Why is it nobody is showing up?With these dismal car counts how can we expect the track to continue the program? :-damnit
Seems like the friday night show is as strong as ever,..guaranteed payouts bring the cars. IMO
Nick to be fair I don't think many local 10.5 racers knew they could run there cars at that race, most are tube chassis. Plus on Friday night Milan pays $1500 I'm sure for $5000 several more would of showed if they knew they could run.I agree Butch....the Friday night deal seems to be pretty good....on the money comment i dont think its true for the 10.5 cars as we paid 5k plus a set of tires for the june 21st sat. race and low et for a total of just under $6,000 cash to win and only 2 local cars showed up....i know its a different class but i hoped the payout would make the difference....good luck with the series guys and props to all the teams that are supporting it.....
not to start anything...but to be fair i posted rules and asked if anyone had questions about rules to contact me...didn't get one inquiry....i must have not done a good enough job then??....shame...7 cars and we still payed out the 5k....we have had 2 more races since then with same payout in our series and still no interest so it is what it is...one race left sept. 27th....same payout and a set tires....we allow most chassis cars in with a weight adder as you know our rules...they are a bit different than Cecil's to help with car count and get through the chassis car issues...i know they all don't fit but guessing 75-80% do....Since it really didn't make a difference to car count this year we will really have to look at our rule set for next season....thanks to those teams that did support our series.Nick to be fair I don't think many local 10.5 racers knew they could run there cars at that race, most are tube chassis.

Agreed on the $400 Jim its a bit steep but did get you car and 4 crew into the race....plus I guaranteed the 5k and a few cars wouldn't cover the payouts....not to make this too lengthy i was just trying to say that the bigger payout doesn't always bring the cars out...I was doing my best to bring 1/8 mile 10.5 racing to Milan and it just didnt work out...no harm.. no foul...it is what it is...The $400 entry fee was pretty steep. Not that I had anything worth bringing to the party but the Friday race is only $75 to enter.
lol....love to but we didn't want to disrupt the friday night 10.5 race as ours doesnt count towards their series and was hoping a few friday night 10.5 cars would join our race with the big payout??...i like the moon shine sleep in deal though!!!!!!There's no disputing that the Friday night thing at Milan just plain works. Maybe have the race there next year on a Friday as a part of the normal Milan Friday series? That way you (we) can sleep in Saturday after drinking all of those shots of moonshine.
