My question is to Kevin.
Put on your thick skin Kevin because this is some heavy criticism and I am not looking to start any fights or create any enemies, but I am a straight shooter and you are carrying the target here.
Why would you schedule a race for the same weekend of an annual event that you know happens every year?
This kind of silly scheduling only hurts the industry by splitting the racers between the tracks. If they were on separate dates the die-hard racers could then race both
events if they so chose to. Now you have created a dilemma of choice and a guessing game of who is going to be where and both tracks are going to suffer decreased entries and sales.
I usually defend you bro because you have greatly supported the 18th scale class and I really appreciate that. But to be honest, I don't think you see some of the harm that may be going on with poor communication and reckless scheduling of ROAR races.
I'm not trying to bash you but I do want you to realize the position you are putting us racers in and not to mention the track owners.
I would prefer to support all the RC events I can regardless of who is holding the race and whomever is sponsoring it. I can only guess that there are others that feel the same way.
I would hope that you might reconsider the date. It would be no different than if you scheduled the Region II Regional Championship on Sept 12-14 at some other track competing with McCulloughs "Race Against Cancer".
