      Questioning doctors is fine especially medical doctors. I do the same which is why I have a doctor that's more interested in treatment than shoving pills into me. When it comes to the scientists that study the virus, I still read some of the information in science journals or from actual scientific organizations. I don't get my information from the news, never have.

      I'm fortunate with my background & job that I am able to understand & have access to information that although it's public, it's not easily accessible. We have weekly calls with some

        I'm fortunate with my background & my job that I am able to understand & have access to information that although it's public, it's not easily accessible. We have weekly calls with some of the scientists with my company to give us updates on the thing. My company already told us last Monday that we would not be returning to the office until after memorial day because it was worth the risk. Biggest concern out of every one of them is medical staffing, resources, and infastructure. When looking at the rate in which infection spread & taking into account the amount of hospitals, workers, staffing, equipment,etc & then taking into account the avg amount of other issues they deal with each year (flu, car wrecks, heart attack, outpatient, surgery, various illness) the math does not add up. As our head person said, we can't make math do something it doesn't want to do.

I'm not gonna get political but honestly think social media and news blew this up worse than need be. People gonna die yes but more will survive and it's called pandemic for reason. It's a virus but social media created pandemonium
          60,000 plus dead in 2 months, this isn't overblown especially when you think about most have been "stay at home" for 5-7 weeks so just imagine what that number would be if they wasn't stay at home/quarantined. The problem started when one side didn't believe this was serious while having rallies and calling it a democratic hoax and playing golf. Then he preaches about opening things up a few weeks ago not because that is what is best for Americans, but what is best for himself and being re-elected and getting people behind him. Now even his expert doctors aren't allowed to speak to congress and being told they can't.

          The problem is likely not going to go away and likely going to get worse when all these governors keep getting pressure to open back up by the people along with seeing their bank for their states going into the red with the federal government keep telling them they are on their own. The experts keep saying it could come back around in the fall/winter and could actually be worse, but who knows.

          One problem for racing community is a lot of the fan-base is older or in that higher risk area with other health issue that makes this virus deadly with heart issues, diabetes, and many other healthy issues. So does the track owners take the risk and see what happens or they keep waiting for the local government to tell them when they can go back with mass gatherings.

                    In the south they sure do know how to waste time especially during a weeknight show. Starting late, track prep that they say will be 10 minutes that turns into 30 minutes, etc...

                    After watching the past couple of weeks I dont really understand their formats in the south sometimes.

                    Do these promoters know that some people still work and some have to get up early?

                        Got Dirtvision for the 20% off for the fastpass deal and enjoyed the show.

                        Watched FloRacing the past couple of weeks and enjoyed the late models, but everything else just drags on ... those southern states sure do love their mods and make the show go on all night and into the early mornings while even starting early.

                        Watched 1-55 last night and was okay, but again dragged on and liked the late models there. Was nice to see old man Billy Moyer win and do well, but again 2 classes of mods dragged the show out once again.

                        From reports the speedshift sprint car show in Missouri took all night and into the morning as well. Seems these promoters haven't learned anything about either starting on time or keeping the show moving along. Fans might be starving for dirt racing, but they aren't going to stay up until the early morning hours or keep bringing their families if tracks don't change things up and that is where we are losing the younger families, younger generation, and keeping the sport alive into the future.

                          I-55 is hour behind. They had a ton of good quality cars in LMs & mods.didn't care for qualifying the mods but oh well. Hotlaps was 630 and racing done around 1230am eastern. Outta the track by midnight in your time zone on a Saturday night is not past unreasonable

                            Most of the time wasted I was talking about was the late model races the past weekend where they started at 4:30 and I don't remember when it got over because I fell asleep watching it.

                            As for I-55 ... they wasted a lot of time as well and also 6 hours for a young family isn't ideal either. The more and more PPV I have watched over the past couple of years is that I respect and cherish our local tracks a lot more because they worry about starting on time and keep the program moving as well which means getting out on time as well.

                            What time did the other sprint car race take to get over? 2-3am and didn't have any weather-issues I believe? Didn't watch it, but heard it was a very late night.

                            Trying to look at this for all race fans and not just the 45-65 age group or even older that don't have nothing else to do or don't have young kids to worry about. Trying to keep growing the dirt track racing community we need the young people and having them going home early or feeling they aren't getting their money's worth might not be as likely to come back or bring their kids with them next time.
