    I think the only Chicago area track that does NOT want to participate is Dad's Raceway in DesPlaines..and they do not participate in any series or run regular races. Their original (design) Orange track is more than functional for retro racing as well as the oval.
    The other area track is C & R Raceway in Bradley, just South of I-80 and Chicago...it is in transition of owners now.

    Lake Barrington also has an OVAL...Retro Nascar is possible.

    Ya'll come to Mikes this Saturday for the POW WOW and afternoon of racing retro on the King. Everyone remember to bring the schedule conflicts. This is a warm-up race for the SANO V.

    Many of our retro racers like to attend the 1/1 retro races at Road America and the Midwest slot car Swap meets in Indiana (on 20 Nov) this fall.

    I assume the IRRL 2011-2012 schedule has been finalized. Would someone please post it here or post a link to the thread?

    Thank you.

    No, it has not.

    The only date set is the Sept.25 date at Chicagoland.

    We will be skipping Oct. for the Sano.

    The season will resume in November.

    Once I check the adjacent MRRA and ORS Retro series schedules and USRA Div. II dates, I'll come up with the 5 remaining (weekend) dates.

    As discussed at the IRRL meeting, Mid-America will get the 2nd & 5th pick, Lake Barrington, the 3rd & 4th,
    and Chicagoland will get the remaining date.

    It is time to identify the best dates and tracks for the new season. We just finished the August Sano 6 warm-up and I believe that Mike is penciled in for a September warm-up as well. Since the Sano is in early October, there has been some racer discussion about a mid October series race as well. AND ADDING Northern Indiana Tracks to the series. I would support both these ideas, especially if a car-pool worked for out of state races. Any discussion???
