I heard it's up on Facebook. Can we get it on the forum or website? Excited to see what's happening next year!

Ditto^^^
Can we please get the schedule (and any other info) on the WRL website, or Forum?
Not everyone uses Facebook.
I check the WRL main website and Forum every few days, and was surprised to see that the 2017 schedule was posted on FB, yet no mention of it on the official WRL site.
Am I wrong in assuming that to find info about a business, I should look to their website? :?:

I don't do FB either. I figured out how to get on WRL FB page but it seems like it's all just one long list of threads stringed together end to end. I'm sure it's great for casual chit chat stuff but seems inappropriate for official notifications and important announcements etc.

Regardless the schedule posted so far looks great. We are definitely in for RA and Barber in addition to our local tracks

Where is the info on this race?? I'd hate to sign up for the CC race at Road Atlanta and find out later this race was a better choice.

The schedule shows Road America on May 5th and 6th which is a Friday/Saturday but the description shows Saturday 8 hour/Sunday 7 Hour.

Just wondering which is correct. Hoping it is Saturday/Sunday!

I can't wait for Road Atlanta, Road America, and Daytona. W00T W00T.

Finally I get to run some of the SE tracks. I haven't ventured down that way in years past for fear of too much unnecessary contact.

I'm glad to see that the full 2017 schedule is listed in the DLB racing registration website. That, along with the early bird price special for the first 10 teams registered seems like it is working, even at this early stage. It looks like races are filling up nicely. Many teams plan early, and the fact that some of the events were not available to register for in 2016, I think that hurt the attendance at some of them. I know things didn't work out in our market, but I hope WRL does not rule out trying to venture back this way soon. Hope to see all you guys at a race soon. Best wishes

Show up at Mid-Ohio. Bring more teams with. A good turnout will open the doors to more races.

Just went to High Plains Raceway and they have a track days (cars Saturday, motorcycles Sunday) listed on their calendar the dates the WRL race (April 22-23) is supposed to happen. It appears I can even register for those track days. So is the WRL race there going to happen? Thanks for an update, Joey.

I hope it is on - we are registered.

Guessing they haven't updated that calendar - If you go to the Carport/RV rentals through their website and MotorportsReg.com it shows the WRL weekend.

** Just looked and it is on their regular calendar now
