I for one hope this idea falls by the wayside very quickly. An NCCA type tournament structure won’t work for NASCAR.
In other racing news: If you’re planning to go to the Daytona 500 this year, the ticket price increased 4.4 percent to an average of $263 for a seat. That’s $10 more than in 2013. The average price in 2010 was $173 and in 2011 was $195.
NASCAR intends to eliminate 46,000 seats at the track by 2016, the intent is higher ticket prices. At a time of declining ticket sales at most events, is it a good idea to be raising the prices?
Noblesville driver Bryan Clauson won the Chili Bowl for Midgets in Tulsa this past weekend to claim his first “Golden Driller” award.
Clauson passed New Castle’s Caleb Armstrong on the sixth lap and led to the finish.
Kokomo’s Dave Darland finished fifth, New Castle’s Tracy Hines came home in 12th and Armstrong was credited with a 19th place finish.
Armstrong won a preliminary race on Thursday to qualify for Saturday’s feature and Clauson won on Friday.
