    Yes, Fremont backed the wrong horse years ago. When the All-Stars had on foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel, Farmer backed the All-Stars. If he had backed the other group, the All-Stars would have been dead. What thanks did he get?

    Fremont and Mansfield have it right - forget the sanctioning body and put the money in the purse.



    Do you know how the All-Stars and Texas are alike. The both only have a lone star.

      ASCoC 2nd best purse and point fund in the country. Highest avg car count of any series currently.

      FAST series also a great local series with good point fund and a good amount of higher paying shows.

      Mansfield putting up big money next year for both sprints and late models

      Can we just quit the bashing and be thankful as race fans

        Agreed Jay. Sprints are in a good and growing place right now.

        No sanctions has trouble drawing casual fans. Now for big big money races like Mansfield's? Don't need it. For the two big money races Fremont had this past season? Didn't need it. But, You add in two or three ASCoC or WoO shows and your bottom line would likely move up considerably and expose new fans to the track.

          Farmer is the one that put himself into that position and nobody else to blame especially when he tried to get all the other Ohio tracks to do away with the All-Star speedweek show and try it on their own or even make it a "FAST" speedweek because Farmer wasn't happy about the fees/tow money for the All-Star speedweek show.

                    LOTS of traveling. Lots of NY races. Only 5 or 6 weekends of ASCoC racing in OH. Don't know how I feel about this personally. It's a good thing we have strong local racing cause Outlaws for some dumb reason won't go to anywhere but Eldora (Excluding the Doty which is the best of the Ohio WoO shows)... Pisses me off a bit to be honest they race at some tracks that barely have a full field with 360s in it and not more in OH. It's bitter season for me just like last year. But I'll enjoy our strong local series and tracks just like last year.

                      Ill be at fewer allstar shows this year. hopefully a lot of local drivers don't follow for points this year and make the local shows better around here and western,pa. I do like atomic on Wednesday during speedweek since I take that day off usually from going to Sharon Tuesday night. ill probably hit attica,wcs,Sharon, atomic, and muskinghum this year.

                        I think for that to happen the local tracks will need to upgrade their purse for some of those teams.

                        Besides Attica who runs normally for $3,000 to win you don't have any other track that does it. Fremont has a similar purse for 410's, but again not many other tracks even come close to it. Even the FAST or OSCS series actually don't have a higher purse it is just basically the same purse that the tracks normally have with just a guarantee of a certain number of drivers attending. Also not just talking "to win" amount either, but the entire A-Main purse.

                        I really like where we see three races in three nights at three different Ohio tracks a couple of times with Attica, Wayne County, and Millstream weekends ... those will be on my schedule for sure.

                        Will be interesting who will sign up for the All-Stars ... That stretch from July 27th to August 28th will be interesting for some of those teams. Not only traveling pretty far, but also the fact that they are going up against some of the best local racers in the country in Knoxville and Pennsylvania areas.

                        The one nice thing again though with the All-Stars is when they go for a long weekend for most teams based out of Ohio or near by they are usually racing 3 races in a weekend which should help especially those teams getting the tow money packages.

                        The All-Stars need to convince Tim Shaffer's team to run the entire series even though they probably ran 75-85% of the dates, need to find Dale Blaney a ride for the All-Star series even if that means putting Dale in Stewart's other car and possibly try and get a couple of the other PA guys to follow such as Dietrich and keep Ryan Smith on-board. Think they are going further west to try and get some of the IRA guys (Nienhiser) to look at them or at least run some more All-Star races along with possibly trying to convince some of the Knoxville guys to attend more All-Star races as well. The All-Stars had some pretty good younger drivers that went through the grind for the first time and will be interesting to see if some of those guys come back. Kemenah won the championship, but I actually thought he would run away with it not only in points, but in winning races. Don't get me wrong he had a very good year just thought he would have won a lot more races minus Dale Blaney this past year at most races.

                        Josh Baughman stated he will likely be in the Midwest a lot more to run WoO, All-Stars, Ohio, and PA this coming year and concentrating more on the 410's this season and move away from the ASCS.

                        Two guys I would like to see their teams step up and run the All-Stars is Carson Macedo in the 3G car and also Cole Duncan in his own 22 car. Those are some good young talent with a good team who both I believe can run very well and win some races with the All-Stars and have a bright future in the sport or at least I hope they stay in a winged 410 sprint car.

                          Politics at play.
                          How dare Mansfield try to one up Eldora by having bigger races not sanctioned. The E controls what happens with these sanctions, otherwise another track would be having a WoO show. Mansfield has the facility and ability to become the top track in Ohio so is therefore a threat.
                          Really hope the tracks that have been left out of the loop are successful.
                          I was thinking didnt all the races out of state prove to be bad for the former all star owners?
                          Seemed like there was quite a following of fans and drivers when they did more Ohio shows and kept Ohio tracks healthy.

                            Yeah between both the All Star and Outlaw schedules I really think the everyday weekly sprint tracks got left hanging for the most part. Attica got all of the usual races and I'm happy about that. Wayne County had the now usual 2-3 all star shows which is good. But surprised to see Atomic only with 2 after having multi weekend shows the past few years and that nobody else got an Outlaw show.

                            Excluding Eldora. Who we all asked for more outlaw shows at tracks not named Eldora. Immediately see more Outlaw races at Eldora.

                              You seem to forget that Attica has a WoO race and does quite well with it and Eldora.

                              Politics are in play and works both ways ... fans usually pick one side and don't open their eyes to the other side.

                              As for the out of state races ... yep that was a issue especially the "plains" trip which made no sense, but also at that time they wasn't offering guaranteed point fund along with getting tow money as well with contingency prizes under Webb. Also back then they usually didn't have at least 2 races or possibly 3 races on the same weekend in those areas as well which the All-Stars have done when they decided to do more traveling the past couple of years. Can't fault them for spreading their wings to some pretty good facilities along with some good race fans and teams/drivers (like Knoxville and PA).

                              Yes, would like to have seen them run at Mansfield, but guess it wasn't meant to be.

                              As for the Ohio tracks ... goes both ways as well which they could of added more dates or even 2-day shows, but didn't as well. When a certain track tried to form a group to push out the All-Star speedweek and form their own version of it that created a problem and seems to follow that person wherever he goes and helps out. In a ideal world all would get along and make sprint car racing better, but everybody is trying to show up the other and be the best themselves. Hopefully there is enough fans to go around and enough teams/drivers to satisfy everybody.

                              Think the weekly 410 winged sprint car racing has been hurt by all these local series such as FAST and OSCS. They have went against what was the purpose of when they started at least for FAST. It was created to keep guys local, bring up purses, create interest, and give the fans a small group to follow at Attica and Fremont. The problem became when they started traveling more and the drivers list went down with the purse staying the same as a normal show.

                              Atomic has some big late model shows that probably took some dates along with them trying to get more local 410 racing back at that track so I believe OSCS will be there a lot more too. Think the OSCS took a hit when they decided to do all that traveling for their teams.

                                I honestly don't see the OSCS existing next year... I've mentioned before I think only Danny Smith and Reeser followed the full tour with guys like Ryan Meyers, Josh Davis, and Bryan Nuckles running the vast majority.

                                The FAST is a good little series in my opinion. I don't really mind the minor amount of travel they do. One far race at Atomic, one decent travel race in Mercer (defunct so that won't be happening) then Waynesfield and Mansfield which are close by. My ideal schedule for FAST IMO would be once at Waynesfield and Lima for a weekend, Mansfield and Wayne County for a swing (I know that won't happen bc WCS is a competing track so to speak) then MAYBE a Sharon/Lernerville swing. Other than that just run 16 races at Fremont & Attica. If there is a backing to increase the point fund for these shows to say a standard of $3500 or $4000 to win I think the series itself could become more of an Ohio regional series than the All Stars. Many of our local teams that run once or twice in the series and come back local don't like having to travel as much as they do with ASCoC and maybe the FAST could become the actual regional series in Northern OH? If Farmer can get financial backing to increase the race purse and the overall point fund it would be really interesting in my opinion. Especially with the crop of all stars that raced last year...
