    Lawrenceburg is a nice facility with a racing surface that also leaves much to be desired.
    Droop isn't the problem.

    Arizona Speedway - 2 ........ Brushcreek -1
    Alltech -1 ........ Eldora -4
    East Bay - 6
    Florence -1
    Atomic -4
    Tazewell -1
    Moler -1
    Portsmouth -1

    The place was pretty packed last night. I'm gonna guess ticket sales are strong, car count is pretty good, and Lucas Oil, Short,and Portsmouth all have a solid relationship. Unless it goes back to West Virginia it should probably stay where it's at.

    Lucas oil races have actually been somewhat of a snoozefest for quite a while, the more tech that goes into these cars, the more the racing suffers, Dirt Late models is looking more and more like Nascar, especially with Lucas and WOO teams with out of control spending and comped things from corporate sponsors of the 2 series.

    They need to go back to having flat noses and implement a ground clearance rule for them. The racing would be better if the body rules were reeled back in again and the cars slowed down.

    There is no doubt a combination of poor track surfaces and these out of control bodies are contributing to sub par racing. But having to deal with $hitty facilities are another. If some of these places would think about the paying customers it would be nice. I would be ashamed to think as an owner that the bathrooms facilities are adequate for both sexes. Maybe Carl is trying to keep up the tradition of promoting another $hithole like Pennsboro.

    The last decent DTWC was a Lawrenceburg, no fan of that place, but it was far the last decent DTWC. Atomic was horrible.

    if you are going to have a so-called "crown jewel" the facilities should be of the same caliber. Lucas Oil Speedway not a $hithole, Batesville not a $hithole, I-80 not a $hithole, Cedar Lake not a $hithole, Eldora, Knoxville, the short track at Lowes, Las Vegas, Texas Motor Speedway, Sawyer's VMS again not a $hithole. If your facilities are a dump sorry you need to step up or step aside.

    Drop the lucas oil sanctioning, pay 50,000 for 1st and pay the 50 grand you saved theu the field. And u can put whatever the sanctioning fee into the purse also. And no series provisionals.

    I would not be surprised at all if Carl actually doesn't pay a sanctioning fee on this event. {Just a guess from me, but I think this is a race Lucas wants on their calendar}

    One year at Atomic was bad. Not sure how that makes it all horrible. When Schrader knew he was losing the track and we had high winds and sun, that was the turd. Other than that, Atomic is the best place it has been at.
    Up in the air who my next “favorite” driver is. Really losing hope on Bloomer getting anywhere back to “normal”.

    Better question: Why is Carl Short held in such high regard ( like being in the HoF) ?? He has never cared about his events having great racing. Definitely not a Pennsboro or PRP.

    Lawrenceburg would be the ideal place. the 2009 dtwc was a good race. the promotor just needs to hire a prep guy. the 2009 race was prepped by another guy...tim Johnson.
