Sorry, but you will just have to make do in better, more expensive seats until then. 
I paid for cheap seats, and currently sitting in the first row.

That’s normal for all sx races I’ve been too. Open seating until an hour before the race.

You've been on Vital for 14 years and your first ever post is to bitch about not getting to your seat 2 hours early?

How was the crowd size in person? It looked like there were a lot of empty seats on the tv broadcast. East/West round and points tied in the 450’s,

I would have expected a massive crowd

I was honestly surprised how little cheers jett got on the podium. I am also surprised eli got more cheers than jett.

Yeah but then they won't want "dirt" bikes in their shiny new stadium just like the assholes at Vegas 😒

Crowd was not impressive.... same stadium issues as every round.... long lines for concessions and gates only opening an hour before gate drop when nearly all fans are standing there waiting to get in from fan fest is huge bottle neck. Floor seems small. If forkner had his crash here I think he lands in the seats. Plenty of room for pits right next to stadium is nice.

Our first time there this year. I enjoyed the stadium. We were lower level about 8 rows up. 
 

Nashville is a nice place to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there. We were downtown earlier in the morning and met Brayton Carroll. He’s a very nice young man and spent some time talking with me.

I don’t know if the stadium sucks, but it may be built on top of a hidden Indian burial ground after all the crashes and injuries in the past two years.

I thought it was a pretty good sized crowd, parking was way more then I've paid other places, fan fest was nice and wide open, lines were long on the first floor,  but in the second level it was club style service with short short lines for the food and restrooms.

Club seating for the win. Yes, it's more expensive but it's worth it to me.

It’s my home race and it’s not organized at all. We had our Monster cans and got our hand stamped. Walked around the pits and then right into the stadium. No one checked our tickets at all. We could have walked in with a Monster can for admission. There were plenty of empty seats we could have sat it. My friend got comped a suit and that was the only time we had to show our tickets.

Stadiums should advertise the open seating until like almost race time. The first year I went (2004) I remember bitching and groaning about the upper levels being closed. At every stadium I have been to you can sit anywhere in the lowers and watch practice or just to rest.

Occasionally you will end up in someone's seat that you are actually sitting in. Just move over a few seats. Then when it's time they will open the upper levels and you can go to your assigned seats.

I don’t think anyone got any. Usually you can tell something has happened off camera but one of the first times I heard nothing the entire night from the crowd

View from the Dunlop suite. Crowd looked way smaller than last year. Rooms within walking distance were $400-$600 range. I think ticket and room price played a role this year. Traffic control after the race is terrible.

If you didn’t hear the crowd when Tomac was leading you weren’t there.

Helen Keller would of heard that.

Was that photo taken during the night show?  If so, yikes!  That is a pretty pathetic crowd, especially considering how close all the points are.

Only thing I hate about the track, is the amount of rider injuries occurring there.

I thought the track raced pretty well. The long sand section with multiple lines, the jump leading to the whoops, different options in the rhythm section made for great battles.

I thought it was a nice venue.

 

My only complaint were the restroom lines and concession prices. 30 minutes to pee then its $32 for a coke and a hotdog lol

The concessions were terrible, I get they probably had staffing issues because this was a one off event in the middle of the football offseason but my girlfriend waited in line for over an hour at one of them and they ran out of the food she wanted. They also had one of the workers up and quit and that caused one person to run one register for two lines making it even slower. I also stood in line at one of the beer carts for 15-20 minutes and got to the front and then the vendors card reader system went down so I was SOL there thanks to the cashless venue policy, so I got in another lengthy line and by the time I got to the front they ran out of the beer I wanted so I had to settle for a beer I didn't want. Nashville was an awesome time, the hotels, stadium and broadway all being in walking distance was great. The pit setup and race was also great. It just seemed the stadium amenities were extremely lacking and ill prepared.

Well let’s try this:

Watch the tv broadcast. Rv and Weege both referenced the crowd noise when Tomac was leading.

Now if you weren’t here, and didn’t watch the broadcast, or have the sound on but referenced the lack of crowd noise, I’m not sure where your going with this,
