    At Daytona International you had to pay them the cost of admittance and paid AFT the cost of a pit pass if you wanted access to that. Different ticket prices depending on viewing options just like anywhere else. Wonder how it’ll work at NHMS.

    The short track at Daytona looked awful. Hope the one at nhms will be bigger.

    Re: Short Track Bike Week

    Was poking around the NHMS website link you posted and found the LRRS schedule for the weekend. Not sure if anyone has noticed but, the Classic has been moved to Sunday and it appears the flat track event is going to be the main draw along with the endurance races on Saturday. Curious what the other racers think.

    Probably trying to keep people there all weekend. Didn't see the flat track on the schedule, though.

    I expect that they're anticipating a much more significant crown for flat track, and they're probably right. I also expect that American Flat Track is saying if they're going to bring their show to town, they need to be the main event. Pretty much the only people who come and watch the Classic anymore are racers and their families so they're going to be there all weekend anyway.

    AFT is renting the track from NHMS. A separate entity, so no discount for LRRS racers (or LRRS officials) One of the benefits of getting the races is that we got Harley Davidson with their demo rides back here from Laconia. There will be a shuttle from the infield to the flat track as NO pit bikes, dirt bikes, golf carts, scooters, Segways, hoverboards, etc. will not be allowed outside the tunnel due to increased traffic.

    Sumo is Friday, interesting. That may depress outside entries from outside LRRS.

    Outside organization running Sumo this year. All we're doing is building the track and renting it to them.

    Re: Short Track Bike Week

    SMEC is a good crew, raced with them before and like their program. So I retract my depressed turnout estimate. Now, I wonder if they'll be running practice/etc concurrent with LRRS instead of waiting for the evening?
