  1. Great payout all around-Tri Track Series is getting stronger every year. Any purse posted for the skl invitational ?

  2. Seems to me this is just smarter then would first appear.
    Every fan worth their salt is transfixed on the top tier and who will be the winner. The top of the field is the headline but the way to get great car counts is how you treat the teams racing with more strict budgets, lower expectations and satisfy their competitive fire given their restrictions.
    This forum often appears to be singularly focused on car counts. Then in the body of comments less competitive teams will be demeaned by referring to them a field fillers or back markers. People that use those terms are ignorant about racing in my view.
    Some teams will be working their ass off to make it to this show with lower but nonetheless important goals. Their goal may very well be hitting their best lap time even though they may be tenths of a second off the leaders. Their goal may be knowing full well that unless they get exceptionally lucky they will end up in the non qualifiers race but that’s fine as long as there’s competition and something to win. That’s the key for the MMTTS and Stafford to get a high car count. Create a race that gives virtually any team that shows up a race where they can compete with other teams at their level and win something.
    Fans as a rule don’t get that nor even care. They can’t even grasp the fact that a person can race without any goal or expectation of moving up to the highest level and if they do realize it they may ridicule them. Many times top tier teams don’t care either.
    The Icebreaker will get huge tour mod car counts and races that are attractive to all budget levels but that’s three races in three days.
    If it’s a one day event, car counts are important to a sanctioning group and they’ve got the juice to come up with the money this is exactly the way to do it. Give every single team that shows up a chance to leave at the end of the day feeling they accomplished something and promote the heck out it at the same time.

  3. A lot of racing for one afternoon. With cautions, delays and cleans ups the main feature probably wont start until about 9.00 pm like at the spring sizzler No need for tor heats for the sk and lites, just run features. Hope the weather is good!,

  4. Great assessment Doug! That was a perfect description of racers along with track and promotional groups that fans need a better understanding of! Many fans look only at what’s racing in front of them and fail to realize the scope of what it takes for the efforts of hundreds of people and many piles of $$$ to make the end result happen!

  5. JH,
    Heat racing starts at 1:30 pm. There are no SK Modified heats. The main event is scheduled for 6 pm. I don’t see any reason why that start time wouldn’t be met.

  6. 4-1/2 hours just to get to the feature start?!? That means a six-hour event. Name any other sport in the world that drags out a show to that level. Or concert, or anything. Imagine sitting in a stadium for a six-hour football game. Unheard of. And even baseball has only ever had a handful of games longer than 6 hours, out of the thousands and thousands that have been played.
