SRX Championship

What is this madness????

https://racer.com/2021/01/04/srx-unv...2021-schedule/

It apparently is something like a race of champions type series featuring identical cars on short ovals.

The story doesn't have a picture of the actual car yet, so not sure what is happening, but they have a schedule!

SRX 2021 SCHEDULE

June 12, 8 PM, ET – Stafford Motor Speedway (Stafford Springs, Conn.)
June 19, 8 PM, ET – Knoxville Raceway (Knoxville, Iowa)
June 26, 8 PM, ET – Eldora Speedway (New Weston, Ohio)
July 3, 8 PM, ET – Lucas Oil Raceway (Brownsburg, Ind.)
July 10, 8 PM, ET – Slinger Speedway (Slinger, Wis.)
July 17, 8 PM, ET – Nashville Fairgrounds Speedway (Nashville, Tenn.)

I think it is meant to be used like one.

The design reminded me of something that would be in a Cars movie. Draw some eyes on the front and it's good to go.

And built like one as well. It will be a door banging "touring" car style event for sure.

Since Ray built it and has been running his kit hot rod in HSR I'm hoping he brings one of these with his Vette and old 24 stock car

Jimmy Magnusson should be qualifying in the top 5 on the gridJimmy Magnusson should be qualifying in the top 5 on the grid
Looking at the lineup it kind of just looks like an old man championship.

Well yes, it is a fun series for established drivers to play on an even field with similar setup cars and be entertaining. It's not a feeder or development series, it is purely about having fun on a race track with fairly tough cars and putting on an entertaining event. It's not about lap times, being the fastest series on dirt, becoming a world champ or anything else.

True but you could still do that with 'active' drivers.
Probably contract issues are a reason for not seeing these drivers.

Contract, time, desire, timing, there are a multitude of reasons why drivers would not be able to make a race during their season. I don't think contracts regarding being a Chevy/Ford/Toyota guy would be much here as they aren't using a styled car but rather Ray's designs. But there may be rules about only X number of other appearances and guys have those booked already. Think Larson's old deal restricted his midget playtime to a certain number of events each year only as a common example, people would see him at all kinds of midget events but only ran Chili Bowl and one other as that used his seat time and for a while he couldn't even run there.

Don't forget everyone, Race 1 this weekend June 12 from beautiful Stafford CT. Ok, no idea where that is in Connecticut but it's a paved slight banking super mod track.

Stafford is 30 miles northeast of Hartford CT, and 20 miles southeast of Springfield MA.



Fun fact: Stafford Motor Speedway is owned and operated by Jack Arute's family.
