We Asked And Our Readers Answered — Here Are The Reasons Why You Should Buy Central Track And Ensure It Keeps Serving The Dallas Community.

Let’s summarize that past few weeks.

On May 24, we officially announced that this publication is up for sale. But we weren’t going to just ask for buyers with no good reason, so we put our money (or lack thereof, lol) where our mouth is and gave you 100 examples of Central Track excellence. Then, to give you an idea of what kind of person we’d like to see take ownership of CT, we wrote up our dream list.

The next clear step of this saga was to hear from you, the readers — aka the reason why we’re even doing this whole thing in the first place — on why people should give a shit about this website. So we took to our socials and said, “tell us why you think Central Track is important and why someone should buy it.”

Below is the list of responses. Take them with all that they’re worth, because no one can honestly define CT better than the people who read it.

Thank you so much for reading, from the bottom of our hearts. And if this list moves you to want to purchase this website and keep it alive, email your inquiry to our founder at Pete [at] centraltrack [dot] com.
