    All that information is in the original post for each track. Under the FAST, OSCS, OVSCA, BOSS section.

    Also yes to Eldora i’ll Probably throw them in once they finish Sunday. Their car count average is in line with all other tracks for ASCoC/WoO events

    Instead of just going to local shows as you claim you need to go to a all-star, WoO, or a big event like the Kings Royal at Eldora where they had a big car count, the largest crowd ever at that event which broke last years record.

    The racing isn't dying just old men who always believe back in the day was better.
    He’s the same guy that said racing was better when women and children weren’t allowed, if that tells you anything.

In all types of racing, there are fewer cars than there used to be and every year a few more teams quit the sport. Car culture is dying. Look at the crowd at just about any race. Its mostly old white guys like me. When we're gone, probably so is racing. Robot racecars might be the future of the sport. Computer controled electric sprint cars? Who knows?

    WCS lost some regulars to OVSCS and a few drivers only raced one time as they said car sitting at home cause of jobs, family, money.
    Fremont and WCS were up against a lot of other Sat tracks this year with Atomic and Sharon concentrating on sprint division this year plus lots of specials with PPMS and a few more southern Ohio running sprint events.
    Only so many cars to split among the tracks.
    Attica had the least competition so it made sense they would have more sprint count especially if most of their shows were specials. I think their car count would drop if there were a few more sprint tracks on Friday.
    I think Attica figured it out they did better with specials and charging more gate money did not cut the crowd.
    Weather was a huge factor this year. It kept both cars and drivers away plus fans.
    I did notice at WCS on good nights there was more under 30 crowd then in previous years. Also saw more non whites at track in both stands and pits which changes the mix. WCS also had Amish families in attendance watching races. 2 cars had Amish sponsors.
    This may be where some new sponsor money will come from.

    Sharon is the only of the 5 tracks which I did not include in last years counts. Out of the four returning from last year, Fremont stayed the same while each remaining track lost a few cars on average. Attica lost an average of 2 cars, Atomic last an average of 3 cars, and Wayne Co. lost an average of 6 cars a race. Sharon with their resurgence of the Super Six series coupled with their 3 All Star shows saw a very high car count of 36 on an average, and also held the lowest "low" Count of the season. Most of the highest car counts occurred during Speedweek, with the exception of Fremont for reasons which have been beaten to death. Fremont's high count was achieved during the Jim Ford Classic. The All Star shows at these 5 tracks averaged at least 40 cars a show. Fremont only had one race get in that was not a FAST show. I'll be releasing a series based list shortly after the race Sunday.

I get Eldora has the world 100 but I went to the firecracker, dirt million, and the lucas oil shows around the 4th of july. And I went to the doty and silver cup for the sprints. I go to this event every year and its one of a kind.

    Is there a special ticket price to see both shows?
    That would be the deal.

    How many WOO fans come early to see a great show at the World 100? Both sides could maybe get impressed with each others racing style.

    Looks like Eldora WoO will be my last blast of the year. It will interesting to see if many DLM fans will stick around.
