As for attendance you really can't blame ROAR or the Host track for that. This thread has been up for months so it's pretty safe to assume that the typical crowd that travels knew about the Nationals in advance and chose or could not make this event for what ever reason. Looking at the pics the host track looks like they wen't above and beyond the requirements and it seems like everyone fortunate enough to attend the Nats are having a good time.....
Well low attendance and ROAR. Will never know if another location would of drawn more racers. Guess will have to speculate.

Stop your constant whyning and race.
Didn't the place that was going to hold it go bye-bye and ROAr had to find another place at the last minute?

Yes, for picking a place that the lease was up... Who ever picked them did not do their homework...

Just an FYI, The bid for the race you are talking about.... Hmm.. well there were no other on time bids for the asphalt race that year... And yes when the race was awarded the location was viable, and had an intact lease....

So please take your BS elsewhere when you have no clue what the circumstances are...

The lease wasn't up, the owner had a kinda of a fed problem with another business and closed the track down, nothing to do with ROAR.
But ROAR did step up and get another track in the area to stage the race, pretty damn good in my book.

Congrats to Paul L., for winning this year ROAR mod class. Great job by team AE as well, with 3 cars in the Mains and getting 2nd, 6th, and 8th. Pretty good, once again.

That's not what was stated? Why did the story change? How is a track picked anyways?

That's all past history that has nothing to do with this years race, ROAR has moved to improve it's programs and they are heading in the right direction.

If you don't learn from past mistakes then you will repeat them again.....
