2012 Chump Car Schedule
Below is the 2012 Chump Car schedule. What caught my eastern eye was:
* Daytona on Memorial Day weekend. I've been to the 24 Hours of Daytona, but I'm impressed that Chump Car got a race there.
* Gateway in June. I didn't know if there would ever be another race there. I might go outside my HitList to try to make that one.
* Michigan International in August. When was the last time they had a road race there? Probably in the mid 1980's, I'd guess.
* Grand Bend in September. Is this the one in Ontario? If so, I don't think they have had wheel to wheel car racing there in the past. Have they, Will?
* Memphis in October. Another one where I wasn't sure if there would be another race. I won't be able to do that one though.
Missing from my neck of the woods that I can recall from this year are Roebling Road, Rockingham, Nashville (Darn. I was planning on trying to go to that one in 2012), and Toronto Motorsports Park (Glad I went to that one this year).
I'm sure there is something for just about everyone in this schedule.
