Will the spectators show up this weekend? The indoor sports venues are hurting for spectators big time!


When everything is coming your way, your probably in the wrong lane.

Race fuel cures Coronavirus. Smile

People need to live their lives.

If we are going to die anyways,might as well go and smell the nitro.

I predict a packed crowd,but of course,I could be wrong.

We're a sovereign and wealthy republic as our founders intended. We'll seal off our borders and keep on manufacturing our own goods and services for our economy, unaffected by corona virus.

Did you hear "sky is falling" in the post? Nope, just thinking out loud. If I didn't live on the left coast I would be there.

I'm currently running low on food stuffs, so it will be time to venture to the store soon. I've kinda been wondering if there was going to be noticeable shortages. I don't go in Walmart often but had an opportunity to go this morning. The food store portion was maxed out, to include produce. So for now there isn't a sign of shortages.

I found it interesting today to see Wal-Mart stock up most of the day while the Dow was falling over 2,000 points.

80% of the stuff at Wal-Mart comes from China.Very interesting.

Last week I had to go to COSTCO and they were cleaned out of what I needed. Yesterday I made my every 2 week grocery run and found everything well stocked down here in the country. Guess its like Chris said

I believe the only reason the sportsman racers were still racing is because many of them have already been there for the past week and a half. Once the Governor advised closure of all events with more than a certain number of spectators in attendance the decision was made. The pro teams already have rigs on property but I am sure that not all the team members or drivers were there yet. This will be interesting to see how it all pans out as this progresses. We have been included in some of the communications due to our work and some of these precautions are needed for the safety of those who could be most affected. YES most of AMERICA will survive this, but in an effort to help save some of the lives of those most prone to a negative outcome and how easily this is spreading, measures need to be taken. Sometimes we may think they are a bit extreme, but WE do not have all the information, and this is still evolving. We do hope that it turns out to be nothing but a major inconvenience, but in the event it does not, I am sure we all want everything possible done for our protection.
