I was hoping Topeka would survive as well.  Not to mention, we were scheduled for Brainerd this year in hopes to run it before it potentially changed hands and it is not on the list either.

NCM back on the list is nice and we may run it again now that we have a more suitable for the track.

Re: Annual "Schedule is out, but my race isn't on it" thread

Nothing at The Ridge in Washington. With all the improvements going on there, I was looking forward to a weekend there.

Glad both Colorado races are back again.

No CMP at all.  CMP has been on the schedule every year since the 1st CMP race...

Not that our team doesn't want to try other tracks, but CMP is the closest and only track we've raced so far in our 4 years of Lemons.  And they just repaved!

Southern Comfort has historically been CMP, but is does say "TBD" on the schedule, which could mean is could still be CMP. 

It would be a shame to loose CMP after they FINALLY repaved the damn thing.  Of course my timing sucked, I got Covid and had to miss it the 24 on the new surface.  sad

If they wanted to move it to VIR, now we'd all be OK with that I'd imagine.

Chalk me up as another "where the f**k is CMP?"

The south fall race has been my favorite part of the schedule since 2010. I have to assume the rental fee went up since the repave, but not making the trip to Camden in September gives me the sads sad

Re: Annual "Schedule is out, but my race isn't on it" thread

There's no conspiracy here. People are saying 200+ treadwear tires rip up new asphalt, so they're waiting for the tracks to be completely cured and de-stressed by race series' which use lower treadwear tires before Lemons races there. I hear lots of people are saying it - it's not a hoax.

I asked on Facebook Therapy Thursday and their response was there will be a 24 hour race.  They did not say where.

Re: Annual "Schedule is out, but my race isn't on it" thread

Ooh Oregon Raceway Park!

I do hope The Ridge makes a comeback but I'm very excited to see another venue within 1000 miles of me!  I'm still looking at 2022 at the earliest  and 2023 more realistically, so hopefully by then both tracks will become a regular thing.

Cheers!

Re: Annual "Schedule is out, but my race isn't on it" thread

Past years the 24hour race was not on the initial schedule every time, then got added once details were finalized. I expect the same this time.

Yup. Once Lemons has the track for the weekend, the format for the weekend can always be negotiated later.

The big issue is being able to crew up the stations and emergency overnight. All those people have to agree to ruin their sleep schedule for it.

Ain’t that a kick in the head. Last year, I was somewhat comforted by the idea that nobody got to race Lemons at Willow, so it wasn’t just my lament, but I kinda figured we’d have another chance. Losing Inde just sucks. I hope the new pavement is less tire-destroying, but I’m not going to become a member there just to find out.

Mid-Ohio is incompatible with Lemons. They just don't like how we do things. Their loss really.

My understanding is that booking Willow was just sorta a "FU" message to Sonoma for not being communicative about open Spring 2020 dates by the time HQ needed to lock things down. Not surprised at all that it's not on the calendar for 2021.


With Jay himself having to work Inde in Feb 2020, I'm also not surprised it isn't back on the calendar for 2021. "It's a barely-break-even race AND I have to work it? Screw THAT!"

I think the only reason Buttonwillow is on the schedule is because it turns a good profit. If they could avoid having to go to that track and make the same money elsewhere, I'm pretty sure they would.
