Anyone have a quick list of this weeks satellite shows?  I didn't know Utica Rome had a Tuesday night show.

I recommend, if you're coming, get here early. Parking is at a premium. The racing has made up for it, though.

That race just sealed the deal.  Expect Oswego to hold SDW for years to come.

They better make better plans for camping and parking, then.

There is a waiting list for camping and people are not taking advantage of the shuttles from blacktop parking lots.  There is not another facility even close to Oswego's capacity and acreage that would be able to accommodate the amount of people.  Not one track is able to control the weather either.

To bad Shangri-La II didn't have the seating capacity like Oswego does. With all the acreage up on that hill with free camping and parking and a short walk to the track. And boy would those car fly around that track!!!

The waiting list got used. People used the shuttle. And, no, no track can control the weather.

But you can't have employees who give zero f----s directing people to park in the camping area. Or simply pointing at the track and saying parking is "there".

That being said... They started pulling campers out of the Green Lot Thursday night. They didn't come back. Where did they put them? If you offer showers on site, why are there only two? Was the restroom for women under the grandstands open at all during the week? Why was the infield concession not open? Where was handicapped cart parking or access?

Don't get me wrong - I had a blast. Already waiting to hear what the dates are for next year. And I have every confidence that they will have more bugs worked out.

If it were me, I would turn that general parking grass lot out front of the speedway into more camping, and park cars in lots on 104 and shuttle in from there. Put a ticket booth down there on Sunday. Or add more hotels. :shrug:

i agree racing was great well worth the 45 bucks but parking was terrible we took the shuttle to the track but gave up waiting after an hour for the return and just walked the 2 miles back to the car very few vendors selling anything and the ones there could care less no track concessions four dollars for a bottle of water from vendor my advice would be to keep the dirt down and run select shows through the year nobody wants to watch 15 supers run around with 5 not even competitive

I also heard some complaints about the parking "greeters".  Were these SDW employees or Oswego Speedway workers?  I didn't recognize any of them and I'm at Oswego quite often.  I WILL say that the gals in the ticket booth were downright wonderful.

Not sure who the "camping assistants" were.

The girls in Gate 6 were excellent.

When you get told by Tom Deery you are not parking in a parking area, so you move, and end up parking outside the effing gate and the shuttles don't run that day..... Yeah, I was not pleased.

Dino's on the backstretch had water for $1. I only saw two food vendors - Kosta's and Dino's. The track concession on the infield was never opened.

I did, however, appreciate the clean restroom facilities, after dealing with absolutely horrendous porta john's all weekend. It is not the sanitation company that is the problem, although two trips daily may have helped. People have a callous disregard for other people's property.

Did you guys hear someone had b@lls enough to walk into Alan Johnson's trailer, open his merchandise cart, and steal the money bag? $2,000 in sales cash gone.
