Thomas Pope: Efficiency, variety key as dirt track changes

Steve Core is operating under some basic guidelines in his first year as race director at Fayetteville Motor Sports Park’s dirt track:
1. “The word ‘can’t’ isn’t in my vocabulary. The word ‘why?’ is.”
2. If there’s not a problem, there’s no opportunity.
All achievements were once considered impossibilities.
Core, the track’s technical director the past two years, is trying to reverse a legacy of one-groove racing and shows that spill over into Sunday morning. Late-running events and infrequent passing have shrunk the track’s fan base over the years, but Core is hoping to win them back with efficiency and more on-track action.
