Are there any updates on the attempted sale of Badlands?

 One would assume that we are approaching D-day as far as having any racing for the 2017 season, correct?  (whether it be new owners or current ownership starting things back up this spring-if he were bluffing that is)

He is not bluffing. He is shuttering most of his businesses and properties and has been laying off people at a very quick pace. He has also cancelled every scheduled event at the pawn shop. One thing is for certain; Chuck Brennan will not be operating the speedway in 2017. If it is not sold it will sit idle.

Yo MadDog, how's Wilmot?  You said that's your home track, right?  That 8/18, 8/19, 8/20 weekend looks nice with 2 nights at Wilmot then Corn Fest at Angell Park.  Might make a nice vacation up to Wisconsin...hmmm...

Yes, my home track.  It has been around in one form or another, since about 1952.  The track is a 1/3, 3/8ths banked paper clip.  The racing is not too bad.  Some people will say it sucks or isn't that great, but what do they know?  The 2 nights at Wilmot are during the Fair and it will be PACKED.  Corn Fest will be PACKED also.  The closest hotel is about 8 miles or so away, and I do not think camping is available at either place during these fests.  May 20, Wilmot All Stars and May 21, Angell Park All Stars would be a good back to back but one less race than you mentioned above.  I camp, so I am partial to those type shows

I am planning on one or both of the Wilmot/Angell Park swing in May.  I am watching the IRA, All-Stars and WOO schedules to see what I can fit in this upcoming summer.  Already packing money in jars around the house!! 

 

Only reason I inquire on Badlands is I strategically planned my family vacation trip to the Black Hills so we have a stay over in Brandon, SD on Saturday night.  And on the way home?  Jackson, MN on Friday night. 

Hoping to see both tracks!!!!

It is a nice sign.  It may cause the Hawk to go with Darling next year though.  They have to be pretty strapped as far as salaries are concerned.  If you come for the All Star show at Wilmot, I'll drag you to Angell Park the next day.  I know, let's race.......

Honest question. Is Crawford overrated? I feel like Darling can get the job done and the talent isn't that big a dropoff. I just think Crawford is overrated.

I actually feel he is under-rated.  Maybe the regular season numbers never show him as a top-5 goalie.......but he has been the best player in two Stanley Cups even though he didn't win the Con Smythe in either.  

I get what your saying though.....you aren't alone in your thoughts.  Darling is probably every bit as good as he is in the regular season but Crawford was paid for what he has done in the last 3 or 4 years in the playoffs.  Time will tell.

Nickules, don't keep on topic.  This is a forum for sprint car fans. Not just for sprint car talk.  I like talking about other interests with fellow Hosers and I know Maddog does as well.

Yeah he was $ in both those playoff runs, you're right there. Regular season he's been meh...but can't argue with the rings. I just look at it as if he was on another team would he be as successful. He's not in the level of goalies who you could put on any team and be successful. Then again you don't need too. He's on the Hawks and has won multiple Cups.

Hell,I like it.  The Mrs. is a big Hawks fan & a Dale Blaney fan!  Been to the UC a few times,but maybe this yr we'll make Wisc. in May. Me?  I'm a Stevie Smith guy and we live in Ohio!  Looks like we'll be in Pa. again this yr too!  How bout the Jackets? Just made it 14 in a row.  Not a fan......I' all stick with my Bruins

Agree with EGRAS.  Hell, if he wouldn't have engaged me (or vice versa) in discussions about the Hawks during down times in the racing year, we may have never met and enjoyed the few tailgates and races that we have met up for.  My opinion on the Hawks goalies is that you can pretty much plug anyone in back there with Hammer, Seabs, Duncs and win a shit ton of games.  Anti Niemi hasn't done much since he won a Cup and left, plugged Crawford in and won two more.  I'm thinking that Darling could do the job also......We may be finding that out quicker than we think.....

Stubb, come on over, up, down, wherever you are from, to Wisconsin in May.  We may be able to have a huge Hoseheads sanctioned tailgate for the IRA and All Star shows

I believe everything except the radio station is for sale. 

Any word if I-90 can come out of mothballs yet?



Have even been hearing a rumor or two that he may shut the radio station down too. No word on I-90 yet. One thing is for sure about that place.........I sure as hell would not want to have to be anywhere near the bleachers there or force anyone I know to be around them.

I've heard that rumor as well, but the radio station makes money. (Supposedly)

They were making cuts everywhere else even before Chucky decided to take his ball and go home.

The I-90 stands can't be any worse than the time in the early 80s when a whole section slid down the hill about 10 feet during the national anthem when the SD National Guard jets did a flyby for the WoO show. Get a camping chair and sit on the terraces, like God meant racing to be watched out there.

It's been 10 years since I've been to I-90, but the stands at Park Jefferson could use some work as well.

We're all spoiled in the Midwest. You should see what they sit on at some of the PA tracks.
