The Daytona issue was rumors at the race site itself and then confirmed at the friday night drivers meeting that it had been resolved the day before. The Sarasota issue was stated to me by a city councilman of Sarasota. The St Pete issue is just grumblings at this point coming out of the west coast(of Fla) due to the fact of why didnt LLC have the race there last year, being in their backyard so to speak.
Gordo, I have said it before and I will say it again, I race the LLC circuit, the SBI circuit, The OPA circuit and the only I care about is racing. I just know that with SBI and OPA I have not had to make any changes to my travel itenerary at all since March.
I am not defending Lee in any way whatsoever, but why does everyone point the fingers at him, it is NOT totally his fault. He is part to blame yes, but the almighty Glass house of yours called the almighty LLC has screwed the pooch on this one bigtime. UIM was in NC doing kilos this year not Savanah doing the speed trials.
My question to you is why is LLC in and out of court?, why did Detroit pull away?, why did Merc pull away? Why are the fans that requested for time off between the 17 and 23 of Novemeber pissed after losing money to the airlines amongst other things. Without us, the racers, LLC, SBI, OPA are all nothing. Without the fans, we the racers are nothing.
Gordo please quit defending them. Just go to ALA and have a great time, while the rest of us head down to the keys and enjoy the scuba diving. Better yet, go down to Westport and have a beer and think about what the fans are saying about this mess. They are not happy and when the fans lose interest how are you going to explain it to your sponsor? I know mine already has questions.
