Tracks around the country have a lot to deal with to put on a great show. They have to deal with the weather.

When they are not dealing with the weather, they are dealing with low car counts. Or even trolls on social media who mock the owners’ or promoters’ every decision and criticize it.

“To all my fellow track promoters, we made the best decision we have ever made this morning pertaining to running a track… resignation!,” Josh said in a Facebook post. “I feel like I have been let out of jail lol. Think about this… Turns out, we (promoters) really don’t have to lose bunches of money and listen to constant whining from people with a smartphone that has zero idea of what this entails.

“It’s as easy as turning it off and focusing on our happiness each weekend with family trips and relaxation. This weekly “thing” is dying faster than ever now, anyway. So let’s step away and let the ones making $$$ with television and huge shows provide us the entertainment. Thanks to Vic and Christa, the staff, and all of our supporters (which is a good amount of people). You all had our back and we will not forget it.”
