Well so much for going to Path with the family. Guess we'll check out a haunted house instead.

With it being later in the year I hope they go with a 5 or 6 o'clock start time at path. I love those shows but it's hard getting up the next day.

I have two points to make on this.....not they really matter :D
1. Double talk - about promoting for fans and the racers benefit is why Fred says he is doing this......okay that is great...........but, why than do you not have Stevie racing in one of the top 5 most lucrative paying events in Pa....The Dream Race......disingenuous for Fred to be walking around the pits saying come n look at the purse for my show there can be no excuse.....well Fred what was the excuse for not running the The Dream.

2. I'd like to temper the comparison between the weekly tracks and Fred Rahmer promotions......I believe it is just "A Little" easier to promote 4-6 races a year than to promote a ful season at a single track. Fred Rahmer promotions is currently "branding" coup right now, coupled with Fred's work ethic it is a win-win for all......just disappointed in his choice to run 10-17-15.

I think it is great Fred has thrown his hat into promoting a few races; however, I'll be heading to Port October 17, 2015.

Susky's final show isn't until November but yes Path Valley is running against them now. That sucks but it does make my decision a lot easier now with the way things have gone at Susky. The car counts have been terrible and the track the last few times hasn't been real good either. If Todd is smart, he'll just cancel that one now because this past Sunday, he only drew 14 cars running unopposed so with Rahmer having a big show at Path Valley, he probably won't even get that many. It's a shame because Susky is my 2nd favorite track. When its right, its the raciest track around but lately it seems that things aren't going real well and I don't look for them to get any better
Way she goes.............

The only reason to go to Path Valley is for USAC sprints or midgets.

I do not see on Path Valley's web site or Fred's web site that they are a November race. The Susky show is a $ 10,000 to win show, so unless there would be big money to go against that date - I can't see guys turning down a chance at money no matter who the promoters are. Car counts have been going down at Path the past few 410 shows, I wouldn't say it is automatic that guys would choose Path over Port or any other track.

Fred did have his schedule out a long time before Port. I hated to see these being run on the same date. I was going to choose Path over Port just because it's my favorite track. I know Fred was trying to work something out. If the date has been changed to Sunday , that is perfect as far as I'm concerned.
