    I agree with most of your commentary, which is well thought out. My concern is still with having tracks running reduced schedules or laying down. There needs to be a limit to this or it’ s going to get worse. This is not very scientific, but I’m not convinced that all tracks lose a significant number of fans when a special event is held somewhere. Many people attend only specials, so that doesn’t impact weekly racing attendance. And, many tracks have loyal, local fans who attend a specific track and don’t travel. Until it’s been tried / tested, the loss of fans is only hypothetical in my mind. But, I admit my theory is just that - a theory. If nothing else, this makes for an interesting discussion on a slow and cold weekend.
    My theory is a little different. I am convinced that some tracks would lose a significant number of fans for a special event like this. This is a special event that could be more special than most. I think Attica and Fremont are 410 tracks with diehard 410 fans. When 410's don't race the crowds seem down significantly. I think they know the stands would not be packed if they scheduled against this race. Is it worth the risk to them? I think it's a calculated risk they weren't willing to take. I totally understand your point about laying down though. It could be bad and get worse. Weekly local racing could fall victim to special events racing only so your point is well taken. Btw, I have been reading some very good discussion around here lately. It is nice to see some constructive conversations whether we all agree with each other or not. I don't know what happened for sure but it sure is nice.

      So far the list I have of drivers. Most are from Mansfield's posts on facebook but some I've seen the teams recently confirm they have registered/attending the race.

        I thought there would be more for early entry. Where are the FAST cars and even the ALL STAR list.

          I thought I read somewhere they had 31 pre entries....and looking at their website and without counting it looks like they have around 500 reserved tickets sold.

              They’ve been sort of teasing the entry list out slowly. Early entries done April 2nd and last entry is the 24th or 25th I believe.

                Anyone know if they'll live stream this online? Not sure if I can make it in person and I'd buy it online if available.

                  They had tweeted earlier that it would be on speedshifttv.com and said to stay tuned for details.

                          Yes yes this isn't nearly a complete list. I'm just trying not to put anyone on there that I haven't heard a solid source that they're entered into the event. i don't want to put blatantly incorrect info on there.

                          Also there are "54 drivers from 10 states are currently registered" per pennsboro23 on hoseheads but I don't know how reliable that is.

                            That was tweeted earlier by #SCWC So I'd say its reliable.

                                I don't understand the logic of announcing 1 driver at a time. I just want to know whose entered haha. As it stands I'm not going to buy tickets until I get an idea of what the weather looks like. But if they did release a full list and reserved ticket sales started picking up I might consider buying tickets sooner.
