Jeff, I don't think the ticket prices had much to do with the dismal turnout at Route 66 Raceway. At the Englishtown event, Sunday's General Admission was $63 ($4 higher than Route 66), and the turnout was good.
As far as Norwalk is concerned, all of the seats are reserved; there are no General Admission seats. The prices are Friday $50, Saturday and Sunday $55 each day, and parking is free for the entire event. That is why the Bader family sells out the place every year, even for the LODRS Divisional race; I expect the stands to be full at Norwalk. Enjoyed the article as always; keep up the great work!
Hey Burkster, I have to say I agree. NHRA Epping was great TV great side by side racing. I wonder how much NHRA paying the Pro Stock guys filling the field with old Pontiacs and the Chevy Cobalts?
The Matt Smith dive was a disgrace. I would guess a payback from when she took a dive to help him get the title few years back. How Angie was actually acting happy, I have no idea. A .238 light and she wins? Really… LOL! Matt says pushrod issues. The reason you didn't get feedback is nobody cares about the bikes. I wonder if Shirley woulda been grinning like that if Connie let her have one back in the day... Guessing, uhhhh, no!
I still have to mute Mr. Force; the babble is toooo much.
I wish McGaha best of luck. Checkbook can buy championship-winning equipment but can’t cut a decent light for you. I’m sure now that Yates been fired team will really take off...
Street Outlaws show is ridiculous but I think people like the doorslammers. I mean come on, mobile lighting units, fake cop pullovers?
I also enjoyed the IHRA broadcast from Grand Bend on MotorManiaTV. Very cool nice Garlits interview. Good to see Leo Zynda double up also.

You are very correct in your assessment of ticket sales. Not just drag racing but all forms of entertainment outside of TV. No matter what we are told our economy at the street level is not good. Joe Sixpack is still fearful and budget conscious. Spending $200-300 for a day at the track is a long reach any more. It is very visible on ESPN when they show the stands.
