    Default dtwc safety

    Someone needs to get the kids waving flags off the fence while cars are on the track. It's cute till someone gets hurt. Could also confuse the divers.

    Those kids have been there ALL YEAR doing that. You think the drivers are looking up there when theyíre going 120mph? Karen

    Snagger, Just because those kids have been doing it all year does not make it right from a safety stand point.

    I see this at a few tracks. Never understood why the track would allow this under race conditions.

    Theyíre not even on the fence. Theyre on the walkway behind the flag stand.

    It serves no purpose other than parents can't control their kids. It's not playground. They were 1 to two feet off the fence. Looking from bleachers in turn one, the kids waving flags are blocking the view onto turn four.

    As far as safety, the kids actually got hit with mud when drivers got close to fence and they jumped back. Then right back to the fence. In years past those would have been rocks.

    These parents clearly don't care about their kids.

    People don't pay good money for these premier events to watch kids playing.

    And then when they sue and the track gets folded, whoís the Karen?

    If itís the same kid that goes to Atomic though, I will say, heís good.
    Up in the air who my next ďfavoriteĒ driver is. Really losing hope on Bloomer getting anywhere back to ďnormalĒ.

    Now the bit**ING is about some young fan waving flags. If you ever watch, the kid is only doing what the guy in the flag stand is doing. Whats he hurting ? Absolutely nothing. How many Karens can you fit on the flag stand..

    1. You donít think LM get up to 120 on the straights? 3/8 mile at 14.6 seconds is an average of 93MPH, an AVERAGE. Ok maybe they only go 110. 2. Any race track assumes no liability as soon as you step through the gate. Also any real fan knows you can get hit with a rock sitting in the top row. The kid isnít waving his flag through the fence and sticking his hands out. Iíve sat directly behind him 5 times this year and he just mimicks what Randy does. And heís actually good at it, Iím not sure if itís the same kid I saw doing it atomic. If someone did want to sue the track, the Colemanís have more than enough money to do what they want. PRP will NEVER fold unless the state buys them out to do something with the scioto River. 3. As if yíall out of towners donít bitch enough about Portsmouth, youíre picking on like a ten year old boy whose at the races EVERY WEEKEND. Iím sure his parents have spent more money bringing him and their kids to the track all year than your little DTWC hobo village get away. Sit back and donít worry about what other people are doing. The kid gets into it and is fun to watch.

    Snagger I agree if the parents and the track officials are ok with it I don't know why anyone else isn't. Plus like you said he is taking interest in racing which you don't see as much as you used to.

    I'm not an out of towner. I've been going there over 20 years. I doubt they spent more money at that track than me. I doubt the insurance company would find these kids very cute. The insurance company could 100% shut them down.

    I'm not the only one that finds it annoying, I'm just the only one that will say anything. I just hate to see anyone get hurt. I don't want to see the track shut down, I enjoy the place.

    One bad wreck or flip on the frontstretch could really throw debris into the fence, it has happened several times, I think Boggs flipped there one time.

    Just let the kids wave their flag from the stands.

    Does anyone really not care about these kids? wow

    Agreed.

    It is sad that track officials have to "parent" kids at racetracks. A lot of "parents" take their kids to the races and start drinking and never pay any attention to the kids throughout the night.

    With that being said, there are a lot of other parents who actually parent their kids and set good examples for them.

    You hit the nail on the head. There are a lot of "parents" that should not be parents.

    Why don't you call the track or Carl Short and voice your concerns instead of on a chat forum??? Seems more logical to me.

    Youíre the only one who would say anything but youíre only man enough to get on 4m and post it instead of saying it to their parents I guess. And if youíve been there all season why wait until now? The kid has been there literally all year. Turn 1 side of the flag stand is where they always sit.

    ďI just donít want to see anyone get hurtĒ Posts it on 4m where probably less than 5% of fans in the country will ever see it, where more than 90% of 4m members have not and never will attend PRP.
