... the forecast was for 70 - 80 degrees this Saturday (certainly not the case up here in the Northeast... but pretend for just a minute)..... and if you decided that you absolutely were going to go see a race at a local speedway... not some special show... not some touring group.... but a regular Saturday night show of Modifieds, Sportsman, Outlaw stocks in 2017...(dirt or asphalt), or maybe a regular Saturday night show at a local sprint car track... What track would you attend this Saturday, and why?
- It has to be a track that still in operation. (Sorry guys, but that takes Flemington, EWS, Nazareth, Reading, Harmony, Alcyon, Pleasantville out of the picture guys...)
- Has to be a regular show (regular weekly admission price.)
- Please don't use this thread to tell us how and why you don't go to the races anymore - we get it...
- Please don't answer with tracks that are no longer in operation.
The reason I am asking is because if a track owner/track management happens to check out our board, I think it would be valuable information for them to know where you would go on a nice Saturday night in 2017, and probably just as important, why you would choose to go there.

Reasons why you would attend a regular show at this particular track:
We have folks who visit this board from all over the country, so please let us know where you live, where you'd go, and why you would choose that track.
I want short track racing to survive, but let me be super clear on this.... I'm not one of those guys that's going to beat the drum that we all have to go out and support our local speedway because we have to. I'm done with sitting through a poorly run show out of some sense of allegiance to the sport... But if there is a local dirt, or asphalt track that is running a good weekly program, it's going to be real hard for me to stay home when the weather's nice on a Saturday night in 2017. My goal this year is to go to twice as many races as I did last year. Well run shows will make that very possible.
I hope that there's still a few of you guys out there that feel the same way!
So don't be shy... Let us know what town/state you live, what local track (regular Saturday night show) you would attend, and why.
