Who is not going to Orlando this year either because in the past few years it has been a mess or because of Bradenton the week before???

The Street Nationals will be bigger and better than ever!! Orlando WILL have more drag radial entrants than Bradenton, you can take that to the bank!! Bradenton tried to compete with this race with their US Nationals and we all know what a joke of an event that has become:)

Nobody is going to Orlando. Don't you remember all the "ban Orlando" threads from last year. Everyone here is done with Orlando and will never go again. I'm too fat and lazy to find the threads, but they are here.

Personally, we are glad no one will be coming this year. It will actually give us a shot in drag radial.

I dont know about the US Street Nats being a joke of an event. We have been there the last 3 years and as far as business goes it has been great. In order for business for us to be great there has to be racers and the pits have been full. The track has been great and you cant ask for anybody better to deal with than Dave.jmo. We will be there again this year as well as Orlando.

I'm one of the people that said they will not be back at Orlando and I can guarantee that. It's the Shakedown and Vegas for our car and I would love to bet anyone that the quickest and fastest passes for Pro Street, Outlaw 10.5 and Radial will be at the Shakedown and more than likely Orlando will be 3rd behind Shakedown, Vegas and Bradenton when it comes to performance. When you compare the tracks and facilites the choice is clear where to race and it's not ORLANDO.

The Shakedown is going to become the "NEW" Orlando! You will alway have people going to Orlando because it was the first big race, but it's time has come and gone.

Carl told me personally that he's never banned anyone from his facility unless they acted violent to his staff or made threats. I'll be there mainly because I have customers who will be competing there and because it's in my backyard basically but I do believe this race has lost some of it's luster.

I don't know if this will have any bearing on people's decision, but I'm going to Orlando the 2nd week of September to prep their track with our LC6. We're going to do a side by side with their current compound. I've had great success with our product in Florida. Sunshine and Bradenton both use our LC6 now. If all goes well I hope to prep the track for the World Street Nats. I can promise you if this happens, the track prep will be the best I can make it. I know this has nothing to do with issues you've had with payouts and such, but I belive this race is for the fans. If you're going to pay 75.00 bucks a head to watch, I think the prep is very important.

i might go there to watch but who knows o.r.c os the week before an well there will be way more radial cars there then orlando..

just go look at the o.r.c list and around an you can see alot of the big players are running o.r.c and then loading up an going home..

i'm sure some of the local guys who said they wont be there will show up trying to rope a dope other into thinking they have a shot and trying to rope a dope the other faster cars about not going because of the b.s and stuff an going..

I've been to everyone of the WSN events in Orlando up until this year, I have a prior racing commitment with the OSBA at VMP that I will be at. If it wasn't for that I'd go to see some friends, make a few passes, and break out the grill!
