Title: Save the Speedway
Post by: azbobbybooshay10 on October 07, 2005, 08:53:29 AM
Hi guys, I'm a new member here. My name is Bobby, and I'm 19 years old from Phoenix, AZ. No, I'm not one of those "New Age" NASCAR fans. I'm actually quite old-school, believe it or not. My favorite track is Darlington, and I miss North Wilkesboro to death.

Thats why I'm showing you guys a website I found a little while ago dedicated to Wilkesboro. http://www.savethespeedway.com is a site dedicated to getting the owners to reopen the track/sell it, and get some form of racing back there. It would be a PERFECT track for USAR, ARCA, ASA, Busch, and Trucks.

I've browsed these forums for a while, and I know many of you love "tradition" in NASCAR, so I figured this site would be right up your alley.

Hi Bobby, and WELCOME!  Glad you decided to join us and I am looking forward to more input by you.

Thanks for the link.  I will have to check it out more thoroughly later.

I finally got a chance to check out that site, Bobby, but couldn't get the link to work.  I happened to find the link on laidbackracing.com.  You just got your "coms" and "nets' mixed up.  An easy mistake!  Here's the link:

I'm very interested in getting some other series to race at such a wonderful short track.  I was fortunate enough to attend the last three races there and they were great ones.

Also, have you seen the petition at laidbackracing.com to save Darlington?   Here's the link:

Again, great to have you on board, Bobby!  You've had some great posts already!

Title: More on North Wilkesboro

Here's an interesting article that Lou found today about the group trying to save North Wilkesboro:

Let's hope they are able to wrestle it away from Bahre and Smith!   :D   We're still trying to verify the statement about a Letter of Intent from USAR, but if they ran there, it would certainly be awesome!
