No, but 3/4 of them are tracks they went to before and all of them are waaaay up north (Wisconsin, Vermont, Connecticut, Michigan). I mean, we all know SRX isn't a serious racing series and that they are going around doing midweek exhibitions, so the idea of them running different tracks more frequently feels like part of the appeal for me as a viewer.Are those terrible tracks or something?
I'm guessing it all comes down to one thing $$$Berlin was maybe the best event yet and Thunder Road is good to see confirmed back after getting cancelled for the flooding issues. But it kinda rings hollow when they boast about ~50 tracks trying to get in on hosting this thing and wind up repeating venues every other year or, in Stafford’s case, every year.
Stafford is a rarity in that it's a non-Cup track with SAFER and a lot of seating. I'm sure that's a big part of it. And SRX started as a timebuy on CBS, so I don't know why that ESPN would be a consideration in Years 1 & 2.Stafford-5
15 tracks out of 24 potential races with 2 of 2024's unknown. Stafford obviously got the flooded out race last year but what about every other year...how much of that has to do with ESPN being based in Connecticut.
