Default Favorite Race Day ?

So just wondering. For most, the weekends are race time. Which weekend day do you prefer and why ??
My club raced on Sundays and it was good but it seemed we were missing out on many of the church going folks. So we tried Saturdays and although some really liked it, many of the people we were catering to ended up having to work on Saturdays !! BLASPHEMY !!
So what day has been good for you and your club or race group ?

Well, since racing is a religion. Sunday has always been the better day.

I've never seen a successful Saturday RC On-Road program that's gone the distance.

Sundays are always full here in So-Cal

My favorite race day was Bob & Jims Monday night Nationals in Riverside Ca, back in the 90's

Can't have my cake and eat it too. I enjoy weekend race days because of the open track time. However, I don't like burning half my weekend. Fortunately, I have a couple tracks I can go to. One that generally runs either a Sat. or Sun. program about twice a month, the other runs almost weekly on Fri. nights. Even though the Friday nights are shorter I like getting the track time without burning a Sat. or Sun. every weekend. I feel fortunate to have what I consider an almost perfect routine that balances tracktime and life.

We race Wednesday evenings year round and always have a decent turnout.
The weekend onroad events always have a lower turnout.
