Re: [TrackChasers] Memorial Day Weekend Adventure
- I think it interesting how we have lowered our expectations to coincide with the quality of short track racing in the current age. I don't suspect anyone from the northeast would have called an 18 car Modified count "good" in the 1960's, 1970's, or 1980's.
Just me opinion.
- Here's my thought on the subject. I'd rather see a 40
car field of great cars with lots of passing and the
fastest cars starting in the back. At most tracks
today you're not going to get that.
That being the case I'd rather watch 10 street stocks
battle it out on a 1/4 mile track racing three abreast
and having five different leaders in a 10 lap heat
race than watch 24 World of Outlaw sprinters run an A
feature where the front row car wins and there's maybe
1 or 2 passes for position among the top 10 OR watch
43 Winston Cup cars race on a 2 1/2 mile track where
you couldn't identify any of the cars when they are on
the backstretch because they are so far away or see
them when they are on the front straight because every
idiot at a Winston Cup race stands up for 90% of the
race, let alone the 2-3 hour in/out drive time in
traffic with 90% of the people who are seeing their
one of two races of the year. (yes, I know that was a
run on sentence!)
