I agree, the schedule was right on.
As far as the facility, I don't think they've made any capital improvements in years. I'm spoiled too, Charlotte is pretty nice, compared to Maple Grove...well, there's really no comparison.

Interesting. Well, Bader had nothing to do with the schedule. I wonder what he's actually done at the place since being hired to make improvements. Or maybe that deal fell through.

Bader was hired as manager of the track replacing the late Joe Sway who Died suddenly over the winter.

If you want bathroom improvements tell the track owners and NHRA

Joe Sway was Part owner of Atco for years, he then sold his share and managed the track for a few years then was let go. He then went on to manage Maple Grove, I think 2016 and 2017 until his passing

Yeah, they finally got rid of the obnoxious bathroom attendants! And on a more positive note, the event was well-run, on-time, with better organized parking. Nice job all around.

If Bader was hired recently and wants to make capital improvements, it will be awhile before that can happen. I live in this area, and the design, permitting and actual construction could take some time, especially when your talking about restroom facilities.

But, yes, the whole event seemed to be well organized.
