Our annual trek to the Toledo Speedway Bar & Grille for our March general meeting was once again well attended. ARCA President Ron Drager was on hand and told the crowd about the way ARCA and We also watched the year in review video from the 2011 ARCA season that is shown at the ARCA banquet. Then next we had General Manager Scott Schultz who informed all of us about the changes at both the Toledo & Flat Rock Speedways. Gary Lindahl was on hand to give us a report on his recent health challenge and the word is that He is doing great as He was also surprised with a 60th Birthday Party, Happy Birthday my long time friend and many more. To start off the meeting, Michigan Motor Sports Hall of Fame driver and mid-west standout, Danny Byrd came forward and he and I were able to chat a bit about his driving career. Danny Shared with us where and how He got his start in racing as well as where he ended it. Going off of my memory, Danny said He got his first start right at the Flat Rock Speedway and finished it off in 1979 with a big win down in Nashville.
