Douglas is only running Crandon. Mittag i hope is running a full season. Menzies we will only see in Crandon i believe for short course.
I have a feeling the new rules in Pro 2 have made that class more appealing, and will be surprised if we don't see that class remain healthy or grow....if I were faced with the choice of a truck class to race, I would for sure go into Pro 2 - best bang for your buck. But then again, I tend to like spec classes......That's a shame...just a couple of years ago, it seemed Pro4 was relatively healthy with 10-12 trucks out west. The last year seems to have decimated the class. Bradley Morris isn't going to run Pro4 in addition to the Pro2, I take?
Hopefully Pro2 doesn't suffer the same fate...
I do think it will get better once they get the rules issues fixed. Pros in the midwest would already be dead if Lucas would not have taken over. Lets hope it all works out for everyoneSad to say but the whole short course sport from midwest to west is not looking healthy.
I’m unsure of what the PL numbers are out west but i know in the midwest it’ll be 6 or lower. Just like p4, it has to do with LS and chassis rules hanging over everyone’s head, and a big difference in midwest / west coast rules.
p2 is fine for now, but if they don’t make the changes to allow both midwest and west teams have the same engine / tire package, i think you’ll start to see that class struggle. Sportsmen racers saved that class in the midwest and i think you’ll start to see numbers dwindle in the near future.
It bums me out to see this awesome sport in such turmoil in a day in age where different/grassroots motor sports are thriving with online attention. The midwest sportsman divisions are currently upset after some decisions from lucas to being usac back to the midwest. Drivers are disappointed after the wrongs usac has committed and added fees.
I hope all of this can be straightened out and brought back to all of its glory. It’s just not the same anymore.
