There's going to be a "big announcement" Monday where one privy member of Germain already said "it's a good thing one circus went out of business to be replaced by another".
People are speculating it's going to be a big format change for the races as far as that maybe each race is going to be an All-Star type of format... Nothing for sure has come out yet, but we'll see.
NASCAR is practically unrecognizable today to what it was when I started paying attention to it eons ago. There are now only 4 drivers I'm a fan of (used to be double that) and even they are not enough of a draw for me to tune in to every race.
Would be great to see Dodge make a return (Pontiac too, but obviously that ain't happening ), and I've always been an advocate for NASCAR to have more flippin' road races!
I want more road races too. I can't remember the details but earlier today I read that no new tracks can be added to the schedule through 2020 because of some agreement, but that's why the Charlotte roadcourse is a loophole around that. Hopefully we see it at more venues too.
Here is a Twitter video showing a portion of the testing.
Man, if they run the Charlotte roval, they'll need to move the S/F line. No one is gonna lift on a flyer Q lap or coming to the checkers if it's close, and to navigate T1 you'd need to be braking well before the current S/F location...they're gonna pile into something if they don't move it.
