    Default Florence cancellation

    Why didnít they run a double show today? Whoís decision was it to cancel? Lucas or the track? Everyone is there, a double show today would have been a better idea, to me anyway. The refund deal has got to be a headache for the track.

    That's a really dumb idea. Then the track would have sucked for both shows today and tomorrow's show as well.

    I'm with you Scott. It isn't that hot today. It might have rubbered up today, but that can be fixed pretty quickly.

    The point system is pointless now. The heats will basically look the same tomorrow as they will later today.

    It's my understanding the pits are a mud-bog. Dirt gets soft and mushy when wet which is then called mud. Sometimes you just have to wait for the sun to come out and dry it for few days. Inconvenient? Sure. But it is what it is.

    I'm here, it's not that bad. They made a good choice by not letting anyone else show up today, but it wouldn't effect the cars that are already here. Ive seen worse here.

    Exactly. I think that's why Eldora rolls with the punches and keeps moving stuff back, but runs it all.

    Iím assuming they figured a lot of people wouldnít be able to attend a day race and figured refunding money/allow for exchange was a better option to keep people happy? Plus they get to prep the track good for tonightís show which will have more eyes on it anyway.

    MSKDorf was on the right track. By canceling and reimbursing all ticket holders is a huge loss and a huge pain in the a$$.
    You do the math d!psh!t, $30 x 10,000+ that already paid that you now have to give money back.

    I was pretty much comparing to Eldora but (not a nice word)(not a nice word)(not a nice word)(not a nice word). Having to refund everyone is crazy and has to be a pain in the arse. Still wondering whoís decision it was??? Thank you Mr In The Gas

    Some people just donít get it. Running 2 days to set up Saturday show by points you donít get a chance to get your crap together. Why? Why? Why?

    You must be getting those somewhere else. I've tried about every combo of clicks I can think of. No joy. Can't even attach and image properly. Board software is junk.

    KTM sounds like you need to fiddle with your settings.
