From the President

Well, it’s been a month since I took over the top spot from my long time friend “Wild Bill” Barnhart and the first thing I need to say is Thank You to all of the fans, drivers, crew members and Promoters who have come up to me at the tracks and offer words of encouragement and support as I get used to this new position of president. I need your help and here is what I need. I need for all of you that want to receive the newsletter by e-mail only to e-mail me at and let me know. I realize that you may have done this with Wild Bill but I want to be sure and have your latest e-mail address. Please include your name with the e-mail so I know for sure who it comes from.

We also sent out the 2009 raffle tickets with the newsletter...
