Default Carolina racing sux

I have been splitting my time between Florida, the Carolinas and a few months in Alabama. Naturally I am at the track when ever possible, and I can offer this jewel of wisdom: racing outside Florida generally sux.

Why? The tracks are fine: dirt or pavement, they are abundant and generally well maintained. The racers are top notch. There are usually a lot of cars and they come prepared to go at it. So what is the problem?

The show is the problem.

This is "NASCAR country" so every Saturday night track fashions their show after NASCAR: all cars in all classes qualify, they all start straight up, and the races are generally too damn long.

I don't really hear the southern fans complaining about the lack of competition. I notice it very much because I was used to the 12 car inverts in TBARA, and the fact that so many Florida tracks take steps to mix up the field.

Say what you will about Mr. Yoho, Mr. Guy, Mr. Gentry and others, but they all understand that the fans are not thrilled by yet another wire-to-wire victory.
