While some of my D3 friends will disagree , it never made any sense to move the Jeg's Sportsnationals race from it's Fall date to Memorial Day Weekend directly opposite the long standing D1 Maple Grove LODRS event .
By doing so ,it effectively removed a National event from the D1 racers schedule and also an out of Division LODRS race for the D3 racers.
As far as changing the location back to Columbus , It may not have the charm and amenities of Bowling Green , it looks to be a more central location for both Northeast and Central Division racers.

I for one am glad to see the National Open return to Bowling Green after being gone for 3 years.

So my vote is yes, a good idea.

Yes ,I sure remember it . ...Went many times.
my thoughts are based on the idea that the Jegs Sportsnational races are somewhat of a Regional event, and one that any Class or Sportsman racer looked forward to running , and the move of the race several years ago excluded a large group of racers.
