I am just a bit confused on this one? isn't and wasn't ernie a qma hall of famer and advocate? why should a non-sanctioned club compete and be able to host what they don't support or advocate any longer? that race would just prove that a USAC track supports QMA past members and the organization? besides, Pomona had the tradition, now there is another club that has stepped up to continue, THE QMA tradition of this race? Since OSQMRC decided to leave QMA, why would they not rename the race? Maybe a Robbie Stanley Record Race? or other long standing USAC member/hall of famer? As for the real race, since he was QMA...........??
