You couldn't ask for a better track layout guy than Art, he is the best

Lock in with Andy, He's a hard working guy that is/was willing to do what ever it took to get it done, glad to hear he is still getting around a track, please tell him I said Hi.

Hope to see you at the track ....

Mike I do agree with most of what you say however, most of the drivers that are given 50% are not at the track driving simply because of interest but have other monetary obligations. Yes 50% of $100.00 is still $50.00 and yes some of us still can't afford it (we're that broke). The economy is unsually bad. Tracks, possibly because of overhead dont make it as attractive. Example hold a race (club race) winner gets $50 or $100. This will at least cover gas and lunch possibly even toll. If not monetary compensation Bodies etc useful stuff that a racer will use. Ok lets say it a Store owned track the store could offer store credit as a prize which for one generates more traffic to the store forcing a sale eg. winner gets $40.00 off any kits in the store, big ticket items I think you should see where this goes more business!!!!

Ive only ever been to the Coral Springs Track and the guys there were a great help for me... Considering I was just 2 days in with my nitro... I'd like to see some other tracks....
