Ah, I have been to every one of them. How about you. Last night was a goood night of racing for those who were there. Just because I go doesn't mean it makes economic sence for the track to keep holding an event that doesn't draw a profitable crowd. And don't blame it all on the weather for some reason these events don't draw big crowds at the sprint tracks. The locals don't attend in large numbers and the fans from other latemodel territory don't travel to them.
That's where a track like VA Motor Speedway has an interesting niche. They aren't really close for anybody (a minimum two-three hour tow from almost anywhere racers might be coming from), but they've got a terrific facility, and they are doing some neat stuff like their Commonwealth 100 where they play up the fact that they can draw from the "Three State Flyers" territory from the north and down into the Carolinas from the south, and make it a WoO LM show to boot. They play up the "North vs. South" angle with Civil War re-enactors, complete with an artillery piece. That thing makes one BIG boom!
That's one thing I think is missing in a lot of the shows in the MD/PA area. People are setting up shows and series that are good for the teams, but there isn't the promotion and "why should I as a fan care?" aspect being worked as hard as it needs to be. At most of these shows, if one were to remove family and friends of the racers from the stands, there'd not a be a whole lot of folks left. Nothing against family and friends, but good promotion also draws in people who have no other connection to the shows.
