BAPS is the name of a automotive paint and materials chain of stores in the central Pa area.

The question of what is BAPS should be an eye opener to the BAPS people and Susky speedway. Just calling the speedway BAPS Motor Speedway is great but when no one knows what BAPS is and it is not explained in the speedway name I think someone dropped the marketing ball.  In my opinion just saying BAPS does nothing to grow the business or ROI if people don't know who or what BAPS is. I thank them for their support of racing but they have a long way to go before BAPS is on the same level as COKE and McDonald's.  My point being what they do needs to be in the speedway name and press releases.

BAPS is an auto body supply company with seven stores. It was started by Austin Hogue's grandparents (Berkeimer).

I knew what BAPS is, heck I bought paint at their Lemoyne  store for my first two sprint cars in 1988.

Also I don't just see the BAPS cars from the stands I see them up close and personal on the track.

My point about the name is to get as much ROI as possible.  So someone please explain to me when BAPS Motor Speedway is used in a press release or in a race recap story or on even SprintCarUnlimited.com. How does using just the name BAPS, and not explaining what they sell; generate any media exposure or customers.  Most writers will just say BAPS in the article they won't spend more time writing out what it is every time.  And if I need to go to the races to know what BAPS is then they could have spent a lot less money and just bought a billboard at the track.

I want to personally thank BAPS for all they do for the sport of sprint car racing and local short track racing.  

It is just my opinion that the naming rights could activated better. When we already have people asking what is BAPS I guess on one hand that is a good thing and looking at it another way it means people haven't a clue what the business is. JMHO

My question came from Saskatchewan so my ignorance is qualified. But the naming rights have already made them known to me. i am sure the question will be asked many times with many people becoming aware of the stores. I didnt know what Ollies or Casey's GS was before seeing it on a sprint care but i do now. I would love to walk thru an Ollies cause their website makes it look fun and we stop at Casey's if there are 2 or more gas stations to chose from just cause they support sprinters.

Napa, Coke and Pepsi all had to cut their teeth in the branding game before they become household names.

With that in mind you dont drink pepsi or coke, you drink cola and you dont blow your nose with Kleenex, it is tissue paper. My computer doesnt know what a frisbee is but it does know that the Frisbee company makes flying discs.

I could be wrong, but most Central Pa fans do not like Lincoln & Port Royal hosting "two" Pa Speed Week races. They are OK with Williams Grove having two just the way the week long schedule is laid out. They prefer other tracks are included. I trulely hope the rumors are correct and BAPS gets a date in 2018.

They should drop all the doubles, get a new track or two and shorten the event by whatever left open spots are left.

Susky/Baps does not and will not have a 2018 date. The Speedweek schedule looks the same as last Years with the exception that Ports 1st race is on the Wednesday and Hagerstown got bumped to Thursday.

It will be terribly wrong if BAPS does not get a date......Gobrecht continues to pump major money into the ole joint. The fans want and deserve a Speedweek race @ BAPS. I know Williams Grove, Port Royal & Lincoln run 410's on a weekly basis but the lore of the Pa Speedweek has always been multple tracks over the couse of a seven to ten day period.....Unfortunately it looks like GREED is getting in the way.

Yea, from my one experience there, I would say Susky is a fun, racy track.

Oh well....

 If you look at all the schedules that are out now, the only two open dates are Sunday and Tuesday. I assume the Tuesday date will be for Grandview. So, that just leaves a Sunday and that may be for path valley?

Like medians on the highway.  Place is gonna be filled with jersey barriers pretending to be concrete walls. And the facility as a whole pretending to be a MOTOR speedway. But hey if you got Whelen safety lights then it must be a MOTOR speedway. Nevermind that they can't run a time trial show to save their life. But hey... It's a MOTOR speedway now. BAPS MOTOR SPEEDWAY.
