I know all about Miami; I have visited 5 times and have read all of Carl Haisen books so I am a bonafide expert! People will be bribed, a few legs will get broken, the Cuban Mafia will be paid-off and the race will happen.  ;)

This is usually the beginning of the end for pie in the sky races. Is Miami going down?

We have reported that Liberty Media is holding fire on publishing the 2019 calendar because of the extended negotiations about a race in the Florida capital.

They're moving the race to Tallahassee?

Miami is not the capital of Florida as the article suggests, Tallahassee is. If that's an example of how accurate the story is, it's worthless. Liberty seems to have the same fixation with skyline races Bernie had. If they go on this way, my days as a fan are limited.

It always struck me as kinda weird that most capitals in the world are the biggest cities, but in the USA and Canada that's rarely true.  Our national capitals are out of the way swamps, our state/provincial capitals are usually truck stops.

In Arizona, Phoenix is the capital and the largest, too large, bet on water shortages not too far off. My sister lives in Indiana, Indy is the capital and the largest city.

I think Jericoke is referring to a country's major capital city, not a state?  (in other words, Scotland > Edinburgh, England > London, France > Paris etc).

But ... then again, I could be talking utter waffle???

I was referencing both national and provincial/state.  Of course, there are states/provinces where the largest city is the capital, but those are the exception, not the rule.

NYC, LA, Chicago, Miami, Philadelphia, Seattle, Montreal, Vancouver, Calgary, some of the largest and most influential cities of North America, are all capitals of nothing.
