The posted video must not realistically portray the actual grip level. It shows many instances where cars spin out.

Traction is not a problem at the "FORT"

I think it's mainly due to the location. It's so far from everybody, except those who live in Florida. I was considering it but then discovered it's a 13hr drive for me, and I live in North Carolina. So that was that.

I'm sure the sponsored pros can afford to fly in and race, but not the rest of us.

Buddy That is not a nice thing( 2-3-4) to say about my friend and sponsor! As for promoting ? We have a state race(FSEARA) there before the Nationals . I won't be attending either because its 6 1/2 hours away and it's to far for some of us old folks to go .

I dare say you have not been racing as long as I have. It's been that way since I started in 1979. There are sponsored drivers of all kinds in each class. Look at real racing they have all sorts of drivers competing against each other. All major races have drivers of all abilities racing against each other- that's life..Just say you don't want to go because it's to far for you.
As for Trinity you have not a clue.
