What you guys are saying is just as true in the Midwest. Road America, Blackhawk, Gingerman, and Gateway are all within 6 to 8 hours from Chicago. If you are unlucky enough to live somewhere besides Chicago, it will be much worse for you. Then CCS throws 2 events in Omaha and an event in Alabama into the mix. Due to the travel expenses, I will only be contesting Formula 40 for sure this year. As a result, I will be spending as much to travel as to race. If there were half as many events in a smaller area, I'd enter several more classes each weekend. Overall, CCS would get more of my money.
