    Default Dont knock Volusia

    Its a shame what has happened with the track. But they have had alot of rain over the last week. Also they have had 167 cars the past 2 days. Thats alot. Lets not trash a track that has a huge car count and went through alot of rain on Saturday and Sunday. Also at least they tried. We have seen races like these at Eldora, Bristol, Atomic, Brownstown, and other tracks.

    More flips at Volusia than at the Chili Bowl last weekend. Shame that WoO actually thinks it's ok to race on a surface like that. Despicable!!!!!!!!!!!!

    They deserve to get trashed for all the brand new equipment thatís been junked. If itís rained that much just cancel. What a pathetic start to racing season. Canít believe more guys havenít loaded up.

    This time of year , it is good to see any kind of late model racing. It is really great to see so many different racers. When I went to Volusia several years ago the track was dusty , but I still enjoyed the racing.

    It was treacherous last year. Junk this year. Woo scheduled this extra weekend. They own the track. Get it right. It's an embarrassment.

    Money grab, nothing more, nothing less. For the field of slm that showed up they didn't need all the crate cars. It's obvious the crate guys will come. So moving forward give them dates for next year. Get the slm teams and fans in and out. What is the first thing everyone notices about race tracks. Do they run a efficient program ? It's the first thing a promotor should be concerned about.

    From the fan count I see from Dirtvision, they certainly need the back gate revenue from other racing divisions.

    This race doesnít need front or back gate revenue. Itís all about streaming subscriptions.

    They are getting trashed for making blatantly idiotic comments like hard racing is causing all the accidents...

    They deserve all the bad pub they can get. It has been a circus from the start. I have never seen that many late models upside down in a year let alone 2 nights. I hope they woke up to empty pits. WRG and Sam Driggers should be embarrassed, but Iím sure they are still counting the cash.

    Thumbs up

    For thew select few on here that have decided to unload their thoughts the track or series.
    Don't try to be a promoter; you likely would suck at it.
    No one can predict the future and know that the track would have been this rough or known how many dang cars that would have shown up to race.
    You deal with what god gives you.
    The best promoters often think outside the box.
    For the one who stated just cancel; that's a good idea after all the teams, crews, fans, and series officials are already there after they spent the last few weeks getting ready and loading up the trailers and haulers and spent all that fuel money.
    The best a track can do is make the effort to get the shows in.
    Nothing in life is going to be perfect especially in motorsports with the outcome.
    They say you have to be nuts to want to be a track owner / promoter.
    If thats the case you can put me in that category because for the longest time that has been something that I have wanted to do myself, so I try to understand where that are coming from before I open my mouth.
    Before you ask if I've got money invested in a race team and have ever worked on a race car or a torn-up race car the answer is yes, and I have been for a long time with some of my close friends.

    Took us 10 months to get a seat we ordered from Butlerbuilt last March (2021).
    If it wasn't for Chris Ferguson, we were going to cancel the order for that seat.

    Just my thoughts.

    The WRG and all involved, especially track maintenance personnel donít want to see the holes in the surface! They are doing the best that can be done to correct the situation while keeping idle time to a minimum.
    Hopefully the rain stays away, Iíd like to see a full day of racing.

    You make a long post about how people shouldnít complain and then you complain about it taking 10 months to get a seat. LOL

    my only problem with this is people love to (not a nice word)(not a nice word)(not a nice word)(not a nice word) on small town tracks who may have a rough night even though they are doing the best they can with what they have to work with. A track like volusia with its backing should not have track issues this bad. Doesn't make sense to me that people have no problem running the true grassroots tracks into the ground but must protect the "big guys" at all costs. That said, I try not to throw shade at any track because I know how hard it is and how much you have NO control over.

    They have done everything they can to turn people away. Watching qualifying of 100 crates. Sitting around watching track prep that makes zero improvements. Sent home after enduring hours of the nonsense and still not seeing a feature.

    They deserve blame. When you know the track is bad, but still spend a hour or so hotlapping/qualifying the 602s and 604s.
