    I keep praying that NASCAR schedules an event at COTA.

      Shrinking motorsports market, student loan debt, cost of living, shrinking dollar. And we have an economy that is starting to deteriorate. That does not help sell tickets to overpriced, undervalued entertainment. Even Panzer's Cheetos budget is seeing refinements. Disposable income is shrinking for most people.

      I refuse to give up the big bag !

        From the looks of the crowd it's like the old days at IMS- Someone will gladly take your place. Disposable income is only shrinking for the lower classes and I do not include autoworkers in that group.

          For RP's sake i hope so. They already have taken mine. Autoworkers are becoming an endangered species. The Terminator movies showed us that. Rise of the machines!

              I'd keep praying. But it would be entertaining for sure.

                    Lots of things. Ignorance, for one. Then there's ego, the desperate desire to look knowledgable and/or clever, poor judgement, and, at the risk of being redundant, ignorance.

                        Who, exactly, took yours? The autoworkers?

                        They are? How many are left? Do you have some data to backup? And over what period of time are you saying they have become an endangered species?

                        Wow. That's pathetically lame. Those were movies! Do you not understand the difference between reality and cinema?

                          Apparently you did not thing this through. How can something be "overpriced" and "undervalued" at the same time?

                          As well you should. It could be your best, and last, friend.

                            It's "you're." Which goes back to what I was saying about ignorance.

                              Meanwhile, back on topic....

                              Stephan Ratel's SRO World Challenge has added COTA back to the 2020 schedule in March (by request of their team owners/drivers). The IMS round will now be an 'optional' event.

                              And due to difficulties with the planned Brazilian round, even WEC is reconsidering COTA.

                                How nice. Yet you still have not answered the question. As for ignorance...you certainly show yours rather well.
