The adrl comes to houston in march..there has been no advertising, media, tv, radio, free tix info, in the city yet....they must think everyone will know about the race and just show up...this will not be a good race for them in this market.

I hate to see Tommy D’Aprile without a ride and that will be a loss, but there are so many new pro extreme cars that have been built that no one will notice except fans of Tommy's.

The 2011 season will be a real test for ADRL. It's going to be a make or break year for them.

It will be interesting to see how the season progresses. With Kenny no longer running the show there are bound to be some differences.

But a make or break year i doubt. KH and Al-Anabi have pumped plenty of money into this thing and the same people (less Kenny) are still around.

There are a lot of new cars that have been built specifically to run ADRL.

What makes you think it's a make or break year?

There seems to be an equal amount of teams pulling out of that series as there are new cars.

KH and dump all the money in he wants but it doesn't mean high car counts or big crowds.

I suppose it won't necissarily be make or break.... KH has plenty of money to run the deal on his own dime if he doesn't care if it draws big crowds.... IF by chance the big crowds go away.

Wow, the end is near. I must have overlooked all these teams pulling out. Could you name some of the teams that are leaving the ADRL?

there are several teams that have said that there is a good possibility that they wont be running the ADRL schedule this year. Mel Bush just shut both of his teams down for the year, Steve Vick is undecided, there are several more.
