Stricter rules and more rule enforcement.

1) The track needs more bite later in the evening, specifically the clay needs to have some something worked into it to help it hold the moisture better.

2) Officials that are more technical and with backbones. Wishy-Washy on the rules from one week to the next. Interpret the rule and stand by it.

3) Improved purse for the feature division, and others too

4) Division rules that are same as other tracks in the area. So you can run on Fri, Sat and Sun.

5) Add some more banking to the 1/2 mile.

I would really like to see my little hometown track get out and promote the track so us drivers can make more money,I don't get to race every weekend ,but it seems that most of the tracks in my area cannot draw a crowd witch in turn means no money.The track owner ,myself and another racer were talking about the money because he asked,when we voiced our opinion he flat told us to go race some where else.So I would really like to see my track grow,and start paying off.

I think the biggest problem with a track/tracks is the way they can & do play favorites! I'm not a big budget modified but I do have a lot of time, money, and pride in my car, does this I mean that the guy that has the best looking car or has the biggest hauler should get a better break than me ? What about trying to run at a new track and you are up against the "good-old-boys" ? I just think that we are in America , Land of the Free, Everything that happens at the track usually happens because somebody has a problem with someone or something, that someone did. I guess I'm asking for some equality and by that I mean if a guy takes you out, he goes back, behind you. If you get claimed, either cry at home for 2 weeks with your motor or get a new one next week, but officials stick to the rules and go by them no more "grey areas". Also I know this would be hard but the officials are not to play favorites, I think that this would be a revolution but it would be nice. any ways just my nickels worth! good racin

Well what I would like to see is a smoother track that hold water better because it gets very dry by the time I get out for my A feature.

Needs to be a Law passed that says you cant sell Hot Dogs after 10 o clock maybe they would worry about getting the races over instead. Promoters seem to think every one wants to make each race a life experience instead of a weekly event. Get rid of the nickel and candy dashes,just hand each kid a bag of candy or some coupons for your concessions when they walk in and quite spending race time doing these stupid promotions. Also get real sick of hearing that its so and so 's night at the races when the racers dont get any thing extra in their purses and the fans pay the same to get in.

I think that they're is way too much favorism at every track because the year I won the track championship when I drew numbers they always gave me a bad number because she said I drove better when I started in the back.

All I want is for our local track to re-open. Hickory Speedway in New Castle, Pa. closed late last season due to some tragic events...the owners just wanted out of the whole deal. I love that track...please feel free to purchase it!!!

I would like to see my local track have an annoucer that would SHUT UP occasionally. Our annoucer drones on and on about everything. People at the track would like to talk among themselves about the last race or the race coming up etc... Hard to do with the annoucer blasting out the latest thought in his head.
Also would like to see the next class lined up and ready to go.
The same track has one of the hardest working front stretch guys I have ever seen. He uses a blackboard to get the driver lined up after wreck etc.. Much better than trying the hands signals. (Most drivers know their own number) If they don't get in line or want to argue, then the driver is black flagged.

My two cents plus two more.

I think they should enforce the rules they have,the same way for everyone racing,if the rules say it isn't leagle'then it ain't leagle for nobody even if he is related to the promoter/track owner or is one of their friends!!!

just set the rules. don't change them every year and then enforce the @##$$%%%% rules. nothing makes a racer as mad as showing up with a legal car just to see illegal ones that the track owner lets race anyway.
