I think NASCAR needs to have an invitational road race like they did in the 90s at the Suzuka Circuit in Japan. Except maybe have it in Laguna Seca or Circuit of the Americas.

The only way a new IROC series would work is if it was done in the off season. The old IROC failed because towards the end, it was only NASCAR drivers. I can't imagine any possible scenario where races could be scheduled that would allow drivers from multiple series to attend during the season. The IROC that is held in Europe is just one weekend.

Are you talking about Michelle Mouton's special stage rally based event, or something else held on a tarmac circuit I've never heard about? shrug

When I read this thread, I thought of certain Camaro models, not "International Race of Champions"

I thought someone wanted to create a new Camaro that shared styling cues from the 1980s IROC Camaros.

I was at Indy for the Brickyard when they had the IROC race there. The only thing I remember about the race is I fell asleep watching it.

Just in case you have not figured it out; that model 3rd gen Camaro was named FOR, or in honor of, that race series. wink

I think the IROC series really lost is way and that is why it left a lot of bad tastes in peoples mouths. The last year they ran it they actually ran the road course at Daytona which was at least different.

I recently found an old video of the NASCAR invitational race at Suzuka on Youtube and that really had potential. It would be cool if when the Aussie V8 guys come to the US again they have an enduro race or two with NASCAR and Indy drivers as the second drivers. Maybe have a race in conjuction with the Indy Long Beach GP with Indy and Tudor Sports car drivers as the seconds. The next time they come to Austin maybe have it on a free NASCAR Sprint Cup weekend and get some of the Cup drivers to be the second drivers.
