This is bound to upset folks but Afton and 5MP are not even half the facilities that Utica Rome, Brewerton, Weedsport and Fulton are. Not even close. I haven't been to Afton in many years but as for 5MP, Never had a good experience there as a driver or a fan. Place should of been bulldozed and turned into a housing developement 10 years ago.

I have always thought that Utica could handle an event the size of Dirt Week. Plenty of pit space, plenty of camping (if they got rid of the motocross track they just put in). Plenty of parking because they could use the lots at Vernon Downs. Close to Central New York, and already had a satellite show. It would need more grandstands, and putting them up off 3 and 4 may help with visibility issues as well.

Weedsport - the track itself is too small. The facility would be AMAZING for campers. I bet a lot of people didn;t know that the "back 40" across the railroad tracks has already been cleared and some water/electric sites are available out there.

Brewerton utilized CNYRP for parking. That's about all that site is good for right now.

Fulton - if you went to the Outlaw, you would see why Fulton would never work for Dirt Week. Some MAJOR improvements to the restrooms in the pit area would need to happen first.

Sunny, I was only speaking from the satellite shows perspective. I would never recommend those 4 tracks to hold dirt week. They are the best of the best when it comes to the satellite shows. From a facility standpoint.

I really like what they've done with Oswego. The whole concept of the cold pits being open to the fans, I believe is just fantastic. Less someone stealing 2K out of Alans trailer.

Andy, the "cold pit" area is awesome, until you're trying to work on your car.

Fans are what make this sport what it is, for sure, but sometimes it's hard to maneuver around them.

Unless you're the family who decided to take "Junior's" picture next to T-Mac's car.... Only to have the man himself photo bomb it. The look on the kid's face was worth the pit pass, lemme tell ya.

I mentioned those facilities because, at one point, I submitted a suggestion to Charlotte about an option for Super Dirt Week when it became evident that CNYRP was in the crapper and Oswego was iffy. I truly believe that, with minimal work, Utica would be a viable option.

I believe that Oswego is going to come into it's own. There are bugs, for sure, but nothing that didn't happen at the Mile. With continued success there, I see them putting in more developed camping areas (water and electric), more developed roadways, upgrading the restroom facilities, etc.
