Good. It's such a hassle for residents who live near the race route. And I'm not convinced it brings in a whole lot of extra revenue. It may give downtown restaurants a quick one day lunch boost. But I don't think people come in from out of town and stay in hotels, eat multiple meals, and go shopping for a glimpse of a 20 minute race.
