With those 3 tracks now relartively tied together by ownership and management how will they work together 2020 and beyond? Race series? Rotataing classes? 3 nights of racing?

Does this union make the lights grow diimer faster at the "W-Grove" and pave the way for that to become the next shopping center?

I had a similar idea go thru my mind. Could very easily develop a series among the tracks or their own mini speedweeks. The options are almost endless and should only be good for all.

Even though I may not know you, I 
care what most of you think!

I don't think we'll see anything of the sort as long as relations stay how they are. Tracks in PA have done very well at working together for as long as I've been alive and well before that. As long the other tracks cooperate, I don't see any issues. There's no denying that this is a powerful partnership so I don't think Port or Williams Grove would be stupid enough to step on their toes even if they wanted to because together, this new alliance holds more chips than anyone right now and they can make life very difficult if they want to. I don't think we'll see that though. All of them are great businessmen who know the sport as well as anyone and they know things are best when everyone gets along.

I feel that all 3 tracks involved, Lincoln, Selinsgrove & Baps need the Williams Grove to keep fromm getting stale. None of those tracks will ever get to level of winning the Prestegious events of the Grove. I for 1 would feel cheated if the Grove fails to continue to operate on Friday nights even with low car counts & slim attendance. Friday nights will always be about The Clip. JMHO

PS. Pinky still survives by having the circus 6 times, Speedweek 2 times & the Diamond events which pay well event night & end of the year points payouts.  She will be just fine!!   Wish the best for all involved

just looking at it a driving time situation

lincoln baps and the grove are a better fit

selingsgrove is an hour or more away from the other two

hopefully this doesn't turn into a contest to have the grove close.

yea agree that the grove needs to have some improvements but loosing a track with such history will suck
