When I attended a number of Promoters Workshops, they preached to the tracks PR staff, that when creating a schedule, NEVER, AND I MEAN NEVER say that an event is a regular show. There is always something that you can add in print to make that event special. Before I went to work at Holland Speedway, I spent every sat. nite at Lancaster. IT WAS THE PLACE TO BE! I hope for the sake of former drivers, fans and staff from the glory days, the track can somewhat return to it's former self.

why do people think anything will ever change?

Hope, hope still remains.

Take Oswego for example. You never know when the right person might come along and pull a complete turn around. I kind of thought Tim Packman might have helped, but he obviously did not choose to stay. Who knows?

I like this kind of thinking.  Despite Adirondack's eventual failure as a functioning track, I remember the track owner's insistence in 2008 that all regular events be referred to as special "Summer Sizzler" events.  That year's schedule was constructed this way and it certainly caught my attention before I started working there.

I fully agree as Tim made quite the effort to return home only to leave after 1 yr. Front office cleanup is needed.

Until someone buys the facility outright nothing can or will change. The owner does not care if the place is a racetrack or dump, and why would someone leasing the property invest back into it knowing he will never get the return on investment since he is not the owner. Yes there needs to be a change in management but it will not make a dent in the problems until someone who cares purchases the facility outright and starts to invest in it.

I'm just speculating here, but I don't think Tim had the authority to make the kinds of changes that would really matter.

...and why would someone leasing the property invest back into it knowing he will never get the return on investment since he is not the owner.

The last time this was brought up, someone, I believe it was Casper60, used the example of Jeremy Corcoran at Canadaigua as a lease holder that invested his own money into a facility.  I believe Jim Mazur has done the same at Raceway 5.

Who in their right mind thinks there is a lease holder of a race track anywhere that has not invested some of his own money? Whether it's done to some fans satisfaction might be a topic for another discussion. Jeremy Corcoran and Jim Mazur are exceptional promoters who may only be out worked by each other. The proof is in the results.

I would assume it would be late models, consider that what the race has been the last two years. ;)
