The Last Chance Promotion team that is taking over Quincy Raceways in 2014 is already mapping its course of action. Ken Dobson, who will serve as track manager, was kind enough to answer some key questions for us. We’ll be bringing you his thoughts in the coming days.
Here is Question No. 9:
Stevie Dirt: Knowing your history with sprint cars, is there a good chance the sprints will make regular appearances at the track in the future? How about as part of the weekly schedule?
Ken Dobson: We aren’t going to force sprint cars on the Quincy fan base, even though the three of us come from sprint car backgrounds. But the MOWA (Midwest Open Wheel Association) shows we have had at Quincy have been well received. So we will continue to have a few and mix in a little open wheel stuff now and then to see whether it’s something we can build on down the road.
One positive part about diversifying shows on occasion with sprints or midgets is that it gives fans a chance to see some drivers they otherwise wouldn’t see. We had (NASCAR Nationwide Series driver) Kyle Larson in victory lane this season at Jacksonville, which was pretty neat. I think Quincy fans would appreciate those opportunities now and then.
