    Just like the guy that said i make the best dam horse whip in the world .. Dont mean a thing when no one makes a horse buggy no more...It on its way that there will be 3 tracks that run lates in each state and them being mostly the ones to get the big shows.. the rest that stay open will run mods and SS and 1 or 2 other class...Nascar killed the small tracks and now it happen to dirt Lates.....

    It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

    Gimmick, novelty, whatever. It was racing in December, hanging out with my friends and having an enjoyable time!
    The racing was what it was, reminded me of Macon. You know there's gonna be lots of cautions until the herd gets thinned down a bit, then it's game on.
    The feature Friday was great. Saturday was good... I've seen way worse.

    As with any first time venture, I'm sure there will be things that will be done different next time but there were many things I thought they did very well.

    I hope the promoter made a killing and this event grows into something even bigger and better!! A big thanks to all that made this event happen!!

They have put on big late model races for years and have taken the weekly fan from other tracks that saved their money to go to the LaSalle race, he didnt care then!! Special events PERIOD have ruined the weekly tracks, it has nothing to do with "novelty" events.
    As far as sitting down and discussing things with Tony, there is no discussing anything with that man. If you actually knew him I wouldn't have to tell you that.

    Tony has only 2 real issues with this race:

    1) He's not making the money from it.
    2) He does not like Cody.

    That's it
    3) He was probably drunk

    How many of you still support your local tracks during weekly shows (The 2 or 3 track with in your area) and not just go to big races when ever one is in the area?
    Not trying to fight; just asking..

    Well,I used to support my local race track. It's 16miles from my shop. But now it only races big paying events that charge me more for a pit pass but without much of a payout increase. So now I travel almost 2hrs or more on a weekend to race at other IL tracks who pay us our winnings at the end of the evening and thank us for coming. Feeling wanted is sometimes just as big of a deal as a racer.

    Why is it such an issue with you and this Izzo guy as to why someone puts their own/sponsors money, reputation, and countless hours of work on the line to try and put on a show for the fans and drives in the middle of Winter when it affects zero other tracks or promoters??
    By all accounts I've read and people I have talked to they were very pleased with what they saw and are looking forward to going again. Yes they said there were some issues but name me one race or track that has ever been perfect.
    I'm guessing there is more to this deal than what is being laid out here.....

    LOL. Oh, I get it! Tony has no room to complain about any of this. If you had attended weekly shows there on a regular basis, you'd understand what others are saying.

    I do not attend weekly shows anymore, and that only started happening 3 years ago. When you have a promoter that is a drunk and some of his former helpers run off drivers and fans. I have no intentions to show up. Nothing has changed for the better. One night I remember the promoter decided to run his own tow truck. Sure as heck their was a wreck, he stepped out of the truck and about 8 empty beers cans fell out. Just to save a buck, what a joke. I have seen enough SH!T shows in my life. Time to hit the BIG SHOWS.
