The seawall and pit area in Corpus are under construction that will probably not be finished in time for the race. Elaine Motl told us at our last TOPPS meeting most likely not this year, but Corpus would be back on and better for next year.

Corpus Christi always makes for a great time, a fun and challenging race and a great race for the fans to see.
As Jana said, due to construction this year is looking doubtful. The good news is that I have no doubt that Elaine and her crew will be back next year with an incredible race venue that will be even better for the fans and racers.
As for a replacement race, I would keep your fingers crossed and keep that weekend open. I'm thinking/hoping we are all in for a surprise...
