You've got to be phucking kidding me!!!  It's a little late for an April fools joke.  And if this isn't a joke its just plain mean.  Looks like I'll be finishing out my CCS season with CMRA.

I was excited about the possibility of racing in my first ROC....not excited anymore because there is no way I'm making that trip.

I really am sorry to see the way this turned out...maybe someone will give us an explanation on why the majority winner was not chosen.

Homested infield is not flat.I have been racing with CCS since 85 and racing since the 70s and have raced at most tracks in the US .Homested is a fun technical track with elavation changes in the infield,a great facility and is a great choice for a Championship Race.

CCS typically has over 3000 licensed riders.  Only 161 people bothered to vote .. not really the majority of anything.

Try again, if everyone that voted followed the instructions for the poll......

'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.'

How many racers actaully attend ROC?

Just to be fair, here's quotes from the original post that started this topic....

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............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............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.

I personally won't be racing the ROC this season so I didn't vote due to the last statement quoted above, yet I am one of the 3000 licensed racers with CCS - the 161 votes in the poll is probably one hell of alot closer to the actual number of racers that may attend. Though the final results definitely showed a majority winner, they also weren't a landslide victory for HP (for example 80 or 90%). Don't get me wrong either, I also would have voted for Heartland Park if I was planning on racing the ROC this season.

I would be willing to bet that the poll results were probably also good leverage in negotiating an even better facility rental price with Daytona Motorsports Group about using Homestead for the ROC - Just my opinion!  :thumb:
