John S. now it is my dream.
Well, as my Wifie says. "I like to have my cake and eat it too."
Guys, I am not sure about you but I have to many races to attend and not enough weekends. Occasionally it might be nice to also watch a race, be it dirt oval, IRL, Rolex, F-1.
Right now there are to many nice tracks in our part of the World to just spend a weekend racing in a parking lot. IMO We need to support these groups that built these tracks and attend races at them. It is a lot of time and money to put a track up and going.
Just think about it, you have nice perment tracks in Kansas City; Lincoln, NE; St. Louis; Joliet, IL; Cincinatti; Toledo; Hamilton, Ont; and DC. And about 21 weeks of Good weather to visit these track.
Also, as above if we are going to run in a parking lot. Let's make it something special. Such as a real car event. This is not a new idea, just one we should work harder on. IMO
For the last 5 to 6 years I have asked the Mentor group to try to have an event down on the lake during the Cleveland Grand Prix. Unfortunately if has never happened. There maybe only limited asphalt available, who knows. Mid-Ohio has that issue.
But, There is plenty of good parking lot at the Wis. State Fairgrounds. At Indy, during the F-1, I am sure we could find a spot around the Speedway. Probably not for IRL or Napcar.
Format for these events could be 3 to 4 rounds of qualifying of Sat. and Mains on Sunday morning. Then we could put on a show for Sunday morning as Fans come to the race. Also, we would be able to attend or if you were not interested, take a nice Sunday drive home.
Anyway, Let's keep this in mind for next year and start working on it now.
Hopefully John S. and David Lee could see what could be done around Indy and the CheeseHeads could start to check in Milwaukee. We know Milwaukee was interested after what they saw at Homestead, FL in March.
