Default The Future of Trains and Lanes off Road Racing Season 2008

Hello races out there, im starting this thread to talk about Trains and Lanes off Road Raceway in Easton, Pa. Recently the 2008 season has gone through a few major changes to our racing program, the first being a new race director, and also the opportunity for all electric cars to run with the nitro cars as well. And quite frankly with gas at 4.00 a gallon, it's nice having a local venue to the Lehigh Valley, PA. However as race director i have noticed a lack in attendance at our races. Whether this was due to previous years and what went on? I really don't know. Lets take today for instance, its 2:30 on ONE OF THE BEST SUNDAYS WE HAVE HAD IN A WHILE, and im home after leaving the track due to the 5 racers that came out today? Typing in a forum? I should be running the 2wd electric main now.

And i find it strange, because if you look back to our season opener, which was on a national holiday, we had a solid 12 races. 6 2wd buggy and 6 nitro? And that was a national holiday. And you had today, and we struggled to see six races there?

So im asking you, the person that stopped coming to our track, Why did you stop? Was it the people, the track itself? Race entry's? Payouts,

This year i was hoping to have one of the best racing seasons there yet? Honestly where else can you find a track around Eastern Pa that runs 4wd electric buggies? Or 10th scale trucks? Lets face it no one? So heres your shot to tell me what happend? What would you want to change? Im looking for a fresh new start? Anyone agree?


thanks for the time,

Tim Stuart

It may not be any of the things you think. Our track attendance has been down this year. Last year we had 6 or more 4 wheelers every Saturday; this year virtually none. We have enough for mod truck and mod buggy and that is basically all. Gas prices are starting to hit hard. I have been car pooling with a guy but his wife is now ill and he can't afford RC and her bills.

This may go on for some time before it gets better. Keep after it and give it some time.
