Can you hear the Southern Thunder?
By Danny Snow
Now that the finger pointing and the name calling has shifted from Desoto to Charlotte, which track will be the next "main topic" of the KARNAC message board?
For some people it's only one person they have a personal grudge for. For other's it's the whole team. From the people who make the calls to the ones who do nothing but show up to give their support.
To everyone who likes/loves short track racing, we need to show our support for the track, the racers and the future of the sport.
You like pizza? You go to your favorite pizza shop and support that place of business. If you don't support it, it will be gone. Same goes for your favorite bar, grocery store, gas station and so on and so on. Know what I mean?
Charlotte County Speedway has been there for a long time, why let it go with a "aw, who cares". If you enjoy racing, then support the facility that brings you the capability to do just that, ENJOY!!
How many people go to a track with a smile because they are doing something they enjoy?
How many people go to a track just to look around and see how many things they can find to fuss about for the next week or two?
If a place of business was just starting out and you went to see what it was all about and enjoyed doing business there for let's say four years or so, and then all of a sudden, the next time you go there you find that it has changed owners or management and you don't like the changes because it's not like it used to be, even though you still enjoy using the product the business is providing for you, do you abandon the place you are happy with?
Or do you try and find another place for the same reasons you started going to that first business for only to find that it cost more and it isn't better anyway?
I don't do much for Charlotte County Speedway, but I do feel pretty damn good about what I do.
I have to put in alot of hours to make a living for my family and Uncle Sam. If I could afford the time, I would give the "#1 CCS Fan" a run for the money as far as the SUPPORT goes.
Come on out Saturday night and lets show the community and the racers that we want the Speedway to be a benifit to the business' and the surrounding areas. Not just a bunch of noisey cars going around in a circle so people can bitch about it on the computer the next day and hide behind a mouse with a fictional name.
