Re(5): Southern Oregon Speedway's 2017 Schedule!

I've never bashed John either because I do give him credit for building the track. Without his enthusiasm and money there would probably be no racing in Medford. My suggestions are in no way meant to bash him, but hopefully to lead to a bigger and better show.

The Lon Skinner is one of the highlights of the season, a show many race fans look forward to. Anything that can be done to improve the show and send the folks home happy will only make the show better and more popular in the coming years. Unfortunately, the Skinner has a history of running late and beginning the feature, the race everyone came to see, about the time the show should be over.

It's a show for A Mods and that's what people come to see. Of course there is a necessity for a support class but that class (or classes) should be chosen carefully. Since it's a Modified show the most logical support class, to me anyway, are the Sport Mods. One problem with the Dwarfs, and I'm sorry if I step on some toes here, is that their feature can go on as long as an hour on a bad night. Add in their heats and their class can take as much as 1 1/2 hours. So I'll recast my vote for one support class, the Sport Mods.

To keep a happy crowd coming back year after year you have to give them a show that makes them walk out with a smile, not leaving early or staying the course and leaving exhausted. Make 'em leave wanting more, not worn out and wondering why they came.

Start ON TIME. Racing is one of the few spectator sports I've attended where a set starting time isn't always respected. The solution is easy. Just begin all the preparation earlier and allow for the unexpected. Then run the show quickly. Respect those devoted racing fans and make them glad they came.
