WHAT ABOUT THE LITTLE GUY? SPORTING NEWS' Bob Pockrass noted ISC recently announced plans to "decrease capacity" at several tracks, so "gone are the cheap seats." That "raises the big question: Will any cheap seats remain for the fans saving vacation money to make an annual pilgrimage to a racetrack?" For fans "clinging to every dollar to get to a race, that doesn’t sound like a good thing." ISC would be "foolish -- very foolish -- to price out the diehard working-class fan who supported the sport before all the big television deals, before all the money and glamour." Pockrass: "We'll watch your ticket prices. Don't price out the little guy" (SPORTINGNEWS.com, 7/9).
