I have been around the track a few times with all 3 of the "major" track day orgs. They all have great people around them. Each has something that the other orgs are lacking and each org has its weaknesses. Yes, track day organizations are businesses . Yes they must have positive cash flow. But when it comes down to it, no matter what org it is (Ride Smart, TTD, LSTD, Buck, etc....), they are all about getting riders to the track and helping them improve thier skills and have a good time, no matter what level rider they are. My hat is off to ALL of the orgs and I will continue to support ALL of them, as long as I have the money, time and health to do so.
I did my first track day with TTD and had a blast. I wish M&M the best. I hope that they take this time to get everything they need to in order and come back next year (or whenever) with a solid organization in hand. If/when that happens, I will be there doing track days with them again.
Until then, AUGUST 8th @TWS (Texas World Speedway), HERE I COME!!!!!

I think you can still get 20% off at that auto repair shop that came with the membership.

Just seeing if they were around a long time or for a short stint.

The real question is WHY do YALL care if people beat this dead horse? I mean really, who give a rats . No problem around here beating up on "accused" thieves...but when people wanna beat up on "real" thieves people get mad.

well you've been around for long enough to have seen them come and go...pretty much.

If you're not affected stay out of it IMO.

It's been brought up long enough and now it serves no purpose in any way shape or form. People should do their own thing and stop worrying about stuff that doesn't affect them in the least bit.

Should I bring up the riding in the sleet, over crowded events, and so other issues that Ride Smart has had in the past? NO bc it doesn't help the community it just makes us sound like little children. would you want to be associated with such types of people?

Im new to the track scene bro. I've only been involved with it for a couple of months. Thats why I was asking the question. I wanted to get the History. Im sorry if you takes offense to it. I don't know why you would though.
