        Races will air on six consecutive Saturday nights at 8 PM, ET on CBS Television Network and CBS All-Accessthroughout the Summer of 2021
        Good starting point for the series. The exact opposite of the nascar schedule where there is no consistency whatsoever.

          Probably. Knoxville (Trucks) and Nashville Fairgrounds (ARCA East) are gaining NASCAR-sanctioned touring races this season.
          Some fans claim one series or another runs "real race cars." What's everybody else running, fake race cars? :confused:

            Well this isn’t an old-timers series... so there’s that.

              I would imagine the "Balboa" car would be the odds on favorite for most races. Most of the full time drivers in the series either would not have raced on these types of tracks in a very long time or likely ever at all.

                The drivers dont even need a warm up lap on a short track.

                Kyle Busch showed up at South Boston, having never turned a lap there, just in time for qualifying at Denny Hamlins Short Track Showdown.

                Iwill say, Erik Jones raced the late model for KBM at SoBo for the first part of the season, prepping the car for Kyle.

                We were pushing through the tech line before qualifying, Jones was in line behind us, when a state police SUV pulls into the infield, and out steps. Rowdy. The state police drove him the 2 hrs from RIR. He goes straight into his 18 wheeler and gets on his firesuit.

                Having never been to the "Toughest Short Track in America",

                The sob cracks off two (2) laps and just misses the pole. He started 3rd.

                We were there for 2 years and never came close to that.

                It was cool as hell to witness. Days o Thunder moment.

                200 laps later, he couldn't keep the tires under him and locals ate his lunch at the end.

                  I know a lot of news has broken on the Xfinity front. I should have time Thursday to update the chart.

                  Oops! Thought I was in the silly season thread.

                              Does this series have actual cars being built?

                              I've seen renderings, but no word of tubing being bent/welded or body construction.

                                I don’t know if they have any being built or not, but I do know that the fans hated the front splitter so much that Evernham removed it.
