Well after several years of Maple Grove not catering to the little guys who just want to run their cars for fun things appear to have changed there. A new track manager is taking over operation this year and the Fri night grudge/test and tune schedule is now MUCH better. Early in the year the 2018 schedule was on their website, there was nothing for the little guy from mid Aug to track closing in Oct. The new revised schedule is on the site and WOW, what an improvement. Now instead of nothing in Sep and Oct there are 5 T&T opportunities, 21 T&T for the year. Running the car at the track in the Fall has always been my favorite time. Maple Grove is a first class track but never treated the patrons very well except for the big events. Now let's hope the new manager sees the need to continue to take care of the little guys who still make up 98% of the car hobby.
This year drag racing at Raceway Park in Englishtown NJ came to an end after 50 years, the encroachment of the expensive homes took care of that sighting the noise as the reason. Probably the same developments that don't allow an American flag to be flown.
I've raced at both Maple Grove and Cecil County dozens of times, both still out in the sticks, hopefully they stay that way for years to come. http://www.maplegroveraceway.com/wp...aple-Grove-Raceway-Season-Schedule-2.pdf
