Heat Mars Otherwise Positive DIS Rallycross Debut; Track In Talks To Return Series
Published August 25, 2014
HOT HOT HEAT: In Daytona Beach, Ken Willis wrote if it "makes financial sense to those involved -- particularly Daytona’s bottom-liners -- there’s a future" for Rallycross at DIS. If there is a future, "let’s hope it’s either at night or a shoulder-season month when heat-stroke warnings aren’t necessary." This debut "wasn’t exactly a last-minute deal, but close to it, and the unfriendly August-afternoon date was reportedly necessary due to available windows on NBC." Willis: "Not sure if Rallycross is ready to grow at Daytona as a stand-alone show." But it "doesn’t take much imagination to picture Rallycross and Supercross sharing a weekend and at least parts of the same dirt track," creating two "profitable" nights instead of one (Daytona Beach NEWS-JOURNAL, 8/24).
