AUTO RACING NOTEBOOK: Fernald hoping time switch helps draw cars, fans

By Bill Stewart

Unity Raceway opened about a month earlier compared to past years and even offered spectators a few promotions that would offset the cost of admission. Furthermore, track manager George Fernald, Jr. boosted the weekly payout in the Late Model class.

The results?

“We’re not getting the crowds or the car counts,” said Fernald, who leases the track from owner Ralph Nason. “It’s the economy, I’d say. I thought it would be better, but right now it seems to be worse.”

At its season opener April 21, the 52-lap Late Model feature drew 11 cars.

Last Saturday, only eight showed.

The track drew between 12 and 16 Late Models fairly regularly last season.
