$25 lesson learned...
how does this work based on the wording:
A) if the purse is being paid out now...why do the cars / driver need to race for it next year if they already drove off with a payout? and if they do show up to race next year, do they get paid again?
B) if weather is threatening next year, will USAC run a 12 lap B Main like the glorified hot laps last night to eliminate 1 car instead of just lining up and racing the A to give the fans what they paid to see? I understand the long standing history of USAC catering to tradition, but when do the fan's satisfaction play into the equation when the radar situation was well known by all in attendance and the division has no plans to return until the next calendar year?
C) Is it too early lobby to pay more at the gate to send the URCrashing division home since the race will be scheduled for a school night?
thanks to all for trying last night, the cars tried to save the track at the expense of fuel while the sky weeped, which might have been avoided if they went straight to the A Main instead of running a useless B.
BRR - agree 100%, especially on dropping the URC.
Last night at the very start URC hot laps were called to the track - NO ONE moved.
They begged for ten minutes over the radio for the cars to get on the track.
I left right after the USAC B Main, took one look at the radar and I was gone.
I live in Middletown, it takes me a good hour to get to Lincoln - I was home, sitting watching twitter for at least 45 minutes before they called it.
