In the Saturday P/ET race one of the 7 at 11:00 did not want to split the purse, that's why the had to finish it in the morning.
I hope they reduce the buy backs to 1 or none, you can help make that happen by talking to the promoters and letting them know.
We don't have that many big races anymore, I'm not going to stop going because of a few hiccups, they will get it right. But not if we stop going to the races they put out there.
I was in pro street B class and I was initially upset because we only got one pass all day. But then I thought about it and realized.... I have no idea what its like to try and run a event with 805 entries by a 10pm curfew. And there has never been a turnout like this before, so this was a first time problem. Valdosta never had a curfew before, another first time problem. Let's all be real, if they accommodated one of the classes, one of the others would be pissed. In other words, there was no way to make EVERYBODY happy. But the fact of the matter is, we had 805 entries enter a all motorcycle drag race!! And that is NEVER a bad thing. Especially considering the state that our sport is in. I'm sure the manufacturers learned from it, and will make adjustments. I vote for no buy backs and no grudge. But its a learning experience. I'm excited about man cup and the turnouts we get and the future plans of it. So to all the people who are saying they will boycott it, because of the few mishaps, we won't miss you!!!
I just didnt like how the track handled it. No hint about what they would do if they got to the curfew. And to shut the lights of at 10:00 on the nose on the people that have been there since Friday didnt seem to cool to me. Hope it changes. Still had fun.

More like 560 entries... Which is certainly a huge race, just not 800+....
there will NEVER be a event with a true 800 bikes racing.... NEVER! Only way is IF midwest and Texas racers showed up with a few from the west coast as well...
Tracks now days go off money taking in...in other words TECH CARDS purchased
