I received news a few days ago that the first Jim Russell race weekend has been canceled. I was told it was due to lack of drivers in the race series. There were 5 drivers entered in the first race weekend, but they were all racing for free. I am referring to the race dated April 16-18. If anyone was planning on going to watch, this is your notice that it has been canceled.
With this unfortunate news, I am planning for the worst. They haven't said anything yet, but the series may be in financial trouble if they are canceling their first race weekend. I will be working hard at trying to find some money to do some one off races throughout the season. If the entire Jim Russell Championship Series season is canceled, my year will be very scattered, unfortunately.
I am looking at trying to run the Star Mazda race weekend at Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca next month. If nothing else, I will be going out to watch.
If anyone is going out to Long Beach this next weekend, have fun at the race track. Maybe we will run into each other while I am there.
