'I put 100 percent into everything I do'
Selinsgrove promoter Charlie Paige is worn out. But that doesn't mean he isn't going to honor his commitment. Paige stunned onlookers and fans opening day when he announced he wasn't going to renew his lease with the fair board and promote the Snyder County oval. It resonated like a piano falling down a flight of stairs.
It didn't help that there were only 14 360 Sprint Car entries in the pit area for the opener. Things got worse the following week after Paige pulled the plug on an Empire Super Sprint show 32 hours before it was scheduled to start. Gloom turned to doom. Rumors started to fly, and some drivers and fans had Paige bailing and the track closing its doors.
