Fans give opinions on Nationals

Last fall, we wanted to see what was on the mind of the customers who joined us for the Toyo Tires NHRA Nationals. So we picked the minds of those who signed up for our e-mail updates.

We’d like to thank the 804 Toyo Tires NHRA Nationals attendees who returned the electronic survey to our office. The survey was emailed to over 3,400 ticket buyers after the Nationals and to have close to 25 percent return the survey was very impressive and deeply appreciated by our management team. Each survey was read by each of our team and we’ve made notes and have recommendations for improving our 2010 Toyo Tires NHRA Nationals, scheduled for Oct. 7-10.

We value and appreciate your input.
