Who all likes or dislikes the new schedule? Will the Void issue still play into things where attendence is concerned?
How badly did your local tracks suffer last year from the covid limitations?

I'm excited for the new schedule. Especially with Nashville being added to the schedule along with the road course additions of COTA and Road America on the 4th.


Hopefully COVID wont effect the schedule much more than it already has. We had tickets for Watkins Glen (my home track) last season which was cancelled. We rolled our tickets over to this year. Fingers crossed it happens.

Chase Elliot's 24 Hours of Daytona Cadillac team is on the pole (for their class) for the race this weekend. Jimmy Johnson's team starts sixth.

Best I can tell.. The only races that would likely be affected would be California, which they've already killed IIRC and Sonoma.



Now, they may run the races with limited fans or even no fans.. But I think they run the schedule outside of those races as-is.

I wouldn't bet against him.. But.. I'd look more to Hendrick. I think it's looking like maybe Chase.



But, Denny has this habit of being able to stay out of trouble and be there at the end.. And when he's there at the end..
