Apparently, last year’s race at the Slinger Speedway was hugely popular with the fans. So, many were understandably furious when it was absent. Some even dubbed it an ‘L’ for loss for the fledgling series. All in all, the general consensus was that nobody appreciated the Slinger snub.

What awaits the fans for the second season of the SRX Series?

A few other fans were a little put out that Slinger was absent because it was their home track. There were some justifications, suggesting that the sport announced that the schedule would be different each year. Theoretically, the idea is to give people from different areas a chance to go and see the series in person. Meanwhile, others were also disappointed that their home tracks have not made it to the calendar.

Also missing from the calendar is the Knoxville Raceway, as well as the Lucas Oil Raceway and the Eldora Speedway. In other words, Five Flags, South Boston, I-55, and the Sharon Speedway are making their debuts. It is also worth mentioning that Stafford moves from the season opener to the third race of the season.
