Camera direction was pretty bad. Always showing the leader, ignoring drivers that took an early joker lap. Even the big jumps were rarely shown.

I watched some coverage and the racing was pretty good.
Not of a fan of the head2head races.

The area looked a bit like a wasteland. All the dust and lack of spectators didn't help either.

hoffman66 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
If they can get serious backing, the series has some potential, the tracks must cost a fortune to put up. and unless you are going to make them permanent this is unlikely to be something that moves around. You would need 4 or 5 venues t make it a series with some semi permanency, and race tracks are not likely to pay for it as what else can it be used for? nothing, it will soon be a dead white elephant like Silverstone's track.

Travis probably has the ability to pull this together as with the people he knows from motocross, they do this routinely on a smaller scale with supercross, every weekend, so it is possible, but it needs spectators like you get at Supercross, ie 20-50 thousand to make it worth the investment, and it is a lot easier to make a track in a baseball stadium than it it as a racetrack.

The other thing is it's Travis, first its MX, then stunt riding, then NASCAR, then Nitro Circus, then rallying, now this, he flits back and forth and if it doesn't work he will drop it, take the Nitro bit away and it just becomes US rallycross again which was a dismal failure.

Nice track (looks like European Autocross Championship ) but hard for the cars.

Heavy crash for Cabot:

Utah was still rallycross (with unnecessary jumping) in my personal opinion.

ERX last weekend was just short course off-road racing with cars; it was a short course circuit, with a bit blocked off as a joker.

The new electric cars that NRX is talking about running next year seem more like Extreme E trucks than rallycross cars, so NRX is shaping up to be the next iteration of LOORRS/COORS.

I have nothing against that (I actually really like short-course racing) but to me it isn't rallycross.

If the rest of the circuits this year are similar I wonder if some teams (specifically thinking JC Raceteknik) will last. The first two rounds must have already cost them a fortune in repairs.

Short course off-road tracks usually have small, high bumps. ERX had long, low jumps. I certainly enjoyed it.

With more ground clearance it looks like a Dakar car.

This weekend I was wondering if the Subaru's are specially built for these extreme tracks.
