Silly Season Returns:

2017 Speculation, Rumors, and Facts!

Well, the Christmas lights are glowing, cheeks are rosy, and there’s a spirit of happiness in the air….which must mean it is Silly Season time for the OSUSC Series!

Like nearly every race series to exist past, present, and future, the “offseason” usually generates a lot of speculation and guessing about what will – and will not – happen in the new year. We’ve heard everything from the allowance of pro drivers into the series to qualifying Santa’s sleigh for the GTV class (well, maybe not that one).

As you may have guessed, we decided to dedicate a fun show to discussing some of the current 2017 OSUSC rumors, share what’s true right now, and detail the how/why/when/what of what’s truly going to happen next year. Long story short, unless news comes from an official source such as Jimi, OPTIMA Jim, an official OSUSC Facebook or website post, etc., just assume it’s wrong!

To all of you who have listened faithfully this year, we thank you sincerely. Here’s to a happy and fun 2017!

-Rob & Jimi
