the problem with places like the North Wilkesboros or Rockinghams isn't just a facilities problem. it's everything associated with a hosting a race. a lot of these towns simply can't handle the type event or don't have the infrastructure in place to host the people and traffic; be it hotels, interstates, or track facilities. there's WAY more that has to go into a race than just a state of the art track. these areas simply didn't have the cash needed to to grow with the sport. it's sad yes, but it's also simple economics. it is what it is.
funny how the people who wanted the sport to grow now wish they could have the old days back.
