Starting a thread to get opinions on this edition of this wonderful event. I was not able attend this year but certainly paid attention. I have input on this but what troubles me is no posts from my buddy Mr Funk. Whatís up with that?

Another observation. Hats off to Kokomo, the Stanbroughís and everyone who contributed in anyway to raising 40k for I believe Reillyís Hospital. Well done!

Well run program, track in great shape, huge car count, fantastic close racing, large crowd, was a great racing evening. King of the Hill is a very interesting concept, that I feel other promoters/tracks should incorporate in their weekly programs. You could even expand on it, go to double elimination, etc. I noticed, the fans were on the edge of their seats, and cheering louder for this, than probably any other race of the eve. Smack down is now on my must see yearly race list. I will however bring a sweatshirt next year.

Probably like a few dozen others I know, Switched from participating to just reading IOW. Due to all the "We can't have a conversation, we gotta try to tear each other down post"

You would sure have to question an entity that would ban someone who promotes the sport like Brent. Glad to hear that it may be of his own accord. But just doesnít seem like a Kokomo race without his input.

For me: The best Multi-night sprint car event in the country.

Purple, I canít say youíre wrong. I wish I could be at every race. Iím at a point where Iíve got to pick and choose. Trying to knock some things off the old bucket list before I kick it. I love Smackdown but this year I chose the BC39 instead. I just canít go to them all. I canít applaud USAC and Kokomo enough for putting this event together. Iíve been to a lot of them and itís great. I donít like the King of the Hill thing, but maybe thatís justme. Actually I know itís not just me but thatís a topic for another day. Lastly I want to thank Mother Nature for giving the O Connors, USAC and the fans some beautiful weather.
