From the 'WHO'......Lyrics from:

"Won't be Fooled again"

"Meet the new Boss...Same as the Old Boss !!"

No 'VP Director of Short Track Operations', no "Director of TRACK PR", no corporate heads, just a short track paying a whole lot of money !!

"Clash at the Can " paid $8000 + to the winner, Billy Decker !

Winner of the "GOBRECHT MEMORIAL" WON $7000 !

Winner of the Mitch Smith Memorial won $10,000 not $300 !!

Look at what Fonda, another short track paid  $9500!!

"What it Was"

I recently sent a message to Scott Pacich commenting about "Where racing went wrong". Scott picked up on it , added his racing memories, along with his father's racing endeavors, and came up with this column........
