Went as a fan in the stands.

Liked: $20 admission with a 30 lap Modified feature paying $4,000 to win. There were 31 modifieds on hand and needed a consi to determine qualifying. Only 24 starters. Talented field (Pauch Jr, Von Dohren, Howard, Strunk, Watt, Godown to name a few). Cozze, Laubach, and even Meme not competitive this night. Pauch Jr won and in vl commented about Godown's tactics. Just a little more than rubbins racin from Godown. Also liked Mr. Keith Gearhart singing national anthem. 

Dislike: Even with a 10 minute intermission and they kept the show moving along, not done until after 11. Sportsman yellow fest. 4 divisions (14 Roadrunners and 8 street stocks also part of the show). Not sure you need heats for these two divisions. Beautiful speakers installed just a couple years ago and where I sit you can barely hear them. Not one speaker aimed at that section. 

Overall: Good racing, heats competitive, modified feature alone was worth the price of admission. Go back...yes but will pick and choose the times.
