  • OT - What Racing Series Has You Attended ?

    A lot of the conversations around here hhave people touting one series as superior to another and so on. I for one am of the school that good racing is good racing regardless of series, so I thought it would be interesting to see exactly what series people who haunt this board have actually attended races for. Here are mine:

    Midgets - ARDC, USAC
    Sprint Cars - USAC, WOO, CRA, URC
    Silver Crown - USAC
    Modifieds - DIRT, NASCAR
    Indy Cars - USAC, IRL, CART
    Stock Cars - NASCAR (WC & BGN), ARCA
    Road Racing - Can Am, IMSA, Trans Am

    and of course a bunch of local track events but that is for another thread on what tracks you have attended.

    Is it May yet ?

                  The Pig races at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo are better than the ones at your State Fair any day!

                        To save time, I will post what I saw last year.

                        Was supposed to see NAMARS midgets at Speedrome but got rained out (carb day)

                        This year will be

                        IRL at INDY
                        USAC midgets at IRP (nite before 500)
                        IRL at MIS
                        Nascar Trucks at MIS
                        IRL support series (i hope) at MIS
                        NAMARS midgets at Speedrome

                        possibly IRL at Chicago.
