I'll know more on Tuesday, but for now, it looks like there won't be
one. If we had sold more tickets, it wouldn't have been a problem,
but the club had to renegotiate with the track on some
points...meanwhile, some big biker group apparently came out of
nowhere and offered up some $$$ for their own corral...and the track
basically said "sorry, can't do it for you."
Unfortunately, it was just a tough sell...big holiday weekend, and
$75-100 for tickets; it's a terrific value considering how big an
event it is, and how much other large racing venues cost(and this is
a full hospitality deal!)...but I think a lot of people still simply
had sticker shock when they saw the ticket price...dunno.
Doesn't help that area hotels started pulling BS like requiring 5-day
bookings, in one case. I'm going to be attending Saturday and then
Monday only(there is a car show Sunday), and driving down both days
from home, as a result. Sucks, but what else can you do?
