We had 3,000 seats until Hurricane Katrina, still have 1/2 mile of fence. The track hasnt paid its way for 7 years now, and since Mardi Gras got rained out I,m sure it will loose money again this year.
It,s for sale, you can buy it, and then you can buy 3,000 new seats for about 120K so everyone can sit and watch.
The point is Insurance regulations state that the most dangerous area on the race track is the burnout box area, and absolutly no spectators to be allowed in this area. I have some ideas to keep it clear from here on out, and they will be implemented starting this weekend.
But you should be able to tell someone they need to move and they do it without having to stop a race 5 to 6 times.
