Let's keep our sleeves rolled up and our chin held high. I had a great time coming up and helping out. Keeping positive is key. :-)

I just want to thank you for a great weekend at the rock, I cant believe some of these jerks that do not under stand what it takes to put on a event with the ama. we had a problem Friday night at motel 7 and had to go back to Portland to be able to get some sleep, drunks are hard to deal with sometimes, but aside from that we had a great time, to bad it had to rain out Friday night, that was going to be a great night of racing, double header next year would be a good thing, the twins was going to be a great show on the oval, as for other comments I have read some of these people should put up some help and or just shout up, it takes money to put on these races, lots of money. advertising is expensive and some help from the ama would really help, bobby jr could also help by adding advertising on to their motorcycle adds that they already run. I ran adds on craigs list for the street tracker and vintage bikes and I got about 150 people that showed up just from that add, they did not know of the race at all and they all bought tickets and stayed for the races.ray knight is a great guy and it was a lot of fun hanging out this past weekend, . you can bet we will be back next year and most likely also for some of your other events.

I want to applaud the MSHMC for their professionalism last night in the face of a disaster! Denise and her crew refunded the riders, people with pit passes and fans in full. They did so very promptly and I cannot commend them enough. I have been there and it can be very stressful. These guys handled it very well. It is known that some promoters will not refund any money once a motorcycle has taken the track at an event. If you ride practice, you don't get your money back. That is a HUGE expense for the riders and participants last night. I am sorry that it rained out, but today looks beautiful! Thank you again Denise and Crew and the MSHMC!!! Kudos to you.

I should also have mentioned that I have sent messages to the "acting" club president which never received a response. Probably because he is only a figure head leader. He is more interested in promoting his son's career than furthering the club's purpose of promoting and furthering the sport of flat tracking while people behind the scenes are the ones really calling the shots. So there. The "Club" has now lost more fans and will continue to do so. You just did today, not just me but some of my friends, too. Don't care MSHMC? Prove me wrong.

Well then, the preceding comments pretty much sum up my feelings about MSHMC. The club has become very unfriendly towards spectators and long time fans. This is the 2nd time this year I showed up exepecting to pay a set price for a pit pass, to find out upon arrival it is now $5 more. The excuse was "they just raised it this morning". What a bunch of BS. I will never attend another race at this facility until a PROFESSIONAL management team takes over operations of said facility . They are now returning to another attempt at selling off the race track for the personal financial gain of a few undeserving individuals. I have seen it coming for years. So now I will publicly call out one of your track workers, Craig Hollis for telling another unknown track worker to "run him down" as I was walking through the pit gate at a recent event. I thought that to be very rude and unjustified Yes, I have witnesses. So, will the club banish my remarks? They have before. So, now the club comes up with all these excuses of how difficult it is and how expensive it is to put on one these GNC races. If you can't afford it, don't bother. Don't lead people on. The recent and short coming pseudo attempt to pull off a great event, will fail for a number of reasons which is exactly what the current regime wants. Flattrack in the NW has 1 foot in the grave because of a few greedy people. Good luck to all the riders and the fans who have the perstence to hang in there. My best wishes will always be to the riders who are my heroes. If I had the resources. I would build you all a new track professionally managed for your's and spectator pleasure and enjoyment. Wish I could do that. Bye.
