Today we are saddened by news of the passing of a long time club member, Bob Free.
Most of us called him Free B. He was a big supporter of our Children’s Christmas Party for many years, as well as our Annual banquets. Personally I knew Free B. for nearly 20 years, and as a club member, he just grew on those he meet and talked too. Racing was the sport that he loved.
The entire Board of Directors and the whole membership send our thoughts and prayers to his friends and family. God’s Speed My Friend!!

First thing I’d like to pass on a Very Special Get Well to Barbara LoPiccolo wife of our very on Vito LoPiccolo. Barbara has been in the hospital for the last few weeks and we wish her a speedy recovery. Well the season is over and all the Champions have been crowned and everyone can take a few days to rest up from a busy year. ( YEH RIGHT!)

Our 38th Annual Awards Banquet will be here before you know it so mark it on your calendar and remember to get your tickets early. The date is January 17. 2003 and there is more information coming soon.
Great to see some of our members that helped out at the Owosso clean up day. All involved did an outstanding job. Also, great to see that Tri-City Speedway is back up and running on Thursday nights. Not very often that a track closes and can reopen again. Best of Luck to the new owners for the rest of this season and hope all goes well in the future. If you get the chance try and stop in and check them out.
