Looking for some drivers to come help promote our event and our sport on a local fox TV station on Friday Feb. 15th.(the friday of our event) Looking for a champ or sprint driver, snow cross driver, and a vintage driver. I have a stock 600 and a 120 driver already. This would be live coverage over a 3 hour program. If interested PM me and I will give you the rest of the details.
Thanks in advance
Dewey

Will you even have any Champs there with Valcourt and McGregor being the same weekend? You have such a nice track, its too bad you didn't go another route.

Thanks for the compliment, alot of man hours go into making it. Hopefully with the reputation of the track conditions, facilities and the safety measures, people will see the benefit of going here vs. going elsewhere. We also put an extra $500.00 to the winner of champ . I know a couple of champs coming for sure.

"Hopefully" is not something I would want to stake all of the hard working volunteer hours and the reputation of the track on. Didn't you guys have an opportunity to bring a big TV package to your event? That I am sure would have made all the difference.

Yes we looked at the big TV offer. We went with something more local that would reach 600,000 people for less money.
We volunteer our hours because we like the sport and how it has brought our community together.
Best of luck to all racers this weekend.

You are right...local and small is always better. Give me a break. Doesn't your community deserves a full show? And wasn't there a few in your group who wanted to make a choice to better the event?

You can't even get 600,000 to watch a Brewer game, so don't give me that 600,000 people crap.

Back off Ice Ghost. These people work their tails off to produce and promote this event. The local FOX "Good Morning" show is a market leader that focuses on local events amd on-site programming. Between the Fox Valley, and Green Bay it reaches well over 600K. You know so much........put on your own race.
