Some day I will see the Outlaws race at Eldora. We sent to far from there in the summer. It's the ultimate racing. Not this summer but soon.

Try the Knoxville Nationals 10-13August16. It is amazing to see an entire town get behind the races like the folks of Knoxville. 4 days of racing. 13-14sec laps on a flat 1/2 mile dirt track.

Less than 500 miles for you.

That would be great. I'll have to check that one out. It will have to be next year. This summer is full. I'm getting both knees replaced this summer. One at a time so it will be a full summer.

Good luck with the knees, hope recovery is fast and painless.

Going to both but need several tickets in a group. I always "negotiate" with the scalpers outside the track and have always gotten really good deals.

They used to run Outlaws on the ⅜ mile banked pavement track at Senoia, GA. Loved watching them lift the inside front wheel as they accelerated out of the turns.

We are going to the night race.... well let me correct that DH is going to the night race while I stay at the campground with DD and the dog. DD is pretty sensitive to loud noise so we are staying at the KOA where there us a lot of good kid activities and a shuttle to the race for DH. This was DH's Christmas present this year. Don't need any tickets.

The WoO used to race at the Syracuse 1 mile dirt track every year during Super Dirt Week. Watched NJ's Billy Pauch set a 1 mile record of 145. Best race I ever saw in my life Steve Kinser and Jac Haudenshield pulled out from the pack and were inches apart going into the first turn lap after lap. After the race (Kinser won) on the podium Steve and Jac were given a prolonged standing ovation. Ironically, the track has recently been torn down, in part to put in a RV park.

[QUOTE=RKNOLA;1127367]We went the first year of the race: $1400.00 for tickets, $17.00 for a hamburger (just the burger! Fries were $8.00 extra) $6.00 for a bottle water...... it was pathetic! QUOTE]

That's RIDUCLOUS Karen!

This is why I refuse to go to almost any organized sporting event anymore. If it is something I am interested in, like Emm Dee, I will go to the event and "discuss" options with the scalpers just before the event starts

Gotta agree here Phil! When we go, it's shooting plugs, & ClearArmor Shooter's earmuffs. Perfectly acceptable for Talladega, almost not enough for Bristol!
