    Not so good news is that the Sept 15 IRL race at TMS is the same date as the Cowboys home opener. Bummer!

      Eddie dos not seem concerned about going heads up with the Cowboys.

      From the Dallas Morning News
      Gossage says TMS race will outdraw Cowboys

      Texas Motor Speedway general manager Eddie Gossage said he has no concerns about going head-to-head with the Cowboys' home opener on Sept. 15, when the Chevy 500 takes place at TMS to close the IRL season.

      "We will draw a bigger crowd than the Cowboys, I guarantee you that," Gossage said. "I also will guarantee you we won't get near the local news media coverage the Cowboys will receive, despite having the bigger crowd."

        Will the race be sponsored by Honda or Toyota?

          Well, it doesn't surprise me that a race could out-draw the Cowboys...at least for another few years. They haven't been doing too well of late (and, before you Cowboy fans get all bunched up, I've been a Dallas fan since Jerry Kramer cheated on the Bart Starr touchdown in the ice bowl.).

            I'll be at TMS. I'm not as optimistic as Eddie. He will sell more tickets, thanks to the season package. As far as people in the seats, I seriously doubt it.
            Texans love their football.

              I thought the season ticket package only accounted for 25,000 tickets at TMS.

              Correct me if I'm wrong.

              Oh, and from what I've seen of most Cryboy fans they are convinced every year that they're gonna win the Super Bowl.

                Hopefully the Honda and Toyota money will not merely displace other sponsors, but be an addition to it. That's the whole objective isn't it, to increase sponsorship dollars? Hope it works out that way in the end.

                  You're wrong - normally Eddie sells 45k to 50k season tickets every year.

                  You mean there're not ??

                  Well maybe not now since Rocket got hurt. But we still got Joey and that Jerry Rice starter kit Antonio Bryant

                        But this season ticket holder buys season tickets for the IRL races! I haven't sold my Cup tickets yet, but the thought has crossed my mind and I like Winston Cup.
                        Some people will do nearly anything in order to be able to not do anything.
