I wonder if Red Bull is putting less money into the series? They changed all of their social media accounts to GRCSeries from RedBullGRC. Seems like an odd thing to do.This is a terrible schedule. Daytona, DC and Jacksonville (NC) all off? No races in Texas or the Southeast at all?
They might as well just race in LA, Boston, Indianapolis and Seattle next year.
The New River race was only for military too. Which is a shame, there are A LOT of race fans out that way. Carteret County Speedway packs them in every race they have. Maybe GRC should have run there.I wonder if Red Bull is putting less money into the series? They changed all of their social media accounts to GRCSeries from RedBullGRC.

Some events like DC and and New River, i'm sure are quite expensive to put together, and the race in NC, they didn't even charge admission for fans to attend.
Doesn't seem like they could be profitable for the series.
I prefer their races in the temporary parking lot circuits like DC and Las Vegas, but i'm sure it has gotta be a lot cheaper to put on races at short tracks like Evergreen and Thompson...
The schedule isn't perfect, but when they only have 8 race weekends in a year, they can't make everyone happy...
It's time for some purpose-built North American RX tracks.
The European tracks are so rad. I know of several perfect pieces of land. Can anyone give me a small loan of like 20mil?
I see that LA will only be one round this year. I went on Saturday last year and the crowd was decent.
Not true actually. The first year it was open to the public. Second year was a double header, first day was military only, day 2 was open to the public. Although day 2 ended up getting rained out. I think it is BS to have a big race like that not open to the general public though... Charge admission and give all the money to a charity for injured vets or something...The New River race was only for military too.
Me too, I went to the final 2 races they had at the Linq and across from the Luxor. Those were awesome events! Anything is a good excuse to go to Vegas anyway.Wish they'd go back to Vegas during SEMA.
same thing is going to happen on a micro scale in the playoffs. Driver wins the first race and has a lock for the second round. Probably won't push very hard. Talk about a lop sided manufacturer race in GRC The bugs have won almost every race. Quiet as it is kept in the U.S., Volkswagen is the number 2 manufacturer in the world behind Renault/Nissan.Everyone who complains about the chase in Nascar should listen to Scott Speed's description of his racing strategy for the final one-third of the season, and then tell me why they like it. Don't race anyone, don't even get close to anyone, and don't even think of winning. Just cruise and collect. Bleh!! I don't blame Speed. I blame the system. (It was exactly the same when Chris Buescher won his Xfinity title in 2015... "I'm racing like I'm in a bubble.")
