Can’t count how many “midget orgs” this guy has started, and then moved on in the last 5 years.
When he did have races, they usually consisted of about 6 cars.
Although I’m sure well intentioned, these type of deals hurt the sport more than help it. Promoters get a bad taste permanently in their mouth about Midget racing when 6 cars show up. Or. Schedule a race at Shady Hill, then abandon it to suddenly be a pavement org.?
He has been awful quiet

Avon Open Wheel Fan(Jay Tinder)

Also I find it sad that in the video for the auction tomorrow they listed "Zoned commercial........ possible development". That just says to me that they're trying to draw in investors to make the track into a subdivision.
