You can't put on a big money race if all the big money drivers are elsewhere.Race XR, the company that broadcast the Eldora dirt races this year, along with the races at Texas and Vegas, has announced a much expanded 2022 schedule they are calling the "XR Super Series." Notable to me are the payouts and the scheduling on top of next year's Dream at Eldora.
I'm hearing comparisons to the NDRL, which tried something similar some years back and if I remember correctly, folded while in its first full year.
In response(?) Eldora put out a cryptic tweet hinting a possible return of the real million (I don't count the race at Mansfield as a real million race.) It has all provided some fun speculation as the year winds down.
I don't know. There is talk quite a few drivers may opt to do their own schedule like Brandon Overton is doing. When you have 8 races that pay $25,000 to win each and a $100k points champion at Bristol, that's some big money to win just in the first 3 months of the year. But them scheduling against Eldora is stupid.
Like I get it is a motor thing for the most part, but I understand the differences not at all. I can at least tell the speed difference between a 305 and 410 sprint car.Lucas Oil on MavTV right now...well they have about 15 classes of "Late Model" looking cars. 39 SLM. 40+ 602 Crates. Bunch of ?????? that look same as all the others. Gonna be a LONG night. Hunt The Front is representing the poor boys against the high-dollar guys.
