Y'know, that's the same sort of thing I've seen here in the northwest, no happy butts in the seats for the bracket racers. I'm sure that's the case for many other tracks as well and we may see this sort of thing recur.

We have suggested to the track managers different ways of re-building a fan base through promotion. Outside of the other racers, who else in your communities know who won, lost or broke trying last weekend?

We have discussed celebrity drags with local celebrities like sports stars, radio and TV broadcasters, community leaders. Match / grudge race sort of affair. Falls on deaf ears around here. Maybe grudge meets between tracks within a division. Plus, how about some way for the fans to get involved with their 'Local Hero's", the guy down the street with the 9 second Camaro or 12 second Mustang.

I think as racers it's in our own best interests to aide the tracks in pronotion, but if the tracks aren't going to take the lead or even listen and act upon suggestions, then what?

Anyway, that's my rant question, I guess. How do we affect change?
