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.

Racing Discussion / CMP cancelled 4/22/17
« on: April 22, 2017, 12:33:55 PM »
While the 2+ inches of rain that fell Thursday night and Friday morning did not have a terrible effect on the track surface, the pit area and parking lots at the track are extremely soft and there's still standing water in places, making some areas unusable...that, combined with the cold temperatures forecast for tonight, are unfortunately combining to force CMP officials to cancel tonight's racing program for April 22nd. We will post any makeup dates for tonight's events if they can be rescheduled. We apologize, but there hasn't been enough time for the grounds to dry out properly. See you next week!

Tonights program has been cancelled due to rain and wet grounds.  The complete program, including the GRIT Series, will be run next Saturday

I would listen to the competitors, but not let them dictate ALL policy and operation...the ideal short track marries a combination of competitor respect/input with a proper aspect of a quality show for the fans, whose opinions matter as well.
Simple rules can be enforced simply.
If the bathrooms aren't as clean and spiffy as my own, they're not clean and spiffy enough.
Simple concessions...do the easy stuff, do it WELL, serve it quickly with a smile, and make it affordable enough for people to WANT to come to the races to eat.
FRIENDLY STAFF EVERYWHERE...that doesn't mean 'pushover' people, it means treat people respectfully, but handle situations swiftly and accurately.
Consistency in race officiating/calls.
ADVERTISE ADVERTISE ADVERTISE.
Build the heroes and the villians...the battle of 'good vs. evil' ALWAYS sells tickets.
Track merch that screams BUY ME at a price that screams BUY ME...see 'advertising' above.
Unique theme nights and promotions.
Group ticket sales/hospitality programs for local businesses/chambers of commerce.
Finally...
If I owned a racetrack, I'd hire someone like me to run it and give them the tools needed to make it thrive and be successful and NOT MICROMANAGE.
