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.
