I said "maybe" , I hope it is not true, I heard it from several racers that called me, but I hope Dana makes a correct decision.

I would hate to see the on-road track go...Unfortunately, the city is making things a little rough on Dana. I am sure Dana will give everyone better details in here or at the Airtronics race.

Default Airtronics on-road Championships <Revelations>

A lot of people have heard this about Revelations "last race"
As Chris pointed out, this city is really making it difficult on Dana.
One of the problems also is loyalty of the drivers.
Every one complains about the track when it is bad, and hardly anyone wants to offer help. Dana tries to do it all himself, and and it can be overwhelming at times. When it comes time to pre-register for a big race like the Airtronics race just two weeks before the race, he had only SIX drivers pre registered! How can you plan a race with that kind of support. He has asked everyone at each of the big races to PLEASE sign up early so he knows how many t-shirts to order, and trophies. But still, hardly anyone will pre-register. The turn out for the weekends for practice and even some of the club races does not even come close to the turn out that the off-roaders come out for. But yet when people hear this may happen, everyone asks why.
The poor turn outs,the problems with the city, constant complaining about the track, would you blame him if it is true. I hate to even think about it, because it is a great track, Dana is very cool, plus I have so much money wrapped up in my equipment, I will lose my butt. I probably have over $18,000 wrapped up into on-road, and will most likely sell most of it off. I have no intentions of going to off-road. But if this does happen, I absolutley understand Danas position. No loyalty, poor turnouts, off roaders running 3 to 1 onroaders, problems with the city.
What would you do?

eliminate all of the RTR offroad kits and I think the turnout difference between onroad and offroad will be the same.

I am so dismay to be hearing all of this. I am a transplant from SV speedway although my loyalty is with SV I have never missed a club or point series or any other race that Rev puts out since RRRoy23 and Kamikaze talked me into racing at 2006 Kyosho race. it is very easy to be spoiled at this track. definitely a better track around. Rev will always have the SVM boys support.
Just say so..........
