No Trucks at Road America in 2012

Post by AntmanB on Fri Nov 04, 2011 11:22 pm

UPDATE 2: The all-but-done deal to bring the Camping World Truck Series to Road America next season is done, but not in that way. Done, as in over. NASCAR and the track had hoped to package the truck race with the Nationwide Series and Grand Am on the weekend of June 23-24. The hangup? TV. Because of other commitments by NASCAR's television partners, a truck race couldn't be scheduled for that Sunday, Bruggenthies said. Grand Am and Nationwide are committed for Saturday. The other option was Friday, but to run an afternoon race on a traditional work day would not have made sense economically. Although the trucks often race on Fridays, those are nighttime events at tracks with lights. "We're all disappointed," Bruggenthies [track President] said. "You know what? We'll make it happen in the future. We're going to run a couple national NASCAR events on the same weekend in the future. I'm confident of it."(JournalSentinal.com)(11-3-2011)

Theroredically they could have still ran the race and shown it at a later time in the evening, but with something like this, I can see why they didnt.
