    Gateway lost NASCAR now this.

    Earlier this year Dover Motorsports informed NASCAR they did not want a race at their Gateway track. NHRA released their schedule and we are not on it. Looks like I'm out of a job at the end of the season.

    Looks like Joliet made it another year, rumors were all over the place about tearing it down to make a motel! That sucks about St Louis, I went to the first NHRA race they held there, I think it was in 1996. I have had some damn good times down there, what a shame... :cry:

    The story in the paper today said if dover decides to run a weekly program, NHRA might have a national event there in 2012.

    Not sure but i think dover was who bought Memphis, but who ever it was ran the track into the ground in 2 yrs., poor management. Can you imagine only 7 cars showing up for S/P, that's what happened at Memphis, now it's a railroad switching yard.

    Regardless of the other, I hope you aren't out of a job. That's the part I hate to hear the most.
