FYI, High Plains is a Rocky Mountain Division event, not Midwest Division.

Very sad because it is a very fun track and it races very well.

Question for those familair with the Colorado/ Rocky Mountain region SCCA.  Why are the turnouts so small for SM?  Shortly after I moved out to CO, about 3 years ago, I attended an SCCA regional at HPR (as a spectator) and they had a single SM running with the SRF group.  Now jump forward a few years and there are three cars registered for a Majors race?

 

NASA Rocky Mountain region gets ~30 SM per event for their regional series...so what gives?

 

Genuinely curious as I hope to have a new car built this winter for the 2018 season.

If you come out to the Last Chance Majors look me up and I'll try to give you an answer up to the limits of my understanding.  Best to get me during lunch in the Pavilion as I will be an Operating Steward.

I definitely recommend making the drive to High Plains Raceway! It’s an incredible track with a ton of elevation change and a lot of good places for passing. Let’s get those entry numbers up!

It's the west of the Mississippi River curse.  Not many cars and longs distances to travel to get to tracks.  SCCA road racing has been struggling in this part of the country for years  

 

In my region there are probably less than 3 people who actively do more than one race weekend per year.  10 years ago there were probably 30.  All us young folks realize how much of a time suck and money drain it is.  I can do a track day event for 1/4 the cost and spend just as much or more time on track as a race weekend.  I go just as fast, have more fun and the only difference is it's not open passing.

Matt, I think your points are valid with exception to a track day being as fun as a race ;)

 

I'm more so curious how NASA attracts ~30 cars per event throughout the season and SCCA gets 5 cars for the same class in the same region?

 

Before selling everything to finish college, and move out to CO, I was racing with MARRS, NER, and SARRC so I am used to HUGE ultra competitive feilds.  Even the 30 car NASA feilds will feel small, but I am stoked to get back to racing.  Got back in a racecar for the first time in nearly 7 years this summer.  I have always raced with SCCA, but feel NASA is the more viable option out here currently.

 

Would be fun to hit up an SCCA Majors event or two per year, but don't know that I'll be able to hit enough SCCA events to get my National license back.
