  1. This might be worth the $35 now. IF they run it off efficiently, without every yellow being 15 minutes long; without wasted time waiting for the next feature to come on the track; without a useless long intermission; and without dragged-out victory lanes. It will be hard, but it could be done. Cut out the 5 minutes wasted here and there all day and you can trim 2 hours off a long day. Wishing them luck.

    For those attending prepare for a very long day. Had they gave specific time for MRS feature we would take in show. Zippy hit the nail on the head. Speedway should take his advice. This is a disaster waiting to happen. I was at wings and wheels show for 7 hours.

  3. Master Sergeant,
    I’m quite sure if track officials could choose the weather for the weekend they would. Unfortunately, they can’t decide if it’s going to rain or not. Remember, divisions such as the Valenti Modified Racing Series exist because of the support divisions that keep weekly tracks going week after week when there aren’t touring divisions on the card. You can get rid of the support divisions and then there won’t be anywhere for the touring divisions to race.
