Now that the 2019 schedule is out are there any rule changes ? I like the way they set it up where drivers can race both midwest and west if they want to.
Must be a huge bump then. For example, lights alone are around $25k/night, plus staff, security, accommodations, hospitality, track rental/prep, etc. knocking a night off is saving them in the triple digits per weekend. Lucas is putting on the races for content for TV. All they need is one really cool night of racing for the content. Notice all single weekend races are night races because it looks amazing under the lights for TV. If they do a double header weekend it is always a day race and also at a track where they either own or have the rights to. Do this cuts down HUGE costs on Lucas’s end. Lucas is not in the business of putting on “races” they are in the business of putting on “shows” just like NFL/NHL/MLB/Etc.Not the way Lucas does things. One less day is bump in the road.
