seems true now, watched my first nitro race there along with alcohol, first time I met Kenny Bernstein he let me hold the air hose in the fuel container to mix it, have a pic somewhere.

It’s a shame but not shocking they have been steadily going down hill for a while. Second and third generations never have the same drive or business sense or love for it that the first gen does, add that to rising insurance costs, complaints from residents , law suits and whatever else you can think of. They will take the easy money of parking cars rather than racing them. R.I.P. e town

Bullshit, if you're not gonna run it then sell it to someone that will..

This is a nightmare, one of the nicest facilities in the country and it's done.

Glad I can say I did race at it while it was running.

Drag strip, with the nhra race had to be the biggest moneymaker they did..... getting some big door car races was possible, which would be huge with the small tire racing of today.

They're shutting down the most profitable part. Retarded.

How do you know? You're privy to their financial records every year? Likely, it was the least profitable. You don't just quit your biggest moneymaker. You quit the biggest money loser. Which appears to be drag racing.

Have you ever even ran a racetrack? Do you have any clue what it takes to turn a profit at a place like that? I'm guessing you don't.

You could always come to Atco and hang with the 8.50 index racers there.
