Agreed.Sad deal. If hundreds if not thousands of people can gather to protest, then I think it would be ok to open drag straps. Smh
Drove by the old Northstar yesterday, sad what has happened to it. Empty lot basically now. Yea they were struggling, but we supported best we could. Brings up traffic at the remaining tracks, good or bad.... First Kennendale, now Northstar. I liked Kennendale, up till about 10 PM or so!I feel like 1/3 to 1/2 of the dragstrips around the USA are probably done. I think the goverment considers them more as a real estate holding or part time businesses and won't get any relief. Then you have a huge portion of the blue collar folks out of work and they make up the majority of racers.
From what I understand, North Star, the closest decent track (Yello Belly is closer but I won'tgo there) to me is done. It was already troubled to begin with. Not enough revenue to make mtg payments and the land is valued really high meaning the next guy that buys it is going to have an extremely hard time making it work as a track.
It is sad. I think most folks are still in shock and unable to see how bad it is going to be over the few years.
Payso Productions, they had 1 event scheduled for 5/16, that was obviously cancelled, may have been called Chucky Davis Birthday Bash? You know, the brothas! Grudge racing with 200 people on the starting line!Drag Week is still on the schedule as far as I know, I've heard nothing about it being canceled or moved to another date.
Which event do you mean when you say Payso?
Oh that one. I don't know anything about that one but can ask.Payso Productions, they had 1 event scheduled for 5/16, that was obviously cancelled, may have been called Chucky Davis Birthday Bash? You know, the brothas! Grudge racing with 200 people on the starting line!
