I think that was a hypothetical date set before the manufacturer withdrawal. I was told The Speed crew was at Sno Drift just in case the money was found to air the show, which might still be a possibility.
We were told at Sno-Drift that the TV package is going to happen per SCCA. Money did come in and thanks to Subaru and I do not know if others helped as well. Just know that Subaru did kicked in to help.
