I won't be racing but I will certainly be there. More than willing to help if someone needs another set of hands.

Yeah them Amish can get a little rough! - track is out in the middle of Amish country - the incident last year was from a poorly promoted import race - Track had nothing to do with the promoting of that race as it was a track rental. The Matchems who own the track have invested everything into making a whole new facility - they have spent more than $8 Million on the track and it gets better every year

You really have no clue making a statement like that about a track you probably have never been to !

According to city data, the crime rate in West Salem is 2.7 times lower than the national average. The crime rate for Rochester, PA is 1.8 times higher than the national average...the irony.



I'm making the trip to 42 from Harrisburg. It's an awesome facility if you've never been there. Is there a time schedule for Saturday? What time the gates open, Time runs start, etc? Will be getting in late Friday night.

You've obviously never been there. Beautiful facility out in the country. It's 35 miles south east of Summit Motorsports park.

This track is beautiful! I was only there once as a spectator but, the staff and the track left a great impression on me.

That track is as safe or safer than any track in America. Coming from Pa I really don’t like the last 40 miles of the trip traveling by myself as some of the turns came up quickly but a lot of that was because of construction which should be done by now. The only thing bad about the race facility itself is I think because it’s used as a road coarse at times it gets VERY dusty pulling into your pit spot which in turn ends up everywhere. It’s nice to have a good radio to dial into the pa.

You live in urban Rochester Pa.minutes from towns like Beaver Falls and Monaca and are concerned about rural, Amish country West Salem, Ohio?

I think someone waded into a way deeper pool than they anticipated.

Don't consider it wading, been a Policemen since 1994. It is not a guess, but do what you want. Just saying the Cleveland crowd comes in there. Big bets going on hand to hand, so let it be what it is at that facility.
Best of luck to those who attend, was just a fair warning.

Different crowds for different events, no matter what track.
Just like different crowd at a rap concert than to see Michael W Smith

Usually I don't get to riled up, but. Have you ever been there? I'll bet not. Talking about something you no nothing about.

Was there last year, didn't know about shooting until we were there. Saw things 1st hand, sorry just saying what I saw. So probably just being over cautious, but that's me. So don't matter to me who goes. Wasn't starting a debate, just informing of what happened there
