Loudon
Dover

Fontana
Charlotte

What's you ideal schedule for the chase. Which of these tracks makes the grade and which should be tossed aside and replaced?

Of the current tracks I like...

Dover
Charlotte (mainly because I think this track just belongs in the chase)
Martinsville
Phoenix

I'd like to see...

Bristol
A road course (don't know which one...maybe the Canadian one if possible)
ORP
Richmond
Darlington

And I would end it in Las Vegas. Although I might end it in Charlotte.

That's my thoughts as of NOW. :p

The Bristol, night, chase race sounds excellent.

ORP sounds great too! Only holds 30,000 though. They better increase that seating capacity.

Richmond the same thing before last week. I changed my mind on that one. That 26th race is a great race and I can't think of a better place to hold it.

Darlington chase race - Absofreakinlutly!

Oh, and, road course, yes. I'd like to see that one be in Daytona on the road course.

Darlington was in the chase for one season :shock:

I say start the chase off at Atlanta

Then to Richmond, Dover, Martinsville, Talladega, Texas, Phoenix, Charlotte, Homestead, Las Vegas.

I would take New England and Auto Club out of the chase. They don't need chase races, let alone ACS having two races.

No Road Course. Too cold for any of the three they go to. They would have to add Road Atlanta, but neither ISC or SMI own that track :worried:

Why limit it to one that they already go to? Use the same course @ Daytona that they use for the Rolex 24.

I was never all to excited about that Loudon track but yesterday changed my mind. I think that was mainly due to the double-file restarts though. However, even those, 'shootout-stlye', restarts can't fix Fontana IMO.

They need to blow that track up and put in a Richmond or Bristol type track.

I always thought the should raise the banking, change it to a figure eight, with an over-under bridge :)

Im just trying to find the bridge
Has anybody seen the bridge?
Please!
(have you seen the bridge? )
I aint seen the bridge!
(wheres that confounded bridge?

I don't know where it originates from but many of Led Zeppelin's songs are heavy into the 'blues' realm.
