Fred Gramby Race- 3 April 2016 @ Englishtown.
Bob Lynch Race- 8 May 2016 @ Englishtown.
LTX Shootout-3 Sept. 2016 @ Bowling Green, Ky. ---Info
ISSCA Nationals-26 thur 30 July 2016 @ NOLA

This is the schedule that I have so far. E-mail me with your race dates.
What race track do we want to have the ECIRS Double Point Finale?
Island seems to be the most centrally located and they always accommodate us even if we have weather related date changes. I think the finals should go back to Island. I love Cecil the best but they don't show us the love that Island does. The consensus can decide on this.

To build on what Normy said above, Keith got us 3 ETown dates and Keith and I will work with Island to hammer out some other dates/doubleheaders with our buddies at Island.

Using last years schedule and the firm dates we have so far this year, here is a working template for 2016. Please try and fit your race on or around the dates below. We try to have at least 2 weeks between races for financial and family reasons.

SEE UPDATED POST BELOW FOR 'FINAL' VERSION OF SCHEDULE

We also have SUNDAY September 4th booked at ETown in case we need a makeup date. TBD and of course open for discussion.

Updated post above with new date for 4/23.

I also slightly revised it, we had one too many dates in there.

Keith and I will work with Island to fill in those dates. Jason B, Jim McC will work with us to make sure they can make there own races.

EDIT: UH-OH WE HAVE A PROBLEM!

SUNDAY MAY 8th is MOTHERS DAY. That's going to be a problem for a lot of us.

Many changes to schedule already, I updated my post above...

Nabby got us a doubleheader at Cecil Saturday, May 14th and the double points finale at Cecil Saturday, October 22nd. Nice work. We can also make that October date at Cecil a doubleheader if necessary and if they do a nice job in May.

The sponsors moved around a little, still a few open including the double points final, so act now to get in on it.

I will send email to ECIRS distro and keep updating here as well.

Post above updated again. Glen got us a sponsor for the double points finale at Cecil.

We are down to nailing down the Island Dragway dates and we need 2 sponsors for the May 14th doubleheader at Island.

My fellow ECIRSers;

With 4 (COUNT 'EM FOUR!) DOUBLEHEADERS and only 9 total dates on the schedule, make the 2016 ECIRS Race Schedule a priority by locking those dates in with your significant other NOW!

Go home and pencil, no wait, write them in PEN on the calendar! Don't be a wuss, she (he?) won't get mad. I mean, really...only 9 days out of 365, that’s all you need time off from your honey-do list days.

I’m no marriage counselor but that’s only 2% of the year for Daddy or Mommy to have some mental health days and go racing.

Regards,
W.C. DeBlasio, Jr.
ECIRS Public Relations Officer

Thanks for all the effort and keeping this series alive.
Hope to attend all races with a maybe for the nationals. But work on it.
It's been a team effort lately. Glen has sort of passed it to Norm. Nab, Keith, and myself have been doing the coordinating and scheduling, Norm's been running with the trophies/plaques/etc.

IT TAKES A VILLAGE!

Still haven't changed the oil from the last race of last year, but otherwise the Flambe is running strong as always. Had her our recently and she still wants to go sideways when it hits 2nd gear.
