Last year at the nationals N.E. dragway left out one set of stands to sell spots on the fence and give them half of the end stand.So fans and racers had no place to see the race on pit side.This was nothing but pure greed from n.e. dragway. also those vip stands were only a third full. they also gave out vip parking,and people parked where ever they wanted including blocking racers pit spots.I was ashamed to call n.e.dragway my home track.

OK, so maybe this puts some Street Outlaws type fans in the stands for Friday qualifying passes. Maybe they like what they see and come back again. This is bad?

The hottest spectator ticket out here at Pacific Raceways is the Good Guys show. A car show, music, beer and nostalgia Funny Cars fill the stands.

As for the 603 Trucks, there is/was a Cars of the 253 out here that ran Street Outlaw style races and it fizzled.

Drag strips are closing down at an alarming rate because it just doesn't make financial sense to stay in business.
Maybe we all have to occasionally bite the bullet too help the proprietors any way we can.
What do you think?

Englishtown was not sold to a developer. The family is leasing the land to store cars.

Where do you guys think the money comes from to operate these facilities.

Tracks have trouble putting spectators in the stands for a points race, forget about a normal race day.

The racer wants to get paid,
utilities must be paid,
taxes must be paid,
maintenance and new equipment is costly,
the help must be paid on time.

Who is supposed to pay for all this?

IMO it's really amazing that we still have drag strips today!

to get people in the stands takes marketing.They gave up on that years age.The fan base is there,just look at the number of fans at the nationals. was almost sold out every year.But they don't market the divisionals or the open when they had it.Other tracks market the races and do very well.maple grove brought in Badder to up grade their track.They did ok before but wanted to improve.The money is there,just need to find way to bring fans to track .as for englishtown,thought it was developer.but same outcome.
