    I'm thinking of checking the show out tomorrow but not sure if I want to drive an hour and a half to do it. My biggest concers is that it will be a huge collection of o/t cars. so if anyone that has been could chime in, I appreciate it.

    more dirt track cars and go karts than anything else. only a hand full of cars worth looking at. why does Frank Maratta put on such a crappy show. he was there back in the day. shouldn't he know whats cool? seems like anything with wheels gets in.
