  • How many tracks have you attended to watch a race?

    All of these threads about attendance and what not, since I am now somewhat of an old-timer, I began to think about how fanactical about racing that I had been in my life.
    Some folks believe that I am half crazy because of that. Thank God that I have toned down.

    I started thinking back of the number of tracks that I have driven to watch a race over the years. I came up with 56 different tracks or temp street courses. That scares me about myself!

    Look back and try it and post it, you may surprise yourself.

    Lavonia (Georgia) speedway three weeks ago was track #111 for me.

    Something like 17 different states and Quebec.

                Been to Mahoning a couple times. Last time I was there was January 2, 1988. They wanted to host the first race of the year I guess

                Frigid cold and the track actually had ice on the surface in some sections.

                They ran anyhow since it was an Enduro

                  14 tracks, 6 states...but numerous times on most. I guess I'm a newbie.
                  So long, and thanks for all the fish!

                    I'm in the mid 50's at 13 states. I keep a spread sheet on my home PC of when, the track details and what ran.
