    Default ** Gorilla in the room?**

    Ok, let's roll.
    2 more years of Eastbay. Then what track takes over? North florida? All-tech?

    I think we will see races split between all tech and GIS, and a shorter Lucas speedweek. They won't be able to replace east bay.....ever.

    For a lot of people, myself included, East Bay IS speedweeks. Things will look a lot different schedule-wise, but no track, or tracks, will ever replace East Bay.

    I figure the GIS deal was made for the sole purpose of replacing EB but I could be wrong.

    What GIS deal?

    GIS has had its spot on the Speedweeks schedule for a long time now. I love the place. Itís one of our local tracks. But I donít see GIS playing any part in replacing East Bayís spot. Maybe Lucas adds a day or two to GIS, but no track is replacing East Bay. EB has a tradition, charm, etc, but the track itself is unlike anything else in the country. It canít be replaced.

    No race track can replace Pennsboro for the DTWC , yet it rolls merrily along. Something will replace Eastbay whether you like it or not.

    2 years is a long way off. Will it be replaced, NO. I'm sure Volusia is going to try to add dates. East bay lost some of it's excitement when the woo sprint cars pulled out. The slm racing has been exciting there is no doubt, but seeing the guys that used to show up there for the sprint car races was dang impressive.

    Carl has just moved it from one $hithoe to the next $hithole. Proud to say I quit following his circus since it left Pennsboro. I'll attend again if it moves to WVMS.

    I've seen some good shows and bad shows at PRP. No way I'd bother at WVMS. Talk about bad racing...

    There was some talk a couple of weeks ago that East Bay may not be done after 2024. Anyone else hear that?

    Its 50/50 that East Bay will be open for an extra year of Speedweeks.

    New owner of N FL Speedway, knowing him it is going to be NICE and most likely will fill the gap

    I predict there won't be a reduction in speed weeks. How it all plays out, I don't know but I do know that the two tracks drivers just came from produced some good racing, especially the last one.
