    Why do so many fans leave Attica as soon as the 410 feature concludes? Why aren't they interested enough in the 305's to watch the feature? Ditto for the latemodels. Would a features only format be acceptable to the fans currently leaving ARP before the show is complete?

    I never have trouble getting out of ARP after a race because I always go east on the county road. Never thru Attica. You meet the nicest people at a dirt track, so fights are rare. The cops provide great motorcycle security. I never lock the ignition and never worry about my bike.

Make no mistake, it will be business as usual for law enforcement at ARP in 2019.
    Not sure how much "traffic" really needs directing after a local regular show especially since you stated you don't go to any of the WoO/All-Star races at Attica.

    The problem with traffic at Attica is 95% of the traffic goes west (towards the tracks) so you have a couple of exits that come out at the same area along with many times 2-3 rows of traffic trying to get down to one. Then throw in a train anytime after the races and it becomes an issue for a few minutes.

    Correct the officers there are being paid my Attica to show enforcement just like others tracks people venture. They aren't being paid to control/direct traffic and (IMO) sometimes by doing that it becomes just as big of a issue than not having them there. My advise is to park by the old factory/school area if worried about sitting in line of packed cars or simply go east if your worried about traffic and take the next road either left or right to head back the other way which is roughly a mile away.

    Looks like the "pesky" Attica police might be shutting down because of their levy not passing this past week which they threaten to close the police department down at the end of the year. So those traveling to Attica next year going down the old cemetery road at 30mph might not get pulled over anymore not doing the 25mph speed limit. Not saying that the county police won't take over or be in that area looking for a quick buck though.

    Trevor hasn’t been running as much it seems since the Mansfield deal. Hasn’t been at Attica last two weeks.

    Also, they decided before the points season started not to run all stars around same time max stambaugh decided not to.
