The Presidents Thoughts for March!

March 4, 2012 2012 MinutesUncategorized

As we head into March it means that the local racing season can’t be too much further away and the preparation of race cars and tracks is surely kicked into high gear. Before we know it we will be back at our favorite tracks watching some excellent racing action.  We have had one of the mildest winters I can ever remember and that has enabled many of our speedways to do some outside work that they normally would not have been able to do. It was great to see the racing at Daytona and it is also good to see NASCAR ramp up and get going for the year but the truth is, I just can’t wait to get to my local tracks and smell the racing fuel, hear the engines, the squeal of the tires and see some paint trading as two drivers come down for an exciting finish to a great race.

I was pleased to see al those that attended the February meeting and voted in favor of the revision to our constitution and by-laws. , as well as our Board of Directors really hated to see the club have to raise the cost of being a member of the club that is the “Best Deal in Auto Racing” but with increasing costs of doing business it became a necessity for us to continue in the great fashion that we have been for many years. Effective on March 1, 2012 the cost for memberships rose from $10.00 to $15.00 for a single membership and from $15.00 to $20.00 for a family membership. I look forward to seeing you at the tracks this summer and continuing to enjoy the fun and camaraderie we have had these past years.

Let’s Go Racing!
