Mike Boylan @ the IIC...is something in the works?

Found it curious to see Mr. Boylan attending the IIC as merely a "spectator". Awfully long way to go simply to watch for a day or two.

Could there be something in the works between he and Scotty? Racing series? New racing organization?

Thoughts?

Even longer way to go twice!! Sorry Mike, but that was a good one, but look at the bright side......more miles.

Good race promoters/directors are always willing to look at what OTHERS are doing when successful.

Mike is NO dummy - he's got the #1 race in the WORLD, but does that mean it can't be better?

Both events are great. Scotty and Mike are friends.

Just curious - but when you say Snowbirds is the #1 race in the world, what are you basing that on ?

HAHA wow I was kinda surprised to see this one... Scotty and I are friends and talk quite a bit. I wanted to go hang out and watch some great racing at a great event! Had a lot of Florida racers there to cheer on too!! Had an awesome time - and the IIC was fantastic to say the least.

BRING BACK THE U.S. TRIPLE CROWN!!!

Make it 4 races instead of 5. 1 drop, best 3 scores.

Vegas, Cleveland, Birds, and 1 other race.....to be run at a different track from year to year. ie - The Gate, CEFX, lots of other tracks too with the facility and ability to have a big race. Maybe the Nats? (travels anyway, instead of adding another big race to the season)

just an idea.

The triple crown used to be huge. lots of prestige. wonder why it went away? might be worth looking into.

He was there for the Burger King convention ... the IIC was just incidental.

I have to applaud Mike Boylan for going to Vegas. looks like he wanted to see what was the buzz and how he could use that that also make the snowbirds better. in the end I don't think this is a snowbirds vs vegas issue but a how to make a big race better thing. with Mike and Scotty working together all that can come out of it is the best races.

Doug,

I think based on total NUMBERS, Marketing...and the fact that the SNOWBIRDS receives so much attention world wide...it HAS to be billed as the #1 race in the world.

There are other races that generate WORLDWIDE interest, but Boylan's event draws the most attention from the widest variety of racers...both in attendance..and those who are WATCHING from a distance on who's there. (I think their video coverage last year helps prove that)

...this year with the change in venue to a better hotel...I think you'll hear more POSITIVE comments about the 'Birds' than ever before.

(NOTE: These are my personal beliefs and opinions. I have not attended a SNOWBIRDS, nor a IIC event, nor do I plan too anytime soon....BUT I do follow both)

If you have not attended either race how can you say one is better than the other??

My idea of the best race in the world does not include racing at 4:00 in the morning.

But if I were to attend a race that wasn't oversold and racing finished at lets say 6:00 to 8:00 pm and left me time to do other things, combined with seeing some of the best racing in the world, run by the best crew in the business........tough decision

In my book Vegas has snowbirds covered...........no question
