Funny you should say this. We have a series on the offroad side in region 2 and it has grown well over the last 6 years. I agree tracks do not want to work together after managing this series and it takes a 3rd party to establish in most cases. It's all about making a living for most tracks and hobby shops. Ironically, if you go over to the racing forum and read about the elections for Region 2 there are plenty of ideas where people want to remove the series. Mostly for a host of expense related reasons. See here:http://www.rctech.net/forum/racing-f...-2-voting.html
