i KNOW i dont have anything to do with CTS or Texas Racing anymore. But why do the NASCAR thing if they are only running 8 events. Unless i dont understand the NASCAR points system anymore 8 races will not allow anyone to be able to win the State or National Titles. So correct me if im wrong but seems to be a waste of time and money to me.

State and National titles are decided by a racers best 16 (I think) races. For a racer that is only racing at CTS, it will probably be useless to run under the NASCAR banner - except maybe points fund money? For a racer that plans to run both tracks and make a title run at HMP, CTS will do nothing but help. If you have a few bad races at HMP and a few good races at CTS, the bad races are replaced with the better ones from CTS. Now, depending on car count, your worst race at HMP could still be better than your best at CTS... we will wait and see I guess.
