    Default Spring Nat'ls @ Pondarosa

    Brandon Hardgrove is a crook !!!!! Gets on facebook at 3, 4, and 5 oclock talking about how great the track is and the great field of cars,says come on out. They have the track rolled in and ready,but the fan count is low, so then he says canceled due to track conditions but never even put a car on it. THEN he refused to refund any one. He is also the owner at Lake Cumberland speedway witch btw is where the Spring Nat'ls are at tonight. I hope he has the same low turn out tonight for being such a a-ho!e.A lot of time and money wasted for a bunch of teams and fans. Hope other series look at this for future reference. WE will never be back at either track as long as he has any thing to do with them.

    Will the race be rescheduled and the tickets purchased from last night be used for a rain check?

    That's generally what happens. although some only want a "refund" and raise hell when they're not offered one. I thought people would know by now (it's 2024) that if the weather is iffy and gate admission is going to break you, you should wait for better weather before opening your wallet to watch a race. Right or wrong, this happens every year somewhere and people complain..... every time

    The fans and teams should have stuck together and threatened to burn down the place or said ok we will go to his next race tonight and not show up leaving him screwed. Seems like he is a crook.

    Talking out of both sides of his mouth. It sounds like he has the makings of being a good politician ?

    Save your ticket and use it when the race gets rescheduled.

    Yea, keep complaining on 4m, that'll fix it!!!! I get it, some promoters shouldn't be promoters, but we hear this same complaint every year. It is what it is

    This is correct. It's rare a track offers a refund. People should know this by now. If the Daytona 500 gets rained out and ran on Monday, they don't offer refunds.

    His mistake was not calling it off mid-afternoon. But he thought they could roll it in. People would have complained had he not tried. As Ray Cook said, it was a no-win situation.

    I am pretty sure he planned on racing. It was the drivers that thought the track was not going to come around. There were lots of soft spots that were going to turn into big holes. They didn't want to tear up their equipment. That was my understanding.

    I'm pretty sure the teams didn't want to get on the track. These days, dirt late models can't handle much of any surface irregularities.

    I think all tracks should offer a package deal where they offer on up a package deal with 1 of every item on the menu for something like $ 12.00 !

    When I lived in Florida, the minor league baseball team had "all you can eat and a seat" promotions. That's when I would attend.
