We've been racing a weird schedule this year... were out a month with my hubby (the driver) in the hospital. So, we're just getting back into trying to run "full time" (2-3 nights a week).

After three late nights at Charleston, I promised myself that I wouldn't go back there until they had ran two weekends in a row with the show done by midnight. (How else do you teach a track to shape up other than by not supporting the track?)

But now, I'm looking for somewhere else to go on Saturday night... Red Hill apparently is not running yet. We have friends visiting who will be to the south of us so we'd really like to go south... But Fairbury seems to be the closest, although to the north... We don't have the right gear for Macon. Mt. Vernon is next closest to the south, but 130 miles (although I bet we could go there and still get home earlier than we would running Charleston).

I just want my "local" track to get their act together... PLEASE!

Sorry - I just needed to vent.

When all the talking in the world won't help... and all the bashing that goes on (see over this track... and now people are starting to not go there... How can we help this track?

The track really needs some good help - they just don't have enough people. One tow truck just isn't going to cut it.

Might try going across the line to Indiana. There are several tracks that aren't too far from Charleston. Just a suggestion, and ...............see ya at the track!!

We thought about that and ended up going to Mt Vernon this past week. It was a lot of fun and were at the pay window at 10:15. We got home from MTV (130 miles) at the same time some street stockers in our town got home from Charleston (40 miles)!
