Lancaster is similar to last year. Run their own modifieds 5ish times, no roc.
Holland, heard two races, no details, not roc

I hate to say it but sadly asphalt racing is dying a slow death in New York State.The new kid on the block is Jody London and along with a few others may turn things around,i hope so.I have gone from attending from 35 -45 races per year to 7 races the last 3 years.The post from Leadfoot hit the nail right on the head.The ROC series has gone downhill since it was bought from Harpell.

Modified racing in WNY has been in dismay for the last few years.Outrageous tire prices,high sanction fees,less than full fields ,guys not getting paid till weeks and months later,inflated egos etc... Modified racing has shown growth and potential in the New England states(Tri Track Series) ,with full fields and larger purse structures. BIG changes coming soon locally, should be a great start to the new year...😀
No Im not interested in owning a track or promoting your series 😀

"The ROC series has gone downhill since it was bought from Harpell."

Care to explain just what you mean?  The racing is better at Oswego than LE?  I don't think so.

(makes no diff I crew on the 60 either Matt's has won plenty at both places.   If better means it's pain to

drive to Erie vs Oswego you got me there but NFW is the racing at worn old Oswego better.   :P

Citing increased costs to present the Modifieds at Thompson Speedway, the owners have proposed a limited schedule and approximate 75% reduction in purses in 2020.  Not a typo.  Approximate 75% reduction from previous year, 2019.

While this may not be the final plan, it has caused a great deal of angst amongst the drivers and race fans.

Here is the link, read it for yourself:  https://racedayct.com/2019/12/competitors-react-to-news-of-thompson-speedway-changes-for-2020-season/

It appears the business model for presenting "full blown" asphalt Modifieds on the short tracks is in a dark hour for car owners, drivers, fans and track owners.

RoC will be racing next year no matter how much some of you haters talk. It's like some of you keep repeating yourself in hope of what you say come true.
 As far as holland running a full schedule I can squash that rumor. Although it would be nice to see  a full schedule let's hope for more than 2 ROC mod races there this year which I think will come true.
 Also some of you need to stop living in the past at oswego. You can't match the excitement Lake Erie  puts out in all the divisions on ROC weekend.

Thompson (management) is playing some kind of a game. (IMO). Only a fool would race there under the -75% purse cut and go for 4 Weds nights
and the two big Spring and Fall shows.  That track closing would do what to the almighty Tour?  Waterford isn't open and that leaves SMS as the epicenter of Modified racing?  Next time somebody sh its on the TT or the ROC or MRS or any other non NA$CAR  race I'll gladly give them directions to Thompson.  It's not 1970..or 80 or even 90 anymore kids so support what you have in your own backyard. Unless pi ssing in the wind is more fun. :-\

GSIII is 100 percent correct ROC will race this year in the racing at Oswego sucks great location cool trackk with a lot of history but that's as far as it goes.  Lake Erie 10 times better for the racer and the fan
