    I'm not a lawyer, but it appears that the lawsuit was brought by certain members who are suing the individual board of directors ON BEHALF OF THE CMRA.

    As President, he is arguing that only HE or THE BOARD have the authority to hire any lawyers to represent the CMRA.

    It seems like all of these lawsuits, the first challenge is to see if the plaintiff has "standing" to sue. Looks like they are challenging that.

    Holy shit the egos involved here. On both sides. They'd run that club into destruction before doing the right thing.

    With the announcement of an immediately canceled BBE series and the cancellation of the NOLA round, I think that is exactly what has happened. They say its the weather but weather wasn't invented in 2018. Truly heartbreaking. I hope it turns out better than it looks.

    Having cancelled NOLA races and shut down an Endurance series - it's got nothing to do with lawsuits but everything to do with the books. Their endurance entries have tanked just like ours did. They were able to keep it going longer but as the regular teams finally fade out of it there is no one replacing them - our exact same issue. As for NOLA - while I personally liked going there - not enough racers do and you have to go with what your customers want.

    Had you been at the first 5 rounds??? It rained every round. And the first 2 were nearly freezing. It was absolutely miserable My first 3 years of racing in Texas I didn't race in the rain once, and I raced every round. The weather we've had has been extremely abnormal.

    Thanks for the clarification gentlemen. I am very concerned about the survival of the club.

    Im curious about Friday trackdays that at beginning of lawsuits and as far back as 201.
    Cmra let lonestar run those with the claim they lost money doing them.
    Yet after lonestar stopped doing them Cmra took over.
    So if you kill BBE due to not making money wouldn't you have stopped Friday trackdays long before BBE?
    Its been said numerous times they lost money on Friday trackdays.

    I have an idea for y’all? Shut down the internet and message boards and see if the grids grow. It might get people off there butts where YOU LIVE IN THE REAL WORLD AGAIN :Poke: And Jordan back when I started racing there we’re plenty of cold or rainy racing weekends! And we had bias ply tires , I bet most of you have NEVER rode on . No tire warmers. And no rain tires! But we would still go and RACE ! I think that the new racers are getting softer :confused: or the old ones are getting more sour o_O

    That was only a handful of customers, the vast majority didn't care a bit. I changed it more due to rider confusion because of what the screen makers put out than to what people wanted :D

    Pity.

    Endurance racing is such an excellent way to improve your riding.

    - Lots of track time
    - Not so intense that you can’t try different stuff
    - Fast guys pass you and you can try to hang onto them for a few corners to see what they are doing differently...

    Well if they hadnt put all those beginner bikes and pushed that then no one would have strayed from real bikes.
    Opps.
    Seem someone on BOD likes them.
    Kinda like the motard class that someone on BOD wanted on track.
    Imagine that.

    The ultw ebdurance was insanely popular before the person youre likely talking about switch over. Also it's just much easier than BBE. Not many racers can ride a big bike for an hr, most can ride a little bike for an HR.
