Im not looking for a conspiracy. The track has cancelled at least four races including yours. I know Bacon had plans to run, I bet Hewitt and a few others would have shown as well as several of your guys.

It really does come down to the amount of fans they expect. I suppose. Unless a sponsor covered that Flo night for LM's Im guessing they didn't do great.

Of course, I'm speculating, Casey. For starters, I would imagine that the KO Motorsports cars would opt for MSCS at Haubstadt; same for BGE Dougherty. But, I'm confident you'd know more than I. Surely, you can put all this speculation to rest by telling us who was confirmed for Atomic. I'm sure you had Leary, Ballou, and Swanson, at the least.

Don't think I'm slamming Xtreme, either- it's nice that someone's filling a hole for sprint car drivers who don't race midget and vice versa. It seems that's the focus of these series' and it's a noble one while still being a decent business proposition. I just don't think there was a hole to fill this weekend. Heck, I'm 2 hours from Atomic, 3 1/4 hours from Haubstadt and my plan was always Haubstadt.

Cockrum, Bright, Swanson, Westfall, Clouser, Hernandez, Smith, Schudy, Simon, 17GP, Irwin, Nicholson, Russel, possibly Leary, Ballou, Bacon.. I expected to have 28-30 cars. Car count was not a concern in my opinion.

Charles, Atomic and WRG have worked well together for our late model, sprint shows, and the planning for xtreme. I expect that to continue into 2023.

I love Atomic and was planning on going but I must confess that I had wondered what they would get for car count, they had 20 cars there in April for the USAC show and there isn't much of a local contingent to boost the number. The couple of guys that took the wings off in the spring would likely keep it on with the 410's running Saturday as well. At any rate, I would have been there freezing my tail off enjoying the race had it of ran, being from Ohio I try to support any traditional stuff that I can. It seems like it gained a foothold when Waynesfield was going weekly but since then it has tailed off.

Pretty cool to see the loyalty you've earned from those midwest guys for them to drive by Haubstadt to get to Atomic. Good on you, Casey.
