Good morning everyone. Sorry I didn't get around posting this last night with all the other admin things I was doing, as I see a few guys have looked at the race threads and notice a hot topic that's already been going on between the organizers.

So our finale this year/season is Nashville Fairgrounds. That race was also the finale last year. To be quite frank, short tracks are a black eye for this league. I wish it wasn't, I wish guys had better race craft and didn't push their equipment too hard to cause spins and contacts, but I can't remember the last time that we got all the lapse in and did not hit the timer at a short track due to an excess amount of cautions. Season 3 was the perfect example as well, we averaged under 3 cautious per race, yet the one short track race we did, we had a dozen.

There is a clause in the Rule saying that management team has the right to review the schedule, a clause that we have not used on on but oval side since I took over many years ago, but I am willing to put up a discussion for this race. The organizer vote was split, so now I'm bringing the vote to the entire roster. We're only gonna have two options for this vote. Looking at iRacing schedule for Weeks 11 and 12, I'm going to take Richmond out of the mix since that is another track that has not been good for the league in the past, and that leaves Auto Club Chicagoland. So the vote will be to stay as is and race Nashville Fairgrounds, or skip ahead and we will race Auto Club Chicagoland before the official series does. Feel free to discuss.

So the fact that I even made this post should tell you that my vote is for Auto Club Chicagoland. Even last year when this race was the finale and we only had 24 drivers show up, we still had 11 cautions, yet thankfully the Championship 4 were not involved somehow. My vote is to save us from ourselves and not have a 3rd short track on the schedule. We're already opening up with Bristol, and we're gonna go to Martinsville halfway through the season as well. I didn't want to make it a track that wasn't on the official schedule for the sake of fairness for people building sets and at least it's something that can use for officials a week later.

The official iRacing schedule says Chicagoland, not Autoclub

Well caught Patrick. I pulled pulled the .pdf to confirm and it looks like someone mistakenly posted the Next Gen schedule instead of the Gen6 (current gen) schedule on the tracker we build the schedule off of (I blame roadies). Next Gen has AC, Gen6 is Chicago. I will edit the information above accordingly. My vote for a change still stand (damnit, I miss AC).

For everyone, even if you don't leave a comment, please use the poll in my original post to vote on what track you'd prefer. I'd like to get this finalized asap so we can update threads and flyers and make sure this is all squared away in advance. 22 votes for 1 track is an automatic majority.

Auto Club is no longer an option gents. Chicagoland is the option if we wish to move away from Nashville FG.

Well I'll be a ROOKIE this season. So I have no real skin in the game. Both Tracks are fine with me as Nashville kinda races like a bigger track. As a change will effect those in the top ten in points and not me so much. I'll leave the voting to the big dogs.

CM, there are 2 Nashville tracks, SuperSpeedway (1.3 miles) and Fairgrounds (.4 mile). This vote is because of Fairgrounds.

Yes I realize this, but I have not raced on the Super Speedway yet. But there seems to be two groves at the Fairgrounds. Mid to high and the bottom and while the higher groove has a momentum advantage passing can be done down low. For a short track there seems to be more room to race than at most other short tracks. But hey I like Chicago and the fairgrounds so I'm happy with both. It's the first race that worries me. It's like Daytona on fast forward.
