We seem to stay steady at 25 cars or more.
There always seems to be new guys each year
to replace the guys who move up.

At Mid-America Motorspeedway, we don't have Streetstocks, They call them Outlaw Factory, we average about 20 a night. As mentioned above, we too have alot of classes, 6 total on a regular night and also Dwarfs and Mini-Sprints on 2 weekends a month. It makes along night, but there are some good races.

I also feel that some of the support classes like "STEET STOCK" have gone to far with the rules. Insofar as the classes car count dropping, yes its so but with seven or eight classes running,there is a higher car count in the pits than before.It also seems that the stand fan count is also off, another reason for so many classes. It appears to me(for what its worth), that a better form of promotion,fewer classes,and a quicker program would increase not only stand fan count but also pit car count. For the average "Street Stock", or "Pure Stock" racer who is the guy that works 60 hours a week, tries to pay rent and raise 2 kids and have a race car, mabey look at calming the rules down.

I don't mean for this to sound like a debate but I quit racing because in our area a "Street Stock" engine has gotten out of hand dollar wise. When you have to spend 5 to 6 thousand on a stock rod flat top motor to stay competitive its out of hand.

Mabey just Mabey we the racers are at fault for a dropping car count because we have allowed the rules to get out of hand. We may blame the promoter,the flagman,the tech man the water truck or whoever, but just look in the mirror, IT"S US.

Good luck racing where ever you are, and think about the rules this winter.

Last night 7/21 was the lowest count per class all year, but the stands were better,go figure. Mabey 14 days of 104 temps have something to do with it.
