Maybe Brown was pissed cause Schatz won again?  Sarcasm.  I didnt see it so dont know what took place, but Schatz is a very clean driver. 



Brian may have been sharing something both may have been upset with during the race and it only appeared to be Brian upset with Donny. Another driver, maybe? Only they know for sure.

It was my first time there, but I can assure you not my last! It really reminded me of a smaller version of Knoxville! Considering all the rain the racing was great to go along with the facility. I can see big things coming from this place in the future. It was great seeing JJ double up and Schatz is just...... well......Schatz! Without a doubt the best sprint driver of this era, and will go down as one of the BEST ever! Looking forward to those hot August nights at the Schatzville nationals!

I hope they can work with the All stars next year so that they aren’t racing the Jackson Nats weekend. No one in that series would have been a threat to win the 40k, but the field would have been much deeper with Reutzel, Kemenah, Macedo etc...

A 50 car field with an ultra competitive B main is all this show lacks.

looks and feels like knoxville, bleachers, catch fence and elevator just like knoxville. they have done an amazing job with the facility. racing was excellent.  Thanks Tod for the awesome facility. 



The stands were steep and close to the track, didn't look like a bad seat in the house.  Each seat was a lot  w-i-d-e-r than Knoxville's which was great.  (Knoxville supposedly took care of that problem this year.)  A couple things they need to iron out with the seating; 1. let people know about the "Family Section" (no drinking) when they order their tickets online;  2.  Let general admission people know that the reserved section extends into the blue seats.  A lot of people thought that red was reserved and blue was general admission.   They got there early to get good general admission seats only to be booted out when the people with reserved tickets arrived.

Other than that, like everybody's been saying, it was a super facility with great racing in spite of what mother nature threw at them.

One other suggestion--more port-a-potties please . . .

Never been to Jackson, decided to make the trip for all 3 nights. I was shocked at where our camp site was. Like I said, never been there before and I had assumed that the old camping area by turn 3 was renovated, not realizing they built a brand new one! It's really nice and will be even better in the future when the grass is fully grown in. (It was a muddy mess due to all the damn rain) Here's our site (the camper with the flags) really close to everything. Concrete walk to the pits. 

Friday night there wasn't much racing really, single file. That changed Saturday! Very impressed with what the track crew pulled off. Fantastic racing in both shows Saturday. We'll be back next year. 

Little Forbrook put on a hell of show himself Saturday night as well.

I will preface this statement that I haven’t been to Jackson in many years, due to my location. But have followed along live on social media, etc. 

Either your statements are meant to be sarcasm, or you are in the vast minority From what be seen here, or talked in person to a long time area sponsor from that area here in NC SD last Thur and he couldn’t stop raving of the improvements nor the racing he’s seen there recently. His only disappointment was that he had business commitments up in my neck of the woods that prevented his attendance of the Nats last weekend.
