Wouldn’t that be the responsibility of the tracks to get local riders to show up….[/quote]
This is another thing that is lost, the tracks need to go get their own riders and do more than use the fact that riders need local races for their state points.
Make it fun, make the riders wanna race for the sake of racing and not to get a plate. Get your own riders, rather than relyon who needs locals for their plate. It’s call marketing, some of you have made it clear you are running a small business running thes tracks, then act like they are, because if a business is run like some of these tracks, they would be out of business
