    Right now, the schedule favors the Houston crowd quite a bit. The DFW crowd drives about 600 more miles (~10 hours on average, maybe), than Houston crowd does.

    Change NOLA to HPT and the difference is only about 200 miles. I get it, that HPT is a really long drive from Houston, but there’s also 4 rounds where you can probably stay at your own house, and run the full Sunday without getting home late.
    I don't think we were able to gets dates that worked with the rest of the schedule.

    Well, this schedule has me considering skipping some CMRA events to go race WERA at Barber and High plains with MRA.

    The proposed event at Heartland Park in April was dependent on an event at ECR in March. ECR did not have an open date in March. Heartland Park in March was too great a risk from a weather standpoint. While I agree that four rounds at Houston is not ideal its what we have until someone builds us a new track. We'll work hard to secure dates at ECR and HP in 2022.

    2021 SEASON SCHEDULE SNEAK PEAK!!

    Having raced in the Midwest, I agree that a HPT date in March is too much of a risk. We’ve left the old first TWS rounds of the year to drive back to 12” of snow before.

    Walter, I do appreciate your efforts to put the schedule together. I know it’s not easy, considering all other factors. I’ll keep my fingers crossed for ECR and HPT next year.

    Heartland Park had no availability in June, July, or August.
    MSR had no availability in March or April.

    I had heard that the reason we didn't do HPT after NOLA is that the CMRA didn't want two back to back long drives. From a N. Texas viewpoint it is only a slight longer drive and I would prefer it rather than have had a 4th Houston round.

    Dallas to NOLA: 990
    Dallas to HPT: 992
    Total for R2 and R3: 1982

    Houston to NOLA: 700
    Houston to HPT: 1468
    Total for R2 and R3: 2168

    Houston racers drive only 186 miles more

    With the current schedule for the NOLA and MSRH rounds...

    Dallas total: 990 + 556 = 1546
    Houston total: 700 + 80 = 780
    Dallas area racers drive 766 miles more

    If you look at the schedule right now

    Dallas total: 4514
    Houston total: 4076

    Dallas drives 438 more

    I left out San Antonio, Shreveport, OKC, and Tulsa cause they are just screwed no matter where we go.

    A lot of people “hear” things, but the man doing the schedule is telling everyone the challenges and why this schedule was set. There is no secret motive, this was put together in the best way possible.

    You can’t make everyone happy.

    I’ll be at all the rounds and thank you for releasing the schedule. I know it’s a difficult task and appreciate how fast this was released!

    And Kansas City. But I still think CMRA is the best club around. I just can't do the driving to most of the distant rounds anymore. Hoping to see my race family at Hallett and Cresson.
