Re: Hot Day at Mopars at the Srrip



Tom will have the "eye-witness news" but here is another perspective.

It's a big place so it would take a lot of people to fill it up. 

https://instagram.com/p/0ypSZzQOJ8/ is a stands view. Not everyone goes to the races. Lot of swap and gab elsewhere.

Years ago a Mopar club opened up to non-Mopars their previously all-Mopar annual show & race. The hope was to draw a bigger crowd to watch the racers and help pay for the facility and more money for charities. I don't remember that the strategy paid off. 

Thanks,
Gary H.
