    Well Iíve changed my opinion on this....if theyíre gonna do Wednesday/Thursday and Friday/Saturday shows to do double events Iím good with that. I thought they were going to have them on different weekends which I donít think would be a good idea. Assuming they do the World like this Iím looking forward to it. Can you imagine if all the Covid-19 restrictions are lifted by then how rowdy itís gonna be? Could be a week to remember.

    Still a lot of questions. Roger said on Twitter that Friday/Saturday is the 37th with Wednesday/Thursday the 38th, because of ticketing. I have a hard time believing they are going to try to sell separate tickets for Wednesday/Thursday with camping involved.

    Eagerly waiting for more info!

    That's a good point. I laugh at all these early black friday deals and what not and I thought people were losing jobs again because states were closing and people were behind on rent, mortgages, bills etc.

    So let me get this straight, because some have lost their jobs, or have had to take different jobs, or cut hours, we all should stop shopping and having Black Friday deals? I absolutely did my shopping this morning. You do your best to just keep your head up and move on and live your life.

    I applaud Eldora for this, wonder what theyíll do with the World 100. I hope not the same, I understand why they did it this way for the Kings Royal. I assume the same maybe for The World 100, but I hope not. Iíll end up buying tickets to this years and selling them. I canít take off that much work. Already have a vacation in June.

    Isn't there more important stuff for people to spend their money on? Maybe save instead also. Just because it's not needed now, doesn't mean 3+ months from now it won't be needed. For some places where people live. It's a pretty $hitty situation right now and is going to be for the months to come.

    Folks need to get out and support the businesses out there. They're closing up 1 by 1. Eventually you'll have 1 place to go eat, 1 place to shop. I know that's a overly aggressive observation but I hope you get the picture. Cover your face, wash your hands, live your life.

    Nah, youíre right. We will end up with Amazon and Wally World. Do what you can to be smart as you said and live. Dang right itís hard on a lot of people, and filled with more uncertainty than usual, but we get one life. We havenít worked a lot of overtime this year, but Iíve kept my job and wasnít off except for one week when my wife had a COVID scare. Just hope we get lucky. Though my work is having more cases every week, it hits our jobsite, we are probably screwed. We are construction guys, cleanliness and following rules isnít our strong suite. My wife has restrooms and that unlike us so that helps, but they arenít any better.

    Thereís always better stuff to spend money on than gifts and some of the dumb crap we buy. But at the same time, canít just stop everything. Gotta try and keep some normalcy especially when ya have kids. And try to help keep the economy going. I bought a nice used SAV(fancy smaller SUV), because I just said fuk it. Sold my truck, crazy world we are in, I just said to he!! with it, Iím doing it, going to live my life. Been wanting to for about 1 1/2 years and just pulled the trigger.

    2 kings royals, GREAT, being Eldora it's going to be costly on motors and the tire bill is going to be up there also. That goes the same for every big show they plan on doubling up next year.

    Count them

    Kings Royal
    World 100
    Dream

    I thing it's great for the fan that can't get tickets. I think it can make a team that is struggling cash wise make some hard decisions. It also may make a team close down. That's something we really do not need. As I said at the top, Eldora is a motor killer and she eats up a lot of tires. Few are going to walk away from these double shows showing a profit.

    Few walk away from any shows making a profit. There aren't many cash struggling teams that go to eldora anyway. If anything maybe a team that doesn't usually go to eldora may show up for the 2nd event hoping they have an advantage.
