Two words. Suck it. I don't get on your track and bash it to helll. Go back to your pacifier and suck, suck suck


Was hoping for more intelligent rhetoric than this. Oh well.[/quote]


Sorry I allowed myself to be brought down to your level. It reminds me of a guy on Hoseheads who bashes everything about Port Royal. Yet most of what I've seen of Port makes me want to go there more than anywhere else.

In five years when half the tracks you go to or watch ain't racing anymore, I'll think of you and say. Gee, If only he'd of said one nice thing.....

Yep, and another one may be biting the dust this year-promoter at E. Moline said he was done. I30 held its last race this weekend.

Actually, I feel like this has been a trend the last 5 years or so. I can only think of one time this year that I thought the show dragged on. The 4 Crown has gotten to where they run it off quick for as much as they have racing. I was very happy with how they ran the show off. Almost no down time, kept the show moving. Not like the old days when they would water 4 times a night, and it would get more dusty.

Paragon is what it is....They choose to run 5 and 6 classes on a consistent basis....been that way for awhile now....I choose not to go there because of this....Maybe they can change this for 2023 and the future. The track can be really good with a little work and less cars. Now the Lawrenceburg situation is frustrating. I have been critical of the track over the years...So much so, they blocked me on Twitter for bashing the track years ago. Saturday was a much better track even with all the dust and rocks, with the groove right on the fence. What I cant understand is why cant you sell tickets in a timely fashion so patrons do not miss Hot Laps and or Quals???....They just don't seem to be very fan friendly??? And I have found out that the Promoter is not very welcoming of Drivers and T Shirt Trailers??.....There is always an exception to this, Woo race being an example.....If I am off base, let me know.

USA Raceway in Tucson was recently sold to a developer of commercial/industrial properties. There hasn't been any racing there in 6 or 7 years, but we still had hope.

I agree on the front gate. either needs sped up or a handicap quick lane. (Uncle 83) was lucky enough to have a couple wave him up at Gaines race or he said he probably wouldn't have made the fourty minute line)

For what it’s worth, one of the owners responded to a comment of mine on Facebook saying he “will not have more than 4 classes in a night next year”. Which is welcomed news.

I give them a little bit of a break with it being the first year. With only a few exceptions, I don't go to shows with more than 3 classes. I also don't go to shows with 2 classes that have to be pushed, if they add a third class.
