This poll is for our information only, it is not a guarantee that the event will be held at the track that scores best in the poll. The poll ends on May 27th.

As you know by now, the Daytona International Speedway is being repaved so we have to move the ROC for this year. The two tracks we use that have the weekend open are Heartland Park Topeka and Homestead Miami Speedway. While there are advantages to both facilities there are also disadvantages to each, so as far as that part of the equation goes, it is up to you to figure out which gets your vote. This poll is not the final say on the location of the event, but it will give us a better feel for which facility to proceed in negotiations with.

For reference, I've calculated some approximate driving distances for each region. For Riders from the Mid-Atlantic, Atlantic  and Northeast, the distance is almost identical, roughly 1290 miles. Midwest riders it's 1450 miles to Homestead and 600 to Heartland Park. Riders in Florida, Heartland Park is roughly 1500 miles from South Florida. Southwest riders see the most dramatic difference, Homestead is 2400 miles and Heartland Park is 1300. Great Plains riders have the reverse of the Florida distances, less than 300 to Heartland Park and 1500 to Homestead.

Please vote based on your likelyhood to attend the event. If you know you are not going to attend regardless of location, please do taint the results by voting.

Thank you for your support of CCS Racing.

wow.. tough call in some ways. I should be biased to race Homestead since it is only 5 hrs. away, but the chance to ride a track i have never ridden?? Gotta hold my vote for a bit to think about it!!

If it's @ Topeka, I'll definately attend.  Homestead and even Daytona would not be a consideration.  Daytona was fun (once) but I've got no real desire to go back particularly since it's become more of a Nascar configuration since I last raced there.

TOPEKA!

It is difficult for me to understand having the national championship race at one of the most extreme South East locations in the country.  At least HPT is roughly in the center of the country.

I get that Daytona is a tradition, but if that venue is off the table something in the middle of the country makes sense.

If at HPT I will definitley be there.

I agree, wholeheartedly, with HPT. Excellent track- great facilities, etc. I would love to one day race @ Daytona, but the distance is too extreme. +1 for giving those of us in the middle of the nation a chance to host CCS' Race of Champions!

You know- I agree with this. However, given that Homestead and HPT are the only two with the dates open, I chose HPT.

I think the ROC should be somewhere like Barber, or Road Atlanta consistantly. If all regions are invited to come out and race one another, then it only makes sense to host such an event at the most geographically nuetral of tracks.

I may get a negative karma or two for this, but to me- anually hosting the ROC in the same, most extreme location (geographically speaking of course) location makes the "Race of Champions" more like the "Race of Those Who Showed Up".

Fire away with the negativism, but I honestly feel the ROC should be held on middle ground for all regions.  Or, to be equally fair- have the ROC change each year, allowing each region to host it.

Just ideas....

been discussed before.
Barber.. tiny and slow. Fun yes.. but the track is too small for huge grids is what the consensus is. And, you never get out of 4th gear. And now ya got me "doing it wrong"  :ahhh:

Choice A) Homestead
Choice B) Topeka

take "where it should be" to another thread??  :blahblah:
