Iím sure this is the case. But the original discussion was why fan counts were higher at WoO shows than USAC. If USAC officials canít communicate that to the announcer to fill in your paying costumers they wonít keep coming back. You have to have an effective program from top to bottom. Leaving casual fans out to dry wonít leave a good taste in anyoneís mouth.Furthermore USAC shouldnít be taking orders from a car owner. Are they running the show or are the car owners. And even then they couldíve asked all owners, announced to fans they were talking about a potential second session. None of these things are complicated but have a huge impact on a fan who is new or doesnít go often on whether or not they will be back. I want to see non wing racing grow, people making excuses for simple issues doesnít help. Everyone here has been going and will continue to go to the racetrack. Yíall arenít my concern but seem to have zero interest on discussing how to improve the product so new or casual fans continue or start going to more races so the sport can grow.

If non wing is so much better they should have higher attendance than winged races shouldnít they? There is no top non wing event that comes close to Top wing events like Knoxville, kings royal, even Volusia. When that happens then you will have something to debate about. Guess you can stick to your non wing racing and I will stick to wing racing, have a good night

I respectfully disagree with your logic. Here is an analogy: the most attended, highest revenue earning movies are often some of the worst from an artistic point of view. In other words attendance, participation, or revenue are not synonymous with quality.
