Since hanging up his
racing helmet and picking up a co-promoters hat, Doty
has learned that there is a completely different side of race nights when you look through the eyes of an event planner.
"I definitely see things from a different perspective as a promoter then I did as a driver," said Doty
"As a driver you tend to focus on what is best for you and your race team and not what is best for the sport in general.
As a promoter you want to have everything go perfectly and have a race that leaves the fans breathless!
Unfortunately things aren't always going to be perfect and not everyone is going to be happy, but for any event to be successful the racers, promoters and officials have to work together and there has to be some give and take by everyone for it to work."
With the 23rd edition of the Classic upcoming, Doty and his partners in the race, UNOH President Dr. Jeff Jarvis, and Track General Manager Bob Fricke are already looking towards the future of the event.
