It's easy to call the shots from your computers after race day but let me give you the facts of life from one who has made a lot of money in this business. Never schedule a big round track race before Memorial Day. Don't pull the plug at one in the afternoon unless the driveway is washed out. If you can't afford the loss find another hobby. Always see what's going on that might draw your fan count down. Examples are county fairs and other racing events like Norwalk's annual 2000 race car show and almost 40,000 fans on the same day as a race that might bring you a dozen Supers. Do you look and see who did run while you were pulling the plug? Of course you do and so do those folks that planned on being at your track and couldn't get in while everyone else was racing. The bottom line is I see a lot of inexperience this year and no one is hiring a promoter to keep them in the black. Last but not least, racing loses its fans more every year to camping when it rains a lot early on. Once they make their move they aren't coming back. Replies: There have been no replies.
