    Why on earth would you say you wanted to add a short track after yanking a race from a short track. You disappointed so many fans in the Richmond market and beyond. Dario issued an apology for a boring race at Richmond last time. So what are you doing? You take a race out of an American Market and put one in Brazil. You take a race away from one short track and put it at another. I don’t understand your tactics at all. For every fan you gain…you turn away thousands of others and you just don’t seem to see this. It’s frustrating and infuriating.
