      > (Weekly Listserve Update #87). An impressive 28 new track visits were added during the past week for 14 different TrackChasers in ten states, six countries, and two provinces. Included in that group are 13 active group members and one of our project drivers. In addition, more complete or earlier dates were added for three project drivers. Of the 28 tracks added, 18 were from last weekend. For the first time in awhile, there were no midweek track visits with all 18 coming on the weekend.

      > Once again Mike Knappenberger led the way with five new tracks (plus two previously visited tracks as well) as he and his brother started the weekend at the USAC Sprint race at Kokomo, (future home track of Patsy Eckel), and then spent the rest of the weekend in Michigan.

      > We added four new tracks for Roland Vanden Eynde. The final two tracks from his trip to the UK added two to his Scotland total, while the past weekend found Roland at new tracks in both the Netherlands and his native Belgium. It was his 197th track in Belgium, as he edges closer to his personal goal of 200 tracks in his native country. The three new tracks added to the Database this week all were tracks visited by Roland.
