*May be moved to July or August
Many of these dates and venues correspond closely to this season's schedule. The NJMP race will be moved from the spring to mid-summer and Monticello Motor Club has been added in April. Road America will move to November, when the series can run a weekend date.
There appear to gaps in the schedule in July and August, ostensibly to either add some dates or for the staff at LeMons HQ to go on a three-week bender.
Events by region:
East (5): Monticello (April), NHMS (May), Summit Point (June), NJMP (August), NHMS (October)
South (2): CMP (March), CMP (September)
