I wish D5 would start a little earlier, but that's not a big deal. Going next door, at least they finally separated Joliet and Indy. I never understood why anybody thought those two on back-to-back weekends was a good idea.
Yes - that's what it means Cliff. With the Regional format, sharing TAD/TAFC events with D-6, I don't think you'll see TAD/TAFC in Arizona anytime soon. It simply makes sense to race at Sonoma and Vegas - as it's easier for D-6 cars to come down there (especially Vegas with the (2) National Events scheduled week prior). Just the way the cards fall...Also, you can see which "Divisionals" have TAD/TAFC - if they are listed as REGIONAL - they have them. If it's just Divisional - they're not there.
