Unfortunately Patrick won’t be able to race at Desoto because NSS scheduled their Sportsman races on top of every remaining Desoto Sportsman race. I’ve tried but neither side is willing to budge on this. Patrick loses out on going to Desoto and Aaron Williamson and myself miss out on racing in the 50 lappers at NSS. And more importantly, the fans miss out on seeing the two top Sportsman drivers in the state battle it out at the two best Sportsman tracks. Such is Florida racing, I guess…
Boy, am I an ass. I was just informed that NSS is planning on rescheduling the conflicting 50 lappers! NSS here I come! Also get ready for Aaron Williamson to come challenge Patrick! I’m thinking he’s got something for Patrick! Thank you NSS!
From what I understand it gets rolled over every race it’s not “claimed”. So it will be $400 next race. If Patrick can manage to sweep the next 4 races the bounty will baloon to a whopping $1200 by the next 50 lapper making it worth $2200 to win!!! Now THAT would draw an epic field!
[QUOTE=Don Nerone;162052]Looks like the car count is improving at NSS. Good job now stick with it and more will show. Don’t try to fix anything its not broken… Good luck. Yes I will tell you when I think u did good
Sportsman fields were over 20. But the pay drop off is prob taking a toll. Scott, wasn’t it only like $50 to start at a certain point?
The pay is what it is at NSS. True they are down a few cars from last Sportsman race but it ebbs and flows. From 23 (on June 13th) for a high to 14 to a low they are still averaging around 20. With the affordability of the tire and its lifespan, drivers are obviously willing to forgo pay for the thrill of racing in a big field on the big high banks.
that’s good Scott that’s the kind of race I want to see everybody running the same motors etc. now it will be all driver and setup to battle it out for the win . as far as pay out goes the tracks should pay the most payout to the class that is bring in car counts . and right now the sportsman class is it that car count has been the best since they started this year.
That’s an incorrect statement. Not every track needs to run them on the same night, and some drivers such as Scott would be glad to patronize both tracks if that were possible. And as Scott said, the fans miss out. Say Scotty, you figured out how to be in 2 place at once yet? Sorry Benny, but you’re just wrong.
[QUOTE=Benny The Mule;162068]how am i wrong? who runs them on Friday? Ohhh wait…you want that “tracks working together” dream. having an individual track owner NOT run a class so you have control. Sorry dude. YOU are wrong.
I agree that Scott is quite the advocate for his class and i commend him for that.[/QUOTE]
Where did friday enter into this? Yes, every track that runs Sportsmans runs them on Saturday. It’s no newsflash that every asphalt track in the state runs only on Saturday for a regular show.Yet not every track runs them every Saturday.In fact, no track runs them every Saturday.
