How is this going to help Speedworld?

I have questions about the new “every other week” schedule at Speedworld. Maybe they will sound like complaints, and maybe they are. The fact is, I don’t see how this new schedule will help.

The most successful class of 2012 has been the E-mods, yet they are off for the first 4 shows, and don’t run again until late July. They have had good car counts and interesting racing, is this an oversight?

Has there been any change on the approach to attracting cars? From my point of view, there has been complete silence from FASCAR regarding any reason to get the cars out of the garage. A track that is unhealthy, and is running on a limited schedule, will not inspire racers to spend money and invest time on their equipment if they think there will be no place to race. If the purpose of this shut-down and revised schedule is to frighten the racers into participating, I don’t think it will work. They have to be reassured that the future is positive, and be encouraged to help in the rebuilding process.

Of course that assumes that there is a rebuilding process. Has there been any change in the promotion of the track?

What happens to the fans or competitors who show up on a Friday night when we are closed? Instead of a track that has been opened for many years, they will find it dark and empty. It will take some effort to get those people back. I suggest having someone out there to explain (fun job, I know), or at least have a professional sign that shows next weeks schedule.

Legends and Bandos usually don’t have enough cars to race. If we are lucky, we have 3 and they can run a short race, but many nights they have 1 or 2. Still, they are scheduled for every race night until the end of the year. Why? That just decieves the fans who are expecting a show with six or seven classes, but who may see one or two classes dropped for lack of participation.

I am a positive guy by nature, but unless anyone can explain how this helps, I don’t see our track being stronger or healthier.

Boneman this is not going to help anything all this has done is caused a couple of racer to put there cars up for sale . Funny thing usually mark post when the schedule is changed. I didn’t see anything posted about this change. myself I am tired of it. I supportedd the track even if i didnt take a car out .now I plan on traveling north with my mod and pro late to race.

The lack of ANY kind of communication with the fans and racers at OSW, has been a huge disappointment. Mark gets a lot of heat for this, but realize he is the “voice of”, not the “decider of” these actions.

I can’t see any plan for the future, no promotion for this new program, no apologies… NOTHING.

It appears to me the same old style of running that track is in place… open the gates and turn on the lights. That’s it.

If it ain’t gonna be ANY different (except the same lousy show, half as often), why are they bothering at all…???

I don’t want to see it close, but had hopes that this period of “scheduling conflicts” was gonna be used to create a new plan, mend some fences, gather some excitement for upcoming events…

NONE of that happened.

i personally think they are trying to get nss car count back up
if you look at the car count osw has had more cars this year
iwish they would be honest with us and let us no what the real story is
before i spend any more money on our cars
concerned jeff :question:

oh yeah i forgot try some new classes like 4 cyl bombers
figure 8 lets run v 8 camaros mustangs etc have 50 lap enduro
races once a month pay a thousand to win you will get cars from
all over the state try something you keep doing the same every year
unless you want the track to close :frowning:

That’s what Terry “The Closer” Roberts is trying to do is get the cars to NSS, one of the “Elite Tracks”. Just another nail in the coffin of OSW unfortunately. Next will be “We don’t have any cars at Orlando, So we’ll just go ahead and close it for the remainder of the season”. That was there excuse for Lake City a year ago which is still closed. That is why I am having reservations about supporting this 50 lap big tire Modified race Saturday.
