PostSubject: Constructive Criticism   Wed Jun 03, 2009 8:36 pm

Hello: First, this message is from a loyal customer. My family and I have been going to the speedway for years, but I'm not sure if that will continue. So, with the best intentions, and before this message is deleted, please consider the following. And I run a business too, so I'm sure your job is not an easy one.

Week before last, I paid $15 to get in, only to see race after race of the dwarf kids cars. Not sure what the exact name of this class of cars is, but I did not pay to see kids race. If I go to the speedway, or a Dodger game, or even the local Blaze or Condors, I pay to see professionals, not children. Seems this kids program has expanded, and from now on, if I see it on the program, I will not attend.

Fine to give away a ride in a late model 2-seater, but I don't think everyone wants to watch (or pay) for that either.

Same goes for RC cars--I came to see actual race cars, not toys. Cool though they might be, if I wanted to see RC cars race, I'd go see them race, but not at the speedway.

Then the other years-old things: For the cooler months, is it too much to ask to get a coffee maker at the back concession??? $15 at WalMart! Scoreboard inaccurate or inoperative. Is there no way to get a proper restroom below turn 1?? The sound system is awful, and has been for years! Compare that (and the scoreboard) to what world of outlaws does when they come to town--an audio system you can actually hear, and a scoreboard that is legible and operational. Why the long down-time between races? This, together with kids cars and RC cars, means it's often a nail-biter to see if the race we all paid to see will be completed before the curfew. People in the stands say it's intentional, so you can sell more beer.

Finally, a few weeks ago I got fed up and went to Tulare Thunderbowl raceway. Yes, I know they get Fresno traffic which makes the revenuegeneration easier, but the track seems MUCH longer, even though it too is billed as 1/3 mile, seating is better, parking is cleaner (on grass), beer is cheaper, changeover between races is quicker, it's only a few more minutes up 99, and ticket prices are comparable!

You can do better!

well its dirt track racing it isnt nascar and honestly do u want to roll out a red carpet for you to walk into too? the bathrooms and concessions arent that far away if you are in turn one there is one right there anyway.actually the scorebard and sound system do work i can hear in the back of the pits with cars running around me and about the mini dwarfs racing how do u think we all get our starts at racing?and on the speedway site has a schedule and tells you what is goin on that saturday night. to be honest with you, you sound like your being a little picky about it,

There is a long down time between races because the operator of the scoreboard hasta leave the scoring tower, walk down to the pits, get in his hobby stock, and race.

And for some reason, no one ever wants to volunteer for the job.

i disagree with the the sound because when i raced i could hear the anouncing also with cars going around me also.. but i do agree with the mini dwarfs.. i have a scheduale and know when there racing and looking at it they do race waaayy to much for being just little kids.. i have nothing against them or any of tha but they need to have a a little bit fewer racecs and more spread out that way it dnt seem like its every single weekend.
