          It basically said he cancelled because the top ten in points didn't want to drive there and the unfavorable weather forecast. Translation............ Driver support wasn't there and fan support wasn't ther so why have the show.

            I will say Sommer has been smart on cancelling events he knows he is going to lose money on. I can't blame KY/WV drivers not wanting to drive to Mansfield to get their butts whipped by someone like Strickler or Stremme who would probably show up.

              Yea it was worth a try but theres a reason Eldora dropped the big modified show. Nobody really cares about modifieds in ohio as much anymore. Sprint car territory #1 and #2 latemodels. I go to race track every week and you don't hear much about modifieds very often and not one has even mentioned the upcoming show at Mansfield let alone going.

                  I was told there was a $350 entry fee also. So that really doesnt help getting teams there.

                  I will agree with Mud, Mods are #3 behind Sprints & LM's

                      No lawn mower racing? I saw a garden tractor race at Richland County Fairgrounds on a temporary dirt oval. I enjoyed it.

                        If you're looking for a big modified race, Montpelier in Indiana is having one this weekend. They run 2 features the first one pays 3,000 to win and 300 to start. The 2nd one for people who don't qualify for the first pays 1,000 to win and 100 to start. They will have around 60+ mods. If anyone is interested.

                          Montpelier is a good track enjoyed the USAC midget race earlier this year. Work this weekend but fiancé and I are absconding to Indiana next weekend for gas city and Montpelier.
