little bit of money away each pay to be able to attend the biggest race of the year.

:thehand: Whatever Dude. Other tracks offer a 3 day package deal. The Grove could do the same is all we are saying. So 110.00 for tickets that's just yourself, not to mention a Family of 4 or more. $30 to camp for the weekend, or more for Hotel.( which will prob. go up this year) Food, gas for generator/vehicle Port a john rental, because they only have one outside the track that get so full **** is stacked a foot above the seat. ect, ect. Who can shell out over 500.00 bucks for the weekend. A package deal isn't to much to ask for. if not I bet you won't see many out of state'rs show up if they don't. could hurt them in the long run.

I will still just go Friday and Saturday as I will have to work Friday. Thing i'm worried about is after 2 night of racing will the track be rubbered up garbage for the big one Saturday? :dontknow:

Exactly. Remember when the Summer Nationals was a 3 day show? It's now a 2 day show and there's a reason(s) for that. If they want this extra day to work, I think they will have no choice but to offer some sort of package or something or attendance could be a little on the light side for the first night or 2. That's a lot of money for even local fans to part with let alone those who travel long distances.

Im sorry but if the World Finals can do a 3 day package deal for what 90 that includes pit passes all three nights and 3 full divisions each night, there is no reason Williams grove cant do the same thing for 1 division all three nights. They could also do what Charlotte does and do payment arrangements throughout the year.

Not sure what the big deal is, people are usually there for 4-5 days anyway... Now you get the chance to mix a little bit more racing in with your drinking, lol...

They used to offer a 3 day pass for the summer nats that saved like $15, provided none were rained out. I don't know why they need to add another night to the Natty, but hey it's another night of racing so I'll roll with it. It's a Thursday so that'll be a tough draw crowd wise. I don't know who hangs out for 4-5 days but I guess there are some people with a lot of time on their hands. LOL Maybe the hope here is that another night will draw more cars in to have a 2 qualifying nights format like the Nationals or like the Gold Cup used to be, and make this a bigger and higher paying event. That would be good.

One BIG reason. The World Finals gets many more people and the back gate is much larger too. It's called simple math.
