    Why would they? They have no use to own WERA. Anyone that is gonna feed to MA, is going to do so. 99% won't. No need for MA to buy a name, that isn't going to change who does and does not feed to them.

    Trainwreck I could give a heck

    FWIW I'm kind of excited, and I hope it works out great. I am basically right in the middle of the CCS Midwest Series tracks and the WERA North Central series tracks. I'd like to race both series again. Motorcycle racing is fuckin cool.

    I'm grateful that Kevin Elliot kept it going for so long. I'm looking forward to the modernization of registration, though. Seems that the complainers are always using that as their main gripe. (Then they don't show up anyway.)

    I think all of the tracks went up this year, VIR for example, motorcycle orgs just got flat out bid for the dates by the car folks. The clubs are getting the squeeze- god forbid they raise entry fees $5 they are accused of destroying racing- yet the track rental goes up 20%.

    Enjoy it while it lasts, guys!

    Nothing to add except I used to mail my entries in for Moroso and all FL CCS races with a money order from the post office. One stop shop, money order, envelope, stamp! I remember calling Henry to make sure they got there, cut em close many times lol.

    Not sure, been a while since I last got info and it was around that 55k mark which is just too much that far off from enough racers to pay the bills.

    It's funny, we've looked at doing that, have plenty of access to code monkeys to get it all set up easily enough. However every single event we do I see the issues we catch manually be it the registrars answering questions about classes or the person doing input catching illegal machinery, duplicate entries (one rider entering tow classes that are on track at the same time) and getting all of those issues fixed before the grids even get printed makes the entire event run way way way smoother. If it were a track day where the rider can only enter the group they're in the membership in that would be totally different. Can't mess that up, when they can enter 25 plus classes it is a bit easier to have mistakes.

    If I recall, I think Evolve is still doing track days at VIR. Sure would be nice if one race org could get a weekend again.

    It would be cool but I'd bet it won't happen. No clue why but it truly seems like VIR just doesn't want racing motorcycles there.

    it's a shame because NC Bike is not a suitable replacement for VIR. it's cheap to rent, but facilities and paddock are garbage.

    I was told VIR offered Mother's Day Weekend (2nd week in May) and MA said no. I was also told the Car club that took the MA weekend offered double $$

    And the track is just not safe...

    there's a lot worse out there IMO... raced NC bike once (first time a race other than moto gladiator i think), with CCS little over 2 years ago. Mark, myself and Stefano went out and had air fence moved in front of the armco mid way through the lap before a big circular turn (there's a chicane added there now i saw on some recent onboard vid so bit safer but not sure i'd like it more this way). T1 after the long front straight has questionable run off.. some other spots are questionable.. but overall i've seen worse safety issues at some other tracks, but indeed. not a 10-of-10 for safety..

    When I asked Kevin about it after he stopped going back to RA (last 2-3 years), he said the same thing....that every time he did go there, he lost close to $10k. Sucks, because it's one of the best race tracks in the country, which makes sense why it's so expensive.
