If this is true, thats too bad. I like all the guys involved with the team and have been a friend of Zomers for quite some time. With that being said, I have said for the last 2 years that I wish the people that were being bitched about, would prove a point and give everyone something real to bitch about. All these guys did was get flack about what they are doing, and now that they closed up, the same people bitch that they are done. "They should have thicker skin" they say. In most cases thats true, but cmon guys, its been like going to highschool. About mid way through 2016,  when everyone had a bitch about badlands, I said I wish he would just up and close. Lock the gate and not open it back up, with no explanation. When he did that, everyone was bitching he closed. Sad fact of SD racing, is nobody can ever be happy, its always personal, and it has made me ashamed to be apart of the SD racing community honestly. Now we have 2 places sitting idle, and everyone is still bitching. We bitch because we dont like the guy who came in, continue to bitch about everything he does and has done, and now bitch because we have nowhere to race. Get it together guys, The racing community as a whole, even though they weren't the sole cause, played a big part in the decline of racing in SD, and its sad that nobody can actually see that.

Hopefully the BWW team did not close shop, and I wish them well in whatever it is they decide to do for 2018!

As I recall it, a good portion of the criticism of the BWW car had mostly to do with bouncing from driver to driver. I think it's been proven that it takes some patience to get a team rolling with consistancy and success. I don't recall anyone out and out bashing the car's potential. I think everybody agreed the car was fast and nobody wanted it to go away.  And as for Husets/Badlands, those of us that were critical of that deal simply had our eyes open and could see the writing on the wall. Even those things that could have had a positive affect on sprint car racing in the area were done from the standpoint of "look at me"......"look what I can do" and "screw the rest of the sport". That is not a recipe for success.

Honestly I think most people that were getting in that ride would of known how Todd decided, who gets to race. So it should've of been no suprise if you weren't racing that weekend. 

Same with Chuck. I think most people knew what the potential was with saying F you to the world, and wrecklessly throwing around money. Short term sacrafice isn't worth killing the long term goal. I don't like talking about this over and over again so I'll stop. But I don't think too many people are suprised what's going on in SF rights now. 

I too, hope that Todd, and Susan, continue to support sprint car racing in whatever capacity it may be.

I see Zomer is listed as an early entry. Could the rumors about the 82 closing the doors be false or is the 91 back in business? Time will tell. Come on March 25th Smile
