    That is pretty big news as far as scheduling is concerned.

    So WoO lost one of the highest paying events and their only show of the year at Lernerville? Yikes. But hell yes for $50k to win and Lucas.

    The Lucas schedule is huge next season. They’ve added two $50k to wins. Who knows what’s next…

    Only late model special Lernerville has all year. There biggest dates are 2 WOO sprint shows, only time will tell if it comes back to bite them in the rear. And before anyone says it, the Steel City Stampede is not a special race.

    Other then the point fund money WOO is really struggling to elevate themselves… sometimes I think it would be better if we had one tour that paid too 20 in points

    I’ve always been scoffed at for suggesting 1 major series, like your idea though.

    Lucas is stepping it up bringing in some great partners, awesome for the drivers…….long overdue their skills and commitment get paid what their worth.
    Where is the move over flag when you need it?????

    It's quite obvious anymore WoO puts for effort into their sprint car tour than LM. It's their bread and butter. It's almost like the LM tour is a tax write off.

    We need 2 national series or zero. 1 is just a recipe for disaster. Power concentration has been bad for the sport.
    Droop isn't the problem.

    Arizona Speedway - 2 ........ Brushcreek -1
    Alltech -1 .................... Eldora - 8
    East Bay - 6 .................. Richmond -1
    Florence -1 ................. Lawrenceburg -1
    Atomic -6 .................. Circle City -1
    Tazewell -1 .................. Mudlick-1
    Moler -4
    Portsmouth -3 .....................Tyler Co. -1

    Lernerville lost more fans when they started charging for camping than any series can bring back. They'll have a good crowd but I doubt It's packed like 10 yrs. ago.

    One national tour for super late models would be an absolute disaster.

    We’re back to basically STARS and HAT but with a shiny new wrap on it.

    I've been saying for years that I wish the Firecracker was Lucas sanctioned. Bigger names in that series every year. I just hope that the WoO don't schedule against it. As for the track losing their WoO sprint races, no way do I see that happening.
