I’m curious how many new people tried the Rock this year?  It seems like mostly the same racers every year.  Obviously that will eventually run out.  I’m sure the promoters are doing everything they can think of to bring in new racers, but maybe the market just isn’t there anymore.  Perhaps the economics of the race still work at these numbers and it’ll just continue on status quo?

Does anyone thing the Modesto disaster had a negative impact on RIGP?  Earlier this year, I thought maybe the Modesto race would help bring back the prestige and excitement of the street races.

I know Rock Island is a cool race, and I know they treat their competitors well, but there are soooo many other options right now, and many of them are just as cool and their promoters treat the racers just as well.
