Trucks to Road America AND Mosport in 2013?

Post by pennst24 on Sun Mar 11, 2012 10:39 am

Trucks to Road America in 2013? Canadian track also hoping to be in the mix: NASCAR is expected to announce soon that the Camping World Truck Series will return to road-course racing in the 2013 season and that is great news for Canada's Canadian Tire Motorsports Park. A source close to Camping World loop told the Toronto Sun that negotiations are all but complete to add a race at Road America in Elkhart Lake, Wis., for next season. That same source also said NASCAR would most certainly add a second road course so that it would make economic sense for the truck teams. "Teams would have to construct purpose built trucks for Road America so to keep those costs in line a second race just makes sense." A truck race at CTMS--formerly Mosport--would be a prefect fit for the track's new owners. Ron Fellows--and his partners Alan Boughton and Carlo Fidani--have been actively pursuing a top NASCAR touring series race. "I was on the phone June 1 (the day the group announced it had purchased the legendary Ontario track) with NASCAR officials telling them we wanted a race," Fellows said in a phone interview from Toronto. "And we are continuing to seek a race at Canadian Tire Motorsports Park." It will be at least mid to late summer before NASCAR bosses release their 2013 schedules but it is now a good bet that there will be two truck races turning left and right next season. Fellows said that the addition of Canadian Tire--a major NASCAR partner--as the name sponsor at CTMS will boost the track chances at getting the nod for a race.(TorontoSun.com)(3-11-2012)

If this happens, I will honestly jump for joy. The trucks haven't raced on a road course for too damn long now.

Day = Made! Very Happy

This would be great for NASCAR, but I wonder how many truck drivers would completely fail. The race could very well shake up the championship.

I could be one of them under 15, but I'll be that age in exactly 14 days.

Well, I still want Trucks at The Glen, but Road America will do, cause everyone will show their inner fail.

Good news: Trucks at Road America and Mosport

Bad news: Sprint Cup NOT at Road America and Mosport

Let's get to work on that second one NASCAR.

Awesome news if this becomes true. Unfortunately as usual, the Cup series is apparently too good for at least one more road course so they'll never change that up. At least grow some balls and hold the road course races on the longer configurations just like before.

When do NASCAR drivers not fail at Road Courses these days? After Looking at some of the older races way before now, Cup drivers were far more skilled and it was more of a race and less of a damn Caution fest.

Instead of Adam Alexander reading a shot sheet during the highlights packages for both races on Speed Center, the viewer will simply see the highlights set to this:

If Foxtel in Queensland is anything like Foxtel is in South Australia then you have to pay so much extra just to get any good channels.

I think it's the same price in all states. Anyway, back to subject.
