Don't know why they don't push off from the chute,makes no sense to push on to the track then push em again.
Several things out of the tracks control last night,I feel like they could've ran the show quicker though,Thank goodness only two classes.
Best part is the NWO 40 was ran.Got to see several peeps hadn't saw in a while!🏁🏁

And the concession stand line 🤦🏻*♀️. My kiddo waited over an hour for food. And, being the smart kid he is, came back with enough cheeseburgers for the 3 of us!!

Was great to see a lot of our racing family last night!!! Looking forward to another great racing season with memorable Kodak moments. 🇺🇸❤️🍻🏎️👏🎣

I hope Paragon will look at last night and evaluate what they can do better the rest of the season. Sadly, they have a reputation for running late programs. And it continued last night. Granted there were unforeseen circumstances. On their schedule it said racing at 7pm. No mention of qualifying. Watering the track during the red flag, but making the hot lap group drive endless laps to roll it in, I don't get that. First heat rolled off at 9:03pm. An hour to wait for food is unacceptable, especially with the amount of kids in attendance. Kudos to the HUGE number of fans that did support last night. I parked in the corn field. I wanna go back to their April 13th show, but I'm hesitant to sit through another late show.

I went with a friend and we made it all the way to the end. Two classes ran, 40 sprints and 18 modifieds. Sprint feature was done at 1 AM. i have to be honest, the entire program was brutal death march. I lasted through it. . . but doubt any new person would want to return. this was damn near Weaber Valley material.

I also hope that Paragon takes a deep inward look and figure how to get a program like that done by 9:30-10:00 PM.

There was a lot out of their control. You can't fault the track for someone flipping and then transporting its just part of it unfortunately. Once they got going the show moved at a swift pace. A couple years ago I went down there and the lighting was not that great so big improvements with the lights. We had to leave around 11 I had a 2 hour drive and up for work at 4 this morning. All in all it was a good show for what i saw. The heat races were really good.

One of my best buddies was there and he said the heats were so good he thought he should pay again for the feature. So they had a medical condition in the stands? And a driver transport? Thatís going to be tough to overcome. I do want to say itís great to hear about the improvements. I havenít been to Paragon since 82 or 3. Hopefully get back there this year
