Sportsman Modified Drivers,
received many emails and a few phone calls concerning
the Sportsman Modifieds at SSP for the 2014 season. It
has been brought to my attention that Big Diamond
Speedway has dramatically reduced the number of races
for the upcoming season. It is unfortunate that this
has happened as we were pleased with the support and
races produced by the Sportsman Modifieds over the last
two years at SSP.
that many of you would like to race on a weekly or
bi-weekly basis at SSP in 2014. If possible, we would
love to have this happen as well. However, we have five
divisions (Late Models, Street Stocks, Xtreme Stocks,
Road Warriors and Mini Vans). In order for me to make
room for the Sportsman Modifieds on a weekly or
bi-weekly basis, I would have to remove races from one
of our weekly divisions.
believe that you would agree that this is not a good
thing to do as it has happened to you. These divisions
have supported me faithfully since 2007. It would not
be fair to just drop them and bring in another division
without a good reason. Right now, I donít have any
reason to do that.
have races scheduled for 2014 on Thursday, July 3 and
Saturday, October 25. I am looking into scheduling one
or two more races, but I need to wait and see the other
speedway schedules so that we can have maximum
participation and no conflicts with the other speedways.
that this is not the news that many of you wanted to
hear, but please look at it from our side as well. If
the Sportsman Modifieds should become a regular division
at SSP in the future, Iím sure you would want the same
confidence and assurance that your division would not be
dropped immediately for any reason.
you and we look forward to seeing you at SSP this
Have a happy holiday season.
