    Hate it that the Lucas Oil series and the WoO series are not coming back in 2013. We go to PA. or MD. about once a month, and living in Chester, VA, VMS is our home track. We have attended almost every Super Late Model event there since Billy bought it. Looking at the stands during the Commonwealth 100, I can understand your decision. I wish I could tell you how to get the fans there. 200 miles north you would have to turn people away….never understood that.
