“ IT DOES NOT MATTER IF THERE IS 3 CARS ON THE RACE TRACK OR 34… AS LONG AS COMPETITION IS WORKING TO BE FAIR…. PEOPLE COME TO WATCH CLOSE RACING….NOT SPEED OR DOMINATION” ….. WE WILL WORK ON IT ONE STEP AT A TIME… THE DAYS OF DIFFERENT RULES AT EVERY TRACK TO MAINTAIN CAR COUNTS IS GONE… THE ECONOMY AND DEMOGRAPHIC DOES NOT SUPPORT IT…..
