You need all elements as I stated but without fans and sponsor's who pays the race teams all i know is Sunset had 130 cars in the pits every Saturday night and the stands were nearly empty and Glenn had to sell the place.
this isn't a good example because he didn't have
to sell the place.....but you are right about needing all three elements to be truly successful
in reference to the bickering over who knows what cayuga should do i respect anyones opinion on racing as long as it makes sense doesn't matter what your past is....if u own, drive, sponsor, a car or work at a track own a track or you like racing.
backing up your ideas with your racing resume is horsesh*t the only credential you need is a computer and to put your name down beside what you write and an opinion....the opinion should speak for itself if you explain it well or it is valid, don't need to know if you were a tire changer, owner, or the owners mistress. as far as a racing resume goes, ultimately our racing resumes and $1.65 will get us an xtra large double double at tims. i'm on a team thats won 4 championships in 4 tries, i won one and a ROY in 2 years racing. who cares i'm just a schmuck like everyone else i have bad ideas all the time and if i have one on the track and it makes someone mad i won't be upset if something is said about it on here.
if there was never conflict there would never be change.....people express opinions about the way things were done somewhere, sometimes it's not pretty but usually both sides come out by the time it all shakes out....i'm sure everyone can agree things aren't good enough that we don't need some change,
there will be more negativity toward some than others and if someone is truly a dick it will show in what they write, and if something is not true it will be exposed at some point but this is racing we have to have thick skin to a cetain extent.
if we all sat around and blew each other in a big mutual admiration society, this wouldn't be a discussion board, and if you want to come and post you are fair game to people's opinions, there is always an opportunity to respond so lets not make this place too vanilla. So Jason is skeptical about the upcoming show. let him be.
my opinion about cayuga is that i don't know what should be done lol, but i don't think weekly racing would work, too big a track and everyone is running somewhere already and there isn't enough money going around....
maybe a late year invitational for thunders and lates and super lates would draw people if there was good money being paid....i'd go for that. or a race before the year begins it would be like the Daytona 500 for local racers.....maybe not lol but i think if you market it right to create hype it with a good purse it may work....
