Probably already being done, but Memorial Day for the USA! (Please do some sales too (the Camaro SS with that American decal *wink wink nudge nudge))
Munchkin: To people that make a game that can be ridiculous, fun.

Canada: Calgary Stampede, held from July 8-17 this year.  It's the most iconic/well-known Canadian festival in the world.

From Wiki:  The Calgary Stampede is an annual rodeo, exhibition and festival held every July in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The ten-day event, which bills itself as "The Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth" attracts over one million visitors per year and features one of the world's largest rodeos, a parade, midway, stage shows, concerts, agricultural competitions, chuckwagon racing and First Nations exhibitions.

http://www.calgarystampede.com/

The best track to represent the spirit of this festival would have to be Nevada.  The most recent exclusive Canadian event (which was almost 4 months ago :-| - meanwhile Americans have gotten 3 exclusive events THIS month alone!) allowed us to use any car; it would be nice to restrict the car selection more, in order to showcase cars that aren't used as much.  Perhaps it could be a B-class only cup?  I would love to be able to use the Holden Coupe 60 in an event.

I´m not sure how many Chileans play this game. I´ve seen a few of us around in the LB but it would be nice to have a cup for us, since we´ve never had one.
18-19 September: Independence day and Glory to the Armed Forces day.
It would be nice to see one. Hopefully not MPE.

For INDIA, the most important upcoming festivals/days are:
1) Independence Day, 15th August
2) Krishna Janmasthmi, 25th August
3) Ganesh Chaturthi, 5th September
4) Dussehra, 11th October
5) Diwali, 30th October
We would love to see Regional Cups for these occasions and at least for the highlighted ones if all are not possible. 

Also, could we have a Monsoon Cup? This is an important time for us. It is a time for celebration in many parts of the country. And since the US had a Spring Cup some time ago, I don't see why we can't have a Monsoon Cup. And the monsoon season is nearly upon us. This Cup could be organized sometime in the next 2 weeks. 

Thanks!

Agree with Saurabh, India must have more specific cups such as monsoon cup, Ganesh Charturthi cup,diwali cup,holi cup,republic day cup,navratri cup which are important seasons of India
