Allow me to answer for El Will.
- Hi, guys.
Andy. I talked to Dave Kittey today and he wasn't sure that he'd ever met
you. He says to tell you to introduce yourself should the occasion present
Gary J. The reservations are made and I will be at Pahrump on Dec. 3. Let me
know if you plan on attending and I'll try and hook up with you. Thanks again
for the date.
This past weekend I had the rare chance to add 2 tracks to my list that had
been closed for 20+ years. Both shows suffered from their owners
inexperience. Neither facility was totally ready. One was paved, the Chemung
Speedrome, and will be a state of the art facility upon completion. The other
is dirt, the Latrobe Speedway, and is changed little, except for new
bleachers and buildings. Both ran in the afternoon because the lights were
inoperable, yet ran into darkness. Both ran 4 divisions when 1 or 2 would be
better for getting your feet wet. Both had inefficient and inconsistent
officiating despite the fact that most of the officials themselves had
experience at other tracks. Neither had concession stands able to handle the
decent yet less than capacity crowds on hand. The first has delusions of
granduer, already booking a NASCAR modified tour race for next year that the
facility won't be able to handle even when completed! . The other plans to run
a more economical show on Sunday nights that probably won't have any touring
series, at least for the first year. I wish them well, but have a better
feeling for the success of Latrobe. Just my opinion. Gordy
