Title: 2009 Schedule Changes
Post by: Cheryl on August 19, 2008, 10:04:47 PM
Lou and I just got back from hauler parking and tech inspection at the Bristol track in time to hear about these announcements on XM: 

Busch race added to Iowa (Yeah, the people there deserve a race!) on 1 Aug.

Labor Day race moved to Atlanta (night race)

CA will have a chase race sometime in Sept I think.

Talladega 2nd race moved to 1 November.

Interesting, but too bad that CA didn't lose a date completely.

Edit:  Oh yeah, Chicago takes Atlanta's truck date.  That stinks IMHO...

Ken,  I know I've seen Matt Crafton's truck live before, but it was downright blinding today in the bright sun.   :laugh:

BTW, someone just called to Claire's show and pointed out the new Talladega date will be Halloween weekend.  Interesting...so that pretty much means they are now getting the old fall Rockingham date (we enjoyed many really funny Halloween weekend at the Rock in the past).
