Hughes, you really hit the nail on the head with your post. Again, I would like to copy your disclaimer and add that I am very thankful to have a track here in town. That being said, I have to call it as I see it and I think a C+ is a bit generous. First off, I appreciate the added amenities behind the grandstand as well as the convenience of a shuttle in the parking lot, but let's face it, the dust hampers any positive experience and leaves more of a negative and literal gritty taste in your mouth. To that effect, to be blunt, the track surface was complete garbage. I will not accept the excuse that the water truck broke or that the track ran out of water because as Hughes mentioned these issues should have be fully addressed during the offseason practices. It is pretty clear that either the track is being prepped completely wrong or the surface is in dire need of deeper clay. The conditions that the drivers are being exposed to in the main events are beyond dangerous and it shouldn't take someone getting killed for the staff to realize the gravity of the situation. To that effect, I would like to point out the Twittle-Dee in the infield needs to keep his hands off the rope attached to the cone and Twittle-Dum up in the flagman stand needs to resist throwing the green when there is personnel anywhere near the front stretch or when the safety trucks are sitting on the outside edges of the turns. Seems like common sense to most, but safety is clearly not priority at Napa Speedway and that has to change stat. Please guys, get your stuff straight before you duplicate another disaster sprint car show.
