+1 .......Kenny and crew do an awesome job. This is an awesome facility that no one will be disappointed. Kenny his dad and family make everyone who attends a race there feel just that like a part of the family.

Being a track owner is definately a thankless job but I will always be thankful for controlfreakz. Even when I blow out I have a good time

See everyone soon. Let's race!!!

2007 1/8 Nats at Silverbowl Las Vegas comes to mind. Practice was $15 day before the ROAR open practice. Considering inflation, 20 bucks seems plenty fair judging from the pictures I've seen of the Conn. faciltity. The complaining can stop now.

Talking Lets Eats

On a better note than complaining, is it possible to get a listing of area restaurants that have good food? Favorably something other than fast food.
It seems as though when we go to races its always junk food that wins every time.

I know that at the Toledo track we pay rent for the property the track is on and we also financed the track ourselves. If I am not mistaken Cincinnatti is also Club funded with no assistance.

But lets just race

Hank's Family Restaurant in Brooklyn, CT. Food is very good! Similar to Cracker Barrell menu with a full bar!

Kenny, build a facility like that in Utah for half the cost and we will pay whatever you ask and make your bed every morning when we bring your coffee.

How many of you came?

It was world class and considered a really nice on-road track

How many of you been to Ft Myers??? how many race the forgas race the week before the winter nats, and then race the winter nats?? what was it 20 bucks for WEEK for pits.

How many of you paid for there extra's at those tracks??? I know they ask a little bit like 20 bucks for a week for those pit spots thats for a week

""Please stop the complaining."" comments are the best.

This is a forum its ment for discussion of topics and this is a topic,
and for talking over valid points.

I think anyone saying please stop complaining is really the one that is complaining themselfs.

Gesser i am not going to argue with you, Like i said I will be the one paying it just like the rest of you all.

I just for the life of me dont remeber a track doing this, please if i am wrong point out an other instance of it so i can stop complaining
I was in Toledo and I believe I handed Brian Berry money to practice and for a pit space also went Las Vegas and paid to practice there.
Not to mention I was in Messina, Cordoba, Lostallo and lastly Miami.
Having said that I do know what it costs to go racing so If the $20.00 is really that big a deal--stay home. All your doing is setting yourself to complain about anything that may happen.
If you are going to the Nova Rossi Race there this weekend we can talk about it then. At least then we don't look like we dislike each other.
