It is time for the short track racing community to have a serious and thoughtful discussion about what we are doing and what we need to do to improve our racing. That is my goal. Please understand that I am a rookie at writing. I am going to say some things that some people won t like, but I am not trying to offend anyone. My purpose is to stimulate a discussion. The more ideas put forth,the better the odds that we, as a group, can identify what needs to be done. At present there are a number of conversations going on about this subject and that is a good start, however these discussions tend to be isolated in that fans talk about what fans want, racers talk about what racers want, etc. I think what is needed is fans, racers, and promoters all included in the same discussion. We are all in this together, we all want better racing, and we all know that the current situation is not working.

I am sure the first question you will have is why does this guy think he is qualified to say these things? Good question. Over the last 50 years I have been a driver, owner, owner/driver, crew member, and spectator. I have also been involved on the promotion side of racing. I have built racing engines, racing parts, and complete race cars and motorcycles. I have been in drag racing, off road racing, short track racing, and motocross. You can put whatever value you want on that.

Short track racing in Southern California is what I want to discuss. My comments are aimed at dirt track racing, but some of this discussion applies to asphalt tracks as well. Currently short track racing has a shortage of race cars and a shortage of fans. There is no shortage of opinions about what caused this. Let s see if we can sort through all these ideas and opinions and come up with the fixes we need.

I have set this up as 2 pages. The first page is what I believe are some of the problems causing a decline in short track racing. This isn t all the problems and I plan on adding to this list. The items are numbered. The second page is a list of possible fixes for the problems (also numbered). You can comment on the problems and/or fixes in general or if you want to comment on a specific item you can reference that items number. Please keep it clean and on topic. This is important for the future of short track racing.
