    I guess I didn't miss much then. Things need to be sorted before next year.

    And they only finished the A classes for all the Pros. The B class Pro Comp and Pro Street never finished either. Pro Street B only got one round in all day.

    This is my opinion. Looked like they they took there sweet time with the "PRO'S" and rushed the sportsman racers. Sportsman has has to be there at 8:30, make one run and wait ALL day to make another then they want to hurry up. They finished up the "PRO'S" to completion and rushed the rest. 1st AND 2nd round buybacks sound greedy and not to smart to me. You don't really start racing till 3rd round. Adding B classes just adds more classes that you have to find time for. There could have been something said about the curfew and what would happen when it came. Instead they announce 15 min. left, 5 min. left and then 10:00 on the nose they shut the boards of and all of the pit lights so the people that have been there for 3 days have to load up in the dark. I can understand a curfew but not the way they went about it. Heard many good things about SGMP but that all went out the window. Been wanting to go to a big race since ProStar and this was a disappointment. I still had fun but to end a good weekend like that sux. SGMP and Man. Cup need to get there shit together. I don't think Ill be back knowing you can spend plenty money and drive that far to not finish.


    Feel sorry for the grudge guys going this weekend. Better not wait till the last min. to get a race off because they shut the lights off on ya.

    And yes, I'm still a lil pissed.

    They should of split the money sat night with all the et guys instead of letting them run the last few rounds sun morn.

    I heard the curfew was strict because they have had fines &now they are threatning the tracks permits

    I disagree with not finishing Saturday's race.... At least at the time. I was trying to gain some valuable points and wanted to finish it out.... And it helped me out. After Saturday, it should have been clear that 2nd round buybacks needed to be cancelled, which would have provided plenty of time to finish all the racing.

    Not sure if its true or not, but a track worker said the last big race went over an hour and it was $4000 in fines. Plus the track fee. Its funny because a train goes by ( seems like every 10-15 minutes ) blowing the horn the whole way. Ive got an idea.....DON'T BUILD A HOUSE NEXT TO A TRACK THEN COMPLAIN ABOUT THE NOISE YOU DUMB *SSES.
