You got the huge crowds that go to Eldora for the entire weekend will some of those people want to venture to Mansfield on Sunday or simply go home? This might be a deal where you will see more fans that are traveling that week that will hit that show than a lot of Ohio local fans going to it. You will likely still get your regular local fans going to it, but not sure your going to get the fans that all go to Eldora than to Mansfield ... as of right now I doubt I go to this event simply because I already take off Thursday and Friday and spend a lot of time, money, etc... I usually go with my brother, dad, and his friend for a "boys night weekend". We use to have around 20 guys at one time and now down to 4.
Round #3 ... August 13 ... Sunday after the already 2 day Great Lakes show (competing with Knoxville weekend). Again be interesting to see how many cars will come to this event. Obviously the FAST/OSCS will be there for the Friday and Saturday night shows. Will they stick around for the third night in a row paying 5,000 to win, 15,000 to win, and another 5,000 to win? The big question is do they keep round #3 with the late models or do they switch it the to the 305's since they are already there? Going to be putting up a lot of money that weekend so it will be interesting to see if the local fans support it the entire weekend especially knowing all the big teams (WoO, All-Stars, and bigger traveling teams) will all be out at Knoxville. That could be a make or break weekend for the track and putting up that kind of money on 3 day show in a row ... they have the Boss non-wing cars there for 5,000 to win both Friday and Saturday too besides the make-up Sunday show. So could be a huge weekend for the non-wing cars!! The USAC sprint cars aren't running that weekend so could be a bigger non-wing show than anything else, but that is also when the USAC midgets are in PA too (August 13) Susky. The Silver Crown cars for USAC are in Salem on Saturday (August 12).
Will be interesting to see the fans, drivers, teams, and owners and how they support those 2 weekends for sure!
