But, what's even more stupid is they are talking about turning It into some NASCAR theme'd amusement park
Why would moving the event to NC be a bad decision?
Everyone who attended it annually got use to where it was, and what surrounded it. A lot of mini meets took place at night or simultaneously during the day at various places around Nashville. The guy who started IA owned a Burger joint which had an awesome meet Saturday night. It was just a very cohesive experience, and I think they'll be hard pressed to make it into what it use to be. Plus Nashville is more centralized than Charlotte. But maybe the move will be better for the meet itself in terms of it surviving, who knows.
Subjectively, I'm tired of all the major meets I attend being located further away, of which there are only two. Probably won't end up going to anything this year.
That is very true. I hope the pre-meets and things of that nature carry on to Charlotte. But I suppose we will see. From what I have heard Nashville couldn't lend out the stadium at that time. So they had to find a place with enough capacity and a somewhat popular area. I hope things pick up over the years and it will grow broader but only time will tell.
