In that BtL, Ron didn't even realize Ralph was tweaking him, when Ralph said something like "If you are going to start a new organization, at least come up with a new name." LOL.

I am not at all up to speed on this USRA thing, but I have seen nothing that tells me why the Nats were removed from SlotCars-R-Us.

 

Was Tracy part of the new group or something?

I'm not an expert on the subject, but AFAIK Tracy agreed to hold the race with the "rebels," in charge, with additional classes, and changes in the rules.

No matter who or what organization moves forward from here.In order to be successful they will have to make some unpopular decisions in order to get and retain racers.You simply cant turn things like group F into "Pro F" and expect people to join in.You cant keep changing things to please the dwindling few racers and expect things to be a success..

Hopefully all this leads to some better racing one way or another.

Burying your head in the sand has been the easiest way to change the USRA for years.
