The ARDC wasn't near life support five years ago, of course not all cars were worthy of competeing with a national series but the fields were strong and the racing was good. A few years ago the car counts started dropping into the teens and now we are lucky to have a dozen cars show now. I'm glad we have teams that can compete with USAC but we always had some of those types of teams. Today we might have one or three more teams that can compete with the national guys but I think it came at a heavy price for the racers that can't afford to compete at a national level and have given up on midget racing.
I'm hoping next years ARDC schedule will find some smaller tracks to attract more teams. I would rather see midgets at a track like Kutztown (if it could happen) rather than big half miles and that is only due to the decreasing car counts
