This certainly looks interesting and exciting! Good structure to your series in such a short amount of time. Should become popular.

to be honest i've had this up my sleeve for several months, before you came back i tried to launch a DTM style race but i aborted that mission because of lack of interest, short time to advertise, people accusing others over cheating (false builds, etc.), and lack of time.

This will be a monday night event replacing the Bone Stock unless someone wants to run the bonestock on monday night still. The only other reason it wouldn't be on a Monday is if Oneshot or Dale runs a stock car race on mondays - if that were the case I would definitely want to run in a stock car series full time Razz

sorry to the few people who downloaded the cars from my storefront i've rebuilt most of them and am almost completed. I am taking Don's advice on this one so I will have them open for testing in the next few days. If anyone has bought the older builds tell me and i will send you an open build for free aslong as you promise not to tune it in any way shape or form.

Kansas Speedway Road Circuit Passes Opening Test
Lesa France Kennedy, NASCAR vice chairwoman and executive vice president, joins Pat Warren, Kansas Speedway president; Peter Carlino, chairman and CEO of Penn National Gaming; and Jeff Boerger, president of the Kansas Speedway Development Corporation, at a ribbon-cutting to kick off the inaugural laps run on Kansas Speedway's new infield road course.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Three GRAND-AM Road Racing teams gave the new Kansas Speedway road course high marks following Wednesday’s first test of the new 2.36-mile circuit, preparing for a prospective race event in 2013.

“The layout is quite simple, but it’s going to create a lot of racing opportunities,” said Joao Barbosa, who tested the No. 5 Action Express Racing Corvette Daytona Prototype that competes in Rolex Series Dp class. “This is going to be an interesting place to come and race. With so many things to do very close by, this has everything it takes to be a great race track.”

Joining Barbosa at the three-hour compatibility test were Bill Auberlen, driving the No. 94 Turner Motorsport BMW M3 from the Rolex Series GT class, and Ryan Ellis, in the No. 30 i-MOTO Mazda Speed 3 that competes in the Street Tuner division of the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge.

“This is a great place to race,” said Mark Raffauf, GRAND-AM managing director of racing operations. “Having looked at a road course at Kansas Speedway for several years, we found it very nicely done. It’s fast and also has a lot of room.”

The circuit includes six turns in the infield in addition to most of the 1.5-mile progressively banked oval.

“It’s way tougher than it looks,” Auberlen said. “You’re going to have to fight for every pass. There will be a lot of bumping and banging. Having 70-plus cars in the Continental Tire Sports Car Challenge is going to be crazy.”

Despite running on a "green" race track – with the infield portion used for the first time – all three GRAND-AM drivers said the track “rubbered in” very nicely.

“I was able to consistently run fast times the whole time I was out there,” Ellis said. “I was going just as fast – if not a little faster – at the end of my longest run as I was at the beginning. I think this will be one of the most exciting races to watch.”

Peter Carlino, chairman and CEO of Penn National Gaming which partners with Kansas Speedway/International Speedway Corporation in the Hollywood Casino at the speedway, took the first laps around the circuit in the Extreme Speed Motorsports-prepared Ferrari 458 that he races in the Ferrari Challenge.

“This is something I’ve been looking forward to for a long time,” Carlino said. “This is a beautiful course. I think it’s going to be a racer’s course. It’s very, very fast, with very wide turns. There’s a lot of room not to get in trouble.”

Prior to Carlino’s run, he participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony for members of the Kansas City media. Joining him were Lesa France Kennedy, NASCAR vice chairwoman and executive vice president; Pat Warren, Kansas Speedway president; and Jeff Boerger, president of the Kansas Speedway Development Corporation.

The off season is already finishing at a rapid pace. It's no surprise that with all the speculation of what 2013 holds that it is flying bye with a blur of anticipation. As everyone is well aware Myself, GTDon, and Oneshot have our events well into the final stages of development - Tomcat and Dale are both kicking around the idea of Stock Car racing, ABE has been looking at different formats and testing has become a household daily term around the league.

I just wanted to say keep up the good work boys! In a couple of weeks we will get to see the fruits of our labor pay off and have another great year of IFCA racing!
