Rp22, have you reached out to the track on this, or are you just posting about it here?   Curious.

Glad to see our Buffalo fans are getting MAV...now the Finger Lakes (Rochester) needs to get it on, I'll pay for it as part of a tier if I need to, what's an extra few bucks a month for quality racing coverage?

Racing Discussion / Re: Shangrila-2 is holding a meeting
« on: March 12, 2018, 12:05:51 PM »
I attended the meeting.

The meeting room was full, all seats were taken and I stood with several other to listen.

The meeting was very well conducted.  George was very clear about his plans for the track, he allowed and fielded questions very well.  He also listened and asked for comments and suggestions.

All of the participants were very respectful and conducted themselves professionally.

Ron Hills was there to video the complete meeting.

Rather than trying to take something out of context and comment here, I think it would be better to wait for an official press release or an announcement on the track website regarding plans to race this year and next year. 

My only comment is that it was a very positive meeting and there was a sense among those that I spoke with after the meeting, that this great facility would have racing again.

Getting some official info out is going to be critical, sooner rather than later.   It would be a smart idea to schedule a press conference somewhere in the area and live stream it for the public...does SL2 even have a social media presence/footprint outside of their web site?

As long as we have belly-aching about 'blocking', we'll have sub-par product...I have frequently said that the 'newer' generation of racers lack the respect for each other (as well as the understanding that it's a PRIVILEGE, not a 'right' or 'entitlement' to compete on the biggest stages in our sport) that would bring us more give and less take.

We've also become hyper-critical, as everybody's an Internet jockey after the race.  Chances are we could have had an amazing race, with wild wrecks (that hurt nobody), 3 wide racing, and an epic photo finish...and somebody would find something wrong with it...it's how we are now.  Sad.

Not the worst 500 I've seen by a long shot...not the greatest either.  It just WAS.

Geez, if these cars were so hard to drive with the rear ends slammed down at Daytona, how are they going to be on the worn-out pavement at Atlanta?

BTW, I WILL NITPICK THIS:  Nice slap in the face to Brendan Gaughan (sp) and Justin Marks NOT being shown in the starting lineup package w/ Charlize Theron (who was plainly reading from a teleprompter or memorized a script).  You mean to tell me that in the 10 or so days of Speedweek you couldn't get these guys into the package?  Shameful...as was Charlize talking about the 'top ten' before ROW 10 was revealed...that's a gaffe that should have been caught in post production editing; it made her and FOX sound ***** as heck and was easily avoidable.

To those who are pouring the economy sized hate on Austin Dillon...if you were in his shoes, how can you say, having nanoseconds to react, that you would have behaved differently behind the wheel?  Maybe we should be talking about the class Almirola showed in his post race interview, or the genuine emotion and comments from Bubba Wallace?  Funny how nobody's talking about Hamlin driving Wallace to the wall at the finish (heard something about Hamlin getting a RF flat, was that before or after he turned into Wallace?)...but again, same logic applies to that as does to Dillon as I stated above.

All this griping about crappy coverage, crappy moves, crappy racing...some of it is valid, yes, but for the most part, we look about as obnoxious as Internet pro wrestling fans.


There's always one in every group.  Complaining just to complain about somebody complaining. 

I like to think that instead of idly complaining, I at least provide some support to my arguments.  Until NASCAR fixes the primary problem of a sub-par product, this is what you're going to get/see...so, is anybody really excited to see the Atlanta race?

Updated info from ownership (from RWR FB page):

***FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE***
-Elbridge, New York
Rolling Wheels Raceway will be hosting the Second Annual Summer Broiler on July 13th, Gates Open at 3pm and Racing Starts at 7pm. In an effort to save the fans money and see a great high paying show, and in an effort to help the drivers, a very special promotion will be held for this event.

Admission for the Summer Broiler is $30.00 for adults, kids 13-17 will be $15.00 and kids 12 and under are free. Every Fan who attends the event with a paid admission will receive a $15.00 rebate chip (similar to a casino chip) when they pay for their tickets, regardless of the type of admission. If and When the attendance hits 4,000 people for this race, your chip will be redeemable for either a cash rebate or you may use the chip for concession stand purchases. An updated attendance board will be at the admission gate and will update attendance after every ticket sold. When and if the attendance hits 4,000 people, the chips will become fully redeemable. You may also use your chip to upgrade your General Admission to Pit Admission. ***THIS CHIP WILL BE GIVEN FOR EVERY PIT PASS THAT EVERY DRIVING TEAM PURCHASES***

For the Drivers, if and when we have 60 total sportsman and 60 total Big Blocks registered for the event, you will receive a $10.00 rebate chip which will become fully redeemable for cash or concession purchases when the car registrations hit 60 for each class. This is a special promotion to help the track make the event a financial success and to help the fans see a great event for very cheap pricing. It is our goal at the Wheels to pack the place with cars and fans and to duplicate the spectacular event that the American Flat Track just put on yesterday. Please pass this special offer on and let's see if all can become winners with this promotion from the Wheels!!! ALSO.......WE HAVE CHANGED THE PURSES FOR THIS EVENT......THE BIG BLOCKS ARE RUNNING FOR 7.5K WIN AND 500 TO START......HOOSIER TIRE ONLY.......SPORTSMAN ARE RUNNING FOR 2K/WIN......200 TO START FOR AMERICAN AND HOOSIER TIRES.
