Stickman, I think I now know why driving a messily 1.5 isn't local to you - The IRL dropped your local race to you at Naz which was 20 minutes away from you. But whatever...
You know where my "local" IC race is now? 20 hours away. It used to be 10 minutes or less from my house and I haven't moved before or after.
Is 20 hours local? No. But its my closest IC track/event.
I havent read in detail about Baltimore.... but where they thinking they were going to make a profit in the first year of a start up street race? I sure hope not.
