This just in from RPM:<BR><BR>"Twice in one year, RPM Racing L.L.C., the WERA South Central regional affiliate is introducing a new venue to fill its Round 7 near Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The date for the RPM Regional Final is September 14-16 with an open practice on Friday. This is to replace Texas Motor Speedway being shut-down due to repaving the NASCAR oval.<BR><BR>"The new speedway is named Grand Bayou Circuit, aka No Problem Raceway. It is located 35 miles Southwest of Baton Rouge. It is a combination drag strip and road coarse. The track is officially 14 turns, 1.8 miles in length, 50 feet wide, and has asphalt mixed with limestone. RPM will host a full weekend of races to include the final rounds of the Coca-Cola 4 Hour and HRD Mini 2 Hour Endurance on Saturday. Sunday will play host to Mini Sprints, Vintage and a full WERA Sportsman Sprint schedule.<BR><BR>"The RPM Steering Riders Committee (Harold Hixon, Scott Howse, David Kagan, Greg Abbott, and Pete Martins) will have made final adjustments to the track safety before the race weekend.<BR><BR>"Go to to view shots of the track.
