All true. I ran nearly all the races held at Watkins Glen, and I suppose we really didn’t think about it. Or if we did, our little brains just wouldn’t allow us to comprehend the consequences!!! I remember a fellow racer running through the “catch fences”. That will give you an idea how long ago that was!! I believe that was a WKA National too.
In this day and age, I can’t imagine WKA or any other org would ever sanction an event there do to the safety issues. I also can’t imagine what the rental fee would be per day!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow.
But of course a sprint track is another deal. They do have plenty of room there, but they need to know the interest is there as well. It’s nice to hope.
