Went all 3 nights as a fan in the stands. They have been getting hit pretty hard on social media over the dust bowl conditions. It was Flemington on a sunny day bad. Bad enough that sitting in turn one you would lose the cars for a moment when the pack was in turn 4. I feel bad for you and your friend. His first impression is dirt track racing stinks.
I will go back next year but I bet it wont sell out again in 2018 because there has to be some people who just wont risk it again. They need to figure out what made it so much more dusty this year.
