Why we won’t be returning to Autoclub Speedway ever again.
Gillian, past president of the Speedway, listened to the concerns of the fans and responded immediately to any constructive criticism or complaints. Dave, the new president for the last 3 years, does not.
Every year that he has been president there has been been a noticeable decline in how the track is managed. Less venders, awful entertainment, poor customer service, staff that have obviously not been trained in the basics. Ask anyone a question and the answer will ALWAYS be “Ummmm, I not sure.” Without fail.
I’m pretty sure they didn’t sell out this year as they have in the past.
The fan zone entertainment has helped to overcome the boring races but this year there really wasn’t anything to do. The races were boring, the fan zone was boring. There were only a few driver’s merchandise trailers. So much less to do and so much less to look at:-(
The Monster Energy race began with 3 paratroopers (?) parachuting in with the flag but the announcers totally missed the event while they played taped interviews:-(
One of the vendors was giving away cigars but no one was policing the people smoking them deep in crowds of children.
The food was selection was dismal.
The band, Paradise City, really should have auditioned for the venue as they were awful.
The Dockdogs would have been entertaining had there been more dogs.
We didn’t even know the motocross was going on.
The garage tour was beyond a waste of time. Couldn’t hear anything that was said and they no longer allow you to try to get autographs for even wave to drivers.
It was just a sad and disappointing 3 days.
I think we’re going to make Phoenix our home track from now on. It’s only a few more miles and they seem to care a lot more about their fans experiences.
