    If you rank the dirt tracks in America 1-400 by good quality racing, I think 95% of the Lucas schedule is made up of tracks ranked 350-400.

    Portsmouth has to be about 399, while Cherokee is 400.

    One meaningful pass in six heat races ó Huddy got JD in 3 and 4 on the last lap of Heat 5 ó and the Flo cameras missed it so we could watch the top two run single file to the checkers.

    Yea the racing pretty much stunk. B Shepp ran in on Marlar going into 1 I believe and the car immediately pushed. It's the same every time they hit the track. Unless there is 2 distinct grooves it is was today's racing is all about. Give the trophy and the check to t-mac.

    If it is to be as 1 laned up for the feature as it was during the heats then it should or could be a cakewalk for pole sitter Garrett Smith ?

    Excellent facility but terrible race track. I donít get to worked up about the heat races but the feature determines more so if I will go back to a track. I havenít been back to Portsmouth for years now. If they would move it back to atomic or try lawrenceburg again I would go.

    PRP is definitely one of the worst racetracks in the country.

    A lot of the races this year was not that good to be honest.

    I thought the Legends cars racing was good. Maybe its the cars and not the track?

    Remember when Sheppy came from 21st to win. Im convinced its the current cars and format that makes for this sh!ttie racing.

    BUT....BUT.....Carl will keep having the race because 215 total cars showed up and a strong crowd.

    Think Sheppy came from 12th to win. Every post is essentially correct. We have been to every Portsmouth DTWC and unless something miraculous happens tonight this is our last. The racing sucks, the bean field campground is awful, etc., etc.

    Actually the last two heats were fairly entertaining. No passing for the lead but plenty for other positions. It is a shame the track didn't come in until then. However I think the track prep itself was pretty good. If it is as good as it ended up last night, at least the second half of the feature should be entertaining. Looking forward to it.

    Agreed, the racing was not that great.

    I just wish the cameraman would pan out, so we can see the racing throughout the field. This is not NASCAR on mile and half tracks. I would rather see the racing throughout the field than close up shots of two cars following each other.

    Iím with BigDaddy84 on this one. This year is the first year I havenít come back. The track just doesnít put forth good racing. Move it to Lawrenceburg and i will go back, otherwise Carl has got my last nickel.

    Is Portsmouth a great race track? NO

    Is Portsmouth a single file track? NO

    It's somewhere in the middle.

    Stands packed, parking packed, camping packed, huge car counts, Why would Carl Short move the race?
