Time trials don't bother me as much since we barely get a full field, but the fireworks every week are starting to get old. Can I ask what charity is this race supporting, or is it the winner chooses which charity it goes to? I cannot remember this race from last year.

Also, why is general admission $18 for a $4,000 to win race? It's only $400 more to win from a weekly show and we're paying $4 more for admission. Are we paying for the fireworks? I too can live without those fireworks!!!!

I was wondering about the time trials because I know usually all Diamond Series Events are time trials, but it usually says time trials start at 7:45 on the home page and it does not say that this time. Just start time 7:30.

Oh well, I agree count me out. $18 to get in, fireworks time trials, not worth it. Hodnett will start in the top 6 and Dietrich will some how time to be on the front row.

Thank you, did not see it was 18 to get in either. Although its only four dollars, that's four dollars more to watch three boring things: Time trials, 305 racing at a big track, and fireworks.

I'am not sure if I want to pay $18 for TT & fireworks, Normally the diamond series race is $15. I can save money Fri. And go Sat. & Sun. I'am getting sick of all the fireworks also, You only need them 2 or 3 times a year!!

$18 to get in. I guess this charity event is being paid by the fans. The track can write it off as a charitable donation the fans can't. The track should be paying for this not the fans. If they are making us pay for this at least get rid of the fireworks and TT's.

Those couple minutes of fireworks have added up over the past 2-3 years every single Friday.

If you really are a race fan and can't stop complaining about Williams Grove then go to Path Valley tomorrow night . The place was made for the wingless Sportsmen and late models . 10 bucks to get in , great racing and homemade soup 3 dollars for a big bowl .

If you truly want to take a stand, then go support Trail Way tomorrow night. Support another track instead of complaining on here and sitting home .

I really wish they'd put money into fixing the speakers! Or at least tell Bruce to quit whispering! :cheers2:
